Great updates, Lisa.

You had me going with the rats and snakes...I figured they let the rats go for the snakes to eat.

We've never done House of Blues...it looks yummy.

I have to admit that Mark did not like Cirque du Soleil at all, and when I saw it with my friend, Shelley, I fell asleep about 1/3 of the way through it. But I have to admit she and I had been drinking ALL day (we hit every casino down the strip and had a drink or two at each...and you can walk down the street with your drinks).

What a nice surprise for the kids, and I'm glad they enjoyed it.

I have heard of several schools having scares. Sad.
That is terrible about the tree falling and how she lost power and all but glad she at least has power back.
LOL. Nice Dinosaur pic.
I have never seen the rat pot.
House of Blues is where I had my first Po’ Boy. It was good.
What a nice surprise, can I travel with you? LOL
Great updates and pics.

The food looks yummy, and I know the performance was great! Bummer that EE was closed.

So glad Mom was okay, and hope the wires are all reconnected by now.

Too bad about EE, but it sounds like a nice day at Animal Kingdom regardless.

Love the Dinosaur photo as usual

My one irrational fear is rats. That planter freaked me out even in photos

HoB sounds great! DH and I have eaten at the one in Chicago before and really enjoyed it. That'll have to go on our list of possible ADRs now.

Yay for pulling off the Cirque surprise! I can't wait until Maddie is a little older and will enjoy it.

Love the dress you wore that night!

Just getting caught up on your TR, looks like you had a great rest of the day at AK. Love the Dinosaur Pic, it does look like that guy in the back row is joining in!

I really liked La Nouba when I went to see it, it isn't my favorite Cirque show but it's a good one. I have also seen Mystere in Vegas - my fave, and touring shows Dralion and Alegria, if you ever get to Vegas, Mystere is EXCELLENT!

Glad you had a nice Christmas, that's crazy about your Mama's tree and the electric wires, must have been scary!

A little late, but Merry Christmas! I'm glad that you had a nice visit with Lacey and Jesse. Are they still around or have they headed back home? Wishing them safe travels. Of course there was a little excitement- I'm so glad to hear Mama was ok. I'm sure it was scary for her.

What a nice couple of updates! You had a wonderful end to your visit to AK. The dinosaur picture is a riot!

Thanks for sharing the pictures of the enhanced planters. That is so cool! Like others, I have never noticed them before. Good job spotting them!

All the meals at House of Blues looked yummy, and I see what you mean about the portions! Holy Moley!

What a fantastic surprise taking your family to see Cirque! Have you seen the advertisements for the new 3D movie? Will you be going to that?

I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas( a bit late) and a Happy New year! I am so happy for you that Lacey and Jesse came home for a few days. I had my whole family here also. And that brings me to some good news...we talked it over and planto go to WDW next Dec for an early Xmas and to see all the lights and decorations. That has been on my wishlist for awhile! So now the planning can begin. My other big news is that I am officially retired from my fulltime job. I have a small antigue business but no more going to an office everyday. Since it is winter I will not miss driving in the snow but I will miss all the great people I dealt with.

I would have had a hard time choosing between those two desserts! They both looked so yummy!!

From your description it really does look like you had great seats at Cirque du Soleil! I haven't seen La Nouba, but I've seen two other Cirque shows (Dralion & Totem) and they were both amazing. That was an awesome gifts for the kids.

First, I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas!

Great updates! I love the FOTLK pics..they turned out better than mine ever do!

We are getting so excited about our trip in April. We won't be on the DDP so we are looking for a few good places to eat....the House of Blues looks fabulous. That will have to go on the list of places to consider!

I'd love to see Cirque one day!!! But I'm not gonna do it until the girls are old enough to enjoy or we have someone that we can have babysit for us!

Scary about Mama's house! Glad that you guys are otherwise okay. We got some of the snow spun off from that storm up here in Illinois, but nothing too bad.

I was a part of your trip report in the beginning and then took a hiatus from the DISboards for awhile. I'm back though and all caught up! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas!

House of Blues looks delicious! We've never even thought to make a reservation there, but now I'm thinking about it.

How awesome that yall surprised the kids with Cirque tickets! I've always wanted to see that, but we'll have to wait until the kids are a lot older or we have another set of hands that can watch them.
