The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is one of my favorite events. We haven’t been in a few years. We’ve been in the parks right before the festival so we’ve gotten to see a few of the topiaries but I’ve missed the full experience. So this year we made sure that we would be in the parks while the festival was going on and I can’t wait! So much has changed and there are so many things I can’t wait to see.
Display at the Entrance to Epcot
It’s so much fun to enter the gates and see the beautiful display at the entrance to Epcot. This year the display will feature a new computer-generated look. I’m not really sure what that means. I’m guessing the topiaries will have movement of some sort. Whatever is in store I can’t wait to see it!
You can fly!
Peter Pan has been a part of the festival for several years but last year he was placed on the roof of one of the buildings in the United Kingdom Pavilion. It looked so cool! I’m really glad he will be returning along with Captain Hook and Croc.
For the second year there will be gardens that will light up in the evening. I’m planning on finding a nice spot to chill and enjoy the view.
Snacking at the Marketplaces
The food and drink marketplaces made their debut at last year’s festival. We enjoy the Food & Wine Festival so I’m excited about visiting the different booths. Last year’s menus looked great and I really hope the Dole Whip with spiced rum is back and I really want to try some Frushi.
It IS easy being green!
I am soooo excited that Kermit and Miss Piggy will make their debut at the Flower & Garden Festival this year. Their new film, Muppets Most Wanted, hits theaters on March 21st so this is one movie tie in I can get behind.
Will you be attending the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival this year? What are you looking forward to?
