I LOVE your pictures! The sunset and nights pictures are fantastic, and I of course love the animals ones in AK. They make me even more excited for my trip in less than 2 months

Thanks!!! I'm so jealous that you will be at WDW soon. For the first time in a looong time, I have no trips planned in the foreseeable future.

I had forgotten to mention that I had lunch at Tusker House & it was AWESOME. I loved everything I tried there. They had a white pearl couscous with basil that was tied for my favorite food of the entire trip.













































You guys may wonder why you see the safari sequence a few times. Well, I had to ride THREE times to get any good photos. The first time, they put me in the middle of 2 other parties of people & the second they put me next to a guy who was SO big that he literally blocked any chance of a good photo out one of the sides of the safari vehicle. Since it was late in the day, I was fortunate enough to be able to ride with a minimal wait.







Continued in next post...

I apologize for all of the cheetah photos- there are too many & a lot of them are blurry. It's just that I have never seen them awake & walking around, so I was excited to get the chance to take photos of them!

I was so happy to see the female lion sitting up so I could get a good photo- I was totally unprepared for the male lion walking around after we turned the corner- it was awesome to see him while he wasn't asleep for a change!

After the last safari, I took the bus back to YC & walked over to Epcot for dinner at La Hacienda. I have some photos that I took with my point and shoot camera, but I haven't uploaded them yet. I had the veggie tacos with roasted corn. The meal was pretty good, but the sauces that they give you with the tortilla chips are both horrendous.

That's all I have for now, but I will continue with Thursday as soon as I can. Have a great Holiday!

April, you can NEVER have too many pictures of giraffes. Or beautiful tigers. Or regal lions. They are just stunning.

I hope you have a great holiday, and look forward to more beautiful pictures.

Best pictures I have ever seen of the safari! Boy that lion needs some meat on his bones. He is usually laying down in all the other pics I have seen so I didn't realize how skinny he is!

Loving this....

Thank you!! The lion does look pretty thin. I wonder how old he is. Disney should have a website that lists all of the animals at AK & their stats. Plus they could have cameras set up so people can check what their favorite animals are doing at any given time on any day. Wouldn't that be a fun site?? If they ever created that, I would never leave my PC!

Thank you!! I have NEVER seen the male lion do anything more than lift his head before, so I was really excited.
