The Halloween Spirit at Disney Springs

We took a last-minute trip with some of the boys, to Disney Springs. They had “organized” a big group of kids to go to Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens, but due to a lot of confusion and mis-communication, their plans fell through. They were bummed. Since it was Sweetest Day, Marcos and I were looking for something to do ourselves, so we thought we’d all go to Disney Springs.

It wasn’t Howl-O-Scream, or even a Disney park, but they had fun. We all had a good time. After spending a little too much time together, We gave each of them money for dinner and snacks, and let them take off on their own.

I love Disney. You don’t even have to go into the parks, to find the magic. The Halloween Spirit at Disney Springs was abundant, and really got me into a festive mood.

We did a little shopping, a little eating and just generally enjoyed the atmosphere.

I love how they styled these lanterns. You can always find good decorating ideas at Disney.

As always, my 5-year-old alter ego showed up, and I wanted to buy everything. But, I was pretty good.

One of my favorite jewelery stores is Uno de 50, so my husband surprised me with a little something for Sweetest Day.

I also love this collection of Talismans from Pyrrha, at Something Silver. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since we won the lottery. It’s still fun to look!

They just opened Anthropologie! Seriously… Can the shopping get any better? I hope not, I don’t have a big enough wallet.

I love their displays and vignettes! The candles on the chair are a little too much, but I love the cloches!

For dinner, Marcos and I wanted to try the new Mexican restaurant, Frontera Cocina, and the boys wanted to go to the T-REX cafe. It worked for me!

I’m not big on “authentic” “gourmet” Mexican, but I have to say… This place was OK. And that means you will probably love it!

The drinks were stronger than you typically get at Disney… That’s a plus!

And… They allowed us to substitute their soft corn tortillas, with soft flour tortillas. We actually got a combo of both. (I’m not a corn tortilla type of gal.) Another check mark for them.

The mashed potatoes were the star of the whole meal. What a pleasant surprise. I don’t know if that reflects well on the actual entrees, but to repeat, I like typical “Americanized” Mexican food. They were out of this world! I even asked for the recipe (which they didn’t have… bummer.) I would go back, just for the mashed potatoes.

Unfortunately for my husband, I found a new store to add to my list of favorites, Sugarboo & Co.. Sigh…

There aren’t many places to sit, but we managed to snag one of those standing tables.

We toasted the end of Sweetest Day with Champagne and Canella Peach Bellini.

It was a nice day. Is there ever a bad day at Disney?
