Disney’s Epcot Day 1

February 18, 2016

The weather couldn’t be better !!  The first thing we did was rent two scooters.  Their maximum speed was about a fast walk, so no possibilities for drag racing here.   The second thing we did was eat a hot dog with chips in “Canada.” Somehow they taste better when they cost $8 each.

Many Moroccan festivals are accompanied by a Fantasia to celebrate the importance of horsemanship to traditional culture. In the Fantasia, riders in elaborate costumes gallop toward each other at full speed – then stop and fire their rifles into the air.  This life-size model Fantasia was in the small museum in Morocco at Epcot.  At right, above, Tom stands in front of an intricately carved panel in the same museum.
