Magical Monday #13: Happy 15th Birthday, Animal Kingdom!

Animal Kingdom is celebrating it's 15th Birthday TODAY!  This occasion has a special place in my heart because we honeymooned at WDW just months after Animal Kingdom opened.  It was so fun experiencing a brand new park! 

I'd like to celebrate this magical milestone with a look back at memories we've created there during the past decade and a half.  I'd love to have you join me on this trip down memory lane! I hope you enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of Disney's wildest park!

13 years later, during our "just the two of us" trip, 2011...

The flavors of Disney's Animal Kingdom

The cream cheese wontons alone are worth making a reservation at Yak & Yeti! ScruMmmptious!

AK's Flame Tree Barbecue is one of our FAVORITE counter service restaurants on WDW property.  Just a whiff of that BBQ and you'll say, "The safari can wait!" ;)
