Oh yes....I've done that chilly walk back to the room after a dip in the pool! for us it was usually in the evening after a long day at the parks. My boys love the night swim....for me it's a tad cold!

Club Cool is one of our favorites as well....Beverly faces never get old!

Oh, I hope the blister didn't bum him out too much and you were able to get WS Angie! Great pics too!! We never got to Club Cool this time, Gabe still doesn't like pop so I don't think he would be that interested yet...I was hoping to "trick" DH into the Beverly though....I have to remember for next time!!! Sunshine Seasons is also one of our favorite places to eat, there is so much there that looks sooooooooo good!!! Glad to know how smoothly the GAD passes worked for you!!!! Excited to hear about your WS evening!!!!!!!

Yay, Figment! We've never done this before. On the list!

I'm disappointed we missed Club Cool. Nick's picture is a hoot!

I love buttered popcorn and I LOVE jelly beans... but together? They're yummy? Man, my gotta-do list is getting bigger and bigger! What are the theme park figurines?

Baby Simba! Wonderful choice Noah! (Geez, is that what he's supposed to look like? ) Love the Club Penguin guy rocking out too.

Noah looks so tired lying on the bed. Oh I have a chill now thinking about your walk back from swimming ... brrrrr.

Oh nuts, a blister?

I love love love Living with the Land. I could do just like you and snap a picture of every plant in the place. You should look into doing the Behind the Seeds tour. It's really cheap (compared to other other tours) and it's a great way to get a close-up look at the plants and fish.
Thanks for the tip! I'll have to look into the Behind the Seeds tour! I'm hoping to talk my parent's into another trip and I know my mom would absolutely love it!! Unfortunately, she wasn't able to see Living with the Land when we went last August. She loves to garden and I know she would have loved to see all the plants! Hopefully next time!

I'll be interested to see what you do for the evening.
I know...I was so surprised that Figment had a line....it never has a line! The funny thing was we didn't find it that busy in the park.

It's probably a good thing your boys refuse to try the Beverly...it really is so bad!

It was such a long walk to the buses! I didn't think we would ever make it!

I couldn't believe how chilly it got from the time we left Epcot and got to Pop. If I remember right....I think there was a wind advisory that day. We've never done an evening swim before. I'm sure the boys would love that!

Ahhh...we love Club Cool and I agree Beverly pics are the best!!!

I love that picture of Nick! I laugh every time I see it!

Oh and Club Penguin is an online game where kids can create their own penguins and can interact with their friends online. They play games and activities with them, dress them, decorate their houses. But the big thing is to collect the puffles which are the penguins pets. Anyway, the boys love the game especially Nick. It seems like lately all we see is Club Penguin stuff around the house.

Oh...I know! I was so sad he got a blister and surprised. That was one of the reasons that I had him wear his sneakers around the park because they were already broken in.

That's so funny...I guess I definitely need to watch the Emperor's New Groove now! So many of you think of Kronk when you watch Soarin' and until the other day I didn't even know he was in that movie.

Hi Beth! Thanks! That's probably a good thing that Gabe doesn't like pop. They boys may like it too much. I'm always trying to encourage them to drink juice or water instead. I tricked my brother into the Beverly last trip...I know..it was terrible...but also pretty funny. I'm not sure he has forgiven me yet. Oh well, what are sister's for! Sunshine Seasons is so yummy and they have such great variety! We love it!

Oh..you definitely need to try Figment! We love it..well most of us do! Then again we like any of the ride through attractions.

I know..the buttered popcorn and jelly beans are a strange combination and honestly I was very hesitant to give them a try. It's so weird, it's like you are eating a chewy kernel of popcorn...but they are really good! Of course you would have to love popcorn!

Here's a pic from the Disney Store of the theme park figurines...plus if you look back in the pictures of the one of Nick on the bed...you should be able to see them on the table.


Noah collects all the figurines. So far he's got the villain one, Toy Story, Peter Pan, Nemo, Aladdin...and others I can't remember. He loves them!

Great Updates!!

Disney Art and Animation Resort Announced!! I think this is wonderful for those families of 5 or more. It will give them more of a value priced room which is great!



Thanks for the aerial pic of the Land/seating at Sunshine Seasons. We love soarin and Living w/ the land. we took the living with the Land tour on last year and really enjoyed it.

Figment is a classic to us, we also have to ride it every year.

Looking forward to more......

Too funny that the boys want to try Beverly every time, makes for a great picture

You have my sympathies for the chilly swim...I would have been in a lounge chair with several towels wrapped around me

Hope the blister doesn't slow you down.

Oh and yes, we had great fun doing the Joseph production and especially nice that the three of us got to do it together

I agree..I think the new resort is going to be great for bigger families! I can't wait to see it when it's all done!

Living with the Land was a surprise for us! We never expected to like it as much as we did!

I'm so happy that you had so much fun doing the Joseph production....and I agree it's so much better when you can do things where your kids can participate too and you get to spend that extra time with them!!

