WDW In Pictures - Day Three - Part One

This day started like the one before it.  A trip to Ashley's bank off property and then moving onto our park of the day... Animal Kingdom.  I find this park is one to enjoy slowly otherwise you might not enjoy it at all and appreciate all of the little things.  This is a "little things" park.  

Ashley and I were really hungry by the time we got into the park and decided we should eat something since it was basically lunch time.  We hit up my favorite counter service in the park in Dinoland U.S.A.

Ashley's favorite show is Festival of the Lion King so we made sure we made it to a showing of that.  I was really focused on I could get the best possible shots with my new and challenging camera.  I learned a lot about photographing this show.  It's really hard but it pays off when you get some of your favorite shots of your vacation.  The one below with the mother and child is probably my absolute favorite ever.  Something sweet about it to me to watch them interact throughout the show.

A quick meet and greet with one of my favorite Disney women of all time was in order.

For some reason, I don't remember why, but we skipped Kilimanjaro Safari.  I think Ashley wasn't a big fan of it or something.  It was time for Expedition Everest though.  Ashley took my point and shoot and I had my DSLR in hand.

After this ride we decided to leave the park and head to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  Coming up in part two!


  1. GREAT pics!!! Wish I didn't have to wait til November to go back!!

  2. I miss Animal Kingdom. And especially Expedition Everest! I wish they'd fix the Yeti.

  3. Stacy, I HEAR YA regarding how hard it is to photograph Festival of the Lion King. But it's an awesome show. Next time I want to see Nemo.

    Animal Kingdom is definitely a little things park. My hubby and I went in January, and we really enjoyed it. We used to skip it, but not anymore!
