As I sit and enjoy a beverage, which was really $4.50 spent for a 15 minute legal mask break, I thought I’d take a stab at a trip report. Well, a day trip report from a local with a day off who isn’t actually on vacation. Epcot today!
For starters, this is the first time I’ve ever created and used a touring plan. My goodness, is this wonderful! I’m a full hour ahead of schedule, AND I’ve done two extra rides that were on the docket for tonight. 4pm, and I’ve done everything worth doing in Future World. I also did Journey Into Imagination.
Spaceship Earth- pretty cool. I was in and out before official park open. Being in the structure was neat. I wouldn’t wait an hour plus for it, but what better way to start getting in the Epcot mood!
Soarin’- Not only did it exceed my high hopes, it introduced me to the miracle of the Lines app. I got in line on a whim cause I had a window of time. The 60 minute posted wait almost scared me off. But I checked Lines, and it said 21 minutes. So I trusted it, and it didn’t let me down
Journey Into Imagination- Let’s move on
Sunshine Seasons- Great food and mobile ordering couldn’t be easier. I ordered, paid, and scheduled pickup before I left home. Highly recommend doing that
Living With the Land- first half is a total dud. You can’t hear the narration, and the “scenery” is intruded upon by views of people walking around upstairs. But then I got to the greenhouse. Absolutely stunning. I want to go again, just because I want to look closer at the garden. This alone makes it well worth your time
Seas- Ride was meh, aquarium was spectacular. Caught the dolphins at feeding time. I want to take home a manatee
Mission: Space- meh. I did Green. It did nothing for me. Maybe I’ll try Orange next time and like it more
Test Track- Fun! But probably much more so when they make the car building component available again.
And now, my Spidey sense tells me it’ll storm this afternoon. Off to get a poncho in case. Then, I’ll have the whole cooler part of the afternoon and evening to soak in World Showcase with no time pressure. Dinner at 7:30 at Teppan Edo.
Have a great day!
