This year's annual "EPCOT drink around the world" got a little more interesting. My trip coincided this time with the EPCOT Food and Wine festival. This means there were not only the usual "countries" to experience, but lots more country "mini-pavillions" with food and drink, including New Zealand (delicious lamb sliders), Chile, Argentina, Italy, Singapore, and lots more.
Another new activity was actually in an old location, the pub in the UK. This time, Jonathan and I did a flight of scotch. I did the single malt:
I flew to Orlando on November 11, this time staying at the Contemporary Resort (the one the monorail runs through from Magic Kingdom!)
Jonathan, Corey and I taking a break from our 'trip around the world:'
Magic Kingdom was decorated for Christmas. Here's Main Street USA:
The real reason for the trip, however, was the Children Miracle's Network Celebration Gala.
Here I am all dressed up outside my room at the Contemporary:
At the gala, I met Travis Stork (from the Doctors), Miss America, and John Schneider (again.)
After the gala, we went back to Magic Kingdom for a ride on Space Mountain -- while still all dressed up. We got lots of looks, as if we were really important folks, and then got put to the front of the line.
