Kali River Rapids Expedition

 One of the Animal Kingdom's attraction that we went to is the Kali River Rapids.  To get in, you have to fall in line (it's long as usual.)   Waiting in line is  hard especially if you have kids but at the end of  the line, there is this ancient Southeast Asian temple where there are  neat and interesting displays that entertained us while we waited for our turn..
At least, you will be entertained looking at these displays before you can ride the white raft.  
 Good thing, we spent our Disney vacation with our family friend, the Dias family from Texas.  Our Burritos got to  play with their  friend Akesha.  Happy happy birthday dear Akesh, we  wish you  a healthy and  happy life.  We miss and love you!
  "Kali River Rapids flows through a dense rain forest and past waterfalls, temple ruins, and bamboo thickets, emerging into a cleared area where greedy loggers have ravaged the forest, and finally drifting back under the tropical canopy as the river cycles back to Anandapur. Along the way, your raft runs a gauntlet of raging cataracts, logjams, and other dangers."  source:touringplans.com
 The line was so long but the  ride itself only takes 3 to 4 minutes which  is not enough to compensate the time you've waited in line.  I was glad that we  did it in the afternoon when the weather was so hot because when we got wet, we felt a little refreshed.  The ride  did not have a tour guide,  so navigation was fully  depend on the twist and turn that the raft will bump into.  We designated our son as the captain of our  raft that day lol.
We all got wet but with smiles in our faces.  It was a fun and exciting adventure that was full of twist and turns  in a rapid river.
