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:

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.
