Epcot's International Flower & Garden Festival

 

MARCH 4 - MAY 17, 2015

 

 

Flower & Garden Festival Overview





One of the most welcome signs of spring is Epcot's annual International Flower & Garden Festival. While the grounds at Epcot are always beautiful, the Flower and Garden Festival takes them to the next level.

Throughout Epcot over 100 topiaries will be on display. The Flower Power Concert Series has been renamed the Garden Rocks Concerts. Perennial Flower and Garden favorites such as the English Tea Garden, special kids' activities, several presentations by HGTV stars at the Designers Stage, and Ask An Expert will be returning. For the kids, there's the Cactus Road Rally Garden Radiator Springs interactive play zone, Bambi's Butterfly House, GoGo on the Go Challenge, and the Mike & Sulley's Monstrous Garden. Illuminated topiary and play gardens will light up at night for a whole new festival experience.

Throughout the event, Disney horticulturists and garden experts will conduct twice-daily seminars, sharing tips and secrets for you to try at home.

70,000 bedding plants will surround the Future World east and west lakes and 220 mini-gardens will be floating out on the water.
