Disney Parks ‘Quick Hits’ – March 18th, 2010

Join me for a walk around the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival and you’ll hear it — “I want that in my yard.” I say it when seeing images like the one Gene Duncan captured for today’s “Quick Hits” post. But for others of you, it’s strictly character topiaries. So, this week, we asked our Walt Disney World Facebook fans, “If you could create a Disney topiary for your yard, which character would you choose?” Thanks to the thousands of you who have already responded.

Here are a few other items of interest that didn’t make it to the blog this week.

Moms Panel: Dining with Ariel — The Walt Disney World Moms Panel answers the question, “Can you dine with Ariel at Walt Disney World?”

New Disney Pin: Dino Jack — This special pin contains actual pieces of the iconic dinosaur Dino Jack from the Dino Jack Sunglass Shack at Disney’s California Adventure Park.

Disney Gardening at Home Series — Meet Disney gardening experts as they share tips and secrets you can plant in your own garden — a new series begins later this week.

The Land Pavilion at Epcot — More than 30 tons of fruits and vegetables grown at The Land Pavilion each year are served in Walt Disney World Resort restaurants.

New YouTube Channel — Disney Weddings has a YouTube channel. Click here to see more.

The Flower Power Concert Series — Turn back the clock with David Cassidy under the skies of the open-air American Gardens Theatre at Epcot theme park from March 19 – 21.


  • Kevin Martyn has a great website for the Disneyland Resort called Plants of Disneyland. There, you can find (nearly) every plant, tree, and flower in the parks based on the type of plant, or where in the park you saw it. Along with brilliant photos, it contains the plant identification, where it will grow, and even a link to where you can buy the plant or seeds! And of course, the book “Field Guide to the Plants of Disneyland” is a must for a self-guided walking tour of the foliage!

  • Love the blog, Thomas. I didn’t realize there was a different between “Quick Hits” and the Weekly Recap. I always skipped the Quick Hits because I thought that I had read everything already!

  • I really enjoy the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival!

  • Thank you so much for the Disney Weddings link to YouTube. My fiance and I are signing our contract this week and will be getting married on March 6, 2011. We can’t wait to have such a magical wedding!

  • Hey Thomas,

    The first link (‘Dining with Ariel’) links to a question from last week about peak dining times.

    • Thanks, Jerry. The link is fixed.
