Epcot Flower & Garden Festival 2011 Preview, Magic Kingdom New Fantasyland Update – Photos and Video (Now in HD)

Hi everyone!

Epcot is looking beautiful as topiaries and flowers are added for the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! A new topiary set went up in the lawn behind Spaceship Earth, Mickey and Minnie having a picnic with Pluto (below left and right). Pluto holds a kite spool in his mouth, but the kite is stuck in the tree!

There are now two flower quilts, one close to Journey Into Imagination (below, left) and the other is closer to Mouse Gear (below, right). The floating flower planters are now part of the scenery!

The Disney fairies are now meeting guests in their new Pixie Hollow home. There is a times guide (below, left) to look at, letting you know which fairies will be available at each time. Tinker Bell and Terence greet young guests (below, right).

There are four of the Disney fairies available to meet – Terence and Tinker Bell (below, left) and Vidia and Rosetta (below, right). Fawn is not part of the current lineup.

Vidia and Rosetta kneel with a young girl (below, left). There is an exit pathway which leads back out into the main area (below, right).

Video #1 – New Epcot Fairy Pixie Hollow Meet & Greet 2/17/11 Vidia, Rosetta, Tinker Bell, Terence Disney World – Vidia, Rosetta, Terence, and Tinker Bell are meeting fans in their new Pixie Hollow location at Epcot!

Flowers are brightening up the park (below, left). There is a new and much larger butterfly tent this year, where the sculpture garden once stood (below, right).

Bambi, Thumper and Flower are in the Butterfly Tent (below left and right). When the pictures were taken, Thumper and Flower were still wrapped partially in plastic.

The Norway troll is back (below, left), and some of the zodiac animals in China are out, but not yet any of the signs that accompany them (below, right).

Lady and the Tramp again grace the Italy pavilion (below, left). Mickey and Minnie greet you at the American Adventure! (below, right)

If you venture back further into the American pavilion, you’ll find Goofy, Donald and Pluto in a garden walkway that shows how to use everyday items (like a bed) as planters (below, left). Victoria Gardens in Canada is beautiful as well (below, right).

Video #2 – Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Preview – Topiaries of Mickey and Minnie, Pluto, More 2/17/11 – The Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is still two weeks away, but lots of topiaries are appearing!

Magic Kingdom Update: We rode the Walt Disney World railroad again to check out the former Mickey’s Toontown Fair, and stopped to take photos from the train station (below, left) down Main Street USA. Donald’s Boat can be seen from the train (below, right), though the fence is now hard to see through.

We found a tribute to the former El Pirata Y El Perico inside of the newly named Tortuga Tavern restaurant (below left and right). There are a couple of signs that haven’t been changed out yet in the restaurant as well.

We rode Dumbo The Flying Elephant to take some photos and video of the new Fantasyland (below left and right).

For those who’ve asked, the first part of the New Fantasyland is supposed to open next year (2012) with the rest in 2013 (below left and right).

Video #3 – New Fantasyland Expansion Look from Dumbo 2/16/11 Magic Kingdom Walt Disney World – The view of Fantasyland from Dumbo The Flying Elephant, Walt Disney World on January 31st, 2011. This is meant for pausing to get the best view of the buildings!
