Our plan was to be up and out of the room early today, but we got a late start! We got to the bus stop at 9:20 a.m. and ended up not getting to Animal Kingdom until 10:20. There were 4 scooters waiting to get on! So we missed our Safari FastPass+.
We did make it to our second FastPass+, Dinosaur! This is my favorite ride in AK.
I think Kaylee is screaming in Alex’s ear here…hahahahaha.
Donald’s Dino-Bash was happening while we were there. The whole land is transformed into a celebration. There are special character spots with Launchpad McQuack and others!
Kinsey had her very first meet and greet ever with Pocahontas! She spent several minutes with her. It was very special! These are all PhotoPass pictures.
We stopped to enjoy It’s Tough to be a Bug on the way over to Pandora. This can be scary for little kids believe it or not. At one point it gets pitch black while spiders descend from the ceiling and smoke blows into the room!
From there we headed over to Pandora for our Flights of Passage FastPass+. Sadly I don’t ride this because of my motion sick issues.
I spent some time watching this man in the utility suit while I waited.
This is one of my favorite backdrops for pictures! It’s become a tradition now so I take pictures of my daughters here each time.
Lunch was of course at my favorite Satul’i Canteen.
Cheeseburger Steamed Pod (Kid’s Meal)–Steamed Cheeseburger Pod stuffed with Ground Beef, Ketchup, Mustard, Pickle and Cheddar Cheese served with Vegetable Chips and Grapes. It also comes with a drink (not pictured).
We cut this and shared it amongst everyone. It’s very good! It’s a nice little appetizer.
Chopped Wood Grilled Chicken Bowl–Choice of base (I did rice!), wood grilled chicken, vegetable slaw, with your choice of sauce.
This is my go to and one of my favorite quick service meals in all of Disney! I say this in every trip report, but it’s a nice change from the regular offerings.
I always get all 3 sauces and mix them together in my bowl!
Chili Garlic Shrimp Bowl–Shrimp tossed in chili garlic sauce with noodles and vegetable slaw
This is a little bit spicy! Spicier than anyone was anticipating. But still good!
Slow Roasted Sliced Grilled Beef Bowl–Slow roasted marinated beef with choice of base and vegetable slaw with bobos.

This was my first time watching UP! A Great Bird Adventure Show since it changed from Flights of Wonder. I reallllly loved the Flights of Wonder show. I think it was an often forgot about experience in Animal Kingdom.
The new show was okay. It wasn’t my favorite though! Some of the elements were the same as the old show. And some were new. I encourage you to check it out at least once!
