After Space Ship Earth, which uses some clever technology at the end to make the ride a personal experience by inserting the rider's faces into a futuristic cartoon, we needed food. We'd rushed to catch the shuttle from our hotel, Hilton Garden Inn at Sea World. The shuttle departs and returns twice a day for Disney and the driver notes how many are in your party and what time you want to return to the hotel. The ride takes about 20 minutes or so and lands you closer to the entrance than if you drove and parked yourself. At the end of the day the fireworks start precisely at 9:00 and the last shuttle leaves at 9:45 giving you plenty of time to make your way out of the park and across the parking lot. Like most things in this area, they have it down to a science taking much of the worry and trouble out of the experience.
Okay, so today I'm having a little fun with the real vs. the Epcot versions of travel destinations...
|Mr. Snarky in the real thing.|
|Epcot Venice, St. Mark's Square|
Wasn't that the goal all along?
|In the real thing, with a snarky sign for my daughter|
|Epcot does Mexican|
|Loving me some Chichen Itza!|
