He was very excited to see himself on one of her pins!



I thought this border was appropriate for the day.



Next, we continued to head to Camp Minnie Mickey. Unfortunately, I had read the times schedule wrong and it was Nemo that started at 9:45, not Lion King. D'oh! So, we were there about an hour early for the first Lion King show.

We thought we'd make the best of it and get in line to see Minnie and friends. However, they weren't scheduled to arrive until 10:05. So much for getting there at rope drop! We weren't about to walk across the park and then come back. So, we just got in line and waited for Minnie to show up. In case you're ever in this situation, the signs for each line has the name of the character that will be there on the back of it. I just peeked around behind the sign to make sure we were in the right one.

According to the handy-dandy website I found, while waiting for Minnie to show up, it was 37 degrees with winds of 10mph.

Mom and Tessa thought they'd use the facilities while we were waiting. When they came out, they reported that they had met a famous dog in there! She was with a woman who has seizures and the dog can alert her 10 minutes before her seizure starts (how cool is that?). Anyway, this dog had been in a movie. I can't remember the name of the movie, but Tessa said that she had watched it on tv.

After what seemed like an eternity, Minnie finally arrived at the meet area! We de-iced ourselves and gathered at the entrance. Tessa was the very first one in line!





She got extra special treatment and Minnie walked with her down the path.







I was grinning like a doofus the whole time. I get so stupid around the characters! See, here's proof. Do I look cold, too?



I am wearing Thumper ears- not Roger Rabbit ears, Eeyore ears, Bugs Bunny ears, Brere Rabbit ears, or Rabbit from Pooh ears. Only one person guessed right all day! It was fun because lots of people tried to guess and lots of people said they liked them!

Sawyer was really cold and didn't want to get out of the stroller. So, Minnie Mouse came to HIM! Another kiss from a character!



Next, we got in line for Goofy because we had all sorts of time. Tessa did some pin trading with the CM that was working the line. He saw that her hands were shaking because she was so cold (she had gloves, but wasn't wearing them yet). So, he reached into his coat pocket and handed her a little packet. It was a hand warmer! She was thrilled with it and I was so thankful that he would give that to her! What a sweet guy!



It was hard to tear her away from the joy of a new hand warmer. But, she did give Goofy a hug. I thought this would tide over the "Henry Fanny Club" for now.





Next up, came one of the most magical parts of our whole trip!!! It really made our whole day!!!!!

As we were exiting the Goofy meet line, we saw that guy that walks around and sings. So, my mom just went up and asked if he'd like to sing a song about Tessa and Sawyer from Michigan. He did!! Plus, my camera worked pretty good and I got the whole thing on video!! You have to watch it, it's really cute!!



I just love that video!! We've watched it so many times that we know the song by heart! Can you believe that Chip and Dale even walked up during the song!! How perfect was that!?!?! I wish I would just keep my mouth shut when I'm video taping! I sound so obnoxious!!

I know this one's blurry, but just look at her smile!







If you watched the video, you will know why there are no pictures of Sawyer!

That was such a magical moment!!!

What a great way to spend some time before the Lion King show! Yes, I know it's called the Festival of the Lion King show. But, whatever! Tessa was just hoping that we didn't end up in the warthog section again. Apparently, she doesn't like to snort. We ended up sitting in the lion section, which we'd never done before.



Sawyer was much happier inside where it was warm.

They chose a guy to come out and impersonate a warthog for the show and who do you think it was??? It was the guy from the teacups and the family of the day at Magic Kingdom!



This was looking really fishy to me. : This time he was seated with the woman and girls who had been on the teacups, plus the camera crew. How did this family keep getting picked for everything? What was up with the camera crew?? Oh, how I wish I had asked!

We really enjoyed the show. It was much better than when we had been there in May. The singers were on tune and in time with the music. It was great!

I had never seen the Nemo show, so we decided to do that afterwards. I had heard mixed reviews on this show, but mom really liked it when she was here in May. I have a total of one picture from the show and it stinks- sorry!



