Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival is in full bloom, running longer than ever through July 5! At my Glass Slipper Concierge Gold Key Advisor meeting, I had the chance to spend two days in the park soaking up all the gorgeous topiaries, Florida sunshine, and decadent treats.
The reimagined Epcot entrance is now complete, although Future World has a lot of work left! There are still construction walls everywhere with no end in sight.
Today, let’s focus on the spectacular topiaries of beloved animals and Disney characters that you’ll find all over the park! These magnificent creations are cultivated with care by Disney horticulturists.
In Future World, you will find a few favorite storybook friends.
Mexico once again brings the Three Caballeros. The blackberry margarita is no longer a festival exclusive, by the way! You can find it any day at the margarita stand outside of the Mexico pavilion.
Italy is breathtaking by day or night. Lady and the Tramp are my favorite of all of the plantings!
Germany brings Snow White and Dopey this year.
I love the picturesque placement of the dragon in Japan!
The gorgeous Beauty and the Beast are back in France. And, Remy can be found near the entrance of the France expansion opening October 1 with a new ride and restaurant!
England is quite the cast of characters! You’ll find Peter Pan and Pooh friends throughout this pavilion.
Canada features Kermit and Miss Piggy this year. I love Piggy atop her suitcases.
Disney friends aren’t just out in topiary form! We happened to see Mickey and Friends on a processional and Mary greeting guests in England. On past visits I’ve seen Pooh, Joy, Alice, Anna and Elsa, and a Princess processional.
If you have the chance, I urge you to stop for the Voices of Liberty at the American Gardens Theater. They are sensational!
As much as I love sunshine, twilight brings its own beauty!
And we ended our night with a full moon!
Hope your Monday was magical!

We continue to be blown away by the thoughtful, practical and comprehensive precautions Disney has in place to safely welcome guests and cast members. I don’t have all of the words to convey how special it felt to be back. We laughed, we played, we ate too much, and we felt a level of happiness we hadn’t had in too long.
