Today's photo-trip is to Epcot...

I had to throw this one in first...this is my DD's and I at Bongo's Cuban Cafe in Downtown Disney...the decor there is so amazing...from the giant pineapple to the 'bongo' seats at the bar...we loved the Cuban food (at least DW and I did)...and although the service was a bit of a downer (we couldn't get the server to smile), overall I would recommend Bongo's to anyone looking for something a little different...

Now to Epcot...here is my 15 year old...wishful thinking...in a hummer in the showroom at Test Track...this was her favourite photo of our trip:rolleyes: ...

DD playing the Disney 'tag' game in Innovations...one of the few things in Innovations that was worth using valuable park time (IMHO)...it was a good game for kids and everyone 'won' each game...

In the back of the stores in U.K. was this room that periodically featured Pooh characters...I didn't notice until later how colour co-ordinated my girls and their respective characters were. lol

We found this 'living statue' in Italy...(last trip, we found her in France :confused3)...if you haven't seen them, check their schedule...they are so amazing...and funny too... here's DW & DD with a statue...the statue has a firm grip on DD's ponytail and wouldn't let her go :rotfl: ...another fun moment at WDW...got it on video too...

Next two pics are from the 'Masquerade' in Italy...wonderful stuff...first the characters do a little show on the stage...then they come out and mingle with the crowd...this first photo is of the whole ensemble...

The 'Cassanova' of the group then stole away my DD...he took her hand and the strolled around the courtyard as they waved goodbye to us :lovestruc :cloud9: ...they finally ended up on the stage and posed for this picture...DD was shades of red that I'd never seen before :blush: :o :blush:...people were coming up to her and telling her how lovely a couple they were :hug: ... it was too much:laughing: ...

Finishing our day at the Mitsukoshi Teppanyaki in Japan...first time there...loved it...can't wait to go back...*note* - a good chef can make all the difference in the world here...the chef's 'show' is the highlight..but the food was very good too...

Love the Cassanova picture!!! :teeth:

The living statues are a hoot! I've seen them hold onto people's hair, coats, and not let them leave for ages! :)

I've been to Bongo's, had a sampler platter, if I'm remembering correctly???? I enjoyed it there! :)

Very nice pics, Canadave, thank you!! :)

Oh, I meant to say, my favourite is the one of your DD's with Mulan and Mushu. :) Very cute!

Snowwark...I've learned from a fellow DISer that the 'Cassanova's' name is Renaissance (I guess as in Renaissance man?)...

...and the Sampler Platter is what Marylynn and I got for lunch (as well as some other things :rolleyes:)...we really liked almost everything we got at Bongo's...and DD1 still raves about the virgin Margaritta!!!...says it was the best drink she had ever had :drinking1...

...the first time we saw the living statues (back in 2002 and I'm positive the statue was the same person that we saw this time)...anyway, at that time, she held onto a little baby in her arms...and wouldn't give her back...it was sooooo funny :rotfl:
