Epcot's Canada Pavilion: Victoria Gardens
The Victoria Gardens can be found at Epcot in the Canada Pavilion. Guests stroll through it after exiting O' Canada! and admire it charming the sides of the walkway that leading to Le Cellier Steakhouse. In my opinion it's one of the prettiest spots in all of Epcot and maybe even all of Walt Disney World. Yet, set down and back away from the World Showcase promenade as it is, many people walk right by.
Victoria Gardens in the Epcot's Canada Pavilion was inspired by the breathtaking Butchart Gardens of British Columbia. The Disney horticulturists make sure that the gardens flowers provide a beautiful visage no matter what time of year that you visit. Inspirations are continually pulled from the Canadian landscape, such as the covering of white flowers through the winter to represent the Canadian snows. With over 154 rose bushes and seasonal displays, this is one of the largest manicured gardens on the resort property. The stand of Maple Trees planted in the pavilion honors Canada's national symbol.
Next time you're strolling through the Canada pavilion take a few moments to relax and soak up the spirit of the garden, notice the delicate floral elements and the subtle ways that the design team has used plant life to reflect the seasons of Canada even in the tropical Florida climate.
