Yippeee! I love love love that show. Tomorrow will be 30 days out, and that usually means that I will come home from my last work day of this school year to a MagicBand box! clapping

I have to admit the first couple times we went to Animal Kingdom we skipped this show and Finding Nemo. I just assumed it was some cutesy, kids show. We'd rather be out seeing the animals or on exciting rides, so we just passed it by. Well on our last trip, my feet were getting tired so we decided to go see it. OMG!!!! It was spectacular. I felt pretty stupid for not seeing it before and it is on our list of things to see again this fall in it's new theater.

My boyfriend had the same feeling about this show and reluctantly accompanied myself and my cousin there last year after I said I refused to miss it two years in a row (since i gave in the year before). Boy did he change his mind immediately! Its got something for everyone. He said its now on our can't miss list for this year. I loveeee those monkeys

If I do nothing else in AK I must do FOTLK. It is my favorite show ever.

My DS2 has been to WDW twice as and adult and has seen it no less than 10 times. The first time he took a boatload of pics, but the second time (that day) I made him put down the camera and he was even more excited. We usually try to get in two days at AK on a trip and so at least 2xd a day is for us AND he slipped away to "do something" only to find out he got in AGAIN! (he was 21, so he wasn't too young). I am pretty sure he did it on the second trip since he and his older brother had time on their own as well.

I guess here is as good as any place to state that one of the reasons we enjoy WDW as an adult family is that, while we are already a closely bonded foursome (plus girlfriends), we all enjoy doing these things together and find happiness in the sharing. Too many people overlook that benefit between the stage of young children and being senior couple.

absolutely Disney Doc, we will meet you and ride some rides! Mike and Remlee went today, I had too much school work to do, but they rode the Mine Ride and were disappointed. We need to plan and get fast passes together.

Was the really good bass singing the King? We have seen two and one is a true bass and the other is a really good actor but isn't able to get to the low notes.

The new theater, looks exactly like the old theater on the inside. I watched the video of the cast being invited into the theater for the first time and thought they were in the old theater.

Yes, I have taught all levels too, including undergrads. So glad to be back to high school. It's kinda full circle, as that is where I started out a few years ago... biggrin

Mike said there's a way to link our magic bands so we can get fast passes together. We'll have to figure that out soon. Glad you made the jump if it makes you happy. Mike's been working on me to move up but I don't think I like the age. I love the younger ones and their innocence and that they want to learn. High schoolers can be so disrespectful and I can't tolerate that. Maybe someday.
