One Day in Disney

By: Barbie

Some of you may remember me asking you in a past post which WDW park you would go to if you only had a day. Well, we were on a family cruise and one of the excursions offered was a day at Disney. When I saw that, I told Nick that was the excursion that we were going to go on!

Our bus ride from Port Canaveral lasted about an hour. Our tour guide, Yasmin, was extremely knowledgeable and interesting to listen to about Cape Canaveral as well as Orlando. She really made the trip fly. So which park did we chose?

Epcot. We were so excited. We chose Epcot because it was so close to the Flower and Garden Show and we were hoping to get to see some of the amazing plantings and topiaries. Here is the view from the monorail.

My first stop was Guest Relations, to pick up my Birthday button!

Then, out of nowhere, we heard our names being called out. Our friend's sister and her family from home were down there at the same time and we didn't even know it! We chatted and then parted ways.

Our next stop was to check out pins at the Disney Vacation Club Stand, and to do the "Welcome Home" dance with the ladies there. I wish we had remembered to write their names down, they were so much fun!

After doing our dance, we were off to keep our lunch reservations at Le Cellier with friends, Laurie and Angelo.

Then we took a leisurely stroll around the park to see all the topiaries.

By the time we got all the way around, we were ready for something dessert, so we headed to the Refreshment Port and got a croissant doughnut. It was amazing. We had a hard time sharing the thing! Many crazy pictures ensued.

We stopped by the Land Pavilion to visit a Cast Member friend, Claire.

We had our photos taken with Minnie and Pluto.

Both were shocked when I pushed Nick out of the way so that I could get my picture alone with them! We had a great laugh over that one! Pluto almost pulled his ears out! Minnie blushed!


So here are the final photos of the park before we had to get the monorail back to the TTC. We had a great day, saw many people, ate lots of great food and made more great memories. I wish it would have been longer. We thought we were getting to the bus early, but we were the last ones on! With half an hour to go! Who knew we were the party couple?


  1. Awesome!! :-) Waiting to hear how the "cronut" was.
    By the way, Barbie... in that last pic of you and Nick, you really look like a blonde Audrey Hepburn! Beautiful!!!
