Epcot Adventures

Our Disney dream vacation continued at Epcot My oldest son was super excited to bring us to visit this park because this is where he’s been working for the semester ( Disney College Program) Boo and I couldn’t wait to get up this morning and make our way to this iconic park!!!

Epcot
Epcot!

Our day started with an awesome suprise! David made us breakfast reservations at The Garden Grill!

Epcot
Disney Breakfast!!

This was such a fun experience for all of us, but when Boo saw some of his fave Disney characters walk right up to our table— his eyes lit up with a huge smile!!! He was bubbling with excitement!

 

Epcot
Disney Magic!

** I want to give a huge shout out and thank you to the staff of The Garden Grill…  This was several days into our Disney Park vacation, yet this was the first time Disney staff seemed at all concerned I have diabetic dietary needs… I simply asked our waiter to substitute whole wheat toast instead of pancakes because I’m diabetic and what he did next amazes me… He brought the chef out! The chef was kindly and told me the carbs and sugars in each item AND personally brought me fresh fruit with no sauce because they normally make it with a sugar glaze… I am so grateful for them taking the time to make sure my meal was diabetic friendly and we will ALWAYS eat here on our return trips!!!

After breakfast we had so much fun exploring Epcot There were so many fun rides to choose from!

Epcot
Mickey!

We went into Spaceship Earth and got to go on a stimulated space launch on Mission: Space ! The boys went on Chevrolet’s Test Track and after Boo had the time of his life pretending to drive their cars on display!

Epcot
Boo having fun!

Boo and I had fun on The Seas with Nemo and Turtle Talk With Crush! Then we went with David on Soarin’ … we LOVED this ride!

Next we made our way over to The World Showcase! It was so cool to see different cultures from around the globe !! We had fun looking in Haciendas in Mexico and riding the Frozen Ride in Norway!

Boo was thrilled to visit China!!! This was his fave part of our entire day! We ate Chinese food, (with chopsticks of course) tried  on Chinese hats and played with some awesome toys! We even saw a 360 movie that mad you feel like you were in China!

Epcot
Boo said he always wanted to go to China 🙂

We had snacks in Germany and Italy before heading to Morocco to listen to some beautiful music!

Epcot
Beauty and The Beast & Bambi!!

Of course we had to try a bakery in France and had fun exploring Canada and the United Kingdom as we ended our day of adventure!

Join me next week for the last post in my Disney Series and I’d love to hear from my readers: If you could visit one foreign land, where would it be and why?

    1. Hi Cheryl! I hope you get a chance to go back 🙂

  39. This looks awesome! I love how seriously they took your diabetic dietary needs. That’s hard to find when dining on vacation! We just got back from Disneyland and now I’m eager to check out WDW!

    1. Hi Marcie! That was so awesome of them! 🙂

  40. Hey! Looks like you had a great trip! You got some good snaps. I’ve never been to Disney World so I can’t wait to take my daughter when she’s a bit older. I’ll be like a big kid myself I’m sure.

    1. Thanks Shana! 🙂

  41. The Disney breakfasts are so much fun! I’d had forgotten about that from our last trip until I read your post!

    1. Thx Alexandria! 🙂

  44. This looks like such a great trip! I have never been to Epcot, but I know my daughter would go bananas for a trip there! I am really impressed by the chef coming out and talking to you about all of your dietary needs. That is really impressive!

    1. Hi Brittany! I was so impressed by that chef as well 🙂

  45. Epcot looks like a blast! That is awesome about the chef catering to your dietary needs; it is hard to find nowadays! I want to vacation with you guys!

    1. Hi Danielle! We had such a blast!! It was a wonderful vacation!!

  46. Sounds like such a fab experience. And I can see why you gave a ‘hats off’ to the chef. That’s going above and beyond.

    1. Hi, it really was!! 🙂

  47. What that chef did for you is so awesome. It’s so encouraging to encounter thoughtful people! I loved Epcot as a teenager. We took our kids about a year and a half ago. They were a little too young for it – especially for the price! Maybe we’ll try again in a few years.

    1. Hi Karla! This will be a fun place to take your kiddos when they are a little older 🙂

  48. I just love your smiles in these pictures! Once again you’ve captured a family-friendly adventure in such a genuine way. I love hearing about your family trips.

    1. Thank you Yvette!!! 🙂

  49. WOW! It seems so much fun there. My daughter will be very impressed 🙂

    1. Hi Monnka! It was super fun!!!

  50. I am so jealous of your wonderful trip! Every day you were going and seeing amazing things. Great memories made for you and your boys!

    1. Hi Leah! We made such happy memories!! 🙂

  51. I’ve actually never been to EPCOT – it’s on my list within the next couple of years so this helps. I have a kid to consider, so this helps – thank you!

    1. Hi Pooja! I hope you enjoy your trip when you get to go!

  52. I’ve never been to Disneyworld… because I am a West Coast gal who frequents Disneyland but these pictures sure do make me want to go!

    1. Hi Perri! I grew up on the West Coast too 🙂 We usually frequent Disneyland because it is near family when we visit but this trip to Orlando was amazing!!

  53. This brings back so many good memories from my childhood. I’m glad your family got to have this experience.

    1. Thanks Katie 🙂

  54. looks like you guys had a blast! 🙂

  55. We are going to Disney World in February! Epcot is one my favorite parks! They have so much new stuff from when I was last there, which was I think 2012.

    1. Hi Diana! I’m so excited for you! Have a great trip!!!

  56. Ant

    This is a trip that I want to take with my son when he’s old enough. My husband went a few times as a kid and remembers the trips fondly.

  71. Epcot is one of my favorite parks! I love Test Track and Soarin and I could spend days wandering around the World Showcase!

    1. Hi Vicki! Soaring is one of my faves too! 🙂

  72. This looks so fun and it clearly shows that you all had an awesome time. It’s amazing to visit places where your needs are well taken care of. For instance not all places would care to take care of your special needs like substituting foods that are not geared towards your medical needs. Thanks for sharing this place with us.

    1. Hi Mary! Epcot really was amazing in their hospitality!

  73. Love the pics and the blog. I want to visit this place now

  74. TS

    Thanks for sharing! Perfect weekend for the kids. My 8-year-old cousin would never come back if I take him there. Haha

    1. Hi! I’m glad you loved reading… 🙂

  75. Orangewayfarer

    Great pictures. I so wanna pack my bags now and start. May be when I will have my kids I will let them taste a bit of paradise here. Thanks for the share.

  76. Looks like you all had a nice time. On my bucket list!

  77. I have been to Disney World but unfortunately we were not able to visit Epcot Center because of time limitation. I hope we can go back to Orlando again one of these days to see this futuristic theme park.

    1. Hi Fred! I hope you get a chance to visit one day!

  78. Looks like a super fun day with the good old Disney characters. I’m so filled with nostalgia now! 🙂

    1. Thanks! We had a fabulous day here! 🙂
