    My photo walk at Epcot - PART 2! / Lunch!

    After we finished up in Canada, we headed through France and Morocco.

    In Morocco, we went into The Gallery of Arts and History, which is the little Moroccan museum near the front of the pavilion. Usually, we just go right by that kind of stuff, but we checked it out for a few. Kathy told us how the mosaics on the walls are never perfect because only their God can create something that is perfect. So if you look at all of the mosaics, you can see little flaws, as this is done on purpose.

    Disney and all of their details.

    GAHHHHHH.

    We looked around Morocco only for a few more minutes and I saw Henry.

    And I kind of died.

    I tried not to run up to him and give him a big hug. I was really itchin to, but that would have been just weird right then, so I secretly waved to him and told him I would see him later.

    I know you guys are thinking “Who the crap is Henry?” and “What is wrong with this girl?”

    Answers to those questions: 1) Go look at my intro or go read my first TR (but y’all should’ve done that by now) and 2) I don’t know what’s wrong with moi.

    SOOOOO, next we took the long journey to Japan—which was VERY tiring—and we checked out the little pond with all of the koi fish. At least that is what I think is in there.

    We saw a segway tour going on around here. Kathy said she had done it before and it was great, except she couldn’t move after it for like two days.

    Also, I found the really easy Hidden Mickey in the pond.

    It’s not that hard at all.

    Unless you are blind.

    Like Mum.

    Moving on…

    We then headed to take pictures of the Itsukushima Shrine (aka the big red thing at the front of the pavilion in the water. And no I didn’t know the name of it off the top of my head. Google did.)

    [​IMG]

    Love how this one came out.
    [​IMG]

    Next we moved on to Italy.

    A dude who is almost naked and two fish that look like replicas from the statues on top of the Fish (aka the Dolphin). Except they look really evil and are about to bite someone’s head off. (so they are like Mum).
    [​IMG]

    Past Germany…
    [​IMG]

    And into China!

    We checked out a nice little waterfall.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We went past NorVAY and Mexico, and then we wrapped up our photo walk!

    From my updates, it may have looked like it was very short, but it was after 12 at this point.

    We talked to Kathy for a few more minutes and said goodbye.

    The walk was AWESOME and she showed me a lot of different angles and places to take some pictures at, and I think Epcot was the perfect place to do so.

    I had a lot of fun and it was great talking to someone who actually GETS Disney, instead of “the other people” who are there for rides. Yuck.

    Now since I have some ideas and places around Epcot to take photos at, they’ll come out even better with the DSLR THAT I AM GETTING VERY SOOOOOOOOON. ONLY A LITTLE EXCITED.

    After we said goodbye, we headed to the stores at the entrance of World Showcase that have names, but they totally escape me right now. One sf the Duffy store and then another one, which was converted into a Christmas store.

    I am pretty sure we went into the Duffy Lovers store and that is where I got another vintage Epcot CENTER shirt, cause I needed another one.

    I totally bypassed all of the Duffy merchandise because EWWWWWWWWWW. And plus Duffy is a mean bear and we are not friends.

    We were all very hungry so we tried to decided on where to go for lunch, so we checked out the ever so wonderful My (Crappy) Disney Experience app.

    We decided to go to China and get some yummy foooood.

    Epcot is pretty much dead today.

    We hit some really awful crowds on our way to China aka Disney Ducks begging for food and drunk people.

    I am being sarcastic about the first part, but the second part is 99.9% accurate.

    Some Christmasy bush thingy and a dude half-sitting on a railing. And strollers. Perfection.
    [​IMG]

    We arrived!
    [​IMG]

    We got in the imaginary line and ordered.

    We got our food and found a table in this area that has awesome lights.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All of us got the shrimp fried rice and it came with an egg roll. It was YUMMMMAY.
    [​IMG]

    I also got a strawberry smoothie and it was delicious.

    Mum must’ve made a mess around her mouth or something. (YOU’RE WELCOME KIND MOTHER.)
    [​IMG]

    I used the bathroom before we left to go explore the world some more.

    The bathrooms in China are very nice. #random #bathroomtweet

    And they play good music in them. #bathroomtweet


    Important information.

    You are very welcome.

    Anywayyyys, we left China and moved on to Germany.
    [​IMG]

    In Germany, they had a ton of blown glass ornaments that were beautiful.

    Want. Need.

    Some non-blown glass Disney ornaments.

