The world in a day I was thrilled with all that Disney World had to offer; loving the vibrancy and fun, but I really had no idea what to expect from the Epcot Park. It’s a Disney park that I’ve heard much about, but had no idea what it would be like. Epcot is all about celebrating human achievement through advances in technology and showcasing culture throughout the world.
So this was a theme park with an educational twist, you can still meet Disney characters as you mooch along, but with fewer rides. We were happy to eat plenty of internationally themed food and drink – yup, as many beers as you wish while walking in the sunshine all around the world.
I got to virtually visit countries such as Mexico, Japan, France and our dear old England – which is where we snapped these photographs. On the whole the countries depicted seemed quite authentic, but I’m not sure they pulled it off with England, the Disney take on our country amused me- it was utopian and fake …far too sunny, extraordinarily clean and incredibly quiet! Perhaps I’m biased by living in London?
We were joined at Epcot by our friends from back home Jenny and Wayne whose holiday in Florida overlapped ours for a few days. Don’t you love it when coincidence creates that perfect timing? We enjoyed the opportunity to hang out with them and met up on a number of days. Jenny posed with me for some blog snaps — you’ll see more of Jen soon, as you know Dave and I are getting married and next year and she’s doing me the honour of being one of my bridesmaids, exciting!!! I’m also working on some posts to share with y’all soon about how our wedding plans are coming along.
I think this was one of my favourite outfits from the holiday; the crop top I picked up from New Look and the skirt was picked out for me by Dave when we popped into Zara. I originally wanted a gingham skirt but when teamed with the crop top, it looked too cutesy and cow-girlish. As I’m a huge fan of bold floral prints, it was an easy sell. I’m sure it will get plenty of wear over the summer months. My bag perfectly matched this skirt and even my Polaroid camera complimented the print too, (another clever coincidence) – I mean talk about coordination or what!
