Back to your regularly scheduled concert. It seems after performing in full suits (and sweating to death) in October 2010,



Boyz II Men had learned to dress more appropriately for an outdoor concert in Florida.


Hooray! The music, as always, was awesome.





They did a really nice mix of their biggest hits and some awesome covers.











The concert was so good, that after a quick bathroom break, we headed back in for the second show. And we ended up with seats closer to the middle of the stage this time.









The show was even better the second time around. They even did one of our favorites, their cover of “Amazed” that we’d heard them do for the first time in 2010.













We thought about staying for the third show, but the kiosks were calling. Plus, we knew we’d be able to hear the music from outside the theater. Stay tuned for more F&W fun next time!

I'm not a beer fan, but that meal at Via Napoli looked amazing!

That guy at Boyz II Men is hilarious. Franklin did a great job of catching some really good expressions on the couple.

I bet that show was fabulous. I would love to see them on a future trip, whenever I finally make it to food and wine =)

Haha, I love the story of the Boys ll Men superfan. Hilarious! His facial expressions are just too much. I love me some Boys ll Men, but I doubt I've ever said "This is my jam" about any of their songs.... Haha.

Great updates! We had Sugar Ray for our Eat to the Beat concert. Good shows for a smaller outdoor concert venue.
Great photos! Not a beer fan here, but it would be fun to get to try a bunch of different drinks.

I've heard that the breakfast buffet at Tusker House is similar to Boma. Have you ever eaten at Tusker House? I love the ham and I would try to make it over to Boma just so I could have it again.


The concert looked like a lot of fun. What a great day you must have had.

The beer pairing lunch WAS fabulous. So much fun. Good food, good beer and we learned lots! The Super Fan had me laughing out loud all concert long. It was the greatest little sideshow.

I gave Franklin a huge kiss when he showed me that he had captured Super Fan and his girlfriend so well. He's so good at this. Boyz II Men are great! We'll get to see them for a third time at Eat to the Beat in October (2010, 2012, 2013) and I actually just saw them on The Package tour with 98 degrees and New Kids on the Block. That show was lots of fun too!

Sugar Ray was great! Who knew they had enough hits for a 30-minute set?!?! There are lots of different types of tasting at F&W. There are wine tastings, beer tastings, tequila tastings, scotch tastings and there's a rumor that the Hibachi Experience meals at Teppan Edo will have saki pairings with each course.

Tusker House is near the top of my to-do list, I really want to try it! I love F&W simply because days on those trips are unlike anything on any of our other Disney trips. It's always a more-relaxed pace. And it's funny to admit how much I like those days where we don't ride anything.

I am still shocked to this day that the GF didn't break up with Super Fan on the spot. He was so over the top and out of control!

People watching is the BEST at Disney!!! Even better than the airport!

That guy was funny! Something tells me alcohol was involved? Or was he sober lol!

Ahh, food and wine festival. I want to go so bad again this year.

Not fair that you got to the try the grapefruit beer. I went towards the end of the festival and that beer was all gone.

We last left off taking in two awesome Boyz II Men concerts, we decided to skip the third show and grab some Food and Wine Festival snacks before Franklin set up for Illuminations. We hung a right out of the amphitheater and made our way around the World Showcase. You can’t walk through France without getting some sort of alcoholic slushie.



We chose the Grand Marnier version this time. Not a F&W drink, but a classic nonetheless.



We moved onto Ireland next.



Franklin had the Fisherman’s pie. He devoured it so quickly, he barely had time to snap a photo. Um, I think he liked it.



We wanted to get to the Chase Disney Visa Illuminations viewing area so Franklin could set up. But we couldn’t walk past the Canada kiosk and NOT get something. I grabbed the filet and the cheddar cheese soup, it was almost like eating at Le Cellier... almost. Franklin got just what this day needed, more beer.



We settled into the viewing area, directly across the lake from the American pavillion.



I happily enjoyed my snacks and got to know the lovely Disney fans who had pulled up a seat next to us. But you didn’t come for the small talk, you guys are here for the fireworks pictures. So away we go!



































And this is easily my favorite Illuminations picture Franklin has ever taken.



That ends another perfect Epcot evening. We headed for the front of the park.



We all grabbed the bus back to AKV. Franklin and I had a very early breakfast at a very special location in the morning!

He makes the Illuminations look better than they do in person. Those pictures are beautiful.
