2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

Our mother is a gardener, so if we’re in WDW and the Flower and Garden Festival is going on we know we’re stopping by to take some pictures and bring something home for her. This festival is a great event for all ages and does yield some useful tips and ideas for gardeners. The things people always stop for though are the Disney topiaries. Here are a few:

Stitch emerges from a flowerbed near Innoventions East.
The Three Caballeros perform in a garden of peppers (mild bell peppers to extremely hot Carolina Reapers and Ghost Peppers) near the Mexico Pavilion.
A troll greets guests in front of the Norway Pavilion.
Buzz Lightyear stands in front of Mission Space.
Peter Pan “flies” atop the United Kingdom Pavilion. Tinker Bell is in the garden below.

The topiaries are always cute. I have pictures from 2016’s festival with even more, so look for those in another post.

As I said before there are lots of tips and demonstration gardens for those with green thumbs. There’s a lovely butterfly garden, a water-wise garden, and more. Here are some of this year’s gardens:

The Flower and Garden Festival usually runs in April and May every year. While most topiaries and gardens remain the same year after year you can always count on a few changes each year. If you or someone you know loves gardening and the outdoors this is a great event with plenty of special food and nightly concerts on weekends.
