Lon wanted to go back to Epcot and see the things we did not see. We missed a couple of things that we wanted to see, and forgot to get pennies fro four countries, so we will be going back later. Lon is getting smashed pennies all over the place and as far as Disney souvenirs go, these are a real bargin!
We use the photo pass. There is a photo of the two of us with Goofy. I am not sure how it exactly works, but I know I have the pictures I just have to go find out where to get them. (Mark, I will do that before I leave here. The line was just too long today)
Lon really wanted to go on Space Ship Earth. So we did. He thought it was very cool. All the history of the world and how we are forging the future.
We also listened to the band that was playing on the Canada stage, The Kilted *somethings. Bagpipes, guys in kilts. Good stuff. There were lots of guys in kilts today around the park. I wished them all a Happy Tartan day. I am cool like that
Lon got the autograph book signed and he got hugs and we used the photo pass and both got in the picture!!
Lon bought a lego book with his own money and had it sent back to the room. It will be here tomorrow
While we were taking a picture of Flat Stanley, a group of teachers came up to us and wanted to take our Flat Stanley's photo. I let them. Lon was chatting with them about Stan. They thought I was a teacher and his mother. Second time today.
Part of the Epcot Garden show is an excersize showcase, but they also were giving away applesauce packets. Once you ate the applesauce, you gave the packet back to them. They filled it with dirt.
Except the pearls. Lon wanted to pick an oyster and get a pearl.
So we did all right. We could not agree on a setting, so we did not get that. We are just bringing home the pearls.
Spy man Lon. He was looking over to France
I know the pictures could use a bit of a crop, but I will work on that at home. For now, I just want to get them up before I forget!
The ice tea was very good.
Lon was so excited to finally have his pizza, but they did not put on the fresh basil. He asked the waiter where it was. The waiter said most kids do not like it. Lon said, but I do, and could you please add some? The waiter thought he was a great kid from that moment forward. Real mozzeralla cheese, wood fired pizza. SO good.
I got the Zeppole. I have to make those at home someday. Lovely little riccotta doughnut holes. You dip them yourself in to a deep dark chocolate then into a pile of whipped cream. Lon ate all his gelato and half my zeppole.
The lady who was dining behind us, asked me about Flat Stanley, since I pulled him out and took his photo. We chatted and she said I should be a teacher. Third time today.
Watching the trains in Germany. Those garden trains fascinate Lon.
We looked around Germany. I looked at getting a Nutcracker (no Mickey types) but they wanted a lot more money than they do in Leavenworth, so I will get a good one there and not worry about shipping it home.
After Norway we went to Mexico. Lon watched the glass artists. They were wonderful. But getting that home would be a challenge.
After one last ride on Space Ship Earth, we went back to our hotel, did not see our buddy Bill.
When we got back to the room, I remembered we needed to go down to Port Royal to pick up our cups. We can refill them with juice, soda or water at Port Royal through out our stay. Lon got the blue lid and I picked out a black lid. The pictures on the cups are the same.
Lon talked to a very nice cast member named Laura and told him all about the pins he was getting. It was fun to trade them. She pulled out a board and asked which one he wanted to trade for. Lon said he would have to come back and trade since he did not bring any of this pins with him. She asked which one was his favorites, maybe she could hold it for him till later. He pointed to a little black kitten. She pulled it off the board and handed it to him. She told him it was a present, since he was such a good kid. He said Thank you. Several times. He told me that one does not go in his for trade pins.
We walked back to our room, Lon is still awake. I hope he gets some sleep soon.
We both got a little sunburnt today. Tomorrow it is super sunscreen!! and the Magic Kingdom
We will be coming back to Epcot to get the last of the pennies.
