My family LOVES Dinosaur! I covered my DD's eyes last year when they take your picture and she got mad at me!

That Dinosaur photo is too funny!

And BTW Jackie...I have a funny feeling you are going to have a hard time taking Disney transportation again after this trip! If you like rope drop in particular, it is so much easier driving yourself to the Parks! As far as I am concerned, just making rope drops on my own terms each day pays for my rental in and of itself. Not waiting in bus lines at Park closing is just icing on the cake!

I think that ride photo is really a hoot! Charles and Connor seem to be enjoying the ride but I'm not so sure about Chelsea. You? No mistake....

It's a bumpy ride but I rather like it and Shocker rather doesn't!

Hmmmm, more potato head parts just might be in my future.

Can't wait for Asia!

We always take our car in the mornings, too. We love being early for rope drop. So we drive and then use the bus to go back to our hotel for breaks. That way, our car is still in the close parking spot when we leave.

Jackie ~ Your redneck photo from Dinosaur has got to be one of the best I've seen! What a classic!!! Chris and I have plenty of redneck pics too, but none that can even compare to yours!

Yay! All caught up! I'm so glad school started so I had a chance to catch up. Looks like such a great start to Chelsea's Magical Birthday Trip. I'm glad the camera was recovered! Great stash of souvies so far. Loved the redneck ride photo! It looks good enough to frame! Hope you had a nice Holiday! School starts here tomorrow, and you already have a month in

Your "redneck" dino picture is priceless.

You got lots of great shots in Dinoland and I know there will be lots more to come. Looking forward to your Asia shots.

I think this may be the trip of the Tater Head parts.
I say that every trip, too, but sadly, we are still tater-less.

Once Chelsea was up, she was fine, but peeling her out of bed was always a huge production on this trip. Thank goodness Connor was eager to be up and going.

I guess now that Seth made his appearance early, we have a new mall planned.

I was very pleased with the quality of our ride photo. We all love Dinosaur -- ride it every trip -- although, as you can see, there are some moments that are just too intense for Chelsea and me. LOL!

Very good coffee at that particular stand. Charles and the kids were much more fascinated by those bugs than I was -- I am not a fan of spiders or hissing cockroaches!

It's cute, and you have to remember it is supposed to look like a tacky roadside carnival. Of course, here in the South, the tacky roadside carnivals are not that high-class. LOL!

We did do The Taste of Africa later in the day -- it was a lot of fun! I can't wait to write about that because two of my favorite pictures from the trip were taken during it.

Really? What a drag to have that job! It's not like the people taking the "redneck" pictures would buy them anyway. I know we wouldn't cough up that kind of money for ride photos.

Hey Jackie!!

Well I am actually going to bed, but I wanted to pop over to say HI! Since I saw your green light on!!!! I am so sore! I did more landscaping in one day than I care to think about! I am beat. But I did start my DTD day, and I am SLOWLY creeping up through my replies! I am looking forward to your next AK stop!!!

Have a good short week! We have Thursday off for a Jewish holiday observance. We are going to the Washington Monument (do you know I have never been!!!??) If you want to do this you should check into the ticketing process.

Anyhow, I will be back to check up on you this week!!

I figure it is just going to get worse. She was killing us on this trip because she has never not wanted to get up on vacation!

It's such a drag to drive all the way down to Disney from Atlanta, but we did really appreciate having our car once we were there.

Welcome!!! I have decided that if I have to lose something somewhere, I would choose to do it at Disney.

I need someone to pack our box -- we did a Lego tub for Connor on this trip, and we are not very good at maximizing the space.

We were there at rope drop, and it was pretty quiet for the first couple of hours. It did get progressively more crowded as the day went on.

Wild pigs??? Too funny about the night vision tour with flashlights on your Mickey ears! LOL!

I have tried to pinpoint it, but can't quite decide. I think part of it was giving him some say-so in the decisions, another part was that we made sure to take a mid-day break every single day.

Lots of cute theming in the Dinoland store! It's right across from Primeval Whirl and Triceratop Spin. I like Dinosaur, just not that scary mouth-breathing dinosaur at the end.

Since you are going during the off-season, the buses shouldn't be bad at all.

Chelsea wasn't crazy about the ride this year for some reason. It never bothered her before. Yep, there's no mistaking the fact that I just can't face some of those dinosaurs.

We all really like it (believe it or not). I would love to ride the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland that is supposed to have the same kind of track.

Oh, that's a good idea! I will have to remember that tip! The return to the parks at night was always the tricky part for me.

Great stash of souvies so far. Loved the redneck ride photo! It looks good enough to frame! Hope you had a nice Holiday! School starts here tomorrow, and you already have a month in
Yeay for being caught up! It's hard to believe that we have already been in school a month. It has flown by!

You got lots of great shots in Dinoland and I know there will be lots more to come. Looking forward to your Asia shots.
Thanks!!! I always take a lot of pictures in Animal Kingdom. It will probably take me six updates to get through the entire day.

Well I am actually going to bed, but I wanted to pop over to say HI! Since I saw your green light on!!!! I am so sore! I did more landscaping in one day than I care to think about! I am beat. But I did start my DTD day, and I am SLOWLY creeping up through my replies! I am looking forward to your next AK stop!!!
Hi, HD! I should probably be in bed, but I wanted to catch up on the DIS. We had family in town this weekend, so I didn't get to relax quite as much as I would have liked, but we had fun.

I bet you are beat from all the yard work you did this weekend! Is the landscaping officially finished yet?

It's Rosh Hashanah, isn't it? One of my very closest friends is Jewish, and I think she mentioned it was this week.

That sounds like fun! Do you get tickets ahead of time for the Washington Monument? There is so much I don't know about DC...
