They were "cooking" when I was visiting. The smell is just AMAZING. I didn't think that there would be anywhere to top the Boulangerie for me.....but Karamell Kuche definitely is the icing!

I'm so going to have to look up recipes for caramel and try making it at home. It is way too far and too long between visits for me.

If you're feeling a little down after coming home to reality, then you're probably just plain strange.

Speaking for myself, I usually feel a HEAP down. That's why I write TR's .

Epcot F&W: Update 8 – Late afternoon in Future World

After catching the Friendship across from Germary, we headed back into Future World and towards the Cool Club.





We needed to try some of those beverages from the different countries.
I had tried Beverly but Firefly hadn’t. So, I lined up to take a shot of her reaction….





Sadly, she didn’t react because she knew the camera was on her!


And as we were in the neighbourhood, we headed here…








I honestly couldn’t remember if I had been on this attraction before but when I saw these, I remembered…





I had. It was DS first ride at Epcot and he had been 5.

The low light had scared him and I spent the ride cuddling him and hadn’t really seen the attraction properly.


I certainly don't remember seeing any of these figures or scenes...













Nor did I remember that the attraction was based around the history of paper/writing.














I was really glad to be able to take it all in properly this time and I love the historic perspective of this attraction. It is one of the things that puts Epcot in a class of it's own - the educational aspects of some of the attractions.


The end of this attraction is really cute. I had no idea that our mug shots had been taken along this ride until I saw these sequence of events.





You get to choose the adventure that you want to go on..





And your picture gets superimposed on the various transports and events.











We had done something similar in the Biodome in Montreal; so after seeing these shots, DS is now sold on going back on this ride!


Firefly and I then headed off in the direction of Test Track. Stand-by wait time was 20 minutes and as we both loved this ride, we got in line and got slung around the course. What a thrill it always is!


I was still on the hunt for the cookbook, so I was keen to head off in the direction of the F&W headquarters. I managed to find this last copy (until the next shipment)!





And it has a recipe for that delicious delectable Chocolate Lava Cake from Ireland and the Cheddar Cheese Soup from Canada.


We then headed off in the direction of Ellen’s ride. We had promised franandaj that we would go on this attraction.

We didn’t have very long to wait and we got in our seats. Mini Pooh and mini Eeyore looked like they were having fun!





We headed back to prehistoric times and I managed to snap some dinosaurs before they snapped me!











Nice attraction. The major benefit of Ellen’s ride is that it takes 45 minutes to complete. Just enough time to cool down, rest the feet and allow the food to digest before the next round!


Up Next: Epcot at Night

It seems like everytime we try to ride Ellen it's down! I do agree though, it's a comfortable and entertaining place to take a break!

We weren't sure about Ellen's ride because 45 minutes seemed like such a long time to take out of our day, but we really enjoyed it and it didn't seem like it went for 45 minutes.

Glad you got your cookbook!

Wow! That was a huge update (at least since I'd been back!) glad you got on Ellen's ride, I went on that my first time at WDW (at least I think so, in 1993), I really want to see the Karamel Kuche shop. My favorite is Chocolate covered caramel, and you can add marshmallows and it's yummy, not nuts, no apples, but Fran will love the apples!

I'm sorry you missed the Lobster Roll at Hops and Barley. Both Ellen and American Adventure are some of my favorite F&W rides...nice dark rides where you can relax and sort of snooze off your eatings! Again sounds like great days! Glad you found the cookbook. The Cheese Soup is really easy to make and very good, but you'll have to subsitute boca bacon if your DH is going to eat it....

Maybe your luck will change in December. It sure was nice to be able to sit and relax for a while.

I think it's about planning when you want to take 45 minutes out of your day. Late afternoon seemed about perfect (at least for me).

Welcome back! Hope things are well in your land! That Karamell Kuche is something special. And I'm sorry I missed the Lobster Roll as well.

