Coming in we took the compulsory picture of the big ball, although we didn’t go on the ride inside it.
Instead we headed over to “The Seas” area where we went on the Nemo and Friends ride.
This ride takes you through the story of Finding Nemo (although very compressed) and out into the aquarium. There are some very large tanks which are full of fish and even some dolphins as well as smaller tanks with tropical fish and some manatees.
Couldn’t resist a picture with Bruce the shark before we went and did the Turtle Talk with Crush bit. This is an interactive session with a computer generated Crush which is fun as the kids get a chance to ask questions to Crush.
As we were leaving this section we went into the Mickey and Pals section where we got to meet Mickey, Goofy and Minnie. Rosemary seemed to be getting the hang of these character meet and greets now and wasn’t in the slightest worried about them, and actually keen to meet the characters.
As we were nearly halfway through the day we decided to head into the World Showcase and start visiting the various countries. We’d heard that you can get a passport which is stamped in each country and found them in the giftshop at the entrance to the area. Finding the stand to get them stamped was sometimes a bit tricky but we did get them all done.
Before we got very far we stopped in Norway for a snack. I got some of mine at least.
In Germany we got to meet Snow White. This was Rosemary’s first Princess encounter.
I can’t remember if this was in China or Japan now…
While the Morocco area has some amazing tiled courtyards.
There were some great views from the lake.
In France we got to meet Belle.
And we had an ice cream before meeting Princess Aurora.
We stayed on for the Illuminations show on the lake, which was very good.
One thing was that the park was relatively undecorated for Christmas. The majority of the decorations were around the central area where the fountains are. Still very pretty.
So a great trip but a massive park that really needs more time to explore properly.
