annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival kicks off March 3 –
earlier than ever – and continues for 75 days through May 16, 2010, with
bold strokes of seasonal color and brand-new topiary whimsy. Last year’s
festival began March 18; now Walt Disney World guests get a head start on
the gardening season as they explore exhibits and activities geared toward
discovery and outdoor fun. Even before spring has sprung, Donald Duck and
his topiary pals set up camp in full floral color to celebrate the Great
Outdoors at the Epcot front entrance. The elaborate topiary with a North
American theme, live waterfall and pond features Goofy in a fly-fishing
misadventure, Daisy Duck roasting marshmallows over a campfire and Pluto in
his “pup tent.” It’s a must-stop photo op for guests as soon as they pass
through the park turnstiles. Packing more floral punch this year, the
festival showcases nearly 100 expertly crafted topiaries – including a new
American Gothic Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.
