USA Trip 2012 – 13.02.

Today we went to Epcot where we met up with Herbie, Lisa and a friend of hers who was visiting. They all had to leave soon after we met, so we only watched a show of Captain EO and then split up. This gave us time exploring the World Showcase more, where countries have pavilions with little stores, restaurants and rides. First we did the Oh! Canada ride, a strange 360° cinema advertisement for Canada we never heard of before. Then we strolled through the pavilions and had some tasty food at France and Germany. We also love the Japanese pavilion which had a giant store full of Japanese foods and other stuff.

We got lunch at the French pavilion, it was really really good!

After seeing all the pavilions we went to see Soarin’, a very impressive ride simulating flying over California. We also saw Maelstrom in the Norway pavilion, a very.. special ride in a boat that is very hard to explain.

We left around 6 as it looked like rain which was a good move as it started right as we drove off. We just got some subs at the Supermarket and relaxed a bit in the evening. Epcot is a great park!
