Little Bits of Epcot

18 Jun

Since I’m at Epcot all day today, I thought I’d post some photos from previous trips. Enjoy!

Fill in the Blanks Monday

13 Jun
 
Since the weather is just about stifling here and warm everywhere else, this week’s theme is vacations!
1.   This weekend I’m going to Epcot! We’re doing the 6th (or 7th) annual Drinking Around the World and celebrating a few birthdays. 
2.  My last vacation was not really a vacation. We went to Disney and stayed in a hotel for the night instead of at Chris’s brother’s place. We go to Disney a lot anyway, but we were out of town for a few days and Chris took some time off work.
3.  My next vacation will be (hopefully) after graduation, if not before and I want to go back to Key West.
4.  My favorite way to relax is a glass of wine and a spankin’ new book. Or a glass of wine and a foot massage. Or a glass of wine and a movie. Or a glass of wine and a spankin’ new book at the beach. (See any patterns here?)
5.  When vacationing one should always take loads of pictures and an extra duffel bag for all the extra goodies one might find. 
6.  When vacationing one should never try so hard to stick to a schedule that all the fun is zapped out. Have a list of the things you want to see and do, prioritize “want to do the most” and “it’s ok if we don’t get to it” and just go from there! 
7.  The best part about a vacation is the first night away and the first night back home. The first night away you can truly let your hair down because “YEAH! You’re on vacation!” and the first night home because you can sleep in your own bed and you know you have clean towels and coffee.

Twining’s Tea Garden at Epcot

6 May

I saved this post for last because tea is my absolute favorite. In England at Epcot they have a tea garden set up across from the Rose and Crown Pub (I had my lunch there… fish and chips). Here are pictures of all the tea!

Pomegranate Delight

Lemon Grass

Earl Grey (my favorite!)

Pure Chamomile (Chris kept saying I needed a cup of this one, I was being a jerk)

China Oolong

Pure White

Mixed Berry

Ta-da! I hope everyone has enjoyed my photos from Epcot! I loved seeing the Flower and Garden festival again, especially since it was daylight this time. If you ever have a chance to go, jump on it! It is gorgeous. Also, the Food and Wine Festival is fun too, pricey but fun. I have a ton and a half more pictures from our many trips to Walt Disney World and maybe someday I’ll do a post for each park.

Flowers and Fairies

5 May

These were also from Epcot yesterday. Flowers, fairies and even a butterfly garden!

These guys were in the butterfly garden

Fairies!

Tinker Bell

I’ll have one more installment in for the Flower and Garden Festival in a little. It will be from the Twining’s tea garden.

Yesterday Chris and I zipped over to Epcot to get a better look at the Flower & Garden Festival. I smelled amazing. 

After being greeted by Buzz and Woody, the first thing you smell walking into the park is Lotso the bears fluffy pink fur!

Prince Charming and Cinderella

Princess Aurora and her Prince

Snow White

Belle and the Beast

Cogsworth and Lumière

Lady and the Tramp

Rapunzel

Bonsai in Japan (This was my favorite shot of the day)

I have a lot more photos, so I’ll break this down into a few posts. Stay tuned for Fairies and Flowers next!

Flower & Garden (take 1)

3 Apr

After the Magic Kingdom we popped over to Epcot. Our plan was to ride Test Track and say hi to Chris’s brother. Well, we didn’t make it on any rides but we did see a lot of the Flower and Garden Festival. We plan on going back again to see everything in the daylight. Here are a few pictures I snapped before the light faded. Warning: The pictures aren’t great.

My favorite part of the evening (besides spending it with Chris) was the Twining’s tea garden. I just wanted to walk through with my tea cup and make my own blend! All of the little plants were planted in tea cups and all of the flowers smelled amazing.
