Even though Disney was great, we are so happy to be back. Space Mountain wasn’t the only roller coaster we road, this entire trip was a roller coaster full of ups and downs. The last time I blogged I was sitting at a Dunkin Donuts in New York at eight am on a Sunday morning while the car was getting fixed.
We got back on the road around ten am and headed towards Raleigh, NC. We wanted to get back before the Superbowl started.
Anothony’s mom packed us road trip snacks becuase she’s the most adorable and sweetest lady on the planet.
We made it twenty minutes before Superbowl started.
We went down to have dinner and watch the Super Bowl. I was so over all of the driving and my body was feeling it. Waking up at three am every night was getting old. My appetite was nowhere (which is rare) and so I just relaxed with a drink.
Weto cancel our Superbowl party because of the circumstances, but will be throwing a big one next year to make up for it.
I woke up at 3am to pack all my bags for our flight to Disney. Coffee at 3am isn’t the same. I haven’t been able to finish a cup of coffee in over a week. My entire body is out of whack.
The shuttle took us to the airport at 5am.
I tried coffee again, but couldn’t get it down.
I managed to have an apple cinnamon & pecan Kind bar. I love these things.
Our plane took off at 7am. After I got off the flight, I felt so nauseous. I figured it was just the lack of sleep, the motion of the plane (horrible turbulence) or the aroma of the onion breakfast sandwich the lady behind me decided to eat. I decided to brush it off.
We got to the hotel at ten am. We decided to stay at the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs resort. It’s a resort very close to all the parks and they provide the shuttles. They were super friendly and so helpful. The pool area looked like so much fun because it had tennis courts, basketball, sand volleyball, pools, a hot tub and a bar. I wish it was warmer!
We loved that the hotel was inexpensive. When I go on a vacation that I know I’ll be spending zero time at the hotel, I make sure it’s cheap. Otherwise I feel guilty about leaving the hotel. If it’s a resort that I don’t plan on leaving, then I’ll budge for a nicer one!
We decided to do Epcot. My friend wanted to do “Beers All Around The World.”
We took a walk all around the water visiting all the different countries. I wish we could have had the chance to have Poutine! It’s my favorite.
England had the cutest pubs. They also had working phone booths! I heard someone with an English accent say “Our pubs are not as cute or quaint.” I know that Epcot loves to play it up, but it’s still fun!
I liked the German beer the best. It was so hoppy and citrus-y.
We hadn’t had breakfast yet, but I still wasn’t hungry.
I was sad it was so cold and windy. I brought some ginger lemon tea packets, so the kind staff at the Joffrey’s stand gave me a cup of hot water to make tea!
I was a hot mess on Monday.
The United States Pavilion was fun and filled with singing groups!
The Japan Pavilion was really cool, especially the gift shops. We watched the Matsuriza troupe of Taiko drummers perform at the five story pagoda. They were awesome!
Around noon, I worked up an appetite, so we decided to have lunch at Via Napoli in Italy (Epcot Italy that is). It was such a gorgeous restaurant with giant architectural ceilings and artwork.
I ordered a individual pepperoni pizza to split with my friend. I love brick oven pizza and this one didn’t disappoint.
The salad was really bad though haha. I’m officially not a fan of cantaloupe on my salad with romaine lettuce and orange citrus dressing. Maybe if it were arugula…At least the pizza made up for it.
We made our way through the rest of the countries and explored all the shops.
I got excited when I saw Frozen 🙂
I kept fighting off the nausea and I’m not sure the pizza helped any. I just wanted to make the best of the day at Epcot.
I knew I was sick when my friend ordered my all time favorite and I couldn’t have one bite…
I made another tea and then we headed towards the theater!
I warmed up and relaxed while watching the Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival.
I got sicker and sicker as the day went on, so we only made it to 1:30 before we had to leave. I was so sick. We headed back to the hotel and I went to sleep until 6pm. When I woke up, I couldn’t even stand. My friend headed down to the lobby to grab me pepto bismol (which is hate), ginger ale, tylenol, and a thermometer because I was burning up. About an hour later, I finally got “sick sick” and then felt so much better after if you know what I mean! I decided to continue to sip on water for the rest of the night and watch The Bachelor. I wanted to feel better for Disney World’s Magic Kingdom the next day! I’m not sure if it was food poisoning or a 24 hour bug.
I feel like we missed out at Epcot, so I hope we can go back again and redo it!
I’ll be blogging all about the Magic Kingdom tomorrow 🙂
