Disney World Recap 2: EPCOT

Disney World Recap Part 2: EPCOT
This trip was a combined present for my birthday, Dave's birthday, Valentine's Day and our Anniversary. Jan 5, Jan 26, Feb 14 and March 24 are all so close together it's difficult to keep coming up with presents...especially right after Christmas. So each year, we usually do a weekend away somewhere. Last year, we had plans to do a bigger trip for our 5 yr anniversary but ended up doing a week at Disney for dance.
This time around, last October actually, we started throwing out ideas for where to go...and both of us (yes even DAVE!) wanted a few days to ourselves at our favorite place on Earth: Disney World.

That all  being said! We spent a lot of time doing "new together" things at DHS, EPCOT and MK. Today I want to talk about EPCOT...
We went to EPCOT twice. One night late at night and one day afternoon to evening.
We ate at Le Chefs de France. It was delightful! The food was delicious, the service very attentive and we had a table right by the window. If I was thinking, I would have stretched our meal out and kept that table for Illuminations...
which, by the way, I have yet to see.
I'm pledging to see it on our dance trip next June!" target="_blank">

We spent a good bit of time wandering around World Showcase. We love it in WC. There's always something new to discover, a food or drink to try, entertainment to's delightful." target="_blank">

EPCOT at night
I'm missing a whole bunch of pictures that got lost when our computer crashed in February...somewhere I had tons of pictures of the inside of Mexico, China, Japan, France and England areas...sad.
Guess I'll just have to retake them...June 2014!" target="_blank">

New Test Track was awesome. The interactive stuff in the queue was really interesting. Dave, being a fan of cars, especially loved all the new stuff to look at." target="_blank">

My car...which BEAT DAVES!!! Thankyouverymuch
Summary: We love EPCOT. When it's just the two of us, we gravitate towards World Showcase, after Fast Passing Soarin' of course. We also really enjoyed the improvements to Test Track. Much more interactive and neat now. We had lunch at Sunshine Seasons and were pleasantly surprised at portion size, value and taste. The much fabled Strawberry Shortcake delivered. yummmm!
Next up...DHS and the Boardwalk.
