Animal Kingdom/Hollywood Studios (take two)

We started out the day with Rob, Sarah and Della at Animal Kingdom. We saw the Lion King show and then went on the Kilimonjar Safari!

After that, we headed back to the condo and all took naps and then went to Hollywood Studios for the afternoon. We took Keenan to the "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" play area (which he loved and didn't want to leave) and then met up with Mom, Jeff, Isaac and Jeff's mom, Grandma Eberts and went to the Lights, Motors, Action stunt show (Keenan and Isaac especially liked it). After that we did the "Back Lot tour" where you go behind the scenes and learn all about movie making and see a ton of cool stuff. By that time it was closing time so we left the park, stopped for pizza for dinner and then headed home... A fun day was had by all!

There are a few pictures from the beginning of the day that I couldn't get to load - I'll add them tomorrow...

"When this girl's sleepy she can nap anywhere." Did you mean Moriah or you??? =) Love the root slide with Waldo, I mean Philip, peeking out at the top. Looks like you are having a great time everybody...

I can still remember going to see the movie HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS when I was like 12 or something. I thought it was the coolest movie ever! I watched it when I was about 18 again -- not quite as cool. I heard about that playground and thought that would be SOOOO awesome. If I were Keenan, I wouldn't want to leave either! WOW!
