Back to Epcot For Dining and Illuminations

In the past few days we have written the following articles about our 2012 visit to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida:

Today we write about our return to Disney’s Epcot for an afternoon and evening of enjoyment.

Gentle Attractions in Epcot Future World

The crowds were very light this afternoon which allowed us to visit any of the gentle attractions with hardly any wait in line. First up there was Captain EO with the late Michael Jackson.

 After viewing Ellen’s Energy Adventure with Bill Nye the Science Guy, we went hunting for chocolate!

Hunting For Delicious Chocolate in Epcot

A friend of mine indicated that there was excellent chocolate to be had at some of the country pavilions in the World Showcase area of Epcot. So, on our way back to our room at BoardWalk Villas to refresh prior to the evening festivities in Epcot, we stopped by both the shops of the Norway (interesting that the bars in the yellow wrapping are not from Norway but from Sweden) …

As it was a hot day we quickly went back to our room at BoardWalk Villas to pace the chocolate within the in-room mini-fridge.

Oh Canada, Redux

When we returned from our room at the BoardWalk Villas to Epcot, we has a little time before our ADR (advanced dining reservation) so we went back to see the Oh Canada short film with Martin Short. Don’t worry; none of these pictures were taken with flash photography! icon smile Back to Epcot For Dining and Illuminations

Canada is truly a very beautiful country, more than just Niagara Falls shown partially in the above picture. Below a nice picture of just some of its spring flowers from the film.

Of course there were many clips in the film showing snow boarders and downhill skiers. And here is one of the Fairmont Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia, neither of which I have visited yet am so looking forward to in the future.

Sadly they had just changed their dinner menu so Bangers & Mash are now limited to the luncheon menu; I know someone who will be disappointed. icon sad Back to Epcot For Dining and Illuminations

We shared this scallops appetizer which was delicious:
