One of the first things we did when we got to Animal Kingdom was go on the Safari Ride. It was very bumpy....but well worth it! We got to see lots of interesting animals - and Jake couldn't point fast enough. The cool thing about the safari ride is that the "less hostile" animals could come right up to the jeep (for example, the giraffe). No matter what, though - Jake especially enjoyed seeing the birds - and every time we ever passed a body of water, he would say "alkator" (translation = alligator).
