EPCOT – The Seas and Soarin’

Our second day at EPCOT started at The Seas. Last time we came here Son was in a stroller, he was mesmerized by the oversized reef at the front of the building and the pesky seagulls shouting – straight out of Nemo. Some things never change….. We saw Mr Ray, Crush and Nemo all outside…
