{outfit & travel guide} Exploring Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite parks. Sadly we only went for 3/4 of a day on this trip because there were so many other things going on. We had to take our usual Safari and a quick visit to Pandora (we didn't go on the rides because we couldn't get Fast Passes and didn't want to wait in super long lines.)  I also had my friend try Yak & Yeti for lunch since she had never been and I've wanted to go back since my first visit a few years ago.  Before heading out we also did the Jungle Trek in Asia to see the two young tigers who are growing up very quickly!

My zebra print dress by Splendid was the perfect piece for this hot day visiting with the animals. It kept me cool and on theme.

Isle of Java

Before heading on our trip we searched for new foods at the park and came upon the Apple Cider Donut Holes at Isle of Java. I have a slight obsession with apple cider donuts so I HAD to have them. When we got to the kiosk there wasn't a sign for them so I thought they might not be selling them anymore. But we asked to double check and lo and behold they had ONE left, just waiting for us! And they were delicious, totally work $5.

Yak & Yeti

We went for appetizers during lunch instead of larger meals because we weren't super hungry. I got the Pork Pot Stickers and a side of Fried Rice. Soooo delicious!

What To See

Kilimanjaro Safari

The safari is always a must-do at Animal Kingdom. The best times are first thing in the morning or in the evening when it cools down so most of the animals are out. On this particular trip we were able to see the new baby giraffe, Aella, such a cutie.

Jungle Trek

The jungle trek has a lot of animals to see from bats and birds all the way to tigers. Last year two cubs were born and they are growing so fast! We skipped most of the animals to get right to the tigers and watched them playing in the water. I could have stayed for hours but it was super hot.  (see some cute pictures and video of them back in February)

There is a LOT more to see and do at Animal Kingdom.  See another mini guide from May here!
