When is the last time you had a whole child-free day with your gal pals? SCMOM took at Saturday and went to enjoy the Food & Wine Festival at EPCOT! With shirts and ears, the group was easy to spot, and moms of multiples from other places stopped to talk a couple times – one even asked for a picture! Three moms arrived early enough for “rope drop,” which is definitely something that is tough to do with two or more children in tow! There was a rush to Frozen, then time for Spaceship Earth before meeting up with those who came at a more reasonable hour.
Everyone was together to enjoy starting the Festival with mimosas and cronuts, followed by a ride on Soarin’ – something many with shorter children aren’t able to do on Disney ventures! There was shopping, visiting countless booths for delicious food and tasty drinks, a character visit with Mary Poppins, and a Baha Men concert.
As moms began to drop for the day, others pushed on with determination to finish Remy’s scavenger hunt, ride Frozen again, tour the Mexico pavilion, and pick up souvenirs for their little ones. As the night wound down, two were left to hit up Test Track and experience the magnificence that is IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. It was a day to remember, and an awesome reminder of how fun Disney can be for adults!
