If I were the same person in 2012 as I am know, I would be so disappointed at the limited amount of photos I took while I was in Epcot. To be fair, Charles and I took the red eye after attending our economics statistics class while we were in college. We arrived in Orlando bright and early at 7:30 in the morning, checked into our hotel, and after a quick one hour nap, headed off to Epcot. All I really remember from that time was eating at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, checking out the Japan Pavillion at Epcot, and then heading back to the hotel room for the rest of the day and eating sandwiches from Earl of Sandwich. We only had one day in Orlando and we were off to Port Canaveral to embark on a cruise so we didn’t have enough time to do anything else.
After my Tokyo Disneyland post, you would think I would have something other than French pastries AND a lot more photos but that was a different time in my life. I do plan on going back sometime in the future. I’ll make sure I have more to post then!
Epcot for a Day
Epcot is HUGE. I think we only knocked down half the park within four hours. Actually, the whole entire Walt Disney Resort is crazy huge and I wish we got to visit the other parks. We stayed at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista. It’s about two miles away from Epcot and walking distance from Disney Springs. The Hilton offered complimentary shuttle to all of the Disney parks which we took advantage of. Disney Springs was pretty awesome as there so many shops and dining there (Earl of Sandwich was located here).
Les Halles Boulangerie-Patiserrie
Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie was the only place Charles and I tried in Epcot while we were there. I haven’t been to France (yet) and I’m not sure how it compares to it, but it was good. Was it mind blowing good like Tokyo Disneyland? Not so much to be honest but since this was the only place we tried while we were there, we could have missed other delicious eats! Charles and I ordered a napoleon and a croissant with ham and cheese and like I said, they were good but easily forgettable.
Have you been to Epcot before?
