Day 2 - The Animal Kingdom

Orlando, United States

December 16, 2008

We arrived at the Animal Kingdom, parked in the Unicorn lot, then took a tram up to the main gate. Once in we made our way toward Discovery Island and the Tree of Life (1). After arriving at Discovery Island we decided to try our luck at getting onto the Mount Everest ride, so we made our way over to Asia by cutting through DinoLand U.S.A, stopping to take pictures with Winnie the Pooh and friends along the way.

Since we had arrived so early we were able to get right onto Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain without much wait. (17)Expidition Everest was amazing! Nick and Lollie even rode on it twice! After that exhilarating ride, we needed something a bit calmer, so we went back to DinoLand U.S.A and watched Finding Nemo – The Musical. The show was amazing! When the show ended we decided to stay in DinoLand and went to ride DINOSAUR!

From there we made our way back to Discovery Island, watched It’s Tough to Be a Bug and had a bite to eat before heading over to Africa to hitch a ride on a Kilmanjaro Safari.

After that we went down to Camp Minnie-Mickey to watch the Festival of the Lion King, which was an amazing stage show.

When the show ended, Nick and Lollie decided to head back to the condo, while mom and I stayed at the park to explore a bit more. We first went up to Rafiki’s Planet Watch/Conservation Station and meet Jimminy Cricket and Rafiki.

After hitching a ride on the Wildlife Express Train back to Africa we walked through the Pangani Foreset Exploration Trail. While on the trail we saw monkey’s, meerkats, gazels, and silverback gorillas.

We then headed over to Asia and walked along the Maharagah Trek. Here we were able to see very big bats, weird birds, a type of deer and tigers!

Before we left the park we caught Mickey’s Jingle Jungle parade.

After the parade Mom and I caught a bus to the Magic Kingdom, where we were going to attend the special Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas event!
