I got to Epcot at 4pm and am quite happy with how much i got to experience. Showed my father the Kuka arm being used for The Sum of All Thrills attraction in Innoventions before saying goodbye to him and going off to do my thing. I was able to walk right onto Mission: Space, Test Track, Journey Into Imagination, Impressions de France, Maelstrom and Spaceship Earth. Something you will learn about me is I am not a fan of my feet dangling on an attraction so I tend to shy away from Soarin' if I am not with a group that is going on it. Before heading out of the park I had to do my obligatory stop in a the Mitsukoshi store in the Japan Pavillion.
My personal tradition is that I have to try something new every time I am there. This visit was no exception. What I tried was called Pom Tsurugaru Ringo. It was amazing! It is a non-carbonated soft drink with an apple flavor. I want you to imagine taking a bite of a juicy sweet apple and bottling that flavor. As I was sipping my drink and walking towards the exit, the Taiko Drummers started performing and I have to say it was the perfect end to my visit today. Sipping on a delicious Japanese drink while watching the amazingly talented girls on the Taiko drums as the sun sets on Spaceship Earth and the Torii Gate.
