    Starvation, FOOD, and trees

    Next, we headed into Asia. We stopped in front of Yak & Yeti and decided to get lunch at the Yak & Yeti quick service. I don’t know the name of it, but it doesn’t really matter. If it does matter to you, I’m sorry.
    “The other people” all had to go to the bathroom and I told them there was one down by Everest. But nooooo. They wanted to find one for themselves. JUST TRYING TO HELP.

    Before they left, I got everyone’s tickets and headed down to Everest to get FPs of course.
    [​IMG]

    And it was basically a sea of people down there. I could barely move and I was trying to dodge people like it was my job. It was pure craziness.

    IT IS SO CROWDED OMG

    Once I got down there, I went right up to a FP booth and got FPs for 4:30-5:30.
    [​IMG]

    While I was getting the fastpasses, I overheard a conversation between a CM and a Stupid Guest. Those conversations are the best, really.
    So this Stupid Guest was asking the CM what “other rides there were” in a snotty little attitude. The CM was telling this Stupid Guest very nicely and this Stupid Guest was rolling her eyes like “why isn’t there much to do here?” Ummm…DID YOU JUST COME HERE FOR THE RIDES?!!?! ANIMAL KINGDOM IS MUCH MORE THAN RIDES. STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES FOR ONCE.

    And I’m done now.

    Sooooo, after I got the fastpasses, I headed back to the Yak & Yeti area and Mum was standing with Troy, who was passed out in his stroller. So I ended up standing with him while Mum got in the 3 mile line to order our food.
    While I was standing with Troy, I was getting very light headed. Awesome. I knew I needed food right then. I couldn’t wait to get my lunch because I was extremely hungry. And when I get hungry…well, I get in a very bad mood.

    It wasn’t like I could just leave Troy there by himself so I had to wait for “the other people” to get back so I could find something to eat. Yes, they weren’t back yet and they had been gone for over 10 minutes. If they would just listen to me for once…

    Finally I saw Mimi and basically ran up to her with Troy and told her to watch him while I went on the hunt for something to eat.

    I ran up to Mum in line and asked for some money to get something, even though I had like five hundred dollars in my backpack…

    She said to find something sweet and gave me some cash.

    Then I saw the Royal Anandapur Tea Company and sprinted for my life. I got in line and saw the big case of baked goods. GET IN MY TUMMY, I was thinking.

    Once it was my turn, I ordered, and then the CM gave me my giant cookie. COME TO MAMA.
    [​IMG]
    And yes, I had to take a food picture. I am a DISer, so food pictures come first, even if you are about to pass out because you are so ridiculously hungry.

    I ate my cookie and became very happy since I had food in my tummy.

    I went to stand with Mum and Mimi and Troy went to look for a table. Seth and Jackie were also in line ordering.

    Mimi and Troy had no luck so I headed into the little seating area to look. And then I saw a family getting up. I rushed over to the table and stood about two feet away so I could grab it. But I guess that wasn’t close enough because once I was about to sit down, a woman who spoke no English whatsoever came over and sat right down. OH NO SHE DIDN’T.
    I was so mad, but it’s not like I could tell her off because of 1) I was in Disney, 2) She wouldn’t understand what I was saying and 3) I didn’t want the Disney police to be after me.

    I hate people. I really do.

    I headed back to Mum and told her I couldn’t find a table. Well I DID find one, but I guess Stupid Guests are more important.

    FINALLY, we got our food and by then, Mimi finally found a table towards the back of the seating area.

    We all sat down and had our lunch.

    Since I am five and all, I got chicken fingers, and they came with grapes and a cookie (YES!!).
    [​IMG]
    I am NOT a picky eater at all, but nothing on the menu sounded good to me at the moment.
    The chicken fingers were just all right, but oh my god, THOSE GRAPES. I don’t know why, but those packaged Disney grapes that have been sitting there for only God knows how long are SO GOOD. They were nice and cold and so yummy. I ate those puppies right up.

    Mum got the beef lo mien, and she really enjoyed it.
    [​IMG]
    She said that it was like the same amount of food that you get at the Yak & Yeti sit down and was just as good. And plus it’s half the price.

    While we were finishing up, Troy woke up and said he was hungry. So Seth shared some of his food and I took five hundred pictures of Troy eating. Don’t ask me why.

