That is a great idea for the school project - I'm sure the show will add an extra touch. Love the photo of your dog in the snow.

Great topic for a school report! Good timing, too, with your trip and the opportunity to see a show! Can't wait to meet you-- very soon now. Dogs get such pleasure out of being in the snow it's hard not to enjoy it with them. But sunshine and warmth will be better!

DAY 6

AK DAY FINALLY !!!

I AK. I find it very magical and have never found it chaotic there. An Oasis if you will. Before our first trip there I remember reading that people thought it was a half day park or a skip it park. But we love it and sometimes have a hard time fitting in all the shows because we also love to ride EE more than once . Now Mike has given up on riding EE over and over I think he'll do 2x but that's it. But he loves to explore the queue so he doesn't mind waiting for us


My Dad and I both read books about Everest climbs and watch any movies or documentaries we can find. And we always call each other if we notice something coming up on TV . Why ??? I don't know. Neither of us has climbed anything and we think these climbers are slightly mad. I think we both admire the athletic endurance and find the effects of thin air on people interesting. We have dreamed about taking a trek to base camp just to see it. So I'm looking forward to seeing what Dad thinks of Everest and surroundings. I think it's fanastic.

My Mom's a gardner so I also think she'll love how lush it is. We always seem to see beautiful flowers in bloom when we walk the trails around the Tree of Life. I can't wait to take her around there. So we will walk all the trails, safari, the Flights of Wonder & Festival of the Lion King are all musts.

On my to do list (besides EE) is the parade. We have never caught the full parade and there is a Christmas twist so I need to factor that in and find a good spot for viewing. Any suggestions ??

We have reservations at Boma for 5:10 so I hope the timing of everything works out.
Mike and I love Boma and it's a must every trip for us now. It's also easier when it's a buffet for my picky eater.

After dinner we'll take in the decorations and show my folks the savannah.

There will be no napping, no retreats mid day for a break. But I think it will be a perfect day.

You know I love the idea of savoring every moment and every aspect of AK! Your Mom will love the landscaping. I think the Oasis and the Maharajah Jungle Trek are masterpieces and never tire of those areas even when the animals are in hiding. I've only seen the parade once and wasn't thrilled by it. I've never seen the holiday version, though, and will try to make myself watch it one day this trip!

We always feel that AK is park that shouldn't be rushed, so I love your plans!

You'll have an amazing time in Animal Kingdom - I always think that people who go there with an interest get more out of it.

Sounds like you have a nice plan for Animal Kingdom day! I love the AK park too and always feel so peaceful when I'm there. It just makes me happy. I hope your Mom loves the grounds at WDW, I'm always in awe of them and feel inspired while in the parks.

It's too bad my AK day doesn't happen until you're are gone. Maybe I could have enticed you to watch the parade with us.

I know my Mom will love all the gardens. She used to do woodcarving so I'm so excited to see her reaction to the Tree of Life

DAY 7

Today is serious business for those coming along with me today. Rope drop at MK and straight back to the new Fantasy Land. My parents might choose to meet with us later which is fine. We plan on having counter service at Be Our Guest.

Rachel & I are so looking forward to checking it all out. She Belle and we recently watched Beauty and the Beast so it would be fresh in our minds when we toured. Rachel has also rediscovered our Hidden Mickey book and has been marking which ones she wants to find while we're there. I also reminded her that there is the new Socrcerers of the MK to try out. So she & I will have a busy day. I don't think the other 3 will keep the same hours we will at MK.

We have reservations for the 6:15 Hoop de Doo. Mike likes the corny humour and Rachel laughed way more than I expected . I think my folks will also like it and it's and excuse to be at Fort Wilderness. Since my dad will have the car we'll drive out there and then be able to drive around the trailer park to see all the lights. Also we'll stop in at Wildnerness Lodge to see all the decorations there.

DAY 8

Mike's birthday is December 5 ( same day as Walt ) So his I have arranged for a Segway tour in Epcot before the park opens He talks about wanting to do this quite a bit & since he's nearly impossible to buy for this is perfect. I was going to tell him on his b-day but Rachel wants to wait until the night before to tell him.

Rachel & I will likely head to AK to ride EE and PW and walk the trails. Or she may want to return to MK. I will let her decide. We will all meet up for lunch at 1 at Biergarten. We ate here last trip and I think I ate my weight in potato salad I even decided to have potato salad for dessert. Other than that I don't remember much about it but I find that sometimes a buffet is a good way to please everyone.

This will be our Candlelight Processional ticket as well for the 5pm show. I'm looking forward to the show and have a dedicated area to see Illuminations from was appealing as well.

DAY 9

Is sadly time to say goodbye. We have a 1:30 flight so I assume we'll be whisked off property around 10:30. But with memories to last a lifetime.

NEXT UP : last minute bits and bobs
