We all took a bathroom stop and this is how the walls were decorated, and Lizzie found an otter!! Lizzie LOVES otters. She has a beanie Otter that she's had since she was 2 and she just simply is in love with otters. And she was so excited to take this pic.



I already printed it out and she's going to pick a frame out for it, and she wants to put it in her room.

So when we went inside to the Conservation Station it was ice cold AC, it felt so good. We could see alot of animals through the glass and there was a lady giving a little speech on tarantulas which she had, it was so gross, but the kids liked it of course. And then we saw all of these characters hanging around, there were no lines. It was awesome.





Anthony was just hanging out with this tiger while we waited for Pocahontas, she took a little break.







Then we went back out to the train and rode the relaxing ride back to where the Safari was.....and this is where I will leave you for now, gotta upload more pics.

Next we go to the Tree of Life and Dinoland.......And DO ANY OF MY CRAZY CHILDREN ASK ME TO RIDE EXPEDITION EVEREST WITH THEM!!!

Now, this night was EMH. So the park closed at 5pm and EMH was from 5-8....That was so awesome!!!!

So, i'm not sure if I posted any of the rides we went on at the start of this TR. If not, can anyone guess? Did my kids want to ride this beastly mountain, and if so, who was it? Take a guess. And not you Nicole, you already know

I am loving this TR! It is so exciting to see the world through the eyes of the kiddos....Anthony and Manny look just alike....I love your family photo with Mickey very cute indeed. The girls looked super excited in every photo thus far...I bet its all they talk about now....

I am going to take a guess and say Yes to Everest and it was Anthony and/or Emily who wanted to go?

I can not wait to find out!

Did you guys go to Festival of The Lion King while at Camp Minnie Mickey? That's a must see on our list!

We also love Pizzafari. It's so fun looking for all the hidden Mickeys on the wall murals. It also helps that the food is quite tasty.

Glad you didn't skip Rafiki's Planet Watch. We always take the train over. Did you take pictures of the murals. If you did, go back and look at them closely. There are tons of hidden Mickeys there.

Great AK update! I'm so bummed we missed you on this day, but I understand your excitement being your 1st full day! It looks like you got a lot done! I can't wait to see if you rode EE! It's a great roller coaster. I got to ride with Amber (bertegirl) this time!

Caught up and on board.

You have a very cute family. Also, from what I've seen so far, I like your eating-style. Pizza! I usually hit several of the pizza-serving establishments during a WDW stay.

I'm loving the TR! The Animal Kingdom experience is great, I am kind of experiencing your trip vicariously through your report. My kids were pretty ride focused so we didn't see all the characters. On our next trip we are going to go the conservation station-- we didn't make it this trip-- it looks like you got to meet some of the hard to find characters!
My middle son is terrified of the characters so it fun to see all your sweet family character pics! Most of our character pics are sans one child!

The song for your daughter was definitely a Magical Moment. We had a few of those MM's but never a song! How wonderful!

Looking forward to more of your TR!

I was at the All Stars Movie's Toy Story section from May 9 - May 18th as well. I was the crazy mom who went with her two pre-schoolers by myself so I was generally seen pushing a very big and heavy double stroller. And boy was it hot then but it beats the rain that came later.

I'm really enjoying your trip report and looking forward to reading more.

Yeah, we were amazed with Rafiki's planet watch. Loved it!! Unfortunately we did not see Festival of the Lion King, it's on our to do list for next year. I'm glad we left some good stuff to look forward too

Yeah, we did seem to have a lot of Pizza the first couple of days, but that calms down alittle after this day. We did eat other things. But we do love pizza, and the kids hardly ever say no to pizza.

Thank You, the guy that sung that song for us was definitely amazing, he made quite a magical start to our day.

We were on the first floor in bldg 10 which was right next to the main bldg before you went though the doors to "Andy's Room". I had the 5 yr old boy and 3 year old girl and I was generally heard to be yelling for them throughout Disney. I never thought it would actually get harder as my DD got older.
