We visited Epcot so many times - it was a staple for dinner. Our free park hopper upgrades on the tickets were a real treat. I didn't think we'd hop around as much as we did.

One of our trip highlights was in Epcot. While visiting the Living Sea area we stopped to watch the manatees feed. (Sadie is now known as the couch manatee due to her strong resemblance to the gentle sea cow.) As we were watching a burst of bubbles came up from under one of the manatees - you guessed a manatee fart. It's just not everyday you get to witness a manatee fart. We also each found a hidden mickey in the living seas exhibit (a great start to our vacation).

Another trip highlight (definitely Michael's favorite activity) - a 2 hour Segway tour of Epcot. We were inside learning how to ride the Segway for about 20 minutes and then they took our group of 8 outside for a tour of the World Showcase. The World Showcase of the park was closed to the general public, so the paths were deserted - perfect for Segway riding. The Segway is so sensitive you don't even have to lean forward to get it to move forward, just push your toes down. To move backwards you push your heels down. It only took about 5 minutes to get comfortable on it.

Due to a quick rain shower we didn't get to ride test track, but I did find a hidden mickey while in line. Can you find it in the photo of the workbench?
