anniversary trip day six: animal kingdom

Kilimanjaro Safari is one of our fave rides at Animal Kingdom so we try to do it several times on every trip for the best chance of seeing a variety of animals being active.  This was the first time we ever saw the hippos out of the water!

We had fun stopping at all of the PhotoPass photographers since we never remember to get pictures of the two of us when we're with all the kids.

We easily watched the gibbons play for half an hour before moving on (or back...) to the Safari.

satu'li canteen
We ordered lunch from Satu'li Canteen and tried out the new Mobile Ordering feature and it worked out fabulously!  We put the order in via the app, scoped out a table and then just had to pick up the food once it was ready-- no lines, no headache!  Lunch at Satu'li Canteen: Chicken Bowl with Red and Sweet Potato Hash and Charred Onion Chimichurri, Steak Bowl with Red and Sweet Potato Hash and Charred Onion Chimichurri (with no Boba Balls), Hawkes' Grog Ale and Dreamwalker Sangria, and a Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse.  This lunch was one of my favorite meals of the trip!!

flight of passage
We finally got to ride Flight of Passage on this trip and it did not disappoint.  It was, quite literally, the best ride I've ever been on so I was happy that we were able to go on more than once!

fireworks from the room
We wrapped up the night by watching Holiday Wishes from our balcony-- I love having rooms with a fireworks view!!
