Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival: March 6 – June 3, 2019

The festival runs for 90-days and features flowers, topiaries, themed food, drinks and entertainment. 2019 marks the 26th year of the festival. New for the year will be a Bo Peep and Sheep topiary from the upcoming Toy Story 4 as well as a new Family Play Zone inspired by the film. Special gardens will feature butterflies, bamboo and Shakespeare’s metaphoric plants.
