So yesterday was my last day in FL and because I had about 4 hours to play with before I had to leave for the airport, I decided to get as much done at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, the last Disney park at Walt Disney World that I had yet to visit properly. I’m so glad I found the time because I had a blast! There are a lot of fun rides at Animal Kingdom but there are actual animals as well. So fun!!
I figured I’d see a couple of shows, ride a ride and be done but man, I managed to get a lot of things done. I got to see both the Festival of the Lion King live show and Finding Nemo: The Musical. Disney does these kinds of productions very well so I enjoyed them both. Then I made my way to the rides. Expedition Everest was prolly my fave ride of the day … possibly of my entire time at Disney World. I didn’t know what to expect and there’s a surprise if you’re not familiar with the ride. I loved it so much that I rode it 4 times … the park was kind of empty and I managed to get on the ride over and over again. I was really impressed with the detail in the ride … of the whole park actually. The time-traveling Dinosaur ride was fun, too. There is a safari ride where you are driven in a jeep onto the park grounds … right up to see real life giraffes, hippos, zebras, lions … I was amazed! I wish I had a whole day to explore and do everything but I think I got a really great taste of all the offerings at Animal Kingdom. I’ll deffo be back.
My flight home from Florida was long … as long as it took me to run my marathon on Sunday … just about 5 hours. Funny, the flight seemed longer :) I was able to chat with friends while in flight so that made the time seem not so bad.
I am home again in LA, trying to get back into the swing of things. Emma and Josh are staying with me for a few days while Josh recuperates from a nasty collar bone breakage. Since they live at the beach and need to be closer to doctors here in LA, they’re staying with me … which is fun! It’s nice to be home … I’m glad the temps are finally warming up.
Happy Hump Day, y’all!!
