It was such a great weekend, I always am happy when Peter Noone comes to Epcot (I'll have those photos in a different update, but we have video here)! I had some non-Disney time too with a couple of Tampa Bay Lightning games, and went to a power plant in Apollo Beach to look at manatees (but it is a little late in the season, we ended up seeing dolphins, stingrays and huge Tarpon fish instead). I have some photos from Epcot and also the closing of Ariel's Grotto and more.
The first few photos are of high school bands from Magic Music Days. During this time, the bands are scattered a bit, you don't normally see parades marching through Epcot:
The Mexico Cantina looks different each time we pass by:
Sunday at the Magic Kingdom, Scuttles was closed but Ariels Grotto was open. By Monday, Ariels Grotto was completely closed as well, though Pooh's Playful Spot was still open (it was scheduled to also be closed on Monday). I have some photos from Ariels Grotto on Sunday (as well a some from a week or so ago), followed by it being walled up. Ariel and Eric should be in Adventureland on or by May 11th for about a year, and Ariel may be in a ball gown.
