Day Four: Epcot!

Mad Dog joined us on Friday for Epcot. Since he was joining us, we let Aunt Tiffany and Uncle Sean sleep in while we went for breakfast and headed to the park. Once in Epcot we headed for The Seas, which was once called The Living Seas. Mad Dog thought Lex would enjoy Nemo movie inside. Mad Dog and Lex went off in search of fish and Loki and I took a walk in a few of the shops to keep cool. Once out I was informed by Mad Dog that I rank above fish in Lex’s world, but sadly sharks rank above Momma. I guess there are somethings that are just cooler than dear old Mom (maybe I need a bigger boat). 

After talking with the first we visited Imagination, which I remember as a kid. Figment became a beloved character to my Mother and my brother, Kevin. I think we went on the Journey into Imagination several time on that trip. Of course like so many things in Disney it has been redone. They have added Eric Idle to the ride. It is still cute and the song doesn’t get stuck in your head like it did before. I don’t think Lex cared either way for it to be honest. Loki, I think on the other hand was just happy to be out of the stroller. 

Sean and Tiffany joined us after Imagination, and directed us to Spaceship Earth (a.k.a. The Big Ball). Tiffany and Lex rode together, leaving Mad Dog and I with Loki and Sean on his own. We offered to have Loki ride with him, but he said no thank you. (He doesn’t know what to do with her.) Sean and Mad Dog rode Mission: Space, while Tiffany and I watched Lex play in a water feature with other kids. Then Mad Dog and I rode Test Track while Sean and Tiffany watched the kids (oh, and shopped). By this time everyone was hungry. 

We grabbed burgers and chicken nuggets at one of the pavilions and then said good-bye to Sean and Tiffany for awhile. We attempted to make our way through the World Showcase with Lex and Loki. Not something I look forward to doing ever again. It was very hot and my sunburn (which I had managed to get over the past 4 days) was on fire. Lex didn’t want to ride in the stroller and didn’t want to listen. Our only real mission in World Showcase was to got the France and pick up something for Gigi. We had asked her where she wanted something from and she asked for something from France. Once that was done Mad Dog and I gave up and headed back to take the kids swimming in the pool and start packing.

That evening Sean and Tiffany watched the kids so Mad Dog and I could have some us time in Downtown Disney. We traveled to the Lego Store, Disney Store and had dinner at Paradiso 37. We enjoyed Central American Crazy Corn: fire roasted Corn-on-the-Cob with Spicy Pepper Sauce with Cheeses; Caribbean Crab & Fish Fritters: Crab Meat, Shrimp, Fish, Peppers & Cilantro Fritters fried to a golden brown. Served with a coconut lime dipping sauce; North American Potato Pancakes: Prepared with a hint of chives and a special spice blend and sautéed to a golden brown; Mexican Quesadillas: a sampler of corn tortillas stuffed with braised chicken, grilled steak and BBQ pulled pork. I also indulged in a  Mango Margarita, which I don’t usually have. With the exception of the potato pancakes, which had not real flavor, everything was amazing. 

By the time we got back, the kids were sound asleep and Sean and Tiffany were ready to go get something to eat.
