Day 2 Cont
We started touring the pavilion in England. We casually strolled around taking in the sights. We had already decided we were going to “drink around the world,” so we started by grabbing some beer from Rose and Crown. YUM! We had ADRs at L’Originale at 6:30, so we casually walked around, making our way towards Italy, while stopping to drink the “local” beverages. I didnt have a lot of extra spending money, and wanted very badly to buy some goods in some of the countries, but was able to hold off. I really loved the scenery and atmosphere in Morocco, probably my favorite country.
We got to our ADR, and only had to wait a short time before being seated. The food was ok (Im not a huge fan of Italian in the first place) but our service was great. Our waiter recommended wine for us that comes from the same area as where he is from. It was delicious. I also tried calamari here, as Ive always wanted to try it, but in the end, didnt care for it that much.
After dinner, we continued to tour the world. We didnt pick up a times guide when we entered the park, so when it got dark out, we decided to try and find a spot for IllumiNations, since we were not sure of the exact start time. We ended up standing by Japan somewhere (I think). Great thing happened next! While we were standing and waiting, a security guard walked by and asked us if we were having a good time. I replied yes, and then asked him if he had any “inside” hot spots to view IllumiNations. He said that the spot we were standing in was pretty good. Great! Jesse and I stood there for about another 10 minutes, when the guard came back and said that if we would meet him over by Mexico, he would show us a really good spot. We agreed and made our way over towards Mexico. When we got there, the guard was waiting by some ropes, which he unhooked, and then led us down to the docks! It was amazing! We had our own private viewing spot for the show. We were the only ones on the dock, and although the music was kind of hard to hear, the view was great, and we didnt have to worry about the crowds! We sat by ourselves, drinking our margaritas, and felt like royalty because we had been singled out. :laugh:
After the show was over, we went back to our resort. We picked up some beer from the gift store (which is insanely over priced) and sat by the pool playing cards for a few hours. There was a big event going on in DW when we were there, I think we figured out it was some sort of cheerleading competition. There were many groups staying at our resort for this. While sitting at the pool that night, a lot of the teenagagers were interacting, flirting and talking. It was fun to watch this younger crowd, and to see how much fun they were having at the world! We went to bed around 2:00, exhausted.
This tile work is REALLY beautiful.

We had almost finished conquering drinking around the world. Hard to tell right?
