Sounds like a very nice day in AK!

I really need to find this Dawa bar when we're there & get one of those drinks. Maybe it will help me to like AK better.

Can't wait to hear where y'all are going for dinner that night.

Your days are shaping up nicely.


I think I'm with you on the Dawa bar scene. It's one of the many things I still haven't done at AK. I'm so looking forward to knocking some things off my list there.
Dawa is one of them and so are the tigers!! Can you believe I've never seen the tigers?!?

Still lifting y'all up in prayer, hang in there and let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Kathy! Finally made it back over here. Am I forgiven???

You and Mark are still in my thoughts and prayers with Mark's DM and your DB! Even though Mark accepts what is ahead with his Mom, I know personally it is still tough on him! Sorry to hear things aren't getting any better with your DB! Hopefully he will get good news on a possible transplant!

Yep, we'll both be doing our "own" ride; I can't handle Rock & Roll and he is afraid to do the Tower of Terror after his neck surgery.
I guess Markís surgery affects him more if his neck gets the feeling of compression or elongation more than side to side. As for you not riding RnR..........

RnR is one of my two favorite coasters at Disney.

I am open to all suggestions for what to drink or eat at 50's; it's been at least 12 years since we've been there so I'm sure there is a lot new.
Okay, I guess I really need to get on that TR update for 50ís PT donít I???

This is the one ADR that the boys always ask if we are doing on our trips. They love this place. We really get into the atmosphere and the food is always wonderful! I can personally attest to the Pot Roast, the Fried Chicken and the Chicken Pot Pie! Sounds like I need to try the sample platter next time so I can check out the Meat Loaf. During the October trip, Magdalene got the PB&J milkshake and thought it was really good. I got to try a little of it and agreed.

Sounds like Mark and I would get along well! RnR and EE!!!! Surprised with his neck that Mark ventures onto EE, but I guess that is more of the being familiar with what to expect. That trip backwards always jerks my head around a lot and is difficult to fight against at times. Now Dinosaur with all the bouncing, I could certainly understand Mark being hesitant to ride if that is the part that bothers his neck after the surgery.

Okay, so which drink is that? I guess I need to try a little more of the Dawa Bar offerings! They look really good but rather small. Iím sure they would disappear really quickly on a hot day! I guess sharing would be a waste of time............

I'm kind of the opposite of you... I never really cared for AK, but now that we have kids, I can see it becoming a park we'll spend more time in if they're interested in the animals. I can usually go ride the Safari, ride Everest a few times, ride Dinosaur, grab lunch at Flame Tree and I'm ready to leave. Maybe I need to add Dawa bar to the list too...

I need to make a point to ride Dinosaur next time we're there. Last time, I didn't ride it because I didn't want DW to have to wait outside for me. I know it is a jerky ride, but I guess I don't remember it being as bad as it's reputation.

Yay for the trip being paid!! It really is the best feeling. Will there be more than the two trips in your future? And how sweet is Andy? You raised the nicest boys.

Your AK day looks great. Mark pretty much hates it there. Max likes it. I really enjoy it, too. I think it has a lot to offer, especially if you're willing to ride EE multiple times, which I am...so... What was that drink from the Dawa bar? It looks yummy!

So I'm reading up on your plans to watch Wishes, then follow it up with characters and cool drinks in AK the next day, and the only thing I can think of is how much you guys need this trip. Hope the wait flies by for you.

Great plans for Day 3! AK was never my favorite park either, it still isn't, but I have learned to love it! It's just so beautiful, and I love seeing the animals! And the Festival of the Lion King is one of the best shows I've ever seen!

The Dawa Bar sounds awesome, I really have to remember to stop there in November, we always skip it!

Getting caught up here...so sorry for the health issues for your brother.

It sounds like you know what you want to order at 50s PT but I wanted to recommend asking for Cooper if you are up to some hilarious antics and a perfect dose of sarcasm. I love that place!

As for your plans at AK, your photos reminded me that I really want to do the safari. I can't believe that I have never been on that attraction!

I wish you all the best and hope you have a great day!

Sounds like a great day at the Animal Kingdom! Hunter and I could wander all the various trails all day long but John would rather sit and people watch. The drink from Dawa Bar looks wonderful!

Thanks, Amanda. You must go to Dawa Bar...it is so good. And perhaps you are right and it will make you like AK better...but, maybe you'll need a couple of those drinks.

You absolutely must do both!

Still lifting y'all up in prayer, hang in there and let me know if there is anything I can do for you.
Thank you for the continued prayers.

Nothing to be forgiven, my friend.You just be sure to give that son of yours a "stay safe hug from me!"

I guess Markís surgery affects him more if his neck gets the feeling of compression or elongation more than side to side. As for you not riding RnR..........

I really think it is because he knows what to expect on RnR. And, I get such a headache after I ride it that I just can't do it. And, to tell you the truth, my neck has been killing me for three days...hoping I don't have what he had.

RnR is one of my two favorite coasters at Disney.
Okay, I guess I really need to get on that TR update for 50ís PT donít I???

Um....yeah, that would be nice; I do live in nine weeks you know!!!!

This is the one ADR that the boys always ask if we are doing on our trips. They love this place. We really get into the atmosphere and the food is always wonderful! I can personally attest to the Pot Roast, the Fried Chicken and the Chicken Pot Pie! Sounds like I need to try the sample platter next time so I can check out the Meat Loaf.

Sounds yummy. I don't like peanut butter so know milkshake for me.

And make sure you blow the paper wrapper off the end of your straws at
your Cousins........



Famous last words...........

Marriage in 2014; two years of school left for Alisha and THEN a baby! At least that is what they promise me. Although I wouldn't mind one sooner...but she really should finish school first.

Wishes is definitely a special treat! One of my favorites also!

I am sure you and Mark would hit it off big time. Yes, that drink did go down rather smooth and quickly.

I think it all depends on the kids. The park has really grown on me. You must do Dinosaur again...it's so much fun. And so is Dawa Bar.

I think AK is a place you like or you don't. Now, EE multiple times, I don't think so (I won't even do it once).

Hi, there.

The drink at the Dawa Bar was a pina colada that had a strawberry or raspberry flavor to it (sorry can't remember for sure since it was almost six months ago ).

Thank you, Lisa. I hope you and Megan are feeling better.

EE...not for me, but Mark loves it. And I can always shop.
