Yes, I'm still talking about our Disney trip. :) We've had about 12,492 other things occur in our lives since we returned, but I just don't feel right moving on without sharing more of our wonderful trip first.
My very favorite Disney park is easily Epcot.
I love it and would happily spend everyday there if my family would let me. :)
They love it too, but seriously, I could live there. This year we spent two days at Epcot and I really tried to convince Todd we needed a third, but he wouldn't cave. Here are some highlights from our 1st Epcot Day.

And 3 of us waiting for an activity inside one of the Innoventions buildings.

We didn't visit the Innoventions buildings last year (short on time), so we made sure to check them out this time. Lots of fun, learny stuff (and it's air conditioned), so it's just my kind of thing.
My favorite part of Epcot is the World and since I like to think of myself as a bit of an Anglophile (I'm only sort of joking), I couldn't wait to have dinner at Epcot's Rose and Crown (in the "England" part of the World). It did not disappoint. The only thing that did- I couldn't indulge in a good British Beer the way I wanted to. Next time though, I promise (to myself).
I loved that dinner was everything I wanted it to be. We got to sit outside, right on the water, beautiful weather, the kids mostly behaved and my fish and chips were just right. SO good.
The kids also participated in a great "Kim Possible" activity. They got to pretend they were Secret Agents on a mission. They got their "orders" and hunted for clues around the World sent to them via their very own little cell phones. They were in heaven.
FYI: This is what Todd and I look like from Garrett's angle. Kind of fun to hand the camera to the shortest person in the group once in awhile. :)
Inside "Norway" in the the World, getting ready to ride Mealstrom. Loved it. :)
Of all the evening shows, at all the parks, "Illuminations" at Epcot was my very favorite. It's beautiful, you can see it from any angle around the World and there's room for everyone to spread out.
So that way, in case your family watches fireworks displays like mine does....
You don't have to get too close. :)
