I had no idea there was a Mr. Divine! That is so cool!! I am with you...we really need to explore AK a lot more.

Nemo is so fun. Those puppets & actors are so darned talented.

Oh my goodness you got to dance with Tigger!! How adorable & memorable! Tigger really is a fun character to meet. Pluto too. What is it about them?

I'm so glad you helped that lady. I would have felt horrible leaving here there too. I hope help came quickly for her!

That minnie shirt is super cute. Is there anything better than Minnie with rhinestones? I think not! I'm always on a mission for cute Minnie & Snow White tees. I need to borrow you guys for a disney shopping trip.

Lightbulb Spoiler Alert regarding Bamboo

This is from wdwmagic, posted on August 9, 2013:
A new living statue act is coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom next week.
Opening August 14, 'Bamboo' will appear in Africa at 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 2:30pm. Fans of the DiVine will continue to find her in the Oasis. The Allears article said they appear for 20 minutes at a time. With hourly 20 minute appearances, well, we can do the math regarding bio breaks...

In another publication they are referred to as cousins. I still like Brenda's Mr. DiVine.

How great that you saw Bamboo, he looks pretty cool!

Loving the dancing with Tigger photos, very cute and how nice of you to help the lady on the scooter

I'm glad you were able to rebook the fireworks cruise although it meant that you had to miss 'Ohana and the Ukelele Gal lol
Thank you Monica! Tigger was a lot of fun and quite the dancer!

Yeah, giving up 'Ohana was fine in the end but I do miss the potstickers and bread pudding.

I have to admit if given the choice between the memo show or fotlk I would choose fotlk every time! I just adore that show. It may even be my favorite stage show at WDW.

Glad you managed to make it to the bus before it rained that time. Did you just run right by the survey people?

Sent from my iPad using DISBoards
Thanks Jill! They used to have Eeyore down there so I'm not sure what happened. But at least they had bouncy Tigger!

I agree with you about FotLK! Fabulous show and the music is so good.

Ha ha! We didn't see the survey people so that worked out well for us.

Loved your meet n' greet with Tigger - how fun!

Awesome - no surveys means no rain for you! And I am super happy you were able to rebook your fireworks cruise - that's awesome!

D~
Hi D~! I picture you seeing the Nemo show with a Dory park bag or something equally adorable! Keep that at the top of your list - you won't be disappointed.

Thanks, Tigger was in a dancing mood.

I'm glad we were able to re-book the cruise as well. I was hoping that would work out since we already had that on our Must Do list!

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!!
hi Rob! Ahhh Bamboo! I didn't know who he was but I knew he must be related to DiVine or whatever her name is. Doesn't that mask make him look like the lone ranger or something. Perhaps the Foliage Ranger is an apt title!

Seriously, bubbles are fun at any age!

Ha ha! Yes, our original Charlie's Angels pose from 2011:

Obviously we are missing the 3rd angel so you can be Kate Jackson! I have dibs on Jacqueline Smith!

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!!!
This was a first time we had seen either Mr. or Mrs. Devine so it was pretty fascinating.

I agree, those puppet/actors do such a great job! thanks - just lucky with good photos sometimes!

Hi Woth! I think they take down the Christmas decorations around the 2nd week of January. Not sure if I remember that right. Definitely rest your back! With any of the Disney runs I can't imagine going for time since I'd want to stop and have a photo with the characters. It would take a lot more training than I put into running now but I would love to do the 1/2 some day. Right now if I finish a 10K I'm doing good.

AKL is gorgeous! So, so pretty!
Hi Kelli! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks those money dudes steal the show. Put that Nemo show on your must-do list girl!

Thanks! Tigger didn't disappoint! I agree, they must make the Tigger CMs really be enthusiastic. You can't have a calm Tigger - it just doesn't work.

Mr. Devine was new to us too.

Hi Judy!! Thanks for the kind comment.

Ha ha!! that's great!

Honestly we spend less time at AK park than any other but I'm discovering more so now I see that we'll likely spend more time there but I agree that for some reason it just seems hotter and more humid! (all those plants and foliage I suppose??)

It was very nice to see you stopping by here!! Enjoy your weekend sweet lady!

Hi Janeen! Thank you so much for joining along and reading! I'm glad you read the March TR as well. That was special for a whole other reason. The castle suite is day 8 and I'm on what day 4... getting there.

