Our first full day at Disney World was spend in Epcot. We were up bright and early to have breakfast with the princesses in Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. We saw Belle, Cinderella, Ariel, Snow White, and Aurora.
After breakfast we headed over to Test Track. Lance and Sam rode it first. By the time they were done, Reese and I didn’t have time to ride because we had to go across the park to use our Soarin’ fast passes. I still don’t know if I like the new way the fast passes are done but maybe I just need to be a better planner. While we were waiting on the boys we enjoyed watching these Jammitors perform.
In Epcot there were several games and activities for the kids to do.
There were also several characters around. It was so hot the whole week that any chance we got to sneak inside for a bit we did. We found Jasmine and Aladdin. Jasmine is Reese’s favorite princess so she couldn’t wait to see her.
I think out of all the characters we saw through out the week, these guys were the most interactive and super sweet. Both boys stayed in the stroller while Reese talked to them but then they both came over to the boys to talk to them. Hayes had my phone and was watching the parade from the Halloween party. When they asked him what he was doing I told them. Both of them seemed super excited and wanted to see themselves in the parade.
We also found Mary Poppins.
Because it was so hot and everyone was tired from our late night the night before, we decided to head back to the room to rest for a bit. We tried to get everyone to take a little nap but Sam was the only one to actually fall asleep for a bit. We were all so excited to head back in to Epcot because we were going to see get to see some of our favorite people. We hadn’t been able to see Lance’s cousin in two years because they were living overseas. The last time we saw them their daughter was two and a half months old and I was days away from having Hayes. Needless to say, every one was super excited to be reunited. After a quick reunion, we had to head straight to our dinner reservations. We ate dinner at Coral Reef. There is a large aquarium on the front wall so you can see sea creatures swimming around during dinner.
After dinner we got to ride several rides including finally getting to ride on Test Track.
Reese was super nervous but so excited to get to ride with Claire!
While Lance and Bryan took Reese and Sam on a ride, Claire and I took the babies on Spaceship Earth. This was the second time I had taken Hayes on this ride and both times he fell asleep. It was too funny.
After we all met up again, we headed out of the park around 9:00. We had lots of late nights and early mornings but everyone did great.
Magic Kingdom next…
