Trip Report Tuesday // WDW Day 8 {Part Two}

Welcome to another Trip Report Tuesday post!  Today I'll be sharing our final evening at Epcot.  It seems like this trip is flying by as quickly within this blog series as it did in real life!   

Day 8 - Friday, October 23, 2015 // Part Two

We began our evening using a fun gift that we received from my amazing, Disney loving Aunt Ann, Uncle Kenny, and Cousin Emily when they dropped us off at the airport!  

They created a very special surprise for us to enjoy in Epcot and we had a ball with it!  I plan to devote an entire post to it, so stay tuned for that soon!

ShellieMay Arrives at Walt Disney World!

You may remember from our last trip that we're Duffy the Disney Bear fans!

Imagine our excitement when we heard rumors prior to our trip that ShellieMay, the darling Disney Bear previously sold exclusively in the Japanese Disney Parks, would be available at Walt Disney World!  We weren't sure if these rumors were true or if she'd make an appearance during our trip, but we were hopeful.  On this magical evening she made her first appearance at Epcot in Mouse Gear!  What a fun surprise that was! 

Little One with one of her most adorable and huggable souvenirs from this trip!  

Spaceship Earth

Like a grand and miraculous spaceship, our planet has sailed through the universe of time; and for a brief moment we have been amount its passengers.

Eating our way Around the World at Epcot's 20th Food and Wine Festival
One of our favorite things about fall at WDW is Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival!  We couldn't resist sharing a few of our favorites on this final fabulous evening there! 

Kalua Pork Slider with Sweet and Sour Dole Pineapple Chutney and Spicy Mayonnaise
One of my personal favorites found once again at the Hawaii booth.

Seared Sea Scallop with Spinach-Cheddar Gratin and Crispy Bacon from the Scotland Booth

Black Pepper Shrimp with Sichuan Noodles from the China Booth - which Jason almost forgot to photograph!  It DID come with more than one piece of shrimp! Ha!

Another one of my all-time festival faves, the Korean Barbecue Short Rib with Steamed Rice and Cucumber Kimchi!

Croissant Doughnut with Cinnamon and Sugar from the Refreshment Port

Pineapple Dole Whips from the Refreshment Port

Epcot is always so gorgeous at night!

So long (for now) Epcot!

Our final evening at Animal Kingdom Lodge

Pool time // Night Vision Googles // A late night pizza party at (our DVC) home

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'm looking forward to sharing our final day at WDW with you next Tuesday!  It will include a fantastic farewell breakfast, fun shopping at Disney Springs, and some souvenirs I'm still gushing over to this day!
