Florida 2013 - Day 10 - Animal Kingdom Lodge

This is a man on a mission to deliver food, his truck laden with a variety of cuisines. 

But not ordinary cuisines. He has pellets, branches and leaves in a variety of bundles and boxes. 

Yes, he is the Mexican Dr Doolittle and the animals love him. In fact, they love him so much they come running. 

Unlike our cat, the giant horned beasties wait patiently 2metres away from our food bearing friend whilst he unloads dinner.

In fairness it's been a long day hiding in the shade of the trees eating grass. 

I feel almost exhausted watching from the balcony of our room at the Animal Kingdom Lodge over the Uzima Savannah.

Due to our desire for a king bed, and a disaster involving a carpet cleaning, and the floor being too low, we ended up on the 4th floor. 

We love Disney's ability to work magic.

So while Mel bathed in the pool and sought bug spray for our night-vision tour over the savannah in a Land Rover tonight I watched the plains.

Ever get the feeling your being watched? :-?

So off into Jikos we go where they grow wine.

Steak for me, chicken for Mel. Boy that understates the quality here. 

The pudding. OH MY THIS IS DEVINE. Was the cheesecake! 

Droooooooooooooooool. We weighed up getting another.

So off on the night savannah tour. 

We were loaded into a truck and given night vision goggles, and away we go.

I tried like heck to get a picture through the night vision goggles with both my iPhone and camera.

Failed. So this is all you get. 

But the tour is amazing, please consider doing it.

For some reason the flash went off :-/

Here at touching distance is a giraffe feeding. If you want to touch a giraffe, the cheap sarangeti tour at Busch Gardens is a good bet. 

I got kissed by one there :-)

Sunrise over the savannah is something to behold. The closer you get to the equator the better they are.

One last look at the amazing lobby and off we go. 

Wow. This really is the best themed hotel in WDW in my opinion and it's a shame we only stayed one night in some ways.
