Sneak Peek: Miniature Train Garden at Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival

Horticulturist Julia E. Clark tends to the Germany pavilion's miniature train garden at Epcot as part of the 11th annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival (Photo by Kent Phillips/Disney) Many Walt Disney World Resort guests are familiar with the miniature train garden located outside the Germany pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. But we’re willing to bet a much smaller number of them realize that the garden is actually specially decorated for holiday seasons and festivals going on inside the park. Today, Walt Disney World released this photo showing horticulturist Julia Clark working on the garden for this year’s International Flower and Garden Festival which kicks off March 3 and shows off one of the neatest feature of this year’s decor: miniature horticulturists working on a dollhouse-size topiary of Snow White.

iPhone App Review: Disney’s Magic Mirror

Disney's Magic Mirror for the iPhoneTitle: Disney’s Magic Mirror (link)
Publisher:
Walt Disney
Released:
October 5, 2009
Cost:
$.99
iTouch?:
Yes, limited functionality
Pros: Sort-of cute app for the Snow White-diehard to share with friends
Cons:
More ad than content, not much of either for the price
Review:
This is a Snow White-ized  version of the classic Magic 8-Ball App. Ask it a yes/no question and it does its best to reply. So I simply asked it whether or not people should buy it and this was its actual response:

alone in the dark
the world is still
despite my best efforts
I do not know its will
