We chose to go to Disney’s Animal Kingdom today. My pass had a picture of Goofy. That probably was not a coincidence!
We had several memories flood back to us as a result of our visit there ten years earlier.

We began our adventure inside the Tree of Life at the presentation of “It’s Tough to be a Bug.” It was just as enjoyable as last time.
The next stop was the Birds of Prey show, something we had not previously seen. It was an outstanding show. The two people on stage interjected some humor as they displayed the skills of several different birds of prey. I must say the bald eagle was impressive.
The next stop was something the kids and I had been looking forward to since our last visit, Expedition Everest. When we were at the park the last time, they were still in the process of building the ride. Only Tyler, Hillary, and I opted to ride it. We had to stand in line for about 45 minutes. Regardless, it was a great ride! In my opinion, it beat the Hulk-coaster hands down.
We stopped for lunch in the Africa section of the park. We had some delicious chicken curry that was about as expensive as what we had eaten at Universal Orlando.
After lunch, we went to the safari ride. Unfortunately, it was another 45-minute wait in line until we finally made it to our safari vehicle. However, once we did make it, the ride was terrific. It is enjoyable to ride through the wildlife habitat rather than just looking at the animals over a railing or through some glass.
Our last ride of the day was Dinosaur. The four of us remembered it from our previous trip. Once again…45 minutes. It was fun despite the wait. As soon as we were off the ride, three of us decided they wanted to get face paintings.
After our day of walking, we were all beat by the time we got back to the condo.
