Traveling to WDW from the UK Day 3


By Nine

Today was a 5am start as Tink woke up and declared it was now morning time, yuk! Still it meant that we got to Animal Kingdom nice and early after showers and breakfast in the room.
We headed straight through to Africa to get the Fast Pass for the Safari, for 950-1050. We quickly got some coffees and headed off to do the Pangani Forest Trail. This was great and DD really enjoyed seeing all the animals, especially the gorillas. After this it was time to head back to the Safari and with the Fast Pass we were on the ride in no time. This was FAB. All the advice to get on this nice and early is true, we saw so many animals up close – giraffes, elephants, lions, hippos, monkeys, antelope and lots more. Tink loved it.
After this we hot-footed it straight to Camp Minnie-Mickey. We saw a fairly short line for Chip and Dale which was perfect as madam had been on about meeting them all morning. Again she was good as gold while waiting and it was just magical to watch her with them. She kissed and cuddled them, showed them her Mickey bag and got their autographs all while I had a few tears.
Pocahontas had just left so we headed off to our fave meal in Animal Kingdom, Pizzafari which was just up from Camp M-M. DH and I got pizzas and salads with coke hoping DD would share but she didnt want anything and suddenly announced she needed to go to bed. Now not everyone will agree with our parenting style but DD doesnt sleep in her buggy, and we didnt want her screaming as she was so tired, so we ate up fast and left AK ASAP.
She was straight to sleep at the hotel and after a nice nap/rest for us we decided to head off to The Mall at Millenia. It was about a 20 min drive from Lake Buena Vista and very impressive. We got our first Pumpkin Spice fraps from Starbucks using a gift card Id got in the UK which was great and they were really yummy!
We had a good look around and Tink enjoyed playing in Pottery Barn Kids which was all done up with Fall and Halloween decs. I got a really nice sweater in American Eagle and some cards in Hallmark. DH got some CDs then we headed back to LBV for dinner. We decided just to pop into Crossroads and went to Taco Bell as this is DHs fave fast food. I enjoyed my veg fajita, DH loved his taco pizza but DD was not too impressed with her cheese roll up but ate it in the end with the persuasion of the free toy.

Tiredness then kicked in and we had our first public total meltdown so we quickly took her back to the hotel. We intended to let her have a little play in the park but it was shut! We checked out the kids zone in the pool and she was quickly soaked and cold, a nice warm bath and early night soon sorted her out, along with some TV and milk.
Tomorrow is the big one … Magic Kingdom!
