Day 11- Disney Character Outlet & Epcot

It is a beautiful, cool, cloudy day and the Disney Character Warehouse Outlet is in sight!  I love going to the outlet.  There are so many fun items and it is always changing!  The clothing, beach towels, figurines, trading pins, shoes, jewelry, and other items are a very good value.  There are two locations in Orlando- one at the Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue (our usual stop!), only a few minutes from Downtown Disney, and another at the Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive.

Now, off to Epcot to enjoy the beautiful day.  Epcot is busy and the tram is quick to pick us up and take us to the gate.  I enjoy the faces of those who are arriving for the first time.  The excitement and anticipation is in the air, the music is lively, and everyone is trying to get a picture as they enter Epcot.

As we get into the park, we head for the Terra booth for watermelon juice.  Patagonia has two gluten free dishes, the roasted Verlasso Salmon with Quinoa, and the Grilled Beef Skewer with Chimichurri sauce and Boniato puree.  They were both delicious.  Somehow the clouds have moved; it is 87 degrees today, and of course the humidity is high!  Shade!  Lunch is pretty busy and the crowds are pretty thick today.  Australia was next and we enjoyed the Lamb Chop with Mint Pesto and Potato Crunchies!

Mexico has a Rib-Eye Taco that is really tasty.  Now we are off to ride the Gran Fiesta Tour ride.  There you will find The Three Caballeros leading the way through the ride!  It is really fun and the line moves so fast!  I love this ride!  Located inside the Mexico pyramid, which is a good place to explore, the ride is nice and cool.  After the ride, as we leave Mexico, we see the mariachi band!  They asked where I was from, and I replied, “Texas! I saw the Mariachis when we traveled and visited Mexico City when I was 12!”  Pretty funny, that was 44 years ago.

Now off to Farm Fresh for Griddled Yard Bird with Braised Greens and House Made Habanero Sauce.  Tasty!

It was a fun day!
