The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival takes place at Walt Disney World, last for 75 days from March 4 – May 17, 2015.
The festival is a unique opportunity to not only enjoy the delights of Epcot but to enjoy new food flavors from the outdoor kitchens and enjoy the lush landscape and fun disney themed topiaries created by the talented Cast Members.
The Disney themed topiaries are amazing and one of the highlights of the festival. There are over 100 topiaries on display during the festival and over a dozen Disney themed topiaries on display all through Epcot. Disney characters on display include Mickey & Minnie, Daisy & Donald, Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Bambi, Snow White and many more.
Four new topiaries make their debut this year and include Anna & Elsa and Chip & Dale and Miss Piggy.
Do you like to try new foods? Then you are in luck because in addition to the wonderful food offered at Epcot throughout the year you can experience exciting food and beverages offered for a limited time at the outdoor kitchens.
This Shrimp and Stone Ground Grits with Andouille Sausage, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes and Cilantro is featured at Florida Fresh Outdoor Kitchen.
There are over eleven outdoor kitchens with fantastic food and beverage options to keep any foodie satisfied. New to the festival this year is Botanas Botánico located near the Morocco pavilion. Here is where you can sample the flavors of Latin America with items such as Sweet corn pancake, Seafood ceviche and Coconut tres leches.
