Now that's my kind of snack I'm glad you told us which drinks were the most tasty. I was curious when I saw them all lined up.

Great installment!

Hooray for finding a ride without a line. I've never seen too big of a line for Gran Fiesta, but it's a fun little ride. I always enjoy it.

We meant to try some margaritas from there on our May trip, but didn't get the chance. It seems like a cool place, though! Next time, you'll have to try the blood orange one

Mmm, GUACAMOLE. I can eat mounds of guacamole. The only bad thing is that avocados can get to be so expensive! One of my favorite breakfasts is made by smushing and smearing avocado with a little bit of sea salt on a toasted sesame bagel. My mom read about it in a magazine and told me about it since I can't eat cream cheese due to the intolerance to lactose. I was so upset by that because we used to have bagels and cream cheese on most Saturdays. The avocado is definitely better though! Although I have to say that I'd love to have a sesame bagel with cream cheese, lox, tomato, red onions, and capers ...
I love fireworks too. Unfortunately, DH doesn't exactly share my love of them. It's not like he hates them, but he's not like me where he could watch them for hours and hours.

Hmmm.... I have sesame bagels and avocados I might just need to try that tomorrow. Sounds yummy.

I see you are from Milwaukee. I am from Sheboygan. It is cool to see someone on here so close. Keep the pictures coming!!!
Hi! Thanks for reading, I really enjoy writing them, so I'm glad someone enjoys reading them.

My parents live in Kolher! Small world! It's always fun to "meet" people on the Dis from around here.

Yeah, anything with alcohol is my kind of snack

I'm not sure that I'd get the flight again, but it was fun to try them all.

Yeah, I've never really seen a line either - except for when the Brazilian tour group descended on it right after we did in January - but that was definitely a weird occurrence. But it was a nice change of pace from future world.

You definitely should try it. Way yummy. I tried the blood orange margarita in January... and I recommend it whole heartedly!

Day 3 - part 5 - Lost in the Cloudberrys

Sufficiently snacked in Mexico, we decided to head out and move along to Norway!

First up?

Maelstrom



The wait was posted as 10 minutes, but I’m pretty sure it was a little longer.



I don’t mind being in this line, because I’m determined to find a hidden Mickey in this mural. We thought we saw some, but when I got home I referenced my hidden Mickey book and none of the ones we thought we saw were listed… but someday I will find one!



Next up?



I mean we hadn’t eaten in like 30 minutes!

Hungrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry?



One of Panic’s co-workers recommended we try a cloudberry horn. I was a bit leery, because I haven’t met a Norwegian pastry I liked (well, at least in Epcot, because in real Norway, I had some quite tasty ones). Schoolbread was just weird to me, and the sweet pretzel things were gross in my opinion.



I will eat you now!



It actually was quite delicious.

We also got a bottle of water to keep hydrated. In case you were wondering what this exotic treat looked like I was super thoughtful and took a picture for you



On the way out, I picked a fight with some dude, and it went terribly wrong

The cloudberry horn looks good. I've never tried the bakery in Norway though since I always go to the one in France. Everything is just so good there I just can't get away from it (well, except for the occasional baklava in Morocco).

I've been a little bit leery of the Norway bakery. I'm a picky eater, and the things I've seen on here don't really appeal to me. So instead, I like to head to the French bakery! But I might have to try one of yours next time..looks good!

I love Maelstrom...sure it isn't the most exciting ride, but it definitely beats being in the heat

at that last picture. Sorry you lost the battle. LOL.

I saw that picture of the Maelstrom mural and starting looking for Hidden Mickeys. I suppose it would be kind of hard to see in just a picture but I know I read something about a hidden Mickey in there in the Hidden Magic book.

I haven't been on Malestrom in ages just because the line has been so unbelievably long! I wanted to ride it with Weird, but I guess that'll have to wait. Oh, and now that I've read Kingdom Keepers 3, I'm probably going to be scared of it!

Haha, the bottle of water does actually look exotic considering its location! That's not just any bottle of water. I think it's happier than my bottle of water here at home. Bottle envy.

I was impressed with the horn. We always start in Mexico and go clockwise.... I've usually eaten waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much by the time I get to France... but it's on my list. Must start in Canada

I never really noticed that statue before. What exactly do they expect you to do with it - i mean besides be impaled...

I'm not picky at all - I'm quite an adventurous eater - but I'm just not a fan of the bakery in Norway. But the cloudberry horn was tasty. I really need to start the other way and get to the tasty French bakery.

I really like Maelstrom too... not sure what it is... must be the trolls

Yeah it was brutal... Thank goodness we were in disney and the wounds healed magically.

Haha... DH asked me if I found a hidden mickey in the mural and took a picture of it... It was kind of random to take that picture. The hidden mickey book I have has several instances of hidden mickeys in the mural... I just never remember to bring the book with me

Yeah, the line is really weird, it's either like an hour or 5 minutes. You and Weird will have lots of chances over the years to ride Malestrom. Can't do it all at once - no reason to go back then

Haha.... bottle envy. I just imagine your bottle at home staring at the picture, and "condensating" to form a tear

Day 3 - part 6 - Pretty as China

After recovering from my mortal wound, we headed to China.



This pavilion is so pretty!



My apartment is the top one



And the details are just so beautiful. When DH and I first decided on a Disney wedding we looked long and hard at the China pavilion. It’s just gorgeous, but you have to have your ceremony before 8am, and well we’re just not morning people. But looking at it makes me wish I would have insisted we get pictures there…. Even though I love our France an Italy pictures…okay enough random tangent… back to pictures of China…



Panic was also really taken by its beauty and took a ton of pictures



I was getting bored, so I took a picture of her taking the pictures…



Notice the ominious looking clouds rolling in



Oh adorable umbrella – will we need you?



We popped in the shops and looked around for a while.

The shops in China. So many little things to ogle.



Especially the stone flowers. I want one of these so bad – just not very practical!



I always see the pictures of the “terracotta warriors” but I didn’t know where they were. So we found them.



There was a musician playing in the main pavilion, so we listened for a bit. And stared at the ceiling for a while.



We slowly bid the beautifulness farewell…

Haha, for REAL with the bottle envy! Now it got to go to China!

Hey! I think you live across the street from me! My apartment has the stairs next to a store or something.

Oh wow, I didn't see those stone flowers. That would've brought back such memories because we used to have a really small one although not as bright and colorful

The Chinese pavilion is so pretty. Unfortunately, we always seem to walk right past it. I'm determined on my next trip to really enjoy all of the pavilions!
