Jill has been telling everyone that I am the one that wanted to come to Walt Disney World. And it’s essentially true. I haven’t been here since I was 12 and only went to the Magic Kingdom at that time. The time before that I got lost at Epcot when I was 3. So it’s been awhile.
We stayed at the economical “All Star Music” Resort on Disney property. Our first day we went to visit the Magic Kingdom where I tried to attain “Galactic Hero” status by scoring 999,999 points on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. Unfortunately, my shooting prowess was no match for the Evil Emperor Zurg, where he stopped me cold with 752,300 points that promoted me from Space Cadet to the second highest rank of “Cosmic Commando. The Hall of Presidents in Liberty Square was probably my favorite attraction at the Magic Kingdom behind Buzz Lightyear…
Another honorable mention was Epcot, where I didn’t manage to get lost this time. Epcot has the “World Showcase” where they have areas set up for many countries (no, this isn’t our trip around the world). They had an exhibit where you could try all of the Coke products from around the world. The drink “Beverly” from Italy is by far the most disgusting drink in the world -it tops straight hard liquor. Jill tried it in Atlanta at the Coca-Cola museum and found how disgusting it was. And low and behold, Epcot had the same exhibit, and Jill thought for some reason that Beverly was going to somehow taste better. Enjoy the video below.
In any event, we are headed to the Miami area, the Florida Keys, and the Everglades. On Friday night, we head to our first “real” destination, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
