This is without a doubt my favorite event at Epcot. I look forward to seeing the flowers and displays every year. I can remember living up North and scheduling my vacation to view the festival. Today was not the best of days with cold temperatures, wind, and some rain while I was walking around.
The theme this year is “Celebrate the Great Outdoors.” I thought they did a great job carrying out that theme with the displays. One of the favorite areas for families was the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden.
I love spending time in the Minnie’s Magnificent Butterfly Garden. The butterflies were not very active today. I am sure the cold weather had something to do with it.
They had a new display this year for the Princess and the Frog. It was busy with families checking out the area.
I made my way over to the World Showcase. I couldn’t wait to see if some of my favorite displays were back.
I was looking forward to the roof garden in Norway. It was very sparse this year.
I always enjoy the bonsai displays in Japan. I think you need a lot of patience to create these masterpieces.
I think that the number of displays have diminished over the years. I felt like I was going to visit something familiar and I came away thinking it looked a little sparse compared to festivals in the past. I did enjoy the topiaries. They have added more of them this year. I do think that if you have never been to the event that you will have a very enjoyable time.
I will be going back to enjoy the Flower and Garden festival many times before it ends in May. Let me know what you think if you visit. Become a friend on my Facebook page
