Disney World Day 1

What does one say when one needs to describe another world! ;0) Disney World was fabulous ... and for those who know me well, that is not a typical Flo-vocab word, but it in this instance it fits perfectly! We all had so much fun that I'm not sure where to begin. We stayed at the Pop Century Disney Resort, graced by giant bowling pins, yo-yo and radios. Ours was the fifties building, celebrating that era and all it's music. Some of my favorite jukebox titles include: 'My Car's Jake Up and my Heart is Broke down', 'He Had a Class Ring, but No Class', and 'The Double Helix Twist'. My personal favorite: 'My Love Will Last (Like Space Age Plastic)'.

Our first full day was spent at E.P.C.O.T which someone said means, "Everyone Plays and Comes Out Tired". For the life of me, I can't recall what Walt Disney intended it to say after hear that! The flowers were gorgeous ..

Isaac experienced some of his first rides. One took us on a tour of the latest in agricultural development. What you see in the picture behind me is a tomato tree, they also grew veggies without soil and had larger fruit and vegetables than I had ever seen.

Of course we went on a Clam Shell ride to help find Nemo and then had a lavish lunch at a French Restaurant. The "table of three for the Mon-tea-earth" included French Onion Soup with Gruyere cheese, Lorraine Quiche and Creme Brulee as well as visit from Rene the Rat - our chef! We were stuffed!

A nap was in order for all and once we were rejuvenated, we returned to see a Mayan Temple and visit China.

Our evening was spent at a Moroccan Restaurant where we were entertained by a belly dancer and invited to join in and dance. We shimmied and shook in our own special way and enjoyed a unique meal with meat filled pastries with cinnamon and orange blossom, Couscous with braised beef, almonds, raisins and finally baklava. Hmmmmmm... We caught the tail end of fireworks show, 'Illuminations' as we slowly waddled our way to the exit. Isaac wasn't too sure what to make of the brilliant colored 'boom-booms' that filled the night sky and clung to Papa all the way back to our hotel.

The sleep of the deadwas the end result of it all. It was an EPCOT day for all of us!
