Strolling EPCOT’s World Showcase at Walt Disney World

IMG_6684-Friendship-boat-rampCan you believe it’s March already? At the end of the month, the first quarter of the new year will be over, and we won’t be able to call it “new” any more! We’re also that much closer to my next trip to Walt Disney World, which is coming up in May. Today being Ruby Tuesday, I thought we should take a look around the World Showcase at EPCOT and see what sort of red stuff we can find. It’s never too difficult to find red stuff at Walt Disney World.

Why, here’s some red stuff now – check out the border around the signage for the Friendship boat dock. And here comes the boat – it’s got some red stuff on it, too. You know, I think I’ve only taken the Friendship boats across the lagoon maybe ONCE, but I’ve taken them lots of times to get back to the Swan or Dolphin hotels – “Swolphin”, for the initiated 😉 – late at night when I’m tired.


Here’s one of those pieces of architectural eye-candy. This red arch can be found at the China pavilion. Owing to the fact that you can position a photo so the Spaceship Earth geosphere, aka the big golf ball is visible through the arch, this is a very popular photo spot. However, I’ve not figured out how to take a photo here at night. After dark, the “golf ball” is lit up but there’s not enough light on the arch to make a complete picture. You either get the ball or the arch in focus and visible, but not both. I’m willing to take direction, so if anyone’s got any ideas, please comment!”

IMG00802-EPCOT-Japan-Sushi-SakeWell, the sun’s going down now, and I’m a little hungry. What say we stop in Japan for a little sushi and some sake? I normally don’t do sushi, but this is crab, so if I close my eyes I can pretend it is steamed and not raw 😉 As I recall, the sake was a little on the watery side, but I do like the way the red wrapper for the chopsticks is reflecting on the glass in the waning light of late afternoon. Kampai! (yeah, I googled – that’s like “Salut!”, only in Japanese).

  1. Some nice red finds there Tink! I like how there are just little bits of red here and there. Well, except that arch. That makes such a nice frame. Well done.

  2. Oh, I think I would like to go there 😀
    This looks great, not crowded like I imagined it would be.
    Lovely shots!

  3. Hi Tink,
    Loved that you visited my new blog! Glad you liked my Ruby shot too.

    Your photos are great and I especially like the reflection in the glass.


  4. The Chinese pagoda is classic, in red as it should be. I wonder about the sushi – would Disney take the chance to not steam it first, because it is their iteration of authentic…I prefer steamed fish on my sushi, thank you!

  5. How absolutely perfect that you blogged about the Friendship boat dock because I just awarded you with a “Friends” badge. Swing by, pick it up and don’t worry about passing it on. Just want you to know you’re considered a friend!

    Closing my eyes would not fool me into eating that stuff. Ewwww!

  6. What a fun post! That sushi plate looks inviting. Epcot is an awesome place.

    Thanks for stopping by at mine!

  7. Beautiful photos. I would love to come here with my family on holiday. I never have eaten sushi before, but it looks delicious. Best wishes 🙂

  8. Love the wide varieties of red tones in these photos. Fascinating shots! They are the closest I will ever get to Disneyland!

  9. My favorite is the red wrapper for the chopsticks. Golf Ball lit up sounds fun to view. Happy Ruby Tuesday, even now that it’s Weds.

  10. I was guessing California Roll on this one. But it’s hard to tell from this angle. Looks mighty tasty though!


  11. Wow Epcot I have never been and always dreamed of going! what a wonderful post for RT…you have a lot of red!!

    I hope you are having a good week!!:-)
