Friday, Jan 4: Day 2


Hey everyone, thanks for your patience! My photopass CD just got here so I'm gonna start our first park day! I've realized that with all my photos it's gonna take awhile to get through each day. I'm babysitting a 10 month old right now so I'm just gonna get through what she'll let me and hopefully pick up more later!

So for this day, Epcot was open from 9-9, with EMH from 9 pm- 11 pm. In real life, we're not morning people but at Disney we are! So we woke at 7, got ready and headed to the food court for breakfast. We're pretty quick to get going in the morning so we decided we were best off eating breakfast at the food court each day so we could get to the park and keep moving for a while. Jen and Rick decided since the park was open so late that night, they'd get there later and text us when they were at the park.

We got through bag check pretty quickly and got in line for the turnstiles at around 8:40 and the lines were crazy long! Of course, when they did start letting people in, our turnstile had a problem and it took FOREVER to let people in but then we were moving.

Of course, we stopped for photopass pictures because I prepaid for photpass plus!


Photo0005FourBySix by RN Courtney, on Flickr


Photo0007FourBySix by RN Courtney, on Flickr

I guess it only seemed like it took an eternity to get through the turnstiles because these pictures were taken at 9:05!

We really weren't concerned with hitting much in Future World. On our trip last January, we went to Epcot on our last Disney park day and hit just about all of Future World before deciding to leave to MK because we weren't impressed with Epcot so we bypassed the WS completely! So, we stopped for characters!

After this, it was 9:25 and we decided to check out Test Track because we wanted to see the new design-a-car deal.


DSCN0148 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

It was a pretty miserable rainy day!


DSCN0153 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Unfortunately it was down! Boo. I felt so bad for these CMs who had to stand out in the rain and explain to everyone that the ride was down and answer 4 million questions that they had no answers for. I checked the wait time for Soarin' on those screens and it said 110 minutes so we decided we'd head over and get FPs for later. I guess everyone else had the same idea I did cause there was a huge mob of people waiting for FPs! I finally got them with a return time of 2-3 pm!

We decided to head over to Mission Space because the wait time was posted at 20 minutes but as soon as we got in line it went up to 40 minutes. But we had nothing else to do and the World Showcase wasn't open yet so why not.

When we were done, it was nearing 11, so we made a bathroom stop and then decided to head over to the World Showcase!

First stop: Mexico!

Epcot pt 2




DSCN0180 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

I wanted a picture of the CMs outfits because they were so gorgeous but I felt weird asking!

DSCN0197 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Most of my pictures didn't come out between the dark and the movement! I thought the ride was cute! It was like a Mexican Themed It's a Small World.


DSCN0210 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Then we found Donald!


Photo0046FourBySix by RN Courtney, on Flickr


Photo0045FourBySix by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Then we stopped to listen to the Mariachis for a few minutes!


DSCN0212 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Norway was next of course!


DSCN0213 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0214 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0216 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

We got on line for Maelstorm!

DSCN0217 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0218 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0220 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

We were getting hungry so we ducked out of the movie at the end.


DSCN0221 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0222 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0223 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Instead of making an ADR for Epcot, we decided we wanted to snack around the world! So we headed back to the Kringla Cafe, and got this! Only time will tell if we accomplished our goal!


DSCN0223 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

It was different but pretty yummy!

Next we headed for China!


DSCN0224 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0225 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0228 by RN Courtney, on Flickr


DSCN0229 by RN Courtney, on Flickr

We stopped at the quick service place in China and decided to split Orange Chicken. It was okay, but nothing particularly special.

That's my photo limit for this update! When the baby lets me, hopefully I'll be back on with more!

I love your trip report! Your pictures are great too! My daughter and I like the CM costumes too and when we finally got the nerve up to ask for a picture, we found out they love to take pictures with guests. Now we do it all of the time, some of our best pictures. Anyway, loving your report and can't wait to hear more!

Aw thanks! Glad you're here!

The CM costumes are so amazing. I'm definitely going to have to ask them on future trips. I'm pretty bummed I didn't but there's a good reason to go back right?

I hope to have another update up soon!

What is that from the Kringla Cafe? It looks way yummy! Too bad about Test Track. It was still down for refurb when we went.

It was a Kringla Sweet Pretzel. Not sure of the exact ingredients but definitely yummy!

Yay for the photopass cd coming in! Yay!
Aw man, that’s no good that the rain got TT down, and thanks to that, the other rides were just crazy messes!

Haha, I totally get that about the WS Cm costumes, they’re so awesome, and I love some of them! I love that you guys stopped for characters, I find that they make WS so much more enjoyable, I mean, there’s really only so much you can do in it. Although I think it depends on the person/who you’re with, Paige wasn’t the hugest Epcot fan, so we’ve only got a half day planned there for the upcoming trip.

I like the idea of snacking around the world! Although I do feel like I’d get so full so quickly! Haha.

Excited to read more!!

Epcot pt 3



So when I left off, we had just grabbed a snack in China. Next, we had a character stalking mission! It was about 12:40 and I knew Mulan would be out at 1. I wasn't sure where exactly she met so I asked the CM at the door to the theater for the China movie and she said she usually meets in the garden but because of the weather she would most likely be in the theater today!

So we sat down to wait where it seemed like she would be meeting and two other families were doing the same. Soon enough a photopass photographer came in and said she was pretty sure this was Mulan's meeting spot today but didn't have confirmation. Mulan finally came in and brought with her the HUGE line of people who were apparently waiting for her outdoors and they tried to tell us that we would have to go to the back of this line. I was pretty annoyed because clearly we had been waiting in the right spot but I wasn't gonna cause a scene. However, the photopass photographer stepped in and said we were all here before she was and let us have our rightful places in line!

Photo0053FourBySix by RN Courtney, on Flickr

Mulan was pleasant and spoke about Mushu and we were on our way!

We decided to backtrack to Mexico since we hadn't gotten a snack there and wanted the nachos from the QS place and then cut across to the other side of the WS.

After our snack, we decided to meet Duffy, and learned his story from the books in line.
