The Epcot Flower And Garden Festival

The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is the perfect combination of delicious food, stunning garden displays and musical entertainment.  Spring is a great time to visit Orlando thanks to the gorgeous weather, and Epcot is especially beautiful. The park blossoms into a striking garden that celebrates the sights, sounds and smells of spring. Across the park guests are treated to exquisitely crafted topiaries of Disney characters including Elsa & Anna, Minnie & Mickey, Buzz & Woody and much more. A variety of themed gardens and play areas, and tantalizing farm to table-style dishes at the Outdoor Kitchens. The festival lets your love of music grow with the Garden Rocks Concert Series and informational sessions at the Festival Center will plant the seeds of your own gardening ideas. This year’s festival runs February 28 to May 28.
