We’ve been meaning to get out to Disney before it gets to hot outside & crowded with spring breakers, so this week we spent a day at Animal Kingdom in the morning, and Magic Kingdom in the evening. It was a fun time!
Our first stop was Kilimanjaro Safari, which I realized when we got there said “expectant mothers should not ride”, so my mom kept me company back at Starbucks 🙂 Then we checked out the “affection section” or petting zoo. The kids liked it fine, but really the train ride to it was the best part, and there wasn’t anything spectacular about the train ride… No stroller = lots of carries.
Tall enough to ride! Not tall enough to ride. Can you spot Kaden? He & Landon are in about the 7th row back (white t-shirt on K, black on L), right in front of my mom, dad, & Davis. He got off and said he hated it (too scary! He liked everything else he rode though.)
Main Street U.S.A.Got a stroller this time.The boys were off to find adventure (in Adventureland, of course!) They rode Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, & watched the Country Bears (my dad’s favorite.)Mom, Alia, & I were off to ride the Little Mermaid, & find a treat 🙂Lafou’s Brew – Alia asked me the next day “sometime can I have some of that tasty drink again?”Tea cups – we didn’t spin ours, so no one got sick 😉Looking for that little mouse.We watched fireworks from Fantasyland, which is a pretty fun spot! Not crowded, & you’re surrounded by the fireworks. Kaden enjoyed them, and Alia didn’t cry for the first time!Afterwards there was a 5 minute line to meet Anna & Elsa, so we finally did that! Not long ago it was never short of an hour, sometimes up to 4 or 5 hours to meet them (crazy, right?!)
Alia had a very nice visit and talked about all kinds of random things (her dress, the chocolate coins she got from her friend’s birthday party, the fact that she’s never seen snow…)Then we were off to ride the carousel. Kaden was off with daddy & papa again to ride Pirates of the Caribbean for the first time (immediately followed by a second.) We met back up to watch the electrical parade before we went home.It was such a fun day! But seriously it’s taken me several days to recover – so much walking! I might wait on another theme park day until after this baby is born (& a little while more after that…)
