We had been there once before for a trip to Magic Kingdom during Christmas time (which you can read about here) but this time we were all about EPCOT!
And we got to spend a night at Animal Kingdom Lodge, which was unbelievably magical!
My exhausted little travelers had a major second wind when we reached the hotel…I mean seriously the lobby looks like this:
This hotel is absolutely stunning. I had the photographed a wedding there a few years ago when we lived in Florida…but staying there is just the best hotel experience ever. You feel like you’re in another world, and the art and (real) animals make for the coolest African ambiance.
I bought this particular Lularoe Disney shirt because I felt like it had a very cool African theme for exploring Animal Kindgom Lodge:
We had giraffes outside our balcony. Yep…GIRAFFES! And Ankole Cattle, African Pelicans, and Antelope. Pretty amazing for the kids.
I also bought the cutest mouse ears since I knew we were headed to Epcot – featuring my second favorite Disney princess Jasmine (Ariel is first😉) so I was super excited to find these adorable ears on Etsy:
In Epcot we toured around the world eating delicious food and Steve got to sample delicious beers.
AND Frankie got his first kiss…from princess Anna! His face turned RED and he was convinced that Christoph was going to find him and be angry! LOL! I will NEVER forget that sweet moment!
