Destination Disney~Epcot

My dear friend Heidi host Destination Disney every Friday. This week I am finally able to participate because we have just visited. Epcot was a great place to visit because there are so many different and wonderful things to experience. We loved Soarin and were completely amazed at this ride. You cannot believe until you try it. It truly made you feel like you were riding above cities, lakes, golfers, skiers and even right in the middle of the Magic Kingdom fireworks. We were sad to have missed the Illuminations show. That just gives us something to look forward to if we have a chance to return, which I might add, we are totally looking forward to. We are Disney addicted!!


Here are some pictures from our day at Epcot:

Here we are in front of the Epcot icon. Spaceship Earth is a great ride that is actually in the Epcot ball. This was a fun ride. At the beginning they snap a picture of you and then at the end of the ride it is added to what you pick as your future home and life. Really fun.

Here we are headed to Soarin.


These pictures are from Soarin. They are not that great because it was dark and we could not use flash photography. You actually feel like you are flying over all of these places.


Living with the Land was a great ride at Epcot. It was very educational and I was completely amazed at the greenhouses. They were growing many rare varieties of vegetables. There were also fish and eel that they were raising. They actually use everything they grow in their restaurants. There was alot about sustainable living and finding new ways to care for our earth including not using pesticides and chemicals. This was totally up my ally.

Epcot also has a great character spot and this is where we were able to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Pluto and Goofy.

Mission Space is also another can't miss ride. What is great is they have a mild ride and than a more turbulent ride for those who are brave enough to try it. We did the mild ride and loved it.

Of course if you visit Epcot you can't miss the country showcase. It was so much fun to have a little bit of each country there.


I hope you have enjoyed the pictures of Epcot. It truly is an amazing park with so many different things to see and experience.
