On Thursday we went to Animal Kingdom. This was set to be our longest and hottest day of the whole week. We had no scheduled break because this park closes at 8pm and we had a dinner reservation in the park at 6pm. We arrived at 8:15 and had to wait on the park to open. Again we watched an opening show to open the park. Jamie went to get us a fastpass for the Safari ride and the kids and I headed to Dinosaur Land. We rode the Triceratops Spin twice while we waited on him. When Jamie came we all rode Dinosaur. This was the scariest ride that we rode all week, Jamie and I both were scared. The kids liked it though. After that we went and looked at some animals but it was so hot they were all sleeping.
(This picture was taken on the safari bus with no zoom of a giraffe eating right next to us, it was amazing)
We stopped and had a snack and tried to cool off. It was only 10:30 and we were already dripping wet. After our snack we went to the Nemo Musical Show. Luckily this was a 40 minute show inside an air conditioned building. After the show we had a nice BBQ lunch but we had to sit outside in the heat. After lunch we rode the safari and went to see a few characters with little wait.
We were getting very hot again so we went to the the Lion King, which is air conditioned. This is my favorite show from the whole week. Zachary had to pee right after we had waited in line for 20 minutes just to get into the show and we were determined not to get out of line, so we waited until we had seats and then Jamie left to take him. After that we went to a Pocahontas animal friends show, but it was outside and hot!! Next we decided to go and ride Expedition Everest, but Zachary was not tall enough and Karson did not want to ride. Andrew and I rode it first, and Jamie went and rode next. At this time it was only 5 and we were ready to eat and go. We decided to try to get into our restaurant early and I was so glad that they were able to seat us immediately. The food was delicious, and we left and went to bed early tonight.