    I don’t know why, BUT THIS IS SO CUTE TO ME. AND LOOK AT THOSE SUNGLASSES.
    [​IMG]

    Troy had my cookie that came with my meal since I just had a giant one and all.
    [​IMG]

    THIS IS JUST SO CUTE.
    [​IMG]

    And that concludes the pictures of Troy eating that y’all probably didn’t want to see.

    I told Mum that the Royal Anandapur Tea Company had a ton of tea that she would probably like so we headed back over there after we cleaned up, since we aren't Stupid Guests that think the CMs will just clean everything up for them.

    [​IMG]

    Mum got the honey vanilla rooibos tea and she thought it was AMAZING. She raves about it all the time.

    Before we headed out of Africa, I pin traded at the DVC kiosk, which is right next to the Tea Company.
    [​IMG]

    Next, we headed over to Camp Minnie Mickey because Troy was DYING to meet Mickey. Surprise, surprise Mickey isn’t just at “the park,” YOU IDIOTS.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If you didn’t know, Camp Minnie Mickey has TONS of themed character trees. They are all so cute and I took a lot of pictures of them, duh.

    Chip and Dale tree.
    [​IMG]

    Pluto.
    [​IMG]

    Possibly Brother Bear? I don’t know.
    [​IMG]

    Nemo.
    [​IMG]

    You can’t really tell, but this is Lilo & Stitch.
    [​IMG]

    We got in line to meet Mickey and Troy was SO excited.

    Time to meet Mickey!

    We were next in line and then Mickey’s handler CM dude person (that was her name) told us Mickey was going to take a break. And once Mickey started walking away, Troy flipped. He thought Mickey was leaving and he wasn’t going to meet him. I get like that too, so I understand Troy’s pain…

    We told him Mickey was coming back and he calmed down.

    Mickey’s area was nicely decorated for Christmas.
    [​IMG]

    In like two minutes, Mickey came back and oh my god, Troy went NUTS.​

    OMG GPOY with getting hungry! I get agitated so easily when I'm hungry! My mom compared me to the snickers commercials lol!

    Ugh stupid guests! *eye twitch* I forgot to add in my TR that there was a group of foreign guests that were in France while we were eating our chocolate croissants, and when they were done they just got up and left all their garbage on the table... How rude..

    DON'T SHOW ME PICTURES OF LO MEIN

    Same food, cheaper price?! OMG thank you for that tidbit of info!!

    You are very welcome!

    I loved them too! They do such a food job with them.
    Troy LOVED all of the characters. I think that was his favorite part about Disney!
    Haha the pictures will be in the next update!

    Thank you!
    I haven’t gotten good pictures in the past. I think with my new Nikon, my pictures have been coming out A LOT better.
    FINALLY!!! Another person that appreciates the world’s most amazing animal! ​

    CUTENESS OVERLOAD

    Mickey came back out and Troy basically ran to him and pushed him over. He was just so excited and you guys should’ve seen his face. It was ADORABLE. And of course me being Miss Future Photopass Photographer, I stood off to the side and captured it all.

    It’s blurry, but SO CUTE.
    [​IMG]

    Troy WOULD NOT let go of Mickey. They stood there for what seemed like 5 hours, just hugging away. Troy didn’t care there was a huge line of people behind us. He just wanted to hug Mickey for like the whole day.
    And plus he gave him a GIANT kiss on the nose. I was standing there like “STOP THE CUTENESS OMG.”

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Troy finally let go of Mickey and I ran up like a five year old and gave him a giant hug.
    [​IMG]
    He liked my mousekears, duh.

    ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
    [​IMG]

    After I got my picture with Mickey, Troy wanted to meet some more characters so we got in line for Minnie.

    The character areas are themed so well for the holidays.
    [​IMG]

    Right before our turn, I noticed that the handler for Minnie was from a town a half hour away from us. Let’s sing it now! “It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all…” And now it will be stuck in your heads for weeks to come! That’s what I’m here for!
    AND we had the same Photopass CM when we met Minnie in August, aka the time I didn’t smile. And yes, I smiled the whole time this time around.

    Troy headed up first since he couldn’t wait any longer.
    [​IMG]

    And just like with Mickey, Troy gave Minnie the BIGGEST hug and wouldn’t let go.
    [​IMG]

    And gave her a kiss ♥
    [​IMG]

    He also showed Minnie his monkey stuffed animal thingy and she kept playing with it.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Family picture!
    [​IMG]
    How sweet… :/

    Mum and I went up next and grabbed a shot with Minnie.
    [​IMG]
    (Mum got in on that one since she loves Minnie and all. Otherwise, it wouldn’t of happened)

    After we met Minnie, Troy said he wanted a hot dog. Like, it was just out of the blue. So we went over to the little shack and Seth got Troy a hotdog. I mean, he just ate a ton of lo mien and a cookie, and now he needed more food. He is so my cousin.

