Our Big Family Vacation…Epcot, Day 1

another week has flown by & I’m back to add more vacation pics ;)! I decided to split this post into 2 since Epcot was our favorite Disney park & there are close to 200 pics to sift through and since i really like posting pics, it’s better for my editing sanity if I break it up…so, today is Epcot day 1, Monday (or Tuesday) will be Epcot day 2 :).

During all my pre-vacation planning I found out that Epcot offers SCUBA divers the chance to dive their aquarium (for a fee, of course) called DiveQuest. And since the hubby & son are certified divers, I signed them up so that even though we weren’t doing a beach/island vacation, they would still have the chance to get a dive in this year. So with that, we had to schedule our day a little differently since they would be gone for a few hours (the dive includes a behind the scenes tour as well) so we were pretty much skipping the World Showcase area and just concentrating on the front part with the rides. But skipping World Showcase meant skipping “drinking around the world” and that was just unacceptable for us grown-ups, and so we decided to return to Epcot the next day, which had been a built in rest day.

So, day 1…rides & the boys dive. We all really enjoyed Epcot and will definitely make a return trip there whenever we decide to go back :). With our fast passes, we rode Mission Space, Spaceship Earth, & Soarin’ as a family…Jordan & I rode the Nemo ride & saw Turtle Talk with Crush while the boys were doing their diving thing. {A quick note about the DiveQuest thing, the hubby & son seemed to enjoy it and while we did get the chance to see them get into the tank & swim around for a bit, Jordan was impatient to get to Japan for the gift store & we missed when the divers swam up to the windows to wave to their families.} So, She & I “traveled” a bit around the World Showcase while we were killing time, but we didn’t get to explore much. *We are not fans of the new fast pass system. The way they have changed it meant that while we could get a pass for Soarin’, we could not get one for Test Track in the same day because you can only pick one for your initial 3 and by the time you can get a 4th, all the ones for Test Track are gone.*

I can’t believe it’s been a month since we were in Orlando…we really did enjoy our time down there, even with all the walking & heat & occasional tantrums ;).
