And by "extremely excited to see them," I mean slouched down on the bench looking as though he was ready for a nap. I think he actually started to lie down at one point, all the time insisting that he was enjoying the ride and wanted to see more animals. How much was his ticket again?
Evan actually fell asleep on that ride once. Yup, the silky smooth pathway lulled him right to sleep.

Is that because no place actually develops this "film" that you talk about?

Oh, we don't need those pictures to mock you.

Did they let out an evil cackle every time they did it? Not that I do or anything...

That's OK, as his nemesis, I hereby deputize you. Feel free to do any dastardly thing to Tim that you feel like.

Cool, I've been deputized.

It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Nice AK update. I'm with Scotty...love the Safari ride. I'm assuming this is the male lion you are talking about:



I don' think I've ever seen him awake either.

I think I may have a picture from May of when the lion audio-animatronic was actually working.




It's not in my photobucket, so it must still be on my home computer. I'll have to check that out.

I know! Let's all write letters to Disney to ask them to fix the lion.

Well I will never have a chance with your movie quotes game but I am enjoying the TR! The male lion is always sleeping when we go too! And we got stuck on the right side of our safari with another couple on the left of us, and really all the action is on the left booo!

Not sure. I never saw Snakes on a Plane. I have heard a few other quotes from that movie, though--I don't think I'm allowed to post them here.

Well, it was a nice chapter. I've never been able to get a good picture of the lion either, although I haven't gotten to the part in my current TR where we do the safari....so, will my bad luck hold?
Sorry about the timing. But keep in mind, there will be a quality bonus point opportunity coming up later in the TR.

And nice job slipping in a promo for your TR! That is a professional Trip Reporter move, right there.

I will say to everyone else--check out glennbo123's ongoing TR! I'm only through about 1/3 of it so far, but it's highly enjoyable, has lots of fun comments from the readers, and nifty Star Wars-themed chapter headings!

Sorry you aren't a fan of Kali. I think the best approach is to just accept that you'll be soaked and plan accordingly. It's not received as well when it's a surprise.

I too LOVE POR...so sad we can't stay there anymore since we were crazy and decided to have one more child...who has four kids?!?..crazies I tell ya...


Thanks for joining in! And God bless you with 4 kids. Now that we're tasting freedom from diapers and are finally able to travel a little more...it would be hard to give that up! I do wish Disney had more options available for larger families in the budget range, although they are working on that with the new Animation Resort, I believe.

That must be it. The soothing motions of the safari jeep...

Sadly, this is true. Equally sadly, I don't have a comeback.

Nice! But how do you know it's not Steven Seagal?

I'm telling you there's a chance. Oh wait, I already used that one. Sorry.

Would you believe just mere seconds after this photo...he flopped to the ground and closed his eyes...then Kathy's bus came by and she got her shot.

I am soo busted on the promo....gotta work on being a little more subtle, obviously. But thanks for the endorsement!

One of my favorite pictures of the lion appeared in this TR installment from Blueyedgirl from a trip she took this past spring.

No better way to kill time at work than reading a good TR. I'll head over and check it out.
