I can't think of any drama that happened at AK....maybe some will come to me as I look at all the pictures for that day....but yes we were off to a good start.....only took 7 days!

Thank you for the update, hon! I love the pictures from the Animal Kingdom. I love all the parks, but the theming of that one just gets me.

And it's too funny about that hidden mickey! I love it.

I love these pictures -- I have never even spotted all of this stuff coming off the safari -- I need to make a note to look for them next time.

I love your pics of the theming at AK. They are wonderful.

I was just thinking how big Liam has gotten since these pics were taken. He looks so much bigger in the ones you posted recently.

Ahhhh, AK! I love the theming-it makes for such beautiful pictures.

I'm very glad to hear Liam did well on the Safari! Henry was a bit iffy on it in November. Good idea about asking for the first 2-3 rows, I'm gonna remember that one, we were in the 2nd to last row and it was BUMPY and the during the end I was holding onto my baby soooo tightly!

re: dinner for 2 on balcony

Does any one have pictures of the dinner for two on the balcony.
I am going to disney and have already made my reservation for the dinner for two on the balcony with the butler service.

But they will not show me photos of the views from the balcony.
They say you can see the castle, the illuminations show and the wishes show as well from the balcony.
Even though i am sure it is a great view i want to be certain.

She is kind of shy so I am planning on proposing on the balcony durring the fireworks. So i really want that night to be perfect in every way that i can make it.

Any other suggestions would be greatly apprecited.

You can email me at Martys567(at)gmail(dot)com

I was trying to go with what we could DO, not what we couldn't do.

I have decided to upgrade AK to a 2 day park for the next big family vacation.

He went on a growth spurt over the winter and gained a lot of height. And he's huge compared to Danica....

It makes the end of the ride so much more enjoyable. I have no problems asking for specific rows etc. and you usually only have to wait a couple minutes more, if at all.

It did end up being a good day. The night had an issue or two but nothing compared to the early part of the week.

Next up on our tour of Africa was the Pangani Forest Trail. I never miss it....





Dirty Birds! DIRTY Birds!! DIRTY BIRDS!!!!! (Oh Kathy I will never be able to go in that aviary without thinking of Aunt Rae!)







I have no good pictures of the Hippos but do you know the video monitors that are housed in this thing?



Well DH and I figured out where one of the cameras are for that....

This is by the Gorillas and hidden up next to the tent is a camera....it's just to the right of the tent. I love figuring out little things like that at Disney!





I love these little guys but I'll fuss up that sometimesI end up watching the Florida Vultures in the distance more than the Merkats.











I could spend a hour or more watching the Gorillas. I loved watching this guy move around.


















Where did we go next?
