Of course, you must realize, time was of the essence.
Their goal was not only to help Kim save the world, but to do it before their sister and uncle!
That was pretty much a foregone conclusion, though. You guys started your mission just slightly before we did, and we had the same exact clues as you did. So we were always waiting for you to finish up at your station before we approached. Boo!

Not true - there were some tasks we had that you did not and vice versa.
You're just a sore loser since we saved the world before you did!

Sorry gang - been an insane week with all the end of year Scout Stuff.
So without further ado, let's get back to the adventures!

Refreshment Cool Post

In the spot that once hailed the coming of an entire continent with a huge central tree and tribal shows, now stands yup – you guessed it – a snack bar.


With Africa being created in Animal Kingdom, I’ve always wondered why this “outpost” was never demolished to make way for another country or another theme.
But, for now, it’s an advertisement for African Coca-Cola


The secret of this place is that same advertisement.
Have your children lift some of the “iceboxes” and see what happens.
Yes, you can open them – remember, Disney is a place for exploration!
Besides hearing an icy cold can of Coke being opened with that authentic “hiss-snap,”
The opener of said box will experience the refreshment of drinking that delicious soda by getting misted.
Very nice touch on a hot day and very funny to watch the kids get surprised.


But what really brings children to the outpost (besides the slushies) is the drums.
Without further ado, please meet the next generation of Neal Peart…










I, of course, spent some time taking pictures.
Come on, if you made it this far, you should not be surprised.
After all, what else do I do?




Then Mom joined the fun.
Play those bongos!!


Alas, we were due in another country for lunch so our visit to the African continent would be a short one.
Kim was calling on the Kimmunicator and we had to save the world. Again.
Will these villains never give up?
Come join our next mission!

Sailing Around the World

We arrived at the scene of the crime and found, not a villain, but a princess.
Snow White had appeared to take pictures next to her new Wishing Well.


But as Short Round would say, “No time for love Dr. Jones!” so we pressed on.
Kim was in danger. Unfortunately X didn’t care.
So while Mom and J took our sleuths to save the world, I veered off course.
X was eyeing the sea.


Something fowl was definitely afoot here!
Okay, okay, that was bad.
But these pics were pretty good…






It was a nice relaxing tour of the World Showcase Lagoon.
X was such a good little passenger that he was presented with a Friendship Launch Co-Captain License!


On the boat, my friend called and we had to re-arrange some of our plans.
It seems they filled up too much on breakfast at Akershus and were going to wait a bit on lunch.
No problem – we simply changed our ADR for 10 people to 2 separate ones and hopefully we’d overlap a bit.

But while we were sailing around the world, Mom and DS were off fighting crime.
Meet Agent M! (Yes, we're excited these missions will soon have Agent P calling the shots!)


Somewhere else in Deutschland, DD and J were frantically trying to complete their missions as well.
But I’ll leave that recap up to J…

The kids look like they were having so much fun playing those drums! Cute!

Nice pics throughout

We've been saying for quite awhile that they needed to change KP to an Agent P theme so we're pretty excited too. Caitlin and Dale love Phineas and Ferb

I had no idea they gave out Friendship launch licenses. That's pretty neat.

Great picture of all 3 kids playing the drums!

KP: Germany, Saved

So, off we went to take in some of the hidden sights in Germany while trying to help Kim Possible with saving the world, one pavilion at a time.

Professor Dementor, mad scientist that he is, took over a pretzel factory to make delectable treats that will bring the eaters under his control. (I definitely have a problem, then, as I love to eat pretzels! Uh oh! )

First up, we went, I think, to Der Bucherwurm, where they sell all sorts of
items, including beer steins. We needed to find a specific display of beer
steins on the mantel. Given the entrance we came in, this actually took a
minute or so to locate, despite it being as prominent as it is. (Hey, it's a
relatively small store and was somewhat busy.) Anyone else think of
the “Cliff Hangers” game from The Price Is Right when they hear this?


Here's the "Cliff Hangers" song
Well, maybe not, now that I hear it again. (It's been a few years, after all,
since I last watched TPiR.)

Next was the Volkskunst Shop. Amid all the different hand-painted eggs and
cuckoo clocks, we had to find just the right cuckoo clock to be able to
advance on our mission.


Next, we were off to Die Weihnachts Ecke (their Christmas store) to find the
nutcracker on a high shelf. We needed to figure out and then use the code to
get further along in our mission. Unfortunately, as you'll hear for yourself, a
certain someone decided that was the perfect moment to
call me on my cell phone.

Mercifully enough, though, despite the distraction - the ring covering up the
tune and the shoddy camerawork as I fumbled to silence my phone - I
managed to catch the code that we needed to proceed with the mission.

We also needed to find the large model railroad which, while kind of neat to
look at, the video I attempted to take of it is too lame to post. And
that's saying something, given the video of the nutcracker!

Finally, naturally, the finale. We were supposed to stand back outside the
Volkskunst Shop, input the necessary code, and see what happens. Much to
the surprise of several of the visitors in the courtyard area, visible in the
musical glockenspiel above the Sussigkeiten was this display, flushing out
Professor Dementor:


We saved Germany from the mad scientist , and just in time, for our
lunch ADR was almost ready. Good thing, too, given the yummy pretzel
bread that we were all salivating for.

If it wasn't clear, each of those images is a link to the videos J took of the Germany Kim Possible Mission.

No pics - just videos of this one.
J was too busy trying to actually play the game!

In my defense, I was busy spending my cruise around the world rescheduling our lunch plans.
After getting called by my friend, I had to call Mom and figure out when she wanted to reschedule lunch.
I then called J to see what he thought so we were all on the same page.

It's not my fault he can't parallel process.
And in this case, all he had to do was see a 4-letter word while listening to me on the phone
(which by the way he caught on film so he could even look later if he needed to).
It's not like I was calling for him to perform rocket science...

I love those beer steins. I crack up just looking at them (cause I can't the video to play - have no idea why). Ok - I must admit, I was on my third adult beverage the time I did this mission so thank you for refreshing my memory as to the end of the mission.
