Wow what a great trip so far! The kids look so cute in their outfits! You did a great job on the shorts and the skirts.

Can't wait to read more about your trip.

Thank you so much. Those were the first skirts I had ever made other than the plain one for under Hayley's Halloween costume. The trip was beyond all of my expectations. Disney is wonderful!

I love the "older" characters. Wait until you see who was out at Epcot later in the week. I am updating now that I am back from Girl Scouts. The girls got to go into the kitten city in pairs. There were 10 kittens in the city. They were in heaven and their Pet Care badge is now done! We have been working on it all semester with guest speakers and different activities!

As we were leaving the secluded character area, we ran into DeVine. She is simply magnificent to watch. We watched her for about five minutes.









Then it was on to the safari. I took pictures along the way.





We were able to get right on a safari that was about to leave.





















I took lots of pictures of the giraffes for Tyler. He loves giraffes. Could you tell by his shorts? He picked the material.

Here are the rest of the safari photos:















If you look to the middle right, you can see two cheetahs in this photo.







After the safari, we took the train to Rafiki’s planet watch. At this point I was noticing that my camera was getting worse. About every 5th picture was coming out blurry. I managed to make it work through the trip, but I also have lots of unusable blurry photos. It is a good thing I take so many. I will send it in under warranty, but it will have to wait until after Christmas.





















Then the kids were able to pet this animal. I am not sure what it is. It is the larger version of the acouchi and its name rhymes with acouchi. It is related to the acouchis that we have at our zoo that run loose in the jungle building. The animal handler had never seen an acouchi before and she was impressed that we could see them at our zoo.











More planet watch activities are in the next post. I can only put 25 photos per post!

Your pics continue to amaze me. I have to admit I got a little teary eyed from the FOTLK pics and what they did for your family. Cant wait to read more!

We checked out the inside of the building.









We looked around inside some more. Then we got in line to meet Rafiki. We were told that Jiminy Cricket would not be out for about 45 more minutes so we did not get to meet him. Pocahontas was also out, but we had already met her.









Then we went outside to the petting zoo. On the interior bridge the goats were locking horns and trying to butt one another off of the bridge. It was entertaining.

















They were having an animal information session in the outdoor pavilion. They were showing off a porcupine and a kid from the audience was selected to help train him. We caught the end of the show. Aaron and Hayley watched the whole show while I had the two older ones in the petting area.









Here is a cute hedgehog that they used earlier in the show:





They had out some porcupine quills so you could feel them. They were smooth and then the points were very sharp.



Then I took a picture of the pretend village from the train on the way back to the main station.

Thank you so much! The FOTLK was just unbelievable. There are no words to describe the magic that Diane and her co-workers created for us!

Now at this point Aaron really wanted to ride Kali River Rapids. I did not as I did not want to be wet the rest of the day, but we headed that way to show Tyler the ride. On the way we found a fun rickshaw so Bre and I posed for a photo.



Then the kids saw the gibbons. Despite their calling, “Whoooop” to them, they did not respond. They did turn to the direction of my kids’ obnoxious noise. We have an animal park here that has two gibbons and Tyler and Hayley have perfectly replicated their whooping sound and do it non-stop.













Then we took another detour to Expedition Everest. Tyler was too small to ride. Breanna and I rode first.



Aaron chose not to ride so I took some more picture of the coaster going up and down. Tyler liked to sit and watch and say, “up” when it went up and “down” when it came down over and over!








I loved these flowers.



Tyler saw Kali River Rapids and decided that he was not going on it so we walked over to Dino Land.





Hayley and I walked around while the other three rode the Triceratops Spin.











Then I took some more pictures of the Christmas decorations.





Then we tried to meet Goofy and Pluto, but since we did not have a green stop light on our GAC, the cast member would not let us. It was not a problem as they had seen Goofy earlier. So we headed towards the front of the park.

The parade was going by and guess what? It was Mickey’s Jungle Jammin Jingle parade that was not supposed to start until the next week! It was great and I was able to fit Breanna and Tyler right in front of some adults so everyone could see the parade perfectly!

Yeah! My trip report is unlocked and I can post again. I am not sure what caused it to get locked in the first place. I will add more updates soon!

I think the Mod was trying to move it over to the Trip Report board (from the Pre-Trip board) and it landed on the Completed Trip Report board instead!

It is all good!

I love the pics you have posted!! I couldn't post all of my comments earlier...I think you take GREAT pics!

Can't wait to hear more about the magic!!

Here are some more parade photos:













Then after the parade we found Lilo and Stitch. We are now 2/2 at finding Stitch in the parks!









Stitch was up to his normal ornery self, but Tyler loved playing with him!

Then we found our friend, Christopher. He was on the phone when he came down the hill to where Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore were. He recognized us, smiled really big and waved. He visited with us as the kids visited the characters. He asked the kids if they had enjoyed the Christmas party and if we saw Stitch today!

First the kids met Pooh.





Then they saw Eeyore.

I was worried I exceeded the photo limit for a trip report. I searched the boards for answers. I am glad it is open again1 More magic coming in 2 minutes! Make sure you are sitting down!

Next up was Tigger!











I am not sure if I mentioned this before, but it was right at 4:30 when we entered the line and the line closes at 4:30 PM. As you can see all of the guests were able to meet the characters one at a time. Then we were the last family in line so Pooh and Eeyore decided that we should take pictures with everyone all together! Maroo, are you sitting down for these pictures? p00h4me, you will love these!















Then Pooh waved bye to us while still holding on tightly to Hayley. He explained to us through signs that he was keeping Hayley. I asked if Hayley was going to live in the Hundred Acre Wood with him and he shook his head with a yes.

























That is our new friend, Christopher, over by Eeyore!
