    Being a Florida native (yes, we really do exist! :lmao:), I have a soft spot for palm trees, too!

    Yum, Rose and Crown! I still haven't tried the Scotch egg, but someday I will!

    I don't think it is too much. :rotfl:
    It was a good meal.

    I know they exist, his son and granddaughter both are. They just give a calming affect to me.
    You should. I was really surprised by it.

    Hi,
    Nice to see you. Hope all is well you.

    he had a credit on Southwest that had to be used or it would expire so he chose to fly down on them while I took Jetblue.

    Now the report becomes more. This day is over 200 photos. Hope you all like photos.

    Vinny got up early and went to get breakfast while I showered. He got me a bagel and a crumb cake for himself. The bagel was alright (no NYC bagel).

    Also had OJ.

    We also had coffee as we got a mini Keurig for a wedding gift and we used it down there and will keep doing so as it is in a purple box right now. LOL

    Here is Vinny on the bus.

    Lots of Photopass. Same pics mostly just different borders.

    The photographer here was so great.

    He told us to look down and be surprised.
    [​IMG]

    Vinny does not know how to look down. LOL

    He then asked us to go over here and take a photo here.

    He was the best photographer I have seen there. So friendly and so happy with his job.

    Next up,

    Walking and a safari.

    So after our great photo shoot we moved on. We walked over to see the flamingos.

    [​IMG]

    No photos please.
    [​IMG]

    I am so embarrassed.
    [​IMG]

    Then we moved on. We went next to the DVC stand.
    [​IMG]

    We were going to see the characters down by FOTLK but it was not opening for awhile so we walked on.

    I took these for a friend who lost her niece who was 3 months old and they called her ladybug.
    [​IMG]

    Then we went onto Africa. I am tired from our journey.
    [​IMG]

    I see you.
    [​IMG]

    Going to stop.

    Up next,

    Walking and a train trip.

    I really enjoy AK but never seem to spend enough time there! How great that you got such a good photopass photographer...I love CMs who obviously love their jobs!

    Ah, flamingos...or flapinkgos as I like to call them! :rotfl:

    No wonder you were tired...trekking all the way to Africa will do that to a person. Sounds like a tall frosty beverage is in order!

    The photos of the two of you in Animal Kingdom turned out so well! You both look happy!
    Rest up after that long trek to Africa - you don't want the lions to spoil their appetites by having a morning snack! lol

    Congratulations on your marriage! I'm loving your trip report. I was going to say the Epcot day was my favorite part, until I saw the AK pictures! How great!

    Nice photopass shots and great shots of the flamingos. The flamingos are pretty but are they not stinky? I remember being a AKL with my son and looking at the flamingos and both of us saying it stinks over here. Haha!

    You're very good with the updates on your TR. As you can see I started one and didn't get too far. It was kind of exciting though, I met Deb Wills from AllEars and Nikki another Diser. Don't know if I'll finish at this point. I do have another trip coming up maybe I'll do a TR on that one. I'm actually meeting up with the Singles Social Club on Oct. 13 which I think is during your next trip. I'll be with my brother and nephew and a girl from work who will be on her first visit. She's very excited and I can't wait to show here around! Maybe we'll get a chance to say hi at some point in October.

    In the meantime, looking forward to your next update. Oh and what ever happened to Linnie and Buzz?

    I love going there and taking photos. They are great when they enjoy what they do.
    Going to Africa is very exhausting. :rotfl2:
    Hmm, maybe I do have one.

    Thanks. I was so happy with them. That guy was awesome.
    :rotfl2: I have seen the lions once in about 7 trips.

    Thank you.
    Many more photos coming up.

    Thank you.
    It was a great trip.

    They do smell. Not like penguins though.
    I try to do one update a night. Tonight will be a double one. I started the pre tr for October and I find them very hard to do.
    yeah we will be there 10/8-10/20. that would be great if we meet up.
    They are doing good. They will be there in October also. They don't go to any boards anymore but speak to them often on Facebook.

    200 photos in a day? :faint: You are my new heroe, I love to take pics, but, you my friend, really, really, really, really love to take pics. How many did you take during the entire trip? If you say over a 1,000 I believe you... ;)

    Thank you for sharing your Disneymoon with us and congrats on your marriage!

    :rotfl2: that is nothing for me. I took about 1200 this trip. I do like taking pics but I take some of the same ones and then keep the best.

    Thank you for reading along.

    Thank you.

    So we walked and decided to get a fastpass for the safari.
    [​IMG]

    We then decided to go to.
    [​IMG]

    Waiting for the train.
    [​IMG]

    We are off.
    [​IMG]

    Behind the scenes.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There is a rhino in there.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Let us go walk up.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We made it.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Strike a pose.
    [​IMG]

    Now we will look in the windows.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Love turtles.
    [​IMG]

    Hate snakes.
    [​IMG]

    Coming soon...

    Next we went into a booth.

    Con’t..

    [​IMG]

    Vinny thought it was a movie but all that is in there is audio. It wasn’t bad. I believe there are 6 or 8 booths but we only did the 1.

    Then we saw Raifiki.
    [​IMG]

    We waited in line. It was short.
    [​IMG]

    They were really promoting this.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There we go.
    [​IMG]

    They should have a photopass person but maybe it is just not busy enough.
    Next we went outside to see the goats and more. I saw this and thought it
    was cute.
    [​IMG]

    Here we go.
    [​IMG]

    Why is everyone looking and touching me?
    [​IMG]

    A lone llama
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I was really surprised at how little amount of animals were here. Last time it was packed. Maybe they were doing something.

    Anyway we left. Shall we walk out?
    [​IMG]

    All aboard!
    [​IMG]

    On the ride back.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And with that we are back and ready for a safari.

    Up next,

    Safari time.
