What a perfect last day!!!
So happy that you share my love of AKV Not that I have not loved my last two stays at BCV but I have missed the pool, lush greenery and quiet surroundings. And speaking of music coming through the impatients I like the music at the Kidani pool too...the nature noises and such

Serenity in a to go cup! I am soooooo getting a traveler for the road (walk ) next time!!! I just love BZ Except for walking by the dancing fish. They kind of freak me out.

Cruise?? On Friday?? What are the ports for this one? I would rather be at CC basking in the sun over shopping with the masses any day!!! How exciting!!

What a perfect ending to your trip!!! I, too, the pool at Kidani. It is probably my favorite on property. We had so much fun there.

I agree, there does appears to be more animals on the savannah at Kidani. There was a whole herd of wildebeast while we only one on the Arusha savannah at Jambo!

Ooo, both of us are leaving Friday!

I so look forward to sleeping in on Friday then maybe taking in a movie or something!
Oh I agree, I guess it is easier to just head out late at night, but I am am traditionalist!!! I can't stand in line unless it is really black FRIDAY !!! So many places are opening uber early!! But I hear you on the waiting in line that evening BEFORE the store opens!!!

I'm going to have to agree with Anita, although night owl I'm not, I'm actually looking forward to head out to line up at 10pm instead of waking up at 3am!!! We have a new tv on our list so me, a good book, and my phone will keep me entertained as I wait!!
That is so funny, but you are right, electronics tend to be the good deals for the doorbusters! I just laugh b/c if everyone is opening at midnight I would be stressed about which to go to first!!!! I have a circuit I take since things were opening within an hour of eachother... I could go first to Toys R US... they opened the earliest, then over to the shopping area where they have Target, stand in line there for opening, then Home Depot, 30 minute window, then Michael's another 30 minute window! And lastly my local hallmark store b/c I can get my Jim Shore Santa for 40% off!!!! It was a mission to be certain! Of course I am never buying electronics, just toys and stuff, so everyone is in the queue to get the Blue Ray or TV, and the cashiers are sitting there twiddling their thumbs, so I can get in and out relatively quickly!!! I don't TOUCH Best Buy.... I see that mess on TV the night before and won't go near there!!!! LOL!!! Toys R Us is about as "crazy" as it gets for me, and frankly that is crazy enough!!!!

YOU KNOW IT!!!!! I was SO excited you don't know the half of it. I was like YES, NOW, PLEASE!!!!!

The fish, it took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about.... LOL, they do kinda dance there on their spits!!!!!

Believe me, Serenity to go make the walk so much nicer....

Great wrap-up to your trip! Those Kidani pictures are so fun! You have put a wrench in my planning! I want to stay there now! Of course, you know it only takes a few well-placed photos of giraffes and lounge chairs to have me rethinking things.

Undoubtedly something about teeth and the various animals that may or may not exist in Africa... Quite the imagination this one has

SORRY... I know I know.. I am going back and forth myself. Just want to find the best place available, so I will take anything! But that AK is just so lovely and peaceful.

I have to get myself in order too! Your reports I am going to need to catch up on as well! I will have a lull in the DIS fun soon, so it will give me time to catch up, writing my cruise report will be easy. I want it done by December's end!!!

Hi HD, remember me?

I'm so sorry I feel off the face of the earth, I have just been insanely busy, I never should have agreed to be a board member for the basketball booster club. It is a ridiculous amount of work, and there are only two of us doing the vast majority of it - soooooo frustrating!

Anyway, things have calmed down a bit so I hope I'm back for good. Not sure what you guys think about still doing a TR from October, seems strange to start one now, 2 months later, but I'm game if you guys still want to do one That is, if you didn't just do one without me in my absence, and I wouldn't blame you one bit if you did!

oh my goodness, I feel like I kept looking to see if you'd started this and clearly TOTALLY missed the boat!

I mean ship.

What an amazing check in experience and lovely lazy first day. I really want to see that show, it just looks fabulous. I do think you are correct and it will be a Magic exclusive though. You are brave, I'm not sure I could handle 7 days in an inside cabin with all those boys.

I love that cheese platter, we only did it once and we both were going "why didn't we do this earlier?"

St Maarten looks perfectly dreamy...I'd love to be on that beach right now. Ok maybe not right now is all my post holiday gluttony glory but...soon. I can't wait to see what you think Magic versus the Dream overall. It looks like a really wonderful cruise so far!