Hi Kylie! That area behind ToL was definitely a great place to hang out with Mr. Devine (Bamboo) and it was definitely cooler back there.

Thanks, the interaction with Tigger was so much fun.

Coming back form more responses later!

I love the weekend! I have a house full of teens/young adults. They were outside with at the fire pit, roasting weenies, marshmallows and mores...now they have invaded my downstairs...I love to hear their exuberance and wonder where MY energy went.

I would love to like AK more, not sure I ever will. With all of the foliage, etc there isn't' a lot of shade where we need it and very few A/C spots. Lisa can't do a lot of rides there either.

I will be by more, I hope. I read more than I type sometimes.

I got so excited when I saw you updated yesterday... but when you said you left Tusker House I was like huh? I missed an update argh! I'm always behind.

I love all the DIS meets, that's so cool! I've never met another DISer. I keep hoping that one of our future trips will overlap someone elses. I also love all the pictures you include from DL. It makes me SO excited to go there someday (under 4 years to go, not that I'm counting or anything...)

I love the dress you wore to AK. So appropriate! I don't think I've ever took a picture of that sign or in front of it.

So cool that you could meet up at Tusker House with another DISer with overlapping reservations. The Chicago Disney swag is so cool and very thoughtful!

We have never eaten at Tusker House before but it's definitely on our Disney bucket list. Safari Mickey is too cute! The inside looks really cool.

Haha I think of things like that! I call it the downside of being a grown up at Disney. I think about all the little details like that.

The Finding Nemo show looks really cute. We somehow STILL have not seen FOTLK or FNTM. Maybe next trip Gavin will be old enough to sit still. At 9 months old, I really thought things like that would really interest them but he could've cared less (turtle talk with crush and the entire seas pavilion for that matter)

I love the pictures of you and Tigger dancing!

That was very sweet of you to help that woman out, I'm sure she really appreciated it!

I'm glad you were able to make it back before the rain this time!

Wow that's a tough choice, I don't know that I would've been able to say no to O'hana bread pudding... but I bet the cruise will/did more than make up for it!

Off to read your dining review of Tusker House!

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.
Hi Ashley! Mr. Devine/Bamboo was new to us too. I suppose I need to hang out at AK park more often to know what's going on. Next thing you know they will be building another land based on a non-Disney movie!

Thanks, I get lucky with photos sometimes.

When you have APs I must caution you that you justify many things!!

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.
Hi Bob!
Devine depends, hmmm product placement perhaps is in order?

I think I have a Nemo setting on my camera so those photos had to turn out. Or if I didn't lie I'd have to say that I was just lucky!

You can definitely take a pass on the men in tights - rightfully so.

Something tells me your are a Goofy fan. I've not had a bad interaction with Tigger! He had his dancing shoes on for sure.

Do unto others and all, I completely agree with that.

I'm so glad that you are excited about AKL CL. I would love to return and bring my hubby. Maybe in June...

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.
Hi Kathy! See, inquiring minds! He is a bush though so that raises a whole bunch of other questions....

Can we agree that you can't stalk the willing?

I think Tigger likes to dance with the ladies but he was like medicine for your heart when he took you for a spin.

Awww thanks Kathy! A momma always loves to hear that.

Ooo a DVC/AP discount on a illuminations cruise? Hmmm now you have me thinking!!
Hi Sarah! So you don't judge me for eating the Krispy Kreme and the waffles and the cobbler and any other sugary options. Good to know. I think you are right, I couldn't help myself.

Did you not see Mr. Bamboo dude? Bummer if they sent him to the compost heap.

20% off Sarah... keep thinking...

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.
Hi Cynthia! ABSOLUTELY!! I would love to meet up in April... I'll have to find out your dates and coordinate. For SURE!

Now that you've met Kathy in person we can both agree how awesome she is!
I think I need to form a fan club.

Mr. Devine/Bamboo stalking the jungle, I wasn't aware either but now I'll be on the look-out.

Yes, fashion tips for the ladies, shop in the loungewear section for some great deals. If Kathy couldn't tell I was wearing PJs I feel like it is pretty much fashion camouflage!

Thanks!

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.
Hi Kathy! Awwww we are both Tigger lovers!! He was a great dancer.

