So on Wednesday we took a break from Universal and headed to Epcot. I was completely surprised at the difference in Epcot from Universal. My boyfriend kept trying to tell me that Epcot is an experience not really an amusement park. It is really interesting how they have the park setup. You have one half the park that is set up like a learning environment about things like the land and the sea. The other half of the park is setup in countries. The country part was our favorite and is honestly where we spent the majority of our day. We spent the morning wandering from country to country looking at cool shops and all sorts of neat architecture that has been recreated from the originals. We started the day in Mexico and then proceeded to Norway, China, Africa, Germany, Italy, United States, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom, and finally Canada. The first time through we spent a lot of time in most of the countries except Canada because we were trying to make it to the Soaring Ride in the land area by a certain time.
After Soaring then we rode several cool rides in the Land, Sea, and Spaceship Earth areas of the park.
Since the rides at Epcot are so much gentler than Universal we were actually able to take a lot of fun pictures on the rides. The one all the way to the right is in Spaceship Earth during the part where it is all stars around us.
After those rides we headed back to the countries where I was on a mission to find small flags from each country for my classroom this year. As a future geography teacher I thought it would be cool to have the flags to add to my classroom. We had some wonderful food and alcohol thought the day. It was a relaxing day compared to the one before.
