Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

 As I write this many places are still experiencing winter but spring has already come to Epcot at Walt Disney World. Every year Epcot has its International Flower and Garden Festival. This year it is being held from March 6 – May 19, 3013.

You may be wondering what exactly is the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival? Well it is your chance to see Epcot all in bloom. Disney plants magnificent floral displays in several locations throughout Epcot. Some are truly amazing as you can see here.

Another thing you can do is look at the topiaries that are scattered all over Epcot. I have always been amazed at how they create these magnificent things. Disney has put out over 70 Disney character topiaries, like these ones.

There is also a butterfly garden that you can walk through and see butterflies  emerging from their cocoons.

If you happen to go to Epcot during this time of the year, make room in your touring plan to take in some of these magnificent sights scattered all over Epcot. I am sure you will enjoy it just as much as we have on a recent visit.
