Epcot Flower and Garden Page Layout Ideas

With the start of the 2014 Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival this week Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida Guests can experience 75 days of 240 floating mini-gardens, over 100 topiaries, dozens of flower towers, and sweeping beds of multi-colored blooms.  I had to take this opportunity to share some of these beautiful topiaries – past and present.

2008 – The year we attended the Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival as part of our Honeymoon.   It was very romantic to walk hand and hand in-between all the beautiful blooms.

2009 – We went back for our first anniversary.   The Lion King took center stage this year along with the new Tinker Bell franchise.   Oh, how I loved that little garden.

2012 – I grabbed some photo of the Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival as I was there on a solo trip for the One More Disney Day event.  Love how they recycle some of our favorite topiaries and place them in new locations from year to year. It’s always fun to try and find them.

Hope you enjoyed my tour of topiaries but of course there is so much more to do at the 2013 Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival.   There is the Flower Power Concert series with some great acts from your past, the HGTV seminars at the festival center, and new this year there will be food booths around the World Showcase.
