Hi everyone and thanks for reading!!! Ha Ha Racefan, that's too funny. It definitely wasn't me, we were in Epcot on Saturday!! Oh, how I wish I could go back to that day.......Ok, back to reality!!!

I'll get my AK day up very soon, I am sick, and I have my nephew's birthday party that starts in an hour and a half and me and the kids are still sitting here in PJs, so I gotta get going! Ya think!

Tonight I'll upload all of the pics from that day and i'll either start it tonight or tomorrow. Tomorrow there's a big parade that goes right by my house and we usually have a cookout to celebrate my bday. It's actually this wed. but I have to work.

Ok, i'll be back tonight!

we were in Epcot on Saturday!! Oh, how I wish I could go back to that day.......Ok, back to reality!!!

I am enjoying your TR so far! I subbed to your PTR and enjoyed reading your plans as I too was planning our trip!

We were also at Epcot last Saturday... I would LOVE to be back there again! That was our last day at WDW. The last thing I did at about 4PM was use up our last 5 snack crdts on churros from the Cantina in Mexico while my DH took as many last minute pics as possible!

I think we may have been at MK on the same day as well (5/12) but we left the park at about 4PM before the rain for ADR's at Ohana.

Anyway, I am so looking forward to the rest of your TR. Your kids are so adorable! I hope to do a TR, eventually when things slow down and I get caught up.... as if that is ever going to happen....

Sunshine 1987, i'm trying to think about what time I was in Mexico, it was probably about that time, but maybe a little earlier I love Epcot and I love the World Showcase, so didn't all of my kids, they all, even my 5 yr old, thought it was amazing.

Did you guys stay at the Family Suites? I do not recall that large of a table in the regular rooms, if so - that is GREAT!!!

Still enjoying the report... Love all the pics.

Nope we had 2 connecting rooms at the Movies, so we just brought one table into the other room and made a "family size" table that night!!!

Our first Full Day!!!

Ok, i'm uploaded about half of our pics from this day, so i'll start!!


We slept in a little bit this morning because if you remember the morning before we were all up at 3:00am waiting for the Limo!!! We were so tired!! I didn't really sleep too late, I was up by 8 and laying everyone's clothes out, I was so excited for this day. Who am I kidding, I was excited for everyday
So once everyone was up and dressed we went down to the foodcourt and filled up our mugs and every morning we would use snack credits for things like toasted bagels with cream cheese, muffins , danish etc... The kids loved it. And everything was so big, just a snack credit was a big enough breakfast!!

We went out to the bus stop and we were off to Animal Kingdom, I knew the kids were gonna love this park.

<a href="http://s91.photobucket.com/albums/k296/3princesses-aprince/?action=view&current=2009_0513AB.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k296/3princesses-aprince/2009_0513AB.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>





Ok, so we got off the bus and hit the gift shop that was right outside of the park, we didn't even get in the park yet And.....It was all Manny!!! Sam bought a pair of Minnie Mouse ears , Anthony bought these funky sunglassed which he collected in many colors over the course of the week, you will see plenty of them in this trip report, he's too funny. And Emily did her first pin trade, she was so excited. She traded a Mickey Pin for a Dale pin. She thought the pin trading was great



Here's the crew, ready to take on AK with Minnie ears and funky sunglasses!



Oh, as soon as we walked into the park we were amazed at everything! It was all so pretty. And it was Hot this day and I heard that AK always felt hotter, but to us it felt cooler, there was always a breeze and almost everywhere was shaded.

This is the first awesome guy we came across, it's a giant anteater





Our first sight of the Tree!!!



And then we had our first character sighting of the trip. Me and the girls were off the wall excited!!!!









Oh, my god, Lilo and Stitch were so funny!!! I have a video clip of Stitch throwing Emily's book on the ground, then Lilo grabbed the other book from him so he wouldn't throw that one, then he wouldn't give back the pen. The kids got quite a kick out of him. Oh and then he was pointing to Anthony's glasses "asking" what the point of them was!

Next we ran up to the Safari because this was supposed to be our Dismeet. A few were there but they were already hot and pooped. It was our first full day in Disney so we were rearing to go. So we said hello and goodbye and grabbed us some Safari fastpasses.

We then headed back to camp Minnie Mickey, the girls were really waiting for some more character autographs.

On the way there we stopped and let Emily buy Chip and Dale, they are her new favorites.



Then we got in line to meet chip and dale





My god, Anthony is getting so big.



Ok, so while in line there was a man walking around playing the guitar. He stopped at us and asked Emily what her name was. He then asked if we wanted to hear a song. So I put my camera on video cause I just knew something good was coming. And I was right. He sung a song about Emily on her famous Disney World Trip with her Family and how she had Chip and Dale and sunglasses on her head. It was the most memorable experience from our trip. I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it. I constantly have that song that he sung for Emily in my head. It was so wonderful. I'm going to try to upload it, not sure how long it will take. But maybe i'll get it up here tonight, it's definitely GREAT!!!

After Chip and Dale we just went from line to line and saw our other friends.







Ok, another wonderful story here at Minnie Mouse. The CM you see pictured here with Manny was so awesome. Her name was Judith. She was in the line when we were visiting Goofy and she was asking the girls why Daddy wasn't going near the characters. She said " I think he's scared" So she followed us to Minnie and after the girls took their pic



and got her autograph she went up and told Minnie about Manny. Soooo Minnie went after him and she kept going back after him and kissing him. Someone in line was saying that he was going to tell Mickey! We were cracking up, it was so much fun.





And then when Anthony was starting to walk away she shook her finger at him, like "oh no you don't" and went to kiss him.



Let me continue in another post....

I just LOVE AK...I agree that it is an absolutely beautiful park!

We saw that guitar guy in Camp Minnie Mickey too! He was really good. How cool that he did a song for Emily!

Love the pics of Minnie with Manny....classic!

Ok, next we were off to see Mickey Mouse!!!!!!!! I love how this picture came out, we made it into an 8 by 10 and i'm going to buy a nice frame for it.



That completed all of the characters at Camp Minnie Mickey, we were very happy campers. and hungry, so it was off to pizzafari











We loved this restaurant, I thought it was so pretty!!! So we ate pizza of course and relaxed in the nice AC.
It was now time for our Fastpassed to the Safari

We got on and were very excited to go!!







We were all very pleased and amazed with the Safari, we saw so many animals, i'll put a few pics up.

Hippos



I don't know whats, but that was a termite mound



Giraffe



Elephant



Ostrich eggs



Ostrich



The poacher's site



The Safari of course got a thumb's up. That is a must do for next time too!!!

After that we hopped on the train to Rafiki's Planet Watch, I was almost going to skip it, but i'm so glad I didn't.

We took a nice relaxing train ride there





These statues are set up as soon as you get off the train



Everything up here was so pretty



Then we saw little monkeys



Let me continue again......
