Day 1 Animal Kingdom!!

We are staying at Old Key West Resorts, a Disney Vacation Club, aka DVC.  We have studio room which means 2 queen beds, little frig, coffee maker, toaster, & paper plates.  Don’t really see us “cooking” much here, and I like that just fine!!

Roger slept in this morning… I finally woke him @ 6:45!!  Animal Kingdom was open early for Resort guests, we were attempting to leave @ 7 & eat breakfast @ AK.  We made it there a little after 8 and headed right to Kilamanjaro Safaris.  First we got a Fast Pass, then got right in line to go now!!

We jumped on a bus to Wilderness Lodge Resort for lunch at Whispering Canyon.  Roger indulged in the Canyon buffet

mmmm... we kinda didn't have breakfast... so we're ready!!!

Our server:

Brenda was The First person to order the Meatloaf Sandwich off the new menu (which just started today).

I love meatloaf!!!

After lunch we had to walk off some of that spectacular lunch.   We headed to Downtown Disney for some shopping.

Now, Roger has gone to the pool, and here I (Brenda) am writing to you!!

Roger here: By “pool,” Brenda means “hot tub.” Or maybe it’s a jacuzzi, since it has the water jets? Anyway, I’m back, with a couple of observations:

While on “Safari,” I spotted these:

Note how the girl's glass's frames have "evolved."

I tried to get a closer look, though of course, young ladies move around a lot (especially when they’re trying to spot a gnu):

Note interesting markings

Later, trying to “Find Nemo,” another interesting girl’s markings:

Study hat markings closely

Here’s a slightly better view:

It's blurry, but there's a Mickey in there!

Then, leaving Wilderness Lodge, some interesting sign:

Mushroom dancer from Fantasia

The Clark Gable of Disney Cartoons

Uh-huh! So long, Folks!

Well, it’s been a long, hot, fun-filled day. Time for ice cream dinner, and then to bed.

Tomorrow: Magic Kingdom!
