Wednesday morning we headed to Disney’s Epcot. I should state that we like our beauty sleep, and we aren’t the earliest risers. We met Lolli and Aunt Sara around 10 or 10:30AM each day.
There was little traffic going into the park and parking was easy. We waited in a short line to get bags checked and made it quickly through the entrance.
Disney World offers a Memory Maker Photo Pass. It costs $169. You can have your photo taken by many photographers around each park and have them scan your photo pass card. The photos are then transferred to the Disney World app you can download onto your phone. Any photos that are taken on rides can also be scanned and added to the photos on your phone. I was told by several people that this is worth the money, and I have to agree, it’s definitely worth it.
Epcot has some neat rides. The rides we enjoyed most were Soarin’ Around the World, Frozen Ever After and Gran Fiesta Tour Starring the Three Caballeros. I was personally amazed by Soarin’ Around the World.
I liked the character set up best at Epcot out of all the Disney parks. There is a station for a specific character. That character is there all day. There are lines, but the lines were definitely shorter at Epcot than the lines at Magic Kingdom.
Our girls just love Minnie Mouse, so we felt the short wait was worth it to see her. She did not disappoint!
Our kids also enjoyed meeting Joy and Goofy.
As a child, I loved exploring all the different countries at Epcot. Our kids really enjoyed that as well.
Each of our kids were given gift cards and cash from grandparents, aunts and uncles. Each kid had $60 to spend at Disney World.
They really got into shopping at some of the different countries. They bought all sorts of neat souvenirs such as hats, bags, purses, fans, mirrors, personalized mini umbrellas and hacky sacks.
Lolli treated us to dinner at San Angel Inn Restaurante in Epcot’s Mexico. It was beautiful and delicious.
After dinner, while shopping in Mexico, one of our kids started vomiting. We decided to go ahead and wrap up the night at that point.
We think it was a 12 hour bug, and we were thankful it hit at the time of day it did, and extra, extra thankful it didn’t spread to any of the rest of us during our time at Disney World!
