I forgot to mention that we purchased our single-day passes through the Florida Children’s hospital website that Victoria kindly posted! :wub: Donations ahoy!
Also at Epcot, had a little fun with my new camera and it’s panorama sweep mode!
We started through the countries, skimping most of them til France. I admit I never spent much time in France, but we hit up “Impressions of France” which I can’t ever remember seeing…VERY nice!! (Also air conditioned! This was a serious heat-wave week when we were there…of course!)
The photo pass man snagged me in the gift shop, but I’m glad he took a few shots with my camera too, cause I can’t really pay for photo pass. He saw the look of starving artistin my eyes! haha
We hit up the bakery after that, and after getting our orders of chocolate mousse and chocolate croissant, my ma was struck with an ingenious idea. Why not share…and DIP THE CROISSANT IN THE MOUSSE?? What an idea! A very very delicious idea, yummm.
Needless to say, nothing went to waste.
(The countries are turning out of order, cause I just don’t know, but it doesn’t matter much…)
We took FOREVER browsing through the store in Japan. I think I forgot just how big that was!! I needed a nap after that! We rested our feet in the American Adventure, and both got a bit teary when the Liberty Voices did the national anthem. We hadn’t done the animatronic/video show in a while either, and I imagine we saw the latest finale footage, because I don’t remember the 9/11 bits, and thats when I started crying. :crying: Well done, Dis…
I did a good deal of gift-buying in Italy, where the dude behind the counter kept…staring…at me. A little unnerving, even more than the total cost of purchases! (All very worth it, though!) My mom enjoyed the magic/juggling entertainment outside while I shopped.
We also took a good deal of time browsing in Morocco, we’ve skipped over it in more recent trips and it was due for some lovins.
Treading through more countries…oh look, Rafiki found dinner! We were getting pretty hungry and tired when we reached China, but the 360 film there is my mom’s fav, and the attendant kindly let us sneak in within the first minute of it starting. Whew! Afterwards, it was decided that we’d skip the fireworks and head home earlier. In truth I was pretty sad about this, but ma can only take so much walking these days. :frown: We tried to get food at ANY place in Mexico, but all was busy with insane wait times. We rode the Gran Fiesta Tour :wub: and decided to try the Electric Umbrella on the way out. Success! It wasn’t crowded and we found reasonable sustenance. Then it was off to the bus stop, and we got home around when the fireworks would have ended. I do admit it was nice beating the crowds and having time to shower before crashing…
Goodnight, Epcot! I’ll see you again when you’re in my budget!
