    Oh you MUST go find VMKRevisited! It's like the best thing in the world! You should go to www.gpvmk.com though because the creator had some great ideas and they're featured on there.
    I check OpenVMK every day to see if I can sign up. Nothing yet though.
    It's probably from 2007 or something. I can't even remember. I do remember, though, that my signature always was a jumbled spam of userbars and bouncing emotes. :laughing:

    But anywayyyyyyyyssss....
    I was on Simple Disney things and I saw... http://www.flickr.com/photos/67907690@N03/6446896333/
    (Sorry for just a link, but I couldn't get it here so I just uploaded it to flickr. By the way, like my name? :rotfl:)

    Ok so my sister and I have read all of your trip reports, we love them so much!!! We think that you and your friends are like the coolest ever. So when one of my friends returned from a Disney trip he took over Thanksgiving break and I saw a photo of him with Natalie on the monorail and I freaked out!!! For real, it was like a celebrity spotting for me. So, I texted him immediately and asked how he knew her and never told me (we are both HUGE disney fans and that's all we ever talk about). He texted me back and said "that's Alan's sister..." I had no idea go to school with her older brother and I am actually pretty good friends with him, as i matter of fact I was just in a show with him before they left for vacation. I felt like an idiot. but anyways I just thought it was crazy, I already new you lived in NY because of your trip reports, well that and for this trip (the one you are writing about), we were there the same time you were but didn't know it until we saw you on our flight back to NY. I keep trying to compare the days that we were in each park and see if we were ever in the parks at the same time. But usually you where there the day after us (like the day you went to the coral reef) It just blows my mind because I always read your trip reports and never realized this. Sorry for the ramble//please don't think I am a stalker. I just thought it was neat lol. It's a small small world.

    I loved reading about the late night frumpiness at MK. The fun of the night came across so well.

    If it weren't for TSM fastpasses and cupcakes from Starring Rolls, we'd probably never go to DHS in the morning. :rotfl: Glad you got to try the red velvet cupcake!

    Aww thanks :) I love that we all "get it." It's such a rare thing but we really appreciate it. :goodvibes I hope your husband someday gets your your level! But until then, you have all of us here on the dis!
    Yes I went to Disneyland when I was 12... but other than that I've only been to Disney World! I've never been on a cruise or to any other park.

    Ahhh that would be why! Thank you haha now I understand.

    Hello! I'm so glad you're here and decided to comment! Thank you so much! Aww that's so cute - I'm sure we will! They're just so magical and special! And aww you're welcome thank you for reading!

    That's super weird! I don't know... they seem fine to me! Your post was in the right place, so no worries! :)
    Such a true statement. It's probably one of those things they just don't think of. :rolleyes:
    HAHAHA I know!!! For some reason when I see it, I just LAUGH! Same with the Soarin' mad dash! It's just hilarious! :rotfl2:
    YES THEY DO! I'm glad I shared that info with you! :thumbsup2 You can get as many to go cupcakes as you like now!
    Thank you!
    Haha I knowww. I WANT ONE NOW!
    Thank you!

    Aww well at least someone came along that understands! :goodvibes Better later than never! :thumbsup2 But I'm glad you're enjoying - thanks for reading!

    Yes you do!! And AHHHH CONGRATULATIONS! :banana: That's so incredibly exciting! LET THE COUNTDOWN BEGIN!

    We got them at this festival over the summer in a town near ours. It was one of those little stands where they spray paint shirts, so we asked them if they would do a Mickey :) So they were customized! I think I wrote about it in the "pre-trip report post" if you want to read about it more in depth!

    I KNOW. It's like bakery heaven on earth. :cloud9: I need someone to hold me back when I'm in there!
    And YES you absolutely must!! It's so good!

    Oh darn it... how inconvenient you have to go back to Disney World! :lmao: JUST KIDDING that's a wonderful thing! They are one of the best foods in all of Walt Disney World! I hope you get to try one!

    Okay I am definitely going to look those up because I miss it SO MUCH! Let me know if it ever opens!! :yay: And HAHAHA good times.
    That is a BEAUTIFUL simple disney thing! Ahh that girl just understands!! I wish she was on disboards! She probably is :rotfl: And ahh yes I love your name! So cute! :thumbsup2

    Thank you so so much! I'm glad you enjoy them! :goodvibes Thank you so much for reading!

    This is seriously the craziest thing EVER!! I can't even get over it! :yay: I private messaged you today but I am not sure if it went through. Either way, I will respond here as well.

    I was so shocked when I read this... that is AWESOME!! I don't even know where to start haha.

