    I'm told that really applies to Sanaa so I switched to Boma. Wouldn't be able to see the animals from the restaurant windows at Sanaa at 9:30 pm. With Boma, I realize you can walk outside from lobby level to an overlook, though.

    Yeah only crazy people visit WDW during the summer. The rest of us head to St. George and drink beer on the back deck of the Blue Parrot.

    I think that they are released about 30 days out from the event.

    Everything done for us! We aren't staying long so not much to do, really. But when we were 60 days out my big sister woke me up way too early to do our fastpasses... good thing she's a planner!

    Correct. The windows at Boma are a) pretty well blocked by palms and other foliage and b) over look the walkway to the Mara and the pool. But yes, for a 9:30 reservation, you would really need to go to an overlook to be able to see any animals.

    Have they released the pictures of all the medals yet? If so, I missed them.

    Yeah, so much better than last year's. I'm digging the Death Star Challenge medal.

    Next year I'm hoping to add the one on the far right - whenever runDisney decides to open registration for the Light Side, Rebel Challenge or whatever name they decide for the race in Anaheim.....
