Epcot Flower and Garden Festival – March 5 – May 18, 2014
The Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is a special 75-day spring event filled with Disney character topiaries, colorful flowers, gardens, live music, special presentations and garden marketplaces featuring festival food and treats.
Disney gardeners paint the landscape with rainbows of blooms while Epcot chefs tempt guests with tastes to delight all pallets during the 21st Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival March 5 – May 18, 2014.
Epcot is decked out with Goofy, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck, Mickey Mouse and dozens of other Disney characters in larger-than-life topiaries that are scattered through the park. Go on safari to find all the the topiaries and check them off your list as you go. Hunt for hundreds of different kinds of butterflies in Tinker Bell’s Butterfly House while getting inspired on many ways to make your own butterfly garden that will attract butterflies to your own back yard.
Taste your way around World Showcase Lagoon as you sample tasty sweets or savory eats at a dozen different food and beverage places throughout the park. Enjoy your samplings as you watch the kids play in the themed children’s play areas. And the fun doesn’t stop when the sun sets because most of the gardens will be illuminated at night.
Be sure to check out the daily interactive gardening seminars will be held at the Festival Center for every outdoor do-it-yourselfer. HGTV celebrities will thrill you with home, garden and design ideas during weekend seminars.
The Disney-Pixar “Cars” garden and playground was a smash hit last year and will be part of the many attractions again this year. You’ll meet Mator, Lightning McQueen and characters from “Cars” at this very special place which is truly amazing to see.
