This past Saturday, Disney Online announced the winner of its “Design a Fairy House Art Contest,” which ran in February on the online world for girls, Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow (www.PixieHollow.com). The winning fairy house design, inspired by 15-year-old Zoe Periale from Frazier Park, Calif., was revealed during a special ceremony in the Pixie Hollow Garden at the Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival. Zoe and her family were in attendance to celebrate the momentous occasion.
The winning house design was selected by DisneyToon Studios filmmakers, currently working on the upcoming “Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue” movie coming to Disney Blu-ray and DVD this fall. Director Brad Raymond and 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.”
A luncheon preceded the announcement. Zoe and her family, media and some Disney cast members and their families were also in attendance and were able to meet Tinker Bell and her friend Terence. Some of the cast member’s daughters also created fairy houses that were on display during lunch.
Zoe’s fairy house will be on display in the Pixie Hollow Garden at Epcot for the rest of the festival.
