Spring is in the air and the Flower and Garden Festival is now in full swing at Walt Disney World's Epcot Theme park with millions of blooms, great entertainment and new food offerings from March 6 to May 19, 2013. As guests stroll through the themed gardens and wonder in the diversity of plat life showcased in the park they can also spend a fair amount of time shopping for their own gardens back at home. Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival Merchandise can be found at the Festival Center and at kiosk shops scattered around the World Showcase Promenade.

Some of the most popular souvenirs offered at Festivals in years fast are back again, yes, I'm talking about the Mickey and Minnie Garden Gnomes. Garden statuary has been around since at least the Renaissance and Gobbi in all of their forms are a fun way to ornament your garden. Legend says that the little Gnomes are important elemental spirits and have magical powers to protect or punish people. When your Gnome looks like Mickey Mouse you know that it will offer just a little bit of extra Disney magic as well. Gnomes are known around the world by many different names but we like them best when it's spelled M-I-C-K-E-Y.

You can plant a smile on your face with a Mickey Mouse Garden Gnome Flower Pot, or Minnie Mouse will lend grace to your garden all the year round as a charming gnome. Finally, every breeze is a little more magical with Mickey Mouse Garden Gnome Wind Chimes. All of these cheery gnomes share smiles, fun, and the magic of Disney.

If we had a garden and yard we would so have Mickey gnomes all over the place. I also want a few of those flamingos with Mickey ears. I love those!!
