Congrats on getting married! You guys look like you got a lot done just in the short time frame of one morning at MK. I can't wait to read the rest of your trip report.

We love sitting in that area at Captain Cook's. It's a nice start to a morning, even if we only 'borrow' the Poly, since we have stayed there - yet.

I'm picturing that walking across the Adventureland bridge and hearing the drums and the music must have been quite exciting that morning!
I miss those ducks!

Isn't that area so nice?! I think everywhere on the Poly is nice.

Yes, walking across the Adventureland bridge and hearing the drums/smelling the green peppers is always exciting!

Thank you! It took awhile for my hair to get this long, so I'm happy!

Day 2 Continued..

We left off hopping on the Epcot monorail at the TTC .









After I made it through bag check and we went through the turnstiles, I made DH take a picture.



Our plan was to drink, snack, and explore the different countries in WS. We didn’t have a particular direction we wanted to go, so we just decided to go to the right. We passed Club Cool on the way.



They had Phineus and Ferb topiaries! I had to take a picture of them for Little Guy.



And finally..we were in WS!



We decided to skip Canada because we would be back there to eat at Le Cellier later in the trip. Next up was the UK! I was dying to try some fish and chips, so I guess this place was perfect to get food from..haha!



There was a little area to the right of the place that was perfect to sit and enjoy our food. Here’s where our table was compared to where we got our food.



Oh my gosh, this was the best fish! And we found out that we love malt vinegar on it!



While we were eating, we had another little visitor. This time, he was an “old friend” from our 2010 trip. For those of you who read that TR, you remember that Little Guy called them “Daddy Long Legs”.



Seeing him made me a little teary-eyed. We laughed and talked about how much fun we had on that trip. We also talked about how much fun we were having on this trip already. We were doing the World much different than we usually do. We are usually go, go, go and eating at our favorite places, etcetera. This time, we were relaxing, going with the flow, and even eating at new places.

There weren’t very many tables in the area we were sitting, so as we were picking up our food, I waved down a family who was looking for a table. We threw away our trash and wandered into France.





I was so excited to get to France because that’s where I was going to have my favorite—Grey Goose Slushie! But first, we explored this awesome wine gift shop.





One thing DH and I love to do is try different drinks, whether it’s beer or wine. There were so many kinds of wine I wanted to take home and try! I kept them in mind in case I wanted to come back and buy a bottle of something. We then wandered into this little bakery. We checked out all the choices they had to offer and choose to split a strawberry tart. With that in hand, we headed out to get my drink and find a bench.





And then I got teary-eyed again. The last time I had a Grey Goose Slushie was with Kristen (xoktenox) and Chris. We talked about how much fun we had with them that night at Epcot. After we finished our snack and drink, we wandered to the next country. As we walked through the rest of France, I got excited when I saw Belle and the Beast meeting with people. If there wasn’t such a long line, I probably would’ve went over there.

As we went through Morocco and Japan, I for some reason didn’t take any pictures so forgive me! As we left Japan, we said “See you later!” because we were eating dinner that night at Tokyo Dining-a first time for us! Up next: the US!



I really wanted to do the American Adventure since we had never taken the time to see it. Before we went inside, we stopped and listened to the drummers.



They played a couple of songs including Yankee Doodle, and then they had us recite the Pledge of Allegiance with them. It was getting close to the next time for the American Adventure, so we headed inside. We explored the little museum area first.



I had to take a picture of Mark Twain because I love him. DH and I actually took a trip and explored Mark Twain’s real home and town.



More people were coming in, so we decided to stand near the entrance. I completely forgot about reading about the Voices of Liberty and got excited when they came out.





They were amazing!! I can’t remember how many songs they sang, but I could’ve sat and listened to them for awhile longer! Unfortunately, it was time to go in. One thing I hate about these kinds of shows such as the American Idol Experience, Fantasmic, etc. is being herded. I’m short, so I tend to get run over a lot! I just held onto DH’s hand and tried to stay with the flow. Thankfully, we made it to our seats without being pushed and shoved too much. I didn’t take pictures during the show, but I did take a picture inside the theater.



*Continued in next post*

*Continued from previous*

We really enjoyed the show and will be coming back! We headed to Italy next. It was starting to rain so we quickly explored Italy before going to Germany. We really wanted a bratwurst and some Oktoberfest beer, so we got both of those and luckily made it inside by Biergarten before it started pouring! All the tables were taken, so we found a little spot along one of the walls and enjoyed our drink and snack. We were right by the check-in desk for Biergarten, so the CM’s were hanging around trying to entertain the kids waiting for their tables. They were in a big circle with the kids kicking around a ball. That kept us entertained for awhile until the rain let up.

