Let's plan on getting together when you get back from DL - I really want to hear about that trip since we are going in Feb. We leave in 2 weeks for DW and I think by the time we get back, you will have left for DL.

Either preceded or followed by some GCV construction photo documentation. Given the time frame...preceded by. Unless you watched the Electric Boat parade with said tropical concoction in hand.

Okay, thanks to some some help from eandesmom, and how you have mentioned before how special the water parade is, and that you headed out of AK in time to catch the fireworks at MK.....................

I'm going with a trip to the Poly and taking in both of those events from the beach...........since this would be a fairly new experience for you......

Plus after a long drive during the day, sounds like a great way to make a quick escape after everything is over so you can get back to your room.

What a great time so far at AK. I love the safari, I wonder when the new zebra area will be open? I hope I get to see it!
Safari, EE, and Dinosaur... all my favourites in AK!

The last hour the park is open is really nice. I think most people leave after the parade and that usually leaves a couple of hours of low crowds.

I have not heard when the zebra area will be ready.

I really got a lot done in a short amount of time at AK.
