The next week we stayed in "The Old Key West" Resort at Walt Disney World. David, our son helped with all the arrangements which made life a lot easier for us. We were given bracelets by Disney which allowed us entry to the Theme Parks, the meal plan, fast pass and got us into our room.
It was a real asset to us and saved us a lot of time.
Our first visit was to Epcot (Environmental Prototype City Of The Future"). To greet you is a huge sphere, which on a night changes color.
If you have been to EPCOT you know that it is made up of different countries to visit: France, Italy, China, Norway, etc.. Canada is a favorite of mine because of the gardens it has surrounding the "village".
Above photos shows the inside of the China exhibition. The most famous thing to come out of China was the terra cotta soldiers besides all the goods Walmart carries!!!!
Our final park visit was to Animal Kingdom. Gary had never been there so it was new to him. I went with my friend, Linda about 8 or 9 years ago. We had a great time except for an incident that happened in Animal Kingdom and this next passage is thanks to her.
I was taking photos of some monkeys and decided to try and get closer to the animals so I stuck my knee through the fence and leaned into the compound. I took my photos, leaned back and tried to remove my knee from the fence. However, it was stuck good and proper. Linda was about 10 feet away taking photos so I called to her for help because the more I tugged on my knee, the more I got stuck. Linda came over and then said "wait a minute" and ran away. I thought "good" she's is going to get help. But no. She wanted to take my photo before helping me. So, there I was whilst Linda clicked away, crying in pain (more like frustration). She remained my friend despite this incident and we are still good friends today. The next photo is for you, Linda.
The next blog will follow and give details of our boat trip with our good friends Trudie and Jim.
