so the bright colors was one of my three favorite things about disney. sure the characters and rides are fun too, but i honestly felt a little old for the magic as i was surrounded by non-housebroken toddlers and crying infants. rather, being the little wilderness adventurer that i am, another favorite of mine was disney's animal kingdom... specifically the safari ride. each day that we took the 'two week' vacation into the savana the animals got livelier. at one point, we were almost ran off the road by a charging rhino! okay, not really but he ran out right in front of us truck and trotted up the road as we followed close behind. by the last day, i could practically touch them... you have no idea how hard it was for me to resist the urge to reach out and pet the baby giraffe or ostrich that stood at arms length from the vehicle (sigh).
