    Amazing that you can always find more animals in the tree that you haven't seen before....I've never noticed the camel head before!

    LOVE the bug eye pictures!! That's so funny because I thought of you everytime I saw a Mickey Ice cream sandwich :laughing: Glad the boys weren't scared, I would have been worried too because that show can be overstimulating even for adults, but your guys are so brave!

    We've been missing out on something, how did I not know about the Kids Discovery Centers. Ok, I see a day at AK coming up. You got some great shots of the tree and I have never seen the side those last pics came from. Have to find it also.

    It's Tough to be a Mom! ;) :laughing:

    I never noticed the camel's head carving, either. Probably b/c I haven't been in the ITTBAB queue in like, forever! We'll have to do that this trip.

    Love you in your buggy eyewear!!

    Hi Carissa! I love the Connor "i don't wanna pose and you can't make me" picture! I'm so glad you took it anyway! :thumbsup2

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't know about the Kid's Discover Centers at AK. I guess you learn something new everyday...gotta love the DIS!

    The Animal Kingdom is my second favorite park after EPCOT. There is so many little things to notice as you look around, it never fails to keep me interested. The kids did really well in "A Bugs Life"...besides Carissa and I got to where those stylin' glasses.

    That was Owen. That discovery station is on an "island" and I was across the way, which allowed for a great shot.

    Yes, they did enjoy listening to the CM and doing the activities.

    Your avatar is so cute! :)

    I believe the camel is on the side where you exit. I noticed more than I would have because I was over there waiting while the boys did the discovery station.

    The tree is so amazing!

    I don't think I knew about the Discovery Club stations until before this trip (and it was our third). I'm sure I heard about it here.

    I miss my Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich avatar.

    :rotfl:

    :thumbsup2

    You should! And thanks. :)

    It sure is!! :rotfl:

    I love that picture, too. He cracks me up. When I showed him the picture recently he didn't look impressed. :lmao:

    Hi,
    All caught up finally, thanks for the links, and loving it.

    The walk pics were gorgeous.

    MMM Riversdie Mill and Tusker House, my 2 favorite places.

    Your tree pics are gorgeous.

    I love finding your TR, and then getting to read 3 or 4 new posts.
    I should of copied the picture you posted of the Tree, but was that a snake? And then you found bats? But they still are amazing pictures.

    I like this one. Being a teacher, I like to watch kids' faces when they are absorbing information to see the different expressions.

    I finally found the picture I purchased of us at Tusker House. I've added it to the original installment, but figured I'd post it here, too.

    After the Discovery Club station near The Tree of Life, we headed over to Dinoland to do the one over there. But first, we stopped for a bathroom break and took a few pictures.

    (I think Connor took this one.)

    Never noticed this before:

    Little ducklings!

    I left Chuck and the boys at The Boneyard and I went off for a solo walk to get fastpasses for Kali River Rapids (one of our favorites). Along the way I stopped for as many Photopass spots as I could find, but I didn’t like how any of them turned out so I didn’t bother purchasing them. But, I did take lots of pictures while I soaked in the atmosphere. I had never been to this part of the park before.

    It was time to head back and collect my boys. We needed to head over to Finding Nemo – The Musical. It was on our list of must dos for this trip since we hadn’t been able to work it in last time.

    While we were waiting in line, we were treated to some entertainment.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once inside, the CMs were trying to get people to sit in the front rows. I guess a lot of people don’t like to sit there because you don’t get as good of an overall view of the show. But, when the main characters came to the front of the stage, it was so cool to be so close and see their faces full of expression. Needless to say, we grabbed the front row!

    [​IMG]

    We all loved the show. My favorite was the guy who played Crush. He kind of reminded me of the lead singer from Bare Naked Ladies.

    After the show, we were starting to lose steam. It was getting hot out. Time to cool off!!

    Hi Marisa! :) I don't think there was a snake. Are you talking about the picture right before the bat - the one with the camel?

    I like that picture, too. :goodvibes
