Yay for riding Maelstrom and the Gran Fiesta Tour!
I agree! I know that refurbs are necessary but they stink. I hope if I do get to go to Disney during the spring, it's AFTER Splash opens back up! Hahah. Yeah, so far I've heard great things about the new Test Track! I can't wait to ride it!

I love those two rides! I wish the World Showcase had another ride!

You know, as many times as I've raced to enter World Showcase when it opened, I've never experienced the countdown in Mexico...very cool! I wonder if they do it every day? Because if they do, then, of course, I MUST experience it for myself!

Very pretty views from your bench...I love to take little rest breaks in World Showcase and just soak in the vistas. Great photos!
AHHH YAY! I'm so glad! I missed your comments. And thank you so much! You are too kind.

I don't know if they do it every day or not! I imagine so, though! Hahah, hopefully you'll be able to see it!

Thanks! Yeah, we weren't really intending to stop and sit there, but it was a great spot to wait for the rest of the family and the views were wonderful!

Definitely my favorite park, not for the rides, but for the atmosphere oh and the Food & Wine Festival lol

I love the picture if Jacob running towards you as if he hasn't seen you both for weeks!

My guess us that you're going to Biergarten next
ME TOO! It's just marvelous.

I agree. There is something about the atmosphere there that just cannot be beat. Although, I do love the rides as well!

Aww thanks! Hahah yeah, he's precious.

Good guess! Nope, not Biergarten, but something similar(ish)!

Me too! I agree, the World Showcase is so much more enjoyable when you can actually see it! Hahahah seriously, you need to go give them a whiff! Yes, you do know!!! Hahha.

P.S. Are you ever gonna update your TR again?

Do they do it at each individual country? I really had no idea that happened! Hahah.

Seriously, it smelled AMAZING!

It was a perfect day, for sure!

I too adore the Three Caballeros. Was my favorite movie when I was a kid (Donald obsession began early). It's always a fun ride! And I too sing along loudly.

Donald is just the best ever! Seriously. He has the best voice, the best laugh (like the one he uses in Philharmagic? I die!). Your tangent is okay with me.

The Maelstrom. Epcot's best ride.

Hahahahahaha. There's a boat Jack. Oh Rose.

What would the Gran Fiesta Tour be without riders singing too loudly? Well, some may argue that it would be better... but whatever.

I'm glad! YES. He has the best laugh! He has the best EVERYTHING! Love him so much.

Oh, without a doubt.

If Jack hadn't been quickly freezing to death, he might have said, "Let's wait for another one... trolls don't like me."

Or, maybe he would have just taken his chances with the trolls.

I agree. He's the cutest! Yes, we were going to Akershus!

Y'all were off to a great start that day! Looks like you and your sister had fun in DHS! Although, I was scared for your shoe on RNRC! I would have freaked out the rest of the ride.

Love the box of candy - too cute!

And since World Showcase was the goal at EPCOT - that's awesome that y'all made it in time for opening!

And you're not alone - Donald is Ed's favorite character, too.

I'm interested to hear about lunch......

Definitely! It was a fun morning, despite the long lines! Omg, I was so nervous that I would have to walk around shoeless that entire day!

Me too! I want one hahha.

Yeah! That was a funny coincidence, we didn't even do it on purpose but it worked out very well!

YAY! He's awesome.

It was a fun meal!

I just wanted to give a special shout out to Mr. Walter E. Disney! Today is the celebration of his birth 111 years ago! What a special day in history that turned out to be!

Thanks!! He is just precious.

Hahah definitely! I mean, I could be wrong, but I think that's what it was! Either way the bathroom smelled amazing. Cool that you're getting some for Christmas! It smells SO GOOD.

TT being closed was so sad. I'm happy THAT ordeal is over with. Because, I agree, not hearing the cars fly by was so weird. You could tell something was missing from Future World. Epcot just wasn't the same...


WS at opening is so fun. Most people are still in Future World, so you can walk around or hit the attractions without waves upon waves of people.


A good smelling bathroom....hmm. That's a new one. I might have to check that out in the future. Which sounds weird, but I'm curious.

It actually really was. I'm so glad it's open again, as of yesterday!!!

Haha I totally agree! It messes with your mind a little bit, though.

Yes indeed!

I know, I'm so glad it's opened again! I can't wait to ride the new version.

Hahah I had no idea they did a little countdown. It was so cute.

I fully support your decision to smell the bathroom.

I can't ride the Gran Fiesta Tour without yelling FIESTA HOY in my best six-years-of-Spanish-classes accent when I see that sign. Then I just repeat Pan-CHI-to over and over again until the ride's over. It's not annoying at all.

Ah, NorVay. Magic bathrooms and the greatest attraction in the history of theme parks. It's a beautiful place.
