Siblings Take On Epcot
We found Danielle and then headed to the beach club bus stop. Since you can’t get a bus to the parks from Disney Springs we decided to go to the Beach club and walk to the international gateway. Of course we watched the bus pull away from the bus stop so we had to wait some time for the next one to come. This was quite the bus ride, the beach club was the last stop of four. We had to make stops and Swan, Dolphin, Yacht, then beach. Honestly do not recommend.
When we finally got to the beach club we enjoyed the last of the AC before we made the trek to Epcot. But first what do you know we found a bench…
The beach club is a resort thats still on my list of places to stay. So here I was leading the pack pretending like I knew where I was going. My goal was to stay in the AC as along as possible and try to find the closest door to let us out near the international gateway. One thing I noticed was the strange courtyard areas that make very weird hallways.
We headed kept heading left and came to a dead end. The door wasn’t a disney show look kind of door. But it also didn’t say CMs only. We took our chances and went through said door, this lead us to a stairwell and a door that led outside. Somehow I managed to fake my way pretty good because this doorway led us right where we wanted to be.
The walk to epcot was not a hot sweaty mess at all thanks to the clouds. Danielle has never been through the international gateway which confuses me but ok. New things are cool to try. The open area we all loved was now a hot mess thanks to the gondolas and planters everywhere!
But still no lines for bag check so I will take it.
First stop, Kiss’s choice, the pub. Why not drink away our problems sounds good to me.
We took our drinks to go and headed to future world. We had time to waste before Test Track so I suggested browsing Mouse gears. Danielle told me it was closed and I was pretty sure she was wrong. But then Kiss agreed with her so I for some reason believed them. I shouldn't have because I was right and it was still open.
I successfully left Mouse Gears without spending any money and we were off to customize a car. Our car was honestly trash…however it was high in efficiency and thats what Disney cares about. So while it was not the nicest car to look at we were scoring very well.
After test track Danielle went off to find a bathroom leaving Kiss and I to head over to the soon to be Guardians ride. Super excited for this one since its one of the only Marvel movies I actually watch and know.
When this ride does open, do not worry they have benches out front when you get tired from all that waiting. They aren’t the comfiest but the match the stone walls around it very nicely.
And while you wait for the attraction to open, heres a cute wall to take pictures with
We met back up with Danielle and we were off to Mars. Ready for launch
All I ever want to be is the one that puts everyone to sleep, like a deep slumber in space sounds like my kind of night. However I once again listened to my siblings and the job was then given to our knew friend who joined our mission. Welcome along sir, you have no clue what you just got yourself into.
It was a long trip to Mars and when we came back to Earth the sky decided to open and my siblings aren't about bringing ponchos to the parks. So love that. We hung out in the store questioning who buys the expensive rocks they have and 10 seconds later a kid came running over asking his mom if he could get one. So I guess that answered our question.
The rain didn’t last long, so we were back out and headed to the other side of future world. We decided to go on Nemo since its never a wait.
They made us squish into a clamshell and that was not fun…
After Nemo we walked around and saw our snorkel instructor from last summer out meeting guests. Wow love him. Loved him even more when he had to get Erin because she was swimming around when the group was suppose to come back.
Speaking of snorkeling Danielle was saying how her friend wanted to do that tour until she saw the price of it. Honestly the price was worth it, I loved the tour and we talked about doing it again this trip but decided not too.
The last thing we needed to accomplish at Epcot today was the land. Mostly because they just switched over the video a few days prior and everyone was talking about it on social media, what a nice crisp quality it is.
After we headed back to the resort around 5ish where Erin was lounging around after her tiring performance this afternoon.
