Day 5 Flashback :)

May 19, Day Five: MGM day



Today had us heading back to DHS. We got to see Indiana Jones and LMA shows and Streets of America (but not the umbrella from what I can remember). I believe we ate ABC Commissary.



After finishing up at MGM, we headed back to our favorite park to eat. Tonight’s dinner was at Biergarten. I thought the atmosphere was great but the food was so so to us. We continued our exploration of WS. I got to meet one of my favorite characters:



It was bittersweet as this was the last time we were going to be in Epcot. We never were able to see Illuminations, so it is a big priority for us to make it this time. We spent A LOT of time in Epcot which is probably why it is mine and DH’s favorite park.

Tomorrow’s the last day of the flashback as it is our last full day at Disney. We left the resort at 7:00 a.m. to head back to Indianapolis.

Another great flashback! I've never been to Epcot but it is the park I'm most excited about.

You inspired me to dig out my pics and do some picture of picture magic for my own flashback- 17 years ago!! Be sure to pop in and check it out.

loved the new updates. You got some wonderful pictures at Epcot. That park is starting to become my favorite too. Up until last trip I never really got excited about it but I was sad that we didnt spend more time there last trip. We had one of our best nights exploring the countries. This girls trip we are going to spend one full day in epcot. I am excited for that. I am disappointed though because they moved the race date up a week and now we will miss the flower and garden festival. I was bummed about that. Well theres always a next time right!

Thanks for sharing your flashbacks!

Stephanie
sorry I have been MIA (I have to change my sub folders list)...
anyway sorry to hear about all the closures but all the more reason for a return trip...

great flashbacks!!! I love Epcot without all those concrete picture thingy in the front of Spaceship Earth...

and yes don't forget the sinus/allergy meds...both Gwendolyn and Joe became sick on our trip. I was happy I had both benadryl and tylenol sinus with us!

OH! BTW: Danny and I love POFQ it is our favorite (I know we have not stayed at many on site) but we loved how quaint it is (I love you picture of Sassy's with all the NO memorbillia). We also loved thinking this was the New Orleans we love! Being from NO this is what people dream of until they see the real thing...don't get me wrong I love NO its just run down and can be stinky...but, it can be romantic and it is lots of fun!!

Great flashback Stephanie! I really hope you make it to Illuminations this year. What are your dates again? We are heading to WDW Sept.24-28 for a quick trip to celebrate Josie's b-day. Maybe our dates overlap a little but I don't remember off the top of my head.

Have a great week Stephanie!

I think your flashbacks are a great way to look forward to your upcoming trip, and I'm really enjoying them.

Hi Stephanie...

all caught up w/ the flashback pictures...

have I mentioned we were there in 2005 too, in late April early May that was our first trip w/ kids then and stayed at POR. (teins surprise 6th b-day trip)

You guys ate at some amazing TS places, places I have yet to eat at after almost a decade of going...that's why we keep going back

remind was this your first trip?

The pictures are great!


Oh KatMark Go HAWKS!

Hope you will LOVE Epcot!! So many great things to see and experience. I am glad you dug out your photos--they were great!

I love Epcot! I am excited to go back and see it to see if the appeal is still there. I am curious to know how much was the influence of those we traveled with versus our true opinions.

The Flower and Garden Festival just gives you another reason to go back!!
