Chapter 9 – Epcot Morning and Hidden Mickey’s - Part 2

Chapter 9 – Epcot Morning and Hidden Mickey’s - Part 2


Since we still had some time before the DISmeet, Andrew and I decided to head back and use our FPs for Soarin' and see what else we could ride and look for more HMs. On the way to The Land Pavilion we passed these guys.





After riding Soarin' and again taking note of the two HMs in the Pre-show and the four HMs during our flight, we decided to take a quick ride on Living With the Land. There are numerous HMs to be found here, and they start quickly in the loading area as the ride begins.





There are always some interesting plants to see and information to be learned during this ride.

Monstera........I would expect this to be bigger.........or scarier looking???




Who knew the Water Lily was completely edible??? Wonder if that is with or without the frog sitting on it???








A Hidden Mickey




The famous Nine Pound Lemons. Some of these just don't look the part, but at least there is more than one this time.


Another HM


There are a few other Hidden Mickey's on this ride but I was either looking the wrong way, or just missed them. Oh well, I guess another excuse to go back and find some more.........

My next DIS meet was getting close, as they had made it in the park through the International Gateway, so Drew and I headed towards World Showcase so we could meet up. Time for one more picture at my favorite Epcot fountain......


As we left the fountain and started towards World Showcase I hear a voice say Marv??? I look up and there is the person I was planning to meet this day. Okay, don't spoil it for the others who may read along after you, but who can figure out from this picture who I am finally getting to meet??? (It's a real toughie!!!)





Next Up Chapter 10 – Another DIS Meet

I know!

We rode the Land this summer and all of my HM pictures are blurry because I didn't see them until we were mostly past them. Oh well.

I have seen that one on other occasions. I think it is permanent (but easy to change obviously), although it isn't unusual for the Imagineers to add and remove them at times.

I saw a few others but was too far past them already. By the time I got the camera around and tried to focus I knew it would be a waste of time! I guess we both need to go back sometime.........

Um Where are your pictures??? I know during the show it is almost impossible to get any but you can surely get the preshow--- Another reason for a trip back I guess.

I agree that there are so many HM on Living with the land that it is hard to catch them all on a single trip.



My next DIS meet was getting close, as they had made it in the park through the International Gateway, so Drew and I headed towards World Showcase so we could meet up. Time for one more picture at my favorite Epcot fountain......

That is one of my facorites too. But heck I really like all of them being full of water and all.

Funny because I don't ever think about taking pictures of the videos. Not sure why; maybe that just seems wrong in my mind somehow??? Still shots of videos.....

Guess I need to do a better job of learning from your TRs and get lots of pictures of everything so I have lots more to post when I do my updates! Or at least when some of them come out bad, plenty to choose between!!!
