Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Wow! It has been a crazy long day. We have been up since 8 am running around like crazy people. Our little foursome did two of the Disney parks today! In this post, I’’ll share with you some of our Animal Kingdom experiences!

The day started off bright and early. We got up and were ready to catch our shuttle to the parks. I started off my day with some oatmeal and tea. Bringing this oatmeal for breakfast was one of the smartest things I packed. All you do is add some hot water, and you are good to go! It held me over for a while and I didn’t have to buy breakfast! Win!

One short shuttle ride later and we were ready to hit the park! I tried to stay hydrated all day, so I was always drinking water! Walking around all day takes a lot out of you, and I still want to have a good race on Sunday, so I’m trying to take it somewhat easy.

Lots of water!

There are only a few main rides at Animal Kingdom. First we hit up Dinosaur. I love this ride. It’s always so fun, and I always get scared! I was holding on to Michele for dear life!

We were all scared of the dinos! Such a funny picture!

And then we headed to Asia. We had our sights set on Everest!

Yes I am that crazy girl that takes her camera everywhere – races, rollercoaster’s – It is always attached to my hand and ready to point and shoot at any moment’s notice! I love this picture of the ride on Expedition Everest. This was a fun ride!

We had a blast!

My favorite ride at Animal Kingdom would have to be the Safari ride.

We got to see lots of animals. It was very entertaining.

***Side Note – Whoever can tell me what’s ‘funny’ with this picture first will get a present from me from Disney! It’s tricky! Leave a comment below***

After a few good rides we decided it was time for lunch. And since we are all on vacation we decided to have beers with our lunch! I enjoyed this Safari brew. It was delish!

And yes that is 22 ounces. You know how I roll.

I snacked on some bars throughout the day and didn’t want to drop too much cash on lunch, so I ended up getting a bowl of jasmine rice with chili sauce. It hit the spot!

Check out my fortune! I hope this will bring me good luck on Sunday!

It’s A Disney Day!

Today is all Disney! We have Park Hopper passes and plan on starting the day out at Animal Kingdom and then who knows! I am pumped!

Since I will be spending the entire day in the Happiest Place on Earth I figured I would post some pictures from my trip last year. I am such a kid at heart, I get so giddy thinking about seeing Mickey Mouse and seeing Cinderella’s Castle!

Last year, fiancé and I had an awesome time together, but this time it’s a girl’s (Princess!) weekend. Let’s revisit some of my favorite pictures from my last visit to Disney!

I love this picture from last year. It’s so candid.

There we go, all posed!

Monster’s Inc. is one of my favorite Disney Movies. I have so many it’s hard to pick ONE favorite, but Monster’s Inc. is up there.

What’s your favorite Disney movie?

Epcot is one of my favorite parks. I love all the innovative rides, and drinking around the world is a must!

What’s your favorite Disney Park?

I’ll be back later with a full recap of our fun filled day!

Down Time

Holler! It’s been a lazy day in Leslie Land! Not really, I was pretty productive, for traveling all morning and having a day off! Since we last spoke I did a little writing and did a little running.

I went to the gym and only planned on doing a little 3 mile job, but I ended up doing 5!

I was sporting my favorite running shirt.

Oops, backwards!

disney 006

There, that’s better! I got to represent my hometown when I travel, yo!

 disney 007

I ran my 5 miles on the treadmill while watching Ellen. I love her, she’s so entertaining. I had Jackson hanging out with me on my phone while I ran. I miss that little guy already, and it’s only been a few hours!

In other news I will be running the race on Sunday in shoes with different color laces. I was trying something on my shoes that was sent to me to review and the other grey lace walked off!

Does it look weird, or are you secretly going to do different color laces yourself to match me because you think it looks hardcore?! You know it looks awesome!

disney 009

After my 5 miles, I was glowing! It felt good to sweat!

 disney 012

Throughout the day I snacked on all this. It was sort of a breakfast/morning snack/lunch/afternoon snack combo. Snacks included a chocolate raw crunch bar, Banana Bread Walnuts from Living Nutz, and two new chewy granola bars from Nature’s Path – Berry Strawberry and Chococonut.

My roommates finally all got here and we headed out for dinner. I was starving after my run so I was ready to eat! Our hotel has a nice little food court right around the corner, so that was convenient, but the food was all crap. I finally settled on the only possible remotely healthy option on the menu.

disney 014

I got an Asian Chicken Wrap. It was yummy, and I ate it in about 5 seconds flat.

disney 015 

I think I could have eaten an entire other wrap!

I am off to watch TV and go to bed early! I have a big day of Disney tomorrow! Night Night!
