I decided not to go OOP for the Rainforest although I was mighty disappointed. I did take a look at T-Rex and thought it would be fun... is that OOP too? I can't remember now.

Pics from T-Rex

It is loud like Rainforest (probably even louder) and the food is very similar. They are both owned by Landry's.














Here are several. I didnt realize how many I took. Your older 2 would probably really like it as well but I think Metri would love it. They have a Build-A-Dinosaur in the gift shop as you can see and Lance loved the entire place.

I just looked it up and T-Rex is not part of the dining plan but I think we'll at least visit it just to take a look at everything they have. It does look pretty awesome!

Yeah, none of the Landry places are part of the dining plan. That includes both Rainforest at DTD and AK. Thats the only bad part about them.

Hey, I wanna join in too! I found your link in the "If I Don't Get In..." trip report. We're going to be staying at Pop too but will be checking out just as you are checking in.

Where is this at? I have never even heard of it. Hunter would love this.

We love Flame Tree BBQ. Yes, there are birds there but they have never bothered us. The food is really good too.

I'm not really sure, I'm assuming the wall on the side of the castle that has the little path and the fountain. (I think the opposite side is Story Time with Belle? I'm not positive.) I'm hoping its a real thing. Anyone else heard of this?

Well just some random past trip pics this evening while I wait until its time to go pick up my DS13 from his school bus trip to Montreal.


Playing around in the POP gift shop while the DH and DS1 took a nap after our early flight in.


The Prince at 1900 Park Fare truly was a prince. My daughter was in love!


On the way to Its Tough to be a Bug


Photo-op!


A kiss from Ariel while visiting her at her Grotto.


My DS13 thinks he sucks at art, but I think he did a great job, don't you?


A high-five from Tigger! What more could you ask for?


Look at me trying to be all artsy with my photo angles!


Meeting Alice was a delight!


Indubidably good time with Marrrryyy Poppins!


Look out!


Curse you Buzz Lightyear! ....And your little dog too!


Fun fun fun!


These two are both Checkers Club Champions!


I told my daughter to pose like Minnie and she captured her perfectly!


Then my son was all... "Get me! Get me! I'll be Donald!"


"I'd like to thank the Academy....."


You may now kiss the bride!


See? I TOLD you we'd be back!


More artsy angles!


My daughter's second favorite ride in all of the parks. Her first favorite? Soarin!

And last but certainly not least, one of my favorites pics from all of our trips:


All right, time for me to go. Thanks for allowing me to share with you!

Thank you! I love looking at pics too. My son bought me a digital picture frame for Christmas two years ago - perfect gift for me! It sits in my office and I loaded up all my pictures and set it to change every 15 seconds. I could sit and stare at it all day!

Love the pictures. Thanks for sharing.

I imagine if I had ever gone as a child I would have been so into the tiara thing. So I love that almost every picture of your DD she has on a tiara. I still want one.

Which store were you in when you took the "I'd like to thank the Academy" picture?

I'm not positive but we were in Hollywood Studios and it was in one of the shops that are closest to the main entrance on Hollywood Blvd. I looked up what stores are there and it may be "Crossroads of the World" or "Mickey's of Hollywood" based on the descriptions of what they sell.

One of our favorite things to do is clown around in the stores taking silly pics
