Disney Vacay Day 2 at Epcot

For our second day of vacation we were off to Epcot. Since I grew up going to Disneyland, Magic Kingdom was much of the same to me, but Epcot was a completely new experience. The international showcase opened later than the actual park so the first half of the day was spent in Future World riding (or watching!) Living with the Land, Test Trek, Mission: SPACE, Journey Into Imagination With Figment, The Circle of Life, & Soarin'.

Then it was off to the World Showcase to travel the world! We met Pooh and Tigger in the UK,

and Princess Aurora in France.

I stopped for a quick photo in Morocco,

and picked up some limon gelato in Italy.

In Norway we were busy and rode the Maelstrom, met up with a troll,

and rendezvous-ed with a Norwegian Santa Claus.

Finally, in Mexico, we ran into Donald Duck.

By then it was time to head out, except on the way back to the hotel, we made a stop at the Magic Kingdom so we could watch the electrical light parade.

So that was our day at Epcot. Tomorrow though, you may be surprised with a slightly un-Disney Day.

And since we spent the day "traveling" at Epcot, if you could travel anywhere where we you go? (My choice again would be a tie, between Australia or Greece.)


  1. Japan, France, and Italy. Loving these posts. Helping me plan our Disneyworld trip which we haven't scheduled. It's one of those places we both want to go to.

  2. I liked the International area of Epcot. It was really cool and interesting, and I liked eating some of the different foods from different regions!

    If i could go anywhere, I'd either go to Paris... or Machu Picchu!

  3. I think Epcot was my dad's favorite part of Disney World when we visited in the early 2000's. Mine was MGM which I think has a different name now? If I could go anywhere in the world it would be LONDON!

  4. I want to go to somewhere with ancient ruins! Rome, Greece or Egypt.
