Sorry I missed your send off! But I am sure you are going to have a wonderful time at Aulani. Can't wait for a new TR!

Looks like it was a fantastic morning taking in the sights from your standard-view balcony. If only you'd been able to get a savanna view instead...

Very cool to confirm the Bell Whisperers out there, too!

Finally getting around to some comments...

Love this. People must've thought they were VIPs. (Which they are, of course.) It's great to read that they loved the tour.

I do this too, and sing the beginning of The Lion King, but for the gibberish words that I can't understand I substitute "Pennnnn-sylvania! The Keystone state."

The kid may have brown eyes but he was dead serious and maintains to this day that this was the best park day ever.

SCORE!

And frankly, they all seemed to feel the same. It was perfect from start to finish and it wasn’t quite over!
This is awesome to read! So great. And you hadn't even done the night-vision goggles yet, which are cool.


Oh yeah, I'm glad that you got to see the Nemo show...you got some great pictures.

Great picture. I wasn't even there, yet it puts me in the moment.

I would've been a little nervous that there might have been a giant ark that they were heading to.

Very relaxing morning, and what a great "standard" view!

Hi new here and stopping in to say great trip report!!!

I lurked on DIS some planning for our DW trip a couple weeks back, and when we came back I was having Disney withdrawal, so what did I decide to do??? Come back here and read trip reports of course

Anyway, I loved your TR so much that now I am obsessed with taking a Disney cruise, much to the horror of my husband But for now I am a women on a mission!

Have a great trip in Hawaii!

Yak & Yeti has the best burger.
Nice Finding Nemo pics.
Looks like a delicious meal at Y&Y. Loved the pics as headed out with an empty park and rain. I enjoy rainy days (sometimes).
The savannah whisperer. LOL. That is funny.
I hope you have a great trip.

Not a bad way to spend your last morning of vacation.

I kind of wondered about that when I heard they were being removed from the Safari for that reason. They always seemed fine at AKL.
