Day 4 – November 2, 2009
So I am going to finish this…If only so alyssa has record of her first trip!
Today was out day at Epcot. We didn’t rush to get up, we kinda took our time as we were getting more tired as the trip went on.
Alyssa loved the room with the bunk beds.
We got dressed and headed to the boat launch to head up to the main area for Breakfast.
Once we were at the boat launch we only had about a 6 or 7 minute wait for a boat. I loved having the boat option.
We were all hungry so we got in line and got some breakfast. Then we sat and ate. Alyssa loves her SaSa (Sausage) so that is what she had. I think I had a breakfast sandwich.
We hopped on a bus and were at Epcot in no time.
Our first stop was the Charater Conection. Alyssa was loving meeting the characters so much.
Hugs and Kisses all around.
This next picture is one of my favorites from the whole trip!
Look at her pirate smile….She did not like being asked to smile so much and started giving us this silly smile. LOL
Donald turned around too fast and banged her little lip with his nose. Poor thing…she was kinda scared of him after that. LOL
Once we were finally out of there an hour or so later…The line was nuts that day…we headed to the Seas with Nemo and Friends. “Dory” is one of ALyssa’s favorite movies. So we knew she would like the ride.
She loved it! Pete and I had seen it on our Honeymoon, but it was a first for my sister and her family.
As soon as that ride was over we went to Turtle Talk and walked right in. It was great. So nice and dark and cool….you know the perfect Nap setting…Yup 3 minutes into Turtle Talk and Alyssa was OUT!
We headed over to the Land and my Sister and Brandon threw a fit when the guard told them they couldn’t take the stroller in. They didn’t understand why. LOL So I offered to sit with sleeping Alyssa and let them go ride soaring. It was like a 60 minute wait. We set up shop on the benches right inside the doors. Pete ran and got us a snack, some fruit and cheese. It was nice to sit and talk.
Alyssa woke up after about an hour or so. We stored the stroller and went down to get her something to eat.
She got Pasta Salad and fruit and a Drink.
When my sister and Brandon came they got a small salad and then we left the Land. We went to ride Figment! So cute.
Alyssa loved the play after the ride.
We stopped for a bathroom break and then hitched a ride on the boat to Moracco.
We saw the beast from afar…
We got snacks in France…Grey Goose and Orange Slushies and the boys got crapes. We got in line to see Aurora. She wasn’t out jet, but she was on her way.
While we were waiting in line Laura and Alyssa did some counting…
and some snacking…
and some playing….
Then out came Sleeping Beauty and Alyssa was Beyond excited!!!!
Look the pirate smile is back…LOL Aurora spent atleast 7 or 8 minutes with Alyssa. They talked and had a good time. After it was done and the next kids finally got their turn Alyssa wouldn’t let us leave. We had to stand there for 15 minutes and just watch and wave. It was sooo cute!
When we finally drug her away we got in line to meet Marie and while in line we ran into Jenna and Bobby! I was so excited one of my “Disney Birdes” got to meet Alyssa.
I never noticed before, but Marie is cross eyed…LOL
We said good bye to Jenna and Bobby and headed on to the international Gateway. Laura and Brandon and Alyssa had dinner at the Coral Reef while Pete and I were heading to the Yachtmans Steakhouse.
So Laura, Brandon and Alyssa headed back to the Seas with Nemo and Friends Pete and I headed to the Friendship boats.
This was my very first time on the boats in the Epcot area. We fell in love and can not wait to stay at the Boardwalk.
There was a wedding going on….
In the mean time Alyssa was enjoying what she slept through earlier in the day…
Laura and Brandon and ALyssa lucked out and got to sit right next to the glass.
Pete and I enjoyed a great boat ride. We were early so we rode all the way to MGM and then back to the Yacht Club.
We loved the Yacht Club. We wandered around a bit and took some pictures.
We Checked in an had a 5 minute wait for our table. Not bad at all and we were still a few minutes early.
They walk you past a disply of deserts on the way to your table…MMM…Deserts. LOL
Now much to Pete’s horror I starting taking pictures at the table. I was very considerate and didn’t use a flash. We also had an early reservation so the place was crawling with kids. I didn’t feel bad. Pete on the other hand wanted to turn invisiable. LOL
I got Iced tea and this was the set up. I don’t use sugar in my tea, but I thought it was cool to see the simple syrup.
The Butter..oh the sea salt made it so good.
The Bread selection was tasty too.
I got the Scallops and Pete got some soup. LOL The Scallops were sooo good. I want some right now.
About this time my sister and Brandon finished dinner and were heading back to the Treehouse.
It got a bit chilly.
Someone was getting sleepy.
Now it was dinner time….
Pete and I both got steak (duh! LOL) I think we both got the Rib Eye. Mine VERY VERY well done and his Medium (Bloody).
We shared an order of Mushroom Risotto. This was so so good!
They had personalized Menu’s for us. I thought it was such a sweet touch. We also got some Anniversay Chocolates. MMM they were good!
For Desert I had a Triple chocolate thing….It was really good. The Peanut Butter one was the best. I got two Peanut Butter ones and left off the Coffee one.
Pete had some pie…blah.
We decided to take the boat over to the boardwalk.
We got off at the Swan and Dolphin and Walked over.
We Really fell in Love with the Boardwalk. I want to have pictures taken here next trip.
We stopped and talked to the DVC People. I want to buy in sooo bad. I am mad because if we didn’t have bills to pay off and home improvements we could totally have bought in with our tax return and paid in FULL!
After that we went into the store and got some stuff….A shirt and Socks for Alyssa a Car Mickey for me and some pins for Pete.
Then we went to the Candy shop to use some snack credits. We got Alyssa the cutest Dory Cookie that stained her lips blue. We also got some fundge and an Ice Cream Cone to share.
We stopped by the Bakery, but didn’t buy anything.
We then walked around inside the Boardwalk and Totally loved it!
Took a few pictures on our way out.
We headed out to get a bus to go to downtown Disney to get the Boat to the Treehouses, but we were too tired and took a cab! LOL
This is what we found when we got back to the Treehouse. I guess we were not the only ones tired!
