Disney’s Grand Floridian Easter Egg Display, Magic Kingdom: New Fantasyland from Contemporary Roof and Ground, Storybook Circus Water Tower Re-theme and More – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we went to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort (below, left) to see the beautiful Easter Egg Display in the lobby (below, right). This is the first year of the lobby display, though the decorated eggs have been placed in restaurants during the Easter holiday for the last 15 years. Each egg is hollow milk chocolate, weighing 9 – 12 pounds and is 16 – 20 inches tall!

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2012 Opening Day Full Coverage, Future World, World Showcase – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We spent a full day yesterday at Epcot for opening day of this years Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. The sky was beautiful for much of the day – turning a little grey as the day progressed. The mushrooms from Fantasia (below, left) are outside of the park, which is unusual for Festival topiaries. Sorcerer Mickey cuts a grand figure as he stands atop the entrance display with smoke billowing (below, right).

Magic Kingdom One More Disney Day Highlights: Mickey & Minnie in PJ’s, Special Bakery Items, Main Street Vehicles, Castle Dance Party, Sunrise and More! – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We decided a couple of days before “One More Disney Day” at the Magic Kingdom (below, left) that we’d attend for at least a few hours in the evening. We arrived at about 8pm, figuring we’d stay until 2am or so. It turned out, we stayed all night! Friends of ours had been there since 6am, and received free commemorative Mickey Ears (limited to the first 3000 guests) and all guests received One More Disney Day buttons (below, right).

Epcot International Flower And Garden festival 2012 Preview, Topiary, Flower Quilt Planting, Butterfly Tent, More – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Epcot is in full bloom as the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival takes shape! Denise went to Epcot yesterday, only expecting the flower quilt and other Festival progression – definitely not expecting topiaries and displays to be up already. A rose is shown in the foreground of the Imagination pavilion (below, left), and the vibrant colors of the large flower quilt are evident (below, right).

Summer Nightastic Preview, Main Street Electrical Parade Returns and Summer Nightastic Fireworks Show Premiere – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We had such a great time last night as the Main Street Electrical Parade returned to the Magic Kingdom! We saw this version at Disney’s California Adventure last year (see video HERE) where it was called “Disney’s Electrical Parade“, but it’s not the same as seeing it where I first did as a child in 1977. The Tinker Bell float (below, left) was new for last year, with 25,000 points of light. Mickey’s train announces the name of the parade (below, right), though it wasn’t changed for Summer Nightastic to the Main Street Electrical Parade moniker.

Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival 2010: Part Two, World Showcase – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Here is the second part of our Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival update. A few days ago I posted photos of Future World from opening day, and we went back twice over the past few days to get pictures from World Showcase (as well as the Festival Center). You can see Spaceship Earth (below, left) beyond one of the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival signs. A windmill (below, right) helps complete the Mickey and Minnie topiary set at the front of World Showcase (below, right).
