Tinker Bell Topiary at Epcot's International Flower and Garden Festival

I just spotted Tinker Bell and her fairy friends at Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival! Just behind Innoventions East, you’ll find the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden blooming with beautifully-themed topiaries and foliage. During the festival, be sure to visit between 9:30 a.m. and 5:15 p.m. to meet some of your favorite Disney fairies from Tinker Bell and the Pixie Hollow Games.

If you can’t make it, you’re still in luck! We’ve set up a special Disney PhotoPass ID with photos of all of the fairy topiaries. Log-in or create an account at http://www.DisneyPhotoPass.com and claim ID: EPCT-FLWR-GRDN-FEST. Once claimed, your photos will appear in the Disney’s PhotoCD Bonus Content folder.

I hope to see you there!

Boo to You and You and You and You – It’s Almost Halloween

posted on October 27th, 2010 by Jeff Nickel, Associate Producer, Disney Photo Imaging


For my final installment of Guest costumes at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, I took a trip over to one of our many character meet and greet locations. Our resident space ranger Buzz Lightyear was on hand signing autographs and posing with Guests for our PhotoPass cameras. Take a look at this shot of Buzz and one of his biggest fans. We can hardly tell them apart!

Buzz Lightyear and a Guest Pose for a Picture

As always, there were so many great costumes I didn’t want the night to end. I was again impressed by the creativity of our Guests and amazed at how they packed these costumes in their luggage! Be sure to check out the pair of ghastly ghouls who at first had me convinced they escaped from the Haunted Mansion.

There are still four parties left, so if you’ve been waiting, time is running out. Head down to the Magic Kingdom and see some of these great Guest costumes yourself! (Be sure to save me a piece of candy if you do!)

Grim Grinning Guests Come Out to Socialize

posted on October 21st, 2010 by Jeff Nickel, Associate Producer, Disney Photo Imaging


My first visit to the Magic Kingdom for this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party was so much fun, I couldn’t wait to go out again. This time I was searching for Guests who were really getting into the “spirit” of the event with some very creative costumes. A great assortment of costumes were represented, from a large family of swashbuckling pirates, to soldiers from a galaxy far, far away… With each event we shoot, it’s all smiles and celebrations as we move closer and closer to Halloween.

After the spectacular fireworks show, I made sure to stop in Liberty Square for a special “Magic Shot” just outside of the Haunted Mansion. It’s true what they say about the ghosts following you home! I have proof!

Be sure to see our Disney’s PhotoPass photographers in Liberty Square and at the Haunted Mansion to have a little “magic” added to your photos. I hope to see you out there for our next Spooktacular Guest costume search!

Adding Disney Magic to Your Memories

Disney Guests in Halloween Costumes

Hello fellow Disney fans. I’m honored to join the official Disney Parks Blog as an author for Disney’s PhotoPass Service, the coolest way to get everyone in the picture. This month, I’m sharing photos of park guests in amazing costumes at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Take a look:

So, what’s Disney’s PhotoPass Service? If you’ve been in the parks, you’ve probably seen our photographers capturing thousands of photos at different locations around the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. Even better, if you attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom Park or Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Park, you will experience unique party elements (cool Halloween décor and some of your favorite characters dressed in their holiday finest). The best news is that our photographers are there to capture your Halloween party memories, getting everyone into the picture.

How does it work you ask? Simple:

After smiling for the camera, you get a unique Disney’s PhotoPass card to load with images you have taken by Disney’s PhotoPass photographers at different locations (there are no limits to how many photos you can have taken or associated with your Disney’s PhotoPass card). Then comes the best part – you log-in or register on DisneyPhotoPass.com to see and share your photos. We even have online Disney artwork to help you customize all of your photos, including custom Halloween themed artwork. (Online registration required. Photos available online for 30 days after theme park visit.)