    The Pocahontas tree was right by the table we sat at. It was so cute!
    [​IMG]

    LOVED the Meeko ornaments.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I kinda liked taking pictures of them, as you can see…

    We took a little break at the table and then I thought of the statues they have in Camp Minnie Mickey, you know, of Daisy, Mickey, etc, etc. I thought Troy would love them so I brought him over to see ‘em.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And oh my good god, HE LOVED THEM. He ran back over to “the other people” plus Mum and he was dragging everyone over to see them. I don’t think I have ran so much in my life from going to the statues and then back to our table like 500000x. Troy just adored them. Then I showed him Daisy, Huey, Louie, and Dewey—say that five times fast—and then we ran to the table, dragged everyone over, saw the statues, and then ran back another 5000000x. Seriously, with the statues and all of the characters, Camp Minnie Mickey was Troy’s favorite place in Disney.
    [​IMG]

    After seeing the statues like 1000000 times, we headed out of Camp Minnie Mickey.​

    Thanks! :-) I love it too.
    Oh, I know! That journal is awesome.

    It's so amazing ♥ And yes I gave my camera to the PP, since Mum can't take a picture and all...
    I love them. I'm very happy to see Pocahontas featured a little.
    Had to put that there!​

    Dino the flying dinosaur and the Yeti (that doesn't work)

    When we were leaving Camp Minnie Mickey, Mickey's Jammin, Jingle, Jungle, whatever the crap it's called, Parade was going on, so we stopped to watch the end of it.

    I got several pictures but I'll only post some (the good ones that didn't come out blurry).
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    IT'S MICKEY MOUSE!!!!! I LOVE YOU MICKEY!!!! I'M YOUR BIGGEST FAN!!!
    [​IMG]

    After we watched the parade over many peoples heads, we headed to Dinoland USA.
    [​IMG]

    Troy wanted to go on another ride so I brought him over to the stupid version of Dumbo, but with dinosaurs, cause we were in Dinoland USA of course and not, in like, Storybook Circus...

    It is called TriceraTop Spin, if you were wondering, but I call it Dino the flying dinosaur. Doesn't sound as good as Dumbo the flying elephant though.

    That's one big dino!
    [​IMG]

    The wait time was 20 minutes so we got in line and Seth and Jackie joined us too.

    And let me tell you lovely people, if Dino the flying dinosaur is more than a 20 minute wait, do not get in line because you will be wasting your precious time, unless you have a kid who is screaming and crying because he wants to go on another ride and this is your only choice at the moment because that stupid ride that slams you around so muchy--yes I'm lookin at you Primeval Whirl--has a height requirement that is too tall for your child. Seriously, its a two second ride--actually its a minute and 30 seconds. I just looked that up on Wikipedia, but they are always wrong, so who even knows. But they might be right about this for a change--and is not worth standing in line for 20 minutes.

    So after the awful 20 minute wait (they should have Fastpass for Dino the flying dinosaur), we got on and I sat with Troy while Seth and Jackie were in the back of us.
    [​IMG]
    Jackie looks all bundled up and cold. It was like 65 out, which is perfect to moi. Wimp.

    And then pretty soon we were off for a minute and 30 seconds of pure awfulness.
    [​IMG]

    Troy liked it though.
    [​IMG]

    And then the ride ended. It felt like we just got on... oh wait. We did.

    I got Troy out of our Dino and he started yelling I WANT TO GO AGAIN! Ummm...NO. I was not waiting another 20 minutes to ride Dino the flying dinosaur again. That one ride was enough, even though it was a minute and thirty seconds long. Seth and Jackie thankfully said no.

    I looked at my smashed up iTouch and it was time to go on Everest. So we met back up with Mum and Mimi and pretty much left Troy with Mimi so us four could go on EE. And we left him screaming and crying because he didn't want Seth and Jackie to leave. I dont understand that at all...

