WDW INVASION 3 Day 4
It was time for the Sip and Nibble around the world tour and all were excited!
The MiceChat express picked us up again, but this time, with SummerinFL in tow.
We got the the Electric Umbrella at 10:30am and soon RIxter distributed the wonderful Sip and Nibble around the World Lanyards and shot glasses for sharing that he made at his own expense. The rules for the tour were simple. All participants had to take one bite and one sip from every Food and WIne Festival booth around the lagoon. 26 in all. The burden of buying the items is left up to each person, but there was plenty of sharing and distribution of cost so it doesn't get crazy expensive.
Our tour group decided to visit the visitors center in the old Wonders of Life Pavillion to get oriented for the day.

China booth... SOO GOOOOOOOD!
okay so funny story time. DoomBGI and I were thirsty for some tea, We go to the counter serve restaurant in China. China, tea, it made sense. Ironically they didn't have any. Okay so we ordered diet cokes. Good enough.
But in preparing our sodas the cute little CM girl filled our cups with ice, soda, jabbed a swizzle stick straw into our sodas, and the popped the lid on them and gave them to us.

With a cheer and a hearty thanks to Rixter for all of his planning and hard work we all completed the tour at the Puerto Rico booth.
At this point the group split up to do their own things until the private Dessert party in China. Dusty, BC-DisneyGeek, Byron, Jason, MickeyMaxx, Rixter and I went off to ride Spaceship Earth and The Sea, with Nemo and friends and Spaceship Earth.
