Great update! I can't believe you ran into 3 DISers in 1 day! You are so lucky! My DH was approached by DISers on multiple occasions during our trip but I was never with him when it happened! Not fair!

I'm glad your son didn't fall out on Space Mountain! I always worry about that with my little ones too!

DS looks so cute in his Indiana Jones hat!!!

Wow, you certainly put those hoppers to good use!

Those burgers and desserts at Sci Fi look so yummy!

Great read so far!

HeatherSue and TheresaJoy- It was so nice meeting you ladies! Thanks for the compliments on ds. he is a major ham.
TheresaJoy- LGMH!!! My mom thought I was nuts for approaching total strangers. I figure, if you wear them, you want to be recognized! I love looking for LGMHs and saw more this trip than when I went for 11 days in June. I think the parks were so packed that I couldn't see between the people!
HeatherSue- No "wapeesh" whip here. It goes "crack" accross bare skin! He did not dare cry, though, because he would have gotten an "I told you so" from me!
praisehisname- I really liked the flatbread, but my mom had to do a little dissecting on her half- she took off the capers and Feta. I thought is was good and something different, too.
ID, Bunchkin, StefaniLyn, khil- Thanks for following along!

Tuesday, day 4: Epcot morning

I am always surprised when people say that they don’t think Epcot is a great parks for kids. My my two are little nerds (that’s quite possible, really), but they can’t get enough of it! There is just so much to see, do and eat. We spend several days there, easily. One of our first stops was Clun Cool. Ds is a funny little guy (or annoying brat if you fall for this)…he likes to stand near the pop (yes, pop, not soda) and convince people to try the Beverly. Luckily, most have pretty good senses of humor. He laughs hysterically and tells people Beverly tastes “like you just threw up”. Honestly, this is one of his favorite things to do at Epcot. I just think of it as him practicing his acting skills.

After I dragged the kids out of Club Cool, we started to work our way around WS again. One of our first stops was in France. There, we saw Marie, which was pretty neat. I’d never seen her before. It was funny, though, because in line in front of us was a dad and dd. He had no idea who they were in line to see. Then, a dad and dd got in line behind us and it was the same thing. Dads! Luckily, I set them straight. They commiserated with one another, saying, “That’s okay, dude. I had no idea who she was either.”
i239/tapezzuto/WDW%20Dec/wdwfall09164.jpg[/IMG]
From there, some adult refreshments were just steps away! Grey Goose and Grand Marnier slushies coming up!

While my mom and I enjoyed our beverages, the kids watched the acrobat/juggling show. Has anyone seen this show? It’s enjoyable, but the “chef” doesn’t talk. He only blows a whistle…about a thousand times. It started to get irritating, but kids are immune to annoying noises, so they enjoyed the show.


Now, what could follow the adult beverages? Pastries, of course. The decision is so difficult. My mom and I decided to share a Pithiviers (butchered spelling), dd had a Napolean, and ds had crème brulee.



We had a brief break from eating and worked our way around the countries a little more. DD picked a pearl in Japan. That was fun for her. They make a big deal over it, and she got the biggest pearl of the day!



While we waited for it to be set, the kids got some strange candy. Ds adores rice candy, so he bought several boxes. After we picked up the pearl, we looked around a bit, then guess what? We went to Sunshine Seasons to eat some more! I swear, in actuality, several hours elapsed…cross my heart and hope for an elastic waistband.





We then spent some time in Innoventions and did the Recycling game. It was actually fun, but the kids did manage to fight over who was going to “drive” the garbage truck.

It was time, then, to head over to MK for TTs and MVMCP. That will be a long one, so let’s break here for now!

Hi Paint! I love living through your trip report! Your ds is so cute and looks like he has a great personality. What was the side dish on the first meal pic at Sunshine? It looks yummy and I have never eaten there. Maybe in March?

Our kids love Epcot too! I told them once that some people don't even go there because they think it's boring - they were shocked!

Oooohh, MVMCP is coming up! We love MVMCP!

We love Epcot, too! I've never tried the pastries in France, but hope to next time. Can't wait to hear about MVMCP!

Hey there! I just came over from the "fingerprint" thread, where you spotted me. I just read through your TR. Great job, nice and concise. It seemed like our park schedule nearly crossed paths several times, but we only saw you the one time. I think we were at DHS for the Osborne lights the same nights. I am looking forward to seeing my picture later in the thread.

I was excited to see the AK pictures you had. We were in MK in the morning in the fog...I was wondering how wide-spread it was...the answer...all over.

I totally agree with your Epcot comments. I think it's probably DD favorite park. Did your kids try the Kim Possible adventure? Our DD absolutely loved it, my guess is next trip she'll probably want to do that first thing!

If you want to check out my TR - just follow the link below. Looking forward to seeing some more updates here!
