Talking Our first trip home - Day 6

Monday October 15th 2007

This morning we decide AK deserved a visit, arriving just after opening we headed straight to Expedition Everest and I got a FP while we then queued to ride.





After this we made our way to the Safari, stopping briefly on the way to watch the apes making their early morning calls!



The Safari was similar to before, the storyline with the reserve was similar but there was no Little Red! We saw plenty of animals out basking in the early morning sun.









Also for the first time we saw a Lion actually up and moving on the rock!



By now it was getting close to mid morning and we went to see It’s A Bugs Life. This never fails to get a laugh from us at all the unsuspecting people at the end when the bugs leave Then we headed off to EE and noticed it was closed So we got a drink with a packet of crisps before deciding to go and see Legend of the Lion King a thoroughly enjoyable show.













It was getting close to 1pm now so we went to see if EE was running, passing the Yaki and Yeti Restaurant on the way, which looked like work was progressing well.



By now it had got a lot sunnier



As soon as we got to EE it was clear it was working so we used our expired FP and got in the queue. As we were about to head off on our journey on the ‘platform’ I saw Ian and Lynn, from the HaloWishes cruise, waiting for their train! After our ride we waited and soon after Ian and Lynn appeared, we had a quick hello and as it was getting very busy headed off.

As we had never been to the Rainforest Café before we decided now was the time to try it. The place was heaving but we were seated in about 15 minutes. Now portions here are huge, not realising this we both ordered appetizers, I had the mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce.



Nathan had the Raging Thunder Buffalo Wings.



For entrée I had the Mogambo Shrimp pasta.



Nathan had the Mojo Bones half rack of ribs, which looked like a full rack to me!



The restaurant was very well themed and the shouts of ‘volcano’ whenever the volcano dessert came out was amusing. After a very filling meal we headed back to SSR and the pool Today the pool was a bit busier as the weather was fab. We had a swim and then relaxed on the loungers with several refills in our refillable mugs



Later in the evening we headed off to Epcot to watch Illuminations. I must say Spaceship Earth looks great when lit up at night





We then headed off to World Showcase and sampled the lamb from Australia once more before viewing Illuminations from Japan, which was an angle we had never viewed from before.







As soon as it was over we made our way out via International Gateway as soon as we could and went to the Beach Club and caught the bus to DTD. We made it just in time to catch the last showing of the day for The Bourne Ultimatum at 9.55pm. This finished around midnight and we caught the bus back to SSR.

a little on the OCD side
very impulsive, which doesn’t bode well for our credit cards!
They don't call me "Clever Claire" for nothing!

Lovely report. I don't think I could manage a cinema at the end of the day. I think I would end up snoozing.

Great pictures again!

Could just eat the mozzarella sticks - they're really nice. Don't know why we can't get them here in the UK
