This year the 23rd Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival will be bigger and better than ever! The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival will run from March 2 – May 30, 2016. Yes that’s right – 90 days.
I’ve had the privledge to be at Walt Disney World during the festival in the past and it is absolutely beautiful! It’s one of the Disney events you just have to experience at least once in your lifetime.
This year’s event will have the first-ever Huey, Dewey and Louie topiaries and will feature floral characteristics of Donald’s nephews inspired by a 1943 Donald Duck comic book called “The Victory Garden.”
Nearly 100 topiary characters, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Landy and the Tramp, Simba and Peter Pan will make Epcot even more magical. Oh and Anna and Elsa topiaries will be in where else but the Norway pavilion festival landscape.
The new “Fab Five” play garden featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto and Donald Duck topiaries will debut with musical instruments built into children’s outdoor climbing systems.
When the sun sets, illuminated topiary and play gardens will glow brightly for an after-dark festival experience. I can’t even imagine how amazingly breath-taking that will be.
Wondering where the best place to snap a selfie or family photo will be? The Ranger Mickey topiary garden in Future World with Spaceship Earth as the backdrop is it!
So great to see that they are bringing the Butterflies on the Go garden back. My daughter loved learning about the Monarch’s journey across the continent and seeing how butterflies emerge from their chrysalises.
There will also be how-to Gardening Seminars to attend. And the Garden Rocks concert series will have pop bads with music spanning four decades sure to please every family member and so much more.
