Yay, we are headed for Epcot! When going to Disney, remember, no matter what day it is, there is a possible rain shower waiting to fall! Be prepared with rain gear, we choose shoes that can get wet, umbrellas or ponchos. It is just a way of life here, it rains, it usually clears off and it is sunny again. It is just the way Florida is.
We headed for Epcot in a full-blown gully washer. Texas way of saying it was a monsoon! I was told that it rains every day in the summer, but now? It is hurricane season, so it rains a lot! We parked in the first parking lot and walked right up to the bag check and right into Epcot. The rain is still heavy as we get close to the Festival Center.
We looked around at the Ghirardelli Chocolate area while waiting for class to start. They had the most amazing displays (made of chocolate!) that different bakeries around Disney made. It was fascinating! We had our class and headed out, it was once again raining cats and dogs!
No problem for me, we just headed over to Mexico for dinner. We decided to go to San Angel Inn for dinner and were seated by the water. The food was fabulous! Oh, it is nice to have a light sweater for inside dining, it can get a little chilly. I loved watching the Gran Fiesta Tour boats glide through the water. The kids and I got to meet an Imagineer in July for Tooti’s birthday lunch and she called us the “The Three Caballeros”. If you get to ride the Gran Fiesta Tour ride, be sure to look for Donald Duck, Panchito and Jose’ Cariocas!
We decided to get dessert to go so we could see the fireworks! Even with the light rain, the fireworks were beautiful.
