We finally got to the festival this past weekend! So much love for this event and all of the artists who were there. It was rainy & chilly which made for a perfect, crowd free day.
We started out with lunch naturally. Poutine from Le Cellier in Canada. Oh. My. Yum. We may have also gotten a whiskey flight. And a dessert or two. 😉
And then made our way back to Future World. We stopped and chatted a bit with Jackie Huang and bought some small postcards of her artwork to have signed. Day made 2 hours in.
One of the coolest parts of the festival was the giant paint by number. You get a small tub of Gillden paint with your number on it (I got pink of course) and a brush. It was too cool and I basically wish I could have taken the whole thing home with me. The best part was when we left later that night and the whole thing was almost complete.
This cutie 😉
Those colors. major swooning happening over here.
I took pictures of the trash bins and the cast member laughed at me. I explained that I just had too.
AP check-in at Innovations East. This was super neat. We got an email a few weeks back telling us about reserved seating for the Disney on Broadway Concert Series. I jumped all over that. More a little later in this post. Also in Innovations East you’ll find Animation Academy! We drew Mickey of course and I was seriously missing an eraser.
The Odyssey Festival Showplace held several seminars throughout the weekend. I totally lucked out with the Photography 101: Lighting and Perspective seminar led by Tom Smutny. The timing was so perfect and I was a super happy lady.
Broadway! Kerry Butler & Kevin Massey performed several songs from Beauty & the Beast, Tarzan, Newsies, and Aladdin. Totally worth it with the reserved AP seating. We didn’t have to wait in line or anything.
And all too soon our day at Epcot was over. So…. we went to Magic Kingdom to get our pirate side on. 😉