    Oh my gosh if that ever happened to me I would freak out! Hahaha I love that you recognized her and I can't BELIEVE you know Alan! That's super super weird! I absolutely love their family - they are the nicest people EVER!

    YOU SAW US ON YOUR FLIGHT BACK HERE?!?!!? No freaking WAY! That is awesome!!!! I wish I would have known! I can't believe we were there at the same time! It would have been so weird if we were in the same parks. But hey, pretty close!

    Hahaha don't worry. This pretty much just made my day. This world is SO small. Want to know how small?? This is insane. I read the introduction post of your TR... which I really want to finish because you were there when we were!! But anyways.. you said you go to school for theatre. So you go to school with Alan, right? Because if you do... this is the absolute CRAZIEST thing ever... I am going to his school for the second semester of this year. AND I'M GOING FOR THEATRE. Oh. My. God. SUCH a small world!! It's SO good to hear that there are Disney fans there!!!

    Aww I'm so glad Thank you!
    And HAHAHA oh my God I totally agree! Disney knows how to get people there at all hours of the day. :rotfl:

    Cast members are magical. That was so nice of them!

    That is a little weird...ah well.

    MAD DASH!

    Ahh the excitement for you is building up as I read this. That cupcake is just so amazing.

    MMMMMMMMM. If I weren't full, I'd be hungry. :laughing:

    What a cute little to-go container!

    Pretttyyy. :goodvibes

    No you did not. And neither did I, so I think that makes PERFECT sense.

    Yayy AK FP magic!! That worked out REALLY well!

    YUMMMMMMMM. :love: :love:

    HAHAHA you're a princess.

    Oh Nat. What an adorable picture. That was fabulous. I want one now, even though I'm not hungry. SO worth the calories.

    Hahaha eating that cupcake was one fantastic moment of my life. :cloud9: It's going to become a regular thing now... which could be dangerous. :laughing:
    Yeah that FP situation worked out SO well! Thank goodness for pixie dust!
    I want one toooo! Even though I'm full. WHATEVER I'll eat it.

    Chapter 23: "I Like the Lion Section Cause They Go ROAR!"
    August 21st, 2011

    Once we finished our cupcake, Scott met up with us. I think he must have slept in this morning or something. No early extra magic hours for him!

    We were ready to start riding the rides! So we looked on mobile magic, and it said that Kali River Rapids was only 20 minutes.

    Unfortunately, by the time we made it over there, the wait time shot up to 40 minutes. Ummm no. So we X'ed that idea and got fastpasses.

    **Speaking of Mobile Magic.... umm IT'S NOT AVAILABLE ON THE IPHONE!?!?! That is NOT okay. I need mobile magic!! I basically just need the character greeting times. Is there another app for that?

    Anyways... While we were by Kali, I dropped my phone on the ground. Then after that it kept acting up all day. I think it was overheated too. :headache: I had my little flip phone at that point so it was already in bad shape. Oh well. It ended up being fine by the time we left Animal Kingdom.

    We headed to Expedition Everest next and the wait was only 20 minutes! Sarah and Kristen has fastpasses from earlier that morning, and Nat and I just got in the standby line.

    We were in row 10! And the line was not bad at all! It was super fun!

    We met up with Kristen and Sarah in the gift shop, and I had Sarah pose with these elephant stuffed animals! Elephants are her favorite.

    [​IMG]

    After that ride, Kristen and Sarah let me, Nat, and Scott use their extra Kilimanjaro Safaris fastpasses they received that morning! That was PERFECT because then we didn't have to wait until we could get new fastpasses!

    Before we headed to the ride, some lady complimented us on our Mickey shirts! She wanted to know if she could buy them in Disney... but unfortunately we had them custom made at home!

    Me, Nat, and Scott made our way over to Kilimanjaro Safaris. There was a big back up and it was SO hot out. So the wait was pretty brutal.

    Thankfully we finally got on the ride. There weren't a ton of animals out, but it was still fun! I'm glad we went on it!

    HAKUNA MATATA... WHAT A WONDERFUL PHRASE...

    [​IMG]

    "We've got YOUR laughing place... right up here!"

    [​IMG]

    This rhino was all covered in mud! Maybe it helped him escape the heat a little bit.

    [​IMG]

    HIPPOS!

    [​IMG]

    And more rhinos!

    [​IMG]

    Yeah there really weren't a ton of animals out today. It was the heat, I'm tellin' ya. It was early afternoon and the sun was BEATING down. I wouldn't be out if I were them, either.

    We met back up with everyone and went to Pizzafari for lunch!! My favorite!

