Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural / 3D / spatial sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join my family as we relive our exiting Epcot from almost the furthest point from the gate, enjoying the music and lights all the way.
Is anyone else loving his fall weather? Here in Kentucky, in the middle of the United States, the weather has been perfect. Mornings are cool. The afternoons warm up to that perfect 75°. It’s kind of like it was for us in Florida on our trip last December. Man, I want to go back so bad, even when you’re at the end of your day in the park and have to make it back to your hotel, it’s still so special. Coincidentally, that’s what today’s memory is about
Today, we are at the end of our adventures in Epcot on a beautiful Sunday in December 2021. Night has arrived. The countries are illuminated so beautifully. It’s that perfectly magical Florida winter’s evening in Epcot.
If you remember from Memory 283, we got to experience the celebration party that is the Harmonious Fireworks show. If you also remember, we had gotten some crepes but hadn’t had time to eat them yet. So we’ll find a bench behind us on the esplanade between the France and Morrocco pavilions and begin to dig in while we enjoy the post-fireworks-show music playing on a very nearby speaker. The crepes were ok, we’ve definitely had better, but I’ll be honest, they maybe were better when they were fresh, and not 20 minutes old. Once we finish, we don’t hop up quite yet, because the crowds are still heavy, and they are packed into the narrow walkways created through the construction going on around Spaceship Earth. After a bit, we’ll begin the trek around, past the France, UK, and Canada Pavilions, and stop by the Christmas Tree to look more closely at some of the ornaments. Susie had spotted one that looked like the old Illuminations globe, so I had to see that one. We’ll continue then, through the construction walls, under Spaceship Earth (again admiring the lights and updates), and finally out of the gates and into the parking lot. If you stick around to the very end, you might just hear what park will be up next for our family.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I would suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now that you have your headphones on, join me as we get to relive when my family wrapped our day up at Epcot.
