Sweetie's WDW trip photos May 23-30
POST #1: Epcot
What an AWESOME week I had in WDW.
We stayed at Boardwalk Inn:
The room was nice (no plasma TV, however!) and the balcony was amazing:
We did not pay for the "Epcot view room" so technically this was not one. Still, you could see Illuminations great on the balcony.
The rest of the courtyard was also nice to look at:
Nothing says "vacation" like a case of TAB:
The hotel is soooooooo convenient to Epcot. It took just a few minutes to walk there, so we spent a whole lot of time there. We spent at least an hour or two there every day.
Rather than break them down day by day, here are the highlights of my week at Epcot:
The dedication plaque:
The Seas with Nemo and Friends:
I liked this the first time we rode it. When I rode it the second time I LOVED it. It really grew on me... especially the "Big Blue World" song. That is incredibly catchy. I still have it stuck in my head.
Gran Fiesta Tour:
I loved this. I was astonished to find it was BETTER than El Rio!
There are some hidden Caballeros in the banners:
And a not-so-hidden Donald in the Fiesta part of the ride:
Donald, Panchito and Jose were also nearby for photos:
I don't think I have ever noticed the "wax museum" in the Norway pavilion!
Here is Eric the Red: (he's the one on the left)
In the Norway gift shop I read "Billy Goat's Gruff"
THE GOATS CAN TALK!
Hey! There's a troll in the book!
I loved that book.
This was new to me! A really cool dinner show with a tasty buffet:
Japan's Tin Toy Story:
I was so glad to see this exhibit was still around. I absolutely love it!
I love China! I bought a suitcase full of souvenirs here.
Look closely... that girl is balancing a stack of bowls on her foot.
Flower and Garden festival (at Odyssey)
It was nice walking through this building! I had not set foot in it in a long time!
That's the best of my photos from Epcot.
I had a really great time there. I love both Nemo and Gran Fiesta... but they both had screens turned off occasionally during mys stay. Not good!
As always, I enjoyed Spaceship Earth and it was good to see that a sponsor is attached. The Flower and Garden festival was fun, I saw Gary Puckett do a good show and the American Adventure is one of the most moving shows I have ever seen.
I still have a bunch of other photos of the 3 other WDW parks but my next batch will focus on the OTHER greatest attraction in Orlando...
Coming very soon...
