Disney - day 3

Hello, here is my report for day 3 of our trip to Orlando.

We actually slept until almost 8:30, which is unheard of for us. Today we rode the boat from the Boardwalk to EPCOT. When we got to EPCOT (at the back door), we headed over to the land and seas, stopping first to visit Figment. That is one hokey ride but I kinda like it. Walked right on (the car in front of us was empty). Next we went to ride Living with the Land. Huge line but went quick. Then we got a bit stuck (crawling along actually) but we eventually finished. They had beautiful cotton growing this time. We skipped Soarin' and went to the Seas to ride in a clam shell to look for Nemo. Finally found him so we went and walked around the aquarium a bit. Next stop was back to World Showcase to eat some fish and chips in England. Yummo. After lunch, we walked the rest of the way around the world and headed to Minnie's butterfly garden. Not many butterflies - live ones, that is. Lots of dead ones though. Very sad. Next stop was Ellen's Universe of Energy. I like this ride and it is 45 minutes in the air conditioning - it was rather warm today. Our last ride was Spaceship Earth - another favorite. After that, we went shopping at Mouse Gears. I got a new hoodie Jillian is seriously going to want.

Dinner today was at the California Grill at the Contemporary. This was the most expensive meal so far but yummy. The food was good and we splurged on dessert. I got meat (again) and Adam got fish (again). I think I liked the fillet at Narccoossa's last night better. We got to watch the sunset from the top of the Contemporary with a beautiful view of the Magic Kingdom and the Grand Floridan. After dinner we went out on the observation deck and tried to take pictures of the castle in the dark. Not sure how they came out.

Tomorrow is Sea World (penguins - yeah!).
