1: Let the begin!
2: Animal Kingdom Lodge
3: What an amazing spot to stay! With one step out onto our deck, we could see ankole cattle, giraffes, zebras, and all sorts of birds. The kids were mesmerized by the animals, especially the ankole cattle that always had his head tilted like one of his horns was heavier than the other! Night time was the best time to see the animals up close. They would walk right up to our deck! Outside the resort you could walk out into the savanna on the Arusha rock. The kids enjoyed that!
6: Small World
8: Dumbo | Flying with
9: The only place where everything stops for a parade!
10: Mountain | One of our favorites -- the kids just couldn't get enough of it! This ride tells the story of Brer Rabbit. Great attention is paid to the sets inside the mountain. The sets and the music held the kids' attention. They laughed and laughed at Brer Rabbit and his adventures. Because we were there in November, the water works were turned down; however, our last day was warmer and it was truly a Splash Mountain! The kids no longer wanted to ride Splash Mountain all the time!
11: Mountain | Another favorite! The kids, especially Collin loved this ride! It was their very first roller coaster. After riding it one time, they got off begging to ride it again and again. And I think we did! It was a fun run-away train ride through the mountain - you even caught a glimpse of dinosaur bones stuck in the mountainside! Collin talks about Thunder Mountain all the time - even says our rides in the van are like Thunder Mountain :o)
12: Tea Party | It' can be a wild and dizzy ride -- so be careful who you ride with.! Mommy made the mistake of saying, "Let's all ride together." Daddy got a big laugh out of spinning it as fast as possible!!! Everything was a blur and our tummies were flippety-flop!
13: Uncle Tom's
14: Fair | Mickey's | The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm | Come fly in Goofy's homemade airplane as it swoops, twists, and turns. Then at full-speed crash through a barn full of chickens! While in Toon Town drop in at Mickey and Minnie's Country Houses. Sit and play awhile in Minnie's house but be careful not to set off the alarm in Mickey's house. Daddy set off it off when he tried to watch Mickey's television.!
15: Mickey & Minnie's Country Houses
16: Tomorrowland Indy Speedway | Driving the Indy cars was a lot of fun! We let the kids sit in the drivers' seats. Mommy and Daddy did the gas pushing but they did the all steering! Thank goodness we have several years before they sit in the driver's seat of real cars!
17: Space Ranger Spin | Buzz Lightyear's | Zurg is attempting to steal batteries from helpless toys to power a weapon of ultimate destruction. Buzz needs our help to thwart the Evil Emperor's dastardly plans. Can we help Buzz stop Zurg and become Star Command Galactic Heroes?

We let him pick the next ride to cheer him - Kali River Rapids. We warned that we may get wet, but that did stop him. And under the first water fall we went - Collin and Mommy were soakin' wet, especially Collin! Needless to say that ride didn't cheer him. Poor Collin - He walked around for the next hour with his arms hanging way out trying to dry. Kali River Rapids
39: Dinosaur Blast back in time to save the last dinosaur on this always thrilling, sometimes frightening, journey through the past ... and the dark. Collin loved this ride and rode it several times.
