A Day at Aloha Isle and Epcot
I tried out the new Via Napoli Restaurant in Epcot's Italy Pavilion with Marc Lorenzo (Walt Disney World Moms Panel) and his son Josiah. I'm on the left in the photo.
Ryan P. Wilson had alerted me to an image on the right side of the rear wall mural inside Via Napoli. It's a wisp of cloud below the thin cloud string that connects two larger clouds. Marc and Josiah agreed that from a distance, the small cloud resembles a side profile of Mickey Mouse. Up close, I'm not so sure. What do you think?
As for the food at Via Napoli, Marc and Josiah declared the pizza to be good. In fact, they cleaned their plates!
I dropped in on Mike Scopa's All Ears® meet at Aloha Isle in Adventureland, Magic Kingdom. In the photo from left are All Ears® team members Mike Scopa, Michelle Scribner-MacLean, Mike Bachand and me.
Later, Mike, Michelle and I stood in front of a Hidden Mickey made of plates on the wall behind us at Kouzzina Restaurant. Michelle is in front of Mickey's "head."
That evening, I felt honored to be able to attend an IllumiNations dessert party sponsored by the WDW Moms Panel. Since the weather was suspect, we congregated inside the World ShowPlace Events Pavilion (the previous Millennium Village Building), which stands behind a gate between the United Kingdom and Canada Pavilions in World Showcase. From the left in the photo are Liam (Michelle's son), me, Michelle, Laura Spencer (a VIP with the WDW Moms Panel) and Mike Scopa.
We enjoyed ice cream and other delectable desserts, then were escorted to Showcase Plaza to be wowed (as always) by a spectacular IllumiNations fireworks show. In all, a memorable day for a Disney fan like me, wouldn't you agree?
