Happy Hump Day Lovelies!

If you follow me on IG or Facebook, you’ve seen this picture of Ariel’s Tour of the Kingdom Blue Dress that I made for Abigail :

…but no action pics with her in it, so today’s blog post will be jammed packed with plenty of action pics! But before we get there, let me just say that sewing this particular dress was very challenging, but thus far, the most rewarding! I know, I say that about almost all the dresses but this one takes the cake – for now! haha! I did not have a pattern for the dress, so I basically had to wing it. What I did do, was create a mini inspiration board of pictures of Ariel in the dress (from the movie) to help keep me on track as I was sewing. I think it really did help.

The yoke and bodice took 3 tries to perfect that the skirt just one. The yoke is lined and there is an invisible zipper at the back.

Now for action pics of Abigail’s Tour of the Disney Kingdom! (haha, see what I did there? 😉 )  The tour started with her fascination of water fountains…I guess it must be weird for a mermaid to see water on land huh? (haha)

After a little sight seeing, we decided to map out our day so we could make the most of it.

So we hopped over to Disney’s California Adventure Park and headed straight to Ariel’s Undersea Adventure Ride. I think we’ve ridden it maybe a dozen times already.

After the ride, we had a spot a mermaid scavenger hunt…..she won…lol

By this time, we were all a little hungry so we headed over to Ariel’s Grotto for some lunch!

What’s special about Ariel’s Grotto is that you get the chance to meet Ariel in “real life” as you wait to be seated at your table. She was so totally stoked!

The food was exceptionally good.

I think Abigail enjoyed her dessert the most…lol

Another fun fact is that this particular restaurant features guest appearances by the other Disney Princesses’ while you eat….she was floored to have met Rapunzel and Belle.

After lunch, we headed back over to Disneyland. She spotted the Disney Castle…

Then we headed off to Frontierland to find The Golden Horseshoe. We were told we could eat a yummy ice-cream sundae and watch a live show at the same time! We got good seats for the show, unfortunately we came while they were on break. (wonk wonk wonk!) However, the ambience was cute; much like a old westerns show, and the ice-cream sundae was delicious! It was big enough for all of us.

After the our treat, we took the Train/trolley to TOON TOWN! My favorite part of Disney! (Was a school day for big brother so he couldn’t come)

She drove some cars.

And trespassed on the White Rabbit’s Property…hahaha! She kept knocking on the door, and even though I told her it was not a real door, she insisted that somebody HAD to be home! So she hopped the fence, knocked at the window and kept hollering “HELLO! HELLO!! lol It was quite hilarious! lol

After we took a tour of Donald Duck’s House boat…

And then a tour of Mickey’s House where  we ended the day with hugs from Mickey.

The day was lovely, albeit crowded, and we can’t wait to go back again! We have annual passes so we’ll be going very frequently, and I might just keep sewing for the occasion. =) We shall see! That’s it for today guys! Talk to you soon! XOXO
