Our last full day

Today is a sad day as it is the last full day on property.  For our last day I wanted to see the Legend of the Lion King show over at Animal Kingdom.  We took the car over to Animal Kingdom and hopped on the tram to take us to the front gate.  Made it through dreaded bag check and made our way to the theater for the 11:00am show.  I like this show and had not seen it in a few years and it was as good as I remembered.  After the show we headed over to the Yak & Yeti restaurant for lunch.  We did not have reservations but we were able to get a table.  Kim started her meal with a side order of fried green beans and I had the pot stickers.  For our entrees Kim had the honey sesame chicken and I had the tempura shrimp.  After lunch we left the park just as it started to rain.  By the time we hit the tram to get back to the car it was full hard rain.  We got to the car and drove to Downtown Disney to exchange a shirt we bought yesterday.  After exchanging the shirt we headed back to the hotel .  The rain stopped just as we made it to the hotel so we decided to go over to Disney Hollywood Studios so Kim could see the new American Idol Experience.  As we entered the park the Block Party parade started so we cut through the store and headed to where the parade would stop next.  We found a location across from Idol and watched the parade.  When it was over we lined up for the 4:00pm Idol show.  We had not seen this show and what makes the show so different is that park guests are the contestants.  Each of the 3 contestants sing a song and the audience votes on a winner.  The show was good and I was surprised how elaborate the set was.  There are 3 judges that offer their opinion after each performance but have no say in picking the winner.  The show lasted about 30 minutes and the person who won was from England.  He was very good but the name of the show is AMERICAN Idol.  Maybe they should change the name to International Idol.  Once Idol ended we still had over an hour before our dinner reservation over at the Hollywood Brown Derby.  We went to see if we could get in sooner than our 6:40 time.  We got right in and had a booth on the outside of the large open dining room.  The food was good we both ordered a strip steak, but our server was never around and at one point we asked another server for drink refills.  This was by far our weakest meal during our visit.  After dinner we took the bus back to the hotel and packed up for tomorrow.

Getting ready to leave, will post more photos when I am home
