One month ago today, we were attending our 3-day get away at Disney World. How I'd love to go back! I'm finally posting pics....
The "Mickey" towels on our bed when we checked into our hotel (The "All Stars Music Resort.")
It was an amazing 2-room suite....here's a portion of DH's and my "room."
And the living room area/Em's room (The green coach, red chair, AND ottoman ALL could unfold into beds...Em found this amazing.)
The resort was divided into different areas. We stayed at "The Jazz Inn." This large drum set was outside our building.

On Friday, we went to Animal Kingdom. Our overall rating: 2 on a 1-5 scale. DH said, "It's like they tried to do a Zoo and an Amusement Park and they didn't do either one well." I agree completely----minimal animals to look at; few rides/attractions; and not many shows. This was also Em's least favorite park, as there weren't many characters out-and-about like in the other parks. (She's still bummed she didn't get to meet Pocahontas...we waited and waited and they kept changing the time Pocahontas was going to "arrive," sending Jiminy Cricket instead. Until we finally got bored and left the area.) They did have a nice playground area. Verdict: If were could only visit one Disney park, this would NOT be the park of choice. It did have some lovely features...
The amazing "Tree of Life" is the focal point of the park. Close-up you can see intricate carvings of many different types of animals. (Though, my humorous DH pointed out that it is "totally ironic that the Tree of Life is the fakest thing in the park.")
Em had fun playing the drums in an African-themed area of the park.

Em helped a worker unroll this giant snake skin, while we waited for the no-show Pocahontas.
We all enjoyed the Lion King show.
