Disney Magic

This past weekend I got to have a magical weekend at Disney World. Hubby and I tagged along with his mom to a conference at The Swan. We arrived in Lake Buena Vista Thursday evening and checked into the hotel, after a brief mix up with our reservations we were in our room freshening up after our drive. I changed out of my yucky travel clothes and into one of the cute outfits I made for the trip. 
Joann's had a sale on quilting cotton a few weeks ago so I bought this adorable black and white polka dot fabric. Mom and I cut/sewed this skirt in an afternoon, I was thankful for the help since I really stink at hemming circle skirts. Oh, and this skirt even has pockets!
 Since we arrived late in the afternoon we decided to hold off on using our Disney tickets till we could enjoy full days of fun so we went shopping at Disney Springs.

Shopping works up an appetite so we stopped at the pub for fish and chips and a Guinness.
On our way back to the hotel we spotted this fleet of amphibious cars and they were too adorable to not stop and snap a few pictures.
We got back to our room just in time to watch the Epcot and Hollywood firework shows through our window. We turned in early so we could get a early start the next day. 
Yes, this was only for 3 people
Hubby's mom's conference didn't start till after noon so we all took the water taxi from the hotel to Epcot. We arrived shortly after opening so some of the countries weren't open yet but France was so we had a lovely breakfast at the outside tables while we watched the sparrows eagerly scooping up crumbs.

I had eaten one of the muffins I brought with me before we left the hotel so I just had a plain croissant and a cappuccino glacé.
Although we didn't plan it, our visit happened to be during the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot.

We visited the UK next and since the park was almost empty I didn't have to wait in line to play in the phone booths.

I almost missed Peter since he was perched on top of the building above Capt Hook.
 The Hundred Acre Wood pals were some of my favorite topiaries, Pooh looked so soft and cuddly.
 Of course I made this outfit too. I got this fabric from a friend when they were clearing out their stash and I saved it with the hopes of making a Minnie Dress to wear to Disney. I made bows for all my outfits I took, I used Velcro fasteners so they could switch out quickly and easily.

 We stopped in Mexico to do some shopping and enjoy the orchids.

Someday I hope that Hubby and I will get to travel to Mexico to see the step pyramids such as El Castillo in Chichen Itza.

My real reason for not getting a fancier pastry at France was I was waiting for the Norwegian offerings. Sadly with the renovations at the Norwegian pavilion it seems that they cut back in their pastry shop, they didn't have as large of selection as last time when we were there. After much hemming and hawing I finally decided on this berry cream puff and Hubby split it with me.
I have a confession, I adore Frozen. The day we left I even woke up with Do You Want to Build a Snow Man in my head.
Team Anna all the way!

Stay tuned for more of our trip.
