The Oysters were awesome! The only thing that wasn't quite as good was that in California we have this sauce called a Mignonette. Later our server told us that we could request it and they know how to make it. It's essentially red wine vinegar and some shallots, but it is so tasty with the Oysters, I always use it over the cocktail/horseradish option. When you come out here, maybe we could leave Disney property and get some, they don't serve raw oysters at Disney restaurants.

Future D&B purchase, can't wait to see it!

Dinner looks great. We've never been there but it's going on our next trip list. I have no idea when that will be but Fulton's is on the ADR list.

That squirting Stitch is funny. I am surprised by it every trip.

I'll take the crab, you can keep the oysters.

I love watching people by the spitting Stitch.

I love the artwork. I can imagine having something like this hanging on my wall. I am glad that you enjoyed your dinner. I don't eat seafood so we have never tried Fulton's. I am curious about which D&B purse caught your eye, too.

All of the food at Fulton's looks appetizing especially the Lobster Corn Dogs.

Great update.

Hi Alison!
I am with you, I really prefer the mignonette with oysters over cocktail sauce. I am looking forward to downing more than my fair share of oysters in San Fran at Hog Island Oysters this August- it is right across the street from us (we're staying at the Hyatt).

Funny about those people in Stich's spit! That must have been VERY entertaining!

I really like Fulton's, we've been there twice now.

I will happily take the Oysters, I'm glad that I didn't go out there and sit!

I know! I couldn't believe that she wanted to go in WoD, I figured dinner there was OK, just not shopping.

I'll tell you, this was the ONLY place I saw that purse, and I looked all week.

Surprisingly I was up early enough to see this.









I began packing up the rest of our things. I designated one suitcase for all the stuff that we weren’t going to need for the rest of the trip. It was too cold for Fran to wear shorts, so those went in there. Plus she brought some really fancy clothes even though I told her we only had one sort of fancy meal. I also put some of the souvenirs we bought into the suitcase.

The box that we shipped our food and goodies in, I filled that with souvenirs as well. I had the forethought to purchase some packing tape at Publix when we went shopping because it became clear with the shopping that we did at Universal and the Titanic store that we were going to need every bit of storage to get home that we could get!

I had noticed these curtains at some point after we checked in. What a really cool little touch!











I packed up all our food. Turns out we only had two bags for the fridge and one bag for the freezer. Everything else was OK to be stored in normal heat. Now, I’m pretty sure that we had coffee and were done eating and pretty much packed up by 9:30. But Fran must have spent at least an hour on the computer so I kept myself occupied, while trying not to be irritated. I shouldn’t be too annoyed because one of the things that she was doing was buying us tickets to the “Fanniversary” event in Burbank at the Walt Disney Studios.

I also know us all too well. There is a reason that our reservation at the Sci Fi Dine in theater was for 1PM

So I consoled myself out in the hallway taking these pictures on the Pembe Savannah. Here’s an Okapi and some Red River Hogs.



I think these are Impalas



A close up of the hogs, just for you Pam.



Isn’t this Okapi gorgeous?



More shots

















Eventually she packed up her computer and called Bell Services to come get our bags. We had something like 21 bags all together. Most of it was groceries, but the cart was pretty darned full! It was just about 11:00AM when we were leaving the room. I never expect that on check out day we will leave any earlier. It has rarely happened so, I just expect we will take our time getting out of the room.

We said goodbye to Kidani for this trip and headed off to the bus stop for our next destination.

Those sunrise photos are gorgeous. Seeing both Okapi and the cute hogs in one photos is a real treat. I do love them both.

Our last two stays at AKV we were on the Pembe, the red river hogs are my favorite to watch.
