Must Sees at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival
With Spring upon us, it’s time once again for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. If you’re planning on visiting this ode to the beauty of nature, be sure to make a reservation at FantasyWorld, one of the leading Kissimmee Florida resorts. We offer spacious vacation villas, complete with a full kitchen, as well as a broad array of amenities, including our own water park. While you’re visiting the festival, make sure you check out these must-see attractions.
It’s hard not to feel like a real-life Disney princess – or prince – when you visit the Butterfly House. You’ll be enamored by the beautiful butterfly and fairy topiaries, and there are sure to be some actual butterflies flitting about, and some may even drop in for a personal greeting.
The creative topiaries are a big part of the festival and you’ll find an array of carefully trimmed living sculptures of your favorite Disney characters throughout the park. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Buzz Lightyear, Simba, Figment, Anna and Elsa, Princess Tiana, and so many more are everywhere, including new Encanto characters!
Throughout the festival, there are a number of informational events with presentations by DIY and HGTV experts to help you make the most of your own gardens. Plus, you can take one of the special guided tours through the various gardens. Disney horticulturists take you “around the world” and offer educational tips as well as provide some “behind-the-seeds” stories about the award-winning topiaries and gardens.
It’s not only about flowers and plants, though. There’s always food to be enjoyed at any festival, and this is no different, plus there’s an emphasis on farm-to-table ingredients in many of the 15 Outdoor Kitchens offering specialty menus with an array of food and beverages, both local and international.
Of course, as with many of the festivals, there’s also plenty of fun entertainment, including the Garden Rocks Concert Series. The America Gardens Theatre in World Showcase is where you’ll find a variety of big-name artists every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8 p.m. each evening.
With more than 700 gardens, 240 floating flower planters, and 30 million blooms springing to life during the festival, anyone who enjoys gardening or just admiring the beauty of nature will find something to enjoy throughout the 127-day festival that runs through July 5,2023. So book one of the vacation villas at FantasyWorld, one of the outstanding Kissimmee Florida resorts, and enjoy this fantastic floral festival.Tags: Kissimmee Condo, Kissimmee vacation, Rentals Kissimmee, Resort Tips, Vacation Packages
