Item #2 on the agenda for the weekend (after Harry Potter world) was Disney of course! We only had Saturday and Tuesday to do the Disney Parks, so we hit Epcot and Magic Kingdom on Saturday, and Animal Kingdom on Tuesday. (Hollywood Studios will have to wait til next time, we didn't make it there...oh well.)
We started off bright and early at Epcot. We went straight to Soarin over California, which I thought was funny that they had that ride in Epcot in Florida. But I do love that ride, so it was great. And we had a funny middle-aged lady right next to us who you could tell it was her first time on the ride and she was hooting and hollering almost as good as the Chinese grandma we had once on our row in CA.
We went to the World Showcase around lunchtime and had a sampling of deliciousness from several of the different countries. We had fish n chips in Britain. (Although a seagull snatched half of Caron's fish right out of her hand!)
I loved the floating lanterns near Rapunzel's Tower.
On Tuesday we hit Animal Kingdom, and saw Dug and Russell! I was a dork and made Caron wait in line with me to get a picture with them. I just have a special place in my heart for Russell ever since Zach was born. :)
We also saw the pretty awesome Lion King show.
I just loved Disney World! And then Tuesday evening, Caron's work stuff started and I drove up to Jacksonville to meet up with Matt. It really was such a great vacation and a REALLY wonderful break!!!
