{honeymoon day 5}









































Well I give up, so in no particular order are the Epcot pics...well just a few of them.

So about the trip...Thursday morning we got up at about 7am so we could be at Disney at 8am even though they don't open till 9am. This was our plan to beat the kids to the park. And might I add it worked, we were totally done with rides by 2pm. After wandering around to all the rides{which Jeremy spent the whole time saying "at six flags they have this"} that we wanted to ride in Future World we headed over to the World Showcase. Being the foodie couple that we are we decided to get something to eat at every country. Well we did skip a few but we managed to get a drink in Mexico, a pretzel in Norway, nothing in China{too common}, a dessert in France, skipped the food in Japan cause we were hurrying to get to another exhibit, a bratwurst in Germany, skipped gelato in Italy once we realized we could get that brand here, skipped America altogether{didn't hang around for anything}, fish and chips in England{yum yum}, and got to Canada only to realize it was way out of our price range.

While we were in France eating dessert it started to rain, so we waited, and waited, and waited, and it never went away. We talked to two ladies about cruises for about 15 minutes before giving up and running to England. I didn't realize how far the run was and my pretty little white shorts were completely see through by the time we made it. After hopping through a couple stores soaking wet we found out that Winnie the Pooh was supposed to make an appearance, but never did; then the 60's rock concert{that looked very Beatles like} was supposed to preform, but they didn't show up either. Stupid rain.

After that episode I insisted we find Minnie and Mickey and convinced Jeremy to wait in line forever to get pics clear on the other side of the park{by evening the place was over run with kids}. Which we did, soaking wet and looking like we were pulled behind the boat instead of riding in it to Future World.

Lucky enough we made it back to England in time to get fish and chips for dinner and watch the fireworks...or so we thought. As soon as we were done eating{on the ground in the middle of the sidewalk for that matter} it started pouring again, so we ran into the pub and crashed some unsuspecting family's reserved {expensive} table and finished our night at Epcot.

As a side note:
There would have been a day 6 but while waiting in line Jeremy starting talking about going to Savannah, GA to eat lunch at the Lady and Son's and I was so tired I talked him out of it. Now you know I'm tired if I don't wanna do something Paula Dean related. It was just after realizing how early we would have to get up to be there when they opened to ensure we actually got seated{they don't do reservations and there is a chance you won't get seated} I couldn't stand the thought of traveling anymore than we had to. So I opted to sleep in and just go home. I missed my dogs and couldn't stand the thought of adding a mile extra to our already long drive...so we came home. I regret not going to the Lady and Son's but there is always next summer, and always another vacation.

After all that driving I have seriously dreaded driving anywhere, even to the store, the gym, church, and I'm sure if someone was a mile away and said drive here and I'll give you money I might just say maybe later. Okay maybe not, but you get the point.
