Charlene grew up watching all the classic Disney movies and dreaming of being a princess but only recently became a full-fledged Disney Fanatic when her Prince Charming finally talked her into taking their family of seven on a WDW vacation (after 10 years of begging). Now, Charlene is often found pinning Disney tips, reading Disney blogs, and strategically planning out their next Disney vacations. Out of their five children, there is only one little princess, with whom Charlene can live vicariously through, meeting Disney princesses and watching all the magical Disney fairy tales together. Charlene is also an independent travel planner with Ears of Experience, contact her for all your Disney travel needs at www.charleneplansthemagic.com

With Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival starting, let’s throw back to a 1983 topiary. This lonely, lovely hippo graced the entrance to Epcot. The International Flower & Garden Festival would not start for another 10 years(1993), but Disney was always famous for topiaries. Notice anything missing from this grand entrance?
