100 Things to Do in Disney #78, #79 & #80 ~ 3Gs of Disney

Today I am sharing #80, #79 and #78 in our countdown series 100 Things to Do in Disney as part of Destination Disney at Heidi's Ramblings, Reflections & Reviews.  This week's topic is the "G"s of Disney, and surprisingly, all three are my picks for the countdown!

#80 ~ The Great Movie Ride is one of my favorite things to do in Disney's Hollywood Studios.  But as we were creating this list of things to do in Disney, I realized I have not experienced this since 2004, our last trip before we had children.  Because of a few elements of the attraction, we have not brought the children through because we felt there were some scary parts that our kids can wait until they are older to experience.  For this trip, we still probably won't bring the children on, but I hope to sneak away at some point during our DHS day to take another ride through.  I just love movies, and many of my favorites are found along the way.

World Showcase

#79 ~ The Germany Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase is probably the pavilion I could spend the most time browsing.  Though we won't be having dinner at Biergarten this trip, it is one of our favorite family dining spots.  This pavilion also houses one of my favorite shops in all of Walt Disney World.  Volskunnst has a wide variety of goods from beautifully detailed clocks to German beer steins.  Though we do not normally make a purchase in this shop, it is definitely a place I visit every trip.  The German Pavilion is also a great place to grab a drink and a snack with their German beers and pretzels.

France Pavilion
#78 ~ The Grey Goose Citron Lemonade Slush is one drink I must have very trip.  This is available at the kiosk in the France Pavilion called Les Vins des Chefs de France.  They have a selection of French wines, champagnes, beers and specialty drinks, though this slush is my favorite!  My friend, Melissa over at Disney on Wheels, may just have me convinced to also try the Grand Marnier Orange Slush too!  (That link will take you to her blog and her thoughts on the Grand Marnier Orange Slush, along with a photo of it!)

Make sure you head over to Heidi's Destination Disney to see all the great "G"s of Disney everyone has shared!

Thanks, Heidi! I am glad you kept the link in open for the week! With all the things that have gone on here at home, I feel like I am finally getting back on track, so you should see me back to joining in every week! :-) Thanks for hosting!

Fun list! I am really enjoying your series. It is getting me excited for our trip 30 days! Whoohoo!

Melissa - we will have to grab some slushes from the France Pavilion, get them over to DHS and sip them as we ride through the Great Movie Ride! LOL!

Jackie - I am so excited for you! 30 days is going to go by so quickly. I think once my kids are in school, it is going to fly by for us too!

Great G's!! Germany is also my favorite pavilion. I have yet to try either of these slushes... they both sound delisious though!

Although I am not German, Germany is one of my favorites as well! We LOVE Biergarten!!! I will be trying the Citron Grey Goose drink in October for sure..I have been reading all about it and it sounds stellar. :0)
