That big golf ball in the sky

Years ago Brett and I had a free Thanksgiving day so we headed over to Walt Disney World to spend the day at Epcot. It wasn’t too busy in the morning and we were able to ride most everything we had planned to but it got crazy busy later in the afternoon. We took a break and climbed on the monorail and headed over to walk around at some of the Disney hotels just to get away from the crowds. All of the hotels that were on the monorail line were already decorated for Christmas so it was fun to walk around. Then we headed back over to Epcot to have dinner at the nice Italian restaurant.

It’s always fun to see that big iconic space ball light up at  night.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I’ll be spending the day with family

If this doesn’t get me in the spirit nothing will. I am spending today at Epcot with Brett. We are having a staycation day since Disney is only an hour away from our house.  The above were all taken last year in December when I took my sister here for the day during her visit. I was traveling light so all of the above were taken with my Iphone. I’m sure the decorations look the same this year. I’ll let you know if it has changed any.  Instead of turkey and stuffing for our meal today, we are going to eat Italian food (or maybe French, or maybe German, or maybe even Japanese)! Or we could have a little of every county. It’s fun to snack around the countries at Epcot. I plan on coming home with a tummy ache from all the stuff I eat today. But isn’t that what you’re suppose to do on Thanksgiving?  Hope you have a nice one as well.

My sister was visiting from South Dakota for Christmas and we were talking about going to Disney World when we were growing up. She had not been in over 15 years so we decided to go over the Tuesday before Christmas (It’s only an hour away). I take it for granted living so close. I only go over once or twice a year and it’s usually on a random weekday when school is in so I was thinking since it was a Tuesday it might not be too crowded. Wrong! It was wall to wall people. We got there a half hour after the park opened and all of the best rides had been booked for the day. We did ride a few attractions and wandered around the countries. We had lunch in France. It kept getting more crowded so we headed out after 3pm. I didn’t want to lug around my regular camera stuff so I just took my Iphone and all of the above were taken with that.

Hubby and I drove over to Epcot on Thanksgiving day. It’s only an hour away so we thought we’d have a fun day running around instead of hanging out on the couch stuffing our faces. We had lunch in Italy, pretzels in Germany and ice cream sundaes in America. It was sunny and 70 degrees. The park wasn’t too crowded and we didn’t wait long for any of the rides. The only one with the long wait was our favorite, Soarin. We used the fast pass and walked right in at 2pm. We were pretty tired when we got home that night. So, we spent Friday on the couch instead.
