Disney’s Flower & Garden Festival is going on now through June 3rd at Epcot.  It is a must do for the gardener and non-gardener.

Color is all around you at Epcot!  From the huge walls of flowers and plants to the topiaries that go all around the park!  The ponds that you walk past on going from Future World to World Showcase-look both ways.  Disney shows us that you really can bloom and be colorful while having fun.  You can check out the play places , the gardening tips and don’t forget to use the topiary checklist to make sure you don’t miss a one.  They are worth your time and certainly worth the pictures you will take.  What is your favorite??

I also suggest checking out the “kitchens”  to see what foods you must try and what new foods they have this year.  The handy dandy passport books will help you with the listings.  Here is the list so you can check out before you go and plan for your picks as well as plan your budget: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2019-epcot-flower-and-garden-festival-booth-menus-and-food-photos/

You can stroll through the rose gardens going from the Future World path near Imagination Building into World Showcase.  Don’t forget to check out the butterfly exhibit.  You will want to watch for hitch hikers on your way out of it.  It is a great place for kids to see all the butterflies!

Generally speaking, I spend my morning going on the rides I want like Soarin’ and Spaceship Earth before heading into the World Showcase for an afternoon of color, food and fun.  It also cuts down on the walking.  Remember that the distance to walk around World Showcase once is 1.3 miles-yes 1.3 miles!!

If you are on the dining plan you can use snack credits to help you eat your way around World Showcase.  Look for the friendly snack sign on the kiosks that show you the menus. Another dining factor is the Garden Rock concerts.  You can make a dining reservation at most of the restaurants at World Showcase that will give you preferred seating at the concert for that evening.  Make sure the reservation clearly states Garden Rock Concert on it.  Check out who will be there when you are: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/entertainment/epcot/flower-garden-rocks-concert-series/

This is a must to add to your Disney planning!  Planning at Disney is so important!  Remember, plan to have fun!!
