Ohhh, these pictures are great!!

As for posing in/near foliage - stepping carefully into it to pose is fine - but my concern is STAY AWAY from foliage - um, SNAKES! Really... it's true.

They should have been more aware when placing stuff in the landscaping that surely people would want to be posing with - maybe to have not had stuff so much IN the landscaping. Of course you're going to want to step in for a quick picture - but for me it's a safety issue of snakes that could be unseen in there!

Just wondering....and don't hate me for asking this.... but does anyone else get annoyed when people let their kids (or themselves) walk into the bushes/flowers to take pictures? It makes me sad to see the beautiful gardens throughout WDW damaged by careless guests.
Thank you everyone for reminding me about the dangers in the plants when taking pictures and possibly damaging foliage.

I actually did notice a lady climbing a hill at the Flower and Garden festival to take a picture next to a topiary and commented to her about inappropriateness of that so I can relate to people not wanting to see grass or plants wrecked.

Letting DS in the plants probably wasn't my most shining parenting moment. DS just kept going by the different fish and asked for his picture to be taken. Just so you can sleep at night, please be assured that no plants were harmed during our photo shoot (and the kiddo is o.k. too)!

I have to say, that Wheel Well section looks really cool, just like from the movie.

I am so excited for our Oct. trip, and cannot wait to see LM photos! Thanks for the info. about the snakes. What kind of snakes hide in there? Here, we only have your typical harmless snakes. (I don't even want to know about the spiders). ..

Here is a video of the gorgeous grounds of the AOA resort: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cnmsx...3&feature=plcp

The resort grounds are so beautiful ~



The wall behind the check in desk, (reminds me of Fruit Stripes gum )







The wall lining the gift shop in the lobby area ~







The Lion King area ~
