Thanks Tracy. I considered this more of a filler update which usually aren't my favourite. Just not as much fun for me, ya know. But it needed to be chronicled nonetheless. AKL is gorgeous, definitely check it out. I was sad to miss Beaches just because I'd heard so much about it and the timing would have been perfect. But I have no regrets at all. Hannahs was phenomenal.Great update, Rob! Your AKL photos are beautiful... Never been myself though. Another thing I've yet to do is Beaches and Cream so, initially, I was quite disappointed the wait was too long for you. However, sounds like Hurricane Hanna's was the place to be as that burger sounds delicious!
Very excited to hear about the cruise! Ugh, don't ya just want to be there now... I am having major Disney withdrawal lately and I think it's because I don't have my next trip on the books yet! gotta fix that...
I sure do hope it lives up to expectations (the story I mean... the cruise itself sure did for me). Oh yeah, MAJOR withdrawal. Lately I've almost always had at least something in the hopper. But, September is looking better than maybe, so hopefully I'll pull the trigger soon.
You know Dave, that's a great point. I think this applies to all the resorts. Gorgeous always, but add in the holiday decor and it all just goes to a whole other level.After having stayed at AKL in January, I didn't think the resort could look any better and then I see from your pictures what they do for the holidays. Nice!
Yes, Wilderness Lodge can't really compete with those live animals roaming the grounds at AKL including the giraffes. Perhaps they should look into brining in some bison in their backyard?
The lines at Beaches and Cream was pretty insane the one and only time I visited it in October. I think I must have stayed in line for about 30 minutes by the time I got my milkshake but it was oh so worth it.
They do need to do something to compete. The geyser's cool I guess, but since I've never seen it actually go off and you're pretty much guaranteed giraffes at AKL, AKL wins.
It was so busy. I think the line for ice cream and such would have been doable, but to sit and order was just way too long. I will try it one day though. Perhaps during a better time of day.
Thanks so much!!!Great update!
OMG Meg I know. Just the funniest capture. There's not much you can say about it. I figure just let everyone come to their own conclusions.I have no words for that wardrobe malfunction photo of Chip omg

OH MAN when I saw that pre-magic shot pose...I was like...STITCH
I remember seeing one of those screens at the GFlo and the Contemp (I think) and just....so cool. So very very cool
YES GIRAFFES >>>>>>>>>>>>
OMG LOOK AT THE LITTLE BABY ZEBRA IS RIGHT

I can not take these photos of Jambo. I'm staying there for my first time in June and my level of excitement just skyrocketed holy crap
And now I will def make a note of this Angus burgher from Hurricane Hanna's
Hehe, I couldn't resist. Just trying to prepare everyone for the inevitable.
They do seem to be popping up at more places. I like it!
There can not be too many giraffe sightings. Clearly.
Isn't he cute??????? Baby animals rule.
Ahhh it's like heaven came to Earth. Just blown away.
Oh God it's beautiful Meg. You are going to go out of your mind. And I barely scratched the surface.
I want one NOW!!! Best burger in Disney (at least in my opionion). Why I don't know, it just is.
