Disney: Day 5 (Epcot)

We went to Epcot on Wednesday and it was a blast! Second to Harry Potter World, Epcot was my favorite! Addi was rearing to go and had her Disney outfit on!

Addi decided that Michael was her favorite person on the trip, so he got to hold her for most of the day. It was very sweet!

We had lunch reservations in Italy, so we made our way back there and killed some time in front of this fountain. We have been fortunate enough to have traveled to the real Italy and this was surprisingly pretty similar! The food was very authentic and so were some of the buildings (minus being hundreds of years old.)

Our lunch was incredible and I'm so sad I didn't take any pictures! We shared a aged salami and provolone starter plate that was to die for! We also got a quattro formaggio pizza, and a pasta dish to share. It made me want to go back to Italy! After lunch, me and Rhen grabbed some cappuccinos!

We walked to Morocco after that and hilarity ensued once Michael knocked over a mannequin while we were all wearing fez hats.

Photo op on the fluffy pillows!

We stopped in France for a bit. Addi HATED this beret. :(

Guess who we saw coming out of the France shop..........

SLEEPING BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got WAYY to excited when I saw her pink dress and may have screamed at everyone to follow that princess!!! I was so excited, because I really wanted Addi to meet at least one princess while we were in Disney! We were probably fourth in line, but judging by the excitement on my face, you would have thought we were actually getting to live in Cinderella's castle for a year.

And then the moment first Addi wanted her to actually hold her, but legally she can't, so we sat her beside the princess. This first picture isn't that great,because Addi's eyes are kinda half open. The Disney photographer took a lot so I am in the process of getting some of what he took.

These next pictures are the sweetest. Sleeping Beauty was speaking so softly and sweetly to Addi about how she knows she will be a princess one day and to dream as big as she wants. Addi is looking at her so intently. Just melts my heart!!!

Then, she gave Addi a kiss. Oh my word. We left the lipstick print on her little cheek for the rest of the night. It was so cute!

And as luck would have it...guess who we saw next?


I have to be honest, I've never watched Mary Poppins. Addi loved her too just the same though. Not as much as Sleeping Beauty of course, but I think she liked the funny phrases she was saying.

Since we were in England, we had to do the photo in the phone booth.

We took Addi to the Seas after we got through all the countries. It was all about Nemo so we thought Addi would LOVE it.

We did this little ride that you ride in clams and you go through and it's a bunch of screens with Nemo and friends. Addi was pretty engrossed, so we went through twice!

This was Addi's souvenir from Disney, the GIANT Nemo!

Really cool aquarium place that had shark facts on the wall!

We all met up for dinner in Germany afterwards! It was really good and there was even a show!

We made it out in time to watch the huge fireworks show over Epcot. It was so cool, but Addi wasn't a big fan! She doesn't like loud noises so for the first half she got on Michael's shoulders which she was excited about, but then she was over it!

And then, the sweetest thing happened...on the walk to the bus, Addi fell asleep on Michael's shoulder!!! We all could have died from the sweetness of it!

She slept from the bus to the hotel and he even successfully transferred her to the pack and play. That has never happened! She usually wakes up when she feels us laying her down. Haha! She must have been very worn out!


  1. Looks sooooo fun! Yall were lucky you could get a pic with Sleeping Beauty AND Mary Poppins! Those are rare ;)

  2. Epcot is where your get a lot of character photos! It too is my favorite place! Love Addi's shirt! She was probably the best dressed toddler running around Disney that is for sure!

  4. You must get the Mary Poppins DVD... It will become one of your best DVD...Thank you for taking the time and than sharing this blog...It really keeps me in touch with your busy busy life....
