When we got to Japan, we wandered into that big store that they have (Mitsukoshi, I think it's called). She was looking for Bakugan things for her DS, but with no success. We kept trying to stick to air conditioned things whenever we found some, so we went through the shops and that little armory display they have, and sat down for a couple minutes. I have old ankle and foot injuries, and they were really bugging me that afternoon.



We sat by that guy for a few minutes before leaving to continue on.







At Sharon's request, we went into the American Adventure. I hadn't been in there for a long time, but it was air conditioned and a long show.





Pooh and Eeyore enjoyed the AC just as much as we did!

I don't really like the American Adventure show. At least, not as much as I like the current Hall of Presidents show. I don't like that it skates over the negative parts of the history of the US. Such is life, I guess. Yay propaganda

After the US pavilion, we went to Italy!















I couldn't help it. I swear!



These were just gorgeous and I couldn't resist taking a picture for my mom.



After Italy, we went to Germany and headed straight for the one place that everyone who followed my PTR would know I was heading...

KARAMELL KUCHE!

Oh my god, I love caramel I'd been wanting to go there since before it even OPENED.

After looking at everything they had available and finding no chocolate and caramel strawberries (), I settled on these:





The marshmallows were great, and the apple was excellent. The caramel was just so good and so creamy and sweet and GOD I WANT ANOTHER ONE!!!

Anyway.

Sharon had a piece of fudge, so it didn't take her as long to finish as it did me (I wanted to eat them both before the caramel melted and made a huge mess), so while I was finishing the apple, she wandered off to look at the crystal shop and take more pictures.

Once we were both done, we hopped on the boat across the lagoon to Future World.



I know we met Duffy Bear on the way to Future World, but I have no pics on my camera, just on Photopass. He was cute.

Sharon insisted that we stop at Club Cool to try Beverly, which was one of the few things I'd never done. I didn't like it, but she didn't get a picture of me making a face! Ha! Honestly, I think coffee is more bitter than that thing was. But I don't like coffee.

After Beverly, we headed for the giant golf ball, aka Spaceship Earth. I think Sharon said she'd never done it, but I may be wrong.











Pooh and Eeyore just liked hanging out.

After Spaceship Earth, we did another of franandaj's recommendations, the Universe of Energy with Ellen. I actually really enjoyed it, but have no pics. Then we headed up to the Festival Center so that Sharon could see if they had the cookbook she wanted. While she was browsing, I decided to reload my gift card.

When I was just about to open my bag, I realized that I'd left my debit card in my wallet in the safe in my room. At Pop. This was the cause of much amusement on Sharon's part, apparently. I decided to reload the gift card later, since I had no way of paying for it

When we finished in the Festival Center, we headed to Test Track. We were originally going to wait until Sharon's DH got there, and I'm not sure why we didn't.



I got that for my dad. The picture, not the car. He'd love me forever if I got him that car.









After Test Track, I was getting hungry again and decided that I was done with the F&W except for one pavilion, so I wanted to go to get something to eat. We decided to just go to Electric Umbrella since it was close by and near the front of the park so we could meet Sharon's DH.



Cheeseburger and fries, fruit cup, and I think that was a lemonade. I didn't get another fruit cup after this. The grapes were always terrible. The only good grapes I had all trip were at Crystal Palace.

After that, with Sharon's DH in tow, we headed back to the World Showcase, this time starting on the Mexico side.

I don't have much commentary on some bits of this, since I don't remember what all they had.

I think this was from the South Africa booth, but I don't remember.



I know this was.







This was mine. It was the last thing I'd wanted at the F&W (at least that I felt like eating on the day). Apfel Strudel and Nurnberger Sausage on a pretzel roll, both from Germany. I loved them both! I want the pretzel roll again!

After this, I think we stopped at one more booth that I don't have a picture of and then we headed out to the front of World Showcase. They wanted to go ride Soarin', so I found a fireworks spot. I got bit to pieces by some sort of bug that was there, but I'm not sure what kind.

I like Illuminations, but honestly? I like Wishes better.















The original plan was to head over to MK for EMH after Illuminations, but that changed when Sharon remembered that she and her DH had promised their DS they'd get him a Build-A-Dino from T-Rex. So, considering that and the fact that my ankles were killing me (yay old injuries), we parted ways for the night. They walked over to the International Gateway to go to one of the Epcot hotels and take the bus from there, and I headed back to Pop. I stopped in Everything Pop to get a couple of bags to make ice packs out of, then went to the ice machine, and then my room.

I found this waiting for me in the window:



I'm still not sure if it's a turkey or a swan, but it had my glow stick

After taking a picture of that, I put it back in the window, fixed my ice packs, and laid down on the bed to watch TV for a while. I think I fell asleep around 11:30 or 12. Not really sure, though.

Why I am posting pictures up when you thought I was picking on you ! I can't believe it!

As I recall it, you VOLUNTEERED to eat the salmon...I only reminded you that you had told Alison and me that you hadn't ever eaten it...nor Creme Brulee....nor Lobster...nor Scallops!










And it was Marie...





...before the warm (so wrong) Brulee




We should have bought one from the Boulangerie in France instead!

Because it's addictive. I think it's actually been proven that there's something in fast food that makes it addictive. Not sure what, though.

Sorry, Brad, but that story was hilarious. I so would have grabbed that thing and launched it somewhere. Like maybe onto I-4...
I think it was "Look, it's a disco ball!" which was almost my TR title

I did! Oh well I looked at the pics from that night online, and they're great, but I haven't finished my Photopass edits yet. I might finish them tonight. Not sure. Those sandwiches were so huge omg.

I'm trying to remember if I washed my face or not... I don't think I did, actually. I definitely got under the covers, though. I can't sleep if I'm too cold.

Go right ahead and steal away I can send you a zip file or something with the original files, if you like!

Oh, you know I'm teasing! I did like the salmon, though. Maybe it was the glaze.

So creme brulee is supposed to be cold, then? I obviously have no idea

It was a hot afternoon, not too humid. Japan was nice and cool.






SHE did it! I only recorded the fact...




Really hot arvo. I was glad to sit and (un)fortunately SLEEP during the show. It must have been sleeping time in Oz.





That toffee apple!



And marshmallow stick



My snack? Well, you'll need to check out my TR for that! (Shameless self-promotion )


This is what I got of Duffy....we must have just relied on Photopass.




Doing a GREAT job at not reacting after drinking Beverly. I'm glad I had the camera and not her!







These will also make an appearance on my TR (when I get up to this point).

Yay! I loved your Epcot updates!

That F&W festival food looks so amazing! I will never forgive myself for being at Epcot in 2007 during the F&W festival and NOT SAMPLING A SINGLE THING. Shame on me and my lack of Disney knowledge!

I love that Sharon is adding pics to your TR! I like getting to see what you were up to along with what your were seeing from behind your camera!

O.M.G. I have to get to that caramel place NOW. I remember when you texted me that picture of the caramel apple I almost dropped dead from jealousy. I am definitely going there in December!
