Epcot in Full Bloom

By: Nick

Back on March 2nd, Barbie and I took a cruise, with one of our stops being Cape Canaveral. We took an excursion over to Epcot to have lunch at Le Cellier and to photograph the topiaries throughout the park for the International Flower and Garden Festival, which officially started on March 5th and runs through May 18th.
Spring arrives today in the Northern Hemisphere, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share some photos of those topiaries, as well as other flowers in bloom.

Directly behind Spaceship Earth, we find these beauties depicting Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto.



The flowers around and in the water features in Future World are beautiful.





Heading into World Showcase, we are greeted by Sorcerer Mickey, as well as other characters from Fantasia.






Around to Canada, we find Bambi, Flower, and Thumper.


The gardens in Canada are lovely regardless of time of year.


The United Kingdom has several Topiaries as well as a Tea Garden.






Around to France, where there are Princesses and their Princes, as well as trees blossoming. 



Beauty and the Beast topiaries can also be found here as well.


Continuing around World Showcase, we have Miss Piggy and Kermit, promoting "Muppets Most Wanted", which opens in theaters tomorrow!


In Germany, we are greeted by Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.


Even though Barbie and I took several photos of this display, we managed to miss getting a photo of Happy.



Rafiki and Simba at the Outpost.


Pandas in China and a troll in Norway.



There were a few areas that weren't yet viewable when we were there, as well as topiaries we probably missed, so there is even more to enjoy at Epcot if you visit during the Flower and Garden Festival!