    So we all headed down to the mountainous beast: EXPEDITION EVEREST (Stacey? Anyone? ANYONE?!).
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We got in the FP line of course since we (well Mum and I) aren't Stupid Guests and wouldn't wait an hour. The stand-by line is for losers who dont know anything about Disney.

    Seriously, we walked right on. Jackie was freaking out. We didn't care and basically pushed her on the train. She would live.

    Like usual, the ride was amazing. And the Yeti wasnt working, but y'all should've expected that.

    And if you have never done this before, PUT YOUR FEET UP WHEN YOU ARE GOING BACKWARDS. It is so awesome and it feels like you are going upside down. LOVE.

    After the ride was done, Jackie said she hated it. Seth said he loved it.

    Our redneck ride photo.
    [​IMG]
    Jackie's holding on for dear life, Seth looks like hes loving it, I look like Mr. Whiskers again, and Mum's hair is blowing everywhere.

    AND OMG SPEAKING OF REDNECKS (since its our redneck ride photo), HONEY BOO BOO STARTS ON SUNDAY. I am so excited. Like, freaking out. Ya'll better watch it. On Monday, I expect a whole report on here from each and everyone one of my readers (the ones who comment and THOSE LURKERS WHO NEVER COMMENT ABOUT HOW AMAZING I AM AND HOW THEY FEEL BAD FOR ME BECAUSE I HAD TO GO ON THIS TRIP) about the episode and your thoughts on it. That is your assignment, OK?! Awesome. Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

    We looked in the dump shop for a few minutes and I noticed my camera was dead. OMG THIS CAN'T HAPPEN IN DISNEY. But then I saw the batteries by the cash register so it was all good.

    Seth and Jackie also bought our redneck ride photo (as a digital download) for some reason and a little stuffed yeti for Troy that I secretly wanted and I was thinking about a plan to steal it, but I'm not that mean.

    Jackie also tried on this awesome yeti hat.
    [​IMG]
    Beautiful.

    Not.

    We headed back to Dinoland and met up with Mimi and Troy and they were meeting Pluto and Goofy.

    So we stood behind the rope and watched them.

    A lovely Christmas tree and a dino butt. My two favorite things.
    [​IMG]

    Hi Pluto!
    [​IMG]

    Troy was showing off his monkey stuffed animal thingy thing again.
    [​IMG]

    He was being very shy!
    [​IMG]

    :-)
    [​IMG]

    After Troy met Dippy Dawg, and well, Pluto, we headed into some store in the land of dinos and Seth bought Troy a monorail, which was a Christmas present that I was secretly jealous of.
    I told him he could just send it back to their hotel and he was like "for an additional fee?" My friend, take advantage of the free things at Disney. So that's what he did!

    We wanted to go see Nemo, which was beginning in like a half hour (foreshadowing...) so we headed over there and out of Dinoland.
    [​IMG]

    And then I started to feel sick. I thought I was going to throw up.

    Great. We were in Disney and I was about to puke over the precious grounds of Animal Kingdom.

    I thought maybe I was hungry or something so I got a pineapple bar and a sprite from the closest ice cream stand and sat down on a curb and just chilled...but I couldn.t do that with Jackie saying "c'mon, lets go in! You're fine!" I was about to punch that woman in the face. I just wanted to sit down for a minute and eat my popsicle and have a sip of my soda WITHOUT YOU SAYING ALL OF THIS STUFF.

    I ate my pineapple bar as quick as I could so Jackie would just shut her mouth hole. I brought my Sprite in and had a few sips.

    We sat towards the front of the theater and I was turned out to be ok. I think hunger + EE = not a good combo.

    Seth also gave me some of these goldfish things he bought in the shop in the land of dinos, except they were Mickey shaped and TASTED AMAZING. They were so delicious and I could have eaten the whole container of them. If you are looking for them at the parks, they have Chip & Dale on the front and say AWESOMENESS AND YUMMINESS INSIDE. Really, they do.

    It was 6 by this time, and the show was going to start any minute...and then they made an announcement.

    "THE SHOW WILL BE DELAYED." ​

    The character spots looked like so much fun! I wish I took time to see the trees now! I was gong to wait to see Minnie in her Christmas outfit when I was in AK last week, but decided I rather spend my time eating one of those huge white chocolate elephant cupcakes instead! :rolleyes1 Great Update!

    They were! The decorations at them were awesome.
    The trees are fantastic. When you go back, make sure you do get to see them!
    Well, food does come first!
    And where do you get those cupcakes?
    Thanks!​
