Your pics of the grounds are beautiful.

Rose and Crown is one of our favourites. Cottage pie is what I usually order as well. Haven't been brave enough to try the Welsh Dragon. How was it????

AK- so fun!

I've never been to the Conservation Station, but it seems like a cool place to visit! Is it really that far from the rest of the park that the train is totally necessary, or just a part of the Disney theming?

One of these days I'll make it to Conservation Station. The goats are awfully cute, and I think it's one of the only (if not the only) place you can meet Rafiki.

Thank you.
it was a really good restaurant. The drink was delicious I really enjoyed it. Not better than a margarita though.
I love AK.

It is different. You can see a surgery (if they still do that) and see Rafiki and lots of snakes and turtles (behind glass) and then you can go pet goats and see the llamas and hogs or pigs. Fun to check it out. The train ride is fun too.

You should try to make it once. It is a fun place to go and see. I believe it is the only place.

The cheetah was up.




Looked ready to attack.


Lioness sleeping. The male was no where to be seen. I have yet to see him up.

We walked out and decided what to do next.

I don't know, I don't think they look anything like you Scott. Haha! Sorry feeling a little silly tonight. LOL!

The baby elephants are so cute! I have a couple pics from my last trip I'll have to try to find. They were playing and rolling on the ground together like puppies.

Hey!

That would be cute. I saw the younger warthogs playing once and they were hysterical.

Update 13

After our safari we decided to see more animals. We took a trail.


Someone was hiding.


Always look above. You never know what will drop on you.




Fish


Nap time. LOL


That was the only gorilla we saw. It did start raining so we stayed in a cave for a few minutes and then proceeded on.

Next we walked over to Asia. It was around noon so we deicded to eat. We went to.


For an appetizer we shared.
Pork Egg Rolls - chili plum dipping sauce $7.99


Our entrees.


Scott:
Kobe Beef Burger - 10 oz grilled American Kobe beef burger, sesame-soy sauce, mayonnaise, crispy shoestring fries. topped with choice of shiitake mushroom & scallion compote or Asian slaw $17.99

Vinny:
Bourbon Chicken - Tempura chicken, carrots, green onions, sweet bourbon sauce $17.99

Both meals were good but I love this burger. The slaw they put on it is so good. It is what I get every time.
Vinny said the chicken was good.

We did get a dessert and I had no adult beverage.

They do not offer a discount for TIW but we did get it for AP or DVC. Can't remember. It was 10% off.

Coming up,

More animals and getting wet

Can I join in on the fun? I've read all of the installments so there's much too much to comment on.

I'll keep it brief:

Congrats on the marriage!

Love the Flower & Garden Festival pictures! I sure wish they'd extend it out until the end of May so I could enjoy it again.

I agree with you....your safari looked amazing! Lots of animals up and about which seems to be rare.

Hum....what else was I going to comment on? Can't remember so I guess I'll just have to wait for the next installment.

Wow...the rhinos were out in full force! Lucky you! The giraffes and ephelants are my favorite! And how cute are the babies?!?!

Too bad you didn't get to see a lot of gorillas...they can be very entertaining!

Ah, Yak & Yeti...your burger looks yummy!

Well of course you can. I actually started reading your tr last night but am only up to the DTD installment. CBR is what attracted to me it.
Thank you.
probably be to busy with Star Wars. It was gorgeous to see. I have another day where there will be lots more.
They really did come up close to the jeep.
Thanks for reading.
