Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Activities – Cars 2 Race Around World Showcase, Tea Garden Tour

 

Last month I shared nearly 500 photos from the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival that encompassed both Future World and World Showcase. Since then, we've been exploring some of the activities that the Festival has to offer, here are just a few!

Each of these events is free with paid admission to Epcot during the Festival!

This past weekend, a friend pointed us in the direction to pick up booklets for the Cars 2 Race around World Showcase. Actually, you can pick up the booklets in any of the countries included, but it was easier to get ours from the cast member at this location near the Cars 2 topiary at the front of World Showcase.  Once you have your booklet, you pick up stamps at the following locations: United Kingdom, France, Italy, United States, Japan – and the first location in the photo will give a Brazil stamp. The booklet also has some nice puzzles and word finds. It's a great souvenir! We also just put up a video of the Cars 2 Lightning McQueen topiary.

* One friend of mine was told that this activity was just for kids, but we did it with no problem – as did many of our adult friends.

This week we also took the English Tea Garden Tour at the United Kingdom pavilion – I've been wanting to do this for years, but the timing to get tickets never seemed to work out.  I was able to get our tickets just an hour before the 4pm tour – it was wonderful! We learned a lot about tea (including that the Camellia sinensis plant is the base for all teas), and we even received a two tea bag samples at the end of the tour.  Hold on to your tickets – you will trade them at the end of the tour for the samples.

We had an hour to walk around, here is a kids activity for Go Go Squeez (my favorite park snack – I buy it on Amazon with the less expensive subscribe and save option):
