No way. There was a guy in there in his 50's getting his hair cut. They really do a super nice job!!!

Another fantastic day at MK with the Princess!

Tomorrow she wants to go shopping so off to Downtown Disney and Cast Connection and then back home for packing up for Tuesday BC's arrival.

Can't believe all you have to take for a one year old for just 3 nights. Holy Cow!!!

Teena...thanks so much for sharing Lily's trip with us and thank you Dee for starting this thread...Lily's pictures are adorable. As for packing...didn't you know that all princesses need a ton when traveling? You should've seen the stuff my girls were trying to shove in their suitcase earlier Enjoy every moment.

Wow! That's a great picture of the lion! I don't think I've ever seen him standing up! Lol! Looks like Lily's having a wonderful time.

It was an amazing safari. First we saw a baby rhino. The lion could see the baby rhino too so that's what he was staring at. Then we saw a bunch of baby pumbas (warthogs) chasing each other, jumping and running ... so cute. The ostrich was about 6 feet away from Lily's face. They just stared at each other.

Teena---

How long did you spend at AK? I keep reading about how a lot of people think it is way too hot and not much for the little ones to do, but based off of these pictures it looks like there is a bunch for them!

I am officially obsessed with checking this thread now! I keep showing off the pictures to my DH and he just keeps shaking his head at me! Perfect timing to get me SUPER excited for upcoming trip.

Wow, Teena, this is great! A princess in a Minnie outfit is really MY kind of princess! Since our boys aren't very interested in Minnie, I'm working on my two nieces - the first is a big Minnie fan already and the second won't be born until October, so we'll see how it goes. If you have any idea where Jeanne found Lily's adorable outfit, please let me know - I'd love to find it for one or both of my nieces!

And I'm a new Alice fan, now that our family decided to dress as Mad Hatter, Tweedles Dee and Dum and Alice (still waiting for my husband to agree to dress up or even wear a hat.) Wish I could find an Alice costume as tasteful as the real Alice in the photo with Lily!

The haircut (both the process and the results) is too cute! Just so happy for you, and looking forward to hearing about your adventures as a BC CL guest!

Mickey T, love the photos! Love to see a happy teen at Disney!

Dee, thanks again for sharing all of this with us!

Here's my feeling on the summer (I hate hot and humid)! Be there 15 minutes BEFORE park opens. We briskly walked on the Safari. Then, because Lily loves animals, we did the walking trail where the gorillas are. Then we took the ride out to the conservation center and spent a long long long time out there. Then took the ride back. Then we went to the baby center, had a very cool (like a nice 70 degrees) diaper change, feed her a nice lunch, rocked her to sleep in a quiet room, put her in the stroller and went off for our lunch at Flame Tree BBQ. Then we left the park around 12:30 PM and if we had been staying at the BC, we would have spent the rest of the day at SAB to avoid the horrible heat and humidity! By Noon, it was absolutely horrid (HOT) at the park so it was definitely time to leave. This is the only way to do ANY park in the summer. Hit it early, back to the pool and then if you have the energy hit the parks for late nights.
