Disney Love- Epcot, December 2019

Christmas tree in American pavilion in Epcot

Over Christmas we travelled to Disney World for an improptu holiday trip.  We needed a little holiday Disney magic!  Over the last three years, we have spent time at Disney over the holidays so we were expecting the crowds and long wait times.  We are usually okay with that since our schedules only allow for travel at Christmas time or summer.

We stayed at the Coronado Springs resort for our first time.  The new Gran Torino Tower was beautiful!  I loved the architeture and details!  We enjoyed the lobby and surrounding areas very much.  Our room was in an older area but seemed like it had also been recently updated.  We loved the Three Amigos theme!  It also had an amazing pool area.

After arriving and unpacking a bit we headed over to Epcot.  Epcot is usually our first day choice because we don't feel like we need to have a long day in this park.  Our favorite thing about Epcot is the food!  During the holidays they host the International Festival of the Holidays and we enjoy walking around to all the booths to try different things!

We have a few favorite rides in Epcot including Soarin' and Mission: Space but I prefer to spend time walking around in Epcot.  We only rode a few rides this time around.  Since we travelled early, we also went back to the resort before the fireworks.

It was a great first day in the parks!  We loved all the different foods we tried- especially the poutine, asian fries, and sushi.  We can't wait to see what our next trip to Epcot looks like- hopefully we can plan a trip soon!

What is your favorite Disney park?  Do you have a favorite time to visit Epcot?
