Orlandio Recap - Epcot/Monday

Originally, we didn't plan on going to Epcot, but I am glad we did. We got up at 8:30 to finish packing up. We checked out, stored our bags and grabbed breakfast at the resort.

Much to my surprise, all of Epcot is NOT inside the ball. I honestly thought the entire park was inside that giant white golf ball. It wasn't until a I saw a map a couple days before we went to the park that I realized that it was like a regular park, outside. In fact, there is NOTHING inside that ball. Eric was shocked that I thought that, but I have always thought that, and it is still hard to believe! Haha!

At Epcot we started with the rides. We went on the Space mission on, the test track, and a tour of their green houses where we saw some really innovative ways to grow food! I would love to try some of them!

We got a Fast Pass for the Soarin' ride, but it was 3 hours away, so we started checking out the country pavilions. They are all really well done. I loved the shops that had items from the countries. It wasn't the generic Disney stuff.

We had a delicious lunch in Morocco, one of the best meals we had I think!

Me in Mexico, this hat was only 15 bucks!:

Eric in Norway:

This is in Japan. You could pick out a clam, and this lady would dig out the pearl and they would put it on a necklace for you. She made it a big production making us clap and cheer and stuff. It was pretty cool!

This is the only picture of the two of us that is not a self portrait! A nice lady offered to take this picture when she saw Eric taking a picture of me!Our fast pass for Soarin' was for 3. We thought we could quickly go on the ride before we caught our bus, but at 3:15 we were still in line with no end in sight, so we had to leave. Our shuttle back to the hotel was booked for 3:55. We just barely made it back to the hotel before our shuttle left.

We had a bit of a wait before our flight, because we got to the airport early. Our flight was uneventful, and it was suprisingly warm when we got back! I was really expecting it to be colder. Thankfully, our car started with no issues and we got home at 1:30.

It was a great trip. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to go to Disney World, and I am looking forward to taking my children there one day!
