Day 2 Part 2

Next on our tour was Puerto Rico,


here we had the Medianoche Sandwich, it was made with Roast Beef, Ham, Swiss and two kinds of Pickles. It was toasted and wonderful.


To drink we had the Bacardi Frozen Torched Cherry Colada, it was wonderful, the Cherry flavor was intense, it was very cold and refreshing, sweet and slushy.



Mexico was next


and we ordered the Tamal de Pollo, the masa was moist, the chicken was tender, flavorful and the tomatillo sauce was very nice.



We also ordered the Taco de Chilorio, the Chrizio was flavorful but very greasy, and I dropped the red/orange grease on my white shoe which really made me mad…



To drink we got a Passion Fruit Frozen Margarita, it was 12oz which is 4 oz bigger than any other drink out there.



From here we detoured over to La Cava and decided to have the flight of tequila, the nice girl in the bar, told us the story and went over everything in the mural. She was very friendly and helped us to understand a lot, she brought over several types of tequila from behind the bar and brought us three different kinds to try and one had the tomato juice back, like the bloody Maria.


We ordered the guacamole, it was made fresh right when we ordered it and the chips were very crisp.



From there we headed to Poland,


we ordered Golabki (Pork Stuffed Cabbage), it was tender and tangy, but very greasy.


We also ordered Belvedere Strawberry Balsamic Chiller, it was like Frozen Strawberry Puree and Balsamic, the vinegar gave it a little bit of a bite.




Next stop was China, here we ordered the Black Pepper Shrimp with Sichuan noodles, the noodles were cooked very well, still tender but not mushy.


The shrimp were slightly over cooked, and chewy, cooked in a tempura batter.

We also had the Carmel Ginger Ice Cream, it was very good, with many chunks of the Ginger in the Ice Cream.


We stopped and watched the Chinese acrobats. They were really good as usual.




South Korea was next,


we ordered Lettuce Wraps with Roast pork and Kimchi Slaw, this meal was light, refreshing, with lots of ginger and sesame oil. We also ordered the Bohae Bokbunjajoo, which is a Black Raspberry Rice Wine, we liked the way this one tasted and was paired well for the slaw.




Next was South Africa,


we ordered the Seared Beef Tenderloin with Sweet Potato Puree and Mango Barbecue Sauce. The potato puree tasted like banana, I did not like it. The Beef tasted good, but was over cooked, and the sauce was tangy. Mostly it was not for us and we would not recommend it. It did not live up to last year.


Singapore was the next stop,

here we ordered the Coconut Braised Beef Rangdang with jasmine Rice, All I could say about this one was Extremely Dry and Yuck. Their other item was a shrimp cake which we opted to not get since it did not look good.

Day 2 Part 3

After all of this we decided to go to the Brewer’s Collection and get the beer flight. We had the Schofferhofer Weizen which was clean and fruity (David’s Favorite), the Altenmunster Octoberfest which was flavorful and smooth (my favorite) and the Altenmunster Marzen which was effervescent and crisp.







We hopped on the bus and headed back to the resort. We stopped by the lounge and talked to the club level CM’s about what to expect tomorrow and how our luggage will be handled.













We had a couple of finger foods and then walked down to the savanna to see some of the animals and take some pictures.

















Back to our room and packing up the room, we had to make sure that everything was ready to go to the bell hops by 6:45.

I think my internet connection timed out while they were loading last night. They were there today. Great Food Porn! Finally I make it into someone's TR before they're done posting!

We stayed on concierge three years ago (I think after the cost of that trip is why we bought DVC) and they didn't have nearly as much out for the evening snacks. It's amazing how much you can save on breakfast eating up there!

You take great pictures, I can't wait to see more!

Day 3 Part 1

October 14 - Thursday
Start of day 3….
We got up early this morning, and had the bell service pick up our luggage at 6:45AM, we had to be at the CL desk at 7:00AM to check in on the Sunrise Safari. We got our bracelets and headed down to the lobby, in the far back area next to the yellow mask and waited for the Animal Keepers to show up.




They had us ready to leave at 7:30AM, we headed out the front doors, boarded a bus to ride over to Animal Kingdom, we went in thru the service/cast member entrance.




We finally made it to the back entrance of the Kilimanjaro Safari and boarded before the park opened and




we were in the first truck with the animal keeper named Chris, he had been in charge of the Elephants for a long while prior to coming over to the Lodge.


We started the safari and rode into the Hambre Wildlife reserve,


we saw some birds


and then we came across a Rhino, he would not look at me or pose but we got some nice pictures.





Then we came across Greater Kudo and got some neat pictures,


next we saw a stork and it was carrying some branches to a location where it was building a nest.



Next on our tour was the hippo pond and we got to see a hippo then he hide the rest of the time,


the female hippos we on the other side of the pond, and they were lying on each other.


The pelican island was next and they were telling us that they are breeding so well that they are supplying the rest of the American Zoological Association.


Then we saw the alligator’s, there were a bunch of them and they were all pretty lazy.



We next saw some kind of deer, I can’t remember the name but it was cute.


Next one we saw was the Ankole Cattle, their horns are hollow with just some blood vessels and more like fingernails.

Day 3 Part 2

Next we got the Thomson ’s gazelle nicknamed the “tommies”.


Next were the White-Bearded Wilderbest, those buggers are big.


After that we saw a playful Giraffe it was cute and funny.









After that Elephant we on the scene and we saw a cute little baby elephant.



The baby was so cute and playful running back and forth.









The flamingo island was next, they were cute from far away but they stink up close.

There were a bunch of Kudu after that they were posing for the pictures.


Next on the ride was Cheetah’s, they were so far away and hard to see.


We made it to the lion dens and the lion was full of it and barking to the lioness and she was not happy and let him know it.






Then we got to see the hog’s, there was a mom and babies.
