Day 8 – the day of Mickey and World travels

It’s a slightly slower start this morning as we head over to Epcot for breakfast at the Garden Grill. It’s odd entering the park from the front as we are so used to staying at the Beach Club and walking in via the International Gateway.

Breakfast is served family style…and it’s delicious!

I’ve missed a photo of the breakfast skillet which contains scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and Mickey waffles…

We also meet a few friends…

We all love the POG juice! Pomegranate, orange and guava juice! We all need this in our lives! We’ve (I’ve) timed this morning to perfection as we walk out of breakfast straight downstairs to our fastpass time for Soarin’. It’s the new version – Soarin’ around the World! It’s great but sadly we aren’t impressed with the addition of CGI animals…the beauty speaks for itself people!
Next up it’s time to meet Meet Mickey and Pals…

Both Mickey and Minnie really loved Natty’s ‘ears’ hair style today!

We pop over and ride Journey into the Imagination with Figment before heading into the DVC member lounge for a bit of air conditioning, drinks and a chill. It’s lovely up here!

Once cool and refreshed we take a trip around the World Showcase…it’s now 95 degrees so we hop from shade to store to shade as best as we can!

We set off anti clockwise which really freaks us out…we begin in Canada, eh?

It’s so pretty!

Make a quick stop in the UK for some great Mary Poppins and Peter Pan merchandise, then it’s France…don’t know why I love it here so much!

Then it’s on through Morocco, to Japan…

Via the USA to Italy where there might be gelato cookie sandwiches…

Then a brief stop in Germany and China before Natty is mistaken for a troll by those Vikings in Norway…

A quick cook inside the Mexico pavilion is followed by a relatively speedy stroll through Future World as we have dinner reservations at Boma this evening. There is, however, enough time for a few photos on the way out! (We wondered what the silly pose was for!)

After a quick gussy we meet the Hendry-Blums in the lobby and head down to Boma. It’s a great African restaurant which allows you to be as adventurous as you feel…we all love it here! The only downside tonight is that our friend Paul is not working!

The boys recreate their classic matching top photos but Will didn’t get the message about Ethiopian football shirts..

We all enjoy the food, especially baby R who devours 4 chicken tenders, cherry tomatoes, beans and finishes it off with several pieces of the delicious Boma specialty- the Zebra Dome!

I can also recommend the African Rum Runner – a combination of Pink Pigeon Rum, Blackberry Brandy, and Banana Liqueur with Orange and Pineapple Juices!

Good night!
