Like umpteen quilters before us, I'm sure, we quickly spotted the design possibilities in that huge Epcot ball!
Spaceship Earth took us on a ride into the future.
Then we went through Advanced Space Training (passed up the weightlessness experience!), and through the magic of flight simulation, we blasted off into outer space and piloted our rocket to Mars and back. It was amazingly realistic!
Soarin', however, was our favourite! We were hoisted high and, in a surround sound 3D sensation, 'flown' all over the world! We zoomed over the Great Wall of China and flew under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, dropped in on elephants in Africa and just missed clipping the Eiffel Tower as we whizzed past. A great ride for 'kids' of all ages!
After getting caught in a late afternoon downfall (resulting in my very silly hairdo) we sought refuge in the Disney/Pixar Short Film Festival, a hilarious and ingenious experience with 3D glasses.
We "visited" England, where these minstrels were playing outside the pub.
Italy, and the Doges' Palace in Venice,
And the USA where these singers entertained us and we sat in on An American Adventure, a moving presentation of American history.
We photographed complete strangers meeting Disney characters...
We found Nemo, and saw manatee up close!
And we continued, as quilters, to be captivated with that amazing Epcot ball.
...and by night.
As the sun set slowly in the west...
... we danced across paving stones that sparkled like stars as we made our way to the exit.
I really loved our day playing at Epcot, and taking a break from adulting!
I'll be back soon, after a few more adventures!
