We never did find out what the technical difficulty was that you will hear announced on this film.

Blaze didn't feel very well after the Maelstrom ride, but sitting in the shade for awhile with a bottle of water and this strawberry -red bean ice cream seemed to cure him

By the time we reached the Canadian Pavilion, it was dark. This is the gift shop where Blaze got his new "coon skin" cap.

He walked out of the store wearing the hat and singing the Davy Crockett song.

We watched the fireworks show from right in front of the Canadian Pavilion.

HOW FUN! I have to admit, I didn't realize Epcot had rides and all of that to look at and learn from. I thought it was only the big white ball from your previous post. This is amazing!

I liked watching your day progress with the sunlight changing in your photos. :)

Glad Blaze got a coon skin cap, too. :)

I was very impressed with the singers in the America section when we visited. I really like them. Well it isn't like Disney can't afford to hire talented musicians. All of the music at Epcot was good.

Fun! Now I know, if I had a choice, I would choose Epcot over Disney any day.

Goodness! You guys are so busy right now. All your trips look great. :) And so much fun!

I love the pictures when you took the walk. The black swan in particular. Cyan and I both said "I didn't know there were BLACK swans!" lol!
