For most people, Disney World is where they went on annual family vacations. When I was growing up, I envied those families. I thought that I was missing out on his huge magical thing that I would never get to go to. But the plus side of going to Disney for the first time as an adult, you appreciate it more. It’s a chance to be a kid again, be tall enough to ride rides, buy all the pins you want and not have to beg your mom for one more ice cream.
My boyfriend Mason actually works for Disney, so it was super convenient to just be able to wake up one day and just go. Since Magic Kingdom had block out dates for employees, we went to Animal Kingdom for my very first trip.
Animal Kingdom is SO cool! There’s an animal reserve that a ride drives you through, there’s ice cream (what Disney trip would be complete without ice cream?), there’s even monkeys in the middle of the park!
Obviously all I cared about was the Kilimanjaro Safari, where you are basically close enough to touch these super awesome animals. But there are lots of other fun things to do there too! We got there when they opened, did all the rides, got ice cream, and were done by 10am! Which was perfect for day drinking at home, because, what else do you do in the middle of the summer in land locked Orlando?
