    love the update. The pictures were great and I love Lion King, I have seen it three times on Broadway, and it is always wonderful, I saw it at Disney once many years ago, but I should go back and see again, if I ever make it back there!

    Admittedly we've never been the the Festival of the Lion King. It is now a must-do on our next trip.

    Sunny is coming home today!!!!!


    I had booked a massage for me at 4:30PM, and the vet just called to say she can go home after 4PM. I'll have to pick her up after the massage, but :banana: Yay! My baby is coming home.

    Actually I have chalk that Chip and Dale pic up to Fran. Thank the goddess she is home. She is a happy girl!

    We'll just have to wait and see!


    I was wondering where that came from. Never seen the show, but I would imagine that we would like it had we watched from the beginning.

    The animals are always more active earlier in the morning.

    We've seen it a couple times too. You WILL make it back, once you stop planning so many cruises! :rotfl:

    I would say that it is a definite good time. I can't believe that we waited so long to see it.

    Sunny is posting to you all that she is back home and happy. Her first move was to eat cat food from three different plates, almost one whole 6 1/2 oz can of cat food. Her second was to go poop.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone! She is very happy. And after the cans of cat food, she also ate about a 1/4 cup of chicken. But for her that's a drop in the bucket. She's quite the eater.

    We should be able to remove the bandage...she's doing really good!

    Sunny is looking perkier and I'm sure she's happy to be home.

    So did Fran survive all your fun and travel to Florida? It won't be long and you'll be off on your next cruise.:thumbsup2

    She was such a happy girl, slept with us in bed all night. So far she's already eaten twice this morning.

    It's a lot of work having fun! Now we need a vacation from our vacation. The massage yesterday helped me out. She got a lot of sleep on the trip, so she wasn't as wiped out as I was. We need to get on planning that cruise, airfare and hotel the night before.

    She's very happy to be home!


    Now time to get on with this TR!

    Watching those dancers at FOTLK exert all that energy made us hungry again, so we stopped for some.

    [​IMG]

    THAT. was really good!

    [​IMG]

    Then we headed over to a ride that I had not been on for at least five or more years.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I thought that this sign was funny.

    [​IMG]

    The queue moved along really quickly. We probably waited no more than 10 minutes in this part of the queue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We got to the loading area, and they let us take the elevator down instead of loading through the regular way with the stairs. Once we got loaded in the car, the ride went down. I used the opportunity to take pictures in the loading area.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pretty soon we were going again, but we probably waited longer in the ride vehicle in the loading area than we did in the overall queue. And here’s our tacky picture of our picture. The ride was a lot more jostling than I remember, but it was still fun.

    [​IMG]

    We wandered around admiring the Dinosaurs for a while

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now I had seen this on the Disney Food Pictures thread but it was from Hollywood Studios, Mac and Cheese Hot Dog. Since I already had plans for our meal at DHS (Sci-Fi Dine in Theater), I wasn’t sure how I was going to try this. Imagine my surprise when I saw it on the menu at Restaurantosaurus. We decided to come back here and get one after our ride on Dinosaur and split it between the two of us.

    [​IMG]

    The décor of this place was really cute.

    My nephew and I enjoyed the dino pic.

    Have you started checking out the new cruise itineraries for 2014? I'm thinking about the Oct 4th Southern Caribbean.

    At this point we really needed to head out of there. It was probably 2PM maybe 2:30. This was the day that I was supposed to return the rental car. It needed to be back at MCO by 4:00PM to avoid another day’s charge. I also had to pick up a couple more things at Publix before returning the car. We hustled back to the bus stop and for the second time, we lucked out. The bus was waiting at the stop. It was almost ready to leave, but the CM who was monitoring the buses let the bus driver know that we pulled up in the nick of time. He loaded us on the bus and we were back to the hotel in no time.

    I took the toll road back to the Airport. I left Publix at about 3:15 and got to the airport at 3:50PM. It was a short walk back into the terminal and over to the Magical Express area. I had about a 25 minute wait before I was on the bus and headed back to Kidani. The ride took a lot longer than I thought it would as Kidani was the last stop on our trip.

    We had a 6:45 reservation at Sanaa, and I was really hoping for some time on the balcony watching the animals and enjoying a glass of wine. Unfortunately it was about 6:00PM when I got to the resort, so I only really had a few minutes before we had to take off for our dinner reservation.

    I snapped these pictures out the window before I ran off to the Airport.

    And these were as I enjoyed a glass of wine while the sun was setting.

    This little bunny snuck his way out onto the Savannah

    [​IMG]

    The Ankole Cattle liked to hang out near our window. This one guy really was interested in the feeding station for the giraffe. So much so that he was sticking his antler into the feeding station to knock the leaves on the floor so that he could have a tasty treat.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then we headed out to the restaurant.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It wasn’t very busy, but still they wanted to give us a pager.

    [​IMG]

    It didn’t take long for them to seat us and we were right next to a window. It was already dark, so we really couldn’t see a lot of animals. So we began to peruse the menu.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I pretty much already knew what we wanted, but the two of us discussed what we wanted to eat and settled on a few choices. We started off with the bread service. We choice 2 orders of Naan, Garlic Ginger Naan, Onion Kulcha and Pappadum. For accompaniments we had the Cucumber Raita (clockwise from the top), Red Chile Sambal, Mango Chutney, Garlic Pickle, and Tamarind Chutney.

    [​IMG]

    We decided on the Tapas approach again. Here are the Mustard Seed Crusted Scallops with Coconut Cream Sauce.

    [​IMG]

    And the Lamb Kefta Kebabs with Mint Chutney.

    [​IMG]

    And then we split the Sanaa Vegetarian Sampler, we chose the Stewed Lentils and Paneer Tikka with Basmati Rice. They split it into two portions for us.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We passed on dessert. That was a perfect meal. It did not put us in a food coma, and we went back to the room and I took a bath in the wonderful Jacuzzi tub. Now I might not have mentioned it much in the same way that most people don’t talk about their grooming and showering habits. Even if I don’t say anything about it, rest assured that I was in that tub every night. If I didn’t take a bath before bed, I did it in the morning when I woke up too early to get up. It helps me fall back asleep in the middle of the night. We had a plan for the next day, but you’ll have to wait to see what it is!
