The weekend is over….Boo! I had a nice long weekend, since I had Friday off. Friday & Sunday were spent running errands and relaxing. Saturday was a Disney day with the be sties.
We spent a good majority of the day enjoying the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot. We were kind of hoping for the cooler weather we have had all week, so we could wear jeans and sweaters and enjoy some fall weather, but we got clear skies, hot sun & no breeze. I know it hit at lease 85 degrees, so it was a little warm, but we’re used to it, so we had fun.
When we first entered the World Showcase our first big decision was to go right or left…we opted to head left. We walked by a couple of booths that didn’t really catch our eye & then we came to Austrailia. None of the main dishes really sounded like anything we wanted, but the dessert sounded pretty good, so that’s what we got for out first taste of the day and it was delicious!
After that, we headed for Mexico & went on the ride there. Didn’t bother with the food since it was mostly tacos and expensive margaritas…both which can be made at home…PASS!
Next up on our list, which is my most favorite country to get food….GERMANY! I stepped in line and ordered one of everything…Brat on a Pretzel Roll, Schinken Nudel (Pasta Gratin w/ Ham & Cheese) & Apple Strudel with Karamel-Vanilla Sauce. Don’t worry…I shared!
When we were all done stuffing our faces with yummy German goodness. We decided to play around with Stephanie’s new iPhone and take pictures of ourselves. It actually turned out pretty good because we were just being silly and having fun. Please excuse the brows…the German came out and they went crazy again. No worries…I have an appointment to whip them back into shape Friday! 🙂
After poking around in Germany and having some fun we headed towards France in search of Creme Brûlée & alcohol. I passed on the Creme Brûlée, as I was too full from all the food in Germany. I did go for a Grand Marnier Orange Slush….it tasted just like an orange push-up pop. So good! I was quite sad when it was all gone! 😦
After the orange slush, I was good to go for awhile as far as treats went. I think we headed towards Greece & Canada and the group split and everyone got what they wanted. I just wanted a water by that point, as I was a bit parched, since it was pretty darn warm out.
Next, we headed for Spaceship Earth before we left the park for the day. Stephanie & I ended up heading over to the Magic Kingdom though, since we wanted to ride a couple of our favorite rides. By the time we got over there, we decided we wanted ice cream. It was pretty good, but I think they gave me more whipped cream than ice cream.
When we were all done with our dessert we headed for the Laugh Floor & watched a quick show, which is always amusing. Then we headed for one of our favorite rides…Haunted Mansion. Got there and it was closed due to technical errors. So we started heading for the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and quickly turned around when we seen the line & wait time of over an hour. Next stop…Pirates of the Caribbean & guess what?! Closed due to technical errors! Ahhh! After that, we called it a day & headed home. The end.
