The rest of our group arrived at 1:30am this morning. We spent a little time at Art of Animation before switching hotels. We wanted to show our new arrivals the Cars area of the hotel before we left and of course the kids had to pose in front of every car.

Animal Kingdom Lodge has two sections: Jambo House and Kidani Village. Marc checked us into our room at Jambo while the rest of us proceeded to Kidani where we were eating lunch. While we waited to be seated, we enjoyed one of the savannas.
I really enjoy Sanaa too. Even though I'm not an adventurous eater and never thought I liked Indian food, it was good. I especially like the bread service...and the atmosphere.
The 'decorate your own' cookies were definitely the highlight of the kids meals.
After our two hour lunch, we went to Jambo House hoping our room would be ready. The kids were so hopped up on sugar that I'm surprised they didn't knock the giant Christmas tree over.

|The most important appliance for the Kleinfelters!|
The pictures certainly can't do it justice! Some of the details not pictured are huge bath with tub/shower across from the laundry room in the entry way. And the gorgeous Lion King mural that is the centerpiece of the master bath over the tub.

After exploring, changing, and some unpacking we were excited to get to the Magic Kingdom.
The park was very festive.

|Lots of hot cocoa and cookies!|
