We had a late start and even later breakfast but the morning was going just fine, we weren't in a hurry.
We then grabbed the monorails for Epcot.
I love this photo, C is all talk to the hand.
We got stuck for about 15 minutes while they rotated in an express monorail so I snapped this pic.
Time to spin!
After snagging a Kim Possible FP we headed over just in time for WS to open. It was so crazy hot all weekend ( Summer in FL ) but everyone was in good spirits. I felt sorry for these guys though.
We sought refuge in Mexico.
Then we were off to get our Kimunicator.
With a quick stop at our favorite sweets shop in Norway.
Then we were off and had asked if we could start our quest in the UK Pavilion as we had reservations at the Rose in Crown for lunch. So we headed over to the other side of WS, stopping briefly at the two shops to browse for goodies.
Love this shirt with the old logos on it.
And I loved this shirt with a newerish? logo on it.
As we had time to kill we stopped off in Canada. Probably my favorite outdoor country, Mexico being my favorite indoor.
Then we stopped in to see O'Canada.
Then it was time for lunch, so we headed over to the UK to check in.
They sat us....outside. Ugh, no worries, just enjoyed the view! LOL
The restaurant itself is not very large, they 2 dining areas inside and the pub with two rows of outdoor seating.
The atmosphere is great though and our waiter was wonderful!
We went with the cheese dish appetizer for two.
I had the Fish and Chips
Phil had the corned beef..
and C had the kid's pizza.
While we were sitting there we saw two launches coming from the direction of the Kennedy Space Center. Does anyone know if there was anything going up on Saturday?
After a satisfying lunch we moved ahead with our top secret mission!
Danger is my cup of tea.
Then we started to head out and stopped at the Imagination Pavilion and Spaceship Earth.
The new camera in the Imagination Pavilion
We did the Piggy Bank Adventure in Innoventions where you learn how to save money.
This little piggy went to the stock market...
And this little piggy was a loan..
It would not be a proper day at Epcot without a trip on SSE.
Ok, here is my penance to the Flash Photography gods. I almost never break the rule but I wanted to snap this scene because I wanted a photo of that radio on the right side, the round one. See, we own the exact same one in our garage, it still plays 8 track tapes! teehee
Phil made the goofiest face possible and apparently if you have sunglasses on your head it confuses the computer. LOL
Then we headed back to the Poly for the evening, we opted to walk from the TTC back to the hotel as it was right there.
It was on our way back to the room that we discovered this magical place.
The Neverland Club - A supervised dinner adventure for children.
Turns out the Poly has this AWESOME club that children that are potty trained to 12yrs can go to for a few hours while mom and dad go have some fun of their own. Minimum is 2 hours and it's only $11.00 an hour and if they are there from 6-8 pm they get fed dinner!
How cool is that! Well, it gets better, it's themed after Peter Pan, you walk into the building and you're in the Darling nursery and in order to get into the play area you have to walk out the window. That's right, the window.
It had it's own private theater to show movies for the kids, an mini arcade with FREE games of umlimited play, a play area with game systems, a princess area with Disney dresses for dress up AND it was all themed to Peter Pan so the decorating is wicked cool!
They didn't have anything this cool when I was growing up. LOL
What an awesome option for kids, my daughter had a BLAST! They did crafts and she even made me a keychain!
So fast forward through dinner, we ended up going off site for it, nothing special to report here.
After we get C and we are walking back to the room I hear some familiar music being pumped out of the speaker system. I look at Phil and scream, "We have to get to the beach! I haven't seen this show since I was a kid!"
So we haul but down to catch the last few minutes of the Water Pagent show. It's one of the cool little secrets that they do on Bay Lake every night. I haven't seen in over ..eww. maybe I don't want to say how many years. LOL
To end the day we stopped off at the arcade and burned $25 bucks on games and went for a swim in the pool later to cool down.
Overall it was a nice, relaxing weekend with a few minor setbacks but we still enjoyed ourselves. I'm exhausted, time for sleep!
