Must See: Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival
Taken by Rachel Anderson
- Beautiful Flowers and Gardens – With over 70 topiaries across Epcot®, you are sure to find one of your favorite characters. You can see Ranger Mickey welcoming you, Belle and the Beast in France or a personal family favorite, Anna and Elsa from Frozen in Norway. Everywhere you look there are gorgeous gardens, beautiful flower towers and thousands of different plants to see.
- Playgrounds – There are two awesome shaded playgrounds for your kids to have hours of fun in! Surrounded by the Lighting McQueen and Mater topiaries, the Cactus Road Rally has a great slides and play area. It also has comfortable chairs for parents to relax in. Also, new this year is the Musical Garden Melodies playground where you and your children can play drums, xylophone or climb the nets and take a turn on the fun slides.
- Yummy Food and Drinks – As we know from my previous posts -I love food and I love wine! With 13 delicious stations there is something for everyone. From a Macaron Chocolat Framboise in France, Beef Brisket Burnt Ends Hash with White Cheddar Fondue in America and Shrimp and Stone-ground grits with Andouille Sausage from the Florida Fresh Kitchen, there are tasty eats for all. Now let’s not forgets the drinks: tea in China, Sparkling Pineapple Wine from the Pineapple Promenade and the lagers from Germany are a few of our favorites.
- Tours and Concerts - There are three awesome tours that anyone wanting to know more information about the gardens and plants in Epcot will enjoy. The English Garden Tea Garden tour, Behind the Seed tours and Epcot® Garden of the World Tour will definitely peak your interest. On the weekends the American Gardens Theatre is a rockin’ place! The Village People, Starship and Blood, Sweat and Tears are just a few of the bands that will be belting out some great tunes!
Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival will be featured until May 30th and is included in your regular admission. If you live near or far, it is worth the trip! All of our communities in Orlando are only a 20 -30 minute drive away, but it is worth the drive or a flight in from any Camden community! With spring in the air, this is a must do for everyone!
