I'm going to guess Pirates of the Caribbean? I love the Cropped ones. It's amazing how much I never even notice while at WDW!

I wish I had enough mental ambition for the Character Scrambles .

Round 14: Cropped

I think that is on the Great Movie Ride. That whiskey sounds familiar.

Isn't AKL amazing?! Don't forget, we own DVC at Kidani if you ever want to go back!

I love your AKL pictures! It's such a beautiful resort, every time I go there I'm amazed by how stunning it is! It must be so wonderful to have a savanna view room, but I almost feel like if I ever stay there and have a savanna room, I'll never want to leave! I love watching giraffes so much, and if they are right outside my window, forget it! That's so cute, how they just go right up to the CM's to eat!

AKL looks lovely! I'm so glad that you were enjoying your honeymoon resort so much, and that you got to take the time explore and appreciate it!

I'm gonna guess BTMRR. (my other guesses were already guessed! )

Wow, you're right, AKL is gorgeous! Another resort to add to the "must-stay" list. I am leaning towards trying for WL or BC for our next trip **fingers crossed for a good bounce back offer**, but I am definitely more interested in AKL after seeing the way you have captured it!

To answer your question from before, no, we have not eaten at Boma before, but I really think it is the ADR we are the most excited about. We have not really eaten anywhere, as my DH has only been to Disney once on a band trip, and I haven't visited since my last trip with my family in '99. So really, we haven't eaten anywhere! That's why we are so excited about our upcoming Disneymoon (and why we are already planning our next trip for August of 2013!)

Cropped guess: Definitely The Gangsta Scene (I think its Public Enemy technically) in the Great Movie Ride.

Isn't the AKL beautiful! There is just so much detail to check out- you could spend a whole week just there!

I love your purse you are carrying. What kind is it? I'm thinking of getting a new one for our honeymoon but might use my hipster purse instead.

I love the atmosphere at Animal Kingdom Lodge!

We were actually staying at Kidani Village for the very first time probably just as you guys were nearing the end of your vacation. I don't remember your dates, but I had seen things on Facebook and knew you were there around the same time we were arriving. We checked in May 27.

So exciting being on your very first vacation with just the two of you!

Cropped guess: Great Movie Ride in the Western Scene.

I love that you donate your hair! I just donated mine this morning as well. It was my 4th time to do it. I just love donating it, but as I get older I am starting to like my hair shorter!

Thank you for sharing your Disneymoon with us...it takes me back to ours!

It's not the right answer, but it's a good guess! Yeah, there really are SO many details in those parks! It just baffles me sometimes.

Haha, Google can always be your friend with Character Scramble.

Isn't AKL amazing?! Don't forget, we own DVC at Kidani if you ever want to go back!
YOU GOT IT! It is the Great Movie Ride. Weak Sauce Point for you!

Haha, I will definitely keep that in mind if, as I said on FB, you end up not going 3 times in one year!

It really is a beautiful resort! I can't imagine what it'd be like to wake up to giraffes in the morning! We had so much fun watching them, but in the long run, it was better that we didn't have a savanna view. I appreciated being so close to the bus stops! It was nice that we could just head to any viewing spot to get a view though.

I think AKL will always be special to us because it was our honeymoon resort.

Good guess!

Thank you so much! I agree! When people asked where we were going for our honeymoon, most people knew it was Disney even before we answered because it only made sense for us. There were still a few who were like, "Disney World? Really?" I guess they never fully experienced the magic!

It's definitely worth the stay! I know people complain about its distance from the parks, but I didn't have any issues with it. Maybe it was because we had never stayed on property before so wherever we stayed, it was always awesome to just get dropped off at the front and not have to park.

Mmm, I can't wait to see what you think about Boma! It was so wonderful. When I mention Boma or Sanaa, I start fantasizing about eating there once again!

Yup, you're right! It is the gangster scene from the Great Movie Ride. Unfortunately, Jen guessed earlier. Good job though!

If we were going to be relaxed at a resort, I'm glad it was AKL. I don't think a resort with a lot of busyness like on the Boardwalk would really make sense for the Disneymoon that we wanted.

Thanks! It's a LeSportsac bag. The style is called Madison, and the print is Paprika. I bought it about 2 years ago from Zappos because they were the only one that still had it in that print. I love it because I don't have to hold on to anything when walking around the parks, and I don't have to take it off and put it down in front of me when getting on rides. I used to just use a Nike drawstring bag, but it was annoying not having access to everything. I like being able to just pop my camera in the bag or pull out our tickets for FP whenever I need it.

It's wonderful! We were there at the same time!!! We didn't leave until the 29th! That stinks. If we had known, we could've met up!

Even with the pictures, I don't think anything compares to actually seeing it in real life. It's always an incomplete look!

Yup, you're correct with the cropped guess!

Thanks! I don't often find others who donate their hair too, at least not as a common thing. Good for you for doing it! Haha, I am suddenly understanding the draw of shorter hair too, but then again, it is really hot in the summer!

So glad you've joined in for my Disneymoon adventures!
