Walt Disney World Trip Report Day 2: Part 2
(Click here to start at the beginning)
After lunch at Mara, we hopped on a bus to Animal Kingdom. We saw the cutest photo opportunity before we went in, so we stopped to take a photo to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Lion King.
We headed straight for Pandora to take a quick tour of the new land. It was so pretty and detailed. It was easy to forget you were in Animal Kingdom.
After our tour of Pandora, we headed to Africa and watched the Harambi dancers before going to our FastPass+ for Kilimanjaro Safaris.
The lions were out in full force...they were sleeping but they were out in front. It's crazy how they sleep just like domestic cats, all floppy over the edges of the highest ledge they can find.
After a really good safari, we went to our early Rivers of Light Dining Package at Tusker House to spend time with Mickey and Friends in their safari gear. The food was delicious...and pretty similar to how we eat at home.
After dinner, we went to see A Bug's Life, which is a really fun show and then we made our way to Pandora to see some entertainers, ride Flight of Passage and get a Night Blossom.
We got our Night Blossom from Pongu Pongu and made the long trek to the Rivers of Light seating area all the way across the park near Expedition Everest!
Rivers of Light was very pretty, but is definitely not my favorite night time show. I would probably choose to stay in Pandora or go see a late showing of the Finding Nemo musical instead of waiting for the show.
After Rivers of Light, we rode Expedition Everest...which was the first time I saw it after dark and it was beautiful! I loved riding it at night!
By this time, we were beat. We could not even fathom doing another thing, so we made our way back to Coronado Springs
