The Epcot Flower & Garden Festival 2012 opened today. It really is a great festival held at Epcot at no additional entrance fee. There are some wonderful topiary characters and beautiful display flower beds to see. Even the little railway lay out near Germany is flower & garden festival themed. Starting today the festival goes on through to May 20th.
There are some ‘educational’ presentations – I’ve never attended any of them, there aren’t enough hours at Epcot for me.
You’ll find more than 100 topiaries throughout Epcot theme park—including more than 75 Disney character topiaries! This year, highlights include character topiaries representing Buzz, Woody and Lotso from the Disney•Pixar film Toy Story 3, Lightning McQueen and Mater from the Disney•Pixar film Cars 2.
At the weekend there are flower power concerts held in the America Gardens Theatre featuring music from the 60s and 70s.
