Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Day 1

The day after we moved from Disney’s BoardWalk Inn to Animal Kingdom Villas at Jambo House we spent our first of two consecutive days at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  It has become in our top two Parks in Walt Disney World.

Buses From Animal Kingdom Villas at Jambo House to Animal Kingdom

We had heard that while Animal Kingdom Villas were very close to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the buses from one to the other seemed to take forever. Here is the bus situation we encountered on our first day:

This was at around 11:30 am on a Sunday morning.

29 APR 2012 DW 004 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

A lot of people were left behind.

Tusker House Dining With The Disney Characters

Once we arrived we headed straight to Tusker House Restaurant as we had 12:30 pm reservations for lunch with the Disney Characters.

There was a tremendous selection of food available.

 29 APR 2012 DW 030 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

As we went at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue the night before, it was likely a mistake to book this the very next day; we won’t next time.

29 APR 2012 DW 026 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

So we had a light lunch of salad, cheese, some ham and some rice (shown in the above pic’s).

OK, so we made up for it with the wide variety of deserts!

Yea deserts!

Festival of the Lion King

A not to be missed production is the Festival of the Lion King.

29 APR 2012 DW 085 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

The colors and pageantry of this Broadway-like show is truly outstanding.

Yet is is very different from the Broadway show.

29 APR 2012 DW 087 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

You are right in the middle of the action with Pubma, Timone, Simba and many new characters. Do not miss this attraction for sure.

Kilimanjaro Safari

Next we went on a walking tour where we encountered two Gorillas as seen in the picture below. It was very thrilling seeing such majestic animals.

The other not-to-be-missed attraction is Kilimanjaro Safari.

 29 APR 2012 DW 091 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

We saw so many different animals on this tradition of ours.

Just look at all of these pictures showing how close they were to our truck.

29 APR 2012 DW 096 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

We have taking this attraction many times in the past yet not with so many animals.

29 APR 2012 DW 101 Disneys Animal Kingdom   Day 1

I took so many pictures my camera ran out of battery life!

Tomorrow more pictures from the Safari and other attractions we visited on our second day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
