Disney day 2: EPCOT

Monday was EPCOT day.  We started the day at Test Track.  If you haven't been, you basically get to design your own vehicle and then run it through a set of tests, including a 60 mph drive on a racetrack.  Daddy went to Soarin' to get fast passes, so the kids and I went through the line without Daddy.  He would catch back up in a few minutes.

This was the car the kids designed. Pretty awesome!
We were waiting in line to test drive our car, when they announced the ride was having trouble.  A few minutes later I got a text from Daddy saying he was stuck on the ride!  He had gone through the single rider line and ended up ahead of us.  What are the chances... two days in a row we hit busts on our first activity of the day.  After about 30 minutes Daddy got off and we all got a fast pass good any time for the next 7 days.

We met Chip and Dale
We rode Soarin - awesome ride.  Also went to the Crush comedy hour and aquariums.

First Mickey sighting!

They were excited to see Pluto. Even though they've barely seen him on TV :)

Minnie! She was tiny. And she was flirting with Daddy. :)

Waiting for the boat to take us to lunch in Italy... awesome lunch.

Thank you Disney for censoring this statue

We saw Goofy on the way out of the park... they REALLY wanted to see Goofy!

We made an early exit this day. Hailey was really tired. We ended up getting free passes to come back later in the week so we could ride Test Track.

After a rest at the hotel, we headed to Blizzard Beach, one of the Disney water parks.  We loved it.  The kids rode everything, including a zip line that dumped the kids in the water (Hailey was by far the smallest kid to ride it... they even made a call before her first ride, guess she made them nervous!).  I think our kids could live at a water park if it worked out.  They're in their element every time we go to one.  Overall, Epcot was fun, but we were bigger fans of Magic Kingdom.
