Tuesday 29th July 2014 – Disney World Florida Holiday Day 9
I can’t quite believe we hadn’t made it to Epcot yet. Hubby’s Mum didn’t really want to visit Epcot, neither did 19yo, but I was really looking forward to it. I wasn’t coming all the way to America, not to see everything.
The day started off very grey and threatened some rain as we arrived. We had left the ponchos behind at the hotel, so thought we were going to be doomed. Thankfully the sun came out and despite some grey sky, it was a super hot day again.
We started off by exploring some of the park near the entrance and ended up in the Journey into Imagination. On to the Living Seas where after a ride to see Nemo and his friends, we were looking at lots of sea life, Manatees and loads more.
At this point when it was time to around the world, hubby’s Mum decided she didn’t want the walk, so left us for the rest of the day as we explored all the different countries.
We didn’t see it all by any means, but we were lucky with some of the character spots we saw, and had a great chat with Mary Poppins. Hubby wanted to try some Japanese food for his lunch, and 19yo wanted Chinese.
Miss A couldn’t decide and neither could I, so we both decided to wait until we spotted something we liked the look of. It would be impossible to try everything, but hubby ended up with a Japanese curry and green tea cheese cake, whilst the girls both had Chinese meals. I got the best of it all and picked at everyone’s meals so I could sample more.
I wanted the ladies in Japan remaking their Hidden Mickey which was a great spot. I had meant to look for more but the trip overwhelmed me slightly and I hadn’t been focusing on the Hidden Mickey’s very much. That’s something to think about for the next trip!
The walk around the World didn’t take as long as I thought it would, but we didn’t deviate from the main path, and next time, I definitely would to see more.
As we arrived back at the hotel, we learned that Frozen would be playing on the outside screen by the restaurant this evening, so after a late dinner as we grabbed seats in the outside patio area, we all settled down to watch Frozen. We also had a bonus from the hotel as we cold see the Epcot fireworks and also the Hollywood Studios fireworks going off. All from the comfort of our seats with a drink in hand.
