Sunset Over the Tree of Life at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Celebrating Fall Color at the Disney Tree Farm at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on September 16th, 2011 by Gene Duncan, Photographer, Walt Disney World Resort


Yesterday, I spent my lunch hour at the Walt Disney World Nursery – aka “The Tree Farm,” seeking out photogenic plant life just for fun. Fall colors in most places are quite predictable but in Central Florida, there are endless possibilities available. I hope you enjoy this little noontime stroll as much as I did.

After moving to FL, one of the things I miss most is the Autumn season I used to experience in NY where I grew up. The colors of the trees were at the top of that list (along with the weather) every year, I take a WDW trip because Disney helps re-create this magic for me during my favorite time of year!! Thank you for this, makes me so much more excited that I’ll be arriving in just 17 days!

All those Coleus! A beautiful and varied plant, I’m always amazed at how many different ways Disney can use them around property! Great shoot!

Autumn at WDW is fantastic. (Though I love it any time of year.)

Absolutely stunning photography as always. The richness of colour and the contrasting textures are so beautiful and the setting of each ‘subject’ just makes the pictures leap out of the screen. Lovely. Can’t wait to see it all for real next month. =)

Beautiful images. I agree with the other posters. I’d gladly throw myself and my $ into a photo tour with you anyday I was lucky enough to be at WDW!

Years ago, Disney had the Disney Institute, where you could enroll in classes for photography, baking, horticulture – after seeing these pictures, I think they should consider re-opening the Institute! Thanks for the timely tour…..
