Disney Day 2-

Tuesday morning we took the boat from the hotel to downtown Disney. It was a nice day to do so. It was hot and so we spent time in the AC. We had lunch at Wolfgang Puck. The food and service was great. I really do recommend the food program.
We tried to pose Tanek between Mickey & Minnie. There wasn't much room for him.
Tanek shopping for baby Pluto. Last time he got a big Pluto and this time he got the baby Pluto.
He sleeps with them every night.

This was one of the new attractions. We didn't go on it, but we did think about it. Maybe next time.

We went to the Lego store. Here you can make cars and race them. It was a lot of fun. They have unbelievable things made from lego's. You can buy kits and then they have all kinds of things you can buy to add to your kits. Lots of fun.

After lunch we went back to the hotel and let Tanek play in the room for awhile and then took him to the big pool. He had a great time with mommy and meme. Nana took pictures. He is a water baby. He didn't mind one bit getting completely under the water and just kept jumping off and having so much fun. The pool water temp was wonderful. Wish ours was this warm.

Catch me meme!

Tanek is standing in front of the spurting fountain. You can see it to the right of him.

Mommy's turn to catch me.

Late afternoon we headed over to Epcot to see the flower's and the fireworks. The fireworks were absolutely awesome. Even better than the one's at the Magic Kingdom. The flowers and landscaping was beautiful. They had all sorts of characters done in flowers and plants. Just beautiful. It is one of my favorite parks to visit. I didn't think I would like it since it is so eduacational and I am more for fun, but it has a lot of neat things to do and see. Below is Snow White and the 7 dwarfs.

Cinderella's carriage!

Beautiful flowers, with Mickey in the background.

Tuesday was probably my favorite day of the 3. We did things we hadn't done before and of course we didn't have to travel there or back home on that day. I just really enjoyed Epcot. We went on the ride in the big golf ball that takes you way back in time to the future. We went on the Nemo ride, and a couple other things that I can't remember right now. Seeing their fireworks was my favorite part of the whole trip. They were just incredible. Stephanie was able to capture a lot of them and hopefully she will find time to post them soon. The landscaping is just beautfiul and I could just walk around and look at it. It was nice going over late afternoon because so much of the crowd was leaving. Yeah! Tomorrow I will post day 3. Hollywood Studio's.

I'm with you - I could just walk those parks and look at the flowers and landscaping - it's so pretty and relaxing. Looks like you had a great time!

the Lego store is the best! i love going there. i always take pictures of the different things they've made with legos, so fun! the hot air balloon ride - where is that? i've never seen it. i'd probably be too chicken to get in it, but it sure looks like fun!
