Ummmm.

I hate to ask, but what is that between his legs?!



Maybe it's a bit deceiving, and it's actually his tail, behind his legs? Or his arms, in front of his legs!?

Ummmmm!!

Anyway, fun update!!

Love the pictures from Pizzafari, looks like a cute place to eat. Very colorful. I just love the variety at AK. We like PW too, that is such a cute picture.

awesome! it's so nice to "meet" you! it's true with me, too - i hardly ever meet any other court reporters. i guess that's because they usually only need one of us! it's nice to know we're a rare species! thanks for joining in!

oh, you'll love it! just keep in mind that it always seems more crowded there because the paths are narrower. and it's ALWAYS 10 degrees warmer because of all the vegetation. but other than that, it's GREAT!

pizzafari - it's indoor and air-conditioned! i ate at flame tree back in september and erin and i got in a fight because she kept feeding the ducks!

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!
check out the little girl behind me - she looks so scared! and getting stuck on dinosaur....not so fun! kinda like when ray and i got stuck on the great movie ride last year - that's why i can't stand that right now. it was during the casablanca scene. although it was kinda funny because ingrid bergman looks drunk.

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......
yes, AK was busy. the mojo was definitely lacking that day. about KS breaking down, someone in line said that they heard that a herd of wildabeasts were crossing the trail and they had to stop all the vehicles because of it.

Love the Dinosaur ride pic - the little girl in front is hirlarious!
i like the little girl behind us, too......so scared! stay tuned about the EE FP!

i've never eaten at toy story pizza planet but i bet it's very similar. they also had an italian sandwich that looked good at pizzafari, but the pizza and breadsticks was enough for us.

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.
yes, i remember! you just let me know when you're ready for me to start planning!

you'll like dinosaur - it's kinda scary but in a fun kind of way. it's hard to remember that those dinosaurs aren't real! wow.....your peter pan story is scary! thank goodness for the dis, huh?

don't get used to it!!! once work kicks back in full swing the updates will slow down. i did have to work this week, but it was a criminal jury trial and i didn't have much typing. but once the typing starts piling up, i'll have to readjust my priorities......a little.

Lesley
thanks! i told ray what you said about "go with the flow" and he couldn't believe it because he thinks i'm a disney nazi! you guys need to do primeval whirl. i bet the kids would love it (if they're tall enough)! it just makes me giggle.

that's a good question! i asked ray and he said something that i can't repeat here, so i won't. i just googled it and i found this link. it looks like it's some sort of pelvic bone, maybe? kinda scary anyway!

hmmmmmm......i'm not sure! you really can't start planning though until 6 months out because that's when they release the park hours. i'm serious - you just let me know and i'll be happy to help! i have to get rid of my disney OCD somehow!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL YOU MOMMIES OUT THERE!!!

------------------------------------------------------

something i forgot to mention to you guys.....ray decided that he was gonna start a pin collection this trip by getting a pin at every park. here's the one he got at AK earlier that day. as memom knows, it's almost impossible to get a clear picture of a pin. so this is the best i could do.



does anyone know why they have a dragon on this pin? i don't recall seeing any dragons at AK. oh, well.

back to the TR.......

when i last wrote i believe ray and i had just taken a trip back in time to catch a dinosaur. we decided to do the marahajah jungle trek next. we walked back by EE on the way to check the wait time. i think it was around 50 minutes at that point. still a no go - not when i have a fast pass in my pocket!



we bypassed kali river rapids this time. it wasn't too hot and i HATE walking around wet unless it's just scorching outside. oh, and you know what we never saw this time? those loud monkeys near kali. they were going crazy last year. we saw them this year but they weren't making any noise or acting crazy at all.

ohhhhhhhhhh.......bamboo! i just thought this looked cool for some odd reason.



okay....so first came this thing. i can't remember the name of it! last year it was up and walking around, but this time it pretty much snoozed the whole time we were there.



next were the bats. now, i have to warn you before you view the picture below. I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GONNA SAY. please don't get my TR banned by any inappropriate comments. i posted this pic because it shows what i saw on my trip and i wanted to share it with my readers. i just wanted to point out the obvious so it doesn't become an issue that gets someone points due to a picture on my TR. believe me......everyone there saw what you're seeing and commented on it.



okay.....now that you've had your bat anatomy lesson for the day.....onward we go.

the tigers were also being very elusive that day. i only got a couple of good shots of them.

i think he's waiting for his food! lunch time!!!!!








then we saw these deer-looking things.



this was my view this entire day: ray with his video camera. the boy loves to film!



i thought this was pretty (minus the vols hat worn by my hubby)......



wasn't there a good-looking asian guy and his tongue on this not too long ago?????
