It’s hard not to walk through a Disney Park and feel inspired or to have fond childhood memories come to mind – or in the case of Photographer Mariah Wild, both.
Mariah, a photography intern in our Yellow Shoes Department, recently visited the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, and during a walk through the United Kingdom Pavilion, was struck with an old memory.

Mariah wondered if it was possible to recreate that moment from the film – in which a shrunken Alice wanders through a garden of oversized, musical flowers – in real life.
Mariah worked with the Horticulture team to arrange the flowers just the way they appeared in the film. Alice even agreed to stop in to participate. Here’s the result:
