AND! Super glad you enjoyed the twitpic from us declaring our fondness for VBsHustla. Sure, it might not have been a flattering shot, but it's the thought that counts
That photo could not have been more sublime. Everyone looked grand!

Omg, love it! I LOVE that you took that pic! Oh that costume - so representative of America.

Day 4 – March 10, 2010 continued

When we last left you, we had returned from the MK to the Beach Club and were wondering what to do for dinner later that night.

We stopped back into our room and changed into bathing suits, then made our way downstairs. We checked menus at the Yachtsman, the Captain’s Grill, and the bar next to the Yachtsman (which actually serves a lot of the dishes the Yachtsman does and does not take ADRs). There were things on all of these menus that we would eat, so we decided that we’d try to walk up to get into any of these spots for dinner if we couldn’t get into Le Cellier.



Happy that we found a few options for dinner, we headed out to Stormalong Bay. We had to show our KTTW cards to CMs who were posted at an entrance to the pool to be allowed in. We walked all over the place to find at least one chair in a good spot, and ended up back where we’d entered, which was a bit far from the water and in the shade. Laura hung out and read while Kevin and I swam. We loved the lazy river pool and swam and swam to try to find the sinking sand, which we’d adored as children. We found a buoy that cautioned that there was sinking sand below, but the sand did not sink – maybe the suction was not turned on that afternoon. I love that the bottom of the pool is covered with sand – just feels so cool! It’s really a fantastic pool area. We spent a while in the pools, but eventually conceded that it was time to go in to shower and change so we could get over to Epcot for the evening.



















After sprucing ourselves up, we headed out to Epcot and asked at the podium in front of the path that goes down to Le Cellier if there were any openings for dinner that night. The CM told us “just right now” and we said “perfect!” It was about 4:45 at this point – relatively early, but not absurdly so, and we were just thrilled to get in at all!





We had a server who was completely in awe that Laura did not eat meat or cheese, and could not believe that she actually preferred to eat vegetables! She was nice, chatty, and helpful, which we’ve always found our Le Cellier servers to be – they must get great training there. The chef this night was different from the one we’d had on our first visit earlier in the week. He feigned fright and bewilderment when Laura described her veganness and her allergies, but said he could do something fun for her. He asked if she liked a few different ingredients – most she answered yes, a couple she answered that she was not sure. We weren’t sure what would come back, but it ended up being a delicious pasta dish with a lot of different vegetables and an Asian-tasting light sauce. Kevy and I both tasted some because it looked so good, and we agreed it was really delicious. Our apparently meat-only-eating waitress remarked that she was impressed that Laura could eat such a thing! We assured her that even to us meat-eaters, it tasted grand. Kevin and I both got the mushroom filet mignon, and both loved it. For some reason, I have no pictures of this meal. Sorry!

After another wonderful Le Cellier meal, we walked over to Future World and the Land, where we decided to wait in the standby line for Soarin. It had a posted wait time of 40 minutes, which we thought was as low as we’d ever find it not first thing in the morning (and we didn’t know if we’d be in Epcot on a morning), so we hopped in. Even though it was a long wait – probably closer to 50 minutes or an hour of you count waiting in concourse area and watching the prep video – it was quite enjoyable with the video games on the walls. We played some excellent games.









After Soarin, we rode Living with the Land, another fantastic attraction. There were no Mickey pumpkins, but there were lots of other interesting plants and veggies.









Then we made our way across Future World to Test Track, where we decided to take advantage of the single rider walk-on situation. Test Track isn’t very exciting to me (let’s be honest, I drive way faster than 65 mph on a regular basis), but I think it’s more fun at night.



We then ventured into the World Showcase and stopped into the Mexican pavilion to take a look at the tequila bar. We didn’t get anything, but it looked super nice. I think it’ll be the perfect place to stop in on a hot afternoon on our September trip. When we exited, we did get Kevy a Fiesta Margarita outside. Obviously I had to sample it, and it was grand – they’ve gotten rid of the crazy sour apple flavor, but I still call for a reinstatement of the kiwi.

Kevin and Laura checked out some small trees being sold in conjunction with the Flower and Garden Festival. We were not sure how we’d transport them home and also they were outrageously expensive, so we did not purchase any.

We did however purchase some treats in the German bakery – well, Kevy did. And I took some pics of the delicious-looking offerings.


We then wandered the rest of the way through the Showcase and exited at the International Gateway.

I’d been itching to get over to Beaches and Cream since we’d arrived, so we headed there and I got a huge waffle cone filled with delectable chocolate chip mint ice cream (claimed to be “one scoop,” but of course that means like 5 in a huge cone). We sat out at an ice cream cone table and enjoyed the lovely weather while I enjoyed my ice cream.


On our way back to the room, we stopped in the CL lounge for some water (no additional dessert for me – crazy, I know!), and then it was back to our room, getting ready for bed, watching weird random TV, watching the Office on DVD, and to bed!

I swear I posted last night. Weird.

Anyway, love all the Epcot pictures, of course! I came across an awesome picture of someone who I met in MGM back in...oh, '94 or '95. As soon as I get it uploaded, I will post it for you. You will love it!

Have you been watching America: The Story of Us on History Channel? Seems up your alley! There's been one episode so far and it was great!

Looking forward to more!

Great Update! I love all of the pictures from Epcot. They're making me wish I was there right now. Although, when do I not wish I was at Epcot?

And I love how one scoop is always the equivalent of half a bucket of ice cream. I went to a local gourmet ice cream shop a couple weeks ago, and was shocked (and pleasantly surprised) that one scoop actually meant one scoop. It was glorious. I felt like all was right in the world.

My DBF walked up to the Le Cellier podium this past trip to see if they had any openings. They had it when we asked at that moment, but we weren't hungry since we JUST finished lunch at the Electric Umbrella! I so would've rather had the mushroom filet than chicken nuggets. I couldn't justify the cost of eating at Le Cellier if I wasn't going to enjoy it on an already full stomach. Oh well, guess it's going to be saved for a future trip!

I agree that Test Track is so much more fun at night! Normally we don't ride it that late; we do single rider over and over again in the afternoon or so. But we wanted to ride together so we got FP for it. I don't know if it was just because of the dark, but I felt that it was going faster!

Lastly, when we experienced American Adventure this time for the FIRST time, I kept looking at the guy and wondering if that was "YOUR guy"! He was extremely excited to be sharing his knowledge.

Can't wait to see what your MGM pic is! And I will have to check out that History Channel series - haven't heard of it, but I'm sure we'd love it!

That's great that you also could have gotten a Le Cellier walk-up! But it certainly makes sense not to have eaten right after you finished lunch.

And YES, that is "George"! Love that guy!
