I left for EPCOT about 8:15am. I went on the 9:00am tour “Gardens of the World”. This tour walks the park and talks about the flowers on display and what it takes to put on the Flower & Garden Festival each year. They do not grow any flowers from seed. They order their plants from vendors as much as a year in advance. She showed us how they make the many topiaries they display. It was interesting but not the best tour I have ever taken. The cost for this tour was $77. The tour lasted until 12:15pm. At the end we rec’d a special pin that only tour participants receive. Here are some photos taken while on the tour.
After the tour I had fish and chips from the fish shop in the United Kingdom land. The fish is so good there. I have it every trip. I left EPCOT about 2:30 for a break. I left “the world” to have some dinner at Sweet Tomatoes. The food was very good. I went back to EPCOT at 8:00pm to continue my visit and enjoy the 9:00pm “Illuminations” show. The weather was nice all day and it was a lovely evening as well.
Here are a few photos from my evening:
I left EPCOT at 10:00pm and was back in the room at 10:30pm.
