It’s always a challenge to find gifts for people who don’t like to accumulate more possessions, so, as we shared in the last post, we like to give each other the gift of an experience.
We thought it would be hard to top the fun we had sampling our way through Epcot, but our daughter came up with yet another great gift idea for our last Disney trip – our very own “Magical” app!
Now, it does help if your daughter is in the midst of getting a PhD in computer science for this gift. But, it also helps that she knows a lot about Disney. This year, she made an Android app that led us on a scavenger hunt through Epcot so we could experience things we might not usually notice.
We have been to Epcot many times, but never even noticed the first stop on the scavenger hunt – the Coca Cola tasting area where you could sample sodas from around the world. Let’s just say, the Beverly was unique.
Other stops included everything from participating in the Fiesta de Navidad in Mexico to guessing which of the totem poles in Canada was wood.
The coordinates were all programmed in for each stop (including to the wooden totem pole) and all we had to do was follow the arrow.
Looks like the signal is strong in the back yard. That must mean we need another trip!
