    I spent about 20 minutes photographing the layout in Germany last December. ; I had read an article in Celebrations Magazine about taking some time to look for the detail here by some photographer that has his own website, so I gave it a whirl. ; I only just recently rediscovered these as I have been spending most of my time with my shots from Pixelmania. ; So here are a few..

    Nice set, John. ; I love how they always have an appropriate theme, especially during Flower & Garden or Food & Wine.

    Wow - excellent job - both you AND Disney! ; I need to pay more attention to that. ; I've photographed the train village before, but usually only one shot for a minute or two passing by - the crowds often turn me off, and I don't know that I've ever noticed the holiday-specific decor before.

    Can't wait to get up there again in a few weeks and see it!

    I don't remember if I've posted this here or not, but just in case I haven't, here is their version of the Flower & Garden festival. ; By a sheer coincidence, their topiaries are the same as the full-sized ones that were scattered around Epcot. :)

    Little town, little festival

    There are loads of little details in the layout. ; It really pays to get down on your knees and look closely.

    Very cool Dennis! ; It is interesting to see the same church (although very different angles) in 3 shot during 3 different themes.

    Awesome pictures!! I love the hidden details and how Disney continues to "dress" this display to match the festivities that are happening around it.

    Thanks! ; I think I will try to use this as a reason for a few extra trips, only I think my wife will not fall for that!

    I was not aware that Disney did this. ; I am going to have to pay attention to this now. ; Thanks for pointing it out.