    …and I guess I took a picture of another Christmasy bush thingy before moving on to Heaven?

    You have got to be kidding me. We are not neighbors but we are in Gardner every. single. week. and we go to Fitchburg and Leominster almost as much. That is just weird.

    Do you know about the DISmeet in June in Leominster?​

    Yup! Kids can go to all of the events! It's a lot of fun! Do you listen to the DISunplugged?

    And that is so great that he got his wish last year! GKTW is such a great organization.

    Thank you!
    The ornaments were so cool. I wanted to buy most of them.
    Disney + Christmas = DEAD.​

    A trip to Heaven, becoming a princess, and touring two countries

    I basically ran to our next destination.

    HEAVEN WAS SO CLOSE.

    BUT SO FAR AWAY AT THE SAME TIME.

    BUT NOT REALLY.

    IT WAS LIKE TWO FEET AWAY.

    I THINK I SHOULD THE REST OF THIS CHAPTER IN ALL CAPS.

    THAT WOULD BE LOVELY RIGHT?!?!?!

    PROBABLY NOT.

    Back to Heaven…

    We arrived here.
    [​IMG]

    I can just hear the angles singing and playing their harp. So beautiful. Just like all of the chocolate and caramel inside. And when you combine those two things, it’s even more beautiful.

    AND IT IS A PARTAY IN YO TUMMAY. SO YUMMAY.

    No, I do not watch Yo Gabba Gabba.

    I just watch Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins because THEY ARE THE BEST SHOWS EVER. If you disagree with that, you are on crack. Or you don’t want to admit that you watch those shows. I mean COME ON. Who wouldn’t want to watch a show about a girl from a village becoming a princess and lambs that need cuddles 24/7. Seriously, I don’t think it is normal to need cuddles or give cuddles twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Yeah, it’s normal to like to cuddle SOMETIMES, but not all the time. I think someone needs to send Lambie to therapy, or something.

    MEGAN, GET TO THE CHOCOLATE AND CARAMEL ALREADY. THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO START GETTING ANGRY BECAUSE THERE IS NO FOOD PORN.

    Here you go, OKKKKKK?!
    [​IMG]

    CHRISTMASSSSSS.
    [​IMG]

    NOMS.
    [​IMG]

    We got our goodies and then went outside and found a bench to sit on.

    My chocolate caramel cookie. If you remember, I got this in August. I had to get it again BECAUSE IT IS SO CRAPPIN’ GOOD.
    [​IMG]

    It looks wayyyyyy too perfect in order to be real.

    Mum got the oatmeal apple caramel cookie. And she took a bite before I could even snap a picture of it. SHAME SHAME!
    [​IMG]

    Mimi just had some caramel popcorn, and I think Mum had some too.

    Can’t resist posting this picture. Mum is going to kill moi. IT IS JUST SO FUNNY AND LOOK AT MUM’S TONGUE STICKING OUT.
    [​IMG]

    After we went to heaven and back, we looked around Germany for a little bit. Of course that means looking at the guys and trying on hats and tiaras and such.

    [​IMG]

    Tried on a tiara in one shop. I AM A PRINCESSSSSS.
    [​IMG]

    Random Christmas decorations.
    [​IMG]

    Next we went into the Der Teddybar Toy Shop. I take it that means The Teddy Bear Toy Shop…
    [​IMG]

    Tried on a hat with a…I don’t even know what that is. All I know is that I look evil. And that the picture came out blurry because…of reasons. Not saying them though because Mum reads this.
    [​IMG]

    When I become an old grandmother, I am going to live in a house filled with cuckoo clocks. Don’t ask.
    [​IMG]

    A random Christmas tree in Germany.
    [​IMG]

    Next, we made our way to America.

    Foreshadowing…
    [​IMG]

    They had tons of Christmas displays up in America, including one with Precious Moments dolls. They were cute and all and most of them were Disney related, but seriously, I would not want my house filled with those. Cuckoo clocks, yes, but not dolls that stare at me and watch my every move. That is just weird.

    Mary and Bert ♥
    [​IMG]

    Cindy, Belle (my 3rd favorite princess), and Ariel.
    [​IMG]

    Me want.
    [​IMG]

    Blurry Disney Duck, LOOOOK OUT!

    Coming up: I'm reunited with an old friend.​

    LOVED both of your trip reports! Read through them both in 2 days!

    I am impressed with your writing and wit! Good job. I'd be glad if my 8 yr old daughter turned out like you! :-)
