Day 6 – Mistakes and Memories
Day 6 started out great at Animal Kingdom! Got to visit the Gorillas and see how much Lilly has grown and see some of her new little friends too. I really could spend an hour there watching them – unless something gross happens.
After standing around for a while we went on the Safari. Maybe I got bit by something because at this point my decisions are questionable. I decided it would be a great idea to ride the Kali River Rapids. If you’ve been on this then you know the soaking isn’t proportional to the amount of ride time.
That’s when I had to get a ride back to Beach Club to change my clothes and put my sneakers in the dryer then went back to Animal Kingdom/Kidani Village to eat lunch at Sanaa.
After spending some time at the hotel room, still drying out my sneakers I decided to make my next horrific mistake. I decided I wanted counter service Mexican food – I went to La Cantina. It was 100% crowded, not a table to be had, and the one that did open up didn’t have a single corner of shade. I also didn’t have a lot of success with the vegetarian side of things. I’m still ashamed of myself.
We walked around the China Pavilion including the two shops and the House of the Whispering Willows Exhibit featuring replicas of the Terracotta Army of Qin Shi Huang. I didn’t give this the attention it deserves – I didn’t even know anything about this major archaeological event.
To shake the shame from Mexico we went to the Stave Church Gallery in Norway and then finally took some highly recommended advice and tried the Norwegian School Bread. I would say it lives up to the hype! We paired it with a Linie Aquavit Glacier Shot which I did NOT care for because it reminds me of licorice (anise/fennel).
For dinner the family wanted to try Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs and I’m really glad we did. Everything was very good, very fresh and the Singapore Sling was fantastic. Even if the place reminds you of Kill Bill.
