That's just how I feel when watching the American Adventure show! Really well said I don't think I can make it through 'Golden Dream' at the end without a few tears !

Nice you got some alone time to soak in all the World Showcase entertainment and atmosphere

Nice update. It seems like you had a lovely time exploring World Showcase. It is one of those places that it is almost better to be alone so you can focus on the things you like.

Have a great weekend!

We also have had 2 good dinners at San Angel. My DH had requested it as one of our dinners during our August trip.
I'm SO envious of your walk around World Showcase solo. I have never seen ANY of the World Showcase films. In fact if it weren't for Kim Possible missions, I doubt I would have seen more than the restaurants where we ate!

I love Epcot. I don't blame you for bypassing the video after Maelstrom. I did see it the first time I went to Epcot and while it was interesting, I felt once was enough. And I love the Voices of Liberty and the American Experience.

Sounds like you are having a good birthday!

What a nice afternoon
I love that store in Japan. My nephew has to be dragged out of there \
Can't wait to read about your birthday dinner at Jiko.

I would never, in a million years, have guessed Chris' favorite place!! But I don't blame him a bit. I hear the call of those sweaters quite loudly myself. I have not yet given into temptation but there is always next time. I know it gets mixed reviews but I also really love the perfume there.

Looks like you had a fun afternoon browsing around WS. Can't wait to hear about your b-day dinner!

I'm BAAACK!!!!

After much too long away from the Dis, I am catching up on my TR subscriptions to find out that it was your birthday on Cinco de Mayo

I don't think I had ever heard that so much too late!

It was so great meeting you, I just wish we had more time to chat that day. Glad you got to spend a little time enjoying WS, even if you were by yourself, sometimes that makes it easier

and how funny is it that we both went to cape may for breakfast and Jiko for dinner that day, I was just a couple hours behind you at both places

BTW: I heard a rumor about you anxiously waiting confirmation

There is nothing I love more than wandering around WS ... I never seem to get enough time to do it though. We always seem to be rushing from one end to the other.

Great pictures and I loved what you said about the American Pavillion...I feel the same way!

Sounds like a wonderful afternoon. Spending a few hours wondering around World Showcase not having to worry about anyone but yourself. Sounds a little bit like heaven

World Showcase solo is the best! What a lovely way to spend some time on your birthday.

I can't wait to see American Adventure again...I saw it for the first time last year, and loved it!

I too am so impressed with Voices of Liberty. They are so wonderfully talented. Both American Adventure and Hall of Presidents do make me swell with pride!
I'm glad you took time to enjoy yourself in the World Showcase on your birthday! You deserved it!
