One month ago today, it was another relaxed day for Mr. Karen and me at Walt Disney World. It was less wet than the day before but still some showers around. We started with lunch at Animal Kingdom Lodge, the side where you can see the savanna from the restaurant (and walk out to a viewing area before and after your meal). I can’t decide if the best part was the bread service (four kinds of bread and something like 10 sauces) or seeing the month old zebra.
After lunch, we went to Hollywood Studios for the rest of the day, getting to do some things despite the crowd, which was big enough that they’d opened the gates to the overflow area next to the entrance to Toy Story Land. The highlight was getting to be pilots on the Millennium Falcon; it’s luck of the draw and we’d never gotten lucky when we did the attraction in California.
