There is a place deep in the Pangani Forest of Disney’s Animal Kingdom where mere mortals fear to tread; where unspeakable horrors lurk in the bush; where destruction and mayhem breed. Here, in the heart of the lowland gorilla tribe, we find *cue scary music* LILY, THE TODDLER OF TERROR!
In a rare surge of generosity, Lily and her mom granted an exclusive photo interview to My Mobile Adventures *~*~* this past spring. Let’s take a peek and see what Lily had to say:
“Look! I gots a log. I bet there’s ants and grubs and stuff in there.”
“I gots important business to conduct; if you’re gonna take pictures, you’ll just have to keep up”
“Watch me wrassle this here palmetto (I TOLE you it was important)”
“Hah! TOLE you I would wrassle it. I gots girl-illa powah!”
“Wait, I has an itch…”
“Look I has a tail. Wanna see my butt?”
“Look, I has cuteness. See, here’s my “Oh. My. Goodness!” face. Cute, right?”
“OK, done. You go ‘way now. kthxbai!”
Well, the official portion of the interview was over right then and there. However, through the miracle of modern-day paparazzi-ism, My Mobile Adventures *~*~* is proud to bring you this (not very) exclusive video of the Toddler of Terror, foraging around with her mama. Take it away, Lily!
(Listen – you can hear the Conservation Station train whistling in the background )
Just doing some camera maintenance and found a bunch of videos on both the Canon and my Nokia phone. Here’s some video I took of my new favorite parade at Walt Disney World. Prior to this parade having made it’s debut, my favorite had been Continue reading Move It, Shake It, Celebrate It!→
Tried to drive to Magic Kingdom to meet Chez Bro and SIL but there was heavy traffic due to triathlon. Came back and dumped car at Old Key West again and took the looooong bus ride the round-about way. Finally in the park!
Don’t do it. If I had any free hands, this would have gotten a big thumbs DOWN. However, it is raining on and off and no one has been by to squeegee the outdoor tables. Not wishing to put my plate down in a puddle, I took cover in that alcove near the stairs with the lady’s head on the bannister.
The "crust" – and I use that term loosely, since there isn’t anything remotely "crusty" about it – is bready, which is typical of Sicilian-style pizza. Neapolitan-style pizza does not seem to be available at the window. Since there’s nothing crispy going on anywhere on this thing, the "crust" is a FAIL. If you were expecting more than half a teaspoon of tomato sauce (I was), then you will be disappointed. The cheese at least is pretty fresh.
They are clearly making the take out window pizza on the cheap – VERY cheap. I won’t be doing this again unless someone – ok MANY someones tell me that it has improved.
It’s been fun attending the Flower and Garden Festival on both the first and last weekends of the show. This area evolved quite nicely since that day back in March when I first saw it. Good job, Disney!
Storm clouds are forming. The air is by turns stagnant or breezy but still hot, hot, hot. Chez Bro called and said he’s going down to The Art Of Disney store so I’ve sought air conditioning… guess where?
Two cast members at the entrance to the butterfly garden were handing out free seeds. Mine are California zinnias – not sure if there’s more variety than that but I’m happy to have them no matter what they are.
It is pretty hot inside the Butterfly Garden enclosure. It’s made of a breathable mesh but there’s something metalic about it that seems to draw the heat. This water feature provides for a soothing bacground gurgle.
Between the magnolias blooming near the bag check, the jacaranda blooming near Spaceship Earth and this guy exuding strawberry goodness, the front entrance to EPCOT is just an olfactory smorgasbord. Well done, Disney
I like these banners – the colors are soothing, as is the whole shady stroll into EPCOT from the bus stops. I also tend to like anything with the geosphere pattern on it. It’s the EPCOT icon, after all!
Sometimes I have to carry an empty bottle around Walt Disney World for a good, long while before finding a recycling bin. I love that you do this and I that you would wish you would do it MORE. Thanks!
We picked up maps and brochures at EPCOT last night for Pixar’s 25th Anniversary Celebration. I just remembered they were in my"safari" bag, so I’m going to check it out while riding to the park. looks like there will be country-appropriate character meets around the World Showcase and some Pixar animators holding speaker sessions.
What a shame that Disney decided the world needed yet another character meet. They deleted the actual THEATER to make room for it. This sign is therefore erroneous; there’s no theater inside.
The theater was a respite from the heat and the crowds and I am sure many will miss it. I am also sure you’ll make lots more revenue off PhotoPass for pics of hot, sweaty, cranky tourists who no longer have that little corner of the world into which they can escape. Bummer!
Zero delay getting in – people entering but not throngs. Gonna be a nice day First order of business – I am well-hydrated from my coffee-fueled homework frenzy of a morning, so you know what that means…. LOL 😉
I had the misfortune of checking email and finding that I had a mission to complete which was heretofore unknown. So I did that and now I am at the bus stop waiting to get to the Magic Kingdom. My compatriot is already there and has declared it "not crowded". Hopefully it will remain that way for a while.
