Hollywood Studios

 We really love this park. I have to say the restaurants there are the best theme restaurants we have ever been to anywhere. SO fun and the food is simply amazing also. The day started off cold and damp and windy and just got worse from there. Who knew we were going to need winter gear in Florida. Just two days before it was in the 80's!!
 We got there just in time for our lunch reservations at the SciFi Drive In Theater. It's awesome. You sit in these miniature cars and car car hop comes on roller skates and takes your order. Then you sit back and watch SciFi clips you remember from the good old days while you wait for your food and then eat it.

 We love that place and we weren't in any hurry to get back out there in the cold.
 While we were walking around we saw the coach they used in the new movie Cinderella. Great movie by the way but it hadn't even been released yet. The coach was amazing but the line to get your picture taken there was nuts so we moved on.

We're getting into this selfie thing!
 I have always wanted to go to Lights, Motors, Action but we could never get the timing to work out right so this time we managed it. It was such a great show. We just loved it and went twice.

 Saw some famous cars!

 After a cold afternoon of shows including Indiana Jones we headed to our dinner reservation at our other favorite theme restaurant.
This is the front door where you come in and are told to have a seat in the living room to wait.

 The living room is just the way we all remember it from the 50's and 60's!!

 Everyone sits at their own kitchenette to eat
Mom's kitchen

Dad's dessert (that's the name of it) looks like dad made it.
Another super fun day but we left before the place closed which is different for us. We were cold and tired and we knew we would be back someday!

Our Trip Around the World

The day had finally come for us to eat ourselves around the world. We started off in Epcot with a couple of rides Mendis hadn't been able to go on in 2009 when we were last here.
 We went on the Mission Space adventure which is fun.
 I took the easier version and he did the ramped up one.
We did Test Track together. That is pretty fun too and that car really gets going. The lines were crazy busy though.

 Then we headed over the magical bridge into the World Showcase which is hands down our favorite.
 We started off with fish & chips for lunch from England. You just have to do that. Basically tradition now! A couple birds joined us and wanted our lunch pretty bad. So did the squirrels.
 We did some shopping through Canada and England and then got dessert in Paris.
 Those French pastries are also a tradition. Actually our favorite tradition I would say.
 Then we walked and shopped through Morocco and Italy.
 You just have to get chocolates in Italy. They are scrumptious.
 In Germany we had to visit the Werther's shop. The smell alone is enough to kill you. The carmel popcorn in hands down the best in the world!
Mexico is always fun

 We saw this amazing stroller. 
Of course the little girl who was riding in it later was wearing her princess gown!
This might have been the first time we went to the America pavilion and watched the show and everything.

Amazing drummers in Japan
 We came back to Japan and had dinner.
 Luckily I had made reservations weeks earlier or we would have been out of luck.

Not so hidden mickey in Morocco

 After dinner as we were walking out the lighting in England and Canada was just perfect.

O Canada

A great day!!
