We are spending the day at the hotel packing and having one last look at the animals. I’ve loved being at this hotel and waking up to animals outside your room. The only thing I didn’t like is how little storage they have in the room!


















We are at Sanaa in Kidani village for our final meal. Mum is having the Pina Collava.



Dad is having the blood orange margarita.



I’m having the butter chicken.



Dads having the braised beef.



Mum is having the chicken tandoori.



This crane came to say hello when we were eating.



I had the triple chocolate mousse.



Dad had the candy bar.



Mum had the Caramel N’dizi.



Goodbye Animal Kingdom Lodge you have been wonderful.

Attraction Tickets Direct


We are here at Epcot this morning primarily to go to Spice Road Table.



Had to get an ice cream sandwich before we leave!



Now time for a mission to mars.



Disney bounding as Lilo today.



We are now eating at Spice Road Table. The best thing about this place is the view!



Dads Moroccan beer.



We all had the mixed grill skewers. It was delicious!



We then had the chocolate pyramid for dessert.



We hopped over to Animal Kingdom now to spend the evening there.



Mum and dad got an ice cream each, me being still quite full from lunch opted for the coke float... I didn’t realise it was just as big!!



Time for a fast pass on Dinosaur.






Time for the Expedition Everest fast pass.



Our final time going on flight of passage! Can’t get over how good this ride is!!



We went on Kilimanjaro Safaris, this was probably the best one we’ve ever done. We got stuck behind a tower of Giraffes who kept crossing the road. Many other animals came out to say hello as well.

























































We are in Nomad lounge next to Pandora for a few drinks.



Mum is having this, mainly cause I want the glowing lotus flower.



Dad is having this drink.



I’m having the Graham Beck Brut Rose sparkling wine.



Since it is May the 4th it would be silly to not go to Hollywood Studios



Arrived just in time to see the first order march.









Now time to go to the launch bay and meet some characters.












Lunch at the ABC commissary, we all opted for the chicken and ribs combo.



In the queue for Star Tours, as you can imagine it is very popular today!






I’m only 5ft but gosh chewy is a giant!



Time for a fast pass for Rock n Roller coaster.






Onto my favourite ride.



Next up another ride on Star Tours.



At the Indiana Jones show. Haven’t seen this show in years!!
























We are now watching the frozen sing along.















We are waiting for Disney Movie Magic and the Star Wars fireworks.















I was a little underwhelmed at the Star Wars fireworks. We saw it 18 months ago and it was my favourite show, there were so many fireworks. Now there’s no fireworks that are actually launched into the sky just the low flying ones.




































We came to Blizzard Beach today. We went on Summit Plummet first. We’ve never been on this before so thought we should do it. You really get flown around a lot!






We then on Slush Gusher and Team Boat Springs. I still prefer Team Boat Springs over the two family raft rides at Typhoon Lagoon.



We then went onto the red slopes for runoff rapids. I enjoy these and find them quite relaxing.









We then went on the downhill double dipper.



Then onto the Toboggan Racers.



Then onto the Snow Stormers.



Having finished all the rides in an hour and a half we decided to get some lunch. I was thrilled when they had steak fries on the menu! Missed the chunky chips.






Then we headed over to the lazy river.



Why is all the water they spray on you freezing!!



Finally we hit the wave pool before heading back to the hotel.



We have come to Fantasia mini golf. This is always great fun as we are so bad!!







































Our outrageous scores 😂



Another day at the Magic Kingdom after having Bomas breakfast which I was so enthused about that I forgot to take a photo!



It is very warm today so not getting sunburnt is my main aim!






First up Philarmagic. This is mums favourite show.



Spot the hidden Mickey.



Now onto Dumbo. A must do on a Disney holiday.












Stopped by the Big Top Souvenirs to have a look at the treats they are making.



Mum is trying the Millennial Marshmallow Milkshake from Tomorrowland.



I’m having a cola slushie to cool down.



Fast pass for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train again!






Pirates of the Caribbean is closed so we could use the fast pass we have for that on Splash Mountain.



We are taking a trip around the park on the railway.



Next up Big Thunder Mountain.



Buzz lightyear ride next.



We mean serious business.



We then headed over to the little mermaid ride as the wait time was so short.






























Off to visit the 999 happy haunts.



Now quite the contrast to Its a Small World.



Mum finally has her name come up on something!



I went to get my photos done with the lanterns whilst mum and dad found a spot for Happily Ever After.






Now time to watch Happily Ever After.







































Now Once Upon a Time









We are starting off with a breakfast at Trattoria al Forno as a character meet and greet with Rapunzel and Flynn. Tangled is my favourite Disney film so this was a must!



Frying pans... who knew!?

The pastries come in a frying pan



The pastries are tangled and little mermaid themed.



These pancakes are huge!!






First time meeting Flynn



Disney bounding as my favourite princess.












Ariel and Eric were here to celebrate too.












Now heading over to Epcot






First stop is Journey into Imagination. Always love seeing Figment.















Time to go on the finding nemo ride and turtle talk with crush which is always so funny.



Now using a fast pass for Soarin



Trying the flower and garden festival exclusive violet lemonade.



Time for another mission to Mars






Got a magic shot with Pascal!






Dad got a pork taco from the Mexico pavilion as a snack on the dining plan.



Riding the grand fiesta now.



Inside now they are showcasing lots of Coco stuff.



Watching the Chinese circle vision.



Now time for Canada circle vision before a dinner at Coral Reef.



We are eating at my favourite Disney restaurant Coral Reef. I love the relaxing atmosphere and getting to watch the fishes.



We got a table by the tank.









I had the steak, surprise surprise.



Dad had the shrimp and grits.



Mum had the Mahi Mahi



I had the chocolate wave.



Dad had the citrus bread pudding.



Mum had the turtle cheesecake.



Met Baymax as the queue was very short.



Going to club cool before taking our positions for Illuminations.










































It’s extra magic hours so we headed over to Test track to make the most ridiculous car possible.



Our final score.



Had to include this cause my hair had a mind of its own.



We then went and met Joy and Sadness. I love the set they are in.









We then went on Soarin and got the best seats on the top row of B (centre)



We decided to go on living with the land before leaving.









Quick photopass picture before leaving the park.



We are at Discovery Cove today. This is usually one of my favourite days of the holiday!



We have got a Cabana today. It is a beautiful and relaxing area.






The cabana overlooks the dolphin pools.



Breakfast time.






Wearing a wetsuit today as I find the water in the fish area and dolphin swim areas very cold.



Mum and dad went to the Aviary but as I have a fear of birds I stayed back at the Cabana and watch the first dolphin swims.
























We went round the Wind-away river. This water was quite nice and warm.



We took some time to chill on the seats in the warm water.









We then had a look at the otter and marmosets.



Then it was time for our dolphin swim. We had Thelma and Luna for a little bit. Thelma is the leader of this pod.












Now it’s time for lunch. I don’t usually like American desserts as much but these were delicious.









We then took some time to relax in the cabana. The hammock was incredible.






We headed over to the grand reef. I’m not a big fan of the cold water or sting rays that are about three times the size of me!!
























We headed back to the warm seats and the otters again before closing.









I always come out of discovery cove with a big smile on my face and feeling fully relaxed.
