You had awesome animal mojo to say the least!

Your safari pics turned out a-maz-ing! I, too, didn't miss the little red bit or any of the old storyline. I like the new, more informative safari!

YAY for updates!

Wow Wow Wow - You got the lion up and moving and roaring?????? I would call that MAJOR pixie dust. Love all your pictures. They are so crystal clear. Love the early morning resort shots. Lovely.

And I love your Oscar. I think he has to be the cutest kitten on earth! Seriously adorable.

Ugh to the people hogging the picture site. Who does that? Really?

Johnny's working at the airport and the other day they found a tiny kitten in the garbage can! They think he got in trying to get food.

No one else could/would take him and Johnny and I couldn't see him left out in the cold, so of course he came home with us.

Presenting, Oscar!

Johnny got him to the vet on Thursday and they were extremely happy at how healthy he is! Definitely a boy, he had his first vaccinations, de-wormer and flea meds (not that he had signs of either, just a precaution!) The vet had a hard time hearing his heart beat for the purring.

He's a snuggle bunny but loves to play, so far hates the dogs (but slowly warming up to them) and likes Harry, the other cat. He's eating and drinking very well too. And he's even learning to pose for the camera!

So that's my exciting news, now onto the replies! And then hopefully a new update!

---------------------------------------------------------------
He's adorable! My puppy's name is Oscar!

Yup, I was counting myself pretty lucky! Johnny said "Until now I thought it was stuffed!"

Up, moving, roaring, it was amazing for sure. I'm telling you, pixie dust was on our side!
Also, thanks


And I love your Oscar. I think he has to be the cutest kitten on earth! Seriously adorable.
Aww thanks, he's awfully cute! Tonight he was really playful and was playing with this blue feather toy we bought him, so adorable. I was just melting. And when he got really tired, he climbed me, nestled into my shoulder, leaned on my ear and turned on the motor. He's going to be a little lover!

Ugh to the people hogging the picture site. Who does that? Really?
I know, right?

Awww, cute! I've always liked the name Oscar, for my little trash can kitty it's particularly suitable!

Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Oscar is gorgeous. So glad he is such a friendly, affectionate kitten. Love the association with his name.

STUNNING PANGANI AND SAFARI PICTURES!

The cheetahs are usually tough to spot out back in the trees but you got an amazing picture.

And the lion? Shut up! Walking around and roaring! How cool is that!?! What a beautiful animal!

Love the baby elephants, too!

Okay, the safari isn't a must do for us, in fact we usually skip it but seeing those AMAZINGLY AWESOME photos (I feel like using the word pictures just doesn't do them justice) makes me want to take a ride when we're there NEXT WEEK!

Oh, and apparently I was wrong with my guess as to what you were going to do next.

Also, maybe you could just come on our trips with us and just take all of the pictures. Seriously, you guys are talented! Just sayin' it's a pretty good idea...

P.S. Love, love, love the wittle kitty! We have two brown tabbys and we find ways to include them in nearly every conversation we have. We love them! We keep joking that we're going to get another one but I'm allergic (thankfully a seasonal allergy pill does the trick) and I don't like the cat hair.

Thank you! He's currently trying to type for me, I think he's trying to say thank you as well.

I could not believe our luck with the animals, we were being followed by pixiie dust for sure!

Oh you definitely should do the safari next week! When we went in Nov. 2010 we had a great safari too, the animals were so much more active in the cooler weather!

Oh, and apparently I was wrong with my guess as to what you were going to do next.

Also, maybe you could just come on our trips with us and just take all of the pictures. Seriously, you guys are talented! Just sayin' it's a pretty good idea...
I'm game, if it means more trips for me!! Hahaha but thank you.

We keep joking that we're going to get another one but I'm allergic (thankfully a seasonal allergy pill does the trick) and I don't like the cat hair. Ugh, allergies suck! Johnny is allergic to animals and hay and trees. We live in the country with horses and dogs and cats. Luckily he only gets bad in the spring and an allergy pill helps him as well.

Oh Wow... those were some amazing safari pictures... the giraffes-just gorgeous...and the lion roaring... that must have been amazing... I'll bet that added just that special Disney touch to the whole experience...

Poor wildebeests ... never going to live down that Mufasa episode...

Oscar is just... too cute for his own good...

On the opposite wall, sketches of the characters are larger than life. This is the beginning -- of a movie and of your vacation. The concept art is amazing and so intriguing, just seeing how all the characters started out! Some have come a long way!











(Can you tell I was excited for my Little Mermaid room?)



We walked up to the Online Check In line...





... and were quickly escorted to a desk with a lovely CM who was earning her ears. She had us checked in and ready to go in no time! I wanted to tell her she did a great job, she was so nervous! Her hands were actually shaking! We thanked her many times and were on our way to the Little Mermaid rooms.

Cont. in next post!
I LOVE ALL THE PICTURES IVE SEEN.
I'd consider giving up AKL. It's so pretty....

We left off last walking down a rainy Main St. Before we start, this whole evening I was armed with my little point and shoot camera and it was raining. That means? Blurry photos! YAY!

Sunday, September 16
"Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust"

We made a plan this Magic Kingdom day. We planned to completely finish Tomorrowland. 1 - because we knew our time in MK might be limited and we wanted to make the most of this evening and 2 - because most Tomorrowland attractions are indoors, away from the rain!

We headed in that direction. Can you guess what our first stop was?

...






My man has a small bladder. Also he loves to drink liquids. It's not a great combination.

Whew! After the bio break, we headed to an old favourite:


Oh dear. That's blurry. Try again?


Oh. Never mind. Apparently it wasn't my night for photography!

It was a 25 minute wait but we didn't mind. It was so early in our trip that our good moods could not be diminished!

We were behind a mother and her very tiny daughter in the line. The little girl was so adorable, she kept us entertained. At one point she picked something up off the floor and gave it to her mom. I didn't think much of it, but the mother turned to us and said;

"Hey, would you guys like these? We won't use them!"

I looked and saw four fastpasses for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

"They're almost up," she said "but you might get there in time!"

I looked closer, indeed we had only 20 minutes until the return time closed and we were only 3/4 of the way through the Buzz line. We thanked her very much and said we would try to make it!

We hopped on Buzz feeling a little buzz of excitement ourselves. Surprise fastpasses! Sweet! Some Disney pixie dust already!

We had a very fun ride with Johnny kicking my bottom, as usual.

My score:


Johnny's score:


We hopped off Buzz and looked at each other, making a split second decision. We had 10 minutes and an entire park to cross. We were going to give it a try! Fastpasses in hand, we got ready to make a break for it.



We walked out the door and stopped dead. Now there was something we didn't think about that could significantly slow us down --

The POURING RAIN!



Cont. in next post!

I have yet to do that ride...hmm.
