Krienke's Take on DisneyWorld: Animal Kingdom

Aniaml Kingdom may not be as stimulating as Magic Kingdom but it's so good for the soul.  You will find serenity in the nature that is all around you. 


If you've always dreamed of going on a safari you will be amazed with the Kilimajaro Safari. I knew that this experience was going to be at the top of my dad's wishlist so I was sure to get a  FP for it.  If for some reason you are unable to get a FP, I do think the ride/experience is worth the wait.  The animals were extremely alert, and they felt very close.  The natural habitat built for them was top notch, with  loads of space for them to roam without any fences.  It's truly a breathtaking sight to see.



The day was a slower paced, which was really good for all of us.  The kids had lots of freedom to roam without thick crowds and were so happy to encounter so many unique animals.  They received  a little booklet to guide their  learning about the different species and natural habitats throughout the park. 

FUN FACT!  Did you know that flamingo's turn pink because they eat so many shrimp?!?  Over time their white feathers turn pink.  Yep!  You learn something new everyday.

If you are a thrill seeker then you have to head over to Mount Everestte and experience the Yetti rollercoaster.  It goes forwards, backwards, sideways, and through darkness.  I would say that this was probably my favorite thrill ride but poor little Anya was traumatized by it.  Check out her face and body language in the picture.  Priceless! 


Finally we got to meet a few of the classic characters such as Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Goofy. It was hugs for the young and the old from Mickey and Minnie .