I'm thinking of smoked oysters as a substitute for the bacon ...although I suspect I'll probably cook it first up without the bacon and then modify from there.

Epcot F&W: Update 9 – Epcot at Night

We had 45 minutes in Ellen’s ride to cool down, rest our feet and allow the food to digest. It was now time for dinner.
I was pretty hungry; but this was the one night that DH would have free and we had planned to try some Blissful Bites together. So I had to wait.

Firefly, on the other hand, was on the Dining Plan. And she had some credits to burn! She also felt like a burger; so we headed for Electric Umbrella.
This was her dinner.





I figured that if I sat there, I would succumb and go get something to eat. So I headed out to take some twilight shots of Epcot. And for those photographers out there, these were taken with my kit lenses; not the prime.














Whilst I was outside, DH called me and said that he was on the way and nearly at Epcot. So, we hung around and waited for him to arrive. And he was about as hungry as I was so, it was off to try more bites.

Unfortunately, I must have had an attack of the shakes and a brain freeze! I just couldn’t seem to get the prime lens to take any decent shots this night.
We stopped by Argentina.





Where we picked up a Roast Corn and Cheese Empanada. Surprisingly, yummy!





DH got this from South Africa. The Flavours of Africa plate. I liked the flavours very much.





We also apparently got the Seared Beef Tenderloin with Sweet Potato Puree and Mango BBQ sauce. I came back and looked at this photo and thought “I don’t remember eating you”. But I must have; and it was obviously incredibly memorable! At least I can’t complain that it wasn’t pink enough!
Firefly got a better shot of the beef than I did and has posted it up on her TR.





I’m sure we ate more – I just didn’t take any pictures after the pink beef!

And I'm really sorry that I didn't get round to all the food stands and menus during the day. I would have liked to have gotten the set. I guess that just means that I'll have to scam a way back to the World during F&W at some stage.


I did attempt a few shots of the World Showcase at night. The colours and lighting are just amazing!














After eating, DH and I headed off to Soarin’ whilst Firefly marked out a spot for Illuminations. DH appreciated my strategy for picking up two fast passes earlier in the day. It is one of his favourite rides.

Despite having fast passes, it took us 45 minutes to get to the attraction, queue up, ride it and come back to where Firefly was. By this stage, it was time for Illuminations to start.

Whilst we were rushing back to where Firefly was, we passed the Desserts and Champagnes stand. I told DH to get some Dark Chocolate Sensation. I distinctly told him to get two as part of the Tasting Plate so that we could share the two between the three of us.

I headed on back to help Firefly defend our territory for Illuminations.


When DH got to us, he came back empty handed. He had picked up the Dark Chocolate Sensation. He hadn’t heard the “two and tasting plate” bit nor the “share” word. He got ONE, ate it and then headed on over to us.

By all accounts it was sensational.....

....It’s for moments like this that the backscratcher come in handy….as a prodding stick! I still reckon DH got off lightly that night!

(And with only one more full day left in this trip, I was getting really worried about not being able to get this item.)


We got a spot to watch Illuminations near the Friendship dock – on the left side. Turns out that we got a partial view of the Globe and the dock impeded our view of the water and light show.

















It’s a lovely show when you get into the right viewing spot. We saw this from the right side the last time and unfortunately the wind was blowing our way...so we got a lot of fireworks particle and smoke over us. I suspect that I'm going to have to head towards Japan and Morocco the next time for a viewing of Illuminations.

Much as I love Illuminations, Wishes is still so much more spectacular against that Castle. I guess it's all about having the right viewing spot, which we have yet to discover.


Up Next: More Prime Night shots

Hi Tracy! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, WWoHP is definitely worth a visit. I'm going to need to try and get back there with DS next time and stay on site.

I think that the people on the DisBoard are just so friendly. And I know I'm not the only one - seems like that there are quite a few lifelong friendships on the boards.

Yes, I did go to two MNSSHP. I'm sure I'll get round to it....eventually.

Hope to see you on my TR again!
