Day 6 Part 3

October 20th - Epcot



At 6pm we headed over to the fishy place and I sent Rob and Kira to get us a big table while I waited out front for B & J.

Rob texted me to tell me that Kira was hungry and getting awfully cranky so at 6:15pm I texted Brenda to tell her that we would be in the seating area eating and then I grabbed some fish and chips for us.



About 5 minutes later I went to grab some more ketchup and I spotted Brenda and Jason!

Turns out they were touring the park with another DISer (kabuki) and her hubby Jason. After hugs and introductions, we joined Rob and Kira and had us a nice little DIS meet.

We had a really great time chatting with them. It was great to see B & J again and Chelsi and Jason were two of the nicest people you could ever meet!

Brenda & Jason


Chelsi & Jason



We stayed until they kicked us out for a private function they were having and we were hoping to stroll around Epcot with them for a little bit but Kira was getting anxious and she wanted to go do some rides.

We said our good-byes and wished them tons of fun and happy times.

All 4 of them seemed to be enjoying their vacation. They are such easy going people who really know how to just relax and have fun!

After we parted ways, we walked over to Norway so Kira could do a ride. She was happy to be out of the stroller!

I love this action shot! lol This was in line at Maelstrom.



She enjoyed being on the ride, but she was still full of P & V



And she didn't want her picture taken anymore





We stopped at the kidcot station where we met a totally clueless CM! She was too busy writing someone's name over and over on a piece of paper to actually help us out so Kira took a little boat and we left.



About this time we noticed that Kira had something in her eye. Not sure what it was, just a small little black thing so after exploring Mexico and seeing Donald wreak havoc in that country, we made our way to the First Aid station.

Rob was able to remove it and we told Kira we would get her a treat for being so good.



Mommy got a treat too




Kira's treat was dripping everywhere so we had to put a bib on her, not something we did often this trip, surprisingly!



We finished our treats and walked over to Canada because we wanted to see the new Oh Canada movie.

We were happy to see that the new and improved film was MUCH better than that old crappy one!!

Rob had some nice moments while we were watching OH Canada. Kira was cuddling with him and singing a little bit. She likes to sing along to songs, even ones she doesn't know the words to

I grabbed the camera and shot a little video of them.

Day 6 Part 4

October 20th - Epcot






After the movie, it was almost time for Illuminations but we knew Kira wouldn't like being really close to the water, where we normally watch it from.

We grabbed our stroller which was parked on the top level of the Canada Pavilion and I asked Rob if he wanted to watch it from there.

It was a perfect spot for us, we could see most of the show, it was far enough away for Kira and she could run around if she wanted to because there was hardly any other people around.










We enjoyed the show as did Kira and we were happy that we stayed where we did because it was rather loud from there!

Before the show started this guy who was all decked out in "Bond gear" as we called it (jump suit, climbing gear, etc.) entered a building and came out on the roof.

Rob and this guy next to him started laughing about the whole thing (it was rather mysterious and all spy-like, really!) and then they laughed even more when the guy opened up his secret work station which was located in the chimney

Hard to see but here he is on the roof...




Well during the whole show, Rob and this guy talked about his "secret mission"
and joked about this guy being a super spy.

Boys


So after the show when the guy came down, of course Rob just had to go and ask this guy just exactly what he was doing.

Turns out he was controlling the laser and parts of the show. He told him that they were laughing about all the spy stuff and that they were betting that the guy would reappear in the red phone booth after the show like Maxwell Smart


So what did Rob do????

He asked him to get in the phone booth so that he could take a picture of the guy!!

I was already down the stairs at this point

The guy was super nice and actually got in the booth!!!




On our way out we stopped near Innoventions and showed Kira the gorgeous lights embedded in the stone. She LOVED this and we let her run around for as long as she wanted.










Here is a little video of my girl enjoying the lights

http://cassworld.ca/videos/epcotlights.wmv


We took our time leaving...just enjoyed the atmosphere of Epcot at night. Kira liked walking around seeing all the lights.





We had a good day at Epcot and we were all very sleepy!

Sounds like Kira enjoyed Epcot and wasn't so cranky today.

Love this picture

I am really enjoying your TR-we have a little girl who will have just turned 3 when we go so it is interesting for me to see what your little one likes (like the lights). I think we may be dealing with more than one tantrum for our toddler when we go in Jan.!

Hey there Cass... I didn't know that they sang the Canadian National Anthem when they first open... I would have loved to have seen that (heard actually). I will keep that in mind for my January trip.

I didn't realize you spoke French as well...Does Rob? Are you teaching Kira as well?

And um... Do you make that amazing Cheese soup or have restaurants nearby that do? And ummmmm........ Can I come for dinner?

I have only been as far into Canada as Niagra Falls... so I think my only "Canadian dining" was a TGIF's shamefully.

Every kid's different but what really worked for Kira was letting her out of the stroller as often as we could

I have only been as far into Canada as Niagra Falls... so I think my only "Canadian dining" was a TGIF's shamefully.

I didn't know about it either...I just kept wondering why no one was being seated and everyone was just standing around

I used to be bilingual but I don't speak it very often so I've lost a lot of it. Rob doesn't speak any french except for what I've taught him. We have the word "Toujours" inscribed inside of our wedding bands. As for Kira, we are sending her to a french immersion catholic school when she starts kindergarten

I have the recipe for that soup and one day I will try to make it!

Sorry to burst your bubble but TGI Friday's is an American restaurant and I think there's only a few of them in Canada. I've never been to one myself. I hate going to American restaurants here because they never have my iced tea, they only offer brewed tea
