Disney: Day 3 (Epcot)

Day 3 was our coldest day of the trip. We needed jackets all day. We started off the day at the Akershus Breakfast at the pavilion in Norway. The girls wore their favorite princess dresses to breakfast…and then refused to take them off for the rest of the day. I thought they would itch from all of that tulle, but they were fine!

The comment we received all day (to Kennedy)….”Queen Elsa! Did YOU make it so cold today? Are YOU responsible for this chill in the air!?” She kept looking at me like, “What are these people talking about!?”

The breakfast here was one of my favorites. It was a nice sit down meal without the atmosphere being too overwhelming (some of these character meals can get a little crazy).

Before we walked to our table, the girls were able to meet Belle (again) and get her signature. Belle asked if the girls were twins….c’mon Belle….

As we were eating, different princesses would come to our table and talk with the girls. They would ask them questions and sign their book.

This was the only place we were able to meet Aurora and Snow White, so I’m really glad we chose this character meal. It was also the only place we could get Belle’s signature (she doesn’t have time to sign in Enchanted Tales with Belle).

At one point, the princesses and kids paraded around the restaurant. Kennedy is so protective of Jules…she would not let her go!

This was the only place we saw Ariel with feet ;) Again, she was one of Kennedy and Jules’ favorites…they just light up when they see Ariel.

After breakfast, we headed to meet Mickey and friends at the Epcot Character Spot!

Mickey was up first! He loved to kiss those cheeks just like we do!

Minnie Mouse loved the girls’ dresses, and took turns with them twirling around.

Goofy was too funny. After he met with the girls, he came to Seth and I! He made Seth fist bump and hand shake, and then he kissed my hand. Love Goofy!

We did a couple of attractions at Epcot…there is not a TON that appeals to young kids, but while there, we were trying out different rides.

We hopped on a boat ride called Living with the Land. It showed the different agriculture the park grows and uses in the restaurants. Seth was interested in this one since he likes to garden. The girls were getting a little antsy towards the end!

One attraction the girls enjoyed was Turtle Talk with Crush. There were only five kids in the room, so Crush was able to REALLY point them out and talk to them one on one. Kennedy became shy, but Jules was surely talking to Crush!

Right after Crush, we walked right to The Seas with Nemo & friends.

We then headed to a 3D feature called Captain EO (featuring Michael Jackson). Disney really needs to update this attraction with a better 3D show. Seth and I were bored…not to mention, Kennedy and Jules were not interested at all!

Next we walked right into Journey into Imagination with Figment. This was a neat little ride that the girls enjoyed. It also had a museum-like room at the end that we played in for a while.

Next we headed to the one thing Seth wanted to do while we were in Disney…the world showcase. He had a goal to drink a beer in every country. Luckily, the girls fell asleep in the stroller, so we had a date around the world :) It was actually relaxing. We just walked the world showcase while he drank his beer in every single country – goal accomplished :)

I would love to go back to Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival. The food in every country smelled amazing. Seth wanted beer from every country, and I wanted to taste test in every country. I could just imagine the amount food (and wine) there when it’s festival time.

We did pass one princess while the girls were asleep…Mulan. I was going to go get her signature for them, but the line was pretty long. I just took a picture of her instead :/

Once they were up, we were just in time to see Aladdin & Jasmine in Morocco! For some reason, Jules really likes Jasmine. She kept saying, “I see her!”

Next we used our FastPass for Soarin’. What an awesome ride! Don’t worry, I made sure I could ride the attraction before I got on with Baby Folse! Kennedy just made the height, so I took her with me on the ride. Jules and Daddy went get snacks while they waited. Kennedy loved Soarin’! So did Mommy ;)

Before we went in for Soarin’, a photographer asked Kennedy to pretend like she was freezing something with her Elsa powers. When I looked at the picture, I just smiled. They inserted Olaf into the photo to make it look like Kennedy made him appear. Too cute :)

Our last attraction of the day was Spaceship Earth. It was a slow moving ride through the famous sphere in Epcot. It was not the most thrilling ride, but it gave us a chance to get off of our feet!

Epcot was a lot of walking since we did the world showcase. Not only did we walk all the countries, but we walked backwards through them again to make sure we didn’t miss anything (after all the girls were asleep). My legs were hurting this day!

That night we came back to the resort and let the girls play at the “beach”. At every island on our resort, there is a designated beach area with sand and hammocks. It was a bit chilly that day (the only day we needed jackets), but the girls didn’t mind at all.
