We entered the gates of Epcot before the park's opening, as a part of the privileged group of individuals partaking in a royal breakfast with princesses in Norway. Oh, no, I am not ashamed to say that I attended a character breakfast with Disney heroines! First of all, entering the park early allows for excellent photo opportunities without masses of people obstructing the view of the scenic grounds. Second of all, (last being the best of course) princesses rock!
We walked to future world after breakfast to ride Soarin,' Test Track, and Mission Space. Then, rode Disney transportation to the Grand Floridian resort, Disney's flagship resort, for afternoon tea at the Garden View Tea Room. We ordered a traditional tea serving with Earl Gray and Orange tea, little specialized sandwiches and three little pastries, mini eclairs, chocolate covered strawberries and tiramisu. The tea room overlooked a garden, thus the name, Garden View Tea Room, and the natural light infiltrated the room through half moon windows. We walked through the lobby, feasting our eyes on the Victorian charm of the massive white chandeliers and elegant furnishings. From there, we went back to the hotel for a nap before our night in Disney's boardwalk.
At the boardwalk, we ate at The Flying Fish cafe. At this point, both Philip's and my appetites were really dwindling, as we had already indulged in three rich meals on Disney grounds. Nevertheless, I pleasured my palate with scallops over a creamy risotto. After dinner, we briskly walked across the boardwalk, passing a bicycling pianist, to the rear entry of Epcot. Here we toured the Mexican and Norwegian pavilions, then we rode a few more rides in future world before calling it a night.