I thought the show was cute. Did I think it deserved a giant auditorium? Probably not! The kids really enjoyed it, especially Sawyer. He was bouncing and dancing along to the music. He just loves Finding Nemo! Finding Nemo was also Tessa's very first movie ever in the movie theater. She was about 6 months old and she actually watched it! She even laughed at the jokes!

At this point, it was 43 degrees, with winds of 9.2mph and I could no longer feel my rear end. Seriously, I was wondering if it was still there. Sawyer had gloves, but he refused to wear them. So, I tried to keep his coat pulled down over his hands.

We had run out of indoor things to do, besides the Conservation Station. Oh, we also were skipping It's a Bug's Life because I thought it would freak the kids out. So, we decided to get something to eat at Pizzafari.

I got the most delicious sandwich in the world. I LOOOOVED this sandwich! Here, I found it on the menu for you. If you like this kind of thing, you must try it!!!

Hot Italian Style Sandwich with Carrot Sticks or Chips - Turkey, ham, Swiss and Provolone Cheese topped with Caesar salad and pesto marinated tomatoes - $7.49

Maybe my enthusiasm came from the warmth of the restaurant and the fact that it was a hot sandwich, though. The kids got breadsticks because they don't like Disney pizza. Those little pizza snobs! They were only $3.99, so it was a cheap meal.





We stayed in Pizzafari for quite a while, hoping that it would warm up while we were in there.





There was a little girl that kept waving to Tessa while we were eating. She looked like she knew who Tessa was. I didn't recognize her and she wasn't dressed like the child of a disboutiquer. She came over when she was done eating and said "You're Tessa! I saw the man sing a song about you!" It was so cute!! Tessa was thrilled. They talked for a while and decided that they were friends.

Mom and I were both ready to leave the park if it hadn't warmed up yet. Mom didn't have any gloves and her hands were getting really cold, too. But, when we came out of the restaurant, it was 48 degrees out and the wind had died down. So, we thought we'd make the treck out to the Conservation Station and Rafiki's Planet Watch.

Sawyer was excited to ride on this train and wasn't scared this time.





I don't know what it is about these elephants, but we always have to stop to play on them! They must have been really cold to touch!!



I got a kick out of my shadow.



We looked at our times guide and saw that the talking trash can was supposed to still be out. But, he was nowhere in sight. Tessa loves the talking trash can. It was the highlight of her trip in '06! She talked about it for years!

Here's Sawyer running around like a maniac while we looked for the talking trash can.



What's up with his foot configuration there?

We didn't see it and I REALLY wanted to get out of the cold, so we went inside. The first thing we did was to listen to the sound of the rainforest in one of the little booths. I always think that is so neat! We actually had to wait a little while for a booth. It seems that everyone wanted to do inside things today. I wonder why!

When a scary sounding animal came across the headphones, Sawyer grabbed his and threw them off. But, he bravely put them back on a minute later.

There was a really friendly CM outside of the booths that asked me if I liked hidden Mickeys. I told him that we love to find hidden Mickeys and that Tessa was an expert at it. So, he pointed to a little area on the wall and asked if I could find the smallest hidden Mickey in the park.



Did you see it?

He also showed me this one, which I thought was particularly cool!



We wandered around a bit and saw a bunch of people gathered over by the window where they do animal surgeries. I have never seen anything in there before. But, this time they were actually operating!!



They were working on a 450lb turtle. They said she hadn't layed any eggs and they were concerned that they were compacted inside of her. So, they were doing exploratory surgery. She also had some weird stuff in her bloodwork, so they thought something was wrong. They didn't find any eggs and she had been on the table for 5 hours at this point, while they tried to figure out what was wrong.

Suddenly, her flipper began to flap. A bunch of people ran over to try and hold the flipper down. There were 4 people on each flipper and they couldn't hold it still. The flipper kept flying around and hitting people. It hit one woman in the chest pretty hard. She had to leave the room. I didn't realize how strong turtles were! We watched for quite a while, completely fascinated!

