Thereís a First Time for Everything

Adventures: LilMarcieMouse (Me)
                    Sue (My DSIS)

Date: 8/20/30 to 8/31/03

Celebrations: Sueís Birthday

Day 12 - 8/31/03

AK and home: The Finally

Mickey got me up at 7am. I dressed and went down to the shop to get a box to ship our excess stuff home in. I told the CM what size box I needed and he went to look for it. While I waited I found an AKL shirt to buy. He came out and gave me a box as he described it ďBig enough to ship a small child in.Ē I said, ďI donít have a small child but I do have a small Ship.Ē I thanked him very much and headed back to the room.

First # 48 shipping some thing home.

By time I got to the room Sue was just waking up. As she got ready I packed the box. It was hard to do. We had mostly towels and decorations. My little ship fit nicely.  Sue was surprised I had done it all and I picked up the box and we headed to the front desk. This box was heavy!!  It was a struggle to get it to the front desk. But I managed. The CM had us fill out a form and then took the box to the back. She can back and told me the charge was only $ 20.00. They could not figure out how to figure out the charge. The box weighed 48lbs. I friend that works for Fed Ex told me it would have cost us over $100.00 to have it shipped if we were charged right.

First # 49 Leaving late to go home.

We went back to the room and called the Bell Service to have them pick up our bags. Then we enjoyed the room for a bit till they came. Then it was off to The Animal Kingdom. First thing to stop for a picture in front of the Tree of Life. Then we headed to Dinoland. It was all ready getting hot. It was a bright Sunny Day!!

First # 50 Seeing Dinorama

We wanted to look around Dinorama. The last time we ďsawĒ it, it was under construction. A troop of acrobats were just coming out so we stopped to watch them. Then as the crowed gathered we went to look around. Since we donít do roller costar rides and the games were major cheesy. We turned to leave. I wanted to play one game, so I sat down to squirt some water at a target. I had 2 opponents. But I won!!! Thatís when I noticed I beat a little girl.

She was crying. So did the only thing I could think of I ask her mom if I could give her the Dino Prize I had just won. Mom said yes. I handed it to her and told her he wanted to go home with her. She grabbed him and hugged him. I didnít mind I couldnít pack him any how.  As we left I saw 2 Dinosaurs that look lonely. So I went up and got my picture taken with them. It was getting hotter so we got water and head toward Asia. Sue wanted a pretzel.

We found them in Discovery Island between Dinoland and Asia. We sat on a bench outside a shop a eat them. Next stop was Kilimanjaro Safaris. So we turned left at Asia and headed to Africa. The closer we got to Africa we could see a crowd looking at the bushes.

First # 51 Devine

AS we got closer I could see what they were looking at DEVINE!!  I wanted my picture with her. Folks were stepping up and she would pose. So I went up. She started coming out of the bushes and the CM with her said she doesnít pose as I told Sue to hurry up and take it. I was happy. Sue didnít want to get a fastpass so we got in the stand by line. I think she was over heated. It wasnít a bad wait about 20min. We got put in the front seat.

This didnít make Sue any Happier She wanted to take pictures but the driver was in her way. I did get pictures. We found out Little Red is still ok and we head to Conservation Station. We strolled down the path and walked inside. Who was standing there greeting?
My main Baboon Rafiki!!!

First # 52 Getting a picture with Rafiki

I wanted my picture with him so took one for me. This was getting cool first Devine, now Rafiki!! We looked around and Sue needed to sit down. I knew some thing saw up so I went to get some soda. I was going to get a frozen Banana too but it started raining. I brought her the soda and was sat for a while. Her energy came back and we headed out. After a pit stop.

We headed back to Harambe and did some shopping. Then we remembered our Pictures we didnít want to be trying to get them at 5pm. So we tracked to the front and picked them up. Then back again. I was hungry so we stopped at Pizzasafri. Sue wasnít feeling well so she didnít eat. By time I finished it was around 3ish and we wanted to tape the parade.

We found a good spot to sit on a ledge near a garbage can and it was in the shade.
While we waited Sue got a little hungry, so I went and got her some popcorn and I got my frozen Banana. I love Mickeyís Jamminí Jungle parade. I have the Magic in the Streets Cd and have listened to the song a lot. I knew the words. It came Jamminí down the way and sang along. Some of the CMís noticed I knew the words and smiled. One even said SING IT to me.  I thought it was cool. Then as Goofy was coming, the video camera died! We quickly changed the battery and it still didnít work. I only got half the parade. So I put it up and enjoyed the rest of the Parade. We followed it down toward exit so we could get back to AKL to wait for Sid.

We got back to AKL and Sue was hungry. So we went to Maraís. I think she had another Hotdog. I had fruit. Sue was worrying about Sid being here on time so we called him to make sure he would be here at 7:30pm. She got off the phone and said Guess where he is? I didnít know. Out front!! Yep he was out front waiting for us because he had nothing better to do. So up and out we went Sue went over to him and I got our Luggage.

Sue made sure every thing got put in the trunk and I climbed into the car. We were both very tired from our romp around AK. We kind of slept to the airport. And found our way to the gate and sat for like 3hrs till we boarded. The flight went well. I put Harry Potter on slept all the way home. Sue also slept.  Mom was waiting for us and My DBro was with her too. We went and gathered our bags and chatted all the way home. DBro asked all the right question and some where hard, like what was the most Magical moment.

We sat up for a bit and talked after arriving home and then we all went to bed. The trip was over.

Final thoughts.

1. I would NOT stay at AS S again. But I would stay at ASMo.
2. I would love to stay at the Poly again. We didnít have enough time to get to know it.
3. I donít care if I take another 4 day Cruise. I loved the Wonder but I would want to spend more time on the ship. We do want to do a 7 day Cruise.
4. I would love to stay at AKL again and do more of the stuff at the resort. I love our room location and would stay in the same room again.
5. I have a new Ride to add to my list of must doís Splash Mountain.  
6. I would do High Tea again but I would just get pastries and/or Scones.  

This Trip was very Magical. I feel Sue and I made most of it happen. Getting the Buttons and ordering the cake asking to meet up with Passporters. One of the biggest highlights for me was riding Splash with other Passporters. I was nice to share that moment of my life with good friends.

I hope my on my next trip I can meet some DisneyEchoears, Now if i only knew when that would be.?  :bomb:

Thank You all for reading my trip report. Iím so glad you have enjoyed it. I enjoyed writing it.
