Day 3, 4, and 5 at WDW

Sadly both Theresa and I got what we suspect was food poisoning from Les Chefs des France.  We were all eating pretty much the same food as Ruston and Jacob except for the French Onion soup.  Both of us had that and both of us weren't feeling great.  
Day 3 was spent inside the hotel room for the whole day.
Day 4 around noon, I was starting to feel better, so I headed to Downtown Disney with Ruston and Jacob.  Theresa stayed back in the room, but when we learned we could go to the Company D store (discount employee store) she ventured out.

After that we went to Hollywood Studios and joined Mike and Janet and all watched Fantasmic together.

The next day we got up and went to Animal Kingdom.

Our first stop was the conservation station back at Rafiki's Planet Watch.  Back here they do vet procedures on animals all morning.  You never know what they'll be working on unless you go there in person.  It could be a tiger, snake, birds, who knows?

Today they had a small owl out on exhibit.

And they happened to be working on a turtle who got run over by a car.

The three of us went to the petting zoo.

What a pig.

What are you guys looking at?

Seriously.  What are you looking at?


Next was the Kilimanjaro Safaris. 

Lunch was a delicious meal at the Yak and Yeti.

While Jacob and I rode Expedition Everest twice (really short lines here too), Ruston and Theresa went on a jungle trek.

We all met up at the Festival of the Lion King.

Then that afternoon we headed over to Epcot.  We've done the Behind the Seeds tour before, but it is one of Theresa's favorite things to do here, so Theresa, Jacob and I all signed up for it.  And we got to use Ruston's awesome 50% discount it only costs $9 each.

The tour group was us three, plus another family with 2 girls, 2 parents and 2 grandparents.  Our tour guide America gave out ladybugs to the two girls to shake out on the plants.  She quickly asked if anyone else wanted ladybugs then moved on.  Um, we all want ladybugs!  So yes, we all got vials of ladybugs.

Don't touch any of the plants!  But then I saw this plant that we got to touch last time and America let us touch it.  Now I want one!

These little guys will be moving on in the next couple weeks.  Where?  Uhh, some farm to live out the rest of their lives.  

 Time to toss my ladybugs!  Just kidding, we're throwing fish food.


We had fun asking America all sorts of crazy questions.  Like how much sugar do you get out of one stalk of sugar cane.  Yeah, she had no idea.

Time to ride Journey Into Imagination with Figment.

Then Spaceship Earth.

Dinner was Teppan Edo at the Japanese pavilion.  Instead of walking, we took the boat over.

Dinner was great!

And to finish the night, I took a few more photos around the World Showcase.

We headed back to the room then hit the pool.  Tomorrow we're going to the Magic Kingdom!
