After breakfast at All Star Movies, we headed to Epcot. We got there around 11:30 a.m. We were in no rush. We had some FP+ scheduled and were really having a leisurely day.
We noticed that Spaceship Earth had been down all morning, but when we walked through the gates they must have just opened up. So we hopped right on it with no wait! It was my most unusual ride this time. Our car was very jerky and squeaky, and our little interactive screen on the way down wasn’t working correctly.
From there we needed to head to our Frozen Ever After FP+. We cut through the walkway to the left and got some good views of the scenery being set up for the Flower & Garden Festival.
It really was a perfect day weather wise!
We didn’t eat here, but I snapped a quick picture of the current Quick Service Menu at La Cantina de San Angel. This is located right on the water outside of the Mexico pavilion.
This is the menu for the Mexico table service restaurant that is open for dinner, La Hacienda de San Angel. This is located outside of the Mexico pavilion on the water, and is only open for dinner.
Much to our delight, some of the topiaries were up! In Norway:
After riding Frozen Ever After, we were deciding what we wanted to eat for lunch. We planned to snack around at some quick service places, but we weren’t TOO hungry yet. We had eaten in China last time and I LOVED IT! So that was on my mind…
We took a quick jaunt through the shops here. It’s one of my favorite…maybe because I am part Chinese? Maybe because I love what they offer? I’m not sure!
When exiting out the back, we came across this neat find:
I was trying to ask the man questions, but he was taking pictures and trying to get people to purchase. I didn’t know if it was a temporary thing, part of Flower & Garden that would be starting, etc. Later on, he actually was carrying one through the Lotus Blossom and showing people who were eating there.
Of course I decided I wanted to eat at the Lotus Blossom Cafe. This was the current menu at the time. It had different things on it since we had eaten there in January!
I went with the Beef Noodle Mongolian Style. This has a little kick, so be aware! But it was so good!
After that, we continued through the countries until it was time to head to our Nemo FP+. We took the boat back to the other side.
We had time before our FP+ and wanted to shop, so we went to MouseGear first. This is one of my favorite shops anywhere! (I made a purchase but had absolutely NO room left to take anything back since I only had a backpack. I had it shipped directly to my house for somewhere around $7!)
After our Nemo FP+ we went over to the Land pavilion for a snack. On the way down to Sunshine Seasons, we stopped at this little counter area at the exit of the Living With the Land ride. They had these super cute plants!
If I had space in my luggage, I would have purchased one of these! It’s the perfect gift for my youngest daughter, and so neat to think we have a piece of “the Land” in our home!
We were in the dessert mood, and couldn’t decide between these two things:
A fabulous piece of Carrot Cake.
A Whoopie Pie.
The Carrot Cake was the for sure winner! It was SO GOOD. Moist and amazing frosting. The Whoopie Pie was just ehhhh. I doubt I would get it again.
We had one more FP+ to use here at Journey Into Imagination With Figment. As soon as we used it, Chrissy was on the app securing another FP+. We decided to head over to Hollywood Studios because she was able to get SLINKY DOG DASH!!!
In case you wondered…here are three different flavors of popcorn located near the entrance to Figment! To my knowledge, you can get the refills in your bucket with these flavors.
We stopped at Guest Services on the way to the bus to Hollywood Studios to see if they still had any Figment magnets for Annual Passholders…SCORE! They did. We did have to show our AP and he did look us up online.
