30th December 2016 (Day 13)-Epcot

Another day at Epcot today and it was a little on the chill side.  Bit of a shock after so many days of hot, sunny weather!

In the entrance area we got some lovely shots with the PhotoPass photographer of the 3 of us and they dropped in an extra visitors as well.

We had some FastPasses reserved and these were around the entrance area rather than in the World Showcase, although we were going to venture there later in the day.  First one we had was for Soarin’ which was great as ever.

Immediately after that we made use of our second FastPass, for Spaceship Earth.  I’m always slightly reluctant to use a FastPass for this ride as it’s not normally got a very long queue.  But  there aren’t that many FastPass rides in Epcot and I figured I might as well.

We had a little time before our final FastPass, so went to Club Cool to try the different flavours of Coke products.  Rosemary to tried the Beverly and was NOT a fan of it.

Our final FastPass was for Journey into Imagination with Figment, which must say was definitely not worth a FastPass, as straight in regardless.  We’d not done this classic attraction previously.  It’s a bit odd to be honest…

For the rest of the day we had no real plan beyond going into the World Showcase and seeing what happened.  But first we got some snacks from the pop-up Christmas booths.  This was a very good pecan pie.

We met Pluto just at the entrance area of the World Showcase and there was almost no queue to see him.  Pluto is definitely Rosemary’s favourite so it’s always good to meet him.

We also met Princess Jasmine at the meet-and-greet in Morocco.

And that fairy also got into our pictures from the PhotoPass Photographer again while we were there.

While in the France area we got to see Sleeping Beauty and got a great interaction with her.  She was very complimentary about Rosemary’s manners, and said she was going to speak to Mary Poppins about it.

We also met Pere Noel as he was passing.  He seemed a bit grumpy though.  Maybe he was cross that he was still working several days after Christmas!

While making our way around the area we were taking a short break in the quiet area at the International Gateway when some characters came out.  So we got to see King Louie and Pooh.  There weren’t many people there so Rosemary got some really nice interactions with them and got to dance with them as well.

Around this time we were into late afternoon and we were going to head to Disney Springs for dinner that night.  But as we were heading out of the park Daisy Duck was meeting her fans at the front of the park.
