Here we are at one of my favorite Disney venues, the annual EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival. Disney’s 20th annual Festival is now in full bloom here at EPCOT. Sponsored again by the popular cable show HGTV, this year’s Festival brings new topiaries, workshops and seminars by your favorite HGTV stars in the Festival Center. (The old “Wonders of Life” building located between Ellen’s Energy Adventure and Mission Space). Inside the center you’ll find merchandise and find information all about the 75 day event. You can get the seminar schedules where on Fridays through Sunday, your favorite HGTV personalities will be on the “Designers Stage” and on Monday through Thursday, other garden notable experts will be giving advice and lectures.
Most of us know what to expect here, beautiful floral arrangements, amazing topiary displays (New are “Welcome to Radiator Springs”, Monsters Inc. University and Disney’s new movie, “Oz, The Great and Powerful”) and of course the “Flower Power Concerts” at the American Gardens’ Theater. Also new this year is Food Kiosks around World Showcase where the renowned EPCOT chefs have prepared some special taste treats for all. Guests can sample unique flavors from around the world. The World Showcase Promenade will feature “Florida Fresh” fare. Be sure to stop at all the “Garden Marketplaces” around the Showcase and sample all the goodies. Specialty drinks such as Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade and Wild Berry Slush, both non-alcoholic, and select wines and rum can be had. But the best part of the Festival is the amazing Topiary and flora displays.
