EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival

We went to EPCOT yesterday for the 2008 Flower and Garden Festival.

and (although I didn't take lots of pictures), I remember it being much
more elaborate. I really loved these in 2006 (made entirely out of

We REALLY missed the "Hidden Mickeys" too! When we've gone before,
there have been Mickey heads hidden in the flowers and it's always fun

All in all, we had a very nice family day. Check out these PHOTOS from yesterday's visit!

Want an EPCOT "little known fact" from the Mickey Freaks? If
you are leaving EPCOT after dark, look the sparkling lights! We always
walk on the RIGHT side of Spaceship Earth and the walkway is covered
with squares that light up and sparkle like stars. My daughter loves to
run and jump on them as they move around. They look even better without
the flash from the camera! Click on the image to see it better. (I'm
not sure if they are on the left side too.)
