Disneyworld: Day Five

Our final day at Disney was spent at Animal Kingdom. Jack taught Amelia about a fun game, Subway Surfer, so we let them play on the way to the park. Can you say addicted?!
The little boys were perfectly content to eat a fruit plate! I love that we got some good cousin time during this week!
The tree of life is the first thing that you see when you get into Animal Kingdom. The park is smaller (or at least it feels smaller) and we walked in and instantly fell in love with this park!
The first ride that we went on was Dinosaur. It was a jeep ride through Dinosaur land--it was loud, it was bumpy and it was right up Barrett's alley.
You can tell that we were all pretty nervous around the loud dinosaurs...Barrett is in awe!
We headed from Dinosaur to the Rapids, which we LOVED. It was so hot and it got us pretty wet so it was a pleasant ride. Our next fast pass was for Everest. I went with Amelia, Barrett was too small, and then we did a rider swap and she went again with Jason. Her favorite ride, hands down!
She was able to get the front row...again. Hands up, smile on her face and she was in heaven!!
We skipped lunch because we wanted to jump on the safari. We heard some great stories and it was about to rain so the animals were all sorts of crazy.
We finished out Animal Kingdom with a quick lunch and we headed back to our hotel around 2pm for our daily rest time.
This was our last day so I spent this time packing up our bags. The Magical Express was scheduled to pick us up on Friday morning at 2am so I wanted to get everything done before the early morning!
For dinner, we headed back to Magic Kingdom to have dinner at the Crystal Palace with Winnie the Pooh characters.
Dinner wasn't great and the characters were a step down from the others but the kids loved getting to get their own food from the buffet and they enjoyed seeing the characters.
We had to take a few more pictures in front of the castle...I love seeing these sweet smiles. 
We finished out the night with one more roller coaster, the Barnstormer, and then we were in our hotel by 9pm. Barrett fell asleep on the walk back but Amelia was all about pictures! 
Our Disney trip was amazing. There were moments of frustration and exhaustion but overall the trip was so great. The kids loved the rides, the characters and they were such troopers!!   So thankful that we got to do something so fun, especially with our Ohio family!
