    Day 3, Part 7 In Which We Witness A Tiger Pool Party


    Yeah I am updating AGAIN with another double update/Doupdate!!! It's really the only thing I can do because I'm SO EXCITED FOR OUR TRIP IN 67 DAYS. THE FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL HAS STARTED. Oh excuse me, it's called the "Flower and Garden" festival. SORRY BUT WHO CAN THINK ABOUT GARDENS WHEN EATING A DOLE WHIP THAT HAS ALCOHOL IN IT!??!?!!!?!!? NOT I! AND I MEAN YOU KNOW THEY'RE JUST GONNA HAVE THE SAME TOPIARIES AS THEY ALWAYS DO WHICH IS GREAT CAUSE THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL BUT I HAVE SEEN THEM AND ALL AND I AM JUST GOING TO BE EATING SO ENDLESSLY!!!!! THIS IS HONESTLY THE BEST!!!!!

    67 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Whew.

    Ok.

    So back to October. That lovely day at Animal Kingdom. We were in Asia.

    [​IMG]

    We went into the Yeti Store (I don't know the real name of it but there are a TON of Yetis in there so I call it the Yeti Store) for a bit. This sign amused me greatly:

    [​IMG]

    YETI ITEMS!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I love this elephant shirt! I would actually wear this whole outfit, truth be told. It would be a good Boma dinner outfit.

    [​IMG]

    We headed in the direction of the Maharajah Jungle Trek.

    [​IMG]

    These monkeys were out (I can't remember what kind they are at the moment) and they were playing together. It was so cute!

    [​IMG]

    Onto the Trek!

    So I noticed these duckling mosaics. Random!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Has this umbrella always been there or what? Because I don't remember it. More randomness!

    [​IMG]

    EXCITED TO SEE MY BELOVED PRECIOUS ANGELS!!! THE BATS!

    [​IMG]

    I love things that are both scary and adorable (which explains my horrible love life but we'll talk about my issues later), so bats make my heart swell with joy.

    Unfortunately, they were not doing much today.

    [​IMG]

    I've had better luck with them in the past! Check out this post from my 2010 TR. I love when they have their wings spread out and also when I can see their cute tiny bear faces.

    We moved on pretty quickly cause they were literally just hanging out.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The tigers were doing the usual pacing around the little pool thing they always do.

    [​IMG]

    But there was a twist! A CM had put a floatation device in the pool.

    [​IMG]

    Then this huge tiger just started acting like any little kitty.

    [​IMG]

    It was sooo cute. She would pace around and just kind of stare at it and then walk back and try and paw it again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Look at that giant paw!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    You all have to know what happened next.

    [​IMG]

    SHE FELL IN OH MY GOD CUTEST THING EVER.

    Up next: Continued in Next post!!! KEEP SCROLLIN!!

    Day 3, Part 8 In Which I Cross Another Experience Off The Ol' Bucket List


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    SHE IS LITERALLY THE PRETTIEST GIRL IN THE WORLD, DON'T ARGUE WITH ME.

    [​IMG]

    I love her.

    [​IMG]

    I come bearing videos! Sorry, I did not catch her falling in... every time I would record she wouldn't do it and then I'd stop and she would. But whatever you can still see her pacing around and having a pool party.

    Video 1: http://youtu.be/ZNqTowM8miU
    Video 2: http://youtu.be/oiaZrKzuu3k

    The other girls were doing stuff too.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    BUT the one playing in the pool was obviously the cutest. She just kept getting right back up and doing it again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Same thing. She'd pace around, try and grab the ball, stare at it, repeat.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I have now learned that watching a tiger fall into a pool never gets old. We must have stood there and watched for over a half an hour.

    [​IMG]

    I love this next one because she really looks like she is studying it. "You're a puzzle, white floaty thing. BUT I WILL SOLVE YOU."

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then this other tiger started pooping!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah I took a picture. Cause whatever. How many tigers have you seen do this? It's an occasion. So I pulled out the laminated bucket list I always carry in my back pocket and crossed off "See a tiger poop."

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile our bathing beauty managed to push the ball back over to the right side of the pool but she couldn't seem to accomplish whatever it was she wanted to. I think she was trying to sink it?

    [​IMG]

    She was trying to chew on it too. NEVERENDING CUTENESS.

    [​IMG]

    I think this tiger is the oldest. She wasn't playing or pooping or anything. She was just chillin.

    [​IMG]

    And yeah this girl just would not give up on her pacing and falling in routine.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cutest thing I have ever witnessed. SIGH.

    It really reminded me of how they are just big cats. It was acting so similar to a house cat. You could almost forget that if you took one step too far it would probably become less interested in the ball and more interested in eating your head.

    [​IMG]

    That was our last stop of the day - it was almost time for Hanson to take the stage again at Epcot!

    I snapped this on the way out - just another example of how EVERYTHING in AK is decorated to a T!

    [​IMG]

    Up Next: DO YOU LOVE ME, DO YOU LOVE ME, DO YOU LOVE ME, LITTLE PRETTY?!?! CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE CITY!?!!?

    I'm so happy Timon was able to stop by and join in on both his and Pumba's family reunions! Every gathering needs SOMEONE in a grass skirt and lei!

    HOLY COW at the gorillas! Was there something in the air that day causing drama all over the Animal Kingdom?


    Edit: OH SNAP. You were making more updates while I was leaving my comment! Sneaky Lia...

    I want to play with the big kitties!

