Walt Disney World Rides – Epcot Center

At the end of Day 1, after Animal Kingdom, I still had time before I took my shuttle back to the hotel so I decided to take a ride in the monorail. I was hoping I could sit down, my feet needed a deserved rest but no, I felt like riding in a full rushhour subway. I did get a seat once we arrived to Magic Kingdom. I enjoyed the ride back to Epcot.

And I did this ride, Spaceship Earth in the Future World. At the end of the ride they take a picture of you and ask you to fill in a questionaire on a screen in the car, and then they make a mini montage according to your answers. At the exit, like in the Dinosaur ride, they have big screens with pictures of everyone on the rides. They are numbered and they have computers where you can email the animation they made with your picture and answers. I enjoyed this free extra.

On day 2 the first ride I did was “Soarin”. I believe it is the best ride that Disney has. I had tears in my eyes as it was so beautiful. It was worth my 3 day ticket with the park hopper option. If you ever go to Disney, this ride is a must. Oh, and they even lift your seat up so your feet are dangling. I’m not sure if they tilt you forward a bit but for sure I remember vividly that they spray you with scents of pine above a pine tree forest, and with the scents of orange above an orange tree grove. I felt like it was the most wonderful moment of my life.

My second ride was “Living With The Land”, a boat voyage through amazing greenhouses and a fish farm. The rides in small cars are my favorites, after walking and waiting in lines for hours.

The next ride was “Journey Into Imagination with Figment”: A Journey that will engage the imagination and the senses. The only thing I remembered after the ride was at the end we got sprayed with the smell of a skunk!

“Honey I Shrunk The Audience”In-your face 3D adventure film where I met a woman from Ville Lasalle or Lachine, with her daugter. She was so cute, asking while we waited sitting on the carpeted floor if there would be monsters jumping on us. That woman kicked me in the legs a few times when the air shots coming out of the benches made you believe mice were running between your legs.

Canada: “O Canada”, Circle-Vision 360 film. Hosted by Canadian actor martin Short. 14 minute shows. I liked this movie exept when Martin spoke a bit of french when he introduced the province of Quebec – in Part II of the YouTube video – and said “La Belle Provence” while what he meant to say was “La Belle Province“. These are similar words but have totally different meanings. Provence is a region in the south of France, and Province, well, is a Province. I thought Martin should have made a bit more of an effort, being an actor he should have been able to rehearse and practice to pronounce Province right. But then maybe that was the Director’s job to tell him . But I still thought he was a good host!
