In the Animal Kingdom park ~ December 31, 2008


To be honest, if we didn't have park hopper passes, we probably would have skipped the Animal Kingdom park. It closes much earlier than the other parks, and we had only read about one ride that we really wanted to ride there (Expedition Everest).

However, since we did have park hopper passes, and we were warned that New Years Eve was one of the most crowded days of the year to be at Disney World, we decided to go check it out. We were really pleasantly suprised and glad that we went!!! The crowds were reasonably light, the lines were fairly short, and it was just a nice, fun and relaxing day...


Julianna, Johnny and Daddy rode the Expedition Everest roller coaster twice.
It's very cool — it even goes backwards for part of the ride...


Flights of Wonder was a very colorful bird show...


The Kilimanjaro Safaris ride let us
get up close to the very wild wildlife...


Dino Rama was a fun amusement park
inside of the Animal Kingdom...
