Epcot is the park we are visiting on our last day.
And happily we were able to get a spot at the French restaurant again. It seems an appropriate open and close.
The weather again is unusually nice, at least in my estimation. Maybe Florida secretly has lovely weather just like California doesn’t have earthquakes and the Minnesota weathers aren’t that bad (except they are, they are horrible, don’t move there).
On the way to Epcot, we drove the golf cart back to it’s drop off location and then headed over.
Our main goal was lunch so we did a few rides, the boat ride looking at greenhouses, the Disney/Pixar short film film, the silly Imagination ride. We walked through the butterfly house and looked at flowers. It was nice and relaxing.
Overall crowds continue to be a little higher each day. It seems about 1/2 the people wear masks now when they don’t need to by current Disney rules. Outdoors and in the open it’s probably ok. But we could still end up like India.
Anyway, lunch was a delight. We were seated at a corner window table in the room with a wide view of the center part of the France pavilion at Epcot. It’s great for people watching.
I had the salad and the beef burgandy and both were delicious. I’ll need to try braising beef again soon to see if I can do something similar. Julia Child captured the classic resipe in her Mastering the Art of French Cooking which I’ve used before.
Then ice cream in France. Again it was good though I’m finding I don’t crave ice cream. I’m not sure what that says about me. We also stopped in the bakery there and got crossiants and baguettes for the trip to Minnesota.
Walking out of Epcot, most crowds coming in the other way around 2pm. Back to the camp site to get the RV and car ready for travel tomorrow.
