These flowerbeds were just BREATHTAKING. They made the walk to the international gateway very nice!




On our way to the next Passport station, we stopped to take some photos! AWKWARD!




And slightly less awkward!




It was getting VERY hot. But, I wanted to check out the OZ area!




Each of these little areas had a game like ring toss or bean bag toss.







Josh played the ring toss!




And these mirrors made me shorter, and widerÖ. Like I needed that!




We didnít stop for the bean bag toss, and I am still kicking myself for it, because this is where we would have gotten our flower seeds!




The person with the stamp for this area was at the end of the walkway, near the photo area. He was a HOOT and was willing to take a photo for us, if we would follow his directions!













This area had the most beautiful glass poppies!










The back entrance was very nice as well.




At this point I was getting a little too warm, luckily the next area to get a stamp was a nice shaded spot!







This area let you learn about how they grow crops in water, and decorate a plant pot.

Since everyone was commenting about how great the butterfly garden is, I'm going to leave that one alone and go back to the first part of that update. Those Cars topiaries are pretty awesome.

The Oz area looks pretty cool too. The games look like a nice little diversion as well.

The Cars area was really cool, I think I have more photos of it from another day The games in the Oz area were cute, we didn't spend too long there, they did have thingies where you could stick your face in and have your photo taken.

As we wandered away from the Oz area we found this little guy next to one of the DVC areas.




We were VERY excited to see the Peter Pan, Tick Tock and Captain Hook topiaries! They were right outside the bathrooms in the UK area!













Our plan for lunch had been to originally eat a Via Nappoli, but when they announced the menus of the new Flower Garden Food Booths we ditched the reservation, and decided to eat around the world for Lunch! Since we were in the areaÖ we decided to stop at the UK food booth! You can read a really in depth review HERE on my dining review!



We chose two snacks, the chive biscuit and the baked brie!







I posted a requested photo from my phone for a DISboard friend who wanted to see what she would be enjoying shortly at the festival!

We enjoyed these on a lovely little bench next to the Pubís take out window. While we relaxed we people watched and cooled down a bit. The heat really gets to me, much worse than it does Josh!
After our snack we decided to do a little peeking in the shops!
Josh being a hoot!




I noticed a very special line had almost no line and yelled at Josh to join me quickly! Good thing I did, because people started piling up behind us!




After visiting with a silly old bear we headed out to peek at the tea garden. I was not able to find someone to stamp my passport though.

You made a big mistake. You should have kept the Via Napoli adr, ordered at least a small pizza to share then go stuff yourself at the booths until you need a forklift to take you to the exit. That pizza is just too good to pass on...

Next time!!! We just didn't know if the food booths would be around again in the future. The snacks we got from them were to die for!

Right across from the tea area was a fantastic topiary of Pooh and friends! Eyore is my favorite, so Josh got this great photo!




A very nice man enjoying a beer saw Josh taking a photo of me and told him to get over with me.




Silly old bear






We continued across the bridge to see the dancing princesses!







Once over the bridge I decided it was time for another snack! I wanted to try pate for the first time and figured where better than Disney! You can read my full report HERE in my dining report.




This came with a cherry compote and crisp bread.
Once we got the snack we went over to the gazebo area where Sleeping Beauty meets, trying to hide a bit from the blazing sun.

There was no line, and no one around, so we sat down and started to enjoy. A VERY NASTY Photopass photographer came up and made us leave, so that she could take a bunch of photos of a family. It wasnít until long after we were gone (from where we moved to) that Sleeping Beauty came out.

Anyway we moved to this bench :



Yeah, not the best photo of me, but they canít all be winners! I enjoy sharing the bad, so donít expect that to be the last! The nasty Photopass lady continued to move this family all around the Beauty and the Beast area as well. I think me being on the bench messed her up, but hey she told me to get out!

After our snack we enjoyed the whole area!

Chip




Mrs. Potts






Lumier and Clocksworth!




Belle and her Beast

Wow so many wonderful pictures! I especially love the ones of Beauty and the Beast. I don't think i've ever tried Pate before. I'd probably try it!

Haha I LOVE the 'awkward' photo BTW!

The move it and shake it parade/party whatever is in Magic Kingdom. It comes down main street and then parks itself right in front of the castle and the dancing begins! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhSSW_LUNag
You can take pictures, but the characters won't pose or sign autographs. It's a fantastic experience.
