I stumbled upon Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival in May 2004. The annual event brings new meaning to what can be done with flowers, plants and topiaries. The event began March 19th and runs through June 1st. If you’ll be in Disney during this time you’re in for quite a treat!
You can’t miss it when you enter Epcot because the land is drenched in beautiful blooms. These make great stand alone photos or backdrops to take pictures of friends and family.
What’s amazing is how these flowers and lush greenery stay fresh and unscorched from that Florida sun at a time of year when the sun really begins to heat up.
During the festival special events are held such as the ladybug release every day at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. This is a great activity for children. In Minnie’s Magnificent Butterfly Garden you can wander through a garden and butterfly house with hundreds of butterflies. You also don’t want to miss the opportunity to learn from Disney Horticulturists how they create these amazing topiaries.
