Back to the Trip Report....

Next Stop:


Liam enjoyed the train ride out to the Conservation Station. We had half the train car to ourselves and we felt comfortable letting Liam sit on the seat himself, not Daddy's lap.


When we arrived, Liam needed a diaper change so DH took him to the men's room. I suggest to everyone to go to the restroom out here...there's some funny stuff in there.

While they were doing diaper duty I found this guy. I remember Jimminy Cricket from when I was a little kid.


If you see JC with blue marker on his glove...it's was me...oops!


I think the huge mural of animals with hidden mickey through-out it is worth the train ride alone.


Pocahontas' show had closed the week before so I guess she found a new job here. Liam seemed like he was going to be ok with her and then DH put him down You can see how well that worked out.


We explored the station and let Liam walk around on his own for a bit. There was some sort of animal exam going on so I watched while DH ran after Liam.

Next up was the Affection Section....in the real world we just call it a petting farm Liam wasn't too sure at first has he had never been to something like this before.





Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin!


After watching the other kids brush the animals, Liam got brave. He went all around to the different animals "brushing" their backs. At the time we had 2 dogs that were bigger than those goats so he wasn't scared which was nice.

I remembered you telling me about the bathrooms at Rafiki's -- you were right -- very funny!

Liam is too cute with brushing the goats! I am glad he got comfortable enough to do that!

Liam was so cute with the goats! I'm glad he enjoyed that part of the trip. I love Jiminy Cricket! Maybe we'll get lucky and catch him when we're there. Gonna have to check out the funny bathrooms...

You know how many times we've been to the Animal Kingdom and never done this? I think I should put it on the list for this year. It looks like Liam had a lot of fun playing around, totally comfortable with the goats.

I remember the Conservation Station! Dh and I had explored this on our honeymoon and thought it was cute. I wanted to bring our girls back there but we just ran out of time

Oh and we did happen to make a pit stop there and the bathroom humor was quite funny! Dh and I got a good laugh out of it!

Just give Liam a few years... He'll start preferring girls in short dresses over a bunch of goats!!

I've never been out to Rafiki's Planet Watch. I have a lot of exploring to do at AK! Liam is adorable with the goats.

That's cute. I love goats! I have to remember this place exists, I think Henry would love it like Liam did. And a train ride to boot!
