The 23rd Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, the popular spring festival at Walt Disney World known for its tasty edibles, sweeping floral displays and dazzling topiary creations, starts tomorrow March 2, 2016.
Guests of the 2016 festival can celebrate spring with culinary creations and libations from the festival’s thirteen Outdoor Kitchens, including the new Cider House and La Isla Fresca offerings.
New topiaries include the welcome display at the entrance featuring Donald and Daisy, along with nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, which is inspired by a 1943 Donald Duck comic book called “The Victory Garden.”
There will also be a Ranger Mickey topiary garden in Future World, which will offer a great photo op featuring a Spaceship Earth backdrop to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Parks Service.
Learn to tame your green thumb with complimentary hands-on Gardening Seminars each weekend.
Also on the weekends, the Garden Rocks concert series will present pop bands with music spanning four decades. This year’s lineup kicks off March 4-6 with The Orchestra starring former members of ELO.
Fun Fresh Weekends will take place weekends in April, as well, adding to the festival offerings:
- April 1-3 — Art in the Garden Weekend spotlights nature through the works of plein air artists
