Your pictures look like Epcot was pretty empty! That's awesome that you got to ride Soarin' as pretty much a walk-on!!!

September crowds are great aren't they? Our morning experience in Epcot last September was very similar. We walked on all the major attractions. I would say Test Track is our family favorite! We all love it.

I love Soarin' & Test Track, but Mission Space, not so much - I did it one time and that was enough. It was just too cramped of a space for me and watching the screen made me really queezey, I didn't feel good for a couple of hours afterwards. I decided that any attraction that included barf bags in the ride vehicle is one I need to stay away from!

I'm so glad that your mom consented to the wheelchair. My mom fought getting one last year when her siatic nerve was bothering her, but ended up really appreciating it as the trip went on.

I agree with you about Mission Space. For me the anticipation is always worse than the ride itself, and I just don't feel any real pull to it. I'd just as soon skip it, and I'll ride pretty much anything.

Me too, love, love, love Soarin'!!! It's amazing!!! It wasn't as bad as I remembered it being on our honeymoon, I almost bagged it, but glad I gave it another chance....

Based on the title. I knew that the wheelchair was coming. Sorry to hear about her problems, but it looks like she's still having a wonderful time.
It really was a great morning! I couldnt believe how easy it was to just walk on the big rides! The Disney magic was with us for sure!!

Ya, poor Mom, but the wheelchair was the trick, we had minor issues later on because we did it early!

I'm so glad you were able to convince your mom to rent a wheelchair. It's not fun at all being miserable in Disney.
After reading about your past experience, I pushed! It was once in a lifetime trip and it would have made NO sense to push on the way she was...she (and in turn, we) were much happier once she did it. AND it meant I could eat whatever I wanted cause I was pushing a wheelchair in the 90+ degree weather with my MOm instead of a stroller!!

Me too, it's silly to be in so much pain and push through...she was a trooper and to be honest, I think we saw so much more cause I could just wheel her around, she would have needed many more breaks between her bad back and ankle, so it was a blesssing in disguise, after she got over being "an old lady" as she would state!!

SO....I'm so mad right now! I posted TWO UPDATES last night and only see one!!!!!!!!!!!! I posted through our lunch time...hmm, not sure what went wrong but will do my best to get you through there now....the house is quiet...for the minute...so here goes nothing!!! Stay tuned!!

Wow! It looks like you had a great Epcot morning! I can't believe how empty it looks. We went in September and it was a lot busier. I love all of the pictures!

Okay, so I left off with our mission to space, from there, we decided to venture over to Universe of Energy, it seemed like a good time to take a load off, in the air conditioning.





For some reason the ride through the dino's seemed shorter to me this time, maybe because I wasn't with the boys, sometimes these things seem longer with kids!! LOL!! I know they updated this years ago, but I'm thinking it's ready for another...am I the only one that thinks this??

After Ellen, it was time for us to us our Soarin' FPs!! This time we got front row, center! It was my 1st time in those seats and they were the BEST!!! It makes a big difference in those seats, for some reason! I just love that ride!!

Afterwards it was about lunch time, we made our way over to Sunshine Seasons and grabbed our counter service meal, it was getting busy, we were lucky to find a table!!

Here is what we got for lunch, Mom & I got the chicken meal and Jodi got some kind of salmon (I think...hard to tell from the pic!!), we all really enjoyed this meal!!





and our delish desserts!!!!



After lunch we took a few pictures along the way to see Figment, it had been one of our favs as kids, I still think it's cute, and my boys love it, so it was fun to go through again!!

Here are some pics of just us and some scenery on the way....what a beautiful day it was!!





Me in front of the fountain!





Jodi & I, it wasn't planned but I like how our shirts coordinate color wise this day!!



and we make our way to Imagination.....

I love the new updates. The strawberry shortcake at Sunshine Seasons is so good! I discovered a few trips back that you can use snack credits on it! Yum!

I will post some Halloween pictures after the kids trick or treat tomorrow!

Happy Halloween!

WOW!! The food DOES looks good!! We might have to try Sunshine Seasons! The desserts especially look yummy!

I can't wait to see your Halloween pics! My girls will trick-or-treat tomorrow for the very first time (usually our Trunk-A-Treat at church is at night but this year it's in the afternoon). They can't wait!
