With your aversion to birds, I bet it's hard to find a cs restraunt in AK where you aren't swarmed by them!

The pizza does look good, even though it is not quite 3 a.m. as I write. I love the Pizzafari decor, also. So bright and unique. Lots of things to take pictures of.

I noticed the little girl in the front of Dinosaur, too. She's refusing to look at the Dinosaur.

I enjoy this ride, but in March, we got stuck on it at a part where the car was just shaking up and down. We were stuck for about ten minutes, and it never did stop jostling. It stopped on the track, but then continued to shake us up and down and 'round and 'round. It was fun for the first minute, but it got to be not so fun after a while. There was no escape, because we were belted in. We heard that someone's backpack flew out and it stopped the ride. Later on, coincidentally, we were on the bus with the guy who lost the backpack.

Your pictures are good. Keep 'em coming!

goodbye everest......we'll see you this afternoon!

after that we headed into dinoland. i was itching to RIDE something. the only thing we'd done so far was a show, a trail and wait in line for the safari! so we hopped on primeval whirl which was a 15-minute wait.

i love spinning......and giggling.....and spinning......and giggling.....

I love this one, too! It makes me giggle.

now it was time to go back into time to catch a dinosaur! look who we saw on the way over......some old dear friends!

see ya later this week, guys!

i think the wait for dinosaur was like 20 minutes, so we hopped in line.

Maybe they found this guy in the stand-by line for EE

i love this ride. that silly dinosaur ALWAYS scares me even though i know he's gonna be there!!!

The lady in the front is trying to climb out!

well, that's all i have time for right now. not a long update, i know, but i wanted to give you guys a little something!

up next......the flat people come out of hiding and WHAT IS SHE WEARING???
Thanks for the update -

Mmm...those breadsticks look tasty....I, too, have some pix from Pizzafari coming up much later in my TR.....

It seems that AK was busy.......

Technical difficulties on KS? Hmmm....maybe those animals aren't real after all......

I love Primeval Hurl....I love the "action" picture from that ride...

I went to AK 3x my last trip and didn't hit It's Tough to Be a Bug OR Dinosaur......

Can't wait to hear more......

The safari was down? Never heard of such a thing!

I love your fake scream in the Dinosaur picture. You MUST fake scream on Dinosaur...especially for the picture! What does Donny Osmond think he's doing in the front row there SMILING at the carnotar?

And if you love spinning....I hear the new Toy Story ride spins. Which is a bummer....for me. Because spinning makes me sick at my stomach.

RE: Sunday crowds.....we had this problem last September! Unbelievable. I will not likely do AK on a Sunday again.

Loving all the pictures! Thank you!

Anyway - Dawn love the update and pictures. I have not done Dinosaur but that's a must on the next trip. Our kids were little and I didn't want to a baby swap and go on something myself. I enjoy being with DH so to go on a ride by myself I wouldn't really feel comfortable. The boys will be 10 and 8 when we go next so it's a go. That pizza looks yummy. We ate pizza at Pizza Planet but that looks a lot better to me and oh breadsticks, me love breadsteaks. I waited for Peter Pan's flight before I knew what a fast pass was for 90 minutes carrying a sleeping 2 1/2 year old. We were sweating, we went in June and I was like he's going on this ride sleeping. He literally woke up as I sat down in the pirate ship.
