What a shame that your day ended up even shorter than you expected, but it sounds like you still got a lot done. I love the photos from the safari.

Pam, sounds like you packed a lot in that very late starting day. I'm not a big fan of Kali due to getting wet. I much prefer GRR at DCA because you can run right back to your room at the VGC and change!

It did end up being a fun day. Yep, that sounds familiar. It's always me too. I think some Disney gods are listening in and turn the raft at the right moment for me to get soaked!

I just couldn't believe I messed the times up. I thought I had double and triple checked everything like usual. The only saving grace was that everything was a walk-on. If that hadn't been the case we probably would have only gotten a few rides in.

Thanks about the pictures I was disappointed that the rhinos and elephants were hiding. I just love the rhinos.

When I last went to Animal Kingdom in 2009, we were stopped for ages as the rhinos were blocking the path. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me that day.

That last hour we were hustling!!!

I've been reading my DL book, and I'm so excited to see all the different rides. It was hot enough that getting wet was refreshing, but I really don't like walking around in wet clothes. I stood up in the bus because I didn't want to leave a seat wet...

I am back and just got caught up on your TR, Pam. I know this was a hard vacation for you. Something tells me you won't be back with that same combination of people again.

Welcome back

I kept trying to just go with the flow, but I did find myself irritated a lot. Good thing is I don't think they even noticed. They had such a wonderful trip which I'm glad. It will certainly be a long time before I invite them again. Maybe when I have nieces/nephews old enough to enjoy going.

Firstly, I'm really sorry this TR is moving like molasses. Work seems to be draining me extra dry these days.

We got back to the resort around 5:50 and I had the ingenius idea to try one of the side doors so we could walk in the airconditioning. While this was still an excellent idea, we had to go up one floor to reach the main lobby to catch the CL elevators. Appetizers were out and of course we had to get some. (even though we had just finished eating lunch at 4:00) I didn't take pictures of the olives, cheeses, or veggies but those were out every evening as well.

Mom thought this was a little spicey. I didn't try it, am not much of a soup person.



I usually love mushrooms, but these were a little dry with the cracker.





I definitely steered clear of these after the other night's episode. They looked like they would have been good though.









These were over at the kids' table. I thought that was a nice touch.







After our bellies were happy we all headed down to the pool to soak in some rays. R & M enjoyed some swimming while mom read and I caught up in my journal. It was a really relaxing couple of hours. Our dinner plans were to head over to Coronado Springs and eat at the Pepper Market so we all headed upstairs around 8:00 to get ready. I couldn't find the Pepper Market's hours online so asked the CL CMs if they knew. They were so wonderful and called over to CSR for me. I was a little worried that they closed at 10:00 and that we would be pushing it since it was already 8:00, but they were open until 11:00 so we still had plenty of time. We parted ways to grab showers but not before mom and I had indulged in some desserts.

These became a favorite of mine this trip.



I never tried the brownies.



Mom and M enjoyed the cookies.













Mom liked this, I didn't try it. I had a bad encounter with panna cotta at the CG on a previous trip.





The crust made these a bit too dry for my taste.





I thought this was tasty, mom wasn't crazy about it. I learned you needed to have a taste of all the layers in one bite. Each layer seperately was a bit too strong.







Up next, hopefully sooner rather than later, a more dramatic evening than I would have liked.

Please do not rush. I usually take about 6 months over my trip reports. Trip reports are there to be savored. I love the photos of all the treats at the Club Lounge.
