Monday we slept in yet again (can we get a YAY!), and I made a big breakfast for us including eggs, pancakes and sausage. Yummy. Then we made our way to EPCOT at 11am for the opening of the World Showcase. Did I mention our resort is a hop, skip and jump away from the International Gateway at EPCOT? That's between England and France for those of you familiar with the countries there. We clocked the walking time at approximately 10-15 minutes door to door. Not too shabby.
I made a special EPCOT passport book for Sean, and we made it to all of the 11 countries to get the booked stamped and a special note from each native. He also had a blast coloring in his Duffy the Bear. Along the way we saw several attractions and rides including the boat ride in Mexico, Maelstorm in Norway, and the 360 degree movies in Canada and China.
Our pit stop around lunchtime was in Germany where we grabbed a drink and pretzels, and rested our weary bones.
We also stopped to see a few characters such as Mulan, Snow White and the Beast (from Beauty & the Beast). Unfortunately Photopass is missing our photos of Snow White (boo hoo).
Just before 4pm the obligatory afternoon Florida rain started, and we donned our ponchos to tackle the last few countries we had yet to visit... and then hopped, skipped and jumped back to our resort to throw our clothes and shoes in the dryer. We decided to throw those ponchos back on after dinner to catch the Illuminations show at EPCOT, and it did not disappoint.
I posted these videos the other day, but they bear repeating...
