Epcot was fabulous!

Today's blog will be brought to you by our special guest blogger.... Cheryl! She says:

"Epcot was fabulous. We went yesterday (Wednesday). It was not mobbed like the Magic Kingdom, and we walked at our leisure. We went on an Expedition to Mars, and I was mad at Jen at first for making me do it, but it wasn't as bad as I thought. In fact, it was fun.

Then we came back to Earth and explored the world. We started off in Mexico, and went on a 3 Caballeros boat ride. It was fun, and the displays of Mexico were beautiful. Then we went to Norway, and went on a Viking Ride. When we got off the ride, there were 4 cast members applauding for us. We had no idea what was going on, but then they gave us each a special Year of a Million Dreams lanyard with 2 pins not sold in stores. It is part of the Year of a Million Dreams random giveaway where cast members will surprise guests at a certain time and a certain place with a giveaway. Jen was so happy she hugged a cast member! She has been going crazy with these darn pins all vacation. It made her day.

I got a beautiful Chinese shirt and chopsticks in China. I guess I'll have to eat a lot of Chinese food! Then we ate lunch in Italy. They give you bread with olive oil but no butter... yuck! But we ate outside and it was good. Then, we went on an American Adventure, which was an animatronic play with different footage in the background, starting with Pilgrims up until the present. There was not a dry eye in the house.

We visited other countries, and finished up with the United Kingdom, which had a singing group called The British Invasion, which were Beatles imitators. The music was nostalgic, and I found myself singing along with them in spite of people around.

We exited the park, crossed the grass, and all of a sudden, there was our car! God has His hand in every thing. A wonderful day!"

Now, some pictures!!

The Seas! Fantastic! We saw Turtle Talk with Crush... the animated turtle actually answered real audience questions and interacted with us. How, I have no idea, but it was awesome, dude!

Cheryl's are friends, not food!

The sounds and sights of Mexico!

It's like we're really in China!


Japanese toys! Too bad they weren't selling them.

Morocco! It resembles Agrabah...

A beautiful end to a beautiful day!
