2016 – Walt Disney World – Day 2

Today was our middle day of visiting Walt Disney World.  We spent the entire day at E.P.C.O.T.

We arrived at EPCOT around 9:45 am and left just after 9:00 pm.  We walked around EPCOT 1.5 times and according to Apple Health, we walked over 14,000 steps.

We had sun most of the day and a slight breeze.  Temps were in the high-50s to low-60s.  We dressed warmly and stayed comfortable the whole time.

Because we went on a chilly Tuesday while school was in, the crowds were really light.  We had signed up for Fast Pass for a few attractions and we sped through all the attractions we wanted – in record time.  This left us plenty of time to walk around EPCOT at our leisure and take in lunch and dinner.

Here’s the rides/attractions we went in/on:

  • The Seas with Nemo and Friends
  • Living with “The Land”
  • Journey into Imagination with Figment
  • Test Track
  • Disney & Pixar: Short Film Festival
  • Gran Fiesta Tour (boat ride)

We ate lunch in Mexico at San Angel Inn Restaurante and we ate dinner in Paris at Chefs de France.

Below are a few pictures taken today and here’s a link to our complete Epcot image gallery on SmugMug.

2016 – Walt Disney World – Day 1

It’s been two years since we visited Walt Disney World.  As we were working in the area we figured it was time to come back for a couple of days before moving onto the next event. Here’s the RV all tucked into site 914.  The only issue with the site is no satellite TV from the rooftop dish :(

After dinner, we walked around the lake from the Yacht Club to the Board Walk area.  It was cold and getting late so once to the end of the Board Walk we took the water taxi back to the Yacht Club and headed home for the evening.
