Animal Kingdom after dark!

Reliving the fun! Better late than never, I figured I’d share some of our fave memories from Disney’s Social Media Moms’s event where we partied at Animal Kingdom for a Dino-Riffic event after the park closed.

We snapped this Family photo walking into the park which captures that glorious tree of life in the backdrop.

The last week has been a whirlwind returning home after 10 days of travel and than battling a nasty sinus infection. The good news about posting a week later is that I get to relive all the memories again sooner rather than later.

I love this photo with Chip n Dale. They are ADORABLE in person.

And yes, no matter how many times you visit Disney, the magic never fades. There are always more nooks to discover, characters to meet, rides to test out, and memories to make!

Hitting a park after dark during special events is always extra exciting for kids and for parents. No lines for rides, yummy food, and endless entertainment. We rode the Triceratops spin no less than 5 times.  The kids danced with Donald Duck and Daisy and we all enjoyed free carnival games – Whac a Mole and the Shooting Gallery were a big hit!

More fun posing!

Disclosure: Thanks to Disney for including my family in the Disney Social Media Moms celebration and giving us special media access, discounts, and many other extras as part of our experience. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own
