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. πŸ˜‰

And then made our way back to Future World. We stopped and chatted a bit with Jackie HuangΒ 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.

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.
