3/8 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Opening Day – 300 Photos! Fantasia, Pixar, Pixie Garden & More

 

Watch our two narrative videos of the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival here!

Here are some photos of the flower quilt (Festival Blooms) and roses with the Imagination and Land pavilions behind them. One of my favorite parts of the Festival is this display, which this year features butterfly and flower designs.

The sand sculpture to promote Disneynature's Chimpanzee was just getting started. Last year the sand sculpture was based on the film African Cats. I'm not sure if it's due to the new location, but there was more interest in it than I've ever seen! I enjoy watching a huge block of sand become a piece of art.

Canada is one of my favorite countries in Epcot's World Showcase. Victoria Gardens is always gorgeous, and flowers are almost always added to the rock work during the Flower and Garden Festival. Bambi, Thumper and Flower used to often be in Canada, but are currently part of Bambi's Butterfly Tent.

The English Tea Garden is another yearly favorite. I highly recommend the Tea Garden Tour, we've learned a lot about the different teas! It's a free tour.

I learned about Twinings Cold Brew Tea during the Tea Garden Tour last year. I now buy it off of Amazon (these were from my backpack, I bring it for my water).

We took a break for fries (chips) – my favorite fries on Walt Disney World property! The menu item was taken off the sign at the Yorkshire County Fish Shop very recently, but they can still be ordered.
