Kat, your inhaler incident was horrible, but so funny when you tell the story. Some people are quick to judge.

Besides that it sounds like you are really enjoying your trip and that is what matters. Your pictures continue to be wonderful. My DH and I have almost the exact same photo in front of the fountain in Italy.

Cheers!

Hi I found your TR yesterday and am finally caught up.

Sorry about the asthma. It stinks I know, my two youngest and myself have it. So far we've been ok for vacations though.

My sister also got married on Halloween this past year. But it was because she didn't have to get her kids out of school.

Also sorry about the rude people you met. Glad you "stalked" that one lady. Some people need to learn to mind their own business. Or at least have their facts straight.

You guys got some really great pics.

Can't wait to read and see more.

I am sorry you had a bad experince. For one she should have taken one look (if that) and kept walking away. Doesn't she realize there aren't any illegal drugs allowed in the park AND your bags are searched upon park entering? DUH!!! And two, she had NO right to blurt out what she said so everyone around her could hear.

If it had of been me in your situation I would have definitely said something to her!!!
Epcot is just awesome, I can't wait to get back and spend some more time going through the Showcase, it really is beautiful.

Yeah that lady was a piece of work but I think she might think twice about saying stuff out loud after I followed her.

Hello! I know, after I reread the installment about that lady I was laughing. It must have been a sight to see for innocent bystanders.

Hubby and I did have a fabulous time even with the rough start and the ups and downs along the way. You really can't help but have a great time when it involves Disney.

Hi! Thank you for reading and most of all so glad you are enjoying it and all the pictures I keep posting.

Your lucky to have never had issues with your asthma on vacation, I will knock on wood now that you didn't jinx yourself by talking about it.

Congrats to your sister and I hope she and her husband have many happy Halloween anniversaries.

I'm pretty sure my "stalking" scared the crap out of that lady and hopefully she learned a lesson. I know her husband looked mortified after showing him the inhaler up close and personal.

Epcot again for the Food & Wine Festival!

Okay so I last left off saying I would be right back and just going to eat a late dinner. That turned out to be a long dinner huh? Anyway, sorry for the delay, I was again side tracked by DH and just never made it back to the computer.

So I believe we had been heading out of France and stopping for several photopass pictures before entering the UK pavillion. Here is one more pic I have to share with you.

http://

Upon entering the UK pavillion I went nuts. I love everything British and would give anything to get to London one day. I ran around this pavillion like crazy looking at everything. Again though, we didn't have any food. After I finished running around we just kinda sat and enjoyed the atmosphere for awhile. I struck up a lovely conversation with a couple visiting from London, I could have talked to them all night, LOVE the accents.

http://

http://

http://

http://

As we started to walk away from one of the shops I noticed Tigger inside, so I grabbed DH and as soon as we walked in Tigger left but the CM standing there said he would be back in a little bit so we waited around. While standing there another CM came up and said we should go to the back of the store because that was were the characters were going to be. Well had the first CM said that to us we would have caught Mary Poppins but by the time we got in the line she was leaving so we just waited for Tigger and friends to come back. We got some cute pictures of Mary Poppins meet and greet area while waiting and then some cute pictures of Tigger and the gang.

http://

http://

http://

http://

http://

We finished with our pictures and then headed outside to find the sun had gone down. I took some more pictures of the UK pavillion at night time as we headed into Canada.

http://

Epcot again for the Food & Wine Festival!

http://

I really, really wanted to get a picture inside the phone booth but the guy in there was not leaving any time soon. I had already been standing there for 20
min. when I finally told DH to just take the picture of me next to it instead.

http://

Then it was off to Canada. I was sooooo tired at this point and my feet had been killing me. We thought about going and watching the movie in Canada but then I remembered that it was standing only, so I decided against it. Talk about lazy huh? I pretty much went and found a nice bench to sit on and just soak up the action around me (I love to people watch) while DH went and browsed some shops. Here I am on my bench, I think I was seriously contemplating how I was going to get up enough energy to continue walking.

http://

Besides the picture of me on the bench this was the only other picture we have from this pavillion.

http://

And of course we didn't try any food from here either. So we headed out of the Canada pavillion which was extremely busy and very crowded at this time. I told DH I was starving and really wanted to rest my feet for a bit so we started looking on the map at food options. I figured eating in the Showcase at a restaurant would be out since everything would probably be booked so we decided to go over to the Coral Reef restaurant and try our luck with a walk up reservation.


Coming up next: Do we get to eat at Coral Reef?

You look EXHAUSTED on the bench...I know it's a LOT of walking at Epcot as well as MK and I've only been to DHS once and don't remember much about it.

Hi!

I was in love with the entire World Showcase, the architechure throughout the entire place is just amazing. But the UK pavillion does hold the special place in my heart.

