Saturday we became world travelers as we again visited EPCOT. Very different seeing it through Reagan's eyes than walking the park with just adults. :)
Our first stop in the park was The Seas. We took a ride “underwater” to see Nemo and his friends.
Then, Crush, the turtle, gave us a presentation of his life underwater. He even took questions! This was probably one of the neatest attractions I've seen in a long time. We were seated in front a screen that looked like a real aquarium and Crush swam up and began speaking to us. He actually called on kids, identifying them by the color of their “shells” (their clothes) and the “fur on their noggins” (their hair). He asked their names and repeated them. Amazing technology. The kids, and adults, had a great time.
From The Seas we took a ride through Imagination with Figment. This was a cool way to see how technology and our imagination work together. Figment is a virtual purple dragon who escorted us throughout the attraction. One of the exhibits allowed you to “conduct” music by just waving your hands and arms.
The music would show up on the screen in front of you.
We continued on to Mexico where we had lunch and a boat ride with the Three Caballeros.
Donald even showed up for an autograph!
On our way out of Mexico, we walked through Norway,
and came to China. Isn't that how it works in real life??? :)
After a stop at the Trading Post to play the conga drums,
we took a moment for another photo op
and then it was time to leave EPCOT and get back to the campground for our reservations at the Hoop De Doo Musical Revue.
This dinner show is a hoot. Lots of good food and much laughter at the vaudevillian type show. We had attended this show almost 20 years ago and it is still a good time.
Whew. Four days of nonstop playing makes for some tired girlies.
It's gonna be hard to say good-bye . . .
