Love all the Animal Kingdom pics, especially the carvings on the Tree. I don't think I've seen such close up ones before! Liam was so cute with the goats!!

Thanks so much for that tidbit about Luxo Jr. I am definitely going to have to look for him in September.

It seems to me like this Animal Kingdom day was a really good one for Liam. Am I right? It just seems like it's been one of the nicest days for you all. And every time I see photos of the Tree of Life, I am always amazed at the incredible amount of thought and detail that was put into it. I'm going to have to find that trail you mentioned.

I wonder if they are the same as the ones at Casey's? Henry GOBBLES them. And me too! Were they deep fried?


I love those Discovery Island Trails! We wandered around on them in November and got so many beautiful pictures. We didn't get the detail on the Tree of Life that you did though-wonderful pictures! That is such an amazing piece of artwork.

From allearsnet:
Luxo Jr., the lamp that hops around the Pixar logo before every theatrical release of the company, is making appearances on Pixar Place in Disney's Hollywood Studios. The Audio-Animatronics version of Luxo Jr. recently debuted across from the Toy Story Midway Mania! attraction, popping up unexpectedly in a second-story window in the Lighting Company building. During the day, you may catch Luxo Jr. dancing to the beat of country, disco and Disney tunes. At night, he "conducts" the colored lights in the trees of Pixar Place. Appearance times aren't advertised, but as weather permits, Luxo Jr. hops from behind a shuttered window every 15 minutes.
Very cool! I'll for him in September.

Hi Heidi!!! Congrats on the new baby!

I'm going back to read and catch up

The past year has been very hectic. But I'm glad to finally have time to come back to my obsession!

How are you?

I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

that half panda half ant eater thing is going to give me nightmares!

it's good that someone enjoys the bats. I've always thought they were creepy and now Hunter won't go near them in a zoo either...A couple of months ago we went to the portland zoo and stoped look at the bat cave...there should have been some sort of warning because mating season was in full swing!!! The sight of 100 mating bats is scarred into my brain. As soon as Hunter figured out what was going on he nearly died.

I had never noticed the lack of underwear on bats untill that trip. there was one flaunting all he had and it looked like he was the proud owner of 2 large purple grapes. My sister took a picture of it because she couldn't believe it...i'd post it but I don't want to get banned for bat porn.

Next stop........



I actually find this piece of "art" to be ugly so I don't know why I took a picture of it, much less why I am now showing it to you


Now the next few pictures will amaze you!

Could it be? Liam is actually happily waiting in a ride line?



For Tricera Top Spin.


He sat with me and didn't mind the ride that much. I think in part because in was outside and not dark. And the fact the he was so little he really couldn't see much but the inside of our little dino-mobile.



After our ride we (or maybe it was just me) played some games. Here's Liam with my winning prize. I love Love LOVE the game where you roll the ball up the ramp and into the little holes. I have to play that game everywhere that I find one. Anyone that is in Dino-land on October 2, 2009....I challange you to a match!

Where are they now?

Now that Native NYer (Jen) has resurfaced, it got me thinking.

What ever happend to the DISer who had 2 Goldens and one of the dogs died on the way to Disney? Last I remember she was writing a mini TR about Vegas.

And what happend to the young Mom DISer that was doing the great 'She said, He said' report? Last I remember on that one, "He" had left "She" and the kids. Reminds me of that D-bag Jon Gosselin.

And then there was that fun girl JiminySomethingorother....but that was ages ago....that was a Hoot of a PTR.

Plus there are a few LapuLapuettes that are MIA....the writer with the dead bird. And the gamer who is getting married any day now.

Are they still here on the DIS can are just in different threads than me?

Liam looks less than enthused about your stuffed animal winnings!


Jiri was the one with the dead bird. Willwriteforears. I think. I emailed her back in January...she was doing well. Very busy with her writing.

Princesskeyblade, the one getting married this fall. I haven't seen her at all. I wonder what happened with her.

You took a picture of the ugly dinosaur so that you could show us just how ugly it was and how sometimes Disney doesn't do something perfectly!

You and Connor would get along well in Dinoland -- he loves the games, too.

I don't know what happened to all those DISers -- it's sad when they leave and never come back.

My DH found a video feed on some site that shows him coming out and doing his thing....It is beyond COOL!

I'm not sure if I can post the link here...but pm me and I can do it that way!
