I'm looking forward to it this year. They really deck out the park with topiarys and flowers. The patterns are usually beautiful. It makes strolling World Showcase very pleasurable.

I experienced it for the first time last year and it was okay. I'm not that into topiaries personally so it doesn't do much for me personally but I know others enjoy the event's activities.

I think my favorite part would be the Bonsai displays at Japan & China. I just wish they had more of them! The whole events is pretty cool, though!

I am going during this time for the first time. I am not a huge world shocase fan... ok let me rephrase that... I really like lots of things about it, but I don't just wander it aimlessly. I love American Adventure, Kaki Gori, Canada and Mexico... pastries in norway...

OK, so I do like WOrld shocase... I just dont wander around every pavilion every time. But this time I am going to do Kim Possible (anyone want to join me?) so the garden fest might make that even more fun!

I do have a cool butterfly garden trick though. Take an ourange and right before you go in smear it all of your hands... the more pulp the better. THen be still and hold your hands out. Have someone take pictures when the little butterflies land on you.

I'm always in for Kim Possible, Rinjo!!!! The butterfly trick sounds awesome!!! I'm gonna try it! Thanks for the tip!

BTW, IMO, the pastries in France are the better than Norway's and maybe the best anywhere in the Universe... better than killer bakeries in the northeast including NYC!!!!

maybe we can get mat to show up and it can be a minnie meet.

Right now I am looking at Epcot on the 29th with a LeCelier reservation for there at about 2:50pm that I really don't want to give up... I mean... I might consider selling it on ebay... but I doubt it.

I've still never done the KP thing yet. And I agree Matt, F&G doesn't do much for me either but I will admit, every year I seriously think about buying one of the Banzai Trees but never end up getting one.

I thought F&G wouldn't be my thing either, we just happened upon it in May'07. There were some cool things, I liked the flower perfume thing in France, the butter fly garden was fun and if any decent bands..I can't believe Johnny Lang played F&W in Oct!

Oh, the KP thang, do it, it's kinda cool...someone needs to save the world.
