Let me know if you have any trouble.

Sorry it took me so long to respond...Life got pretty busy for awhile there.

I think your ballet photos turned out very nice. Your daughter looks beautiful, and like a very talented dancer!! Seems like she had quite a few costumes, too. And did I see different colored pointe shoes? Did you have to dye a pair of pointe shoes? My daughter had to do that for one number...they dyed an older pair. Dang, those things are expensive, aren't they?

Anyway, great job!

Thank you. She really enjoys dance. She had 5 costume changes, and yes, 2 different pointe shoes. We used the spray fabric paint to dye the shoes (never supposed to dip dye pointe shoes as it damages the box). We used her older pair to dye. She goes through a pair of pointe shoes about every 6 weeks during a regular dance season (when there are no special performances approaching). The cost is crazy. I thought, when she made the decision to choose between dance or gymnastics, she chose the lesser of the two expensive options. Not so sure anymore!

All caught up.
Having a break from the parks is a great idea.
That line for the Jungle Cruise is crazy.
The dining did not sound like fun at Epcot and too bad about the camera situation.
OMG! The line for the bus is crazy.
I love Yak & Yeti.
Fantastic lion photos. I have yet to see them awake. Okay all the anima photos are great.
Great Fantasmic photos.
Nice souvenirs you got for the family.
Sad it is over.

Yeah, I thought so too.

Well, to be fair, the hot dog thing was my own fault. I think I've been raised on "UN-authentic" hot dogs, because several others I've talked to think the ones in Germany are fantastic. And at least with the camera, it was only one evening's worth of photos lost...and a I did learn a valuable lesson (Gee, I sound like Mr. Brady!) about making sure you double-check your settings.

I know! I couldn't believe. I'm so glad we were on a long vacation, and could 'punt,' because if I had to endure those lines all day...I'd had gone crazy!

I'm so glad to hear that. That is the #1 restaurant I want to try on our next visit.

Thank you. Kilimanjaro Safari is my very favorite attraction. I lost count how many times we went on it.

Thank you! I was kind of surprised they turned out because I...GASP!...left my camera on "Auto." I didn't feel confident enough as a new DSLR user to manually choose the settings myself, and I knew I only had one shot this trip.

I miss Disney so bad already. A 2-week+ vacation, and I still miss it very much. Can't wait for the next one!!


Thanks for reading my trip report, and all the kind comments.
