Yeah Momma was very upset that her new white top was destroyed. But she got lucky and got to go backstage in Disney even it was was only to use the bathroom

It really is amazing there at Xmas. The decorations alone are fantastic! When we came home the decorations in our home town and capital city were such a let down compared to disney. No dancing lights or anything over here

The Pangani trail is a lot of fun as well… most of the time… ummmmm….
Your mom was having a fairly difficult morning now wasn’t she?
May that nonsense not continue any farther (and may it not include any chance encounters with unsocial tigers).

Looking forward to the next installment!
I would definately go back in holiday time prob same time of year but I'd really like to go back for last week in october and first week in november to get the halloween and xmas decorations in

I'm trying to remember what comes next I think it gets better for her.
Tusker house was fun but I think we went to late.

I felt kinda bad for Mam she was very upset over her white top and it was fairly unpleasant for her. I think it came out when she got home and washed it but she was afraid it wouldn't.

Beware of unsocial Tigers?!

Day 2, part 4:

After getting photopass pics and what not we headed to the ruins of an ancient temple in the form of the Maharajah Jungle Trek!
We had to be very careful though because there were Tigers about:

First we had a game of odd duck out:

Then we round the corner and sure enough there was a Tiger lurching:

I think he was feeling a little anti-social that day however because he would not pose for pictures. At least Lilly's daddy posed instead!
Then I had a little bit of a slow moment because I took this picture thinking oooh pretty:

and didn't spot this guy and girls until the CM said he's a bit of a player with the three ladies:

Someone else was apparently feeling (and looking) a bit grumpy that day as well:

But there was some very pretty bird houses on this trek and I kinda want one for my garden:

After that scary encounter with the anti-social Tiger it was time for a snack in the form of:

hmmmm Mickey Ice-cream sandwich bar!
After filling up on Mickey's ice-cream we headed on over to Dinoland USA to check out the area and it was even decorated for Christmas:






I wandered the shop there as well for a bit while I was waiting for a certain doggy to take a snack break and spotted this guy:

Who knew Dinosaurs wore santa hats?!!
Some super cool disney food:

This dude would not wait for a picture which made me sad:

But this guy came back out for a picture and I think I was third in line so no huge wait:

When I went back to Momma (she won't do character pics) some strange man had come over to her and given her a Disney button (those where her words) and I was like aws I want one where is the strange man. She gave me hers instead:

After that we said goodbye to Dinoland USA:

and headed off to find a spot to watch the parade.



Next up Jingly fun in the Jungle.

Jingly fun in the jungle

Day 2, part 5:

On our way out of Dinoland we tried to see the Winnie the Pooh characters but CM sent us away because they had gone for snacks so I went and got pics with these guys instead:


We then wandered up to the gates of Africa and sat on a bench outside the first-aid/childcare place and I wandered another one of the shops while we waited for the parade since it was fairly quiet in that area. It was a great place to sit for the parade because it never really got busy there that day and parade came straight down out of Africa. But that's a side note for now while I was waiting I took pics in the shop to pass the time.
Duffy for 2011

and he got a new hoodie for 2012:

Cute Christmas tree:

I thought these were cute:

There was a Mickey mouse one with Pluto pj's and slippers on.
I also like how they made the girl bug (name?) a Disney princess :

While I was doing all that Momma was sat on a bench outside making a little friend for herself. She sat beside a mother who had a handicapped child with her. The little girl had got a Peter Pan playset in the shop and was sharing all the pieces with Momma. They moved on once her sister and daddy came back from wherever they had been and then it time for the Jingle Jungle Parade:


I like how they even decorated the big animal floats:


Poor Donald's on the naughty and nice list. Santa just couldn't make up his mind



After the parade we went to sit down and decide where to next and a lady told us we dropped our autograph book behind the bench. It wasn't ours but we figured it was prob belonging to the little friend Momma had made because at one point when they were beside us the stroller toppled over so it prob fell off it then. Anyway we took it with us hoping we'd meet them along the way and if not we would hand it into lost and found.


Next up land of the 555 Christmas Trees

I love all your photos and the parade. You got some fun trek photos as well. I never seem to be able to go through there leisurely with the family, and I didn't even walk through it in Aug, since our time was limited for the most part.

