Once again, MASH Travelers played "name that country" as they experienced the world culture side of EPCOT.
Spaceship Earth took them on a review of 7th grade social studies with a review of contributions world cultures have had over time on communication! Tricye pointed out the focus on languages and writing and we toured the attraction that include more animatronics.
This year Soarin' was open again! MASH Travelers loved flying around the world experiencing many wonders! Even the scents change as we travel, Danaihja pointed out! We could spell grass as we joined the African Elephants and the sea as we returned to the tropics!
Travelers got a taste of cultures too, enjoying the kiosks from the Garden and Flower festival. They samples macaroons and crepes from France, "Frushi" from Japan, Brisket from the USA, Carmel popcorn from Germany, and much more!
American Adventure featured the story of America. And reviewed several parts of 8th grade social studies, while featuring more animatronics.
Each group experiences something unique as they travel around the room. Some groups met mariachi performers in Mexico, Vikings in Norway, Princess Aurora in France, watched Sergio the mime in Italy, traveled through France, Canada, and China through the theater, and saw acrobats from China.
We had to take cover from some rain, but we ended the night with IllumiNations Firework Show! By the end of Day 3, groups walked 10+ miles taking in the technology and culture from around the world!
