EPCOT's Flower and Garden Festival
Each spring from about mid March to mid May, EPCOT is decked out in its finest greenery for the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival. We have had the privilege of visiting EPCOT two different years during the Flower and Garden Festival. The ever meticulous grounds become even more meticulous and colorful.
This past spring, a special wedding garden was designed for Disney’s newest princess, Princess Tiana. Click here to read more about Tiana.
In honor of the Disney Fairies, topiaries were created in their likeness. Click here to read more about Disney Fairies.
And, just as you would find various characters at the pavilions in World Showcase, you would also find their topiaries.
The pavilions weren’t the only location for wonderful Disney inspired topiaries. At the entrance to World Showcase, we found a dolphin topiary display in honor of the movie Disney Oceans.
The main entrance to EPCOT had a marvelous topiary featuring Goofy and Donald at a campfire.
Another feature you can find at EPCOT during the Flower and Garden Festival is playgrounds sprinkled around World Showcase. Each year, we have found 3 playgrounds for kids. These playgrounds offer a welcome break from touring for the entire family.
If you can plan a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort during EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival, I highly recommend it. And, I have two commemorative pins to prove it! Click here to read more about what we collect.
