7/52: Animal Kingdom

We went to Disney the first time shortly after Kaylie turned five.  Myla was too young to remember and was scared of almost everything. Since Myla was turning five this year we decided to skip the birthday party and purchase the Florida Resident three day deal.  This weekend we went to Animal Kingdom and it was Brynlee's turn to cry on almost every ride.  We had quite a bit of rain, but luckily missed the two big downpours.  We started out on the Safari ride and lucked out with a great view of the lions and lot of time with the giraffes.  Unfortunately, our favorite show from last time (Lion King) was shut down, but Finding Nemo was also one of our favorites and we really enjoyed that (except for Brynlee of course).  We also enjoyed a few more rides and some fantastic ice cream. We really got lucky with timing when we happened upon the end (insert: best part) of the parade and happened to be near where the Meet and Greet with Mickey and Minnie was that had no line due to the parade. We waited approximately 3 minutes, without FastPasses!

Glad we got a family pic before the rain.

Safari ride

Crazy Kaylie


This giraffe would not move. We were stuck for about 5 minutes.

A bunch of the other giraffes came over to see what was going on.

The baby came too!

Brynlee really liked this ride and loved seeing the animals.

Such a great view of the lions. Glad we went on this ride first!

Kaylie kept wandering off to look at stuff.

Brynlee was unimpressed with the lines.

Unless, she got to walk!

The girls were very excited about the mountain, but were too small to go on the coaster.

This was before she started crying and saying "Pass" over and over again (pacifier)

She didn't make it until lunch.

Perfect meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie!

Brynlee wouldn't give hugs or high-fives.
