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.

Disney World – Day 4 – Epcot

Today was our second and final day at Epcot.

We had lunch upon our arrival today. We ate in Mexico, outside at La Cantina de San Angel. We both had the beef tacos and we split a margarita. Nice lunch 🙂

We did two things in Future World East today. We did Ellen’s Energy Adventure and Innoventions. We’ve done these before and as Ellen’s Energy Adventure was right after lunch, I snoozed through much of it.

Over in Future World West, we also did two things. Journey into Imagination with Figment and The Seas with Nemo and Friends. Figment was a bit of a snoozer as we’ve done it a few times in the past. I enjoyed Nemo and Friends more as there’s a live aquarium there with real sea life in it.Epcot - The Seas with Nemo and Friends 1Epcot - The Seas with Nemo and Friends 2

Back in Mexico, we took the Gran Fiesta Tour (a boat ride). Done it a few times in the past. Still nice to sit and ride a boat 🙂
