Fans of flowers and gardens rejoice! Disney just announced the dates as well as details of one of its most anticipated annual festivals, including some gorgeous topiaries that Guests will be able to enjoy!
The Flower and Garden Festival at EPCOT has become a fan-favorite, offering Guests exciting scenery, delicious cuisine, and unique entertainment. Walt Disney World recently announced the dates of the festival for next year, which we covered here, as well as announcing what Guests can expect to find when attending next year.
The annual Flower and Garden Festival officially returns next year to EPCOT on March 2 and will run through July 4, giving Guests a whole 125 days to enjoy fresh cuisine, colorful gardens, playful topiaries, and vibrant entertainment. And speaking of topiaries, Disney announced a few brand new ones that Guests can look forward to! Since this year marks Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary celebration, a new topiary display right at the entrance of EPCOT will feature Goofy and a 50th-themed birthday cake. Other classic character topiaries will include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Germany pavilion or Lumiere and Cogsworth who will be perfectly positioned in front of the brand new expansion to the France pavilion.
The festival is typically filled with stunning topiaries which make for excellent photo-ops for Guests!
Disney’s official description of the festival:
Gardeners will marvel at thousands of blooms forming colorful, living panoramas all around EPCOT, and the entire family can experience the Health Full Trail presented by AdventHealth along the Imagination walkway to learn tips for staying well.
Fresh flavors are on the menu at the festival’s 18 Outdoor Kitchens as well as other food and beverage locations around EPCOT, offering a fresh selection of springtime fruits, vegetables, desserts and more.
