Hey there mouseketeers! I apologize for my absence. I actually took a computer and camera and everything to Disneyworld, intending to blog a bit about the trip, but ended up being so plum worn out at the end of each day that I couldn't even think of it.
It was a magical and slightly overwhelming place! We spent a whole day in each of the four parks (the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, the Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios) and I still felt like there was a lot that we missed. And also, if you were not aware, Florida is sunny and hot! But it was good to spend some time with the family and, of course, hobnob with Mickey and the gang. (We also scaled the walls of Hogwarts, but the details of that will be revealed tomorrow!)
Sweet Sister and I in front of "Buckingham Palace" in Epcot's World Showcase. I have to confess, I was a little disappointed in the showcase. All the buildings were neat, but, on the whole, it was mostly just a lot of places to shop. (Although, they did have Pocky in the Japanese showcase, so that makes up for a lot.)
The greenhouse tour at Epcot. (Yes, I had to go see the gardens!) While it was certainly more of what I call "garden porn" than anything (i.e. really cool stuff that you really can't do at home), it was still pretty darned cool. And, yes, those are Brussels sprouts dangling from the ceiling.
