The Honeymoon, Day 3

20 Aug

If you’ve missed any of my other Honeymoon re-caps you can find day 1 here, & day 2 here!


For our second full day, we decided to head to Epcot.

Epcot Yes, I actually took this picture; I was pretty pleased with myself. 😉

The weather had improved since the previous day, & instead of getting rained on, we got hit with intense humidity. We both decided we’d take that over the constant rain though! 🙂

We spent our morning hitting up a few rides, & taking a walk around the World Showcase.

Looking in to the World Showcase Eventually, we worked up an appetite for lunch. I went with a turkey sandwich on some delicious, toasty, bread, which came with potato salad. I ate most of the sandwich & only a little of the salad. The salad was good, but very oily.

SAMSUNG            That little piece of heaven in the corner was some sort of s’mores dessert; it was awesome!

We spent the majority of our afternoon waiting in line for a relatively-new ride called Soarin’. From the Disney website

“Soarin’ is a multi-sensory attraction for big kids, teens and adults in Epcot theme park that simulates a peaceful hang-gliding flight over the Golden State of California.

Fasten your seat belt on the multi-passenger glider and be lifted 40 feet into the air….

Special cameras on airplanes and helicopters captured many of the shots and the glider moves the same way the aircraft did, so you really feel like you’re flying as you glide over such awe-inspiring vistas and landmarks as :

  • San Francisco
  • Golden Gate Bridge
  • Redwood Creek
  • Napa Valley
  • Monterey
  • Lake Tahoe
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Camarillo
  • Anaza-Borrego Desert State Park
  • San Diego
  • Malibu
  • Los Angeles

Feel the wind in your hair. The air fills with the scent of orange groves, evergreens and the sea breeze. Your feet dangle free. Dip down so close to the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, you think your toes will get wet. Then return to the sky and continue on Soarin’ to a fantastic finale where fireworks burst into sensational colors around you.”

It was pretty cool, but it couldn’t have lasted more than 4 minutes & we waited for over an hour. Oh well, I guess that’s what we expected when we decided to go to Disney during the summer. 😉

Soon enough, dinner time rolled around & we headed to our reservation at the Coral Reef Restaurant. We were lucky enough to be seated right by the “tank” & we got to watch all sorts of aquatic life as we dined.

For my entree, I ordered the lobster ravioli, which was pretty tasty!

Lobster ravioliDessert was a molten chocolate cake that came with raspberry sorbet.

Dessert  The waiter made sure to include special pieces of chocolate that said “Congratulations” on them! How fun!

Congratulations Another day was in the books, & it was time for us to head back to our hotel. Before turning in for the evening, we snapped a few pictures when we got back to the resort!

    I feel pretty fortunate that my parents took us on so many food trips. I may not have appreciated them at the time, but I look back bow and realize I was one lucky kid :-). I would have to say that the best trip I was on was to Las Vegas in 2000. It was just me my Mom and Dad. We had a great time saw 4 shows one of which was Siegfried and Roy. Although it wasn’t my favorite show I am still thankful I got to see them before Roy was injured. I love to travel but it’s a little tougher now that we have a family. I am looking forward to making vacation memories with my kids :-).

    How fun!!! Seeing all of those things in only 4 minutes, I would have thought it would have to take at least 30 minutes to do allll that! Glad it was cool, sounds like you got some quality time in line…. Lunch by the tank would be really cool and that dessert looks GREAT!! 🙂
    -The husband and my trip to California has been the best…. so far 😉

      Yes, it was a very quick trip through Cali! 😉

      Oh, I bet! Love reading about the trip!

    It looks like you guys had such an amazing experience! And that picture of Epcot is AMAZING!

    I do not think I can choose my favorite vacation. I loved my trip to Napa Valley and Sonoma last summer, but my husband could not go due to Med. School. I think with him it would have been “the best” vacation. I also loved my honeymoon to the Bahamas. It was just beautiful and so much fun!
