Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival #FreshEpcot

Visiting the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is a highlight of spring for me.  I am always in awe of the craftsmanship of the flowers, food, and entertainment. As someone who has never been very good at growing things to see the beauty of flowers in bloom is breathtaking.

What I didn’t know was how much work and planning goes into putting on this festival every year. I recently was able to sit down and talk to some of the people who are behind making this festival a success. I can tell you I learned a lot.

Things I learned

  • Planning begins in September for this festival
  • The trees and flowers come mainly from Florida but a few come from out-of-state
  • Every year 1 to 3 new trophies are added to keep up with the changing characters and movies
  • The menus changes from year to year but also bring back a few favorites
  •  Food spotlights farm to table recipes

  1. I try to go to this every year at least twice. Epcot has always been my favorite park. The food is amazing and the flowers are so pretty.

  2. I love everything Disney but have never been to Epcot during their flower show. I think I need to do this! And the amazing food! That’s another great reason to go! 😉
