You know, I am really glad you posted about this experience with Nemo! My DS will be turning 3 on our October trip, and he loves Nemo. DH and I have not seen the Nemo show since our honeymoon trip in 2007, so I didn't remember about that first scene and how scary it can be for kids! Now I will have that in mind so we can either skip the show again this time and try again when he's older, or have his eyes covered for that part of the show.

The pictures of Noelle with Rafiki are absolutely adorable! I'm glad she could show Parker there was nothing to be afraid of. In that picture of Candi & Parker on the train, you can definitely see where Parker gets his great smile from!

but you are right that lime dessert was very good i do remember that.

Bummer on the long wait for food

Poor Parker getting scared again. It is hard not to get upset as you want the perfect vacation and for everyone to have fun. Every parent makes mistakes and takes awhile to learn not worth getting upset with them. Been There Done That.

Looks like you redeemed yourself in the DINO area. Looks like a lot of fun there
i know rafikis, gets a bad wrap with most people but we love it, alot of the kids to do and see back there.

we did have fun in the dino area, but didnt play really long as we had to keep on schedule to get the kids to see everything there, one thing i hate trying to schedule that day around all the different show times and trying to get everything in.

but i think it worked out good for us that day and we did do everything we wanted.

i agree with you there, you sometimes need to learn along with them.

and just hope you dont repeat that to many times.

thinking back if we had distracted him during htat part or let him know it was coming up i think it would have been better, but just the shock of it right away didnt help, no matter how big and bright and happy everything was after that.

if you go to the show good luck in it.

that is a good picture, he Definitely loves trains...

Even big boys love trains. Although I have to admit, that one eventually has me wishing it would hit the gas pedal. Or whatever trains do to speed up.

Wow. Wonder what the issue was there.

so to the dino area it was.
C'mon Parker! Let's ride Dinosaur!

It is all a learning process and do we always get it right as parents, nope, do we sometimes fail, yep, do we crash spectacularly after having a similar situation less than 24 hours earlier. absolutely. just learn to move on and keep trying to get it right.
...and then screw it up again somewhere down the line. That's my experience, anyway.

Great pictures of the safari, Dan. So happy you got the baby elephant (I couldn't get a shot) and that you also got the baby rhino (she/he wasn't out when we were there).

Sorry about the fiasco with Nemo; it's been a few years since we saw it (okay two years I guess) and I don't remember the beginning that well.

I have to get Mark to Rafiki's Planet...we've not been there together since the kids were little (I did go with Mary and the girls last year).

I wonder why it was so crowded at Flame Tree? We've gone and never had much of a wait no matter what time of the day. Mark refuses to eat Florida pizza so Pizzafari is out for us.

I love Noelle's eyes when she is looking at Rafiki.

Great update. I have not been to Rafiki's planet in forever. I almost went on my last trip. I really need to check it out again. The animal interaction looks very cool.

the very first scene is when the big long skinny fish comes and eats the fish eggs...it comes up quick so it can scare a little kid pretty easy. might even scare prehistoric rosie's as well.

it is a slow mover, but riding past the animal pens does help the time to go by.

not sure what the issue in our line some people had special diet orders that were not coming out, others were missing a few items...it was the peak lunch rush but just seemed to be very hectic that afternoon, even for a lunch crowd.

i was reallyhappy with the safari pics this time, the 3 shot action motion burst worked good on the camera to get the moving animal shots.

i think mark would enjoy it back there lots to see and learn about and something new for him.

if he refuses pizza he might like there hot italian sandwich, we always enjoy that at pizzafari.

thanks, i was happy to get that shot in front of the tank, sometimes the unposed ones are way better than the stand there and smile and me ones.


i think the changes are just annoying people, but once i figured it out it is okay.

i changed my settings to have it show the links and now that i created a sub folder and just send all my uploads there it works good...

it is very hands on and interactive, and the CM's love to tell you anything you want to know about the animals

What letters did you get? Mackenzie and I can try and get all the letters for you while we're there.

That's right, Dan. It's the best any parent can do.

we have one more shot coming up this day to see if we can figure out how to work with and solve the whole getting scared on rides event. but that is a story for another chapter and another day.


and sorry for so much time from the last update, i just figured out how to find my pictures onthe new photobucket.(i hate there changes.)
It's not the easiest to use, is it?
Once you figure it out, it's not so bad.

Definitely taking the baby to Rafiki's Planet Watch. I am sure he will like the train ride alone.
