And with all the Earth Day stuff it's going to be extra-crowded anyway. I wonder if there's anyway I could still change ADRs around at this point and go on the 21st...hmmm. But DH really wanted to be there on Earth Day. WHY do they do this to us????

Anyway, on a more serious note, I am so sorry for your loss. We have a 13-year old Lhaso Apso who is really showing her age these last few months and I get emotional just thinking about it. But it sounds like your dog lived and long and full life, and was very loved. What more could a pet ask for? Hopefully your vacation will give you a much needed reprieve!
Thanks about the dog. We are still tearful today.

Just copied this from the main DIS site:

* 8:40 am - Opening ceremony at the Tree of Life. Speakers will include Josh D'Amaro, Vice President of Disney's Animal Kingdom; Dr. Jackie Ogden, Vice President of Animals, Science and Environment; and Joe Rohde, Senior Vice President of Walt Disney Imagineering Creative.


If the park doesn't open until 9:00, then I have to assume that this event is not open to the public? I guess I am going to ask when we are at the park earlier in our trip. I'd kind of like to sit in on something special like this.

I LOVE that feeling!!!! One year, we decided to drive to Disney (from NY). We had to get up early in the morning to hit the road and avoid traffic. We were way too excited to even sleep so we decided at around midnight since we were too excited to sleep, that we could be driving all this time! So thats what we did! We got out of bed, packed the car, and took off in the middle of the night! LOL!

I am "Miss Organization" and right now you would never know it!
We had to make the decision to put one of my dogs down last fall, and it was the hardest decision we ever made, so I understand what you're going through. We didn't want to say goodbye, but sometimes choosing to end your pet's suffering is the final act of love you can perform for them. I hope you and your family are doing okay

On a planning note, we're down to 17 days now, and it's hard for me to focus on the exams I should be studying for when I have so much packing and planning and organizing to do! Gah!

I expect it will be a similar situation as they have with Rope Drop. They'll let everyone through the turnstiles, and rope off past there until later. I never actually made it to rope drop at AK when they still did an opening ceremony, so I'm not sure how far they used to let people in.
It doesn't make a whole lot of sense for them to make the info public if they weren't going to have it open to at least a sub-group of people.
