Back into Epcot around 3:00 PM. I forgot the numbers, but thought it was cool to find a phone booth.



We are heading over to Mexico and Norway for some boat riding fun. I enjoy boats so much.

Mexico.



We stop on the way out as dds want to color a Perry the Platypus. We didn't do the Kim P/Agent P thing, but oldest likes Perry, so we stopped. Then, over to Norway.

Hey, Where's Perry?



Hey, where's Perry?



After the Norway boat ride, off to Ellen's Universe of Energy. I know it's a cheesy ride and filled with propaganda (see, there it is again), but it's still fun.



Over to Mission:Space. I remember riding Horizons on my one trip with my parents those many years ago, but I like the refurb and Lieutenant Dan. Oldest dd and I did the Orange side this year. The G-force is a lot more. She was proud of herself for moving up. Youngest dd and DW did the green side.



While Test Track was closed, GM did put out a few cars to try to appease folks. It didn't work for me, but dds enjoy it. The convertible camera is a sweet ride.





It was close to dinner time and I always enjoy a boat ride. So we thought we would stop here, even if only a few countries away.



It is 6:30 PM and a great day. Let's go eat dinner and get ready for the night shift.

Great update Norm, I'll have to look for that Cranberry bog in a few weeks, Did you go into the little Viking Museum in Norway, I never even knew it was there until I caught the door opening and someone walking out, It looks kinda like a tower as soon as you walk into the pavilion, next to the Bakery dining area

I may have missed that. Is that the one with the troll, coloring station, and perfume? Or, is there another area I missed?

This is as soon as you turn the corner on your left when entering the pavilion, before you even get to the bakery, like I said I never even knew it was there, wasn't a whole lot in there but it was still cool to discover something new

Dinner tonight at Chefs de France. This will be a new dining experience for us.

I start out with French import beer. It is good. I had two.



We have some bread. A warm baguette.



DW had the French Onion Soup. It was a little light, but I don't like a strong onion soup.



I had the Escargot.



I had the filet for dinner and DW had the macaroni and cheese. Both were real good, but apparently , I was too hungry and forgot to photograph them. Oops. I could try a better story like Bomb Voyage and Mr. Incredible had an epic battle in the restaurant that distracted me, but wasn't sure if you all would believe that.

I had the Profiteroles for dessert and DW.

Looks like you're having a good time.

I really like the live TR format you've got going, but not sure I could ever get myself to do it that way. A few pictures is about the best I think I'd ever be able to do.

After dinner, we decided to head over to Germany for the karamel corn at Karamel Kuche. This was highly recommended from the DisDads, but we had never tried it. So, we had to wait 15 minutes as they were making a batch fresh in front of us. We got a to go bag with waters and walked towards SpaceShip Earth.

It was as good as advertised. Delicious. The best I ever had.

So, stuffed from dinner, I crammed down some more food. We finished before we got to SpaceShip Earth, and then inside for the ride.

We did the pictures and emailed them; however, I only DW and oldest dd. If the other shows up, I'll add it.



After Spaceship Earth, it was time for Illuminations. A short walk up, and while very crowded, as it was 8:55 PM, we managed a place to stand over next to the Duffy Store. The two dds were able to lean on the handrail and see much of the ball, and of course the fireworks were awesome.

After that, the park closed and we were tired, but ready for EMH. We headed over for Turtle Time with Crush, as that was a main ride that we had missed earlier that day. It was about a 15 minute wait, I guess to start for EMH, so I sat up front and was able to enjoy the fish in the aquarium while we waited for the show. It was nice to rest too.



With the phone battery about dead, my battery dead, and it being dark, no more pictures for the rest of the night. Soarin had another 45 minute wait, so we did Living with the Land, Circle of Life, and back to Spaceship Earth one more time. Then, we went and picked up our merchandise and pictures from earlier in the day. I guess we could have managed a couple more rides, but we were exhausted at is was close to midnight. We rode the bus back as the monorail was closed. What a magical day.

It isn't too bad. I just take the pics with my cell phone and upload them to PB and write the story as I go. Also, the dds are sleeping and it is a good way for me to unwind before I go to sleep, or for me to spend time while they are still sleeping in. With that said, the creatures are stirring. It is a MNSSHP tonight. Will post more pictures.

We were able to get all the rides in Epcot, some multiple times. We skip the countries, except for a few. It is either one or the other. Crowds a little bigger than normal October, but not bad at all. I think we spoiled in October the first year with cooler weather and small crowds, and the holiday crowds have caught up.

A late night made for a late morning. We went to the Wave for lunch, and are just going to hang in the Community Hall, watch some TV, color, play video games, or whatever else the dds want to do to relax unit the MNSSHP.

It started out its some nice beer flights.

The appetizer was 2 crab cakes, the size of quarters and fish tacos. It didn't last long enough to photograph.

I had the Reuben sandwich. It was excellent with a tart dill pickle.

DW had the Cobb salad with steak. Where is the rest of it?

The Wave was OK. The dds did not eat very much and they didn't like it, so we probably wouldn't go back. I'd just assume of to the Contempo Cafe for some sushi. 2 more hours to MNSSHP.

Thursday and our last full day at WDW. We are headed out for our 2nd MNSSHP of this trip.



Oldest is ballerina and youngest is a cat. Both were dance costumes.

We got in 15 minutes early and photo with Aurora.



Got to see the Main Street Band. First time, and I like marching bands.

Then, front row to watch the castle stage show.





And, almost an hour a wait for Merida. That means it is time for more pin shopping. Darn all the luck.



DW met up with a mom from church who was there with her daughter, the same age as younger dd. Well, you know what happens when that happens. Commando plans on hold and random touring with 8 year olds in charge. First, they did teacups.

Then, we did Indy cars.



Oldest dd drove the whole way and has no sense of driving. 8 year old drives better. She will have to live in Orlando or New York and be dependent on public transportation.
