Everyone in my family liked Rivers of Light but I don't think anyone loves it like I do :) I think they all said they don't get it and my Dad kept referring to it as the light and water show :joyfull: I just love the music but I think it will be a bit before I get to see it again :)
Anyway we headed out of the park after (along with everyone else...)

It was a full moon!

Random light!

We ended up taking an Uber home because the bus situation looked bad! My sister said it ended up costing about $30 (so in this case a Minnie Van would have made more sense...but there were none) but we all agreed #worthit. No wait for an Uber and home in way less time!
Then after this it was off to bed!

Next up: Day 3!

How the heck long is that competition? haha :)
So there were actually 2 different competitions. One the weekend of the 5th when we got there (the one my niece was in) and then a new one was coming in when we were leaving on the 11th.

The food from Tiffin's looks amazing I probably won't be able to add it to next years list as I have been told we did too many sit down meals on our last trip and everyone else would rather have more ride time next year not that I don't like ride time but I like TS too :(

The only baby elephant we were able to see on our tour was Luna, because Stella kept hiding behind the trees LOL. It was Luna's picture that was on the pin we were given on the tour.

I was sure that I was following your TR but apparently not?! Looking at your pictures I wish we had gone back to see Rivers of Light when we did the Tiffins dining package in January but it was during that cold weather and not one of us was willing to go out again in the cold once we had gotten back to the hotel (plus I had either run the 5k or the half marathon that morning so I was a bit tired)...

Ohhhhh!!! That makes sense!

In the midst of your report, but have to return to work :( Looking forward to reading more soon! I love your pics - especially the food and lights...
Thanks for reading - booooo work!

Oh is it Luna!? She's so much bigger now (obviously...)

Rivers of Light will be there hopefully for a bit longer so you can see it !

Day 3 April 29, 2018
We got up, ready, ate some breakfast and headed out the door to Epcot!
We got there a little before opening and stopped for a PP picture.
I could not get a good picture of the entrance gardens :confused:

The park officially opened just as we got done with our pictures so we decided to rope drop Soarin' since my Dad had not seen the new version yet :)

We got a text while on Living with the Land that J and N were in the park and they were at Starbucks
DSC_8741.jpg
I went off to buy some Spike's Pollen Hunt maps (instead of Easter egg hunt maps) while J and N finished their breakfast
My Mom took these next two pictures...I especially like the one of the bird eating an egg :joyfull:

I am SO glad that you had another great experience. Ours in December was AWFUL - and we had gone because we had seen SUCH great reviews (a lot from you specifically LOL).
I know...it you your review that made me extra nervous!!!

Small world - we probably saw you guys in the parks! We were there April 30 - May 6.
Oh wow! We probably did pass each other :)

After Spaceship Earth we headed to Club Cool so J could get her beloved Beverly :hungover: I still don't understand why she likes it
DSC_8775.jpg
Then we grabbed our AP magnet ! I didn't take a picture but we got the Minnie Mouse ones :) Oh also, I forgot to mention it was Dapper Day. I just don't really like Dapper Day :confused: I think it looks super cool but you could not pay me to dress up in heels and heavy clothes in the heat. Also, I hate when all the dapper people linger in all the picture lines or just linger everywhere in general :joyfull: I don't know - to each their own I guess!
We skipped our last FP (I think it was The Seas) to head into World Showcase

My Mom took mine so she could take a picture and send it to her co-workers :joyfull:

At Jill's request we made a lunch reservation for Via Napoli a few weeks before our trip so we checked in!
The Cast Member who was seating us asked if I had ever been to Italy before and I said yes. He asked me where and I said Venice and he said ....oh. Just "oh." :joyfull: When we sat down I was like is Venice not in Italy or something?! :joyfull::joyfull: I had a moment of panic that I said the wrong city or something but indeed Venice is in Italy and he must just not like Venice :hilarious:

Randomly we got bread...
DSC_8795.jpg
So, at Tiffins the night before we talked about it and decided on ordering 2 mezzo metro pizzas. Was it all the cocktails that made that decision? Probably. At lunch we tried to convince Jill we did not need two mezzo metros but she insisted we already made up our mind so we ordered two. One half picante (sausage) and half Margherita and the other pepperoni. I have literally no idea why this one picture of pizza is so bad but I will include it just for size reference
DSC_8796.jpg
I considered cropping that kid's face out of this picture but I kind of feel like it makes it that much better :joyfull::joyfull:
DSC_8797.jpg
So, how did we do?
IMG_6636.JPG
Too much...just way too much pizza (although we did eat more than I thought we would to be honest!). P.S. It was delicious as usual!

Next up: out of Epcot
