"The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences." - Eleanor Roosevelt

On Tuesday, we spent the day at Epcot. We had a quick breakfast at the resort and we were at the park by 8:45am. The first thing we had to do was Test Track. This is the one that the boys have been looking forward to for months! They got to design their own car on a computer screen and then take a ride that went up to 60 mph. It was pretty fun. This is one that would have been nice to have been able to do again, but it was so busy that we never got the chance. After the ride was over, you got to do some other activities before you got to the inevitable gift shop, so we spent a good amount of time at this one attraction! Then, we did Spaceship Earth which takes you through some history. Funny thing is that I rode with Ben and before I even got seated he had selected German as our language, so the whole attraction was told to us in German. We walked through Project Tomorrow and did the Seas with Nemo that exited into a room full of aquariums. The boys spent a lot of time there just watching the fish and looking for sharks! We had a quick lunch at Electric Umbrella.

After lunch we did Journey into Imagination with Figment, Living with the Land, and then we walked around to all of the countries in the World Showcase for the rest of the afternoon (in the rain!) Before dinner we were able to do Soarin which is the ride that feels like you're on a hang glider flying over the world. We did Living with the Land again so Nick could see all the produce again, and then we got to eat at the Garden Grill. This was the best meal we had all week!  The boys got to meet Chip and Dale and Pluto while we ate. The restaurant actually rotated so our view was always changing so it was pretty cool!

After dinner we did the Turtle Talk show where the kids got to ask questions to some of Nemo's friends. Ben got to talk in front of everyone! We did Spaceship Earth again (so I could hear it in English) and then it was time for the Illuminations fireworks show! Another great way to end the night!