We don't really do the big rides ever so we do shows and the trails in Animal Kingdom instead. They're nice except I wanted to see how big Lilly was and never got time to go back!

Bumping back up the question about 12 inch Duffy and does anyone know where one might get clothes for 12 inch Duffy. The outlet store was selling them naked and DN10 is looking for clothes for him because the build a bear clothes are to big!

Also does anyone else have cd of Magic in the streets? I got one when I was there in December and it the music plays fine on my dvd player but it won't read on my computer. I wondered if this was just due to copyright but I wanted to put it on my ipod

I meant to answer this yesterday. Lisa has 12 inch Duffy...she just uses the BAB clothes...yes, they are a bit big, but they do work! Of course, Lisa also puts her BAB clothes on her AG doll..she isn't picky, as long as they have clothes... and she knows that is all we can afford, so she makes do...Maybe someone has a pattern and your niece could have some made??? That would be GREAT!

3000 pictures!!!!! You go!

Really enjoying all your AK pictures. Its my favorite park and you got some great and unique shots. I was just there a few weeks ago and now I can't wait to go edit my trek pictures after seeing your. I loved the mahalarjah trek and it was wonderful to be able to enjoy it in the cooler weather.

Keep those pictures coming!!!!!

Didn't you just love the Christmas parade?

Great pictures. I loved the details of the Jungle Trek. DW said she wants one of those bird houses.

I didn't even notice the dinosaur with the santa hat when we were there. I must not have been paying enough attention when we were in Dinoland.

I'm glad you are doing a TR, you have a great way of "telling" about your trip!

I really need to get back to the Tiger trek, it always seemed to get skipped, along with the bird show.


Love the parade pics, it looks so festive!

I think DN10 prob just wants Disney Duffy clothes... May have to explain she'll have to make do and get the bigger Duffy for her birthday.

If anyone reading can make Duffy clothes let me know though.

I like taking pictures of things I like.. Lots of pictures! I also took six video tapes of footage in past years that has been only been three so looking forward to getting stuck into them and making holiday dvds but waiting for photopass to arrive to start that. Will prob rip a few more pics off the video footage as well

Animal Kingdom is one of our take it easy parks hence starting with it.

Thank you. I loved the bird houses they were cool looking.

The dinosaur with Santa hat was inside the shop in Dinoland not sure what it was called. I was killing time because CM sent me away from Pluto line. He wasn't going to let people form a wait line when Pluto was going in for a snack!

Thanks. Trip report lets me hold onto Disney for a bit longer while I try figure out finances and times for when I can go again

We totally missed the Tiger Trek the passed three times we went so I made it my main mission to visit that this year!

The parade was so cute with all the Xmassy stuff. That of course was timid though compared to the rest of the Xmas stuff in the other parks wow factor

Land of the 555 Christmas Trees

Day 2, part 6:

This trip report is going to be alot longer than I thought! Part 6 of first park day and i'm not finished yet. Firing these up this week though for two reasons first the day 2 pics are all sitting in photobucket waiting for their story to be told and secondly I'm going back to college next week so won't have as much time to update as often and another 14 days to get through so lots of Xmassy Disney fun for a while

Anyways back to trip report
After parade we headed down to Camp Minnie Mickey to meet a few friends and Camp Minnie Mickey was of course decorated for Xmas.

There was loads of Christmas trees there hence the land of 555 Christmas trees title for this update (although there may not have technically been 555 Christmas trees but there was alot for one area of the park ) There was basically a Christmas tree for many Disney characters:
Chip and Dale:

Meeko:

Pocahontas:

Pluto:

I guess Country bears?


Nemo:

The Lion King:

No idea but hey it's another Xmas tree:

Lilo:

and finally ( for now) Stitch:



Next up Visiting old friends and the white bus!

I know what you mean. I started writing up more of my TR in Word today and ended up with about 3 pages for not quite all of day 1. I'm going to have to do some edit work so that I don't bore everyone.

Thanks for posting the pictures of the trees. We didn't get to spend a lot of time in Camp Minnie Mickey. That was something I was really looking forward to.
