You must use two picture hosting sites because I can see some of your pictures.

I just saw a picture of that pink flamingo somewhere and it is SO cute. How could Wingnut put the nix on that. Of course it would be the perfect accompaniment to Planty. I couldn't agree more.

So you REALLY wanted to jump in the cranberry bog? That's all I can say -

I'll stop back later to see more pics.

Oh yeah - the diver in the tube - crazy. I have not see that before.

Blueberry boy is the cutest! Sure, there is corn father and son, but blueberry boy just owns Living with the Land. It cannot be denied.

Hahaha, I would love to see someone doing the I Love Lucy grape (cranberry) stomping! TOO funny.

My daughter Lauren has a venus fly-trap named "Chompy".....they should have a play-date.

It's great to "meet" your parents! (TR-wise, of course)

I think Planty would have loved the flamingo with Mickey ears as a roommate! Hmmm what would you have named him?

Caught up again! It's too bad you don't have a lawn - those flamingoes are so funny! I'd love a palm tree at my house too, but there is no way it would survive here lol That diver giving a demonstration is pretty cool, I've never seen that either! And I can just picture the cranberry bog scene, makes me giggle

Okay, I will share just a coupl wedding pics lol
I love how I have a beach, palm trees, and the GF in my wedding pics lol

I'm just joining in! I discovered your previous trip report when I was searching for people who had traveled to WDW in January in preparation for my upcoming trip. I was hooked after reading your first few posts because your sense of humor is so in line with mine! It was like reading a transcript of one of my own internal monologues!

Can't wait to have some time to catch up on this TR and follow along with the rest of your trip!

I have a confession...I've never noticed Blueberry Boy! I'll have to look for him the next time I ride Living with the Land...for some reason, I feel like I shut my mind off by the end of that ride and am lost in my own thoughts or something!

Haha, we have that flamingo in our yard! I love it, but it got really dull really fast!

I would love to stomp around that cranberry bog for a while. I feel so bad for those guys who have to stand in that all day and answer people's stupid questions about cranberries when all they probably want is some shade and a beer!

(Ok, maybe they love standing out in the heat and talking about cranberries, I just know that after 10 minutes of doing that, I'd be done!)

I love Morocco, it might be my favorite pavilion!

I'm going to guess that EPCOT is your favorite park.
I LOVE the F&W festival, DM and I went last year and YUM! We loved it so much that we cancelled some ADRs to go back and sample more food. When asked why we were cancelling I replied "Because we are headed to EPCOT!" The CM said she totally understood.

When I rode Living with the Land last week, I thought "There's someone on the DIS who loves the Blueberry boy". I couldn't remember who it was but now I know!

Would you believe the line for it was 40 minutes? It stretched all the way back almost to the entrance to Soarin'. We rode Soarin' using fastpasses and by the time we were done, the line had gone down to 20 minutes. I think we waited about 15 to get on. First time I think I've ever waited in line for Living with the Land!
