It was a hot, sticky, and grumpy morning. We did go on the Kilmanjaro Safari which I read was a must-do. We got a fast pass for this and walked around a little before getting on. HUGE mistake! Next time we go with small kids (well... not sure if and when there will be a next time, but those out there who go with small kids...) avoid walking trails! My kids stayed up late the night before and they just don't do as well when they are not following their usual sleep routine. Plus, it was hot and sticky and who wants to walk when it is hot and sticky? Therefore, my kids were not super impressed or interested in any of the animals. Well, that is not true. My second child really liked watching this turtle eat a leaf. We pretty much ate lunch after the safari and trail walk and went back for naps and swimming. I just nixed everything else on my agenda (which included the Festival of the Lion King) In retrospect, maybe we should have done it because it is indoors and air conditioned! Next time, I'd hit this park first before any of the other parks.
Rides/attractions we would go on if I had planned better would include:
- Festival of the Lion King (as mentioned above)
- TriceraTop Spin
- Sing/Dance with Pocohontas at Camp Minnie-Mickey Greeting Trail
- Finding Nemo - The Musical
Then maybe adult only rides with the baby swap... or when the kids are older:
