~*~ Our Disney & Sea World Vacation ~*~

Whewwwww....we just returned home from our week vacation at Disney and Sea World in Orlando, Fla. Boy am I tired! :) We'd never been to any of the parks, so we decided to go before our kids got to big. It was exhausting, but tons of fun. I took hundreds of photos, of course. We visited the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Sea World. We also took the monorail around to some of the hotels and to downtown Disney. We also visited Disney's Boardwalk. Our favorite parks were Animal Kingdom and Sea World. The Magic Kingdom was fun, but it was super crowed and HOT! I can not imagine people going there in the middle of the summer. In the Animal Kingdom it wasn't nearly as crowed and there was lots of shade. The landscaping was much more lush and nice. The kids got to see a lot more of the characters also, because it wasn't so crowed. My daughter rode the Mt Everest roller coaster 6xs!!! She rode it 3xs with me and 3xs with her dad. :) The parade was also really great. There are lots of characters and performers in really elaborate, mechanical costumes. Very artistic! It was super fun! Sea World had lots of great rides and the shows are fabulous. They also have a deal where you can come back a second day for free. You can't beat that. We got to feed and pet the dolphins, which was one of our favorite things. We love dolphins! Downtown Disney is fun for shopping, but it's also crowed. We really liked the Disney Boardwalk. It has some shopping, dining and really cool street performers. It's set up like a sea side boardwalk town, and again it wasn't nearly as crowded.

I thought I would share just a few of the highlights from our trip. Hope you enjoy! :)

~*~Animal Kingdom~*~

While we were walking along in the Magic Kingdom, this lady dressed as a tree comes by on stilts. She was so cool! Once she walked into the vegetation, she totally blended in and disappeared.

This tree is really neat. It's called the tree of life. It's a man made tree in the middle of Animal Kingdom. It has tons of "carvings" all over it of animals. There are several different places in the park you can see it, and you can see new animals at each spot. I believe it's 400 feet tall.
