And we learned about gardening challenges in the Festival Center, bringing home another Epcot Flower and Garden reusable bag. Our project was to plant calocasia bulbs (also known as the "elephant ear" plant) to take home.  These are my favorite plants in Florida, so I hope I have a green enough thumb to grow them!

I plan to do a review soon on Kringla Bakeri og Kafe, which is our favorite counter service restaurant at Epcot. Kringla Bakeri og Kafe offers several sandwich choices – we split a roast beef sandwich, which was then toasted. We also split one of our favorite dessert items, a school bread!

We went to Disney's Hollywood Studios last night with family, and rode Toy Story Midway Mania just before the park closed. The wait time said 80 minutes – but it was actually about 20 minutes. I've not even walked the queue in a few years , I've missed out!  You can see how empty it was here:

Tomorrow the Lego Imagination Center re-opens at Downtown Disney!  We'll be there to check it out, as well as the re-opened store, Little Miss Matched.
