Day 4: Epcot & The Magic Kingdom

On the fourth day of our trip we went to Epcot.  Now, I am not a huge fan of Epcot, and neither is Brian.  I think that if we didn't have kids we might be more inclined to enjoy the different countries (maybe taking advantage of the different foods and beers and wines?), but not so much with the kids.  It probably also has something to do with an ambulance ride that a certain little girl took out of Epcot last year.  In any case, our plan was to spend a couple of hours at Epcot to ride Nemo and Test Track, and then go on a search for Mulan and Aladdin and Jasmine and leave (and we were also hoping for well behaved children)!

Wyatt wanted to pose with the Finding Nemo characters.
While we were walking through the park a "grandma" offered Reese this balloon flower, and she loved it.  She thinks all women over "a certain age" are called grandma.  She cracks me up!
Wyatt in front of Pluto's dog house!
We found out when we got to the "France" section that Belle and Beast are both there for character greetings.  Wyatt was definitely excited to see the Beast! Reese was a little apprehensive (notice that she isn't standing very close to Belle)!
Me and my little guy in Germany!  We were kind of bummed out because we saw Snow White, but didn't go see her because we figured she would be at the Magic Kingdom.  No such luck - we walked right by her, and she's the only princess Reese didn't get to visit.
Before we left Epcot for the day Wyatt (and Brian) insisted on getting his a picture with the Monorail.

We left Epcot and decided to take the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom.  We didn't have a ton of time, but we figured that since the kids were in great moods we had a little time to make up!

We visited with Belle, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, and then stopped to see Micky and Minnie.  Reese wasn't very happy because she really wanted to visit with Minnie and she was with Wyatt.  Who gets sad about seeing Mickey Mouse?!?!  My Reesie!
We were also able to see a parade - this float was a highlight!  Woody and Jessie are two of our absolute favorites - in case you couldn't tell by Reese's Halloween costume!

The kids went to sleep absolutely exhausted, which was a good thing.  It's not too easy to get them to sleep in a hotel!
