We left Gainesville on Tuesday afternoon and stopped to pick up Gigi and Papack. Then we travelled to Valdosta to spend the night. Wednesday around lunch, this site greeted us!
Then we headed over to the monorail to get to EPCOT. The boys were super excited about our transportation!
We toured the Imagination ride next.
Then we went back to the Land exhibit and rode through it.
The Living Seas were next.
Ever since he was two, Coleman has loved the ocean and its creatures. So this was one of the birthday boy's favorites.
Next, Papack, Brent and I took the two bigger boys to ride Mission Space. Jonathan and Gigi had a much needed popcorn snack.
Then we waited for a bit to ride Test Track. Sadly, we realized there was no way we would make our dinner reservations if we stayed in line, so we had to leave.
Our dinner that night was our first character event with Chip and Dale (my favorites), Mickey and Pluto. The food was great and we all enjoyed sitting down for a while.
You might remember from Andrew's birthday trip that Coleman took full advantage of the soft drink availability on vacation. This trip was no different. At each meal, we had to take his cup and return it after he had eaten a sufficient amount of his dinner. He did drink lots of water too though, so don't worry about his hydration!
That get all over us!
After dinner, we rode Spaceship Earth and then we walked around the lake to see "The American Adventure." Everyone enjoyed it, especially our history buff, Andrew. We even got to see the fireworks on our way out of the park. A quick monorail ride back home and we were sure to have Sweet Dreams at the Polynesian!
The next day was our first day of Magic Kingdom!
