I've always thought it'd be interesting to find out exactly how much I walk in DisneyWorld. Can't wait to hear about the demise of the pedometer!

Maybe one day I will try orange, but not yet!
Rode the orange one one time! NEVER AGAIN!

It was really interesting - and definitely explained the blisters on my feet I wish it had lasted all week, though.

My DH always has to stop and take pictures here too! I'm always like, "Come on, let's go! "

Me too! I can't tell you how many pictures we have of those cars, especially that silver one.

Rode the orange one one time! NEVER AGAIN!

You're braver than I am for sure!

Great Update!

I was happy to read that you and your FI love EPCOT. This is the park I am most excited to visit. Although, for me, it's because we have Disneyland and so EPCOT will be a whole new thing. Test Trak looked like a lot fun! I am really curious to try the orange side of SE when DBF and I go to WDW. But, I will admit, I am definitely scared. It seems like you have to have the perfect balance of food in the stomach and nerves to make it through!

Do you remember the name of the Mexican soda? (just curious, as we have a lot of Mexican sodas here in Los Angeles)

Can't wait to read more

I don't like Mission Space either. The Green made me sick so I won't even try the Orange. We like Soarin too. I think it is one of my daughters favorite ride at Epcot.

Thank you!

EPCOT is great - it's got so much to see and do. We think the rides there are the best in the World, and then of course there's World Showcase with all its shopping and eating! So much fun!

Test Track is such a fun ride - I think it's supposed to be the longest and fastest in wdw It's certainly one of our favorites!

Yeah, I think the "barf bags" on Mission: Space are definitely there for a reason

The soda was named Manzana Lift - it's apple flavored, obviously. It was really tasty

Sounds like no one likes Mission: Space!

Isn't Soarin' great?! It's definitely one of our favorites too...there's something about it that I find so relaxing

Well at least you can say you've tried it! That's more than most of us here it seems!

DAY 2 – Pt. 3

Believe it or not, in all my times at Disney I had never walked through all of World Showcase. I had explored Mexico since we had eaten there a previous year, but that was about it. Yeah, the first country. Sad, I know.

I had been telling FI since our last trip that the next time we were in EPCOT I really wanted to see all of World Showcase.

So after leaving the Land, it was time to walk around WS! We were going to start out in Canada and my plan was to eat at one of the countries close to there since I was getting pretty hungry for lunch.

We stopped to explore Canada and find Le Cellier since we would be eating there that night!






I really enjoyed the Canada pavilion more than I thought I would – it was so charming; the perfect blend of rustic and quaint.








I was surprised to find the phone booths here – I thought they would be in the UK. Either way, we had to get a picture inside! Unfortunately, the glare of the sun foiled our attempts at a great picture, but they’re cute nonetheless.




Next up was the UK – so adorable!




I was lucky enough to vacation in Europe after my high school graduation and one of the countries we visited was England. I felt this pavilion really does a good job at capturing the English atmosphere. Many of the buildings here reminded me of the cute cottages we saw in the English countryside.




I was hoping to eat at the fish and chips shop in the UK, but when I got to it it just wasn’t appealing to me. FI had decided he wanted to eat at the CS place in Mexico which sounded pretty good to me, so we decided to wait. We eat a lot of Mexican food at home and we needed our Mexican fix!

By the time we got to France, I was starving and starting to get lightheaded. Since Mexico was pretty much on the other side of the world, I decided it was time for a snack.





What better place to stop for a snack than the French bakery?! You can’t beat the atmosphere and the pastry I chose – the Napoleon, was delicious! I thought it to be a great use of a snack credit.




FI isn’t much of a snacker, or a sweets eater, but after one bite of my Napoleon he had to have one as well! We both highly recommend this pasty!


It was lovely to sit in the French pavilion enjoying our delicious snack – so peaceful and relaxing!

At this point, we were really wanting that Mexican food, yet it seemed so far away…

UP NEXT: Will we make it to Mexico?

Wait...stop....YOU'VE NEVER WANDERED AROUND WS???? That's shocking to me! I'm so glad that you actually did it this trip! I have a good guess what your pedometer reading might be as DH and I used to wear them before we brought my DD with us. It's way more walking that you think. For instance, if I asked you to get up tomorrow and walk that distance- you'd probably think I was nuts!

Glad you stopped for a yummy snack. I really need to try and stop in France next time and get a snack. I only stop for the Grey Goose Slushies

I'm glad you finally got to explore the World Showcase. It really is beautiful. I'm usually guilty of not really exploring the pavilions...I tend to skim them! On my next trip, I'm determined to spend more time there!

I'm anxious to see if you made it to Mexico. That's one of my favorite CS
