Spring Carnival - Part 1

Since today is the very first day of Spring, let's take a look at Tokyo DisneySea's Spring Carnival event. These pictures were taken in the park's Mediterranean Harbor area in 2008. That's a topiary of Jiminy Cricket on the right.

The "25" represents the 25th anniversary of the Tokyo Disney Resort. Technically, it didn't become the "Tokyo Disney Resort" until 2001 when Tokyo DisneySea opened, but it was the 25th anniversary of the opening of Tokyo Disneyland.

Here are Pinocchio and Gepetto during the day......

....and at night.

Next, we have the Blue Fairy getting ready to work her magic. (The ruins in the background are supposed to be ancient Roman Aqueducts.)

These floral vignettes are only on display during the park's Spring Carnival event which runs from April through June. This year will mark the fourth year for this special event.
Happy First Day of Spring, everyone!

Wow, that looks nice!

So how excited are you about Jasmine's Flying Carpets? ;-)

Well, it is going to be just a "spinner" but it looks like it will be built with some nice surrounding details. And I guess the park does need a few more attractions for the "little ones." Plus I read that in addition to going up and down, the vehicles will tip forward and back. Florida's version doesn't do that does it?

Those are great!! If I lived in Florida, I'd definitely try to grow my own topiary. In the arid Colorado climate, it's tough to get grass to grow here!
