Ahhhhh you got to see Bamboo, aka Mr. DiVine!! He looks like a superhero.

Hmmm, were you being followed, or were you following them at Nemo? My guess is they just knew that you 2 are Disney Royalty and figured they should stay close in case any residual pixie dust happened to fall their way.

You got some wonderful Nemo photos. Just beautiful. Plus... BUBBLES!!! I really enjoyed that show as well.

Awww I love your meet with Pooh and of course especially Tigger. I have never had a bad meet with Tigger. He's always perfection.

And yet another AWWWWWW, how nice of you to help the lady in the scooter. You may think it's a no-brainer, but it's shocking how many people would not offer to help, even in Disney. Good deed done indeed!

Ahahaha, the Charlie's Angels pose. I seem to remember that one at DHS as well. I am putting in a request now to be in a Charlie's Angels pose photo in December!!

Fun update!! Tiggers love to dance!!

Mr. Devine looks so cool. Before Ms. Kathy posted a photo of him, I never knew he existed? I didn't run into Mr. or Ms. Devine on either trip this time.

I love how the puppeteers work their characters in Nemo. And your pictures there turned out wonderful!!!

Isn't it great when you can combine a love of Disney with family visits? Usually HM closes early September to have the overlay in place a few weeks later so you'd have to visit later in September through early January to see the Nightmare Before Christmas. I love your Christmaween term.

Thanks again for commenting and I wish you the best for your Disney run event in a couple weeks!
I know. I have to time my visits better. I think it will be down RIGHT before I get back in January for the Tinkerbell half!

Thank you! I am going to need it! I am three weeks off a really back back spasm, so my goal is to finish instead of beating my PR.

I love monkey men in tights too! But I've never seen Nemo (for shame!) so I'd have to choose that show next time too. I love your Tigger pictures Brenda. He is always so much fun! They must choose some really energetic CMs for Tigger. I had no idea there was a Mr. Devine. Cool!

AKL is gorgeous! So, so pretty!

You were so kind to help the lady with the scooter, I am sure most people wouldn't have. Your park pics of AK were Devine (corny, I know) and I loved the pics with Pooh ad your Man dancing. CUTE shirt for Em. We don't hang out at AK much because it isn't conducive to W/C or people with heat intolerance but I LOVE FOTLK!! ABSOLUTELY brilliant!

Love the of you and Em by the back of the Tree of Life. And you look so adorably happy in the pics with Tigger! The PP photographer caught some great candid shots!

I didn't even know there was a Mr. Devine, learn something new everyday.

Finding Nemo is just fantastic. You took some great photos.

Your Tigger meet and greet is adorable! He just looks so excited to see you.

How nice of you to help the lady in the scooter. I can imagine with the heat it would have been very difficult for her to pull herself up. Brenda Disney to the rescue!

So excited you were able to rebook your cruise! Hmm... 20% off with an AP, now you're putting all sorts of ideas in my head. We were already tossing around the idea of an October '14 trip, so an AP would come in handy.

Brenda, as usual another awesome report on your days activities...

1. Perhaps the tree guy doesn't take a potty break, instead he may be wearing Depends.

2. I also like the Nemo show but I agree with you the FotLK is much better. And I should also add that what an excellent job with the photo's; I can't get mine to look that good in low light.

3. As for monkey men in tights; I can pass on it.

4. I love your pictures with Tigger. I'm not too crazy about Winnie the Pooh either, but next to Goofy, Tigger is simply "ridickerous."

5. What an awesome thing to do in helping that poor woman with the scooter. Very few people in our day and age will take the few moments out of their day to assist another person in need. What goes around comes around, and I see a good favor being returned to you.

6. After being very hesitant in booking the AKL CL for our trip in June 2014, you have me really looking forward to this visit with your review.

Brenda, what a wonderful update.

I'm so glad you got to see Bamboo too. I, too, have often wondered what they do if they have to go to the bio break room.

Great pictures at the Nemo show. You have stalkers? Really? Who would have thought.

Tigger must have run over from AK and dancing with you to Epcot to dance with me.

Emily is quiet and soft-spoken, but also a charming girl and quite beautiful too.

And the photopass pictures at the end of the day show that smiling face of hers as opposed to her morning pictures.

Breakfast buffets always put me in a food coma.... There is always something sugary and delish that beckons me to eat it!! You saw Bamboo! Maybe if they called him Mr DaVine he would have stayed around - I think he has been discontinued...

I love the fact you helped the woman in the ECV. I think it's a great thing you did and shows what a big heart you have!

Ooo a DVC/AP discount on a illuminations cruise? Hmmm now you have me thinking!!

This worked out well since our APs expired last week so we had to renew anyway. I can now justify at least one or two more Dis trips next year since the urge to book another Disney trip immediately set in once we had those in our hands.
Well since you HAD to renew, you might HAVE to meet me there in April!

What a fun meet, it looks like you had a great day!!!

Following our Tusker House breakfast we wanted to catch a show – we weren’t picky; however, I did prefer to see FotLK. Monkey men in tights somehow gets my attention.

I love me some Nemo to but there is just SOMETHING about those tumble monkeys isn't there!

I didn't know he existed. How cool is that!

Very nice that you were able to reschedule the cruise. I am cracking up at the "secret" of your dress. Love the Tigger tango, Em's shirt, beating the rain but most importantly , the scooter push.

Tigger is one of my very favorite Disney characters. Your dancing photos with him are so much fun.

I read on Allears that Bamboo just debuted in August. Leave it to you to run across him so soon. We saw DeVine in December 2010 but haven't been fortunate enough to see her any other times.