Then, I heard a familiar squeaky voice- it was Tessa's old friend, the talking trash can!



As soon as we saw him, he had to go take a break. Tessa was pretty disappointed by it.

But, as soon as he was gone, we saw Jiminy Cricket.



This was turning out to be an exciting place!



Sawyer has been on a Pinocchio kick lately, so he was pretty excited to see good 'ol Jiminy.





I wonder why we never get to see Pinocchio anywhere? Sawyer would have loved that! The only place I've ever seen him is in the parade.

Rafiki was also there, so we got some autographs. The handler with him was barking out orders, as if Rafiki were the most sought after character at Disney. "Have your autograph books opened to a blank page, have your pens out, and your cameras turned on before you get to the front of the line." I automatically add a "please" for people like this who seem to forget that word.

We were ALMOST thawed out when Tessa started begging to go pet the goats. Come on!! We can do this at our local zoo! But, it's something she really loves to do, so we braved the cold weather to make the kids happy.





We didn't stay out nearly as long as we usually do over here. When a woman yelled at Tessa for trying to feed the goats grass, we decided it was time to go.

But, we heard that familiar squeaky voice again, so we had to stop for the "show". I was really annoyed because the voice of the garbage can was standing right there about 3 feet from it. So, we could all clearly see him talking, and even hear him talking. It was stupid! It kind of ruined the "magic" for me, but the kids didn't seem to notice. It was all I could do not to turn and talk to the guy instead of the garbage can. But, I let the kids hug a garbage can and we were on our way.

Right around this time, I notice my camera started doing some really weird things. I didn't notice this until we got home. But, it started putting green auras around stuff and making things look really weird!



From this point on, Sawyer checked out every garbage can at Disney World, just to see if it would talk to him.

Guess what, guys? It was still REALLY cold! The temperature had went up to 48 degrees, but there were wind gusts up to 16mph, so it felt almost as cold as it had in the morning. We were frozen and we were DONE!

But, since we were right by Kilimanjaro Safari, we thought we'd check on the line. Line? What line? There was NO line! I've NEVER seen that before! We just walked right up to the front and hopped on a car. This driver was SO much nicer than the last time we were here.

Did you miss that adventure? Well, that was then and this is now (which is also a book by S.E. Hinton).

There were lots of animals out. We weren't sure with it being so cold out, but we saw quite a few. Most of the deer-looking animals weren't out in the fields, though. Sawyer and Tessa both enjoyed it.







This guy was in there with the flamingos the last time we were here. Is he planning on living with them and studying them like the wolf man on tv?





After the safari, we really were done. It was just too cold to stay around and watch the parade. I really wanted to see it, but it just wasn't worth it. So, we headed out of the park. But, we had several photopass pictures taken on the way out. They're lovely, no?





I called Henry on the ride back to Pop and he said that it was below zero at home. Well, at least he didn't have to stay outside in it!

Mom once again offered to get the cups while I waited with the kids. She's so sweet!

I attempted to get in line with the kids to get their chicken nuggets and fries. Well, that didn't work out so well. Sawyer had gotten REALLY hyper on the ride over and he wanted to run, run, run. Tessa was being silly and giggling and I had a heckuva time controlling the 2 of them while I balanced a food tray. Ugh!

I did manage to pay for the food without dumping my tray. I just got chili fries for myself, minus the cheese (I despise processed yellow cheese-type substance).

We all got lots of hot chocolate. This time I drank it straight up, with a little bit of creamer in it. YUM!! Warm, creamy, chocolate goodness! I have a feeling this may be why I put on a few pounds during this vacation!

While we were eating, I noticed that some women came in with a frozen pizza. I was very curious as to what they were doing with it. They took it out of the box and carried it over to the beverage area. Then, they broke it into pieces and stuck it in the toaster oven!! That did NOT work!! We saw them dump the pizza in the garbage and sheepishly sneak away. When we went over to the beverage area later, we saw that there was melted cheese and pieces of pizza crust all over the oven, right next to the sign that says the toaster oven is for toast and bagels only.

