EPCOT - 6/3/2014

Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow or EPCOT was our sole destination on our second day in Florida.

The day began for the band when we dropped them off in the backstage area of EPCOT.  They spent the morning performing with the Disney music instructors learning and playing Disney movie themes.  The band did an film-score session in which they played the title music for Aladdin following along with the filmís opening sequence.  The Disney artists recorded this on a DVD for the band to keep.

In the meantime, Jenny and I and the rest of the chaperones began enjoying the adventures in the park.  In the afternoon the band joined us in the park for more fun in the sun.

The level of theming in the park is just astounding.  I was very impressed with everything in the park.  The fact that there are no roller coasters didnít affect the amount of fun we had all day.

We took in the sights and sounds of the 360 degree films in China and Canada. Maelstom in Norway and Gran Fiesta Tour in Mexico were very good.  My nostalgia got the best of me when I wanted to go see Captain EO with Michael Jackson. We also rode Living with the Land, Spaceship Earth and The Seas with Nemo and Friends.  My most anticipated ride was Soarin.  And it didnít disappoint.  Late in the day we finished off with Mission: Space and Test Track.  I was afraid that I might get sick on such an intense spinning ride like Mission: Space, but I made it through fine.  Test Track was my favorite ride of the day.

Our day concluded as the entire band and chaperones gathered in Germany to watch the evening music, light, laser and fireworks spectacular IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth lit up the skies over EPCOTís World Showcase.