    Our nice, refreshing Caesar Salads:

    [​IMG]

    DISNEY PIZZA DISNEY PIZZA DISNEY PIZZA!!!

    [​IMG]

    And I got the chocolate mousse this time. January taught me well! DO NOT GET THE SUGAR FREE STRAWBERRY PARFAIT. Yuck! It's so gross.

    [​IMG]

    Our meal was fantastic as usual! I just love that place so much!

    We finished up lunch and then went to Camp Minnie-Mickey. We saw this stuffed animal of Timon and Pumbaa and took a picture for Mr. Sam, since he sang Hakuna Matata with us!

    [​IMG]

    And then off in the distance.... TOUR GROUP FLAG ALERT!!!

    [​IMG]

    Thankfully, we successfully avoided them on this trip!

    So we took a look at Camp Minnie Mickey, and the only character wait that wasn't totally insane was Donald Duck. There were fans in the line, which was good because it was SO HOT. Ughh. It was finally our turn, Sarah got an autograph, and we took a picture with Donald!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We were going to meet other characters, but the lines were just too long! So we went in the gift shop to cool off for a few minutes.

    LOOK WHAT I DISCOVERED.... Jesus loves Disney too! ♥

    [​IMG]

    We also found this BEAUTIFUL Animal Kingdom Crewneck! I don't know why the heck I didn't buy it... I just was not in shopping mode on that trip! I'll have to get it next time! Kristen got it a few days later on this trip though! It's just adorable!

    [​IMG]

    I love that gift shop! It's decorated so nicely!

    [​IMG]

    We decided to go to Festival of the Lion King next! This was Nat's first time seeing it and she was AMAZED!

    Sadly, we were in the giraffe section again. Now.. I have NOTHING against giraffes. I really love them! Except in this show. I don't like bleating like sheep. GIRAFFES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SILENT! I think Disney made that whole "sheep" thing up.

    [​IMG]

    Okay, they probably didn't... but I like to pretend.

    The Lion section is my favorite because they go ROAR! But really... they have the best animal sound! Anddd they have the best host.... Good Lookin'. ;) I love him.

    [​IMG]

    That show really is spectacular. I just never get sick of it and I get goosebumps every time! All of those performers are exceptionally talented! I am so beyond impressed with them.

    [​IMG]

    I left the theatre feeling cooled down, relaxed, happy and satisfied. Yay! Time to venture forward!

    That stinks that you can't get Mobile Magic on the iPhone! I know it's only for Verizon, but I never had it because I have AT&T. I don't know if there is something that has the character times. I have the Lines app and the Undercover Tourist app, but none of them seem to show character times. :confused3

    I love Festival of the Lion King! I don't see it often, but I saw it on my last trip and I remembered why I should see it more often. Of course, eye candy doesn't hurt either. ;)

    Lines doesn't have character times, but it's a great app otherwise. I don't think you'll get character times except through the official Disney app since they change so frequently. But you can ask any CM where to find a certain character and they'll let you know. The general times and locations is also available on the times guide.

    I know right?! I have Verizon so you would think I could get it... but no. :sad2: Ugh my old phone is still activated (due to complications at the verizon store) so maybe I will just have to bring it along with me. :laughing: The character times thing is the best! It's SO incredibly helpful.

    I love it too! And hahaha you got that right ;)

    Yeah I heard that's a good one! I might get it. I have the Disney Magic Guide and I think that is a part of it. And yes very true! I will do that if worst comes to worst! :thumbsup2

    Aww the blue elephant is adorable!

    :eek: THAT BIRD PICTURE IS TERRIFYING!!! I'm gonna have nightmares. This update should have come with a warning LOL

    In July, our driver said that elephants/rhinos cover themselves with mud because it protects their skin from the sun. I guess mud is nature's sunscreen. I don't know why I continue to pay for it when I could just slather myself up with some mud at the hotel in the morning and be done with it. :rotfl:

    PIZZAFARI :love: I'll be covering our meal there in my next update (whenever I get around to writing it).

    Donald's park ranger outfit is like my favorite thing ever. He looks so cute!

    Next time I get stuck in the Giraffe section, I fully intend to swing my "neck" around and make horribly violent smacking sounds. After sitting through that Youtube video, you can bet I'm going to be putting my new knowledge to use. ;)

    Jesus loves Disney, too! :lmao: :rotfl: :rotfl2: Classic! Legen-wait for it-dary trip reporting!

    If you don't watch How I Met Your Mother, you might not get the legendary thing. Go immediately and start watching it...if you like Friends (and I know you do) you will like HIMYM, too!

