Our “Get out of the Cold” Vacation – Japan (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 and Morocco. This blog post contains photographs from our visit to Japan.

Our “Get Out of the Cold” Vacation – Day 4 (Canada)

We visited Epcot on Day 4 (Thursday, January 14th) of our vacation. Epcot is divided into two parts: Future World and World Showcase. Yesterday I wrote about our visit at Future World. Over the next several days I will share with you our visit at World Showcase. The first country that we visited was Canada.

Hotel du Canada

The Hotel du Canada is modeled after Ottawa’s Victorian-style Chateau Laurier. Note the single Canadian Rocky Mountain to the right of the hotel in the top photograph.

We watched the movie “O Canada!”, a Circle-Vision 360° movie of Canada’s cities and scenery. The movie provides a you-are-there feeling that makes all of this spectacular scenery memorable.

Stay tuned; my next blog post is about our visit to the United Kingdom.
