Epcot - Disney World - October 5th - 21st

Me at Spaceship Earth

Me on Test Track

Me & Rick (Hubby) in front of Spaceship Earth in September


I had dinner at Teppan Edo one evening at the Japan Pavilion. It was a wonderful dinner. The servers and chef had the perky meter on "high" that evening :-)



This is a group of drummers that play at the Japan pavilion periodically throughout each day. Very good.


This is part of the Morrocan Pavilion

This is Voices of Liberty that sings in the American Pavilion throughout the day. An outstanding accapella group.

A picture from the boat ride in the Mexico pavillion

They have boats that you can take for a scenic, but slow ride across World Showcase Lagoon. You can walk faster, but if your feet are tired, it's nice.

This is part of the Canada area in World Showcase


These are pictures from inside the American Adventure attraction


Snow White. I generally don't wait in line to see characters, but if I can snap a good shot while other folks move out of the way, I will.

This is a group called Mo Rockin at the Morrocan pavilion. They play throughout the day.

Mickey Mouse even in Morroco

The Japan Pavillion

Inside the American Adventure Lobby



This group is called Off Kilter. Good looking guys in skirts playing Celtic Rock music. Need I say more :-)

A shot of the English Tea Garden in the UK Pavilion

Just an interesting prop setup I found near the water.

This is a Indian Dance troup at the Oklahoma display area. This was set up for the Food & Wine Festival

Genie & Alladin


Illuminations - Reflections of Earth. A great night time fireworks and laser show over the lagoon


Character Central at Epcot. A great place to wait in line to get pictures and autographs of characters.

Club Cool. They have FREE samples of Coke products from around the world. Try the Beverly!!

Some Food & Wine Festival Booths set up. This is a great time of year to visit Epcot if you love food. Samples of food, wine & beer from countries all over the world. Each sample runs from $2 - $5 and there are paid and free food & wine seminars throughout each day.




This is an acrobat troupe from China. This kids do some amazing stunts.


Walt Disney loved trains. This is an extensive train setup in the German pavilion with a beautiful German village and countryside.


Spaceship Earth at night. The attraction is currently closed for refurbishment. Can't wait to see what they do with it.

Spaceship Earth during the day


This is Epcot's Dancing Fountain. It is beautiful to watch the water jump to music. It is really spectacular at night, but hard to get pictures.


These guys are the Jammitors. They do a neat show using garbage cans as drums. They perform several times per day.




Innoventions is place where they have displays from various corporations showing off neat products. You can also try a Segway there. There are also paid tours to ride a Segway around Epcot and Ft. Wilderness.




Epcot recently celebrated their 25th anniversary on October 1st.

We bought our Disney World Tickets separately. SO can I buy just a meals package to the EPCOT. I would like to spend my evenings with kids at the EPCOT.

You would have to purchase your meals individually at Epcot
