Magical Moments- Day 4

Day 4- Epcot

Sunday we woke up ready to head over to Epcot. We were able to walk to Epcot and enter in through the back entrance. The park opened at 9:00 and we were there a few minutes before the gates opened. It was raining at this time but we were convinced it would move out shortly as the Orlando rain storms always do. But boy were we wrong! When I say it rained all.day.long, I mean it rained nonstop, all day. If it wasn't pouring, it was a light drizzle where you still needed a poncho or an umbrella. Luckily we stocked up on ponchos at Target before we left.

At first we were totally bummed with all the rain but when we realized it wasn't going to stop we just got over it and didn't let it slow us down. Luckily most of the rides and attractions at Epcot are indoors so it really worked out great. Despite all the rain, it was still a great day! Two of the favorite rides of the day, Soarin and the Test Track.
An indoor boat ride.

Waiting for Crush, The Sea Turtle show.

The Finding Nemo ride, another favorite.
We had lunch in the World Showcase part of Epcot. We had reservations at a restaurant in Germany.  Going back to the Eckel roots. It was a buffet so we were able to sample all the different types of food. 

Toasting our very large Diet Cokes!

The boys toasting their very large German beer!

We did the Character Spot again and loved watching the kids get SO excited to see their favorite pals. 

And let me tell you, Sarah had NO fear of the characters! She loved them all, giving them lots of hugs and high fives. 

Luke doing his excited, happy dance! He loved the characters!

Look at that big hug she is giving Donald!

She wants Chip and Dale's attention. 

And she got it!

Now what cracks me up about this picture is she is standing so far away and doesn't seem too sure.  And this was taken after all the hugs. 

Dreary, dreary day! You can barely make out the Epcot ball with that gray sky.

This time of the year is the Flower and Garden show at Epcot. 

Next up- Day 5- Animal Kingdom
