Disneyworld - Day 5

Last day in Orlando!

I woke up at 7am EST.  Not ideal but that is when my brain was done sleeping.  I decided to let Mason sleep in til 9 as he was pretty tired and we had a storm last night and I figured the weather might be less sunny which was not an incentive to rush out the door.

We left at 9:30am to head to breakfast.  I researched Google to find a restaurant that was not a chain but had pancakes, waffles etc.  I chose Dixie Belle's which was about a 20 min drive from our hotel.  I had to use up all that extra gas I bought my mistake.  It was a cute little restaurant, very USA themed:

Mason had french toast and I had 2 eggs, 2 bacon & 2 pancakes.  Nothing fancy.  Total was $22.17 USD inc tax & tip.

Next stop - Epcot.  Another 30 mins or so in the car.  Parking was the same price and close to the entrance, no shuttles needed.  I have heard of Epcot but had no idea what to expect.  I forgot we had reservations for 10:30am, we arrived just after 10:45pm so we missed that ride.

 As we got situated, I realized that it was themed.  Space/ Nature / Science & Food by country. The map of the property showed sprawling grounds so I expected a lot of steps today.  I will have to say I was disappointed by the Canada area.  It's theme was a totem pole and flannel.  Hardly a good representation of my country! 

Notice the smile isn't as bright lol

This place is great for foodies, there were a LOT of options.  I didn't want to spend a lot of money on food we we bypassed most of it.  It was cute to watch Mason look at the foliage, birds and random bugs.  This park didn't have a lot of options for teen appropriate rides.  We selected three:

  1. Spaceship Earth
  2. Remi's Ratatouille Adventure.  This was our favourite 3D ride.  It was adorable and had special effects with wind and water.  

The other exhibits we visited were:

  1. Journey Into Imagination with Figment.  This was an oops.  The app says 'all ages' but it really should state 'recommended ages' and for this it should have said 5 years old.  Mason was glaring me the whole ride. 
  2. Living with the Land.  This was a float ride through the greenhouse of the Land Pavilion and you toured all of the edible flowers, veggies & fruit they were growing inside.  It was an impressive set up


Mason asked to buy a Mickey Mouse pen which cost $9.99 USD/ $14.89.  I told him he was probably going to lose it.  He is reimbursing me for it.  #noveltyitem.

I started to get hungry for lunch so we stopped by the food court that is inside of The Land.  There were three sections that had a few different food options.  I opted for a poke/noodle bowl.  It cost $13.89 USD / $18.32 CAD.  It was filling and somewhat yummy:

By 3:30pm we were pretty much walked/entertained out so we headed to the car.  Traffic was a bit slow heading back to the hotel, I guess we hit rush hour.  Back to the room, Mason is having a late late lunch and a nap.  We contemplated heading to the pool but the weather turned to overcast and the wind picked up.  I am anticipating another rainstorm tonight!