    BTW...I'll be at Disney in THREE days!!!! :woohoo: :banana: :cool1: Not that I'm counting down, of course. Because I'd never do that!

    Oh! It's completely fine! It looks like our posts came like exactly a minute apart so I can see why mine got lost in the mix. :)
    Ok... I really have a dilemma now, a major life decision to make. I have been planning for months now (seriously, months) to get a cupcake at Kusafiri Cafe at Animal Kingdom. But now... between your and Kristen's Starring Roles updates... I have no clue which one I want more. Oh good grief. I CANNOT get both. I have too many other things on my list to get two cupcakes. But ahhhhh. Hahah I'm sorry I'm posting my DRAMA on your TR.

    Hahaha I love that you were readjusting your ADRs. A planner's work is never done... I mean it's literally an art form. I KNOW that TR is gonna be awesome though. :thumbsup2 And also... I AM IN THE SINGLE DIGITS NOW. OH MAN. This morning I had a dance party alone in my kitchen (I had a ME party, a party by myself. :rotfl:)

    PS. I saw you replied to my post on Kara's TR about amandaplease.com and I am SO SAD. For some reason I decided to look and see for myself and it said 'This page does not exist.' UGH it was depressing.

    OMG! I'm such a dummy that I didn't even realize you had posted an update yesterday! SO yay, more commenting! hahaha I'll make it short I promise.

    Hahahha I love the Splash Mountain quote. That vulture is CREEPY though! EEEEEK.

    DONALD DUCK! Is my favorite! I love him. :love: I need to meet him in his jungle outfit!

    Hahahahahahaha! Jesus loves Disney! Well I mean, he has to! That's awesome.

    OH Festival of the Lion King. :lovestruc Yeah I never have understood the bleating giraffe thing. They could have picked another animal, surely?! I think it would be funny if the people sitting in the giraffe section boycotted and either sat in silence or just roared anyway. Lucky for Disney, I have never been seated in the giraffe section. :rotfl:

    YAY! Okay I'm done talking for tonight! Have a great week!

    AH I'M SORRY! I should have warned you. I forgot we have a lot of bird phobias around here on the dis! :laughing: Between you and Kristen... I just don't even know. I could imagine you both avoid the enchanted tiki room?
    Hahaha omg yeah sunscreen is expensive! So maybe we should take after these animals. :rotfl: That could make for some very interesting looks from a very large amount of people, though!
    You need to write an update SOON! (please :) ) I need something to read! :thumbsup2
    Donald has some precious outfits, I must say!
    HAHAHA oh my God any time I see a giraffe now I just think of your update. I need to see this video.. even though it sounds disturbing hahaha.
    But hey, if you do that, maybe it'll teach those FOTLK CM's to put you in a better section ;) aka the lion section. That's the best.

    Hahaha I'm so glad you found that amusing!
    I don't watch it but if it's anything like friends I'm sure I would love it! I will have to check it out!
    AHHH so I think if my math is correct.. YOU ARE THERE RIGHT NOW! I hope you are having a magical time! :goodvibes

    Hahaha NO PROBLEM! Hmmm I really don't know! I have never had the Animal Kingdom cupcake before so I can't compare the two. All I do know is that the Red Velvet one is AMAZING and you would not be disappointed if that is the direction you choose!
    Oh my God I readjust my ADR's on a daily basis. Like literally.. I need to just go on my trips before I have a whole new set of meals!
    THAT IS SO EXCITING!!! Single digits are the best! I'm 12 days away!!!!
    YAY MUPPET REFERENCE! Best movie EVER.
    p.s. Isn't that the saddest thing EVER!? Ugh so depressing.

    Yay comments!
    If Jesus didn't love Disney... that would not work out too well for me. :lmao:
    Yeah like... I don't even know what other animal they could have done. Maybe a monkey? They have a fun animal noise.
    Haha thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the update!

    Thank you so much! Aww I know... I always wish I was there! It's my home as well! And oh my gosh that's so great to hear! I definitely want to! I bet that was a wonderful experience... CRT is SUCH a great restaurant.

    Thank you so much! I'm glad you have been enjoying yourself! We really do have a lot of fun and I'm so happy you like hearing about everything we do!

    Hooray! Feel free - the videos are lots of fun!
    Well... I decided to transfer schools so I am in the middle of that right now. But I think it's all going to work out for the best. And OH MY GOD YEAH I AM!!! I have 12 days left and I'm basically FREAKING out! :banana: So excited.
    And ah thanks for letting me know! I will do my best to get over there!
