For our second full day, we decided to head to Epcot.
The weather had improved since the previous day, & instead of getting rained on, we got hit with intense humidity. We both decided we’d take that over the constant rain though!
We spent our morning hitting up a few rides, & taking a walk around the World Showcase.
Eventually, we worked up an appetite for lunch. I went with a turkey sandwich on some delicious, toasty, bread, which came with potato salad. I ate most of the sandwich & only a little of the salad. The salad was good, but very oily.
We spent the majority of our afternoon waiting in line for a relatively-new ride called Soarin’. From the Disney website…
“Soarin’ is a multi-sensory attraction for big kids, teens and adults in Epcot theme park that simulates a peaceful hang-gliding flight over the Golden State of California.
Fasten your seat belt on the multi-passenger glider and be lifted 40 feet into the air….
Special cameras on airplanes and helicopters captured many of the shots and the glider moves the same way the aircraft did, so you really feel like you’re flying as you glide over such awe-inspiring vistas and landmarks as :
- San Francisco
- Golden Gate Bridge
- Redwood Creek
- Napa Valley
- Lake Tahoe
- Yosemite National Park
- Anaza-Borrego Desert State Park
- San Diego
- Los Angeles
Feel the wind in your hair. The air fills with the scent of orange groves, evergreens and the sea breeze. Your feet dangle free. Dip down so close to the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, you think your toes will get wet. Then return to the sky and continue on Soarin’ to a fantastic finale where fireworks burst into sensational colors around you.”
It was pretty cool, but it couldn’t have lasted more than 4 minutes & we waited for over an hour. Oh well, I guess that’s what we expected when we decided to go to Disney during the summer.
Soon enough, dinner time rolled around & we headed to our reservation at the Coral Reef Restaurant. We were lucky enough to be seated right by the “tank” & we got to watch all sorts of aquatic life as we dined.
For my entree, I ordered the lobster ravioli, which was pretty tasty!
What’s the best trip you’ve ever been on?
