I'm glad to hear you had a good time trick or treating! I had wondered what that event would be like, and it sounds like a lot of fun.

It sounds like you had great costumes. I am glad that you all enjoyed your Halloween. I have been reading several Halloween reports and now I want to go at that time.

I so want to find so time to start writing the next park update.

But, since my kids are so much older now, I haven't really seen The Super Sleuths. We don't watch a whole lot of Playhouse Disney anymore. (Yet Billy always wants to see the show at DS!)

There's a lot more Halloween activities at DTD than I had realized! If Liam had been a bit older, he would've really enjoyed them.

He looks darling in his costume!

I was really happy that I had decided against going to the MNSSHP party before we left home...so DTD turned out to be perfect for us this trip.

Sounds like you had a wonderful, relaxing non-park day. Trick or treating at DTD sounds like so much fun! And you ate at my new favorite restaurant.

Loved the costumes!
It was a very relaxing day.

By the mid-point of the vacation we pretty much knew what we could and could not do with Liam and that helped a lot.

DTD seemed really low key that night....lots of families but not overwhelming in crowds or what Disney had for entertainment/activities.

Thanks....I had worried that he would be too hot in it but the weather that night was fine. Up here in NH your Halloween costume has to fit over your winter jacket!

I loved all the Mickey-pumpkins that were everywhere.

Day 7

Day 7 Saturday November 1 2008

To recap what our plans were and what they became:

Yesterday (Day 6) the plan was to go to AK for an 8am Tusker House ADR and stay until late afternoon, then go to DTD for Trick or Treating. We skipped AK but did go to DTD.

Today (Day 7) the plan was to go to MK for the day with an ADR for The Plaza Restaurant at 5:30pm.

Since our first day at MK was a bust…not being able to do any rides and Animal Kingdom being a park that I love, we decided to go to AK today. The major plus with this plan is there are very few rides that Liam would have been able to do anyways so we weren’t going to miss much except the Nemo Show and FOTLK (both of which he will love when he is older).

The night before I got out my GREEN marker and wrote up a new touring plan for AK.

I’m writing this off of my memory, the photos, some receipts and the new touring plan I wrote up…so please bear with me if it’s lacking details……Here we go!



We arrived at AK very near 9am…we had missed the little opening show but we weren’t very find behind.

Since I haven’t been able to ride Everest yet (pregnant the last 2 trips and it was being built during our 2005 trip) we head straight for Africa and the Kilimanjaro Safari.









First we grabbed Fast Passes for KS to use in the afternoon, and then we jumped in the stand-by line to ride. (The extra FP ticket I have tells me that we got it at 9:17am…not bad to get from the gate back to Africa within 15 minutes or so!) We like to ride KS at least twice, once in the morning and once in the afternoon…we tend to have different animal sightings during each ride.

I gotta say…it was really nice to have had ridden KS before trying it with a toddler for the first time. We knew that the stroller parking was actually off to the side about half way thru the queue. And before we boarded our jeep, I knew to ask for row 2 or 3. The back of the jeep is WAY too bumpy for a little kid at the end of the ride when it speeds up…heck I don’t even like the back.

Liam did really well on the Safari; he sat with his Dad and looked around.

















Do you see the Hidden Mickey in this one?




There really is a lion up there, I promise!




These pictures are from walking down the exit path from the safari.







More to come......

Now that is good forward thinking....!!!!

Way to go Liam, so glad you enjoyed this ride!

I don't see it.....is it the indentation of the dirt/island ?



More to come......
looking forward to it!
