Day 5 Epcot

How fast time passed, we are now in the last day of the parks. Of course there were more parks like: Universal Island of Adventure, Disney Studios and Sea World plus other water parks but we didn't had a lot of time.

We woke up early and had breakfast at the Regency Club. After getting ready we took the 10:00 a.m. bus from the hotel to the parks. Because it takes you to the Ticket and Transportation Center you then need to take the monorail to Epcot which it was almost empty compared to the one of Magic Kingdom. The ride is just 7 minutes, so at about 11:00 a.m. we were at the entrance of the park.

As you enter the park just right under the big ball there is the attraction called the Spaceship Earth, so we lined up because it said it was just 20 minutes (but actually it was about 30). While I was waiting my son went to running to the Soarin attraction for Fastpass and we got them for until 3:00 p.m. This is sure the most popular ride. The Spaceship Earth was great and it takes the ride is about 15 minutes and they even add your photo and you create your future, I liked this one.
After this ride we went and ride the Mission Space, we first rode the one without spin but it's really nothing it was very boring. So we took the Fastpass and came later and ride the one with spin and no doubt why someone died, they put so much pressure that the only difference is that you get the feeling of "going to space" and you get really dizzy.

In between of those rides we went to the Test Track and it's just so great that I wanted to go again. I recommend it a lot. So with just these rides we went and tour the pavilion starting with the one in Canada. I liked a lot this pavilions because they show something from each country. Then we passed though the U.K pavilion and also the France and Morocco pavilion. We then went to Japan to eat as we had a reservation at the Tokyo Dinning which is just great. They gave a table right exactly in front of the japanese monument and the White big ball. Also the service is great and 100% japanese.
But what I most liked was the food, it was just awesome. The sushi rolls were great specially the Volcano one and for the dessert remember if you come here try the GREENT TEA PUDDING. The prices are not too high. There is also a Tepanyaki restaurant next that it was full.

After eating we continued our tour passing though the American (we didn't even stop there) and the Italian which is very nice. We also visited Germany and China which was one of my top 3. Then there is Norway and finally MEXICO!!!! I was really happy to see that Mexico was the most or the second most popular pavilion, obviously because of the high level of mexican and latins tourists. So if you ask me if it was 100% mexican I would say no, there were some stereotype but most of the food was the same as we have here!!
After visiting all the pavilion my Top 3 are: China, Mexico and Japan. Japan and Mexico were almost as full but I would say there was probably more people in Japan and this was my favorite pavilion.

Just before going out of the park we bought some photos at the entrance and then we took the Monorail( a bit too early) and waited about 30 minutes at the TTC for the Hyatt bus to come and they almost left us!!!. We were at the benches just in front of the buses and as soon as we saw the bus arriving we start walking towards it (it was like 50 meters away) but then it left and my son start running like for 15 seconds to stop the bus until it stopped.

We then arrived at the hotel at 10:00 p.m. and sleep well....
