Trip log:

Started off the morning sleeping in a bit, well for me.. till 7:30ish.   Gathered the rest of my group and did some clean up then headed out for the day.  Arrived at Animal Kingdom late morning, thanks to a later start then a long bus wait and a slow bus trip.  We made our way out to Africa and decided to visit Conservation Station then walked through Pangani Forest.  Grabbed a quick lunch at Pizzafari before our FastPass time for Kilimanjaro Safari.   After our trek decided to head for the buses.   Some back to the room and my for the Magic Kingdom.   Arrived on Main Street just after 2:30pm so had a half hour before Festival of Fantasy.  Played a quick round of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom then found a spot in front of Cinderella Castle for the parade.   After the parade wandered into Tomorrowland and onto the Carousel of Progress.  Strolled along the train tracks into Storybook Circus then through Fantasyland. It started to drizzle so I picked up my pace.  By the time I reached the Village Haus the skies opened.  I found an umbrella and waited out the storm.  Then walked out to Frontierland as another burst started.  Paid a visit to the Country Bears and then met the rest of my group at the Columbia Harbour House for dinner.   While eating booked a FastPass for the Jungle Cruise and Winnie the Pooh.  Walked over to the Jungle Cruise and went for a trip.   While in the queue rebooked my Winnie the Pooh time to earlier.  After disembarking walked over to Fantasyland and onto Winnie the Pooh.  While in line booked the Little Mermaid next.  Walked over and onto that attraction and booked a Buzz Lightyear from the queue.  Had 5 minutes to spare in Tomorrowland so decided to go for a spin on the Peoplemover.  It broke down while we were out over the Speedway and we were walked off.  Used our FastPass+ for Buzz then looked for another attraction, nothing available of interest to us.  So I roamed around taking some pictures then stopped by the fire house to pick up some Sorcerers Cards.  Found a spot on the Train Station for the Main Street Electrical Parade.   After the parade headed for the bus and back to Pop Century to wrap up the day.
