In just a few short weeks one of my favorite festivals begin, that is The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Its the 25th Anniversary. I can’t believe its the 25th Anniversary already. The dates for this year will be February 28, 2018 thru May 28, 2018. Going to this festival is included in the daily park entrance fee. This festival has always amazed me how beautifully colorful the flowers the Disney Topiaries are, I wish I knew how to design a topiary in my yard.
There is a wonderful Garden Rock series with performances by many well known performers. The Garden Rocks is held at the American Gardens Theatre at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.

There are also Outdoor Kitchens for you to taste delicious cuisine. This year they plan to have 15 stops featuring spring garden offerings. We tried a number of different tasty foods and some drinks as well when Alicia and I went in 2014 here are some pictures.
Besides the food there are Garden Tours, new interactive kids play areas, dining packages at certain Epcot restaurants will pair a fabulous dinner with reserved seating for your concert, then make sure you look not just at the topiaries but the gardens with all the special plants that are all a bloom. Also returning this year will be the Egg-Stravaganza scavenger hunt and hand crafted Festival merchandise for sale that will bring you wonderful memories at home too. Beside to check out the Disney Parks Blog often to see new updates of what else you may find this year.
Enjoy your day and trip and the festival if you get to go, I really hope you do. I am so excited that Keith & I will be able be at this years festival.
Until next time have a very Magical Day.
