Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Preview
While this year's International Food and Wine Festival at Epcot has just ended, already plans are in the works for the upcoming 2012 Flower and Garden Festival. Here is a preview of what guests can expect when that festival gears up in March.
This year's centerpiece will be based on the classic Disney film "Fantasia" and will feature a larger-than-life Mickey Mouse topiary on top of a twelve-foot floral mountain. Below Mickey will be flower versions of buckets and broomsticks, elephants, alligators and hippos.
Returning this year will be the "Cars 2" and "Toy Story 3" inspired topiaries. Guests can see Lightning McQueen and Mater in topiary form in the Japan pavilion while Buzz, Woody and Lotso will look over the Festival Center in Future World. In addition, the Flower Power concert series, HGTV Designers Stage, Bambi's Butterfly House and Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden will all return for this year's festival.
Guests can also look for new landscapes for the Norway and Italy pavilions.
The 2012 Flower and Garden Festival is set to run at Epcot March 7 through May 20.
