Disney Day 5 - January 10, 2012

We visited Epcot on Tuesday.  We were looking forward to this day because it was going to be a little more relaxing.  There ae some good rides at Epcot, but a lot of time there is spent visiting all of the different countries that are represented at Epcot.  There are a lot of cool things to do at each country.

Avery in front of the Nemo ride.  There was an aquarium at the end that she really enjoyed.

Coloring in Mexico.  They provided paper bears that the kids could decorate and take to each country.  There was someone at each country that would stamp the bear with a stamp representing that contry.  Avery ended up losing her bear, but she had fun coloring it!

Trying on a sombrero in Mexico.

One great thing about Epcot is all of the different food you can get.  Each country has at least one restaurant with food from that country.  Adam and I chose to eat lunch in Mexico and it was really good!  Most of the quick service meals that we had eaten for lunch had been pizza, hamburger, chicken fingers, that kind of food.  So it was nice to get something a little different.  And while we were eating, we met two different families from Alabama and chit chatted with them while we ate.

This was also the one day that Avery took a nap!  She fell asleep in her stroller and so I found a bench and sat with her while she slept.  When she woke up, we noticed that right next to us is where we cound meet Snow White and she was scheduled to be there in about 30 minutes.  She was the one princess that we had not yet met.  So we were about the 3rd people in line and we had just enough time to meet her before we had to head to our dinner reservations.  Snow White was very nice and Avery was so excitd to meet her!

We ate dinner in Japan at Teppan Edo.  It was a Japanese restaurant where they cook the food in front of you and it was delicious!

The last ride we rode at Epcot was Soarin'.  This is a big attraction at Epcot.  It is a hang gliding simulation that takes you through California.  It is like a Imax movie, but you sit in chairs that lift you up so that your feet are dangling and you move and feel the wind as you hang glide.  It is really cool!

We ended our day at Epcot by watching their laser light show and fireworks.  It was an amazing show, but Avery hated it!  I knew that she wasn't a big fan of fireworks so I was afraid she wouldn't like it.  Melissa held her the whole time and Avery buried her head and wimpered and cried through the whole show.  Even when it was over, she kept her hands over her ears until we left the park.  Poor baby!  I think it traumatized her a little bit because she did not sleep well that night. 

All in all, we had a really good day at Epcot!
