30 Days of Gratitude - DisneyWorld (12-13/30)


30 Days of Gratitude - Days 12 & 13

Today we're doubly grateful for our trip to DisneyWorld in July 2014!  We took the girls to Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach water park, Downtown Disney, and the Ohana breakfast at the Polynesian resort, and we had a blast.

We’ve been to the other 3 main parks at DisneyWorld before, so we wanted to visit the Animal Kingdom for the first time, and we were surprised by how much we loved it.  The park has so many trees and feels much calmer than the other Disney theme parks.

The girls were thrilled, of course, to meet their favorite Disney characters like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto, and they ran up to give them hugs and kisses. We saw the Finding Nemo musical and were all in awe… the actors do an amazing job of working their huge puppets while simultaneously singing and moving around the stage.  We’d never seen anything like it; it was really incredible.

And the Animal Kingdom safari ride was awesome!  We got to ride through animals as they wandered free in their habitats, and all of us loved it.  The highlight of the ride was when a giraffe ran across the road in front of us and we felt so up close and personal with it… it was a special moment.

Our day at Animal Kingdom was wonderful, and our whole DisneyWorld vacation was magical, and today we’re thankful for those happy memories with our girls!