Also while we were eating, I looked up and noticed a mannequin wearing this sweatshirt with lime green mickey head buttons on it. I thought my fellow Disers would enjoy it!



We went back to our room and discovered that "the maid" had put Tessa's gloves on her Baby Simba.



Tessa was amazed because she had been wearing her gloves all day, so how did they get on Baby Simba? She decided that it must be Disney magic!

She didn't remember that mom had borrowed her gloves when she came to the room to get our mugs.

We relaxed in our nice, warm room for the rest of the night while the kids watched some tv. Aaaaahhhhh.....

So I had a really long comment that I did on your last update while I was at work and it poof disappeared.

So annoying!!!

It must have been so weird to be in AK in the cold. I always think of that place as being the hottest spot this side of the equator! I mean the LION was awake...he couldn't even sleep it was so cold!!!

Loved the video. I've never seen the singing guy! Now I'll have to be looking for him!

Was the family with the camera crew filming a new Disney Special???

That was one COLD day! The only warm days here in Atlanta this month were the days we were at disney!

I love the guy singing to Tessa and Sawyer. I think he is quite unique. I loved little Sawyer hiding out in his cocoon.

That really annoys me about the pizza! That sign is RIGHT next to it! I saw it! Dallas loves chicken nuggets from disney.

I have never seen the Lion King or Nemo or been to Camp Minnie/Mickey! I would love to go buy my family just doesn't agree. The safari is my favorite! That was quite brave of Tessa to go on EE. Dallas said he would but we never went to AK. He loves coasters but is scared of the yeti. Silly kid is scared of the yeti on the matterhorn too!

GOOD INSTALLMENT HEATHER!!

1st- NO you are not posting too fast! I'm loving that you are doing it as quickly as you are. I had a long post made out for the last installment and it disappeared, but I read it AND enjoyed it too!

2- Are you trying to tell us in a subtle way (when you say you could no longer feel you bum) that you froze your butt off?!?!? If so, it would make sense to me that you would've LOST weight on this trip- thus making drinking all of that hot chocolaty goodness an ok thing to do! ( I can justify ANYTHING Heather- so when you need to find a reason or excuse, just contact me. I'm good at it, I'm fast AND it's free!)

3-LOVED the Tessa-Sawyer song (I've never seen that guy before- so cool!) But what I loved most about it was Sawyer closing the top of the stroller on that guy- that had me laughing out loud! TOO FUNNY!!!

4- Jiminy Cricket? JIMINY CRICKET!?!?!?!? AWESOME! You had some great character interaction at AK on this trip. Next time you go there, I wanna go with you (Especially if it means I'll freeze my butt off!!)

5- Turtle surgery- AWESOME AGAIN DUDE!!! Which one of Nemos friends was it?



LOVED this installment and loved the pics too!

How come that keeps happening? Disappearing posts-oh my!

It was really weird to be cold in AK. We were holding out hope that since it seems to be the hottest park in the summer, that it would be slightly warmer than the other parks. However, I don't think that happened!

That singing guy is great! Castle Creations posted a video a long time ago of him singing to her little girl and she was dancing around. It was SO cute. Tessa was more concerned with her hand warmer.

The odd thing about the family with the camera crew is that the camera crew joined the family without the cameras after the teacups. Very peculiar, indeed.

In defense of the women with the pizza, it is entirely possible that they didn't speak, or read, English.

You really should try to see the Lion King show the next time you go. It's really pretty spectacular. There are some that don't like it. But, most people love it!

I've never been on the matterhorn! I really want to go to Disneyland! The only other time I've been there was when I was 17 and I don't really remember much.

Thanks for the smiley list, I loved it!

My mom gets lost most everywhere else, even at the mall. But, she knows her way around Animal Kingdom like no one else! I generally walk around AK all befuddled.

