I have very little tolerance for salt at the best of times. I was raised on a low sodium diet as my dad had to severely limit his salt intake.I agree about the cheese soup, or should I say salt soup. it was not great at all. no flavor other than salt. I love salt and it was too much for even me. Actually our whole meal was like that.
I can't believe you didn't know Santa was married!
I know you didn't grow up in the US at all, but didn't you guys have tv Christmas specials? Like the year without a Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, or Rudolph? Santa always has a wife in all the shows. And then the whole Santa Claus 2 movie is about Santa picking a wife. I am just shocked you didn't know.
I have heard the same about the pickle as well. My dis friend Karin is from Austria and she says that is not true at all. I have since heard others tell me that as well. I was telling MIL about it one day a few months ago and she got defensive with me as she had a "German" Aunt who always had a pickle. Now she wasn't from Germany, but she supposedly held all the traditions, but my guess is she fell for something commercialized as real.
I don't think anybody in Germany or with links to Germany has.lovely update, love all the pictures...
Sorry the soup was not up to par and I think it is a shame that Disney is putting the pickle ornament in the Germany pavilion, maybe it should be in the American one, or not at all. My DH lived in Germany and graduated from High School there, and he had never heard of it either, when he saw it in EPCOT.
Take your time. This is not going anywhere. Graham and I have a deal that I cannot go on a trip before I finished the trip report for the last one. Well, we are having a sneaky weekend in Dubai planned for the weekend starting March 8th. So I have to get this finished by then.Just posting to say I'm still reading along, just hopelessly behind. Every time I think I'm caught up. There is another update!
I have not explored Camp Minnie Mickey either. Just did FOTLK and left. I've never had a lot of time to explore Epcot in detail. Mostly the countries where I have ADRs!
I have enjoyed the food at The Wave every time we went, but the service is awful. Graham liked breakfast well enough, but did not rate dinner at all either time we went.Yay! I'm finally caught up again. We were going to try the wave, but now I'm not sure. I haven't heard many good reviews of it.
The fireworks from TOTWL looked great. We went up there on our recent trip, but not at fireworks time. We just figured we should spend some money there so they don't take it away as a DVC perk.
Sounds like a lovely day!
