Great update! Why is it not at all suprising that boys are fascinated with poop? Go figure.

The pretzel sounds yummy. Much better than my shredded wheat I'm eating for breakfast.

Yak and Yeti sounds like it was delicious! Is it on the dining plan? Yum!!

You got some gorgeous safari pictures. Good work.

Yeah, when you're a boy, it is hard to get excited about elephant tusks when you know someone is talking about poop nearby!

It looks like the tigers and safari animals were pretty active -- we have never seen the cheetahs so visible before!

We enjoyed the food and theming of Yak and Yeti as well -- it's nice to be able to escape to a nice, quiet restaurant during the day.

thanks for the "shout-out"!

The poop comment made me laugh. I know those days are soon approaching when Henry will find it hilarious! Currently just the word makes him laugh, but when he sees it ON DISPLAY! I'm sure it will be a highlight....

NYE week at Disney did something kinda funny to me - when you mention a 40 minute wait I now think..."not bad".

Great pictures of the safari the animals were out posing for you! We ate at Yak & Yeti it was quite tasty! Wish I would have had the wontons, those sound great. We all split the brownie sundae.

I keep hearing all these good reviews of Tutto Italia and Yak&Yeti; they're going on my "must try" list!

Although I do love Primeval Whirl, I would *never* wait 40 minutes for it!

I know there will be a few times on the May trip when I wish the boys were with me. Seeing poop at AK will probably one of them (I think I'll get over it quickly when someone says "lets grab a margarita then ride EE again!")

Looks like our paths may cross a couple times in the parks, and of course at the resort!

I love AK, it's very photographable (is that a word??)

Oh my, it rained 11 inches in one day? I can't even imagine. I knew that there was a stretch last May when Orlando got dumped on in the rain department, but that is a crazy amount of rain!

I was actually amazed that the ride was even open. The kids did mention riding once, I just looked at them like they were crazy and said 'do you really want to be wet right now?' They thought about it for a minute and wisely changed their mind!

Great update! I have never been to Animal Kingdom--it looks gorgeous! I can't wait to see it in person (and to ride EE!).

Boys and gross stuff go hand in hand, I think.

Yak & Yeti is on the dining plan, at least it was, I haven't actually checked this years list of participating restaurants, but I would assume that it is still on there. It was good!

I think the tigers were more active than I have ever seen them, usually they are just laying around. I was trying to remember if I had ever even seen the cheetahs before, I think this was the first time!

Oh man, just wait! Soon poo, burps, farts, anything gross will be the funniest thing ever!! Boys - gotta love 'em!

Isn't it funny how 2 hr wait times change what you think is an acceptable line length?

The animals were out & about. I pulled out the 'big' lens for the safari hoping to catch some decent shots.

The wontons were really good, they had carmel drizzled over them and came with pineapple - they were yummy!

I know - they are all facing the same direction and everything - except that one rule breaker!

Or 'let's grab a Lost on Safari & then ride EE again'!!! After hearing Happydog & CP raving over that drink, I can't wait to try it!

We do cross paths quite a bit - I'm sure we'll bump into each other at some point!

Animal Kingdom has so many great things to look at - don't miss the details, it's really well done!

I think EE is probably my favorite WDW ride, I love it.

Thank you for sharing such wonderful pictures! I agree with you about AK, I have so many pictures from that park... very "photographical"
FOW is amazing, I am glad you liked it too! We went in there just on a whim and really enjoyed the show. I would go again.
Yes!! I am with you regarding the creepiness of bats when they crawl!!! They are super freaky when they do that!! We had a bat in our house in December and because of the cold it was in slow motion with its wings spread and it crawled on the floor..... ewwww!!! It was easy to catch because of being sluggish but I do NOT like bats!

Sorry I am late in catching up

My advice for the May trip- get the Sci Fi ADR ASAP. It's getting pretty tough to score lately You can always cancel it later if you change your mind. Also, I probably wouldn't mess with going to a park on your last day with a noon DME pick up. Just stay out late the night before and finish packing in the AM.

Great AK pics!! And lol on the poop! And I am adding the stuffed pretzels to my list of junk to try in June

More!!!

You had a bat in your house???!!! I've seen them around here a few times at night flying around, but I don't know how I'd handle it if one got into the house and I had to try and dispose of it! I'm getting the chills right now just thinking about it!

I think I will go ahead and make that ADR for Sci-Fi, just in case. And, you're probably right about that last day - I just love to go to a park for at least a little while on the last day, but we really wouldn't have much time.

The closer we get to May the more excited I am, I just can't wait to share Disney with her - I hope she loves it as much as I do!
