I have to say I take things slower since I don't do a lot of rides. My migraines are worst now and a lot of the rides spark one. So I tend to do other things hehe

Too bad epcot was so busy that morning, but at least you guys had some fun, and got on soarin!I HAVE to try that croissont bread pudding! Read about it in Jess's TR and it sounds amazing! Yum!

God I love the beach club, it's SO PRETTY!! Even just for a laundry break!

I need to get to AK in the afternoon sometime, I'm sure it's way less crowded by that time, and I'd love to see it at night!

Yay, Safari pictures!!! You are right, that metal bar you took the picture of is where you overlook the Hippos on WAT.

I've never seen the Cheetahs that close before! And yay for an active Lion!

First, LOVE that Peanut is crawling. It all goes so fast.


Two good updates, Mel...although I'm sorry the first part of it had issues with your getting milk on your shirt and the crowds again.

I cannot believe you got pictures of the lion up and walking around; we have NEVER seen him move at all.

I love that photopass picture...a very different pose.

Hi. No I would totally use Fast Pass and come back for the shorter line. I would never voluntarily wait in a long line unless I really wanted to ride it and there was no other option.

I am pretty excited about Cedar Point FINALLY getting a Fast Pass like system. You have to pay an extra $50.00 (which seems ridiculously expensive) to get a wrist band that lets you bypass the main line. Last year was the first year they had it and we tried it for one of the days we were there and it was Awesome. We didn't wait longer than an hour to ride anything which was amazing.

Bummer that you spilled your chocolate milk. I did something similar with my Grand Mariner Slushie.

I really want to try Sum of All Thrills but I'm afraid my stomach couldn't handle it.

I've actually scene Living With The Land with a line like that! When we were there in November, the line stretched all the way back to Soarin'.

You got some great pictures on the Safari. I see that Stephanie beat me to the question you had about the WAT. I love the pictures of the Lion and the Cheetah. Someday I will see them moving around!

Innovations looks so fun! I can't remember ever spending a lot of time there but since it will be pretty hot when we are there and I really think Ava will enjoy it, we will make some time definitely!!
Bummer about the chocolate milk, that is totally me, I always spill Glad it came out though!
Love the Safari and the photo of the 4 of you!!!!

Love the safari pictures! Also, the PP is excellent - I like the different pose, it helped showcase Claudia better I think. EE does look better with the gray skies, gives it some realism. :D

What a good Diser you are for taking notes while doing the laundry. I need to do better at taking notes because most of my trip report writing comes from memory.

I've never seen the savannah look so empty! But, like you said, what animals you did see were up and about and waiting for their pictures to be taken. Very cool that you got to see both the cheetah and the lion walking around.

Wow, those animals really were active! AND THE LION!? I wasn't sure he could actually stand up! (So funny that you're doing safari pics now, because that's my next installment, too! Guess I had better get to it!)

Your mei tai carrier (spelling?) is gorgeous!

Ooooh, I love the way EE looks in the mist!

Hi Mel! I just started following along and didn't want to be a lurker, so wanted to pop in and say hi! I look forward to reading about the rest of your adventure...it is disappointing when our Disney plans don't get exactly how we imagined them for the months prior, so good for you for choosing to focus on the positive and list your accomplishments rather than list the things you wanted to do but missed!

Oh and Claudia is gorgeous!

EE looks really cool with the cloudy sky .. but i sure hope the weather got better for you guys !
Yes he does look much scarier standing up. Usually he just looks like a giant cat.

That was the worse day for us weather wise. It was chilly enough to need light jackets, and it was drizzling all day. It never rained hard though, and it got much warmer later on.

That makes sense. It's hard to resist the temptation of doing rides, but if you can't do too many of them, it's easier to appreciate the other stuff.

Laundry is boring, sitting there and taking notes meant not having to walk back and forth between the room and laundry several times, and it gave me a break from baby duties. I would have done it after everyone had gone to sleep, but I couldn't go on the balcony because the pack n play was in front of the door (and silly me didn't think of moving it), I didn't want to keep people up with the light on, and frankly, I was often exhausted.

I only had a tiny bite of the croissant bread pudding, but it was such an interesting combination! You'll probably love it.

Yes, the Beach Club is incredibly pretty.

AK is the one park where it makes sense to get there later. If you need to sleep in one day, or if you want to park hop from another park, it's a good park to go. The last few hours are often way less busy because everybody leaves early, or after the parade at the latest. There are still showings of the Lion King until pretty late, and then you have a good chance of being able to do EE several times with minimal wait.

Thanks for the info! Felines are my favorite animals so I was super happy to get to see BOTH the cheetahs and lions up and moving that day.

She's moving everywhere now! So cute to see her exploring.

The crowds and the chocolate milk incident sucked, but we had planned on doing laundry at some point anyway. Plus, it got us back to Animal Kingdom when we weren't even we'd make it back, and we got to see the lion walking so that was one major PLUS. It all worked on in the end, even though I felt like crying that morning.

I need to remember that photopass pose and do it again.
