Epcot - Pixar Anniversary Celebration

We started our trip going to Epcot. Epcot was celebrating Pixar's anniversary at their flower and garden festival and Epcot was having a special Pixar weekend highlighting Cars 2. We are SO excited for Cars 2 to come out in June. Our boys have been counting down the days for months. :) So they were thrilled. David and Owen did a race around the world scavenger hunt and collected a special pin when they completed it. They also got lots of Cars 2 treats. And, they got to meet the cars of Cars 2! (more on that later)

This year Owen was surprisingly very brave! He went on Test Track with me and David and loved it! David went on Mission Space with me, because it makes Dave have motion sickness. It was fun going with David! He loved going to space! We also enjoyed the Nemo ride and aquarium again. David actually got to talk to Crush! He called on him and David was so cute. He was really excited and shy about it.

We had a wonderful and special first day at Epcot. We left in the afternoon to go swimming and came back for dinner and the fireworks.

The Toy Story 3 characters which were all there!

CARS 2!!!!!!

At the end of the night, this came up on the world...the boys were so excited! :)

Because of the special weekend, all the pixar characters were there! The boys were so excited to get to meet Boo and Sully, Mr. Incredible, Russell, Remy and Emile (life-size), the Bugs Life characters, and all the Toy Story characters. It was so much fun. They were so cute going up to them. Owen was just so thrilled.

The boys all got a Cars 2 poster just like this. We put it up on their wall as soon as we got home. :)

Peter Pan and Captain Hook!

David read the map and by himself figured out each place we needed to go for the scavenger hunt. He just had the time of his life. :)

At each stop, they had Cars 2 coloring pages to do which the boys loved!

Toy Story!!!

So sweet.

We had dinner with Mickey, Pluto, Chip and Dale on a revolving restaurant. The boys loved that it revolved!
Owen was so excited to meet Mickey!

Liam loved the characters. He gave them kisses! It was so sweet.

A perfect ending.
