Day 270 in my adventures toward getting ready for Mickey and Walt Disney World in October.

Today’s plan was to investigate Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  I have a dvd all about it that is, admittedly, a few years old, but I know so little about it.  I spent one morning there several years ago.  We had to leave the park early to make it to Fort Wilderness for the Hoop-Dee-Doo Review.  (BTW: Seeing my brother in his Detroit Lions’ jacket and a tutu dancing across the stage was a highlight in my life!)

I really enjoyed our morning at Animal Kingdom, but I have never been back, for various reasons.  So…I wanted to study the layout and make some plans.  We have Disney’s Animal Kingdom down for one morning and one different afternoon/evening while we’re there.  I’m thinking for the morning Kilimanjaro Safaris, Festival of the Lion King, Kali River Rapids and Expedition Everest (for those brave enough–not me!)

And for the afternoon I’d like to explore DinoLand U.S.A. and Discovery Island.  I want to ride DINOSAUR and Primeval Whirl,  and I want to experience Tree of Life (It’s Tough to Be a Bug), and Finding Nemo: The Musical.

What do you think, Disney Pros?  Can it be done?  If it’s too much I’ll be happy with just wandering the grounds.  🙂

Meet you at the Kingdom!

BTW: Still waiting for my Magic Kingdom Starbuck’s mug.  I’m so excited!


Still Planning

Day 222 in my attack on being healthier to meet up with Mickey

My plan for today was to “pick myself up, dust myself off, and start all over again.”  I am back at work after two sick days.  My stomach and head have been acting up.  Today my headache is gone, and my stomach is at least manageable.

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about our trip to Walt Disney World in October.  God’s timing is amazing.  I should be able to get through surgery and any following treatments well in advance of our trip.  Thank you, Lord!  I can hardly wait to be sitting at Olivia’s Cafe at Old Key West having dinner with my family.  And I’m even more determined to go for it.  Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, here I come!  And this might just be the time I finally ride Kali River Rapids.

Meet you at the Kingdom!

BTW: Thanks for all the messages and prayer support.  I can feel the prayers.  Here’s a great verse from the Bible that I ran across today: “God Most High, have pity on me!  Have mercy.  I run to you for safety.  In the shadow of your wings, I seek protection till danger dies down.  I pray to you, my protector.” Psalm 57:1-2  God is good all the time!
