Baby Panda will be making his public debut tomorrow. So excited, didn't think we'd be able to actually see him on our trip!

Ha. If it were up to my DH, we'd only spend 2 days at the parks. I thinks 1 day per park would be enough!

I just saw footage of the baby panda on channel 7 news. He was walking down some big rocks. He is sooooo darn cute!

Just keep in mind that until further notice, he will ONLY be on exhibit from 9:30 to 11:30 AM, so if you want to see him, get there early!!!

Thanks. We planned to go there first thing, but we'll make sure we double check the panda's hours as soon as we arrive.

We saw the baby a couple of weeks ago - such a cutie, and clumsy like a toddler.

Baby pandas are adorable! They had a fairly young one when we were at the SD Zoo in Oct. 2008. I agree with the "go right away" idea. We went early and there were only about 20 people in the whole exhibit -- even after getting lost on the way there! You could take as much time as you liked. When it gets busy there is a Disney-sized line to even get in and they shuffle you through at a swifter pace.
