Hello everyone! I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting much lately. I recently had a really cool opportunity. My friend Brooke's family invited me to join them on their vacation! We started our trip at Disney World! We stayed in the Wilderness Lodge, which is decorated to look like a National Park lodge in the Pacific Northwest. There was a little and waterfall right in the lobby! It had a cute bridge going over it, which is what Brooke and I are standing on in this photo.
Once we were checked in at the Wilderness Lodge, we headed to Epcot! There are several different parks at Disney World, but I was looking forward to Epcot the most. Our first stop was the Canada pavilion, where we meet these animals inspired by traditional Northwest First Nations designs.
Here's Brooke with an owl! We had fun exploring the Canada pavilion; it was my very first experience with a Disney park.
In this picture, we'd climbed to the top of an eagle and were balancing carefully.
Brooke and I were lucky to be at Epcot for the International Flower & Garden Festival! There were adorable topiaries everywhere. Do you recognize who is behind me? That's Bambi!
Brooke's family members are big Disney fans, so she knows so much about the parks and the movies! Since my family doesn't watch a lot of Disney movies, she was helping me to figure out who all the different topiaries represented. That's Thumper, Bambi's rabbit friend, next to Brooke!
Here I am in part of the Canada pavilion with lots of cool rocks and waterfalls! It was so cool and weird to see little glimpses of several different countries in Florida.
The Canada pavilion has a trading post where you can buy things that you can usually only get in Canada. Each country's pavilion has themed shops and places to eat.
Here we are at the Morocco pavilion! I really liked tiles. One of my parents, Mom, loves tilework. Isn't the fountain huge compared to us? A lot of things about Disney World were larger than life.
My favorite pavilions were Canada (I liked the rocks), Japan (I liked the cool store with lots of Totoro stuff!), and Norway (I rode the Frozen Ever After ride twice!). It was really fun to meet Pikachu in Japan and ride through Arendelle with Elsa, Anna, and their friends.
Epcot was a great park to experience Disney for the first time! Have you ever been to a theme park? Where did you go?
