Disney World (2/3): Animal Kingdom

Wednesday: Animal Kingdom

We slept in pretty late since Jon suddenly (and randomly) got really sick and was up all night. After taking it easy, we headed out for another rainy day adventure. Luckily in Florida, even when it rains it's still warm. In fact, it's almost just as warm at night as it is during the day. I blame the humidity, but I'm also not complaining.

My breakfast. Werther's caramel chewy bar leftovers from Karamell-K├╝che, located in the Germany pavilion at Epcot.

Dinosaur was pretty much the exact same layout as Indiana Jones in Disneyland, but fun nonetheless. I love that Bill Nye (the science guy!) talks to you overhead while you wait in line.

So many awesome animals and plants on the Kilimanjaro Safari. This tree can live up to 9 months without water, so cool!

After the Safari ride we grabbed some lunch at seemingly the only place with vegetarian options, Rainforest Cafe. What a headache that was and probably definitely my worst experience at a restaurant ever. Let's just say that our waitress didn't speak English very well, argued with us when we tried to order what was clearly written ON the menu, didn't know or understand what a vegetarian was (come on, it's 2011), couldn't comprehend our simple order after 10 minutes of explaining and then proceeded to completely mess up our order. Something I hope to never relive.

Expedition Everest was the last ride we planned on hitting before we left the park. We were next in line when a big storm hit. They shut the ride down, but allowed us to wait for the storm to pass. Since we were covered and next in line, we waited it out; an hour later and we were off! By far the scariest/highest drop roller coaster I've ever been on. I don't do big roller coasters and I don't do drops, but I sucked it up for Jon on this one (and I'm glad I did).

See ya tomorrow!


  1. looks like such a good time. My mom is bugging us to take her to the new Harry Potter World/Land (??) may have to do that soon!
