Epcot really is a beautiful park.. It seems to be my least favorite and I am not sure why I feel that way. I hope to explore some more next trip!

ahem....where is the "thanks, oh wonderful mother" for bidding and winning me the photo walk with Kathy? I seemed to have missed that part....

And for my comment at the store at Wilderness Lodge about getting RID of family instead of inviting them if you won the lottery. I crack myself up

You really should explore it more! There is still TONS of stuff I haven’t seen there. It really is a beautiful park and I know it can be boring for people, but the details are incredible and they really transport you to that country.

I, um, uh, included that! You must've missed it. I'm guessing because you are a little blind and all...
Yeah, real funny Mum.

Your last update is full of awesomesauce !!! How amazing that you got meet Kathy and spend some time with her !! Your photos are amazing as well. Especially the monorail ones.

And the one of your mum eating your face off. That was pretty awesome, too. As a mother, I can tell you that is a sign of love and affection.

It was so awesome to hang out with Kathy! (:
Thank you! I LOVE how the monorail ones came out.
Eating off my face shows love and affection?! Ok then...

My photo walk at Epcot - PART 2! / Lunch!

After we finished up in Canada, we headed through France and Morocco.

In Morocco, we went into The Gallery of Arts and History, which is the little Moroccan museum near the front of the pavilion. Usually, we just go right by that kind of stuff, but we checked it out for a few. Kathy told us how the mosaics on the walls are never perfect because only their God can create something that is perfect. So if you look at all of the mosaics, you can see little flaws, as this is done on purpose.

Disney and all of their details.

GAHHHHHH.

We looked around Morocco only for a few more minutes and I saw Henry.

And I kind of died.

I tried not to run up to him and give him a big hug. I was really itchin to, but that would have been just weird right then, so I secretly waved to him and told him I would see him later.

I know you guys are thinking “Who the crap is Henry?” and “What is wrong with this girl?”

Answers to those questions: 1) Go look at my intro or go read my first TR (but y’all should’ve done that by now) and 2) I don’t know what’s wrong with moi.

SOOOOO, next we took the long journey to Japan—which was VERY tiring—and we checked out the little pond with all of the koi fish. At least that is what I think is in there.





We saw a segway tour going on around here. Kathy said she had done it before and it was great, except she couldn’t move after it for like two days.

Also, I found the really easy Hidden Mickey in the pond.

It’s not that hard at all.

Unless you are blind.

Like Mum.

Moving on…

We then headed to take pictures of the Itsukushima Shrine (aka the big red thing at the front of the pavilion in the water. And no I didn’t know the name of it off the top of my head. Google did.)






Love how this one came out.


Next we moved on to Italy.

A dude who is almost naked and two fish that look like replicas from the statues on top of the Fish (aka the Dolphin). Except they look really evil and are about to bite someone’s head off. (so they are like Mum).


Past Germany…


And into China!

We checked out a nice little waterfall.




We went past NorVAY and Mexico, and then we wrapped up our photo walk!

From my updates, it may have looked like it was very short, but it was after 12 at this point.

We talked to Kathy for a few more minutes and said goodbye.

The walk was AWESOME and she showed me a lot of different angles and places to take some pictures at, and I think Epcot was the perfect place to do so.

I had a lot of fun and it was great talking to someone who actually GETS Disney, instead of “the other people” who are there for rides. Yuck.

Now since I have some ideas and places around Epcot to take photos at, they’ll come out even better with the DSLR THAT I AM GETTING VERY SOOOOOOOOON. ONLY A LITTLE EXCITED.

After we said goodbye, we headed to the stores at the entrance of World Showcase that have names, but they totally escape me right now. One sf the Duffy store and then another one, which was converted into a Christmas store.

I am pretty sure we went into the Duffy Lovers store and that is where I got another vintage Epcot CENTER shirt, cause I needed another one.

I totally bypassed all of the Duffy merchandise because EWWWWWWWWWW. And plus Duffy is a mean bear and we are not friends.

We were all very hungry so we tried to decided on where to go for lunch, so we checked out the ever so wonderful My (Crappy) Disney Experience app.

We decided to go to China and get some yummy foooood.

Epcot is pretty much dead today.

We hit some really awful crowds on our way to China aka Disney Ducks begging for food and drunk people.

I am being sarcastic about the first part, but the second part is 99.9% accurate.

Some Christmasy bush thingy and a dude half-sitting on a railing. And strollers. Perfection.


We arrived!


We got in the imaginary line and ordered.

We got our food and found a table in this area that has awesome lights.




All of us got the shrimp fried rice and it came with an egg roll. It was YUMMMMAY.


I also got a strawberry smoothie and it was delicious.

Mum must’ve made a mess around her mouth or something. (YOU’RE WELCOME KIND MOTHER.)


I used the bathroom before we left to go explore the world some more.

The bathrooms in China are very nice. #random #bathroomtweet

And they play good music in them. #bathroomtweet


Important information.

You are very welcome.

Anywayyyys, we left China and moved on to Germany.


In Germany, they had a ton of blown glass ornaments that were beautiful.


Want. Need.




Some non-blown glass Disney ornaments.




…and I guess I took a picture of another Christmasy bush thingy before moving on to Heaven?

They are messed up. I truly don’t even know how they manage in everyday life. Ridiculous.

Where in MA do you live?!?!?! We are probably neighbors. Like, seriously.

Love Honey Boo Boo .. don't like Duffy .. yup .. we're twins.
I LOVE YOU AND YES WE ARE TWINS.
