I really enjoyed your pictures of the Grand Floridian and the Yacht Club. If I ever win the lottery, I'll book a stay at both of them.
I hope you had a nice holiday.
it is fun to see. Pictures really don;t do it justice. Just a cute area.
me too.

I have not swam there in over 10 years and I want to. Maybe next December we will be there.
I would like to stay at Boardwalk also. Any other of them are nice.
it is so beautiful to look at. I love walking through slowly.

I cruised through your latest pictures this morning. Don't you love going into Epcot through the IG. We actually named that entrance "Christine's private entrance" after a DISer who only ever stays at the Beach Club. I often park at the BC and enter that way, usually with the line that we are going to Beaches and Cream. I think I might start using the Captain's Grille as my latest excuse.

Update 37

We had gotten to the spot that Lorrie suggested (wheelchair accessible) around 8:30. We sat and chatted and Lorrie did not believe she was red in the face so here is the proof. LOL


Well we thought we had a 30 minute wait but it turned out to be a 90 minute. On this night the show was not starting till 10. So we sat around and talked. Chris did go and look for pins I believe. He also brought us back water.

We could see Wishes going off in the distance.

Also we saw the fountain show across the lake in Future World. It was cool seeing it. If I had a zoom lens I could have gotten decent pics. Lorrie might have.

This was the CM in charge of the area. I believe her name was Mia. She was great. Very talkative and so nice.


The lanterns turn on.


Let the show begin.






















This is one of my favorites. No idea why but it is.






Then it was over. It was fun seeing the show again and watching it with friends. Now we start heading out but first Mia offered to take our pics.




Then we started to head out. I believe Kathy and Chris went one way and we all went the other. I think they were parked at a resort.

Some pics as we walk out.




I wish they weren't there.








Con't...

Update 37.1

They were trying to get away from us. LOL. They really weren’t.










I love seeing this as I walk out of Epcot.




The ball.


And then we all got onto our buses and went to sleep. LOL

Up next,

Our last time with Lorrie and Kristel

because it looks like pixie dust and lets face it who wouldnt want to be sprinkled with pixie dust and fly around.

my first stop would be the top of the epcot ball so i could watch the monorails go around me all day.

I love your trip reports, Scott! You always seem to take photos of those little things that everyone just passes by - and those happen to be the little details I like, too!

Great updates! You got some really nice night time shots of Epcot! I tried but couldn't get any good ones last year, but I did play with the settings on my camera and now I think I know a good setting for night shots so I will have to try again next time.

You had a good viewing spot for Illuminations! Cute group shots.
