We had a terrific time yesterday!
A friend of DH from work who also happens to work at Disney had tix that were about to expire, so she invited us to come into the park for the day. We met at Animal Kingdom, and consequently got to spend the morning there.
I was really excited because I hadn't spent any meaningful time in AK forever, and I had NEVER been back to Asia (I know, shocking.) The first thing we did was the Kilimanjaro Safari. We saw a ton of animals, which was so cool for the kids. And our driver was as entertaining as ever, getting into the story.
Next, we headed over to Asia, while I kept a running commentary about all the eating places from the advice y'all have offered! "So and so says Yak n Yeti is awesome!" and "Thus and such says we should really try Flametree." It was pretty funny. And man, Asia smelled GOOD! We were trying to save our appetite for lunch, and it was hard.
While in Asia, I minded the baby while DH and DD rode Expedition Everest. They LOVED it! And the wait was pretty short, as was the wait for the Safari.
We headed to Earl of Sandwich for lunch, where we got to try the limited time French dip. Yum! The wait was pretty long since we timed our lunch poorly - right at 12:45 - but I'm always amazed at how fast the line moves, and how you can always find a table.
We headed to Epcot next, where the light crowds continued, and so did the firsts. DH and DD got to ride Mission Space (opting for green for the first experience), and we got Fastpasses to return for Soarin (the stand by line was only 55 mins!) We spent the rest of the day walking around WS, doing some of the attractions over there, sampling from the French patisserie (HIGHLY recommend the chocolate eclair ), before we headed to La Cava del Tequila for a night cap. (Cucumber Margarita. SO good.)
OH - and I FINALLY ducked into Club Cool and tried Beverly!! I liked it, actually It tastes like what I imagine Campari and grapefruit would be like. No complaints here My two year old like all the others ha!
So overall, a nice day. Very chilly and breezy toward the end, but we enjoyed the crisp weather and the light crowds.
