Disney, Epcot

Today, (Friday) we decided to go to Epcot in the morning and do some rides in hollywood studios.

  
The main thing that stands out in Epcot is the topiary

    

This is just a selection of what they have, it just seems that if it is a disney character they have cut a plant into the shape of it.

They also had a water/fountain feature.

  

They have an area around the back that has various country setups, London, Paris, and so on. 

  
  
 

We then went back to Hollywood Studios to see the Indianna Jones Stunt spectacular, and movie history ride.

  Sorry it is a bit blurry, the Stunt Spectacular wasn’t exactly what we were expecting, there were the stunts which were amazing, what we weren’t expcting was all the ‘show’ crap that went with it, I suppose that it does make it more of a show but it did get in way of our enjoyment. As far as I can work out they were pretending that they were at the actual filming of raiders. The stunts the were done were the boulder scene from the beginning, then the kidnapping scene from the bazaar and the one at the areodrome where Indy fights the Large man while Marion is trapped in the plane.

The Great Movie Ride experience was also not what we expected, what it was, was a ride through lots of sound stages with set up of certain famous scenes, such as Gene Kelly swing round a lamp post from Singing in the Rain and the farewell scene from Casablanca. Some of the Animatronics were quite similar to the actual actor and others not so much. I don’t know what Simon was expecting, but I was expecting a more interative experience with video and more of a walk through the history of the movies, instead of just one dodgy movie set after another. 

We completed day three with takeaway Pizza.
