WDW Vacation ~ Day 7

The original plan for Day 7 was to go to Epcot in the morning and then Animal Kingdom in the evening.  Instead, we stayed at Epcot until after 4 and then swam in the evening again.  At Epcot, we headed to the other side that we'd never even done with the kids and rode Soarin', Living with the Land, Relaunched! Mission Space, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Spaceship Earth, Frozen Ever After, Test Track, and Turtle Talk with Crush.  We were also able to get pictures with Baymax, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Pluto.

For lunch, we ate around the countries again.  I was so hot that I didn't eat much, but I know we visited France, Japan, Ireland, United Kingdom, Australia, and Scotland.  I'm probably forgetting one or two.

Funny story about about Relaunched! Mission Space:  So I told Gavin I would take him on that ride since we weren't going back to Animal Kingdom.  It had two levels, green and orange.  Orange was more of a wild ride and that is what Gavin chose.  He asked Allie to go with us.  As we are in line, they keep warning you about close, dark spaces, how wild the ride is, motion sickness, etc.  Allie and I were getting a bit nervous, but went ahead with it.  After you are strapped in with bars over your shoulders and everything, they shine a light down on sick bags!!  Allie and I just start laughing because it was either laugh or cry and Gavin got very serious and said, "Stop laughing! Stop laughing!  I don't want us to have to use those things!!"  The ride was very intense and your head gets sucked back so hard Gavin was crying out in pain for a few seconds.  You have to push buttons as part of the ride so that was fun, but WOW!  We all agreed we would do green next time!

Goofy made Mickey Ears like the kids were wearing

You can barely see Lilah in the back row between Uncle Charles and Aunt Allie!

Macie and I were inline to ride Test Track, but she decided right as we were loading that she didn't want to do it.  I totally understood and waited with her for the others.

The girls originally wanted to see Joy and Sadness from Inside out, but the wait was quite long, so we decided to do Frozen Ever After instead because the wait said 35 minutes.  It was a tad longer but the que was really neat and the ride was very well done.  Well, this picture totally cracks me up because there was a drop we weren't expecting and Gavin is freaked out that we aren't buckled in and Brian is NOT happy with me.  It ended up being a small splash and not a big deal.  It was Macie's favorite ride!  Once again, you can barely see Lilah on the other side of Brian!

Pluto was another character Gavin was happy to see.  He even licks the autographs!
