Thanks to my hopper pass, apart from the water parks we could do every Disney park we wanted too. Well of course Animal Kingdom had to be on that list!
What's not to love?! Not only do you get Disney goodness but you get to see animals too huzzar!
Thanks to one of our lovely American friends who actually works in Disney our first stop was the Safari. We're so glad we listened to her as when we arrived the que was 20 mins, when we got off the que was well over an hour.
The safari was amazing. We got to see Zebras, Elephants, Hippos, Giraffes, Rhinos and lots more all close up and personal. Our driver was amazing too, she encouraged lots of questions and was super friendly!
While we were on Safari, one of the Ostriches decided that they were going to stand in the car path and not move until one of the rangers came to move them on, meaning we were on the Safari for close to 45 mins rather than the 22mins advertised. However, no one minded as there was so much to look at!
Not only do you get to see these beautiful creatures up close but you also learn about how you can help save them, their living habits, the care they receive and about how the safari was created.
Next we headed over to the Lion King show which was unbelievable. If it had been in London I would have happily paid £30-£40 each to go and see it. Amazing live actors with puppets, singing, dancing and audience participation. An amazing experience that I know I'll be talking about for years.
Next up I reverted to being a child (I did no adulting while in any of the Disney parks...) and went on Bugs Life 4D. Wow.
Not only do you get to be an honary bug but you also get stung, sprayed with acid, have spiders fall out the ceiling and have to remain seated while all the other bugs leave by crawling on your legs and back. It's such a great little show that's well worth a visit!
It was a really lovely day and we spent a lot longer in the park that we expect!
Have you been to Animal Kingdom?
Until next time,
