South African Safari!

We went to South Africa with Adventures by Disney!

We started off in Cape Town.  We went to visit Robben Island.
The tours are given by former prisoners, and it's very insightful. 
Nelson Mandela was held prisoner there. This is his cell.

We spent some time in wine country also.

We saw African Penguins!

I also met elephants.

We took a plane to get to the game reserve for our safari.

Landing in the savannah

We saw The Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, elephant):

We also saw giraffe and zebras!

It was a truly special trip.

The Letters of Lord Henry Mystic

S.E.A. is a precursor to the beloved Adventurers Club!

Lord Mystic is featured in the Mystic Manor attraction in Hong Kong Disneyland.

The Explorer's Club restaurant next door, features some of his correspondence:

The ladies to whom he is referring are below

Below is the Magneto-Electric Carriage.
It's the ride vehicle for Mystic Manor.

He's talking about the Eiffel Tower! Picture below

Masks are pictured below

I'm hopeful these artifacts and letters will be interesting to fellow S.E.A. & Adventurers Club fans!

Shanghai Disney & Hong Kong Disney!

We did it.  We finally visited all the Disney parks in the world!
We went to Shanghai Disneyland & Hong Kong Disney!

First, we went to Shanghai Disneyland.

The Castle is gorgeous

 We got to have lunch at Club 33 in Shanghai Disney!

Nice Balcony view

We loved this mosaic of Thumper.

We especially liked Pirates Cove, and not just because it had our favorite ride - Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure!

We even found Oswald the Lucky Rabbit!
We'll take a crate of carrots, thanks

I sat in the Queen Of Hearts' Throne.  
I'm sure she won't mind.

There is a lovely little garden at the top of the castle:

And we came home with a friend:
Hello Shanghai Club 33 Mickey

Then it was on to Hong Kong!

Welcome to Hong Kong Disneyland!

You can meet BB-8 at Hong Kong Disneyland!

We loved Mystic Point.

We met StellaLou!