Yes, Tessa has confirmed that the chicken was shaped like nuggets and not fingers. They didn't look too tasty to me, more like McDonald's processed chicken product.

I was afraid you didn't love me since you hadn't posted yet. I am so relieved that you still have a place in your heart for me.

Yes, you would have thought that freezing my bum off would have made me lose weight. However, I am much flatter in the back than in the front. So, I didn't have much to freeze off. Now, if I would have freezed off my front (which would include my big belly and *ahem*) I would have lost considerably more weight. *sigh* such are the ways of nature.

I was trying so hard during that song not to laugh out loud at Sawyer because I didn't want to ruin the video. But, I thought Sawyer was hilarious!

I think the turtle must have been Crush's great-great-grand daughter or something because she was only 31 years old.

BRRRR!!! I didn't know it was in the 30's in November! That's SOOO cold!! This was our coldest day, thankfully! If it would have stayed this cold, I would have tried to get on a plane back home!

I remember when I was a kid, we used to go to Florida every year at Christmas time. One year when we got there, we still had snow on our car from Michigan. My grandpa was so excited to see snow that he put it in a cup and stuck it in his freezer. It was so sweet. I miss my grandpa.

Well, since we were two hours from our destination, they gave us two loaner seats and told us they would hold ours until we got back to fly out. For obvious reasons, this made me very nervous. But the seats were there when we got back so it worked out ok.

Loved the AK day! You are just soooo cute in your rabbit ears. And I never seen the singing guy. I couldn't look at the videos because my new computer did not come with speakers but I will have to get some because I am very interested in seeing the song.

Tom does not care much for the conservation station but I like it; it is a nice place to hang out when the park gets crowded. We have seen Pinocchio at the studios, but it has been a couple of years. He gave Jacob a soda once. Jacob was probably as old as Sawyer and we were the only ones in line and Pinocchio gives him a cup of soda. It was the weirdest thing!

Anyway, sorry you were so cold. I was too!

I'm pretty sure I posted at least once to this thread before my last comment Heather, but, if I didn't, I SINCERELY APOLOGIZE! I could NEVER forget you! You're the reason I come to the DIS every single day!

No! That is not the same as Henry's!

Sorry it was so cold! When we went in the 70's one year over Christmas, they had record lows...my Dad did NOT bring a coat! Yep, he nearly froze!

That song guy is too funny! I had to watch it again! I just laughed at Sawyer!!!

Cool! I didn't know trutles were so strong...I hope that girl was okay after being hit...oops...I'm worrying about people on your vacation now!

And to back up...Tessa sounds like Katie so much sometimes! Katie would totally LOVE to something like EE...but would act SCARED to death with me I know!

Great update!

Wow it was cold! Your kids shirts are so cute! I also really loved your Mom's sweatshirt. Did she get it there at WDW? I need a Disney Sweatshirt.

I can't believe Tessa rode EE twice! The cold weather just makes it more authentic, didn't you feel like you were in the Himalayas?
Your pictures of that ride are really good, and they reaffirm to me that I will never get on that ride *yes I am a big chicken*

Ethan does the same thing with our stroller (pulls the cover down over himself) We have an older version of that stroller and I love the little place where an older child can stand on the back. They guy with the guitar was really cool and it was so cute that the girl at Pizzafari remembered Tessa.

I like your Thumper ears. And I giggle like that too when I see the characters. Buzz Lightyear really liked a couple of shirts I made my kids and he got down on one knee and kissed my hand. I was giggling and I am pretty sure I turned bright red.

There sure was a lot of stuff going on at Conservation Station! That Turtle sounds scary I think she needed a little more anesthesia, poor thing.

Loving your trip report although I haven't gotten through all of it yet...I can't believe the airlines didn't make any attempt to seat you and the kids together...I mean they are 5 and 2 yo, not 15 and 12 year old! Glad that you found someone to swap seats with you.

Can't wait to read the rest of your report..
