Day 4 - Epcot

Day 4 was spent at Epcot. Epcot is probably one of my favorite parks. It is probably more "adult" than any other park. Lots of history and education. My nerdy self likes that!

On a side note, we had an arcade at our hotel. Abby thought it was the best thing ever.

Stu and Abby played this game where you hit moving objects with balls at least 50 times. 

Thursday morning, we set out for Epcot. We had breakfast scheduled at a restaurant in Norway (Akershus) with the Princesses. 

As soon as we walked in, Abby got to meet Belle. This picture is horrible, but they actually give you a 8x10 and 3 5x7 pictures as part of the breakfast. A much better picture that they take. We have already framed it.

While we were eating, they started up a little parade where all the kids walked around with the Princesses. You can't see it at all in this picture, but Aurora took Abby's hand in the parade. 

I literally bawled my eyes out. It was embarrassing. 

But seeing the joy in Abby's face to get to hold the hand of a Princess was so overwhelming. I might shed a tear writing about it! 

Then the Princesses made the rounds to talk to the kiddos. Aurora remembered Abby's name (and it was on her shirt) and thanked her for helping her walk. Cue more tears (from me). 

Such a beautiful picture. 

Meeting Cinderella. 

*She also met Ariel (her favorite), but I video'd it. Let's just say, Abby has watched it 10 times. And it cracks me up because the only thing I say is "Fishies" for no apparent reason. 

Blurry, but trying on a sombrero. 

They had Mickey, Pluto and Minnie set up to take pictures with. For some reason, the only one that I took a picture of was Mickey. I think if you follow me on FB, you have seen the others. 

After a super cute show with the Turtle from Finding Nemo (and it was super interactive), we checked out all the other fish. Abby loved this tank of Nemo fish.

Wearing 3D glasses for a show. Stu is super excited. Abby is intense. 

She loved getting her picture taken in stuff like this. I think this was Mexico.

We had an amazing dinner in Italy that night. Stu (who is soooo picky) loved it. Mine was delicious as well and I ended it with this yummy chocolate gelatio. 

My only regret of our trip was missing Illuminations, the fireworks shows,  at Epcot. But honestly, we were so exhausted and just wanted to go home.

Plus, I had a big spectacular fireworks plan for Saturday night :).
