We managed to get in bed at a decent hour the previous night, so we were able to get up early and make it to Animal Kingdom shortly after the park opened. We were able to go on, and do everything today that we weren't able to do the first time we went to Animal Kingdom. We enjoyed the park MUCH more being there first thing in the morning, as opposed to later in the day! After we had our fill of animals, we headed back to Downtown Disney to finish our souvenir shopping as our trip was quickly coming to a close! Then we headed back to our room to freshen up before our dinner reservations at The California Grill restaurant atop Disney's Contemporary Resort. I had read that this restaurant was one of THE best in all of Disney, and that you could also watch Magic Kingdom's fireworks show from the top. What a NEAT experience!! We went outside onto the hotel's rooftop viewing area to watch the fireworks. They even had speakers on the roof coordinating the same music and narration for us that was playing throughout Magic Kingdom!! Then it was back inside for our super Gourmet dinner. We have NEVER experienced a dinner like this, and although it was especially tasty, I'm not sure if we'll do it again- we're more of a burgers & fries kind of family. But it was definitely a cool experience, and I highly recommend experiencing a gourmet dinner at least ONCE in your life!!!
