Day 2 part 1

So the next morning started with a bang! The alarm went off and we all sprang into action! It was so funny, we were headed to Epcot and Bryan said to the boys, "are you ready for some Test Track?" Eric replies " I big, I'm buff, I'm tough and I'm 7" we all DIED laughing at that one! Once we were dressed, we headed up to the Artist palette. It wasn't a far walk at all! The breakfast options at AP were pretty decent but we really were disappointed overall with their selections, especially for the kids! Breakfast done we headed to Epcot...it was already SO HOT! All the news stations were saying that this was record breaking heat indexes for that time of year! Once the park opened, Bryan headed to FP Soarin and met us at Test Track!




This was GREAT! We got our photopass picture afterwards! I wish all the photo rides did this!

We then took the obligatory car photo!



Afterwards we headed over to Mission Space! GREEN TEAM ONLY!



Eric taking his job VERY seriously!



Matthew, not so much!



The liftoff!




Gotta love Space Mickey!



After that ride, we went on AGAIN!!!



The wait was minimal!



After our 2nd journey to Mars, we went over to use our Soarin fastpasses and FP'D Test Track along the way!

Once at Soarin, we asked for the front row and we were so excited that we got it!



After we soared over California, we decide to ride Figment! The kids were less than thrilled but we LOVE to torture them so off to visit our little purple friend we went!



Bryan LOVING putting the kids through it!




More torture! Doesn't Eric look thrilled!



If nothing else, Figment was a GREAT way to cool off!

After Figment we made our way to Club Cool! You have to love free refreshments in the heat!



We all thought that Matthew had previously tried Beverly but we were wrong, and so the torture continues!




After we chased away our thirst, it was time to hit the World Showcase to make it to our lunch at Rose and Crown. This was a first for us!

Don't you just love the new park decorations? So cute!




We got there about 15 minutes before they opened, so we stopped in the shops!

Payback for the earlier torture! HA!




I never realized that you could be seated outside so when I checked in the hostess told me that sitting inside was a request NOT a guarentee, OK WHAT, in this heat! So of course I requested to be inside but I had a TOTAL panic attack that we might not get it!

Fortunately we were seated inside! YEAH!




Bryan had the meat and cheese plate for an appetizer, he said it was delicious.....



I had the apple and stilton salad(which is like bleu cheese) it was GREAT!



For our meals, Bryan had the bangers and mash, without the mash(diabetes) and veggies instead! Pathetic looking isn't it? He liked it though!



I had the trusty burger, which was terrific!



The kids both had pizza and french fries! For some reason, they rated these fries "the best on property"...goofy kids!



For dessert Bryan had the no sugar added fruit trifle which he raved about...



I had the special celebration cheesecake, it was good!



After lunch, it was time to head out, we had some shopping to do and some money to spend!



coming up next, not your typical park exit!

I soooo love this thread! My two sons and I are leaving on Saturday night for a 9 night stay at SSR. It is exciting to hear about the resort since it will be our first DVC stay as well.
You have a beautiful family and I am really enjoying reading about your trip!

It was super hot...and I would not have been happy to eat outside either. It would be nice for Illuminations, say non summer time of year. Loads of fun so far, can't wait to see what you all are up to next.

Better late than never. I can't believe you're already on day 2! We were in Epcot on the same day. Boy was it hot! For us it was the hottest day for our trip.

Your trip sounds great and I can't wait to read more. I'm so glad Eric got over his illness. Do you think it was the heat?

Thanks so much for taking pictures of the food. I'm a visual person and I love looking at the food before deciding if I would like to eat it. Although the pictures of the bangers don't look so good, might have to pass on that. The deserts look fab!

First full morning in Disney -- isn't it a wonderful feeling to wake up there?

You got a lot done -- how were the crowds while you were there? Was it crazy?

We ate outside at Rose and Crown, but there were huge ceiling fans going the whole time so it was quite pleasant. Your cheesecake looks delicious -- I had the Bailey's trifle and that was yummy, too.

I hadn't noticed until this update how much Eric looks like Bryan and how much Matthew looks like you!

Love the update!! How is the green side of Mission space? We have not tried it yet and would like to try this side first to see how the ride affects my youngest son. Can't wait to read more on your day in Epcot.

That was hilarious what Eric said in the morning

Is green side on mission space the tamer side? I have always been afraid to give that a try

Another Beverly victim..that never gets old



I had no idea you could get a burger at Rose Crown and Pub. Is that listed on the menu or did you have to ask for it?

I always wanted to go there for meat and cheese platter, but did not think I would like the bangers

That salad looks so good.....

Great update

great report so far! Love all the food porn! did Bryan enjoy all the sugar free desserts he had? I'm glad he had those options since this was your first trip with diabetes. How were his sugars? Love the "do you know how lucky"...speech, I think we all must say it at least once during our vacation, remind them and make them aware!

Can't wait for more.

Totally enjoyed that update, Diane! Very nice! Looks like you all had a great first part of the day at Epcot. My morning sounds EXACTLY the same!! FP for soarin, and Test Track and Mission Space for DS7 and DH! Glad to know Rose and Crown was a good lunch -- we were not sure we wanted to use our TS on Brit food, but it looks so inviting in there!

Looking forward to the rest of EPCOT!!

Wow that trifle looks to die for!!!

Your ending has me waiting with bated breath!!! Ha ha!


BTW, you sent my kids the postcard, right? If so Amelia was beside herself with excitement! She couldn't believe Mickey actually sent them a postcard. She immediately drew something for him to give to him when we are in Disney. So if it was you (and I'm pretty sure it was) THANK YOU!!!!

Hey Diane!!! Hope things are well with you guys today! Great update, loved it. Luke is so excited when you post your updates, he has me read them to him : ) Halarious about Eric in the morning (doesn't surprise me, but halarious!) I can't believe that about Rose and Crown, thank God you got to eat inside, that would actually sway me frommaking ressies there in the summer. Can't wait to hear the rest of day 2. I'm working on my next one but Tim with the video conversion is taking a long time.
