Vacation Day 3 - Epcot and the Main Street Electrical Light Parade

Orlando, Fl - Today we headed straight for Epcot or as Ryan calls it, Mickey's golf ball.  Once we arrived, we immediately met Stitch and Daisy.  We headed straight onto Spaceship Earth.  This is the ride inside the golf ball. 

After finishing up with the ride, we went to visit Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald and Goofy again.  Ryan got all of the autographs and had a picture with each.

Then we were off to see Nemo and Crush.  We rode through a cool Nemo ride in a clam shell and then sat and had a chat with Crush.  He is totally awesome dude.

By this time, the World Showcase had opened.  There are 11 countries represented and you can get a stamp in each.  The countries include Canada, the UK, Japan, Germany, France, the USA, Mexico, China and Norway.  Ryan, Daddy and Grammy got fish and chips in the UK...Mommy just had chips.  Here we also met Alice (she gave Ryan a big kiss on the cheek and left her lipstick behind), Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, Belle and Marie from "Aristcats".  There were neat street performances and an amazing attention to detail.

After finishing up, we headed back home to clean up and get ready for the Mainstreet Electrical Parade at Magic Kingdom.  We got there 45 minutes early and claimed our spot along Main Street.  The floats passed us by with thousands of lights and cool characters.  We saw all the usual Disney characters and the princess, as well as Peter Pan and Pinnochio.  Pinnochio even teased Ryan about sucking his thumb.

What a day and we are headed out to do it all over again tomorrow.
