We were up late today and after a short walk around Disney Springs we headed over to Animal Kingdom. This, I think, was my favourite park of the trip, I love how they are now open in the night. We first went to watch the Finding Nemo Show which was really good with some catchy tunes. It was cleverly done and reminded me of the Lion King on stage with how they made the animals move.
Flight of Passage was next up with a fast pass. This was hands down the best ride I have ever been on. It was amazing, the whole experience. When you sit down and the ride starts you can feel your legs moving and it actually feels like the banshee is breathing. It was so good, just a pity the queue is around 4 hours.
We then walked through the Gorilla Falls and collected some more badges for our Wilderness Explorer book. They recently had tigers born and we could see them on the webcam. So cute! We then went on the safari during the night. A must as it is completely different than the day. We waited for the second showing of Rivers of Light and rode Everest as many times as we could! I think we managed three rides!
Food and Drinks
- Coca Cola Store we went upstairs into their bar and tried Coke’s from around the world. We bought a sample of 16 small drinks, some were really tasty others…. we’ll never again.
- Sanna for lunch in Animal Kingdom Lodge, it was amazing and we would come here again. The bread service was out of this world, you have to go for the option with all the dips (Traditional Naan, Garlic-Ginger Naan, Spiced naan, Onion Kucha and Paneer Paratha with the following dips roasted red pepper hummus, mango chutney, tomato-date jam, tamarind chutney, coriander chutney, garlic pickle, red chile sambai, spicy jalapeno lime pickle). These were all so good and you could mix and match to create your own flavours. For main course Mike had Seasonal Fish salad and a letite crème to finish. I had goan fish curry and chickpea with followed by chocolate mousse. Highly recommend it here, especially as you have a view of the Savanna.
- Satu’il Canteen for dinner where again we made our own bowls choosing our meat, base and sauce. This is our second time eating here and is still a favourite.
- Pongu Pongu which we saw photos of everywhere before going. Its a super sweet ice drink with small balls that are filled with juice. It was tasty but enough to share, especially if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth.
Dining Plan Value: Today we spent $112.55 and all together $909.59.
