During my trip last week to Disney World for the Monkey Kingdom Event, I had the opportunity to visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.
EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival
I’ve been to EPCOT several times in the past, but never during the International Flower & Garden Festival. So this visit was really a treat. With over 100 topiary displays, gardens and exhibits all featuring seasonal designs or popular Disney characters, there’s something for everyone to look at and enjoy.
My favorite were the topiary displays. These carefully crafted, locally grown displays allow you to come face-to-face with Disney characters in a whole new way. There are 21 topiary displays located throughout the park. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see all of them because the clouds decided to pour down rain on our parade. But I still had a great time and was able to see a large majority of the collection.
In addition to the gorgeous topiary displays, there are several beautifully landscaped gardens throughout the park that offer vibrant designs and views.
There are also exhibits that you can experience throughout the park during the International Flower & Garden Festival. My favorite was the Butterflies on the Go Exhibit presented by Go Go SqueeZ. It’s an enclosed area in the park that is filled with flowers and butterflies. There are plenty of learning opportunities as you make your way through the exhibit. For all my homeschool friends, a visit to the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival would be a fun field trip about the life cycle of a butterfly.
If you’re lucky, you may even see butterflies emerge from their chrysalis.
With paid admission into EPCOT you can attend the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. It’s suitable for children of all ages and there are no special requirements or restrictions. But hurry to EPCOT — the festival ends on May 17th.
Don’t forget to go see Monkey Kingdom during opening week. Every ticket that is sold during opening week will help endangered animals in their natural habitats.
