Disney World May 2012 Trip Report Pt 4

The next morning repeated my popular refrain: I got up really early to wander around the resort. There’s a reason I don’t call these vacation reports (besides the fact that “trip report” was a common term before I started writing my own reports) and that’s because the word vacation implies some sort of relaxation.

While I have incredibly vivid memories of Journey into Imagination, World of Motion, Body Wars, and other EPCOT Center

Epcot Monorail Race Photo
