Sorry for the delay posting photos!  We had an amazing vacation and are finally home and rested but back to our vacation stories!

We left St. Petersburg and drove to Disney World.  It was a nice drive and before long we arrived at our hotel.  We decided to stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Kaidani Village this trip.  We were even able to book a savanna view room!  The hotel was amazing and a destination within itself.  There was so much to do and we only had time to experience a little bit of all they had to offer.  It gives us something to look forward to again if we visit in the future.  After we checked in we headed over to the Animal Kingdom park.  It was a hot, humid day but it was fun to experience the magic of Disney.  We caught a quick lunch and started to explore.  The kids loved seeing the gorillas and all of the exotic animals.  We rode the train to Rafiki's Planet Watch.  I think Jacob could have spent the entire day there checking everything out.  He loved learning about insects, animals, their foods and habits.  We saw Rafiki and the kids had their photo taken with her.  Next we went outside and saw the petting zoo.  The kids got to brush goats and other domesticated animals.  Before we left Pocahontas was there and Chloe couldn't wait to have her photo taken with her.  She felt she was , "So Beautiful!"  After we got back to the main part of the park we split up.  The boys went to ride Expedition Everest and the girls went to explore other parts of the park.  We stopped for ice cream which was so refreshing!  Before we left we explored Dinoland and had dinner.  We were exhausted by the time we went back to the resort.  It was quite the welcoming oasis!  Our room was by far one of the nicest we have stayed in during our travels.  The best part-watching the animals on the savanna from our balcony 24 hours a day!!!!!
