[B]Day 1 Continued…[/B]
We arrived at Epcot and we were all starving so we headed off to the Electric Umbrella. I know a lot of people hate this place but we enjoy it. Although we do hate the lines.
Greg and Joey got in line to order and i went to search for a place to eat. Lucky for me as I was searching they opened the top level up so i was able to find a table up there pretty quickly. So i got a table near the window so i could people watch.
While sitting there waiting for food, it took like 30 minutes for Joey and Greg to come up. And i was pretty annoyed. There were SO many school groups and they were so unsupervised. They were throwing food and screaming and just getting on my nerves. I felt so sorry for the cast member who was up there and had to clean up after all of these kids.
After eating our lunch we headed over towards Nemo and rode that. We didn’t have too much planned out and didn’t think we would be able to do a whole lot do to all of the kids that were there. So we rode Nemo after about a 10 minute wait. And most of that wait was walking the the queue. And then we went and waited to watch Turtle Talk. I love Turtle Talk, they interact with the little kids so well.
After Nemo we went to see if the wait on Soarin’ and it was about a 70 minute wait and fast passes were gone so we did the Living with the Land and then headed on to Imagination with Figment. Another walk on. Must me to boring for the school kids.
We then decided to walk around and see some of the topiary’s for the Flower and Garden Festival. And we went left around World Showcase.
We just leisurely strolled through World Showcase looking around at the shops and restaurant menu’s for future trips.
About 3:30 or 4PM we got a phone call from the resort with our room number. Which was 5536. I didn’t have any clue where it was so when i looked on the SSR map i was disappointed. I wanted the Springs or Congress Park so that we would be close to DTD or the Carriage House. We were placed in Paddock. I was so upset. I really thought this would be a bad location. But as we later found out it was a great location. Not too far from the Carriage House, really not a far walk from Downtown Disney. And we were very close to a quiet pool. So in the future i will request Paddock, Congress Park or the Springs.
At 6PM we had reservations at Tepan Edo in Japan. My review of it was that it was alright. If you have ever had Benni Hana or another Teppanyaki style restaurant you may be a little disappointed in it.
I love going to Benni Hana and Soho (another teppanyaki restaurant that we have locally). And one of my favorite things about going there is the fried rice. Here at Tepan Edo we didn’t fried rice. We got plain rice. And they made some noodles for you on the grill. It was ok, but i was hoping for the fried rice.
Now our chef was pretty funny and entertaining and my steak and chicken tasted delicious. I was very happy with us trying this restaurant out. With there being so many other restaurant to eat at we probably won’t go here again anytime soon.
After dinner we did some more shopping and then headed back to the resort. We got back to the resort and found our luggage had been delivered and we called and had our grocery delivery brought to us as well.
It ended up being an early evening for us but it had been a long day and we knew we had an early morning the next morning with breakfast and my BIRTHDAY!
