Animal Kingdom is one my families favorite parks at Disney. I think it's because it's so authentic. I really truly feel like I'm in Africa when I'm there.
This park is special to me and Keith because we spent a day here on our honeymoon in 2004. At that time it was a little smaller because they were in the process of building Expedition Everest (my kids call it Mt. Never Rest) and we couldn't wait to come back someday and see it.
I ended up chickening out. I was worn out from our whirlwind Florida vacation and I didn't think the ride would agree with me. I'm also a little bit afraid of heights.
What I did enjoy was visiting the Dawa Bar in Africa. I had read up ahead of time about all of the places to get a cocktail in Disney World and this place stood out to me.
It looks like a real bar on a street in Africa, open air....patio type place. They also serve African wine, beer and specialty cocktails.
I'm a sucker for a specialty cocktail!
African Margarita with
Sauza Gold Tequila, Van der Hum Tangerine Liqueur from South Africa, Sweet-and-Sour, and Lime Juice $8.75
Sugar Cane Mojito
with Starr African Rum and Sugar Cane Syrup mixed with Fresh Mint, Lime, and a splash of Soda
Both of these cocktails were delicious and refreshing! I would have had more....but they were also strong and I was afraid I'd get Lost in Africa!
