Animal Kingdom

Wednesday is Animal Kingdom day for us. We had 8:30 AM reservations for the Tusker House character breakfast. We met Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Daisy Duck all in their safari outfits. We had another magical moment as the cast member with Daisy Duck was great and was telling us jokes and took our pictures for us. We played along and joked back with him including when he was teasing Daisy for kissing me (he told her he was going to tell Donald and a hysterical encounter happened). Well as Daisy left us to go to the next family the cast member said that for being so sweet he had something for us and gave us a post card that had a picture of the four characters in their safari gear by the Tree of Life!

After breakfast we went around and visited with characters. We saw the following:

Goofy and Pluto (Goofy was dressed as Santa & Pluto had a Christmas collar on)
Donald Duck in Safari Outfit & Holiday tie
Tarzan (now located on trail where Pocahontas was)
King Louie & Balloo with their Christmas scarves

We then had Fast passes to the 12 PM showing of Festival of the Lion King. After the show I went to Rafiki’s Planet Watch where I had pictures taken with Chip and Dale in their Christmas hats & scarves. It was then time to use our fast passes for the Kilimanjaro Safari. We were in the last row for the safari so it was quite bumpy and at one point the driver made a turn a bit too sharp and we ended up having the right back tires coming up off the road so we were really bounced hard!

We ended our day at Animal Kingdom by visiting Mickey and Minnie. The duo was in their Christmas sweaters instead of their safari outfits which was nice.

After Animal Kingdom I decided to head over to EPCOT before going to Hollywood Studios in the evening for the lights.
