Animal Kingdom Part 3

After It's Tough to be a Bug, we made our way to KS. We made it just in time for our FP time and only waited in line about 5 minutes.

By this point, we were all thoroughly enjoying our safari, so DFi took a pic of my Disney happy face

Animal Kingdom Part 3 (Cont)

This is the time where our safari differs from others. We slowed down a bit to let the other safaris ahead of us catch up. Of course this would be the time that a rhino decides to cross on the path in front of us and he does this very slowly. However, it gave us plenty of time to grab some great photos.

Update

We are officially booked for the December trip for Dec. 11-18 with QS dining and 6 day water park & more tickets. Of course, I'm sure we'll change the plans a whole bunch before we go. Especially since I'm hoping free dining will come out for December again.

Now I just need to finish up this TR so I can start my new PTR!

Congratulations! Nothing beats the Disney blues like knowing there's another trip in the works.

And...where are you staying??? Our trips might overlap a bit.... unless I move ours back a bit. I am thinking I might push it from the 15th to the 19th and extend from the 22nd to the 26th...or maybe 27th. (it might be nice to have a full day in the parks on the 26th since it is my bday. )

Now to just wait out the year, right? I could say it is draggin on...but... considering I started planning this 2 months ago.... I think the rest of the time might go by fast. (not too fast though...I want my life to pass me by while I wait for Disney. )

The rest of 1st AK day

After our Safari, we decided to check out Rafiki's planet watch. However, we didn't have very much time to spend there since it was already about 3pm and RPW closes at 5pm. Once we got to the train station, a train was already finished boarding so we were told we would have to wait for the next one. This made us get to RPW at around 3:30pm. Once we finally arrived, we decided to check out one of the kid stations. I believe it was some sort of animal search. Each kid got a list of what animals to find and then had to look through the fenced area for them. All of the animals were fake so this made it a little easier to locate them. After that, we walked over to Conservation Station. Alleyah is interested in possibly becoming a vet one day so she really enjoyed this area. There were also a few Disney characters to get pictures and autographs from. The Disney characters there that day were Pocahontas, a character from Jungle Book, and Jiminy Cricket. The girls wanted to get a photo with Pocahontas but the line was really long. So they got a picture with Jiminy instead.




After meeting Jiminy, we went to check out the petting zoo. We only got to spend a few minutes there because they were about to close. Once we got back to the train, the wait was much less due to more trains coming since they were closing. Once we arrived back, we went towards Asia, so DFi could ride EE. We made our way over to EE and grabbed 4 FPs. Even if Alleyah wouldn't ride, DFi could ride twice. After getting the FPs, we decided to ride KRR and it only had a 20 minute wait so we went for it. It was definitely worth it. Neither of us had rode it before and we all had a blast. We all got wet but Alleyah and I got soaked. Ofcourse waiting in line so close to Yak & Yeti started making us very hungry. That places smells incredible. It is definitely one of our must trys on the next trip. After KS, we went straight to EE. We briefly tried to convince Alleyah to ride it but gave up. So DFi and Haylee rode first while Alleyah and I waited outside the gift shop. Then DFi and I rode it while the girls waited in the gift shop. DFi loves this ride. It was his favorite of the entire trip.

AK day (cont)

After EE, we had just enough time to ride Dinosaur. Here are a few pics on the way and while waiting in line.







This was a new ride for all of us as well and we all enjoyed but it was a bit scary even for me. After that, it was around 7pm, so we decided to leave the park and go to Boma for our 8:20pm ressie. It did take us a bit longer to get there than I planned and we arrived at AKL only about 10 to 15 minutes before our reservation. This made our wait much longer than we intended. Plus, there were several people showing up without a reservation trying to get tables. This was very frustrating since we were all very hungry by this time. I think we were seated some around 8:40pm or 8:45pm. Here a few pics of our food:








Hummus

AK day (cont)



After dinner, the girls and I explored the resort while DFi went for a smoke. After that we went to wait for a bus. We decided since it was already so late, we should take a bus to DTD and transfer to a POP bus from there. This turned out to be a huge mistake. We didn't wait too long for a DTD bus but once at DTD, we waited forever to get on a POP bus. They were having some sort of bus issues and were waiting on more to show up.This caused me to have a minor meltdown on the bus. Because we were all hot and tired, I got upset because the kids were grumpy and so I cried a little. Afterwards, some people on the bus made rude comments about it which made it worse. Once, we arrived back at POP somewhere around midnight or 12:30am and went straight to bed.

Up Next, our first day at Epcot...

Yeah, they were horrible. I am a slacker and just got finished reading your TR from September. I had the exact same bus problems as you did. Not to be mean, but we were constantly waiting on scooters and wheelchairs. 3 or 4 buses would go before we got on. I don't know if it was because of FD or if it was because we were at POP. When I stayed at CBR in June/July 2006, we never had bus issues like that. It makes me wonder if perhaps CBR buses run more often than POP's. That's why I'm hoping if/when they announce FD for December that the Regular DP is free with moderates so we can upgrade to CBR or POFQ.

By the way, I loved your TR. It brought me back to Disney. It made me so glad I am in the process of planning a new trip.
