Disney Vacation 2008: EPCOT – Garden Grill Restaurant

Disney Vacation 2008 – EPCOT – Garden Grill

While we were at EPCOT we ate at the Garden Grill, which is a revolving restaurant inside of “The Land” Pavilion.  The food theme is natural and traditional American farm food.

Disney Tip: Some Specialty Restaurants include character visits  – which means you can kill two birds with one stone – you get a great meal and your kids get to meet the characters (without standing in long lines) and get their autographs.  Make sure that you make reservations way in advance – it may be impossible to make a reservation on the day that you are there.

While we were in this restaurant I actually felt like we had gone back in time a little bit, which is funny as the pavilion is supposed to foods and farming in the future.  Therefore, I chose a 60’s theme print that actually reminded me of a plastic picnic table cover that my family had when I was a kid.

This page doesn’t particularly stand out to me but there are two scrapbooking techniques that I want to point out:

  • The first is that the Title block on the left hand page is actually a picture that I took at the entrance to the restaurant.   This is an easy way to title a page, but also serves as an easy way to remember from your photographs of the names of the places that you are going.  I make it a habit to always take pictures of names of places and historical markers so that I can remember the story.
  • The second is the journaling block on the right hand page.  If you look carefully at the frame around the block you will notice that it is actually a photograph of the painted mural in the restaurant.  This is another thing that I do when we are visiting unique places – taking pictures of the “feel” of the location so that I can use those photographs to help recreate the feel on the page – occasionally they actually end up on the page themselves!
