Epcot blooms since March 1st and it is not too late to enjoy the themed gardens and savor the mouthwatering offerings of the specialty food kiosks.
Epcot blooms and it is not too late for you to enjoy the annual festival. You don’t need to have a green thumb to enjoy the larger-than-life Disney character topiaries and over 30 million blooms and 500,000 plants, trees, and shrubs that are on display at the annual Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. Every year some 400 horticulturists install the blooming landscapes, topiaries, and exhibits. It’s not too late to enjoy the themed gardens and savor the mouthwatering offerings of the specialty food kiosks.
Guests are greeted in front of Spaceship Earth by the topiaries of Pluto, Mickey, Daisy, and Minnie. You can find more than 100 topiaries throughout the park; every year a few new ones are added or re-invented. Our favorites are Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, and the Fairy Houses from Pixie Hollow at the United Kingdom Pavilion; The Three Caballeros at the Mexican Pavilion; and the Fantasia topiaries, located at Future World.
Not to be missed is Butterflies on the Go, a tent filled with different species of butterflies, fluttering around flowers, plants, and visitors. The butterfly tent is a favorite with families. Kids will also love the interactive gardens and playgrounds, such as the Music Garden Melodies playground and the Road to the Florida 500 garden. Visiting some of the 15 Outdoor Kitchens is a delicious way to make your way through World Showcase.
However, a picture is worth a thousand words, and we have put together our Epcot Blooms slide show for you to enjoy.
