LOVE all of the character interaction! I wondered where the name for the TR came from, good one!

We have never done flights of wonder either; however, I am happy they let you in to get a great seat...looks fun!

My DS got the exact same hat with his souvie money...you can see it on DH's head in a goofy pic I took at CP in my last update!
I wonder if people aren't getting email notifications ? I know I don't get them all the time .. or I'll get a bunch at one time !

It's funny because theres this guy .. I forgot his name .. but he's a "tour guide" who is afraid of birds and he is just hilarious ! He really does make the show comical !

I think AK was the best park for the way we were treated. I mean we didn't have any real bad experiences .. but AK seemed to go beyond the other WDW parks.

After FOW was over I noticed people lining up for the Jammin Jungle Parade. This parade is not something we usually do on purpose, but I figured we might as well have a go at it and just chill for a bit. It was getting quite warm out and so I parked the stroller and I left Jeremy to keep an eye on the boys while I searched for snacks (or drinks at least).

[IMG][/IMG]

They had a few little stands .. but with weird food that none of us would eat .. so I grabbed some sodas and headed back to the boys.

The parade got under way and i was rather pleased that we decided to watch it.

Once the parade was over we decided to do Kali River Rapids. Well the boys did .. I didn't feel much like it, so I sat out. The boys grabbed their ponchos (they hate getting wet and usually skip this ride because of the potential to get soaked) and headed through the fastpass line.

I caught this video of them as they went under the bridge ..

[IMG][/IMG]

They got off the ride all smiles and loved it !

Now if you hadn't noticed, we had skipped lunch .. again .. and so by now we were pretty hungry and I knew what I wanted .. Flame Tree BBQ.
It was finger lickin' good !

[IMG][/IMG]

Now we wanted to go back to GKTW for the Halloween party .. but we had one last order of business ..

It was awesome !! I'm so glad we fit that in before we left the park for the evening !

Next up Halloween in GKTW ..

It WAS fun ! It was a great way to just relax for a bit too.
As far as EE .. I'm good for ONE ride each time .. unless I can be up front .. I found when you're up front the backwards part doesn't seem so extreme. But in any case .. it's a fantastic ride !

What great footage of all three of your boys on Kali! We tried Flame Tree BBQ this past time and it was "truly scrumptious"!

April 9th Halloween Party at GKTW

We were looking forward to the Halloween party tonight, but it was bittersweet because it was also our last night at GKTW ! I can't believe how fast the time went while we were there. I didn't want to go !!
So we got back to the Village and the boys grabbed their wands and we headed off to the party. They village was all decorated for Halloween and they were playing fun music which included the the from the Harry Potter movies which Jayden thought was SO cool !

[IMG][/IMG]

The boys were given treat bags and we went to the different candy stations to get candy. My guys aren't huge candy eaters .. so we didn't get a whole lot. Plus they both have appliances in their mouths for their teeth and have to be careful what they eat. They had a few stations set up to do crafts too .. but my boys weren't interested in that. (my boys are SO boring !)

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

We ran into Daniel and the boys WERE excited to see HIM !

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

The boys proceeded to cast various spells on each other and I was waiting for someone to grow a tail or something .. but they all came out unscathed.

We walked around a bit and met Woody Woodpecker ..

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

The woodpeckers loved the boys wands and tried to cast spells on each other ..

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

We met this cute little puppy that is a therapy dog .. SO sweet ..

[IMG][/IMG]

And then .. of course .. we had to get one last ice cream ..

[IMG][/IMG]

Once we finished with the ice cream we saw a guy using a telescope .. and he invited the boys to take a look ..

[IMG][/IMG]

After that we explored the Amberville train station since we hadn't been inside yet ..

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

It was getting late and I wanted to do some laundry before packing up for our next phase of the trip. I was surprising the boys the next morning with a surprise resort .. so we said our goodbyes to Daniel and headed back to our villa for our last sleep at GKTW ..

Thanks ! I had my camera in one hand and my Flip in the other trying to do both. The still pics didn't come out .. but I'm glad the video did .. I LOVE my Flip !!

Flame tree is one of our fav QS meals.

Daniel is a great guy .. the boys adore him ! He's also good for casting "get well" spells .. which oddly enough have worked !
It was a great last night at GKTW !
