I bet everyone has this type of person in their "name-drawing" circle. I always get this person. And it's always a guy.

Love these pics. Glad there were no pictures of snakes. I hate snakes and other things that crawl in the night. I know I've said that before but I really do. Except Mickey and Minnie. No other ones. If you get my drift. You will have to see if Hunter can find Mickey contacts. Then his eyes could match. I couldn't see them till you did the close up.

We will see if John makes it over won't we?

I have been busy today working. Darn it anyway. Not liking it one bit.

Great update.

I don't blame you, I wouldn't have made Hunter move to let the other children who were almost as tall as he was in front. That wouldn't have been fair. And then to have them misbehave like that. Seems they may take after their mother, no manners. . (sorry, I shouldn't have said that! )

Cute picture of Hunter in the alligator's mouth and I adore the hidden Mickeys.

They were all wearing microphones and were right next to the glass! It was so cool! Of course the lion was out cold! It was the closest I have ever been to a lion! It was amazing!!! The things we get to experience in WDW!!! That is why we love it SO much & keep going back!!!! Can't wait to read more!
Oh my gosh, I would have loved being there for the lion. You are so lucky!

The little things like Hunter getting chosen for the streetmosphere show, Hunter's joke getting picked at The Laugh Floor, castmembers giving us free ice cream for our anniversary, are what make Disney so special to us. Never mind the fact that Hunter took his first five consecutive steps in the Magic Kingdom. I love Disney!!!!

I didn't take pictures of the snakes 'cause I'm scared to death of them too. If they made hidden Mickey contacts, Hunter would be all over them. Heck, I would be too!

Looking forward to seeing the picture of Alex and Blue Bottom Boy.

John finally makes it over later in the day. Maybe in the next installment.

I know what you mean about being busy at work. I get stuff off my desk and it just gets put right back on. What's up with that?

Love all the hidden Mickey pictures-- The one with Hunter in the alligator's mouth--too cute!!! Now, why don't I ever think of taking pictures like that.

We didn't spend too much time at Conservation Station because of the snakes, and DS's fear of them. I would have enjoyed spending a little more time there..oh well.

Glad you didn't make Hunter move for those other kids, especially if they were his size anyway....What was the mother thinking???

I could see why it'd be hard to step down from a deluxe to a moderate. But, still you didn't have a bad experience at the CBR.

I love the pictures from AK - I think you might have put Conservation Station on our list!! Just the possibility of seeing something like that sounds cool. My grandfather was a veterinarian and would take in animals that he knew he could save but the owners couldn't or wouldn't pay for. So he had quite the menagerie when I knew him when he was little. He often wasn't that great to the humans in his life, but he was very good at what he did for a living!

traveling w/a tot was soooooo much different and my GF's son was so bad that when we left the mural we parted ways for about 30 min

great pics, I'm proud of you for telling that mom no---some people have all the nerve
like the lady who cut in front of Danny to get into Toontown at the rope drop
she deserved the stroller push --haha!

Hunter loves to pose for pictures and didn't care who was watching him when he put his pictures in the alligator's mouth. His favorite is the one where he's screaming.

There were other hidden Mickeys in the mural but these are all I got pictures of. Some of the other people were looking at us like we were crazy for taking pictures of the wall. They weren't seeing the hidden Mickeys at all.

I didn't feel one ounce of badness when I told the mother that Hunter wasn't moving back for her kids. Like I said, if they were small kids that he could have seen over their heads, maybe. But, no uh-uh, he wasn't moving for kids just as big as he was.

If you are the slightest bit interested in the "behind the scenes" kind of animal stuff, then you need to go over to Conservation even if it's just once.

Oh girl! You've gotta go back to Rafiki's Planet Watch and look at the mural. The pictures I took are just a sampling of the hidden Mickeys. There are more.

There is no way I would have the nerve to ask somebody to let Hunter stand in front of them if he was, basically, the same size as the kids I'm asking to move. Just no way!

I have cute pictures of Ashton in front of the mural!!

Girl, I couldn't even ask for Ashton who is 36" tall! just could not do it... I would expect someone to look at me like I was crazy for askingthat is like the lady who walked in front of Danny at the rope drop; just because a person leaves a 6" space does not give an invitiation to walk in front of someone: Danny had said I was leaving room for the CM's to move the rope, I was trying to be considerate --

LOVE all of the Hidden Mickey pictures. I really didn't know those were there. We will definitely be looking for them this time. I don't think we made it to Conservation Station last time (though I know I've been before...I don't think Christian has).

That was just rude for that lady to ask for Hunter to move back. Does she think he's not a kid too?

Looking forward to seeing John in the pictures!

As soon as you walk in the door you'll see hidden Mickeys! I thought that the lady had some giant balls to ask me if Hunter would love. But, I thought I had even bigger ones because I said no!

John makes an appearance soon.

Oh my goodness there are so many hidden Mickeys in the mural. Hunter absolutely loves looking for hidden Mickeys.
