On our first day as a married couple:
we went to my favorite park: Animal Kingdom!
This park is absolutely amazing! It just so happens to be the largest animal theme park in the world. Home to more than 1,700 animals across 250 species. Disney claims that the park reflects Walt Disney’s dedication to conservation and is committed to animal care, education and research… I think it reflects his dedication to leave you amazed, and it does.
There aren’t just animals at this park! We enjoyed some amazing shows! We started the day off with seeing Finding Nemo the Musical. We watched Travis’ favorite: Festival of the Lion King, and enjoyed sharing it with Christine and Kevin’s family for the first time.
Animal Kingdom is also the home to one of my all-time-favorite rides ever: Dinosaur. It is pretty self-explanatory, really… I’m a nerd. We also rode Expedition Everest (My mom basically flipped out, and panicked. It was her first big coaster, and I just don’t think she was prepared for it. Eventually, she calmed down and we all had a nice laugh.) We went on the Kilimanjaro Safari tour and saw the Disney-Style 4d Its Tough to be a Bug!
After Animal Kingdom, we made our way on over to the Magic Kingdom park to watch the Electrical Parade, and then catch the showing of Wishes! We were lucky and they were doing Celebrate the Magic before Wishes!
