Before we had the extra trip to Jacksonville tacked on to this vacation, this day was supposed to have been our first day at Disney…now it was day 3! But it was our first in our resort hotel, the Pop Century.
I have lost my notes from this trip, my ds2 has my camera and memory card (lucky bum is on his way to New Orleans with my brother to see Jim Gaffigan) so I’m kinda winging it here…don’t blame me if some of my recollections don’t jive. :) I remember we left our Embassy Suites hotel and checked into the Pop Century. We had to wait a little while for a room to be ready and I want to say we ate lunch in the food court while waiting. Oh, and the boys checked out the arcade. Can anyone say Guitar Hero?
Ds2 and ds3 (aka the guitar playing flamingo lol.) After exploring the hotel a bit we headed back to Epcot.
We went on Journey Into Imagination a cute ride starring Figment. After the ride you can play in the Kodak interactive area.
We split up for some reason and ds4 and I got to spend some quality time together. We went straight for Living Seas. I love the manatee exhibit.
After we gazed at all the wonderful sea life we went to Turtle Talk With Crush, a fun interactive show where Crush from Nemo is displayed on a screen and actually interacts with the audience, answering questions and all. It’s super cute. In the waiting area ds and I took a quiz about sea life on some computers and had fun watching these rays. Sometimes it felt a little odd to separate as a family, but in retrospect I really enjoyed these alone times with ds4. Not so much because we don’t have these times enough at home lol, but because he got to do just what he wanted, got to go at his own pace and I think enjoyed himself more.
