Day 5 - Disney's Animal Kingdom

On our last day we visited Disney's Animal Kingdom. It's always so much fun to go on the Safari ride and we really lucked out this time. The kids and I were waiting for Brendan to go run and get fast passes for the Kali River Rapids and Aidan started talking to a girl who was working security. We chatted for a while and told her that Brendan was on R&R and she surprised us by letting us right through to the front when he met us! It was so nice!! After we went on the Safari ride we walked through the zoo portion of the park that is a long walk through the woods - it was awesome!! We grabbed a quick lunch at Yak and Yeti Restaurant in the Asia section of the park. Again - the food was incredible!! By this point I am getting positively chubby from eating delicious 3 course meals twice a day!!! After lunch, Brendan and Aidan went on Expedition Everest - the roller coaster! I took the girls to the dinosaur playground and the boys met us there after the coaster. Brendan took Aidan and Emmy on the Kali River Rapids ride after that and Emmy was so brave and everyone got soaked! Aoife and I waited on a bridge over the end of the ride and watched them come down the river! So much fun!!

Here we are!!
