Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios

Magic Kingdom might be our favorite park at Disney World, but there are so many things we love about Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios!

Animal Kingdom

We got to see lots of animals on our early morning safari ride. Andrew had recently asked for me to take him to the zoo, so he really enjoyed it!
Aunt Jackie and Jonathan are such sweet buddies! They always have so much fun together!
We absolutely LOVE Expedition Everest! I was so excited to actually get this photo!
So awesome ~ I love their faces!! (Joe's brother in law and his daughter are sitting right in front of Joe and Lauren.)


Our extended family spent quite a bit of time at Epcot, as it's one of their favorite parks. We love the rides and shows in the other parks a lot more, but we enjoyed riding Soarin' (several times!) and Spaceship Earth. The boys also had fun riding Test Track and Mission: SPACE (the "light" version for Joe ~ ha ha!), while others of us enjoyed "The Seas with Nemo & Friends", along with "Turtle Talk with Crush". We even caught a glimpse of the fireworks!
I love to visit Epcot at night ~ the fountains are so beautiful! The full moon was a bonus!

Hollywood Studios

We spent more time at Hollywood Studios on this trip than we ever have, as Lauren and Jonathan now love The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller coaster as much as we do!! Our family favorite is Toy Story Midway Mania! ~ we have SO much fun on that ride!!
This cute little guy was so sweet, even when he had to wait between rides. I love how he makes us laugh!
I'm SO glad my friend, Stephanie, told me about "Fantasmic" ~ we enjoyed it so much we saw it twice!

On our last night of vacation, we saw "Fantasmic" before heading to Magic Kingdom to see the parade, castle show, and fireworks just one more time. As we were leaving the park just before midnight, Andrew was asleep on my shoulder and Lauren had tears in her eyes ~ she just didn't want the night to end. 
I felt so blessed ~ we have made such wonderful memories at Disney!
