Epcot - Day 1

Epcot was easily our favorite park and it deserves 2 days.
This Spring they featured a Flower & Garden Festival throughout the park. It featured the most intricate topiaries, characters and gardens. It was beautiful!
Pixie Hollow Garden

Alayna loves to pick the petals off of flowers...not the best idea, we had to watch her.
The street shows were so fun and we seemed to hit the timing perfectly for most of them. Samantha got to be the constant volunteer for the Italian sisters comedy show. At one point her and Papa were both posing. Sam remembered this pose and you'll see it in many more pictures to come. She felt so special.
Dinner at Akerhaus Castle for Papa's Birthday.
Alayna walked right up to Belle, sat down and then scooched in closer. It was adorable.
Ariel was hilarious! She called us all guppies and said Alayna must be part-whale because of her whale spout.
Samantha is a HUGE fan of Ariel right now.
Sam asked Cinderella if she still gets to see her step sisters again and if they are still mean. "Oh, no...they are much kinder now!"
We asked Snow White who her favorite dwarf is..."how can I decide, they are like children! I couldn't possibly pick a favorite...could you." Ummm, yes...we could depending on the day.
We got to keep the pictures with Belle. They were instant treasures of Sam's. She is just adoring them in this picture. We even saw her kissing and hugging them. She is so dramatic.
We went to the Nemo building towards the end of the day and ending up spending about 45 minutes just sitting while the kids played. We left about 8pm and missed the Illuminattions show...another day, right?
