Loving all the photos how nice the CM still let you stay, I don't think I would be comfortable leading the noises either.

That's pretty awesome that y'all were able to get front row seats! I don't blame you for not wanting to be in the show...I wouldn't have either!

That fruit salad looks really good. What all was in it?

Looks like you had a great ride on the safari with a bunch of animals!!

25 minutes for Everest wasn't bad at all!

I looked at my Disney receipts so I could remember correctly, but it was $8.99

It was actually called a "Lychee Fruit Salad", because of the white-looking fruit that's on there, which is Lychee. DD was excited to get this because of that particular fruit. We "discovered" it when we went to Peru, and DD loved it! And we don't come across it very much, so she gets it anytime she gets the chance. The only other place I have seen that fruit, is places where they have the yogurt bars that have all kinds of fruit you can mix into yogurt.

Since I've read your entire review I have a few comments:
* GREAT idea for viewing the MK parade from the platform! Awesome angle.
* I've never eaten at Tusker House so I was glad to see your review.
* We LOVE the Festival of the Lion King - you scored with those amazing seats!

I'm looking forward to reading more!

Thanks for joining my TR! We love our mom/daughter trips!
She loves Tusker House, which I think is probabaly our 2nd favorite now, with 1st place being Cape May!

They were very nice, and then along came some other families that the CM had sent over, so there was plenty of people that got the chance to do it; so I didn't feel so bad!

The fruit salad had lychee fruit, pineapple, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and kiwi. It was really good, and refreshing on that hot day!!

Loved the safari, but have lots more/better pics the 2nd time around, which I'll add soon!!!

Thanks!! I would love to go back and was even thinking of going back in November, but may have to wait until next year, because I have a feeling this is going to be a very expensive school year, with DD's graduation stuff!!!

We eventually made our way back to Kilimanjaro Safari, for the 2nd time.
It was only a 10 minute wait, and we got just the seats I wanted! I always love sitting in the very back and this time I asked if we could sit there. I seem to get better pictures because there's usually a lot you can catch when you can turn around looking behind the vehicle! As you can probably see in a few of the pics.

























A quick pic from where we were sitting




Always sleeping!!!!









Our vehicle had to stop to let a herd of elephants go by.
The baby is SOOOO cute!!!













Can you see "Pumba"??










Continued....

Our safari driver said that this was going to be a new Zebra area:











Love the waterfalls at the end!




Snack time!
DD got some African donuts (no pic of them, though)




And I got the "Brownie Paw"





We made our way over to the Finding Nemo show, as it was the last showing of the day, and we got there right at the last minute: as in running so we could get there in time and hopefully a seat !!



We had to sit towards the back, which was fine because we still had a great view!








Seen this little guy on our way out.




We left the park at closing time: 7pm



Coming up: Touring around Art of Animation!

After leaving AK, we headed back to the room for a quick "freshening up", and out to Art of Animation to tour around. We definately want to stay there on our next trip to WDW!!

I took tons of pics there, but here's a few:

















Check-in area;







At the pool area:









Laundry/Restroom area:






Cars section:










I thought this was just too cute, with the roads, etc..




Inside at the gift shop:





They have a lot of cute light fixtures, but this is the only one I got a pic of:




Arcade:













We decided to head over to DTD for something to eat, and for the FIRST time, Earl of Sandwich!!! (But definately not the last, on this trip!)

YUMMY!!



We did a little shopping, and I thought this T Shirt was funny!




We bought some snacks to take back to the hotel room.





Coming up: Next Day at DTD & Boma!!

I just read through all five pages, and it seems like the two of you really had a great time! Your pictures of Animal Kingdom are great and remind me of how magnificent that park really is.

Can't wait to read more!

What an awesome afternoon/evening!

You did get some really good shots on the 2nd safari ride. I've never thought about sitting in the back, but that's a really good idea!! I think Pumbaa was asleep in the very same spot when we saw him!!

Glad you made it in time to see Nemo!

I've never heard or seen the donuts before!

Art of Animation looks so cool! I'm like you--I definitely want to stay there, and your pictures made my want even worse! lol

So glad that you finally got to try EoS and loved it!!!
