Yay for single digits!!

Love, love your mousekeeping envelopes - too cute!

Your plans sound wonderful and I hope you have a great trip.

BTMRR was open during MNSSHP in 2008 when we were there as we rode it.

Onwards with the countdown…

8. EPCOT!!!!

Yes, I put a whole park onto my countdown but Epcot is the park that DH and I love and liked the best last time. We are really looking forward to spending two days there on our upcoming trip. I sure hope Lilian will like it as much as we do.

Favorite photos from our last trip:





What are your favorite parts of Epcot? What is your favorite country pavilion and why?

I like this video because of the great views in some of these photos. I think it would be really cool to fly over Epcot to take pictures!! Tilt-Shift Photography Video of Epcot

Hi Stephanie!

We loved Epcot too! I'm so excited I can finally particiate in one of your questions since we've finally been there now!!!

Our favorite pavillion was Germany. My DH was really looking forward to Germany, he was stationed in Germany for a few years (many years ago) and had wanted to spend some time in that country. So when we got there he got a beer and a brat, and we spent probably about an hour just hanging out and talking about different stuff, kids snacked on a big pretzel and it was really nice. Most of the other countries we kind of breezed through, but we stayed in Germany a while, the kids lived the miniature village and train there and they spent about 20 minutes watching that - we had to drag them away. They wanted to go back to see it again the next day so we did.

I love Epcot -- it is very close to tied for first with the MK. We LOVE Soarin' and Mark really likes the Nemo ride (I think it is more the birds out in front that say "Mine Mine Mine").

I think our favorite country is probably Germany because we both have German in us and we love the food, the beer and the shops there.

I love Epcot too! I know people sometimes say it isn't as good for kids as the MK, but my kids love spending time at Epcot. There is so much to do here that doesn't involve standing in lines for rides that it makes it fun for kids! Make sure to hit the Character Connection. Best place to meet all of the Fab 5 in one swoop.

Oh, I can't wait for Epcot! I love, love, love Germany- my BIL lives there so we've on several trips. I can't wait to be reminded of this place I love. I've scheduled an hour for each country on our upcoming trip because I know I'm going to need it!

Hooray for September!!! I can't believe our trips are THIS MONTH! So exciting.

My DH and DD say that Epcot is their favorite parks. It's a tie for me between MK and Epcot. I think our favorite country is Germany because that's where we've spent a lot of time. My DH always has to get a glass of Beck's beer and we always share a delicious pretzel. My DH and I are both 1/2 German so maybe that's why we like it there so much. Plus, the buildings are just so cute! I'm also 1/2 Italian and my DH is 1/4 Sicilian and we think it's neat that Germany and Italy are next to each other at Epcot.

My favorite part of FW is definately The Land. We adore Soarin', Sunshine Seasons and Living with the Land. It's a great place to be!

I'm so glad you liked Epcot Karen!! I do not think we saw the miniature village and train, so we will be on the lookout for it in Germany. Thanks for sharing the great memories!

Epcot is great!! (Perhaps another park makes my countdown...)

I'm part German too.
