Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios

Animal Kingdom

Day number 3 we were off to the Animal Kingdom! While, it was pretty interesting I will say it wasn't my favorite :) Maybe it had something to do with the fact that Drew had her ultimate meltdown here-lol-Momma had to put on her happy face :-)!! The first thing we went to was the Bug's Life 3D interactive show which is inside the tree of life (ya know from Lion King). And it was VERY realistic... almost too much so for Drew haha! she freaked out! It felt and smelled like a stink bug sprayed us, we could feel termites crawling under our booties on the bench and then at one point it felt like bugs were flying into our faces! Honestly, it was pretty cool but maybe a little much for Drew and Bennett?!

Next we headed over to DinoLand.... I wasn't very impressed with the goings on here... kinda state fair-ish... very unlike disney?? We didn't stay long, but of course drew loved it here...go figure!

Lunch was at Rainforest Cafe... which is a reason in itself to head over to Animal Kingdom. So neat!!
Take notice of Drew's face here... somewhat of the psycho kid face, yeah she pretty much lost it here... I was ready to feed her to the tiger to the left of our table!

The last adventure we had in the Animal Kingdom was the safari. Drew absolutely loved this! Which, I guess it kinda depends on the animals as to how well it goes, but luckily they were in a good mood for us! Poor little bennettboo was sacked out through this ride and he would have loved it. Drew was really concerned about the poachers our guide warned us about... they were "after a baby elephant"... she asked me about it the rest of the day :)

Look at her face... she was super impressed with something!

Hollywood Studios

We ended the day at Hollywood Studios! This is one of my favorites.... I kinda wish Brandan and I could've done some things here on our own... Tower of Terror , Indiana Jones etc... BUT the BEST Toy Story Ride is here in the Pixar section of the park and we had a blast doing that with the kids!

We were lucky and just as we walked in we were able to catch a Disney Junior show! We didn't even have to wait in line! Bennett and Drew loved it!

Amy and Kevin were so nice and watched Bennett and Drew while we rode the Rockin' Roller Coaster! Such a fun roller coaster... it's Aerosmith themed!
When we got off we met them in the gift shop and Drew was decked out in true rocker fashion!

Whew... our Disney trip is coming to an end. For the last day we headed back to the Magic Kingdom to meet some of the characters we hadn't said hi to yet!
