Land of the big white ball
First thing, we had to remember what Epcot stood for: Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Future and science themes, plus international learning experiences.
A little blurry, but this bunny was in a garden, about 2 feet behind where Brian was sitting. There were lots of ducks to enjoy too, roaming through the pretty gardens.
The first attraction we visited was a Space adventure – a rather exciting flight simulator for a virtual flight to Mars! We all enjoyed it.
That is an orange card… yes, the kids did vote for the ‘extreme’ experience vs the ‘mild’ version. I enjoyed it, but have to admit that I was a little dizzy when I walked out! Honor also got tagged with a badge they use to track line times… she was chosen several times during the day. I’m not sure that these tags did anything to actually help with the line times… but I guess I should be happy that they’re trying.
We also rode a Test Track ride that may have been more impressive without our desert driving experience… rough roads, steep hills, random curves, heat lamps, trucks swerving into your lane… meh… show me something I don’t do every day. I suppose it was interesting to learn about and see the displays on how cars are tested, but the ride was less than exciting.
Next, we went to Canada… at least the Canadian section of Epcot… and watched a movie on a 360-degree screen.. and saw more ducks hanging out around the lovely pond and flowers.
We also strolled through a few more ‘countries’… are we back in the Middle East? … It was hot enough, but perhaps there’s too much green to be authentic?!
We also stopped by Japan.
Dinner was awesome!
And afterwards… we found MORE ducks!
our family is duck-deprived (especially Honor).
There were rides and shows, but mostly we enjoyed walking around and enjoying the sites.
Another sunset brings to a close another tiring but fun day!
