Animal Kingdom, my favorite park during my 2004 stay in Orlando. And also my favorite during this stay if Epcot, with which I fell in love during my last visit, wouldn't exist.
First, we purchased our park hopper passes on beforehand.
We also bought our Universal/Busch/Seaworld passes on beforehand. We had to exchange the voucher in real passes at guest relations. At Universal it took us more than an hour to get our passes. At Disney, it took us ..... I didn't time it, but it must have been less than 2 minutes. Amazing how smooth and fast we were settled.
Secondly, I love the zoo/themepark combi as said earlier and AK is just like the perfect park to me.
The park is simply amazingly beautiful
Look at this. I would live here, forever.
I was blown away by Dinosaur the ride back in 2004, not so this time. I guess I was spoiled by other more amazing rides in the last few years
This was still under contraction during my previous visit. To be honest, I didn't really like the ride. Going backwards isn't really my kind of ride I guess.
It should be one of the seven wonders of the world
The Himalaya theming is great though
F*ck you bloody tourists
Where's the elektro music ?
Taking the train to the other part of the park.
Love this game
Oh, be quiet, surgery going on
Waiting for the train
Probably my favorite attraction in Orlando
Words cannot describe how much I love this ride.
What can I say, it's just stunning
I don't know how the views from the AK lodge are, but if they are similar to these, I WILL stay at the lodge the next time I visit Orlando
Yeah baby !!!!!!
Once again, I love this park because of it's beauty
Because the parks closes early, we combined it with a visit to Disney Downtown
For a visit to Disney Quest which was included in our hopper passes
While DQ is a bit aging, we had a fun couple of hours
It was a while ago since I was able to play this arcade game
EB is full concentration
Getting dressed for the virtual reality experience
I quit after a few minutes. This was feeling so old. They really should get current technology in this place.
It was fun to watch though
The virtual rafting ride also didn't feel quite right but rather outdated.
Mike skipped the raft ride and got a nap outside
We had dinner here. It was ok but we prefer Hard Rock Café.
Planet Hollywood dinner
And Mike was awake again after a visit to the supermarket
