Animal Kingdom!





I have always loved animals, when I was little Mom & Dad thought I would be a Vet! So it stands to reason that I really like Animal Kingdom at WDW. My favorite ride is the Safari ride. We also like Everest, and Dinosaur. If we are in the mood to get wet, Kali River Rapid ride is fun, but if I don't want to get wet, I pass on that!

The walking trails to view animals are also amazing. Depending on how much time you want to spend and how much your feet will stand up to there are a lot of animals you can see.












A black rhino!



Hippos!


Gators!

This is a baobab tree! 

Tommy's










Love the elephants!







Looks like Pumba was worn out!

Amelia and AJ on the Safari.


Zach tries the drums!

The walking vine.  How would you like to be in this get up all day long?!?


Conrad and Donna with Baloo and King Louie!



Everest!

Some drummers making lovely music that we wanted to dance to.



On the way into Dino...



Some of the ride pictures are so funny!

I finally got my Turkey leg!  Took all week, but I finally got it.  Just hadn't been hungry enough when we were around them in the other parks!


This display of cameras in the gift shop where Everest exits got my attention.  I have a small camera collection.


This is what it looks like when you ride Everest!

Again, the ride pics can be funny.  If Disney would incorporate the ride pics into the Photopass, I would be so happy.  I've been told that due to contracts, that is 5 years out.  Boo!!!

First time I've ever seen Thumper!  I think Thumper's wife is Petunia!  But I haven't looked this up, I'm really trying my memory!



Conrad got his pic too!




Do you like Animal Kingdom? What is your favorite? Do tell!

I like Animal Kingdom!! I like the Safari and of course The Tree of Life. But, my favorite ride is The Dinosaur Ride. I love it!! I can't/don't do the roller coaster rides, so Everest is out for me. The kids love it though. I also like the Tough to be a Bug show. We are planning a trip to Disney World next summer in June. We will be staying 12 days in WDW. I can't wait! My daughter in law has never been so we are excited to show her the "World of Disney"!! My sister is a Vacation Club Member and we are going with her and her family. (will be 8 of us in all)
Any pointers you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Oh Jeanette, here is my e-mail, funkcarrie @yahoo.com.
Send me an e-mail and tell me where you are staying and ages in your group. Any little ones? I have lots of pointers! Course if your Sister is a DVCer she may be experienced and not need any pointers! I have been 15 times and raised 4 kids there! I love to plan vacations!
