My children love butterflies. That love only escalated after their first “pets” led to loving and caring for beautiful Bella.

So when we walked by Tinker Bell’s Butterfly House during Epcot’s 20th Flower and Garden Festival in Walt Disney World, they were ecstatic.

Stepping daintily into the enclosed, sheltered house the kids were filled with eager anticipation.

How many butterflies would they see in the House?

Would any land on their fingers? How would Tinker Bell tie into the garden?

 

As we ventured forth, a protected enclosure filled with chrysallides drew them to an awe-struck silence.

Having watched five chrysallides form with great effort, the kids appreciated how precious this stage in the butterfly’s life cycle was and stood mesmerized.

A fluttering butterfly quickly drew the kids away

and my daughter was the first to have a little girl offer to transfer the butterfly on her finger, onto my daughter’s. (You should’ve seen the look of joy on my daughter’s face!)

The Butterfly House wasn’t just a beautiful home for the colorful winged inhabitants

but also served as home to the gorgeous, floral sculptures of Tinker Bell’s fairy friends.

Everyone from Vidia, Iridessa and Fawn to Rosetta, Silvermist and Terence were featured in stand alone exhibits through the House…

Not only did we drink in the floral masterpieces painstakingly created by Disney’s gardeners but also had fun trying to spot out all the butterflies fluttering around in the House.

Our favorite was easy to spot!

And thankfully after quite a bit of waiting, Hubs was able to help my little man get a Zebra Longwing to land on his finger.

Joy!

Inspired by how gorgeous the garden looked filled with butterflies galore and armed with the right advice,

Hubs is all set to re-create a mini butterfly garden for the kids this summer.

Now if only we can get him to re-create something like this for near the walkway!

  2. This is one of my favorite places to visit during the Epcot Flower & Garden Show. You really captured the beauty and fun of it! That’s so neat that your daughter was able to have a butterfly transferred to her finger. What a wonderful memory!

  3. I saw some of this when I was at Disney last year. I love the intricate designs! So pretty.

  4. OH my goodness, what a special, special thing to do. I really like how they had the identification sign there too.

  5. This is awesome.. I loved your pictures and ohhh the butterflies.. super cool… I had no idea that Florida has that many different Butterflies.. I hardly ever see any, maybe I should start my own Butterfly garden, but it won’t be anywhere near as cute, since I don’t have Tinkerbell….:-) Thanks for sharing

  10. Beautiful pictures! I love Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival! The topiary gardens are amazing. We were there in February and they were just setting up. I was so glad I got to see some of the displays!

  11. Leave it to Disney to come up with linking butterflies to fairies. I love it. It looks like your kids really enjoyed it, and I wouldn’t mind having some of that beautiful floral art in my own yard.

  12. Thanks for sharing these photos. Last time I went to Disney they didnt have Tinker Bell’s butterfly house 🙁
