Our long week at Disney World in February ended with one more morning at Animal Kingdom before saying “goodbye” to the grandparents and embarking on the long drive home. Sure to arrive just after rope drop to avoid the early Pandora crowds, we headed straight to Africa for a morning safari, enjoying the adorable baby elephant and lazy lions.

We took in the thematic details of Harambe as we walked out of Africa, thoroughly enjoying the quiet and empty spaces this early in the morning. We walked around the Tree of Life to It’s Tough To Be A Bug on Discovery Island. Our final attraction would be another banshee ride on Flight of Passage, the new favorite for three of us with Grandpa using Gavin’s unwanted FastPass while he and Grandma spent time together at Satu’li Canteen.

We all ate lunch at Satu’li Canteen where we used mobile ordering yet again. It’s so quick and easy to choose a table, order right off the menu from the My Disney Experience app in the comfort of our seats, and then pick up our meal at the window minutes later. Daddy got another rice bowl while Mommy ordered the cheeseburger pods this time. Satu’li never disappointed on this trip!

The boys both bought Pandora creature sets to keep busy in the car and we hit the road, arriving home long after dark.
