Trip Report Animal Kingdom – Lots of Pictures 2018

We started the day with 8:00 am breakfast Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) at Tusker House. They were opening the park early to hotel guests even though it was not an Extra Magic Hour (EMH) day. We walked in at 7:20 am to head to our ADR. As we passed Pandora the cast members were saying…

Kilimanjaro Safari – Animal Kingdom

I love the Kilimanjaro Safari.  I know it is one of those attractions you either really love or really don’t care for.  I admit there have been times we have been to Animal Kingdom that I have chosen not to ride on the Safari because it is later in the day and the animals always…

Our Trip Report – Overview

This was our first “real” vacation in three years.  Our lives have pretty much been in turmoil since the end of 2011 when we found out the company my partner worked for was being sold.  So after weathering the sale of the company, looking for a new job, moving half-way across the country, starting our…

The ’50’s Prime Time Cafe’ reminds me so much of my parents and grandparents houses.  It is one of our most favorite places to eat just for the fun atmosphere and of course the delicious comfort food.  We had to take my parents here for dinner just to poke fun at the similar decor to…
