All this love for EO is scaring me. The only thing good about it is making fun of the cheesy 80'sness of it.

We headed into the garden center and explored part of it. There was a session going on, so we felt like we needed to be quiet.







I declared it was time to shop!!!




One of these little guys now lives on the top of my desk at work. It’s a constant reminder of this trip, I love it!



I thought the displays were just adorable!




This photo just made me realize I didn’t buy the tote bag I wanted…




I bought myself a set of ears that I had been staring at for weeks. The man behind the counter offered to cut off the tags, but otherwise was downright rude. You would have thought I was asking him to cut his arm off when I asked to have it shipped back to the room. He threw the pen at the desk. He apologized for that and was more pleasant from then on out. Anywho I got my gnome, an new set of ears, a mini gift card, and a few other fun things!

I also picked up a passport that I could use to get stamps throughout the festival, and it included a listing of all the displays to visit.

Here are the new ears!



I got lots of comments on them through the week. Most of the Cast members didn’t seem to know that they were for sale at Epcot!
A very nice lady saw us trying to take a photo with Pluto in the back ground and offered to take this for us!




We strolled by the Buzz topiary







Our next stop was the “For the Birds” area, right outside of Mouse Gears




They had these super neat bird houses




And a special garden with flowers that were specially planted to attract birds.

Sounds like the CM wasn't much of an EO fan either.

I do like the ears though. I've never seen those before. It is kind of cool that they have something like that to commemorate the F&G Festival.

I love them! Plus they fit the theme at Animal Kingdom, so they got lots of wear!

Yeah he was not having a magical day.....

I love those ears too, I am glad I had the chance to get them, they only sell them during the festival!

I thought the whole bird area was really neat!

Sorry for the long time no post guys, I work in an office that is INSANE this time of year!

After seeing the bird garden, we headed up the path that would lead us to the butterfly garden, but first we got to stop by Radiator Springs!




This area was so cute!







We also got to walk by the Lion King display!










I was very excited when we reached Tinkerbell’s Butterfly House!




I fell in love with all the fairy houses scattered around!




I loved the butterflies fluttering around!




Rollerskate fairy house




Each of the fairies had a topiary in Tinkerbell’s Butterfly House



















Josh loves the opportunity to learn about just about anything. He loved the signs and explanations that they had posted around.







We enjoyed wandering around and just peeking at the gardens and the butterflies.













On the way out we got to see the Tinkerbell topiary, which was outside of the House. This is also when I remember I was supposed to get my Flower and Garden passport stamped!

Before I finish reading everything. 1) Josh's surprised look is because he found out you have crabs! A cute little jamaican crab!

2) of course I forgot what I was going to mention. Oh yes...WHY DID YOU NOT SAY FOR THE MOVE IT AND SHAKE IT PARTY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Oh my gosh, seriously my all time favorite thing ever at Disney. I could watch that a bazillion times.

Okay, I'll comment more in a few.

I was so confused for a second, then I realized what photo you were talking about We didn't stay for the party, I guess I didn't realize you can dance with the characters until later in the week. Next time!!
