Disney Day 1: Our First Character Dining Experience & Frozen Ever After!

Our first full day in Disney saw us heading to Epcot for our first ever character dining experience. Me and Mike, with no kids, both not great conversationalists, I was a little worried, but really wanted to do it because.. well, it's Disney, need I say more?!

We arrived at Garden Grill which is a slow rotating restaurant. The food was A-mazing! A gorgeous warm tear-away cinammon bun arrived, with fresh bowls of tropical fruit, then a pan full of bacon, sausages, potato croquettes and mickey waffles followed. SO good! Pluto decided to throw salt sachets all over our table, and we also posed for photos with Mickey and Chip & Dale. Big kids, I know.

These singers sung Christmas carols and they were amazing!
We made our way around The World Showcase, and sampled the Frozen Ever After ride in the process (a fast pass is definitely need for this!). Although I'm not a huge Frozen fan, the design of this ride gave me goosebumps, but I wont spoil it for those that are due to go! It was so nice having a casual stroll through all the 'countries' at a leisurely pace instead of rushing round trying to cram everything in like we had done previous years. I suppose that's one of the advantages of going a few times, the visits get more and more laid back the more times you go. It enabled us to go into little nooks and crannies that I didn't realise existed before.

We had a quick service meal at Lotus Blossom Café in the China pavilion, this is always a good call. Their honey glazed chicken is perfection. We made use of our memory maker and took lots of photos next to all the huge Christmas trees, lit up in the dark. Everywhere looked magical

Tired from our first full day, combined with jet lag, we left Epcot around 8pm and headed back to the hotel for a chilled night.

Stay tuned for day 2!
