In February we wrote about a contest held by Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow that invited artists everywhere to create their own Fairy house design in which the director of the upcoming movie “Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue ” would choose a winner who would then receive a vacation for four to the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida as well as have their creation featured at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
That winner has been selected and it is none other than 15-year-old Zoe P., from Frazier Park, California. She and her family were honored on April 3 in a special ceremony at Hollow Garden in Walt Disney World.
Zoe P, winner of the pixiehollow.com “Design a Fairy House” contest closely examines her
Fairy House at Epcot. Her design was chosen from thousands of entries and built by the
horticulture team at Walt Disney World Resort.
Here is the official press release from the Walt Disney Company.
