Certainly wouldn't hurt! And like I said, we've have mostly good experiences with it!

You're going to be in AK the same day we are, the 21st, so if you see a blond 4 year old girl and a little brown haired 2 year old boy going bat-crap insane over animals, they may just be mine!

I have AK on our schedule for the afternoon / evening of the 21st. So, if you see two older people, that might be us. (Sorry, I don't know how to make smaller!)
May I add that I weigh 75 lbs LESS now than I did when that pic was taken? And note my LGMH!

The rumor is that Festival of the Lion King may be closing, but not being cancelled. It will be relocated to the Africa area when the much-discussed Avatarland is built in the Camp Mickey area.

Not so skinny -- I still have 45 pounds to lose before I get to the highest weight in the healthy weight range. My minimum to lose is 120 lbs, that gets me to the healthy weight range and where I was when I got married. I'm finally losing the baby weight -- my baby is 30 years old, lol. And she's lost over 75 lbs herself and may reach the top of her healthy weight range this week. I'm so proud of her for not waiting years to knock off the weight like I did.

I keep telling dh that she and I need to make a trip together, without spouses or kids, to WDW to celebrate. The man is dense, he isn't picking up on the hints, lol.

Well, you should be super proud of yourself!!! A 75 lb weight loss is amazing!!!

I need to lose about 40 to get into that healthy weight range...

Oh! Okay.I do know what they are...I forgot. They're the things DISers use to show they are DISers. I think I'm going to make one.

I think we'll definitely try one of them this time! Another thing we haven't done at AK is the "Conservation Station??" You take a train or something to a petting zoo area?? We are going to look into that, we are bound and determined to find more stuff to do at AK.

We usually go and do Everest, Dinosaur, Safari and Kali River Rapids...grab something to eat and go.

I like the Conservation Station. You take the train after you get off Kilimanjaro (we do that because the entrance to the train is near the KS exit). Nice little ride and then a nice walk to the Conservation Station. There are a lot of little things to see and do inside -- you might even watch the vets do things to the animals in the examination rooms. (I'm sure if it was something gross they would close a curtain or something.) Lots of display cases with critters. Interactive displays. Lovely wall mural in the entrance area inside and outside (be sure to look for Hidden Mickeys). And the bathrooms there are good too. Somehow, we've always missed the petting zoo part.

I'm worried there won't be enough hours in the park day for us to do everything we want to do at AK! I think my list has 21 things on it... With our crazy animal freaks we want to hit all the Animal stuff, so that's like 5 or 6 things. I was so happy when they extended the hours at AK.

I really want to experience AK at night or "at dusk".... So I might reconfigure our schedule to have a whole day at AK, or, another 1/2 day somewhere in the schedule. I feel like we don't use AK to its fullest, but none of us are huge animal people (though we LOVE our kitty, Lao Che) here he is:

Awww! He's a gorgeous tuxedo! My brothers cat is a tuxie. (He lives with us while my brother is at university.) We have 2 of our own. A sweet little long haired black named Raven, and a silver and black tabby named Lenore.
