I turned 40 and the best way I could think to celebrate was a girls' weekend at Walt Disney World. We stayed at Pop Century. We were able to get to our rooms early at 12:30pm. I was a given celebrating buttons!
We hopped into our Disney Limo, aka Walt Disney World Resort Bus Transportation, to EPCOT right away. After we stopped to take pictures in front of Spaceship Earth, we headed for the World Showcase. One of my friends thought it would be fun to take a silly picture in ever country with a silly hat.
We started in Mexico. We grabbed a drink, some chips and guacamole at La Cave de Tequila bar wearing huge sombreros. My 14 year-old son was sad I didn't bring a sombrero home for him, silly kid.
We stopped for a Viking picture with a Troll in Norway and even stopped for a picture with bamboo hats in China. We got grapefruit beer and pretzels in Germany, of which I felt very proud to be paying homage to my German roots. We stopped in Italy and enjoyed our drinks by the fountain. We headed to The American Adventure and found scarves and sweaters that looked like the flag of our great country.
While we were enjoying getting drinks in the bar in Morocco, one of the girls spotted henna tattoo artists. So we all picked out a design and got painted, which was very fun. The Cast Members doing our artwork were very sweet. We moved on to China and I had my first sake! The best drink of the night came from France, a Grey Goose Vodka Grand Marnier Slush.
We went to England and had some hard ciders with fish and chips. We made a picnic on a corner and enjoyed ourselves in spite of guests probably thinking we were a bit nuts for having a picnic in the middle of EPCOT. Finally, we went to Canada for one last picture before finding a spot to watch Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. We stopped by Spaceship Earth for a last round of pictures before heading back to the Pop Century Resort.
The next day we experienced the Rollicking Raglan Brunch at Ragland Road before heading back home. Most of us loved the food and drinks there and especially enjoyed the Irish band and performers.
Turning 40 wasn't as hard as I thought it would be thanks to this great weekend. :)
