Mmm……….Dear must be having fun right now at Walt Disney World Animal Kingdom – Me thinking of him & missing him lots right now while lying on bed & watching TV inside Quality Inn International here in Orlando Florida USA………….
Heheh you must be wondering why Dear’s in Animal Kingdom when I keep saying he’a attending Solidworks 2009 World Conference?!!
Well, actually Dear gets to visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom from 7pm to 10pm after attending his day’s Conference Sessions – complimentary of SolidWorks Corporation - YES – Animal Kingdom will be open specially just for SolidWorks guests like Dear for the entire tonight!!
And Dear’s been really excited about it though he’s quite concerned about having to leave early to catch the last Hotel Shuttle back to Quality Inn International………….nevertheless he should be thankful as he gets to enter another Walt Disney World Theme Park- free-of-charge, once again!!
Besides, Dear’s got a personal “MISSION” to complete while in there haha!! Could you guess what that is?!?!
Home to more than 1700 animals from 250 species & sprawling across 500 acres of lush landscapes, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the largest Animal-themed Park in the world!!
And above pic shows the Guide Map of Disney’s Animal Kingdom (taken from Quality Inn International) with its 7 main Areas – Oasis, Discovery Island, Camp Minnie-Mickey, Africa, Rafiki’s Planet Watch, Asia & DinoLand USA.
See above SNOWY pic on the Guide Map - YES YES that’s Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain – where one gets to board the High-altitude High-speed Train zipping through the Misty unknown & coming CLOSE-UP & personal with Yeti the infamous Abominable Snowman at the Mountain peak!!
And from watching the free Disney Channel on Cable TV in my Room here at Quality Inn International, I’ve seen what a a BIG Thrill Roller Coaster ride Expedition Everest really is!! What’s even WORST or BETTER is it arrives at a twisted DEAD end Track & what happens next?!?! HOW?!?! HOW?!! OH DEAR!!!!
It goes BACKWARDS!!!! YES you read right – it REVERSES backwards to the way it just came!! Can you IMAGINE that!!! My GOD!!! My GOD!!
Just as I’m missing Dear again – at 9.22pm – I receive a Text message from him – “Hello Dear I am waitin for bus now to hotel – very sleepy n tired la – u eat dinner already? Tonight abit cold la c u later take care miss Smartie too la”
- Haha lazy Dear’s simply reusing last night’s message to me except just changing “Tonight not so cold la” to “Tonight abit cold la”………….
More than an hour later at around 10.45pm - Dear’s back here in the Hotel & he can’t stop telling me about his Visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom!!
And guess what?!! SolidsWorks has got its very cool very own customised Disney’s Animal Kingdom Welcomes SolidWorks World 2009 Guide Map - with 4 of the 7 main Areas open specially for SolidWorks World 2009 Conference guests tonight :
Authentic Wassalou West African Pop Group :
And Dear being a lover of Barbecue Cuisines (just like Me) chose to have his Dinner at the charming Flame Tree Barbecue Station :
Dear’s really delicious Barbecue Slow-Roasted Pork Ribs with Sweet Barbecue Sauce with yummy Muffin, French Fries & American Coke :
Followed by his favourite dessert (mine too hahah!!) – Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar :
Dear never get the chance to ride the Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain afterall cos of insufficient time as he needs to rush for the last Hotel Shuttle (at 9.45pm) back here to Quality Inn International - but he did roam about in Dinoland USA which he enjoyed as he loves Dinosaurs since young…………
And he did have a great time in his short stay out there being entertained by superb Dances & Music & great tasty Cuisines!!
Now, I thought I attach the following Video on the Expedition Everest Roller Coaster Ride for your viewing pleasure – be AMAZED & real frightened!!
Haha hope you didn’t have quite a SCARE watching the above VIDEO like I did!!
Well, do you still remember that earlier I mentioned that Dear’s got a personal “MISSION” to accomplish while inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom!?!?! And have you guessed what that is!?!?
Haha bet you do ha for some who really know me too well – that’s of course to hunt for Souvenir Magnets for ME heheh!!
But Dear missed the below Island Mercantile cos it was already closed – but he took a pic of it cos he knew I’d like this lovely wooden house ornament with all the Squirrels - this’s got to be my most favourite pic among all in Dear’s camera, & it reminds me of my Cuckoo Clock Souvenir Magnets from Switzerland & Germany which I adore :
Now, the following’s my Disney’s Animal Kingdom Expedition Souvenir Magnet - well, Dear knows that I usually dislike rubberised Souvenir Magnets but he says most that he could find inside the Theme Park were rubber-type ones & not very nice at all except this best one!!
Besides, Dear knew that I’d love to have a Souvenir Magnet with the words “Disney’s Animal Kingdom” on it!!
Heheh am I so glad that he got it for me cos I feel differently towards this particular Rubber piece as I find it really attractive with all the “wooden” Expedition Boxes & the surrounding lovely leaves, & it does says it all for these mischievous & adventurous Disney buddies isn’t it :
Dear explains that if only he’s got more time in the Park instead of having to rush to catch the last Shuttle back to the Hotel, he’d have hunted more for me – heheh he’s forever so sweet & just hearing these thoughtful words from him warms my heart……………
And suddenly Dear droped on my lap a HUGE HUGE surprise that immediately makes me scream & jump up in happiness & joy!!
Haha!! Dear’s got me another super terrific Mickey Mouse on Disney’s Animal Kingdom Expedition Souvenir Magnet :
WOW What are these!?!? What are these?!?! I ask excitedly as I explore them carefully in my hands - I mean I know they’re Magnets cos they cling to each other but I’ve never seen anything quite so cute so cute & so special & unique like them!!
Heheh, it’s actually a Two-in-One Souvenir Magnet that can be separated & placed in whichever way you deem pleased!! And no matter how I place or look at them – I find them adorably charming & so beautiful!!
And I just fall in love with them straight away & so too again with Dear for finding me such unexpected wonderful treasures from the World’s Largest Animal-themed Park!!
Well, Dear says that these 2 Mickey Mouse Souvenir Magnets are very costly but he feels they’re worth it cos the quality & workmanship’s really fine & very good, besides he finds them really special & cool too!! Heheh told you Dear’s got good taste!!
Well, I’ve attached the following Slideshow of all photos taken by Dear inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom - do check out its most beautiful & heartwarming Song Video too :))
Hey, have you ever wondered why Walt Disney World is so popular & so famous that people visit its Theme Parks over & over again throughout many years!?! And that people around the whole wide world never tire of going there?!?
Well, the answer as presented in Dear’s SolidWorks World 2009 Conference today is simply the fact that Walt Disney World holds an eye for all details be they big or tiny, as can been seen in my recent Post on SpectroMagic at Magic Kingdom.
Also, Walt Disney World changes its decorations & sets its themes according to yearly occasions such as in my earlier Post on Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at Magic Kingdom – we see lovely Pink Hearts-shaped Fireworks shoot up into the sky much to everyone’s surprises just cos Valentines’s Day’s approaching in a week’s time!!
Besides, Walt Disney World makes sure that it caters to all ages of people young & old so that all family members get to visit & enjoy its Theme Parks together!!
