Haha, having Yeti along creates an extra diversion. We just have to think through what he's going to do for that day. He's not always along with us taking pictures, but he is most of the time.

It's pretty amazing that the wait on NYE for one of the most popular attractions at AK was only 10 minutes! Crazazy!
I would give a lot for any Disney food right now!

I was shocked about the Safari. You're right, it's a popular attraction even when there aren't huge crowds. I was just amazed we got on so quickly.

Great update! That's strange the ventilation system makes such strange noises! I feel like that might annoy me!

That croissant looks good, I don't think I've ever had a flavored croissant, just a boring old plain one.

Animal Kingdom seems like the place to be on New Year's Eve! That was nice that you gave Megan your 'Ohana ADR!

Glad Farrell liked Animal Kingdom!

Wow, hardly anyone goes to AK on New Years, huh? Noted! I would think by noon it would be mobbed. I really REALLY want to go to WDW for New Years, it sounds like such a blast!

OMG those elephants tackling each other!!! That is so funny, I love getting the chance to see them acting up or doing something out of the ordinary... so fun!!!

You've never had a flavored croissant! Girl, you've been missing out. Put it on your list!

The Ohana reservation worked out because Megan had mentioned to me before that if I wanted to give it up, she would take it. It all worked out for the best in the end.

I was gobsmacked! Seriously, that it was so not crowded that day. Everyone else was at other parks I guess.

The safari is soooo much more fun when the animals are doing something out of the ordinary. It make for a fun experience.

I can't believe how un-crowded Animal Kingdom was on NYE! I feel kind of sorry for all those poor people in the closed to capacity Magic Kingdom.

Sounds like a great safari!

T9 can be such a pain in the butt some times! I have had quite a few awkward sentences

Love the AK tree!

Yay for a Donald ticket!! My ticket for our trip is also Donald! I was pretty excited!

Looks like a great safari! The elephants are adorable!

Congrats to Yeti on saving Red!!!!

Man, I felt bad for all of those people at the Magic Kingdom too. I couldn't imagine how that would feel.

Haha, we can call it the Disney Dining Delivery Plan. I'd sign up for it.

I can't stand autocorrect! It just replaces some words with the most bizarre options. I at least make sure I read my text before I send it off. I don't want to say something incredibly stupid.

Thankfully, it was the only restless night that I really had, so I'll take it. I think it was because of the long travel day. When I'm obnoxiously tired, I never sleep well.

I want that croissant right now too! I'm so hungry....

Um, totally love that you have Yeti updates in your TR. Fantastic.Oh Yeti.

That chocolate croissant looks so good. I do love me a chocolate croissant.

The autocorrect story was funny. That feature can be annoying though. Like seriously, some of the words are so bizarre that they replace your words with.

How cute that you got to see the elephants playing with each other. We got to see that with the giant pandas at the National Zoo once and it was so cute. I literally stood there for an hour watching them play with each other.

Hahaha, I just wanted to do something different than I had done on my other TRs. Glad that you like the Yeti updates.

I love basically anything that has any chocolate in it. I don't discriminate. It makes everything infinitely better.

I love animals when they do that. You're right, it tons of fun to just stand there and watch forever.

Sounds like a great morning!!! That chocolate croissant looks amazing!!!

Don't you LOVE autocorrect!? UGH!

I can't believe the wait for the safari was only 10 minutes!!!! What luck! I can't even get 10 minutes on a good day in January!

I'm glad Mr. Yeti was happy to take a little trip that put him back in his own element!

I can't see one either without thinking of Bella. I will make sure to remember that it's the designated DIS mascot.

They were actually making some pretty interesting noises while we were watching them.

I was completely shocked by the wait time for the safari.

Oh yes, I LOVE autocorrect.

I think you are right about that. I've never eaten at an airport restaurant where I was like "wow!"

Southwest isn't so bad. I like the fact that I don't pay for baggage, that's for sure. Frontier is always really expensive flying out of where we do. I used to fly Midwest, so it was like the same thing. I miss those cookies!

The lady at the baggage claim was just another airline passenger. But for real, at 1am, it was too much. I just wanted to tell her to shut her piehole!

The Poly rooms are massive. When we first walked in, we were both like "woah". So much room for the two of us. And we were really good, we kept it clean. I hate messy hotel rooms. There were lights inside the mysterious grass-y doors (closets). We had two of them.
Okay seriously, there is NO REASON for another passenger to do that. I would have.. glared sternly (? I don't know, it would be 1:30AM!!) at her from wherever I was. Maybe even muttered menacingly, depending on how awake I was.

How nice to hear that about the Poly! I'm kind of leery about the rooms, but I still want to stay there just to experience it. Though it seems as though most Disney resorts have a cult following, the Poly seems to have a more cult-y following (if that's even possible!).

I've read a lot of reports that Animal Kingdom (which, incidentally is one of my faves so everyone should just love it or.. something) is pretty empty on NYE because there's no party or anything. Any excuse to spend more time in Animal Kingdom is good with me!

But it's definitely better when the animals are active. You got an awesome safari! I didn't realize they had baby elephants there. I saw Lily but thought all baby elephants were fake on the safari ride (our skipper was not very good at elocution).

Oh auto-correct. Like thinking every alphanumerical combination REALLY refers to U2. Sorry iPhone/Siri, I don't like Bono that much. Glad it worked out for you!
