Disney World - Day 4 Animal Kingdom

I LOVE Animal Kingdom. It's a zoo, but pumped up with Disney style.

What do ya know? Pooh and Piglet are at Animal Kingdom too!

This is Eeyore pulling his ears out and Ella copying him by pulling her hair out. So cute!

Our favorite ride used to be this ride called Dinosaur. It's not a rollercoaster, but I can't even describe how intense it is. And they bumped up the intensity level since the last time we were there. BUT our new favorite ride is called Exhibition Everest. It's a rollercoaster that goes in and out of Mt. Everest. Anyone who has ridden this can attest to the fact that it is AWESOME!
This is a picture of the ride from a distance. It's huge. My husband took so many awesome pictures this week.

Another ride that is awesome is the Kilimanjaro Safari. You ride in these oversized Jeeps around the grounds like a real safari. We knew Ella would love this ride, but unfortunately we got to it right at Ella's nap time.
She fell asleep with Aunt Ashley.

This is for all you Longhorn fans out there.

This looks like an upside down tree.

Grandad and Ella had a blast playing the drums!

Ella's favorite part of the day again was riding the tram.

Back at the condo playing with our crayons.

Animal Kingdom park closes at 5:00, so it was an early day for all of us, which was a much needed break for our feet. Heath's sisters had to leave that evening for the airport, so we ran over to Hollywood Studios so they could ride the two rides there that are the best, Tower of Terror (which they rode on Sat. night) and Aerosmith's Rockin' Rollercoaster. After they rode those, we SADLY had to say goodbye to them and my dad took them to the airport. We had so much fun with them. Even though they couldn't stay the whole week, the 4 days we were together were amazing! Heath and I loved being able to show them our favorite things about Disney!

Sounds like another great day at Disney! Remember Animal Kingdom is NAHTAZU! ;)
Expedition Everest is my favorite ride in all of Disney World. It makes me so sick to my stomach, but I turn right around and get back on it. Dinosaur....I won't even try that one.
I hope Ella got a chance to see Festival of the Lion King...it's a wonderful show!~
Looking foreward to the next installment....:)
