Magic in the Mist

While visiting Epcot’s World Showcase again last night, the weather was off and on rain showers all day. The temperature was only around 78º but the “feels like” was at 105º due to the humidity.

The fog had started to hang in the air, lingering like a shroud and making us feel as if we were actually in the Japanese countryside for a moment. It was beautiful and serene.

It’s these little moments that make visiting the parks in outrageous humidity worthwhile. I love stopping to appreciate them. Have you had any special experiences like this away from the hustle and bustle? I’d love to hear about them.

  • Nice misty shots. Those are cool!

  • Thanks! It was a wonderful case of being in the right place at the right time as the mist dissipated right after we took these pictures. 🙂

  • Thanks, Reuben! It’s nice to find these non-theme-park-looking experiences every now and then isn’t it? 🙂
