Me too, Mayra. The older we get the harder we have to work for sure!!

I do keep all my appointments, but what I find interesting is that things are very different over here in terms of the age you're required to have such tests, which does make you think...
I think we live differently over here than you guys do which most likely has much to do with guidelines. No more putting things off for me. Life is too precious!

Sunday, November 11th

Today is Animal Kingdom day. And for anyone who knows me at all, you also know that this is my hands down favorite Park!! I can’t wait to see the beautiful Christmas Tree at the entrance!!

We love to take our time here in this ever changing landscape. We really never know what to expect and there is always something going on!! Our first stop will be:

Donald's Dining Safari Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant
8:50 AM

We will then stroll around for a bit before heading over to Pandora. We will check out the line for the Na’vi River Journey but are not hopeful that we will get to ride it this trip. In any case, our first FP+ is for:

Avatar Flight of Passage
11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Next we will head to Africa for our two week Safari on:

Kilimanjaro Safaris
12:15 PM - 1:15 PM

Finally, we will make our way to Asia and the Yeti:

Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
1:45 PM - 2:45 PM

We will then head out of the Park and back to OKW for a bit. When we feel rested enough, we will take a bus to Disney Springs.

I am so hoping that the Christmas Tree Trail is up! I absolutely love the themed trees and the snow blowing about. I am getting ahead of myself though because our first priority will be to go and check out the Edison! We will most likely get a drink here and then just explore the complex.

For dinner, we decided on The Boathouse for tonight. I am slightly nervous after Cam’s review but this is Muffin’s favorite restaurant and we are hoping for another great meal here!!. I promise to be honest if it’s not.

After we eat, we will hopefully go to the Christmas Tree Trail and then do a little shopping before returning to OKW


Coming up: November 12th!!.

Sounds like a great day! But, Tara, you're taking to boat to Disney Springs, not the bus, right?

Animal Kingdom is my favourite park also. Sounds like you have a fun day planned and hopefully the Christmas Tree trail is up.

Another great day! I had an ADR for Edison, but got scared away from it with several bad reviews. But going early for a drink and wandering around might be an option to see what it's all about without committing to dinner there.

Your day at AK sounds great! I hope you have a better meal at The Boathouse too. That's the way it is with Disney restaurants these days as one time you can have a great experience but you never know about the next time.

Thanks, Linda and I agree! We had the same type of experience you guys did at Flying Fish last year. The food was okay, the service was lacking and it was so disappointing as that had been one of our favorite restaurants. However! I'm sure we will go back at some point!!

Monday, November 12th

Today, we will head to Epcot for the morning. If we stick to our schedule, this will be our 4th visit here for the Food and Wine Festival and we can get our AP adorable albeit small looking cutting board! We have FP+s for the following:

Mission: SPACE
10:50 AM - 11:50 AM

Frozen Ever After
11:55 AM - 12:55 PM

Journey Into Imagination With Figment
1:05 PM - 2:05 PM

After our journey with Figment we are going back to OKW for a couple of hours before heading out once again. Tonight is MVMCP!!!

We were unable to get ADRs for BOG before the party at first, but I stalked the WDW website and found one eventually for 4:50 PM, which will be perfect!!

After that, we are going to whoop it up at MVMCP!!

We hope to catch:

• A Frozen Holiday Wish
• Mickey's Most Merriest Celebration
• Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
• Holiday Wishes—Celebrate the Spirit of the Season
• A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas
And!

Maybe this year, I will be able to actually get my picture taken for real with the Seven Dwarves instead of photobombing them!