We decided to make a run for it and head to China. We looked through the gift shop there before heading to Norway.





Because of the rain, Maelstrom actually had a line! The wait was 20 minutes, so we decided to skip it and hit the gift shop instead. I saw a sweater I liked, but when I saw the price tag, I quickly hung it back up. I can’t remember how much it was exactly, but I think it was around the $200 range. For a sweater! I had to say hello to this guy:



After Norway, we checked out Mexico.



I was still full from our other snacks, so we didn’t get anything here either. I know..we really slacked on this drinks/eating around the World. Some day though, we are going to make it into every country!!

Even though Test Track was closed, DH still wanted to go check out the area. It was still lightly raining, so we were hoping it wouldn’t start pouring again as we were walking there.





DH was really sad TT was closed. I hated telling him the bad news before the trip. It’s his favorite attraction at Epcot. We decided to head to Club Cool next.



We’ve done this before, but we had fun trying the different drinks again.



We were having fun watching people try the Beverly! DH would always talk to people coming up to where we were and try to convince them to try it. It was pretty entertaining.

We still had awhile before our dinner ADR and wanted to ride Living with the Land. I know a lot of people probably think this attraction is boring, but we really like it. Of course, it was a walk on.














Of course, Soarin’ was out of the question with the usual crazy long line! We decided to start heading back to Japan for dinner. We still had a little time, so we stopped in Innovations on the way. They had this pig game that taught kids about saving money. We played it and thought it was very cute!





By the time we were done playing, we needed to get to our ADR for 7:30. I was so excited to eat at Tokyo Dining because I am a sushi fanatic. I could eat sushi every day! I stopped to take a few quick pictures before we went inside.







We walked in and were amazed. It looks so neat in there. The bar where they make the sushi changes colors. The rest of the restaurant is in this big open room with lots of windows looking out. It was fun. I had a salad with ginger dressing and the sushi combo. I also ordered the Spicy Philly Roll even though it wasn’t included in our DDP. DH had the pork belly appetizer and sirloin. He also tried a few of my sushi rolls. For dessert, we both had ice cream. I had chocolate and DH had vanilla. Instead of getting a water or beer, we decided to both try the iced green tea. We really enjoyed the entire meal. Everything was good!

By the time we were done eating, it was 8:45. We wanted to hurry and beat Illuminations starting at 9, so we did the quick “mall walk” towards the front of the park. We did good! I snapped this picture as we headed to the monorail:



We had to wait a few minutes for the next monorail. As ours was pulling into the station, Illuminations started! Good timing! Since our room was so close to the TTC, we just walked back to our room from there. We sat on our balcony, enjoyed the view, and waited for Wishes to start at 10. I didn’t bring my camera out, so all these were taken on my phone:









After the finale, we clapped and decided we could get used to watching Wishes every night if we lived there. If only we could!

Up next: DHS day

It's nice that you were taking your time, going with the flow, and trying new things.

I very much enjoy hearing Voices of Liberty.

I recently (like a year ago maybe) found out that I like malt vinegar too on my fish and chips!

We are way overdue for a grey goose slush. The last time I had one was in 2008 Disappointing.

Absolutely love the view of Wishes from your room! So lucky!

It was definitely nice to try new things and take our time. It was very relaxing.

The Voices of Liberty was amazing!

That's too funny! Well if we are ever at WDW at the same time, let's meet for fish and chips!

Are you having a Grey Goose Slushie this trip?!

We are dying to do the F&W Festival so bad!

We should do Tokyo Dining together sometime. I agree, I need to be in WDW with you again!!

You crack me up. Love you too!

Sounds like you had such a great day. Epcot is not my favorite but there are so many things there we haven't tried. Maybe if we tried some new things my opinion would change. My DH on the other hand loves Epcot.

Wishes from your balcony would be a PERFECT ending to any day!

I've always wanted to try the fish and chips from the UK pavilion. They look so yummy! I bet watching Wishes from your balcony was amazing!

Hi Tink!!! omg!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

It's been forever! So good to see you back on here and read your amazing TR's!! Especially this one, being your Disneymoon and all

I love the pic of you and DH at the CF! How cute!! And I love your room location.. you got awesome pics of Wishes with your phone!! I also love the pics of the duckies that came to your room every day.. they're so cute!

We'll have to try eating at Japan one time, when we go back eventually. It sounds so good and it was nice to hear you review it! We always say we will but we never do! We'll have to wait a while before we go back to Disney though b/c we're expecting and due in February!!

Can't wait for more!
