Well, I'd have posted this sooner but I came down with a horrid cold as soon as I returned! *cough wheeze*
We stayed in the Fort Wilderness Cabins, they were very cozy! heh....smaller than I expected at least. Myself, my boyfriend, my cousin and her boyfriend, my other cousin and my friend who works at DLR were my crew. 6 people, what a crowd!
Day 1 - Animal Kingdom
We started our day by heading to get breakfast in Africa and decided to go straight to the Kilimanjaro Safari from there.
My friend who works at DLR said Expedition Everest was the absolute best of the best so we headed directly there next. Caught Turk walking off on the way!
And of course, the majestic Tree of Life.
And the ruins here were gorgeous, and had surprise Monkeys!
Thar she blows!
My friend was right, this ride was amazing and the only one we actually went on twice on the trip! I got an adorable shirt which you will see in later pictures. This is the most thrilling Disney ride I've ever experienced, they tend not to go for large drops or anything. The roller coaster enthusiast in me was pleased as punch.
Off to Dinosaur next, hey Sue!
The girls in the group had to get eaten by a trex....my cousin, Me, my friend, and my other cousin!
Afterward we headed to see Finding Nemo the Musical! It was super cute.
Next, off to Festival of the Lion King, this was SO AMAZING!!! Seriously, LOVED this.
Ran across Thumper on the way, that was super surprising and so cute!
After this most of our party got extremely tired and decided to head home, it was about closing so we headed to Rafiki's Planet Watch since it promised a petting zoo of exotic animals. Exotic meaning...goats and sheep. lol! But there were a couple of gorgeous birds! Couldn't pet those though.
From here the park closed and we decided to head to Magic Kingdom to catch Spectromagic and Wishes Fireworks! We got there really early bit it was INSANELY busy since it only occurs 3 times a week this time of year. We couldn't find any quick snacks as we hadn't eaten in ages and became pretty upset. 45 mins before Spectromagic I sent my boyfriend to scout out a place nearby and he, of course, couldn't make it back in time and someone managed to shove his food tray and spill the soda all over him so we were all in a down mood at that point. To top it all off, MK crowd control doesn't care if you have your children on your shoulders or if you climb on trashcans, so there was this MASSIVE crowd of people with kids on their shoulders in front of me and kids on trashcans and on benches and I couldn't see anything but the tops of the floats. -_- It was very depressing. At least the Chernabog float was tall and awesome. I dont even know what the between float performers or anything looked like.
At DLR they all make you sit down so the people behind you can see, and collapse strollers. I wasn't too impressed by the parade as it was though, kinda felt Vegas-esque. lol The fireworks were a lot like the ones that DLR had as well only less entertaining, minus Julie Andrews and minus the ride music.
Battery died on the way but I got a cool blurry shot from the boat on the way to MK.
Well, that's day 1, Ill post the rest of the days separately later! I also have a TON more photos than this and will post the link to my photobucket at the end.
I do, however, have a bunch of videos also at my Youtube: YouTube - thegr8k8's Channel
