President's Week at Epcot

We had a short but wonderful visit to Epcot from February 24 to 26. I was concerned with possibly encountering large crowds due to President's Week, but was pleasantly surprised! Epcot was not at all crowded, and we were able to experience every attraction we wanted to with little wait, even Test Track and The Seas with Nemo and Friends (which are usually very crowded!). Because we had family visiting from out of town, we decided to try the 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite at the Sheraton Vistana Resort, Lake Buena Vista. We were very pleased with our choice - it was spacious, clean, had updated furnishings, and a lovely view of a lake with a fountain. The screened balcony was another nice plus. In fact, we are returning to the Vistana in June for another trip with family! Another highlight of our recent visit was our dinner at Jiko in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, one of our favorite restaurants. Our waiter surprised my 4-year-old daughter with a special "phone call" from Goofy - the look on her face was priceless!
