Mickey's of Hollywood

Mickey's of Hollywood is a store on Hollywood Boulevard near the entrance to Disney's Hollywood Studio theme park.


The neon sign in front of Mickey's of Hollywood beckons you to take a look inside the store where you'll find:
  • Disney Character merchandise
  • Family apparel
  • Pin Trading pins
  • Souvenirs
  • Plush toys
  • Food and candy
  • Mugs
  • Hats
  • Sunglasses
  • Items with the Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park logo


This is the starting point for the parade that winds through Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park. For a good vantage point of the parade, stand somewhere between Mickey's of Hollywood and the Keystone Clothiers shop

After passing the shops, the parade snakes up Hollywood Boulevard, turns left at the Mickey's Sorcerer's Hat, continues through Echo Lake and exits near the Star Tours attraction.

Woody & Buzz Lightyear Topiary - Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2011


The heroes of "Toy Story 3" have left the toy box. Woody and Buzz Lightyear meet arch-enemy Lotso the teddy bear on the Future World playground for the 18th Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival March 2 through May 15, 2011, at Walt Disney World Resort.


The popular Disney-Pixar characters hit the sandbox as seven- and eight-foot-tall topiaries at the Epcot front entrance flower bed featuring a sand castle, strawberry-scented field and playground toys.
 

Created by Disney gardeners and topiary experts with bold strokes of seasonal color, the topiary display marks the first time that "Toy Story" characters have been featured at the festival. It's also the first time in seven years that the front-entrance floral spectacle showcases all-new topiary characters, says festival horticulture manager Eric Darden.



 "It created unique challenges," Darden says, "and it's meticulous work. Woody is skinny, and it was a challenge to create his legs. The detail on Buzz is pretty daunting."
