I don't know what to tell you. It's kind of creepy.

You got some really great shots of the gorillas too.
I knew that you had a thing for giraffes, but I didn't know that Mark liked elephants. It was a good safari trip for the elephant aficionado.

Thanks. It is a little hard to get different pictures on this attraction after you've been on it a few times.

Well, you've got a good memory, so we can't both have forgotten them!

I agree with you.

Oops, the part 1 just referred to the fact that I was going to use two posts for that chapter. I decided against it when I got to the second post, but forgot to change the first one back. Oh well.

This from the guy who stalked Mark's thread for days on end to try and capture a Movie Quote title???

Actually, once again pure luck. Had a safety meeting at work that went through lunch. It was supposed to be over at noon and ran over until 12:30. For some reason I decided to log on the DIS before warming up my lunch when I saw you had updated. It had already been up almost 10 minutes so I figured by the time I could check it and post there was no way I would be first........

My meeting ends on time I'm probably done with lunch and logged off by the time you posted and never see it nearly in time. Not my fault everyone else was SLOW!!!

Thanks for spending your lunchhour on the DIS for us. Unfortunately life is tooo busy right now...

The cheetah was always there (means when I went to WDW for the first time), but usually they were hiding behind some bushes or lying complete flat on the top their hill.

I'm back - thanks for waiting for me! We made another move to Texas and life will be good here with our grandbabies!
Nice update! I think that gorilla WAS giving you the stinkeye. Good idea for lunch - It's good you could find an empty table.

A lion's hiney is more or a moving lion picture than I have ever gotten on the safari. They are alway laying around when we go.

I have also never seen an elephant cooling themselves off.

Sounds like a very successful safari.

I love it when you get an entertaining attraction driver! It definitely adds some extra flavor to a ride you've done before.

I absolutely agree about the safari rides producing blurry pictures. I know they can't stop all the time, but it's a shame to be <thisclose> to an animal and only wind up with a blur of a photo. Despite that, you took a lot of great animal photos! I love the detail photos you took of the African buildings, too!

We had a funny Safari driver once too, I loved it! It was a nice change from the typical script.

We also had a few drivers that would stop completely - but I think they only do this when the park isn't too busy. I'll test my theory in a couple weeks during spring break.

LOVE the picture of the elephant spraying himself! What a cool moment.

I have to echo other people's comments. I have never seen the elephants in the water like that. Great shots.

I have finally caught up on the report, though I have given up trying to catch up on the banter.

It was nice being able to sit down and read 6 updates at once.

Great job on the night photos and the safari pics! (Nothing like bulb shots and hyper zoom.)

Enjoying living vicariously through your TR. (And trying to think the painful fact that at one point in time, we talked about meeting up at YB's show your first night.) On that note, won't be doing WDW this summer, but looking at another option....
