The fairy house, inspired by 15-year-old winning designer, Zoe P., from Frazier Park, Calif., was revealed during a special ceremony on April 3 in the Pixie Hollow Garden at the 17th Annual Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival.  Zoe and her family were in attendance to celebrate the momentous occasion, as the fairy house will be on display for the duration of the festival.
The winning house design was selected by DisneyToon Studios filmmakers, currently working on the upcoming “Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue,” coming to Disney Blu-ray and DVD this Fall.  Director Brad Raymond, and the film’s Producer, Helen Kalafatic, attended the celebration to personally congratulate the winner, meet with Tinker Bell fans and sign autographs.
“We were thrilled to honor Zoe and her winning design at this very special celebration,” said Jason Everett, Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow product director. “This contest offered the Pixie Hollow community an exciting opportunity to utilize their love for Disney Fairies as inspiration to create their very own fairy house art design.  To see that design come to life and be featured in the Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival is truly a delight for everyone.”
