As spring begins, an event blooms in Epcot – the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival!
From March through May, garden spaces blossom throughout the theme park. From vibrant colors in Future World to various topiary displays in the shape of your favorite characters, there is much to explore. A recent addition to the festival are outdoor kitchens throughout World Showcase, including fantastic food and beverage options. (Similar to a smaller version of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.)
If you have a green thumb, you will want to partake in the various seminars and demonstrations. Disney horticulturists and garden experts share tips that you can try at home. There is even an “Ask An Expert” series where the audience can ask their flower and garden related questions.
Want a little break from the sunshine? Head to the America Gardens Theatre for the Garden Rocks Concert Series! Previous performers have included the Village People, Georgia Satellites, Gin Blossoms and The Spinners. Shows typically occur on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
This festival is not only for adults, as there are play areas available for the kids as well. Take a stroll through the butterfly house or the English Tea Garden. Kids can also enjoy the interactive play zones, themed to their favorite Disney movies. There are even areas that will illuminate at night for a whole new experience!
If your race plans include Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend – The Dark Side, be sure to set aside some time to enjoy the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. There is a lot to explore!
