DAY 2 AT EPCOT
The rides we rode on were SOARIN, which was cool except for mine and Summer's fear of heights. It was like sitting in a sing up high and you traveled the world and made you feel like you were flying thru mountains, soarin above water and smells from the trees were nice and other fun stuff. We were lucky to get right in line for this ride with about a 15mt wait which isn't too bad.
The next ride was the COOLEST!! It's called TEST TRACK and you get to build and design your own car to race in. The kids designed theirs and Rich and I did ours, glad I could take some photos of the cars in process. The riding/race part was pretty fun and better then I thought it would be. Sam wanted to keep racing and sad we only got to do one lap. By the way it wasn't a real car or race of couse, just made you think/feel like it was. This ride took about 20mts to wait for, not bad.
We also took a boat ride in NORWAY, per teachers request for extra bonus points for Renee and Sam. We had to find this ride and got there just in time for the ride. This was ok, Rich and I were together and we can dozed thru it. haha sorry folks I guess we are old and get tired quickly. Blame it on the heat and lack of sleeping good in the hotel beds.
Was fun to get some character photos, the kids had mixed feelings about these and that started some arguements. Some of us wanted to wait in lines for them and others wanted to keep going.
The other ride was one for the FUTUREWORLD and pick what kinda of future you'd like to have. Rich and I were in this car and picked one that was earth friendly, they take your picture and use these to show you doing things in your story. Sooooo funny to see Rich and mine's heads bopping around on the screen. Rich rode his bike to work and I was home planting and watering the flowers. Our meals came from the garden and our house was made of all natural products and had a solar panels, soooo cool. There was different items we could have chosen but this was so perfect for us.
The other big ride we had to keep checking on to open, due to some issues they opened late. The write up for this one said it will make you sick and they give you barf bags, well Sam decided not to ride on it and sat out with me. Rich and the girls came back saying it was pretty cool and they had a mild ride if you didn't want to do the more extreme one. Well the line was too long to wait in so Sam missed out on that one and was bummed about it.
I would say this was our least favorite parks, didn't have much the kids were interested in and spent most of the day in lines/shows which kept us cool but wasn't that exciting. Not complaining, just stating how we felt and how the day went. I still say it was BEAUTIFUL everywhere and that alone made me happy. The kids thought there would be a lot more rides like the amusement parks back at home, these rides at Disney are not all like that.
Thanks so much for reading my ANIMAL KINGDOM post before, love sharing these with you and reading your comments. If you didn't see that post, scroll down to the one before this one. It was my favorite park that we went to.
Our next outing was meeting Bonita and Greg at their GORGEOUS beach house. I'm not kidding, the kids still talk about this and how fun it was and they want to live there. I was soooo thrilled to finally meet her and had the best time. Wish it could have lasted longer but I will go back on my own one day. I will post these pictures in a couple days.
HUGS AND PRAYERS going out to all those suffering in the tragedy's in this past week. Still shocked by these and wishing for no more of these tragedy's.
On a better note though, HAPPY EARTH DAY EVERYONE!!
