[QUOTE=Disney Dreamer;934033]So tell me, does it look even better in person? [/QUOTE]
Not only does it look better in person, but it SMELLS better too!
It is our favorite time to go to WDW because of the topiaries and the plantings, but there are a few standouts:
-The jasmine all around the World Showcase Lagoon are in full bloom, and that jasmine smell floats all around the world. It’s so delicious!
-The magnolia trees are in full bloom too. I love magnolias and the way they smell too! It’s a Southern thang!
-The Italy Pavilion has the most incredible potted gardens – be sure to get REAL CLOSE to give them all a smell! :laugh:
-Make sure you look around every corner and in ever nook and cranny. There are topiaries everywhere, and they are the most creative incredible displays you have ever seen! Often, there are CMS who are pampering the topiaries, with little misting bottles and adding a few sprigs here and there. Once, they let us attach a new little plug of ivy to a topiary, which is secured with a regular bobby pin!
-Wait until you see the orchids in the trees by the Mexico Pavilion! Absolutely amazing.
-Head over to the rose garden walkway that is a “short cut” from WS sort of near Canada to the Future World Club Cool area… they have little tutorials and booths et up there, and they have given away packs of seeds, which we brought home to plant in our yard. NICE!
