Well fartadelic! I had typed up a nice installment (and photobucket was cooperating), when we I received an internet error report. I thought I had copied the installment before the internet shut down but I guess I didn't. I'll start over again.

On our way out of It's Tough To Be A Bug, it was decided that we'd go over to Camp Minnie Mickey and see Festival of the Lion King. Because we had a little time to kill before the show started, Hunter wanted to get a few character autographs.

First, we saw Minnie all gussied up in her safari suit:




And then, we walked up the trail to see this guy:






John didn't stand in line with Hunter and I but rather sat down on a bench near the bathrooms. When we left Mickey, we saw John motioning us over. The place was getting a bit crowded and John thought that we better go ahead and get in line for Festival of the Lion King. It's a good thing that we did too because right after we got in line, lots of folks started lining up.

Standing in front of us was a family of five. There was a grandmother who was probably in her late 60s/early 70s, a dad and mother who were early 30ish and two kids about 3 and 7. I felt so sorry for the grandmother. They had her loaded down like a pack mule. She had a large tote bag which was filed to the hilt on one shoulder. On the other shoulder, she had a diaper bag thing. Around her neck was a misting fan and she was juggling two water bottles in her arms. What did the mother and dad have? Absolutely nothing! Poor grandma!

We didn't have to wait too long before they started letting us into the theater. Because we were near the front of the line, we were able to get seats on the front row. Well, not the front row because the front two rows are for handicapped persons but the next front row. We were in the giraffe section again. Seems like every time we go to the show we are giraffes. I mean who the heck knows how to make a giraffe sound. One day, I'm going to grow up and be an elephant!

We're sitting there and people are still filtering into the theater and this family comes in and sits down in the row in front of us. The handicapped section. Were they handicapped? Did they have a handicapped person with them? NO! Were there other seats available in the theater? Yes! I NEVER and I mean NEVER sit or park in a handicapped section. EVER. These people were already on my poop list when they started getting loud and obnoxious. They were talking loud and started clapping really loud to try and get other people to clap. After about 5 minutes of this, I couldn't help myself and I leaned down and sweetly said "I don't think it's working so you can stop." The guy gave me a really ugly look and John gave me a "I'm proud of you." look. The guy stopped clapping but was still loud even throughout the show. I hate sitting near those kind of people.

Here are some pictures of the show. Some aren't so hot and they are out of order but since photobucket is cooperating right now, I better post them before they disappear.


I love the tumble monkeys:






Continued in next post.

Again, this is probably out of order but this guy comes out and he's twirling his fire baton thingies. These are pictures of the twirling but what I didn't get was his headpiece catching on fire!!!!! Yep, it caught on fire when he laid down and was twirling. I guess he smelled/felt it because he just rolled his head a little on the stage and it went out. I don't think anybody else even saw it. Kind of freaked me out.






Later, Mr. Hair on Fire came out with his sword/knives a twirling:





The blue and red heads in these pictures are the obnoxious dad and one of his kids. Sorry, just can't let it go.:




And, then, they started getting kids from the audience to come out and do the little parade around the theater. Hunter was chosen to be one of the kids. I think he felt a little out of place since he was one of the oldest kids chosen. But, he liked it anyway.:
















The big finale:











Ahhhhh! We love Festival of the Lion King! Up next, Dinoland USA!

I don't know if you or your boss put up the bells but if your boss did - it's great that he gave you a warning system for when he enters the office! I needed one like that when I used to work for someone!

Add me to those who hate the obnoxious people that can't follow directions. I step on the feet of those who stop in the middle of aisle and plop themselves down in Philharmagic.

Have any of you ever posted over on the Intercot boards? I've been posting my trip report over there and have had tons of people say they are enjoying the report so far. I just got two private messages from their moderators saying that my report has inappropriate behavior. They edited out John meeting Pocahontas and Hunter and I spitting. Holy smokes! I know they are about to edit out Hunter's booger smearing story. I guess I'm about to be banned from Intercot.

Totally awesome update. Glad Hunter was picked instead of Mr. Obnoxious' kids. It's because of him his kiddos didn't get picked. Trust me those Disney people can pick those rude people out so quick and they know how to ignore them. Too bad the kids have to suffer and grow up just like them.

We did not catch that show since the rain went so late in the day. I really am going to have to go back and call for a mulligan so I can relive AK. And do EE 10 times.

My life is a hoot. But a good hoot. Nothing mean just lots of fun. Glad your little one is doing well. I had written on like your final TR regarding him. You had so many posts I don't know if you read it or not. But think of you and your family and what a treasure you have.

Love the FOTLK pictures!!!! You got some really great shots!! My camera doesn't do very well in a theater setting. Then again I'm still learning new things on it every day and I've had for over 6 months now... Hopefully I will get it figured out in time for our next trip.

Sorry about the rude people that sat in front of you during the show.We had something very similar happen at The Finding Nemo Musical. But it was the people behind us being very loud and rude.

That so great that Hunter was picked to be part of the show--very cool!!

I feel sorry for the kids because they were acting the same way as the dad was. The mother was just sitting over there saying nothing at all. I so wouldn't have been able to hold my tongue if I were her.

You've got to get back to the Animal Kingdom. There's just so much you missed.

If I could have carried part of the load for that grandmother, I would have. Those stupid 30 years old were just standing around. When I become a grandmother, I'm going to spoil the kids like crazy but I'm not going to be their pack mule.

I was still learning about the camera settings when we went to Disney. I'm hoping to get better shots this go round.

Most times, I am able to keep my mouth shut but this guy was just super duper obnoxious. Hate those kind of people.