I still don't understand why they must try the Beverly every trip. I think it actually becomes a dare between them...to see which one will actually do it!

Yes...it was a very chilly swim and walk back to the room! Just thinking about it is making me cold!!

Heading back to World Showcase for the night!!

April 13,2010--Epcot

Hi Everyone!

Let's see...when I left off, we had visited our favorite little purple dragon, tried a few yummy and not so yummy drinks, did a little shopping and had a very chilly swim. We had also just discovered that Noah had a blister. Which in all honestly, was a surprise for me. I purposely didn't buy him a new pair of sneakers before the trip because his sneakers were already broken in...I figured that would be the better way to go....apparently not.

So, we bandaged him up, asked him how it felt and he told us it was okay. He was excited to head back to Epcot...there was a secret mission he was anxious to try. We had missed Kim Possible last year and it was on the top of the boys must-do list this year.

If you read my PTR, you know our plan was to head back to Epcot for dinner. But after the chilly swim, and relaxing for awhile. Noah got to play with his theme park figurines and Nick read a little in his Club Penguin book. DH and I watched Stacy. It was starting to get late and we figured grabbing dinner in the food court was a much quicker solution! Plus, it would allow us to just concentrate on all the fun things we wanted to accomplish in the World Showcase. (which never seems like we have enough time to explore)

Hmmm...for some reason I'm having a hard time remembering what everyone got...see that is why you should take food pics. (which I am horrible at doing!) Anyway, lets just say Noah had chicken nuggets as they became a staple for him through out the week. Nick had pizza and DH had a burger...I think? What I do remember is that I had the Greek Salad, which I love and have to have at least once on every trip. No one complained so apparently everyone was satisfied with their meal.

After dinner, we hopped on a Epcot bus that again seemed to be waiting for us when we walked up to the bus stop. We were really lucky that week as far as the buses go! We ended up being the only ones on the bus...which was pretty cool.

YAY! We have arrived!

My attempt at getting a really close shot of Spaceship Earth.....

Now, the first thing on our agenda was to head over and pick up fastpasses for Kim Possible. I had remembered we could pick them up in the Innoventions building. So, we wandered inside. We didn't stop to look at too much because that was what happened last trip. We spent so much time in here that we ended up having very little time for the World Showcase. We did stop and look at the new Sum of all Thrills ride. The boys were definitely interested but there was quite a wait. We continued on our way until we finally found what we were looking for...the recruiting station! We were given a fastpass that directed us to Norway to pick up our Kimmunicator.

Since we had a little time...I stopped and took a few pictures on the way--




Hmm...they don't look like they really wanted their picture taken..huh?

We decided since we were walking right by, we would stop and visit Mexico-



Of course, we had to ride the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros. It's one of Noah's favorite rides in Epcot. It really is such a relaxing ride! I didn't take pictures (they never never turn out great without the flash) So, I just sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the ride. So close your eyes... and imagine following Donald through the River of Time...oh and don't forget to look up at the fireworks overhead!

Another quick picture as we were walking through to Norway. (You'll see that I took a lot of these over the water pictures on this night)


We finally arrived in Norway and I snapped a quick picture...not the best either. I guess I should have backed up!


After glancing quick at our fastpass we realized we may have time to try Maelstrom. Now this was the first time we had ever rode this ride and we were anxious to check it out! After seeing a wait time of around 20 minutes, we decided to use our handy GAD fastpasses. A quick picture I took while waiting for DH to get them--

and another....I think this is so funny that Nick is hanging on to the trolls nose not paying attention...because he was watching DH.


Soon we were aboard our viking ship. The boys enjoyed the ride but I felt so bad for the little girl sitting behind us...she was so scared and her mom was doing her best to console her. The boys liked the little drop but were disappointed when it looked like we were going backwards over the big waterfall and then the boat turned forward. Overall a fun ride...probably not one we will do every trip though. The one thing that we didn't really like was after the ride we had to wait awhile as the doors opened to watch the Norway movie and even if you didn't want to watch the movie there wasn't another exit, you still had to wait...oh well. It probably wouldn't mattered so much to DH and I. But, the boys were really anxious to start their mission!!!

So, did the boys ever make it to their mission? Stay tuned?

Glad you got to do Maelstrom. Still haven't done that one, but I really want to. Can't wait to hear how the highly anticipated Kim Possible mission goes.

Great update! Love the F&GF pictures. I like the Gran Fiesta Tour too...it is a cute ride.

Those park figurines you posted in one of the responses are pretty cool!

Can't wait to hear if you made it to the KP mission.

LOVE the WS!! We rode Maelstrom for the first time last spring. We ended up watching the movie because we wanted to, but most people moved through the theater and were able to exit on the other side. Hmm...I wonder if we just hit it at the right time when one show was ending and the theater doors were open. Only a VERY few of us stayed for the movie.

I can't wait to hear about your KimPossible mission! I'm sure the boys will have fun!
