I woke up on day 2 pretty excited about going to Epcot. This would be my first trip ever to Epcot. Growing up in Florida and having gone on trips to Disney throughout my life, I am not quite sure how I hadn’t visited this park at some point. We arrived at the park shortly after they opened (thanks to no car trouble that morning). It was sunny and warmer than the day before. We went on a few of the rides they have in the front part of the park and were holding on to our fast passes for Test Track that was scheduled for around 2;30. Test Track was the ride the boys were most excited for. I was excited about the countries!
A little over an hour into our day the sun hid into the clouds and it was quite overcast. Once we hit the part of the park where the countries were (all surrounding a large lake), we turned right towards Canada. We ordered a couple of drinks and bought Hunter a croissant type doughnut something or other and then the drizzling started. We ducked into a shop to wait it out. I had checked the weather that morning and the rain that was headed our way looked as though it would probably just quickly pass over but when I checked it again at that point it looked like it may never end. Glenn bought me a poncho and we made the best with what we had.
We missed a lot that had to do with all the countries; a few rides and shows here and there, but with the constant rain, we just wanted to get through it all. By the time we walked around the whole lake and finished the last country (Mexico, in which I had to get a frozen margarita), we headed on over to Test Track to find that the ride was closed due to the crappy weather. I felt bad that the boys didn’t get to enjoy their ride but I guess we will just have to make a trip back to Epcot to finish what we started.
The rain continued through the evening even after we had ventured out for dinner. It was a pretty blah day weather wise but it was the start of a gorgeous bright, sunny, and cold day for Hollywood Studios the next!
