Eating at Seasons is one of the thing I look forward to most ! Plus it's nice in there and a great break from the outside.

April 12th Epcot day 2

Like I said in the last update .. we were headed back to Epcot. We had only done about half the park the previous day and Jayden really wanted to go back to finish and so off we went .. but only after breakfast and a swim.
We got to the park at around 2 pm. I didn't take a whole lot of pics this day.

[IMG][/IMG]

We headed straight for World Showcase to the UK where we had pretty much left off yesterday. I wanted to buy some Twinings tea for home.

Then we went over to Japan so Jeremy could spend his money. He bought some Naruto wall hangings for his bedroom and a few other things.

[IMG][/IMG]

I had to get a funnel cake once we got to America !

[IMG][/IMG]

The boys enjoyed watching these guys ..

[IMG][/IMG]

We had gone by Maelstrom but it was closed and the boys were sorely disappointed .. so we went inside and did some shopping where the boys got some foam swords and shields. They were very happy about this and even happier when we came out and saw Maelstrom was open !!

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

We walked around until we hit Mexico .. we were looking forward to the Grand Fiesta Tour.

Of course we HAD to try on hats ..

[IMG][/IMG]

Some random pics from our walk around the world ..

We also decided to do another first .. Ellens Energy Adventure. Now going in to this I wasn't thrilled that it was going to take a half hour to do this .. but in the end I was glad we did it .. the boys still talk about it and can't wait to do it again ! Oh well .. it was a nice break off my feet.

Before we left for the night we hit up Test Track again and grabbed a bite to eat in the Electric Umbrella before heading on to Spaceship Earth on last time. Illuminations went off while we were in there and so we headed back to CBR for the night.

Tomorrow .. AK

OMGoodness~I have never seen anyone take a picture with a tiny sombrero!!! That is classic, the twins in the giant ones and Jeremy in his tiny one...LOVE IT!

You know, as a kid and teenager I always thought Universe of Energy was just too long and boring to wait it out for that neat Dinosaur part at the end so as an adult I have not subjected my husband and kids to a ride on Ellen's. I have not even seen it since it became Ellen's...perhaps it is worth a try again?

Awww .. it wasn't SO bad ! I could go without it .. but it's one of the things the twins keep talking about .. so we'll be doing it again next trip.

You gotta have sombrero pics !!

The girls love Ellen, too. It's fine, and a nice break in the AC, I guess?

Naruto is HUGE in our house - did you see the anime exhibit at Japan (was it there when you went??)?

Great update! Especially loved the sombrero's! How was the funnel cake? I'll be honest, I've had them outside of DollyWood before and they just don't taste as good ... so I never bothered trying WDW's. DH had one at MK one year (it had strawberry glaze on it) and he said it was really good.

We all love Ellen's Energy Adventure! I was a bit sad we missed it this year ... but it was just crazy and we felt super rushed.

The funnel cake was great ! Although the people before me had ordered Pumpkin funnel cake and it smelled SO good .. I almost got it .. but kept with regular .. but I'm still curious as to how the pumpkin taste.
