Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival
MARCH 1 - MAY 29, 2017
Throughout Epcot, almost 100 topiaries will be on display. A new Belle topiary with sculpted facial features and a golden ball gown made of Joseph's Coat plants will debut in the France Pavilion. A new Figment topiary will be placed in front of the Imagination pavilion; Figment will stand 6 feet tall and be atop a yellow ball of Joseph's Coat plants that is 5 feet in diameter. As always, a new topiary creation will be waiting just inside the entrance. Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, and Pluto will recreate a vintage short film with a floral maypole.
To celebrate the June 2017 release of Cars 3, the interactive play gardens will be reimagined and will include a new topiary with a character from the film. The Music Garden Melodies play area will return as well.
In front of Spaceship Earth, Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie will take their places, along with Chip and Dale posing for a "Fresh Epcot" selfie and guest photo op.
Perennial Flower and Garden favorites such as the English Tea Garden, Butterflies on the Go, special kids' activities, and Ask An Expert will be returning. Illuminated topiary and play gardens will light up at night for a whole new festival experience.
Throughout the event, Disney horticulturists and garden experts will conduct seminars, sharing tips and secrets for you to try at home.
70,000 bedding plants will surround the Future World east and west lakes and 220 mini-gardens will be floating out on the water.
Don't forget to pick up one of the special gift cards that are created for this event too! They're tiny and are attached to a bracelet made out of what looks like an old telephone cord. Take a look at the 2017 edition below.
