Disney World- Day 2- Epcot

On day 2, we got another late start since we were out late the night before. It still was chilly-in the 30s and 40s, so Mom and Ansley stayed in the room. The three of us jumped on the monorail and headed to Epcot!

We got to see Daisy right of the bat, and we had heard that she is hard to find!

We walked around and we knew that the rides here were going to be packed. You have to plan rides...The thing is that the more popular rides give out so many fast passes, you may get a fast pass for 4 hours later, and you can't hold another pass until your time is up on that one! So we chose to get a fast pass for Soarin (fast pass was for late afternoon!) and then we stood in line to ride Test Track. It was neat! After that we went to The Seas with Nemo and friends and Turtle Talk with Crush. (My picts are a little out of order!) We then headed to the World Showcase. Grant and I really enjoyed this. Addison was OK when we were seeing the characters, but there aren't really rides there. Each country has a few buildings, and the people that work in each village are from that country. You can shop, eat, and sight see just like you are visiting other countries! It was cool! We had really good Mexican food for lunch!

In France, Addison had her picture taken in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Here is a picture from the Nemo pavilion!

In each country, there were storytellers. Here we were in Germany and Addison was listening to a story about a Nutcracker. When they opened their eyes there was a life sized nutcracker there. Grant was thirsty in Germany! :)

While Addison was listening to the story, Grant continued to walk around a little. He text me and said "you've got to see this!" We finished the story and met up with Grant. There was an incredible chocolate shop! Grant got a S'mores apple, Addison a chocolate strawberry, and I got fudge!

After walking around the World Showcase, we headed back to Future World. We went to the Land Pavilion and watched the Circle of Life. We then got to ride Soarin which was pretty cool. Addison really liked it! We were cutting it close to our dinner reservations so I took off to the hotel to get mom and Ansley. Grant and Addison did a few more things. Mom and I were running late, so Grant and Addison went on to Akershus where we were having dinner. They wouldn't seat them until the entire party arrived. We were REALLY LATE! We missed our reservation, but they let us wait until the next seating. I am so glad we were able to eat there! The food was good, and it was laid back. The princesses did a parade around the restaurant with the children. It was cute!
Belle was the main princess here that you got your picture made with and they give you a copy!
Addison's Mickey pasta!
The princesses! Funny story- one of the princesses said, "It is so nice to meet you." And Addison replied, "you've already met me- remember last night at the castle!" Without missing a beat the princess responded, "Oh yes, but of course you are wearing something different and I didn't recognize you!" Nice save!

My poor Addison was exhausted! She laid out on the Monorail!

Ansley held up really well!
