    That was one jam packed day! Where did you get the stoplight margarita and the Tuscan sandwich? We usually end up at the Backlot Express, looks like you guys did better!

    it is a fun wait but doubt we will wait that long again.
    We did do a lot but there is still plenty more from that night to come.

    Thank you.

    The stand by studio catering by the backlot tour. has a great little area for sitting.

    We had a photopass picture taken.
    [​IMG]

    We decided to leave and OH MY!!!!
    [​IMG]

    It was not easy. Once we got to the stores then we sailed through but getting there was terrible.

    Then we went back to resort and slept.

    Up next,

    They were horrible but going through the stores really helps.

    :thumbsup2

    Day 5
    This morning brought on a day of something new to us but we will get to that soon. We had breakfast in the room of a Clif bar and coffee and Vinny had donuts.
    Soon we were on our way to our destination. Not the most flattering pic. LOL
    [​IMG]

    EMH at Epcot. We actually got there at 8:30.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Walking to our destination.
    [​IMG]

    Hello destination.
    [​IMG]

    The line.
    [​IMG]

    I believe we waited only 15 to 20 minutes which is not bad. We had third row.

    Then we walked out.
    [​IMG]

    We did grab a fastpass first.

    Going to stop as next update is a first for us and lots of pics.

    Up next,

    I think we are the only adults here...

    Great Carousel of Progress pictures! I still enjoy that attraction after seeing it many, many times, and Brooklynn and Bella seem to be okay with it, too. Jill only needs to see it about once every 3-4 years to be happy.

    After we Soared through the clouds we decided to do something we had never done before and we had the photopass already so let's fill it up.

    [​IMG]

    Not too bad so we went in. It was about 15 minutes and we were the only ones without kids. LOL. Many pics coming with different borders.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then we met Mickey's dog.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then came Mickey's girl.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The ladies love Vinny, if they only knew. LOL
    [​IMG]

    Next was an angry bird who was not so angry this day.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then a very tall one.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And that concluded our time with Mickey and his friends. They were very good on the interaction here. Glad we did it and got there early.

    Up next,

    We soar through the clouds and learn about the land

    Great update! :thumbsup2 I loved all the photo pass pictures with the Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy. Glad you got there with barely any wait.

    I don't know why I like the hot air balloon decorations up high where Soarin and The Land is, but I do. I guess they're just so Disney to me.

    Looking forward to reading more of your TR. :surfweb:

    Thank you.
    We went a little after opening and it was a great time.
    I love those balloons and cannot figure out why I need a pic every time I go. :rotfl:

    After seeing our friends we headed back to Soarin’ through the clouds again.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This time we had FP’s but still a 5 minute wait and we asked for first row. I love this ride, Vinny not so much.
    [​IMG]

    Now it is time for us to do something we had not done before. We signed up for the first “Behind The Seeds Tour” of the day. Warning there will be many photos.

    Meet Charley. Our guide for the tour. He was great.
    [​IMG]

    Each couple got a tube of ladybugs to be released later on.
    [​IMG]

    I honestly will not be writing a description of all things as I cannot remember.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then we went inside the building and saw it all.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then we were instructed to release the ladybugs.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The Charley gave us a sample of the cucumbers. Vinny was convinced it tasted like watermelon?
    [​IMG]

    Then Charley spoke to Tim. LOL. Tim explained a few things to us. I would love his job just to be able to work all day in there.
    [​IMG]

    Next room and new things.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cucumbers.
    [​IMG]

    Tomato.
    [​IMG]

    Then I saw a hidden Mickey across the way.
    [​IMG]

    That is one big sweet potato.
    [​IMG]

    Eggplant time.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Con't in next post...

    Moving along.
    [​IMG]

    Love the Mickey pumpkins.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Boat passing us.
    [​IMG]

    Then we entered the building with the fish. First up we saw shrimp.
    [​IMG]

    Then we saw eels.
    [​IMG]

    A hidden Mickey.
    [​IMG]

    Then we saw the gators.
    [​IMG]

    I thought it was cute.
    [​IMG]

    Fish.
    [​IMG]

    Then we entered the tropical area.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Looking up at the ceiling.
    [​IMG]

    A lone alligator.
    [​IMG]

    Then we were allowed to hold a pumpkin mickey and take a pic.
    [​IMG]

    Would anyone want corn? Think you might have to wait awhile for it. LOL
    [​IMG]

    This plant was great. You see the big branches I guess open and then you touch them and they close up. The 2 in the middle are closed. I wanted one to play with all day. LOL
    [​IMG]

    After this we walked out and the tour was over. I really loved the tour it was informative and just fun seeing how they do it all. Charley was a great guide. If you have a 90 minutes I highly recommend doing it.

    The cost for the tour was $30.60 with the discount though I cannot remember what gave us the discount.

    Then across from the desk they sell mini Mickey gardens. I bought 2 of them. 1 is vanilla and the other is dragon fruit.
    [​IMG]

    I planted both and the vanilla is growing like crazy, the dragon fruit not so much.

    Up next,

    Can you guess?

    I really enjoyed this update! (Not that I didn't enjoy the other updates :p) We've done the Behind the Seeds tour two or three times and we love it. I've always wondered in those tiny little plants would grow after you buy then and bring them home. It sounds like the vanilla is the one to buy.