    Sounds like you had Almost The Best Day Ever at Animal Kingdom Lodge. Riding Everst would have sealed the deal! Can I tell you how bad I want to be at Disney right now. I was just there twice in December and only 36 days till I go for the weeked to eat!:cheer2:

    DUDE seriously? Your AK day got even BETTER?! HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!

    Seeing that tiger must have been the cutest and awesomest thing ever! Seriously, I'm jealous. I would've just died over it and sat there forever watching. I also appreciate that you saw a tiger poop, hahaha.

    I agree!!!

    I don't know what was going on! It's so funny that I started out the day worrying that we wouldn't have enough time and that the animals wouldn't be active. HAH.

    I am an updating machine these days! I'm so overly excited for our trip, I have to get that energy out somehow!

    So do I! I WISH!!

    It's okay, I got to ride Everest many times while I was solo! It's all good.

    YAY for your trip being so close! I'm so excited to eat!!! AHH!!

    I DON'T EVEN KNOW. It was magical!!!

    It really was. I was just full of smiles, so much that my face hurt! and Thank you for appreciating the poop. :thumbsup2

    67 days is so exciting! My trip is in 49! I can't wait to see the Flower and Garden and Booze Festival.

    I'm totally with you on the scary/adorable thing. I love to look at the bats!

    That tiger is so gorgeous! You're so lucky to have witnessed a tiger poop. We all have that one on the bucket list because well obviously.

    Thank you so much!!! Glad you're enjoying it!

    Ahh I know! It was crazy! Everything just went so perfectly.

    I heard they're keeping everything exclusive to each festival, which is why you don't see huge sellers like Cheddar Cheese Soup at the F&G fest even though they could make a ton of $ on it. But we'll see! I really can't wait to try it. I still can't believe they combined ice cream with alcohol. Someone is plotting my death.

    Flower and Garden and Booze Festival LOL. Accurate!!! Ahhhh there is so much WINE. I'm so excited. I'm going to eat and drink until I die basically! You'll have to tell me how it is when you go!

    HAHA yes I am just so blessed honestly.

    :welcome: and thank you so much!! Gotta love Jess. I hope you enjoy the other TRs as well!

    Aww, thank YOU! I appreciate you reading my Disney ramblings.

    Great Report Lia! Headed down on April 19th....I can expect the Flower & g but also Food and wine ?
    Also looking for the cupcakes from DHS...I saw a choc peanut butter one in one of your photos...

    Can't wait to check into AKL and hit Epcot

    Just got caught up on you last few updates. I cannot believe how great your luck is with the animals in AK, it is just crazy! And since I have not heard any guys respond to your red clad, high ponytail Jasmine line... Lets just say that I AM A BIG FAN.... Yeah, Jafar is a creepy weirdo, but I just can't argue with his makeover on Jasmine (HA!)

    Just read all of your report so far and you have had me smiling and giggling the whole way through. You are just adding to my excitement for my trip in September. Can't wait for more! I can only hope that our day at AK brings us as much excitement as yours did... imagine seeing other animals pooping!!!!

    Okay, those tiger photos are ADORABLE! I remember spending almost 45 minutes watching the lions at MGM for the same reason...they were acting just like overgrown house cats! The handlers threw a big purple ball in there, and one of the younger lions was just going nuts with that ball. So cute!

    Your Boma dinner outfit is spot on. It's good to see you recognize the need to match your outfit with the appropriate park/restaurant/ride. :cool1: (or maybe that's just me) :rolleyes1

    I love your tigger pool party pics too! You had a fabulous day. So glad Lee-Anne got to see what she would have missed hanging out in the gift shops. ::yes::

    Animal Kingdom is great already, but your TR makes me see it in a whole new light. Seriously, anyone who can make tiger poop a "must do" is genius! :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    Thanks for the updates. Please keep them coming. :banana:

    Thank you!!

    Yeah, it's basically the Flower & Garden Festival combined with the Food & Wine Festival, except they have different menu items and booths. But it's the same idea.

    I actually never got the chocolate peanut butter one! Not yet, anyway, but I would love to try it. My favorite is the Red Vevlet Cheesecake Cupcake and I also had the Butterfinger Cupcake on this trip which was delicious as well.

    I'm so jealous you're staying at AKL! I really wanted to stay there on the upcoming trip but Lee-Anne and I couldn't agree on it. :( Oh well, I'm sure I'll stay there one day. It's been a dream of mine for so long! I hope you have a wonderful time there, you'll have to report back.

    I know!! I don't know where all this Animal Kingdom luck comes from but I wish it would manifest in other ways in my life. LOL.

    OKAY... I admit Jasmine looks super hot in the red outfit but the girl is a dime! She would look good in anything. Jafar is just so gross though with his "I WANT PRINCESS JASMINE TO FALL DESPERATELY IN LOVE WITH ME" ugh, go home dude.

    She is the most precious ever! That is... until she rips your head off. haha.

    Aww thank you so much! I'm glad you are loving it. :D

    I KNOW! I hope to see all of the AK animals poop in my lifetime. That is quite a lot of animals so I better get going.

    Wait.. there were LIONS AT MGM? Are you talking about MGM as in the park formerly known as The Disney/MGM Studios or the actual MGM studios?!

    Thank you! I love planning my outfits for Disney, haha. I've been doing it for my trip that is still 2+ months away!

    ME TOO! It really was an amazing day!

    hahaha Thank you so much! If anything is a testament to my genius, it's that, so I'm glad you noticed. :lmao:

    Thanks for reading them!
