It’s a “Wonder” I survived Trip Report: Day 7 – Epcot & Le Cellier

The cast:
Me – Disney obsessed, Shopaholic & extremely clumsy…..
Lee (DH) – aka the Mad Hatter….


14th September 2009 = Day 7


Woke about 8am this morning, Lee wanted to use the internet so we had a relaxing morning in the room, well I say relaxing - Lee was on top form today….I don’t know how many times I was subjected to “Do the worm”. He also decided that throwing rolled up socks at me was hilarious. Actually after about the first ten times of them bouncing off my head along with Lee giggling like a little girl I gave up trying to act mad at him and we ended up crying with laughter throwing socks at each other like two little
kids.


Eventually we got ready to go out but first we rang Virgin again to see if his iTouch had been handed in but it hadn’t. We walked over to Hospitality House and got the bus to Epcot about midday.


We took some photos of Spaceship Earth and got a photopass pic taken.






Let me correct that I tried to take some photos of Spaceship Earth.


I could tell it was going to be one of those days!















Finally…….(although actually there are several more of Lee’s head but I’m sure you’ve got the idea!)








We went on Spaceship Earth, where Lee's face pulling continued.





We then stopped to watch the fountain display…





Then as we walked past Mousegear something strange happened….an invisible force pulled me in, I tried my best to get away but failed!

I think it may have been something to do with this little green alien?





Eventually we made it out with only one item purchased! Although it was a cute pink mickey head collar for one of our pups.


We had quite a few hours before our reservation at Le Cellier so got the boat over to Morrocco to continue around World Showcase from where we finished the other day, firstly stopping off for..…errr well I can’t call it breakfast or even brunch in the middle of the afternoon, so a snack I guess? in America, where we shared a funnel cake….YUM!





It was a very humid day but the sky was looking a little overcast, we slowly mooched around the American pavilion and Italy…








Continued below....

It was then that we realised that time was getting on and we had better head back in the direction of Canada. We had a look around the shop in Japan and also stopped in the Plume Et Palette (the Perfume shop in France) as I wanted to get a perfume set that I spotted the other day, Very Irresistible by Givenchy. We still had a bit of time before our dinner reservation so we decided that an aperitif was in order so where better than the Rose & Crown. Lee had a pint of Stella and I opted for a Welsh Dragon…..in homage to my pal Jules (Saratogagirl)


Welsh Dragon: Peach schnapps, Melon liqueur, créme de Menthe, Orange Juice, and Pineapple Juice.




Once we had finished our drinks we wondered over to Le Cellier and checked in, we were seated after ten minutes or so. To start Lee decided on Duck Three-Ways: Confit, Rillette, and Fleischnecke with Orange Gastrique. (No photos I’m afraid – I guess we forgot? ) I couldn’t resist having the famous Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup - made with Moosehead Beer and Smoked Bacon…..perfect for dipping the lovely bread sticks in. Lee had a coke & I had a Red Maple smoothie – which was raspberry & sprite, lovely and refreshing.


For the main course we both chose the Mushroom Filet Mignon - with wild mushroom risotto, white truffle and herb butter sauce. I had been worrying that this wouldn’t live up to my expectations as I first had it in December and loved it so I hoped that it wouldn’t disappoint…..which it didn’t! We both chose the Maple Crème Brulee for dessert. The meal was lovely the only slight disappoint was the service, our server totally forgot the side order of onion rings and generally it was extremely slow but we weren’t in a rush so no big deal. We used 1 x table service credit each and paid out of pocket for the starters + tip.

We left about 8pm, after deciding not to wait to watch Illuminations as my ankle was hurting. We got the bus back to OKW & relaxed watching tv for a few hours.


Coming up next…..A relaxing day, Narcoosee’s & a big surprise for Lee.

at Lee, he is so funny!!

I was reading about that Welsh Dragon drink on the Restaurant board a couple of days ago and already decided I would like to try it. It looks so refreshing.

Oops, nearly forgot to say what a lovely relaxing day. I hope your ankle is feeling better tomorrow.
