Flower and Graden Festival Epcot 2013

Now through May 19th see Epcot in full bloom! Celebrating its 20th year - Mickey, Minnie, Goofy Donald Daisy and Pluto are having a party at the front entrance of Epcot.

 This year, with more than 70 Disney character topiaries, informative presentations, butterfly gardens, marketplaces, festival farms, kids spots and for the first time this year tasty treats at over a dozen food marketplaces scattered around World Showcase.

The Festival Center, located at its usual spot ( between Mission Space and Energy ) is home to the different stages for flower and garden presentations. Several Disney horticulture speakers and HGTV host will be there throughout the festival. All of the presentations are free, but have limited seating. The Festival Center is open daily from 10-5

Roger Swain, who was the speaker at the first Epcot F&G festival is back again this year only for 4 shows in the 2 days. (Wed Thurs)

Some of the presentation have freebies like this pink F&G baggie. Passports similar to the Food and Wine Festival are available for free and is a nice way to keep track parts of the festival you've seen and which you have not..


New Topiaries this year, Mike & Sully from Monsters University greet guest as they enter World Showcase.

Opened a few weeks ago, the Oz Garden at the Rose Garden is the largest playground out of the 3 at this years festival. Just follow the yellow brick... flowers.
You can find the Cars topiaries making a pit stop near the newly designed TestTrack.
Disney Fairies are inside the Butterfly Garden this year. Always fun to see the Butterfly Garden At Epcot

Some of the topiaries have been moved around this year, but, most are back from last years festival.
