It really was a great way to start the day! Our ADR was for 8:00am and the dining room was less than half full. By the time we left it was filling up though.

Once we got to Epcot we started our day with a photopass stop and then on to Ellenís Energy Adventure. Then we headed into Mousegears for some shopping. Jeff bought a goofy t-shirt and I bought a mug and a magnet.











By this time it was almost 11:00 and we made our way over to WS to see a few more holiday storytellers. The Canadian lumberjack was not one of the better presentations, but we listened through to the end. Just didnít feel the need to take any photos of him or with him!















Then we went through the Canadian Gardens and in to see O Canada. This is always one of our favorites.

We stopped at the coffee kiosk for a cup of coffee for Jeff and a Mocha Latte for me. Total was $10.64. As we passed the UK it was time for another show by the World Showcase Players. But when they wheeled out the cart we saw it was A Christmas Carol again, so we decided to skip it.

We stopped for a bit in France to watch the French Waiter show, and then headed down to American Adventure. I watched the Voices of Liberty while Jeff browsed around in the gallery. Then we saw the American Adventure, where I am pleased to report that I stayed awake for the entire show!









Jeff had mentioned when we passed Morocco that one of these trips weíll have to try eating at Marrakesh. And since we didnít have any plans for lunch, we made a spur of the moment decision to try it right then! We checked at the podium and they sent us right back to the restaurant!





We decided to split a meal since we werenít real hungry. We ordered the Sultanís Sampler which was a nice way to sample a variety of different things. Jeff ordered a beer and I think I got a soda, which they never charged me for. For dessert we ordered the Moroccan Symphony, again a variety of items. Our server was Malika and she was attentive and very helpful. Having never eaten there before we were a bit unsure about some of the choices and she is the one who suggested we order a sampler. About halfway through the meal the entertainment started. This included two men playing instruments and then a belly dancer. I thought Iíd heard that the dancer usually invites the children up to dance, but she didnít do that. But still it was enjoyable.















A picture with Malika.



The total with discount was $37.12

After lunch we walked by UK and caught another of the World Showcase Players skits. This time they were doing King Arthur and the Holy Grail.





Then we headed back to BLT for some R&R.

Marrakesh had been on our "to do" list for a while, but always seemed to get pushed back. So, it was good to finally try it!
