Doing Disney – Day 5

Posted September 11th, 2008 under Life, Travel by MicheleP.

Day 5 of Disney and we are starting to show signs of fatigue – when I uploaded my pictures, I realize I only took 10 pictures today – that HAS to be a Disney record.

We spent today at Epcot and to our delight, it seemed that most everyone else did NOT come today. September is supposed to be “off season” but we’ve found all the other parks quite full each day. If this is the slow season…I cannot imagine coming at Christmas or Spring Break.

The girls were enamored with the “big white ball” and even more thrilled when we told them we got to go inside it and ride to space! And since there was no line at all, we rode this one several times.

However, Scott called it quits when Clara chose Portuguese on the language screen and he had to listen to the entire narration in (very loud) Portugese.

We also got to ride the Nemo ride several times – the girls thought it was so fun to sit inside a clam :)

For lunch, we headed over to the World Showcase and had a wonderful meal at Marrakesh in Morocco. We sat right next to the musicians (which could be a blessing or a curse, depending on if you enjoy that style of music) and the girls were invited to dance with the belly dancer. Thankfully, they still prefer the likes of the princesses to belly dancers :)

After naps back at the hotel, we boarded a boat and went to Downtown Disney for some dinner and shopping. Just look at the enthusiasm on the girls’ faces!

After dinner, we had a “small world experience”…No, we did NOT ride small world again…but ran into a friend for the second time in a day. I knew Renee was going to be at WDW this week and we had planned to meet up after lunch one day but that didn’t work out. We ended up running into her at Epcot and then again at Downtown Disney. How crazy is that?!
