To say that we had fun at Animal Kingdom would be an understatement! This park was right up Willow’s alley as she loves the outdoors and LOVES animals. We headed to the park in the morning so we could beat the heat.
One of Willow’s favourite parts was meeting Minnie and Mickey in the Safari building. This was her first character meet and greet outside of meeting Ariel briefly, when she absolutely froze, but this time she was much less afraid and ran right up to both of them for big hugs.
Another highlight of the park was touring around the safari area on the safari truck they have. Everyone grabs a seat and you tour around these Savannah-like areas to see the animals up close and personal. Many of them were roaming around while others were lying down, basking in the warm sun.
Back inside one of the main buildings, Willow bravely pet a snake while her dad and I looked on. Her dad is terrified of snakes and I was certain that he’d lose his cool but he was cool, calm and collected and Willow had no problems with the snake.
All in all, we had a wonderful time at the park and we were so happy that we made it a part of our Disney trip.
