Heidi!!!

so awesome about your solo Disney trip...I wish I could be part of that party, but it will be fun to hear all about it when you get back. Kinda fun to do the last minute, book, flights ADR thing huh?

reminds me of our trip in March.


Back to your TR>>>>

I knew you were going here next!

glad for the most part Liam enjoyed himself, that is so cute how he liked the Petting farm and goats.

great picture of the hidden mickey and I will have to visit the restrooms here on the next trip to find out what is so funny!

as always looking forward to more!

My plan is to get a Fastpass for TSM and then go in the regular line.....I so want to see Mr. Potatoe Head.

Kathy
I'm sorry I'll be missing you too....but I don't want to leave the kids for Halloween and I have no desire to be there for Jersey Week based on the UG crowd levels.

We weren't in a rush so he took his time getting comfortable.

I think it was the 7 foot Goofy the first night that killed it for him

I think Jiminy Cricket is a regular there now.

We were there for quite some time....what was nice too was that he was able to walk around on his own- out of the stroller. With a toddler you have to jump on those times when they are available.

I think the whole area out there is great for toddlers and pre-schoolers.

It's a nice break from the heat and the crowds at AK if you need one.

It does take a bit of time to get out there and come back but I've never had to wait more then a few minutes for the train.

Hopefully he doesn't try to brush their hair !

And it's nice that the goats can get away from the kids if they want to.

Henry would love it there....you'll need to plan for it next trip. It's a great place for little ones to get out of the stroller and burn some energy.

I can see a solo trip in your future. I'm finding booking at the 90 or so day mark a lot less stressful.

Our next stop was the Maharajah Jungle Trek....we had just missed the start of the Bird show which was too bad because I thought Liam would have been ok with that.

Here are some pictures from our walk from Africa to Asia.







This is one of the boat docks from the old river boat attraction....from what I've read it didn't last long.



There is some seating there so look for this sign on the main walk-way if you want to check it out.



I don't know the name of this animal but it looks to be 1/2 Panda Bear 1/2 Ant Eater!


[Danica needs to be fed so I will continue later.]

that would be cool....but most of my kids are too aware for me to sneek away to Disney w/out them. But I am so looking forward to our 15 yr anni trip in 2011! Someday I'd love to do a girls Dismeet trip like you, how fun! Though I don't know if am as cool as you to advneture out on my own....

yes the planning of an under 90 trip seems like it would be crazy, but I think it was less stressful too....

Congratulations on your trip. I hope you have a great time. I love the pictures of Liam brushing the goats. We have never been to that part of AK before.

Back to our trek....the Maharajah Jungle Trek....



I love the bats....I think their wings are the coolest thing....






Viewing the Tigers is the only time I had an issue with other guests being rude and hogging the windows and cutting in front of me. And they were pulling that 'I don't speak English BS'. I hope a Dirty Bird pooped on them...you know Karma and all.






I guess we all take a picture of this....don't we Jackie?




Hidden Mickey alert....actually this one is really easy




I so wanted to take this for a spin around the block.


More Dirty Birds. (If you have no idea why I keep refering to Dirty Birds then you must read KathyRN's November 2007 TR, the Dirty Bird story is pee your pants funny!)



I think my Robins would love this house.




DH loved how this vine attaches itself to the tree.


Time for lunch.....up next

Traveling solo is made that much easier by going to someplace that I know so well.

Danica is wonderful....2 months old now....smiling and cooing and doing really well with holding her head up and such.

Wonderful update, thank you! I find it totally amusing that you and Jackie managed to post virtually the same photo. And I get to read about bats twice this week, go figure.

I'm loving all these Animal Kingdom pictures.

Hi Heidi!! Just read your update from Conservation Station... it brought back some bad memories for me... I'm glad Liam did flip out with the goats because we had some BAD goat experiences with Alex. The first time was when he was a toddler and we went into a little goat petting zoo - he was really scared - I just assumed it was because they were bigger than him. He is still scared to death of them - and all animals for that matter. When we went on a field trip in Kindergarten, he said he wanted to go into the goat area, but he ended up trying to climb up on my shoulders! We won't be visiting any goats anytime soon!

Now on to your next update!

That must be hard having a child who is scared of animals. Liam isn't at all. I think it really helps that we had 2 big dogs since his birth (we currently only have one and Liam has started to really play with him and feed him dog food by the handful! ugh!)

Good luck with that. You don't like the bats (which you can by-pass by the way) and Alex is afraid of animals; that should be an interesting walk.
