Matthew Monday: Disney World Vacation, Part 2

Here’s a Part 2 to last week’s Matthew Monday post on our Disney World vacation. 

First up are some pictures at Epcot.  We never did figure out what “Epcot” stands for.  Some future thing and a replication of a dozen or so countries with really good restaurants representing their cuisine.  The people at each country are actually from that country, and so they bring an extra charm to the restaurants, stores, and exhibits.  I could show you lots of pictures of each country’s exhibit, but I’m sure you can find it at their website.  Instead I’ll focus on general pictures.

Going into Epcot.

Meeting with Pluto! 

Matthew really enjoyed meeting up with the characters.  Here one with Duffy. 

I have no clue who Duffy is.

Here’s a couple of pictures back at the hotel.  The pool area had a sprinkler.

And a baby pool, which was one foot deep.  Matthew could have used a two foot or so, but the options were one foot and then over three and a half feet or greater, which would have been over Matthew’s head.

Finally my favorite was Animal Kingdom.  The safari ride was great.  I could show you lots of pictures of animals but that would focus on Matthew.  One day I’ll have to post some of the pictures of animals I captured.  Photo captured, that is.  But for now here’s a few of Matthew. 

This is waiting outside the Simba Show, which was great.  Matthew wanted a stuffed baby Simba.

There was also a petting zoo.

And a picture below of the Himalayan Roller Coaster, or whatever it was called.  (I don’t think that’s the right name,)  That looked like some ride, but Matthew was too small to go on it.

Though Disney was not exactly my thing, we did have a good time.


  1. Supposedly Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. I don't know who Duffy is either. Looks like everyone had a good time.

  2. I had a friend at school called Duffy. Lost contact with him years ago. I wonder if it is him in the picture.

    Thank you for making happy memories for your son. You and your wife are great parents.

    God bless you all.
