Flashback Friday: Robin Hood at Epcot

Sarah from Magical Days with the Mouse hosts Flashback Friday.  This week, I chose a picture from our family vacation in 1991.  We spent many days in the parks at WDW that year.  We even went to Typhoon Lagoon for the first time this year.  One vivid memory I have is the characters at Epcot.  Prior to this trip, I don't remember any characters being at Epcot.  I think this is why so many kids disliked that park.  There was nothing that reminded them of "Disney."  On this trip, we were walking from Future World to The World Showcase and a double decker bus started making its way from the Mexico side of the Lagoon.  Once it got closer, we heard the music and saw the characters!  They all exited the bus and started "dancing" at the Showcase Plaza.  We stood around for a while and within 15 minutes, we had met all of the characters!   We saw Minnie, Mickey, Robin Hood, Rodger Rabbit, Goofy, Friar Tuck, Donald Duck, Pooh, Chip and Dale, Panchito, King Louie, and Baloo. Amazing how times change!
