Day 4: Disney's Epcot, okay so when I was a little girl we had this movie where Barbie (hey you knew it was coming, when have I ever not mentioned Barbie) went to Epcot to celebrate her birthday.
And ever since I wanted to go to Epcot and see all the Countries just like she did. So my goal was to go all the places, and eat all the foods 😉 Hey don't judge!
Since the park didn't open until 11 today we had plenty of time to get ready.
Today I was Bounding as Moana, I wore a printed wrap skirt my Dad brought me back from the Philippines about 18 yrs ago. Still looks good right? The skirt I paired with a crop top from Styles for Less. Once again I went with my glasses from Voogueme, and left my hair untamed. I wore my black canvas water resistant/ slip resistant shoes. These were my work shoes from my days at Legoland. After three days of travel and walking my feet, calves, thighs and hips are really feeling it. Since I used to wear these for 8-10hrs a day 5 days a week walking a theme park I pretty much consider them old faithful. Oh yeah, bought them at Payless and they are the best work shoes I've ever owned.
Now that we were all ready it was time to head to the park, just as cool as I expected it to be. We fast passed our first ride so decided to go shopping while we waited for our return time. I didn't see anything I needed to have so no purchases for me 😢
First ride: Test Track by Chevrolet, remember when I said the Cars ride from Disneyland was the best ride ever? I was wrong, because going 600mph on a racetrack is definitely more fun. Also you get to check out and get up close and personal with these beautiful vehicles.
Again we fast passed our tickets, then went to burn time at the Food and Wine festival 😍
Our first stop was Canada where we got rained on, appropriate I know. Luckily I remembered my poncho so I didn't get soaked through. But after it stopped I had to tie it to my backpack until it dried and I could roll it up into my backpack again. After making a few very important calls, I went into the tea shop where I found some Lady Grey tea. I purchased it for my little sister, we always drink tea on Period Drama Saturday so I think this might be something she'll enjoy. In our way out we noticed Alice in the garden and got a picture!
Our next stop was France, I ordered a goat cheese tart.
Umm sooo good! A great way to start off my food tour. We had a seat and enjoyed our food. We finished up just in time for our second ride.
Ride 2: Soaring, they have this same ride at California Adventure. It's identical, is it fun? Oh yeah, I never get tired of this one, you get to hanggliding over the whole world! From the safety of Disney, what could be better?
Ride 3: I don't actually remember the name of this ride because I kept calling it the Chiquita Banana Boat Ride. It's basically a boat ride that teaches you where food comes from. It is cool that it takes you through their actual greenhouse and fish farm where the parks farm most of the food sold in their restaurants. The ride reminded me of Jurassic Park I when they're learning how dinosaurs are made, then you get to see them being made.
Though it was nice to get out of the best for a little bit, after learning how food was made we were ready to try some more. We made it back to France just in time to see Queen Elsa and Princess Ana.
Brazil was next there wasn't anything I wanted to eat there, please don't be disappointed in me.
In Morocco I tried spicy humus fries topped with diced cucumbers and tomatoes. They didn't really taste like fries, and we're a little denser than I expected. The topping was the best part, crisp and refreshing.
We then walked into Japan where I got super excited for Ramen. Then I realized it was the cold kind and changed my mind.
I them ordered the Sushi flower pot, I thought it would be real sushi but it was basically a glorified poke' bowl. It was good, and cute, I even got my niece to try a bite. We started to leave but my niece had lost her toy Mickey Mouse, so then we had to back track until we found it, which we did.
America! I didn't order any food, because I live here. My brother and sister got lobster rolls though.
Italy, I didn't order anything here either. We're part Italian and they didn't have anything on their menu that we can't make. The town was cute though and makes me want to visit the real one.
I loved the model village, it was so cute! My niece didn't want to leave, she liked watching the train go round.
I have no idea how to pronounce or spell this. It's was basically a ham and noodle casserole. And I love casserole so a winner in my book.
Africa is not a country, I'm disappointed in you Disney.
Chins this was my last meal I was so full I could barely eat anymore.
Chicken Dumpling, so good 😋
Mexico, we had successfully traveled the world. I didn't eat all the foods, but I had most of them. We were all ready to go home so we started to bhead back.
Post Disney Pic! We went back home where we took our showers and lay down. Ton is the last day of Disney.
