Day 5 in Disney World - Animal Kingdom / Chef Mickey's

Today we spent the day in the Animal Kingdom. We made sure to go and see Finding Nemo the musical and the Lion King show today since we were only planning one day in this park. Both are great! When we rode on Kilaminjaro Safari's a baby giraffe kept following our truck, it was so cute. Jayden insisted on leading the way with his map, he loves looking at maps and studying them. We were able to meet some more characthers for pictures and autographs today. Jayden surprised us by LOVING the Dinosaur ride. It gets really dark at times and dinosaurs jump out at you and roar. We finished our day in Animal Kingdom in the tree of life watching a Bug's Life Show. It's neat to look at all the animals carved into the tree on our way into the show. As soon as we left the park we headed over to the Contemporary for dinner at Chef Mickey's. Juli is finally calming with all the characters. If she really doesn't like them she will refuse to look at them! Her favorites so far are the Princesses, Minnie Mouse and Pluto. Jayden says his favorite so far is Mickey and Goofy. At Chef Mickey's the kids got to see, dance with and get autographs from Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto. Our favorite place to see the star characters but not our favorite place for dinner! Dessert is delicious though! the little mickey things are chocolate moose on an oreo cookie with dark chocolate circles for his ears. After dinner exhaustion was taking over and we headed to the hotel to relax. The kids were sad to see Grandma (my mom) head home but were glad we would get to see her again before we left Florida.
