Celebrate Spring at Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival


When most people think of Epcot, usually the first event that comes to mind is ever-popular International Food and Wine Festival. Fair enough, but did you know there are just about the same, if not MORE, food and drink kiosks available at Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival, with the additional bonus of viewing beautiful topiaries of your favorite characters throughout the World Showcase? You can do all of this and more at Walt Disney World Resort’s Epcot anytime between March 1, 2017 and May 29, 2017!Where else in the world can you tour various countries on the globe, be surrounded by thousands of butterflies in their natural habitat, view more than 70 original Disney topiaries, or snack on a large variety of food and drink (non-alcoholic or alcoholic) offerings at the Outdoor Kitchens of the World Showcase? There is no other place than Epcot! Just want to leisurely stroll through the World Showcase? Let your eyes feast on the gardening interpretation of your favorite Disney character!
