We got up early and got ready for day 2! On this day, we had a scheduled breakfast at Chef Mickey (which also happened to be at our hotel). Chef Mickey was a gigantic buffet with any and everything you could imagine to eat. At a certain time, all the main Mickey Mouse Clubhouse characters came out and went from table to table meeting everyone and taking pictures. We got some great pictures of the kids with the characters!
After breakfast we all loaded onto a bus and headed to Epcot!!! Which, let's be honest, is the least kid friendly park there is!! The adults however loved it! I loved walking through all the countries and seeing defining factors of each place. There were a few rides for the kids, but not much at all. Carter really liked Spaceship Earth (the one inside the 'golf ball' as I call it).
He also did something called Test Track. Test Track is all about cars and since Carter is obsessed with cars, we knew he'd love it. We didn't do much research on it though...and boy were we in for a shock! Carter, Papa, Justin, Aeron and myself all went on this ride. Debbie and Jen watched the other kids while we were doing it. You go inside and you build your own car. You picked out the engine, the body style, the color...everything! Carter thought that was really cool. Then you got into a car and did all the tests that actual cars go through during the testing process. So basically, going really fast on wet surfaces and turning very quickly to dodge things. Carter wanted to be in the front row with Justin and Papa and I sat in the back with Aeron.
This is one of the pictures they took of us during the ride. The reason I say that we were in for a shock is because we had NO clue how fast this ride went. After it goes through all the testing obstacles, it goes outside on a track and goes in circles up to 68mph. I later found out via a trivia test that this ride is the FASTEST ride in all of Disney World. And I let my 4 year old ride it. Yikes. Justin took the Go Pro and videoed Carter during the ride and it was priceless. He almost has no expression because of how fast he's going. Once the car slowed down you see him in the video say "are we done??" and then the video cuts off. But what isn't in the video is the constant asking "are we done?" and then we finally get to a part that says we are done and Carter starts clapping saying "yaaaaaay". Justin asked him if he liked the ride and he said "I don't like it daddy!!!". God love him!
After this ride we just walked around the big lake at the center of Epcot going from country to country. The girls met several princesses while we were there too!
Justin and I in Morocco! We were trying to catch Aladdin and Jasmine but the line was too long!
Next up, day 3 - Magic Kingdom!
