It's a wild world

Our planning suggested that animal kingdom would be less crowded today. It's not the most popular park, and the Christmas decorations are a bit more low key here. Our planning was good - we did everything we wanted here, and waiting in no lines!

We got fast passes for Everest right away, and then went off to see the nemo show, and grab passes for dinosaur. Nemo is one of our favorite shows at disney. It's original music, with great puppetry, and of course the great story. Because it's original, it has the least amount of weird cuts and the smoothest story, in my opinion.

The dinosaurs are scary! Hope they don't time travel back with us.

I just love wandering around Asia. The pennants are so colorful, and the backdrop of the mountain is great.

You can't go too far at disney without seeing a turkey leg. We decided to share one, and Paul decided to dissect it rather than eat like a cave man (who, according to Paul weren't around during dinosaur times, anyway)

I love Everest!

This was the only time we were in animal kingdom to see the parade, and it was the jingle jungle parade! We were facing the sun for most of it - oops - but still managed to have a great time before leaving.

Dinner was at kona cafe. A less than magical moment yesterday was aloha isle running out of dole whip. It boggle the mind. Anyway, the poly has a never ending supply, so we got our dole whip (minus the pineapple juice, boo hoo)

Dinner was at kona cafe. I had read some bad press on it lately, but our experience was great. We did wait a bit here for dinner, but were seated within about ten minutes of our reservation time. Crab cakes and warm pineapple bread (with honey walnut butter omg) to start

Lamb for Paul, duck for deb. Both were outstanding.

Creme brûlée for Paul, panne cotta for deb. yum.

We dashed into the magic kingdom to check out a shop and caught a small bit of the electric parade. Thankfully, Cinderella and Snow White had moved on to flirting with other gentlemen, so we went safely home to bed for an earlier night.

We're going on a safari tomorrow! Better get rested or the alligators will eat us up!
