After our morning tour Behind The Seeds at The Land pavilion, we continued our day with a few experiences in Epcot and then a few random stops across the resort... As locals, we don't often get the chance to take advantage of the variety of resort amenities and offerings, so we made it a point to do a few things we'd never done before at Walt Disney World!
Starbucks for the win!
Guardians of the Galaxy – Awesome Mix Live! had just debuted during our visit so I made it a priority to have us check it out!
The show was super fun and the vocal talent behind it were really great! I'm hoping the show comes back in some form when the new Guardians of the Galaxy coaster opens.
Hooked on a feeling!
Hit me with your best shot--fire away!
What better way to celebrate a birthday at Epcot than with FastPasses scored for Frozen Ever After?
Seriously... I enjoyed Maelstrom for its quirkiness, but Frozen Ever After is an infinitely better experience. The animatronics are incredible, the retheming of the space (queue included) is flawless and the ride actually has a cohesive storyline.
I can't wait for the Guardians of the Galaxy coaster to open!
Back at Art of Animation for a little more fun...
The Little Mermaid wing is really decorated well!
This watermelon cupcake was all kinds of awesome!
Disney's Skyliner construction as seen from our hotel room door...
And more to the side.
I couldn't resist dancing my way around the resort...
Really dancing around...
Ursula is huge (not meant in a disrespectful way)...
The Cars wing of the resort is really cute too. I wouldn't take it over Cars Land's Radiator Springs, but this is still fun to roam around.
Next up was a visit to Disney Springs for something my wife had yet to do...
Time to take a ride on Aerophile!
You don't get this view of Disney Springs very often!
See how many attractions you can spot!
The West Side of Disney Springs is still heavily under construction as the NBA Experience and Jaleo are both built.
I'm REALLY excited for Jaleo!
I'm also very curious to see what the NBA Experience ends up including.
Don't forget, La Nouba closed at the end of last year to make way for a new Cirque du Soleil show created specifically for Disney.
A look at the new Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill opening up by Planet Hollywood and the Coca-Cola Store.
We ended our Florida Staycation with our first trip to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Ft. Wilderness!
Who doesn't love fried chicken?
I could live off of these ribs!
This is the same kind of humor I would've expected to find in the Golden Horseshoe back in the day.
Singing, dancing and comedy make for a really entertaining dinner show that has been operating for guests for over four decades.
Really a great time, especially for someone that has never been before.
Good ole country fun.
Oh, and the icing on the cake? Well, strawberry shortcake actually.
A really sweet way to end our weekend staycation!
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
