Day 33: July 30, 2005
The real Florida sign was torn down, the frame's in the lower left.
Ah, Sunny Kissimmee, where even the street lights are a festive purple. We
chill here for the night before we check into Disney.
Day 34: July 31, 2005
Our hotel--The Boardwalk.
Across the lake is the Yacht and Beach Club. Right past that, the entrance
to Epcot! This will turn out to be very convinient.
Sun sets over the Boardwalk and, beyond, the Dolphin.
Day 34: August 1, 2005
That afternoon Nops embarks on every Disney-goer over 21's dream: the World
Showcase Beer Tour. Here he is with a Chinese bronson. (we didn't have
pictures of Mexico or Norway, so of course we had to do this again the next
Rafiki jams on the bongos at the Outpost.
Uncle Hops gives the Outpost, which has no African beer, the big thumbs
The girls at Germany are even hotter than the Norwegians. We begin planning
our road trip to Scandenavia.
View of the big ball across the showcase lake.
We get shot-glass sized vino glasses at Italia. Nops is not a happy camper.
Always a good decision at America.
The Japanese drum players go nuts and rain clouds loom.
The rain starts and we take shelter at the beer place in Japan.
Look at it pour! Only a couple terribly drunk girls go without ponchos out
Uncle Hops has to have another beer to sit out the rain. Martinek just has
to pee at this point.
The skies clear and we enjoy Casa Beer at Morocco.
A French beer? Zis is unheard of! *nasal laugh!*
The sun starts to set over jolly old UK.
Bad form. Nops taps out, and we hit whatever rides are still open.
SPACESHIP EARTH BITCHES! UBADAI!
We get back in time for the fireworks!
Then head back to one of the bars on the Boardwalk, which happens to serve

The next day we return to Epcot to steal vomit bags from Mission Space.
On line for Test Track... represent.
Nops' cranium takes the magic out of the Kingdom.
Nops is Chosen, to bring this card to the front of the line on Space
Mountain. Fast Pass times depend on him.
Martinek's paltry score on Buzz Lightyear.
Spooky scenery outside Tower of Terror over at MGM. This is right before
T-neck breaks his bloody flip-flop slipping on wet ground.
We head back to the hotel to prepare for the night's drinking.
Epcot Beer Tour round 2: We start at France, with wine this time.
Nops dons a fez in Morocco.
A less-rainy Japan.
Nops enjoys another nice Samuel Adams.
More wine in Italy. There be no beer here.
We dine amidst the frisky fraulines, and one overly-frisky old house frau,
That Viking hat would make Raab Himself weep. We can do better. The hotties
a Norway will hook us up!
But first, some more Chinese beer.
Ya, the many faces of Norvay! Steer dat oil rig, Bjorn!
The fearless Viking discovers America, and Aztec ruins in Mexico.
Then it's on to Canada, where even the beer servers love hockey.
Another view of the frozen north.
"Bollox!" "Sod off! Not you."

We depart Disney and shack up with the grandparents of the T-neck for a few