Thanks for sharing that information regarding Bamboo. For anyone interested, here's the link. I'm glad we were able to catch him while he was still fresh and new.

Hi Jennifer! Before long they'll have a whole new land to explore and then I'll really be behind the exploration curve!

Em noticed new cast members in the Nemo show this time and of course I don't pay that much attention but it made me think there really is a great pool of talent out there.

Don't you think that interactions with fur characters are sometime better than the face characters? They communicate so cleverly without words. I just love them.

I'd welcome a shopping trip with you my friend!

Ahhh a mother's happy heart! I love that! I love those nights that Michael and I are upstairs and Em has friends over and we hear them giggling and carrying on downstairs.

I am truly glad to see you every time you come by. I seriously would love to meet up with you one day. I know there will be a one day eventually....

No worries Melissa! I know mommy time is valuable and time with little Gavin is a commodity.

I think y'all would really enjoy TH someday. Gavin with Safari Mickey would be precious. Definitely there will be more on your Disney list as Gavin gets older. It's hard when they are so little but that will change quickly.

I know, no bread pudding this trip but we did get a cruise out of it!

Monday August 19, 2013: Day 4, Part 3

Back in the room we sat on the balcony and watched the animals being fed. It was pretty fascinating. I just never tire of seeing this view.














While Em took a nap I switched around some dining reservations for the next day and cancelled our Ohana dinner on the last night. So sad!

We had another Dismeet dinner tonight so we cleaned up and grabbed a taxi to the Grand Floridian for our 6:30 reservation at GF Café. We were dining once again with Mr. DDW and his mom. However, the most perfectly timed coincidence occurred when we saw Vicki (GoofySonsmom) and her son Andrew show up!! They happened to change their dinner plans and decided to try for a walk-up at GFC. I quickly changed our dinner party from 4 to 6 and we were able to have dinner all together!








It may not have been the best food and certainly not the best service but I LOVED this dining experience because we were with so many wonderful friends. For all the highs and lows and of this meal you can read my dining review here. Since all of us were participating in the Live Dining thread and submitting our dining reviews we decided to mess with Barb (Jabead, the living dining thread hostess) who didnt know that we were all eating together and decided that the last one to submit their review would reveal that we all dined together. Vicki was first by default since this was her last dinner at WDW. I would go second and Mr. DDW would be responsible for the big reveal. Oh the mischief!!

Dis-group Photos




We called this our cruise ship pose:

And here's why...we have been put in lovey poses before on cruises:

While I'm at it... this was our "bend and snap" pose from our Alaska cruise:

Somebody didn't want her photo to be taken... again!


We closed this place down. Well, almost, there were those people still there.


After saying good-bye to Vicki and Andrew we piled in Mr. DDWs car and headed back to YC/BC. While we were passing the GF bus stop area I noticed that they have TVs with Stacey TV being played. Very cool!


Note: I'm looking forward to seeing Vicki in December as she will be one of the friends that will be getting together for some dining and park fun.

Continued Next Post

Great pictures of Mr. Divine or Bamboo they were almost as good as pictures of the Lion King monkey. I also loved the dancing pictures with Trigger he should be on Dancing with the Stars.

It is great you were able to have another Dismeet at the GF Cafe, plus the added Dis-group pictures.

I am loving the AKL pictures from your balcony. The more I see the more I want to stay at the AKL on my next visit to Disney World.

I just realized we're only on day 4. You have done some much already and you're not even halfway through your trip.

Just love your view. I think I have been on a few safaris before without seeing that many animals.

OMG the bend and snap, works everytime! Oh that is too funny.

It seems like you have quite a few DISmeets coming up in December, can't wait to read all about it.

Oops! We were tag teaming updates/edits!

Thanks! You would not be disappointed if you booked that! I'm sad that my next trip doesn't include a stay there again. Sigh.

Ha ha! I'm pathetically slow, that's for sure. I am trying to simultaneously keep my dining review going as well.

I'm glad you know what the bend and snap is!! I thought I may have to insert a reference to the movie but then if I did it wouldn't matter since they wouldn't know anyway!

December will be mostly Dismeets because of a group of us that are going for some fun together. I'm fortunate to pick up a few more Dismeets from folks outside the dining boards as well. We're definitely blessed to be able to do this.
