The highlights of this day of our recent trip was all about characters.
Barbie and I started off our day at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and besides hitting our favorite rides and exhibits, we got photos with Mickey and Minnie at The Adventurers Outpost...
...Daisy Duck at Discovery Island Landing...
... and Donald on Cretaceous Trail in Dinoland.
But the most fun was meeting Dug and Russell from Up on Discovery Island, particularly when Barbie gave Russell a kiss on the cheek, sending him into an apoplectic fit.
That evening we ate at Chef Mickey's, with our friends Kandi and John and their kids Jazzlyn (pictured with us below) and their son Grayson.
We got to be present for Grayson's first haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop located just off Main Street at the Magic Kingdom.
We also got to see several friends, several who had run the marathon that weekend:
Left to Right: me, Barbie, Noel, Beth, Derek, Charrissa, Marilyn, Kandi and Grayson
We watched The Festival of Fantasy Parade with friends Kathy and Ron.
And, because you can't get enough characters, we met Anna and Elsa!
Coming up in part's 3 and 4, even MORE Disney Characters! And Food!
