Our “Get out of the Cold” Vacation – Mexico (Day 4)

We spent the fourth day (Thursday, January 14th) of our Florida vacation at Epcot. Epcot is divided into two parts: Future World and World Showcase. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I will be sharing with you our visit at World Showcase over the next several days. Earlier I shared with you our visit to Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, the American Adventure, Italy, Germany, an African Outpost, China and Norway.  This blog post contains photographs from our visit to Mexico.

All total, we spent approximately 5 hours at Epcot’s World Showcase. I’m sure that you have heard the saying “If it’s Tuesday, this must be Belgium”. Well, our walk through World Showcase was similar. You might recall that while walking towards World Showcase that we learned our vacation was cut short. Bob, who had been on temporary lay off from work since January 4, was to return to work on Monday. Our walk through World Showcase was at a faster pace than desired; however, we wanted to catch the 5:30 PM shuttle back to our hotel to pack for our return home, which would be an early departure the next day.

I hope that you have enjoyed walking with me through World Showcase. What I find so attractive about World Showcase is that the architecture, the food, the merchandise that is sold, the entertainment and the employees are authentic. I believe that a visitor to World Showcase can find the essence of a country, much as a traveler returning from a visit might remember what he or she saw. Visiting World Showcase is the next best thing to actually traveling to a particular country. Of course, I would much rather visit the actual country if the opportunity presented itself!

    Linda, Disney should hire you to promote their parks. I've never had the slightest interest in visiting there, but your World Showcase pictures find me revising my opinion.

    I agree with Ian! Such beautiful photos, Linda! Especially the night shot by the fountain! So romantic! The pyramid is very artsy. Gorgeous architecture, the giveaway are the pinatas! You look so cute in that sombreros! Hello there Donald Duck mi amigo!

    You've described so much so well. I've had many friends who've gone but could not truly give a feel of what Disney World was like to be there but none made me feel I was there like you have. I think Ian is right – Disney should hire you! Nice job!
