Experience The 2012 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is one of the Disney World Special Events that everyone should make a point of trying to experience.  This amazing transformation of the normally well landscaped Epcot into a sea of blooming colors and wonderful topiaries is a sight that everyone in your family will enjoy.

At the front of Epcot for the 2012 rendition of this annual festival you will find Mickey Mouse in one of his most popular roles as Sorcerer Mickey posing along with some of the other characters from Fantasia.

Throughout Epcot you will find amazing gardens and beds of flowers that literally take your breath away.  During the entire festival, March 7 through May 20, the Disney Horticultural staff works hard to keep the plants blooming at their peak.

One of the best areas to explore is the France Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase.  Not only do you find beautifully landscaped gardens, but you will also find many special Disney Characters transformed into Topiaries.

 Container Gardens
Fans of container gardens will be truly inspired in the Italy Pavilion.  There is an amazing array of container gardens that will encourage you to mimic once you return home.  Also, who can't help but fall in love with the Lady & The Tramp topiaries?

Peter Pan takes center stage in the walkway between Future World and the World Showcase in a picturesque garden complete with topiaries from the Disney Classic Peter Pan.

Garden World Of Pixie Hollow
Some times the smallest details make the biggest impressions.  That surely is proven true when you walk through the Garden World of Pixie Hollow.  Here you will find Tinker Bell and her Fairy friends as well as some imaginative Fairy houses.

Experience The Magic Of Nature
There are so many different gardens, topiaries, and gardening related activities to enjoy that you will definitely have a different Epcot experience when you visit during this magical time of year.  For the advanced gardener to be there are even seminars each weekend conducted by HGTV celebrity designers and night time concerts to enjoy as part of the Flower Power Concert Series.

All of this enjoyment is included with your Epcot admission for no additional charge.  Plan your next Disney World Vacation to be during the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival and you will be glad you did!