Oh your telling me! I was beyond exhausted, I felt like I had been walking for a year at least. By the time our honeymoon was over I could barely walk anymore and my ankles had swelled up. I officially needed a vacation from our honeymoon.

Epcot again for the Food & Wine Festival!

So I left off with DH and I leaving the Showcase at Epcot and walking over to the Coral Reef restaurant to see if they had any openings for dinner that night. Thankfully they did but it was for 8:45pm and it was only 6 something at that moment and I was starving. Well after much deliberation we decided to take the reservation and try to find a munchie for me and go amuse ourselves till dinner time. Well of course instead of finding the starving girl some food we headed over to The Seas with Nemo and Friends since we didn't get a chance to ride it yet.

http://

http://

I love Bloat and Pearl so I had to have a picture with them.

http://

http://

We both thought the ride was really cute and enjoyed it, I liked that you sit in clam shells. After the ride we walked around a bit and took some more photos. I spent alot of time watching the dolphins because I love them and they happened to be very active on this evening. I tried to get pictures but they swam by to fast. We didn't get upstairs to see the Manatees, that will have to be next trip.

http://

http://

http://

We then decided to head over to the Living with the Land ride and Soarin since we had missed both of these rides as well. We arrived just as they had closed the Living with the land ride for the night so we walked over to Soarin and the wait time was an hour. We had time to waste before dinner so I was ready to get in line but then DH reminded me of my aching feet and did I really want to stand in line for a ride that we have been on many times at Disney's California Adventure back home and that I also was not that fond of it because I have a fear of heights. I really like the ride regardless of the height part but he was right, it was not worth it to stand in line when I could just go and relax until dinner. So we left and headed back towards the front of the park so I could find something to munch on and do some shopping. On the way that was when I spotted the character spot, ya know that building that they are all in. I didn't even no anything about it, (note to self to actually read the map you get when entering the park). And I of course spotted my wonderful Donald Duck so I was off and running with DH in tow. The line inside was fairly long but moving very well and I was so excited to see all the characters that I didn't even mind.

First up MICKEY MOUSE

http://

http://

Then it was MINNIE

http://

http://

And after Minnie it was my baby DONALD DUCK. Now just so you know when looking at the pictures, Donald was hilarious. I told him right away that he was my favorite so he started pushing DH away and only paying attention to me, you can actually see him push DH in one of the pictures, then they got into an "argument" about me belonging to DH and not Donald, it was adorable. Finally we got a nice picture with DH in it. This was by far my all time favorite character interaction ever.

http://



Continued, I reached my pic limit......

I've never had much of a chance with interaction w/ the Characters!! But I hope this time to get a chance. How do you find them? Or is it just luck of the draw kind of thing?

Epcot again for the Food & Wine Festival!

http://

http://

http://

http://

After our Duck encounter it was off to see DH's favorite GOOFY

http://

http://

http://

After Goofy DH and I exited the character greeting spot and I was on a character high, I felt like I was floating on air. We both agree that it was the coolest greeting ever, all the characters performed at top notch and they were truely having fun, you could tell. I had completely forgotten how hungry I was and how much my feet hurt, that's how happy I was. So even though we had spent a good amount of time with the characters we still had time to spare before dinner so we ducked inside some stores and did a bit of shopping. At around 8:30 pm we decided to head back over to the Coral Reef restaurant and check in and hope we would be seated. We ended up not getting seated right away so we went outside to wait and we took some more pictures.

http://

http://

Finally we got seated at around 9pm. It was a good seat and fairly close to the tank so we could watch the fishies. It was freezing in there though and that made dinner kinda uncomfortable since our noses kept freezing up then running. It was worth it in the end because the food was yummy! We really enjoyed it and plan to visit this place again on our return trip.

Epcot again for the Food & Wine Festival!

The food was awesome.......very, very, very yummy!

http://

I was so hungry I had most of my food gone before I remembered to take a pic of it.

http://

http://

http://

We finished dinner at around 10pm and headed outside to a very chilly night and very empty park. Got to the front gates and bid Epcot a farewell, DH and I would not be returning to this park again on this visit.

We headed up to the empty monarail station and waited about 5min for it to arrive then spent the short trip back to the Poly taking a nap and resting our feet. We made it back to the car and headed back to the hotel and climbed into bed at around midnight. Neither one of us could sleep though because our feet were throbbing so bad. We vowed to make sure we bring epsom salt on our next trip. So we both popped some pain killers and finally fell asleep.


Up next we check out of the POFQ and get aboard the most beautiful ship I have ever seen.

kat, great report so far! It's so romantic... my hubby and I got married at disneyworld 2007 so it's bringing back a lot of sweet memories of my own!

btw, I LOOOOOVE DONALD also! He's my favorite of all the main characters and I NEVER see him in the parks! You're so lucky you got to see him twice!

I can't wait to hear more about your trip! Your DH and you are such a cute couple! I can tell you are totally head over heels in love!

thanks!
