Love this promo

You can get some of these items from www.ShopDisney.com also. (Sorry to report, the tote was available yesterday. It's not showing now.)

I always loved to watch the ‘making of’ videos in the theatre of the festival center. They showed them making the topiaries and everything. The best part is always the time lapse of them setting up the entrance display overnight. It’s a shame if they don’t shown that anymore. We just picked up our magnets and are sitting down for the 8pm show of Night Ranger. :cool:

It was available when I first saw it but having a tote isn't a guy thing. Now the status has changed from "Sold Out" to "In Store Purchase Only".

We are going in May for the first time. We aren't going to Universal on this trip so we'll be able to spend 2 days at Epcot and really enjoy all the festival has to offer. We are really looking forward to it!

Too much to take in. I would hate to be on vacation and not really slow down and enjoy it

F&W has a bunch of seminars and presentations. So this would just been Food and Plants.

Heard the ears are selling out everywhere :( bahhh

Seriously considering buying something with Orange Bird. The Figment stuff is cute too, but I just love Orange Bird a lot. Decisions, decisions...

JohnDMar 02, 2018

In Shop Disney Parks, I settled on an Orange Bird shirt — 2018 F&G Festival on front left, Orange Bird on the back.

Wow, so they are dropping the illusion of any sort of educational aspect now? It's just F&W with plants? Not complaining just...
