Disney Marathon Weekend, part 2

Back to Disney. Our next day, we headed to Animal Kingdom.

I’d never seen the hippos sacked out like this before…

The tiger was gorgeous. And such a cat. He stood up for a minute and then sacked back out.

Leaving Animal Kingdom

We heard rumor that you could get zebra domes at the market place at the Animal Kingdom lodge and it turned out to be true! They were so good.

Then it was over to Epcot for our dinner reservation at Coral Reef:

Shark!

A bunch of divers went through the aquariums at some point:

I didn’t take a pic, but the mahi mahi dish was amazing.

As was this dessert.

Here’s our new room – they put us in one of the newly renovated rooms. It was really nice and clean looking, though I think I like the older tiki theming better? It was fun to see the new rooms though.

I do like the bathroom wallpaper:

Nice new carpet too:

It was pouring rain by this point, but Doug and I had our pact to honor. So we grabbed our plastic ponchos and got ready to go back to Epcot. We went to the Norway gift shop so I could buy something and have a conversation, which went way better than my efforts on the previous trip since I’ve had a few more months of studying the language. The guy I talked to was really nice, and Doug seemed impressed! So, fun! :-) Then we headed to Germany and he ordered some beers (they had my grapefruit beer!) in German and had a little conversation with the girl working there. So mission accomplished.

Last zebra domes before we headed for the airport:

I liked this tiki print and I ended up spotting it later in the Poly gift shop, so I bought it. It’s in our bathroom now. Dole whip plus retro tiki theming? Yes, please!
