Let’s forget about what that groundhog said last week and start thinking about spring!
Disney’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival runs from March 18th to May 31, 2009. And don’t worry if you’re arriving near the end of the festival. Every bloom looks as beautiful on the last day as it does on the first.
During the festival Epcot comes alive with special flower gardens, topiaries, special gardening events and shows. You’ll be amazed at what is done with the topiaries that can be found all around Epcot.
My first visit to the International Flower and Garden Festival was in May 2004 and I’m returning to see it again in 99 short days.
This year’s theme is called Cinderellabration. Epcot’s entrance will have topiaries of Cinderella, Prince Charming, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
This year there will be more than 70 topiaries and millions of blooms throughout Epcot during the festival.
If you plan to go during this time make sure to see what Flower Power concerts may be going on during your time there. There are ladybug and butterfly releases that both kids and adults will enjoy. You can meet and talk to master horticulturists and you can even buy gardening tools and other items to take home with you.
I will post my pictures from the festival in 2004 in the next day or two so check back soon~
