Animal Kingdom and Expedition Everest

Posted Saturday, February 3rd, 2007 11:19 pm GMT -6 in Travel

On a cloudy, cold and rainy day, we visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom today with my brother and his wife. The weather was, of course, still very warm to us (although I did add a jacket to my shorts and shirt).

We headed straight to Expedition Everest and rode it three times back to back to back. It’s really a well-done attraction, with lots of great Nepalese/Tibetan detailing (I’ve uploaded some pictures in the Walt Disney World photo section).

The rest of the day in a nutshell: lunch at Restaurantosaurus (the fancy Animal Kingdom McDonald’s), a ride on Kilimanjaro Safaris, back to Asia to watch Finding Nemo – The Musical, a fourth ride on Expedition Everest and two rides on Primeval Whirl. Half of the group skipped those last two, opting to see the Festival of the Lion King instead. My brother knew some of the people there, so they got to sit in the front row and my youngest got to be an assistant in front of the whole crowd.

We stopped at Super Target on the way home, picked up some food for dinner (and Super Bowl snacks) and watched the movie Cars for a nightcap. I listened to some of the Wild game online and can’t wait to see them later this week (against Florida no less).

Tomorrow: sleep in, then football all night. Go Bears! Go Tony!
