Pixie Hollow at Epcot- Pixies & Fairy Houses & Flowers, Oh My.

 The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is always one of my favorite Walt Disney World events. Last year I have skipped the Pixie Hollow display. The area was being used as a meet and greet for Tinker Bell and the fairies resulting in a very crowded area. This year Tinker Bell was at her dedicated site at Magic Kingdom, so I decided to check out Pixie Hollow.

The level of detail was incredible. Every display had hidden elements just waiting to be found. There was a section for each fairy plus the new Winter Woods area home to Periwinkle, a new fairy. Each section was themed around its pixie and each section had a fairy house.

The Winter Woods section was shared by Periwinkle and Tinker Bell and populated with many different white plants. Most of the areas had flower displays of a single color but varying shades and types of plants and flowers.  I was amazed by how beautiful a garden in completely one color could be. The Winter Woods, Fawn's section and Rosetta's sections were great example of what you can do with a single colot palette.

Tinker Bell, Periwinkle and Silvermist. Silvermist is not in the same section as Tink and Periwinkle.

Iridessa and her multi color display.

Rosetta and her field of pinky purple flowers. This was one of my favorite sections. My pictures just don't do justice to how pretty these flowers were.

Fawn's section. This was another favorite. This inspired me to think of new options for my garden. I never realized orange could be so pretty

In addition to the flower display, each section had a fairy's signature on a metal plate. Children were given a sheet of paper and rubbed each signature on the sheet. When the sheet was completed, it could be turned in for a prize which included a packet of seeds. My children had a lot of fun collecting the signatures.

The festival ends in a few days. If you are heading out to Epcot be sure to check it out. If not, put it on your must do list for next year. You won't be disappointed.

    1. The Pixie Hollow gardens won't be there in July, but there is a super cute fairy meet and greet at Magic Kingdom. Tink is always there and usually one other fairy. The theming is great.

    2. How pretty! I love all of the fairy topiaries! Very nice!
