One of the best places to experience spring is at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Beginning March 1 and continuing through July 5, this stunning festival features alluring gardens, whimsical topiaries, lively entertainment, beautiful merchandise and delightfully fresh cuisine.
For the first time, topiaries of Mirabel, Antonio, Isabela and Luisa from Disney’s Encanto will make a grand appearance at the festival. Located near the EPCOT main entrance, these new topiaries are sure to be a must-do photo moment to mark your visit. (But remember: We don’t talk about Bruno.) A new Princess Tiana topiary will grace The American Adventure pavilion as well!
Although not as long as the previously offered Extra Magic Hours, Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours are offered to select guests of Disney Resort hotels and some Good Neighbor hotels near Walt Disney World. These extra hours can be a very valuable use of your time if you're willing to give up some sleep on either end of your theme park day(s). We've found that the early morning option can offer lower crowds than in evening as folks don't tend to enjoy waking up super early on vacation.
