Met some friends around 8am in the lobby and then we all headed to Epcot for the day. Arrived ahead of schedule at the International Gateway and had to wait until 8:30 when they opened it. Walked to the front of the park with the goal to use a 9:15am FastPass+ for Spaceship Earth. We arrived early and there was no line so walked on and were exiting by 9:15. Roamed around Future World a bit and made our way over to the Land. Went for a cruise on Listen to the Land and then sat around and visited for about 20 minutes waiting for our Soarin FastPass+ time. After Soarin walked over to visit Journey Into Imagination but it had a 25 minute wait. So turned around and found a shady spot to wait about 15 minutes for our Nemo FastPass+. Visited Nemo and looked around the main tank a bit. Used the app to take our unused Spaceship Earth and move it to Imagination starting in 5 minutes.. so finished up the Living Seas and walked over and onto Imagination. Decided it was lunch time so the group made their way over to the Electric Umbrella and I stopped by a FastPass+ kiosk to get Illuminations for this evening. After lunch caught a performance of the Jammitors then took a Friendship Launch over to Germany. Walked through Germany, Italy and into the American Adventure. Watched a performance by the Voices of Liberty then the American Adventure show. Walked through Japan, Morocco and France stopping for Impressions de France and a little of Ribab Fusion. Continued on to the UK where the rest of my group decided to head back to the room to rest a bit. I carried on to Canada to catch a set by the Canadian Holiday Voyageurs. Then doubled back to the UK to watch Quickstep. After their performance made my way to China for the Jeweled Dragon Acrobats. Caught the barges for Illuminations coming out then headed for the Liberty Inn and dinner. After eating watched the 6:45pm Candelight and then strolled around World Showcase and into Future World by Test Track. Walked around the East side of the park and made my way to the front to take some night pictures. Eventually ended up in the FastPass+ viewing area for Illuminations to cap off the evening. Walked upstream through the exiting masses to reach the International Gateway and exit leave the park after 13.5 hours returning to the Beach Club to call it a night.
