Wow - all those drinks make me thirsty! Think I'll follow you guys around WS next trip

That spot at Rose & Crown where you ate looks perferct for viewing Illuminations. We saw it from Germany our last trip sitting right up at the railing and it was awesome but your spot looks even better. I have seen it from Japan up on the deck after eating at Teppan Edo and that was beautiful too.

Sounds like your daughter is enjoying her trip - she looked so cute with her gelato mustache!

So explain the Kim possible thing to be. Do I need to reserve a time? My kids are definitely wanting to do that
You need to go to any KP kiosk and get a "fast pass" - that's what it reminds me of. It tells you what time to come back and which kiosk (there are 3 or 4 in WS) to report to. Once you check in and get your instructions and your "kimmunicator" that tells you what country to go to to begin your mission. SOOOOOO much fun!

Hey, it's after 12pm where I am!!!!! I never even thought about up top in Japan. That would not only be a nice view, but no crowds, too!

Love the update! I am looking forward to playing Kim Possible (and drinking around the world)!

I also love the perfume in Norway! Isn't it amazing? I don't carry it around in my purse but I may have to start. Do they have a travel size? I will have to check.

R&C looks yummy!

Oh! How did I miss your update? I love the Kim Possible adventure you're sharing. I want to do it next time! R&C looks really good. Funny how WS has so many drinking opportunities - Jim would say that's so you don't get so bored over there!

An edjamacational trip!

So after Jeff finished his frozen pea soup from Mayheeko - it was off to use our oh so coveted FPs in Future World.

Jeff decided on this trip that we needed to do something new - which of course I think any normal person tries to do each trip. But even if it's not new for us, we can at least find something new for Ally. This time?







Yes, Martin Short was calling and we told Ally she would LOVE IT! Round movie theater - screen goes all around you - how fun!!!! Yeah? No. Not for an 8 year old. Not when there are RIDES! And CHARACTERS! We walked out, asked her if she liked it.... her response? "Not so much."

So at that point, we decided we would not be stopping in France or China for a movie...... I guess ducking past the movie in Norway after riding Maelstrom was not the precedent we wanted to set a few years back.....

But it's all good! We're heading back to Future Word now....



Have I mentioned before how much I love Epcot during F&G? I love it any time, but it is so pretty all in bloom!!!











So after torturing Ally with a 20 minute movie in Canada, what better way to make it up to her than letting her sample some coca cola products from around the world!!!!

Wait, Ally - save this one for the last - it's the BEST and it's called ..... BEVERLY!!!!



Oh, yeah, not so much, huh???

There are so many ways that Epcot is trying to improve their kid friendly image, not that they really need to, IMHO, but I guess every little bit helps. So why not stick a CM in the middle of FW and give them hula hoops????



Hey, it keeps em occupied while the parents are shopping the kiosks! And anything that allows me more shopping time is A-OK in my book!

Finally, what is a trip to Epcot with a ride on.....



Now, I do have a confession to make here. While I think Soarin is a great attraction, I really do! And I think it is a must do each trip, I really do! But quite frankly, I am getting bored with it. There! I said it! I got it off my chest! And again, I encourage everyone to ride it, but with the exception of Puddy, who I can watch every time and laugh, I just don't get excited for Soarin anymore. I'm sorry.

After soarin over Cali, we decided to hit The Seas, since we did take Ally out of school on Friday, and since we WAS studying marine life in school, we decided to get her some edjamacation this here trip.

So we hopped on to ride along with Nemo....















AFter the fun ride, it was time for some learnin - we don't just give our youngun a book to write that thar report, we done brung her to the source! She wanted to write a report on manatees, well, then manatees we'll give her!









Done! This is now an edjamacational trip! And now that our youngun done learned all bout dem manatees, time to move on out! After all, we's stayin at that thar resort with all them animals!!!! Yee haw!

Up next, dinner at Boma and the adventures with BSIL!!!!

I've never seen a travel size, but I carry a suitcase so it fits like a travel size in there!

Another great update! Love the pictures of Nemo. I haven't been able to get pics on the ride yet, but I think I may have finally figured out the settings on the camera.

I feel the same as you about Soarin'. Movie needs to be changed. It would be nice if they had several different movies and you never knew what you would get.

Are there any Manatee viewing areas around you? In the Winter, they like the area around the electric plant here and there is a viewing center. Maybe you can make a trip next time you are in Orlando in the Winter.

Epcot has been my favorite park from the first time I set foot in there - and it was just a day trip years ago, on a cold, wet, rainy day in February. And I still love it!

I have two cameras and I have not taken the time to play with the settings on either one of them. I really need to read the manual!!!!!

Yes, we have a place nearby to see the manatees, but I have yet to do it....

Oh, I love the idea of multiple movies for Soarin! That would be great!

I'm in!

A little late to the party but in Great TR so far!

Impressive on the upgrades and I love your lazy start to the trip. I must do the Kim <insert drinking motion> Possible mission next time. Sounds like a really good way for me to get my not yet fulfilled full WS fix.

I mean the kids must do it.

Me...I'll meet them in Germany, with some Bier.

Looking forward to more.
