Oh girl I sanitize my room every single time. You never know what was in there before you....Swine Flu isn't nearly as bad as some other things you could catch. Clorox wipes, lysol, and even lice spray for the beds! I've heard a lot of stories about lice, bed bugs, and boogars.

I'm bookmarking now so I can keep up. Can't wait to see what all happens!

Hey there!
I guess before this flu scare I never gave much thought to all the germs and gross things that could be lurking in the room. I'm real glad I never heard about the lice or boogers! EW! Anyway, as the week progressed I was real glad I had wiped down everything because I came to realize all the housekeeper was doing was leaving towels and making the beds. I don't think she ever actually "cleaned" anything so I was glad that I had! We hope to have a new post up later today!

Day 1 our first park!



After we got settled into our room we decided it was time to visit our first park of the trip! Where did we go? Well there was a certain parade I've never seen so we headed to that park so I could catch this "must see" parade. Which park? We were off to the AK to catch the Jammin Jungle Parade since we had never seen it!


Our first stop at AK was Guest Relations because my parents wanted to get me a "celebration" button in honor of my making the Dean's List. The Cm's in there were really cool and all high 5ed me and wrote "Dean's List" on the bottom of the pin. We stopped to look at the wait times board and we were suprised the waits weren't longer since we were arriving mid-day.

Our first stop was the Kilimanjaro Safari to pick up fast passes. After we got them we decided to venture down the Pangani Trail since we had always skipped that in the past. The fist thing we saw were the Colobus Monkeys with their wild white hairdos and it was so cute because they had a baby they were holding.


The next animal we saw were these really cool antelope/deer kind of animals that could stand straight up to eat off the trees. It was fascinating to watch them! The zookeeper said they have hips like humans that swivel so they can stand up like that.



Further down the trail we encountered huge gorillas.



We were really glad we checked out the trail because it was really interesting! After the trail we were walking through Asia and noticed the Flights of Wonder show was just about to begin so my parents made me go in despite my Ornithophobia . Yes, birds freak me out! (Ever since a turkey nipped me in the butt but thats another story) So we went into this show-which my parents enjoyed-and birds are flying all over the place. Even into the audience!!!! Some of the tricks they did were cool but I was much more comfortable when they stayed on the stage!


After what seemed like a very long show we left and headed to Dinosaur. The wait time was about 20 minutes but the air conditioning was a welcome relief as we were having a hard time adjusting to the heat! Since we'd never waited in the queue for this ride before we got to see something we'd always missed. In all the times we've ridden we'd never seen the Asteroid hitting the Earth. It's no big thing but at Disney its all about the details! We rode Dinosaur in the last row and what a crazy ride you get back there! It was the bumpiest ride ever! When we got out of Dinosaur it was about half an hour til the parade so we headed over to get a good spot. We wound up sitting right across the street from the Bug's Life attraction, right on the corner. The ground was so hot though that we had to go in the store and pick up a beach towel to sit on. We got that cute one with Pooh and the tiger that we'd always liked but never picked up. We spent the next half hour in anticipation of the parade


Coming up tomorrow: The Jammin' Jungle Parade!!!!

I know me too! My mom recognized you and was like "Aren't they Disers?" and then I realized it was you! I wish I would have said hi too but you two were on the run I only saw one other DISer the entire week and I swear seeing DISers is like spotting a celebrity at Disneyworld

We rode Dinosaur in the front row in Dec. and it is much bumpier in back! The front row is fun because you get such a great view! Yea the heat really suprised us! We normally go in March or April (this year we had to wait for Caitlin's finals to be over) and its much cooler then! We had fun spotting dissers and we were looking for LGMH everywhere we went!

Lovely AK pictures, especially the animals. I LOVE Dinosaur. For some reason it is one of those rides that I could do over and over. I will be taking my 9 year old nephew with us in June and I hope he loves this ride too. I hope it doesn't scare him!

I love the JJ parade. I like the Christmas one the best. Can't wait to read more!

Those antelopes look so cool standing up like that. Nice pics!!
It's been a while since we did the Pangani Trail (it's harder with the wee little ones) but it's always fun.
Did you guys hit the Maharajah Trek as well?

We have always been at DW in the late fall. I don't know if I could handle that extreme heat. I will be anxious to see if you got used to it at all.

We have never been down a trail at the AK. It looks like it we need to. Those deer-like animals are so cool!

I would think a 9 year old boy would LOVE Dinosaur! The first time we took my DM on this ride she was terrified! She could not wait to get off!

Those antelope were so cool! We were fascinated and must of stood there watching them for 10 minutes! We didn't make it to the Maharajah Trek. We had planned to do that on our "other" AK day but we never made it back. That just gives us something to look forward to next time .

We did get used to the heat. What has been more difficult though is getting used to the cold! We've had 2 frost warnings since we got home! Going from 95 to 37 is absolutely crazy!

We'd never done the trail either and I was so glad we did! It was really interesting and it was peaceful, relaxing walk!
