    With the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival kicking off on March 7, the Festival Center in Future World has some new merchandise that has been created for the annual event. The Festival Center, located between the Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy attractions, is home to a variety of seminars, demonstrations and an extensive merchandise location. Bob Holden from Disney Design Group talks about the main artwork that features Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck as topiaries.

    “For this year’s assortment, we used artwork provided by our Disney marketing team,” explained Bob. “My role was to apply that artwork to a variety of apparel items, mugs, key chains and more. I like how the artwork relates to things that guests will see at the event such as the topiaries.”

    The topiary theme continues with this year’s signature poster designed by long time Disney Design Group artist Randy Noble. I love the colors used in this print (and the happy sun makes me smile).

    There will also be a variety of items to decorate your own garden including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse as garden gnomes.

    Wendy,

    If you want to go crazy about it, you can order it from the Disney Parks direct mechandising line. I "think" the phone numbers are:

    877-560-6477 (toll Free)
    or
    407-363-6200​

    Or, there's a "subject line" on the Disney World "contact us" page for Disney Parks merchandising. Just choose "Walt Disney World Merchandise Questions" from the subject line drop down menu.

    Don't know how or if they could do international shipping but they've always been very accomodating when I've called them.

    Tom :)macwave:... bought the Flamingo last year from them!)
