Boathouse Restaurant at Disney Springs in Orlando FloridaLast night we went for a stroll round Downtown Disney to see how they are getting on with the transformation into Disney Springs, it’s completion is not due for another year (Spring 2016). I’m pleased to report that the main multi-storey car park was open, we parked on the 4th floor in the hope of a view, but there wasn’t much of one!

Amphicars at Disney Springs in Orlando FloridaThe roads in are complete, but we were guided out past Cirque du Soleil, which added a few minutes onto the journey, as the way out hasn’t been finished yet. The walkways into Downtown Disney aren’t complete yet either with long billboards sectioning off areas whilst the building work continues.

The Proper Pie Company – Davenport, Florida

Meat Pie

The Proper Pie Company is located on Highway 27, just 1.25 miles south of the I-4, a hidden gem to both tourists and residents. As the name suggests, this English style bakery whips up over 200 freshly baked pies a day.

With over twenty different flavors, from the traditional to the eccentric, there is a treat in store for every member of the family. Customary English favorites such as Steak and Guinness, Cornish pasties, and Steak and Kidney fill the shelves of the deli. They are accompanied by some more unusual, yet equally mouth-watering varieties like Chicken Curry, Shepherd’s Pie in a Pie, Chicken Cordon Bleu, and Beef Stroganoff, just to name a few. All of the pies can be left in the fridge for 4 to 5 days, and they all freeze well.
