Living with the Land Celebrates EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival 2024 with Classic Stories, Including “Alice in Wonderland” (Photos, Video)

Hi everyone!

We rode Living with the Land yesterday after noticing earlier in the week that displays were being set up for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, which opened on Wednesday, February 28th, 2024. The seasonal displays inside the greenhouses celebrate beloved Disney stories, including “The Little Mermaid”, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and “Alice in Wonderland”, tied together with the horticulture theme.

Here is our video of Living with the Land from yesterday. We only rode once and I am still noticing details! We will have to ride again soon for more photos.

Following the video, I have over 30 photos.

We are starting with the arrival to the greenhouses.

The first story we experience is “The Little Mermaid”. There is a shelf with a variety of items, including a seashell, a small globe and pearls.

Nearby, a “The Little Mermaid” book is in the sand.

A net and other items can be found through the scene.

A candelabra with a knife, spoon and fork is on top.

What I didn’t realize when taking this photo on the opposite side of the boat is that these hanging plants resemble jellyfish. So instead of just looking at the shelf, there is much more to the display.

The plants look like succulents.

A large chest includes pearls. And what I didn’t notice and didn’t photograph specifically are what look like tentacles coming out of the sand (to the right here). I will photograph those soon.

A crab figure is also part of the scene.

The displays feature signs that say Living with the Land’s Edible Flower Garden, as part of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.

To the right, it looks like a starfish in succulents.

This Mickey tree has a red ribbon on it – at first, I thought it was for Minnie, but it designates Snow White.

There is a “Snow White” display coming up. Birds (not real) fly around the scene.

The book “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” is on a table, along with a pie, rolling pin, apples and bread.

There are gnomes and birds around the Wishing Well.

There is also a birdhouse and planters above.

Here is one more look at the table setting.

We are on to the next story!

But first, before leaving, there is a box of gems – finishing the “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” theme.

Lettuce is being grown with a Mickey shape.

Lettuce is also being grown with “EPCOT” written out. The lettuce and other food grown is used at EPCOT.

Next, a “Winnie the Pooh” picnic scene features flower pots reminiscent of Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and more. There is a bee flying above.

The bee can be seen in the middle of the frame. A Hunny pot and “Winnie the Pooh” book are part of the scene.

There is also a honey container behind the “Winnie the Pooh” book.

A flower pot features bees.

There is a vegetable garden that mentions the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. It is also themed to “Winnie the Pooh”, with “Letus”, “Kerits” and more.

We pass by a Mickey shaped squash.

The last story will be for “Alice in Wonderland”.

It looks like someone was painting the roses red.

Cards dangle (to the right).

The Edible Flower Garden includes Cheshire Cat and it looks like a caterpillar in blue.

A table is set for the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

A flower pot is themed to the Mad Hatter.

Small icons include the White Rabbit and mushrooms.

An “Alice in Wonderland” book is set on a chair.

There are teapots, vessels that say “Drink Me” and “Eat Me’, along with cups and saucers.

The White Rabbit sits in the middle of the table. And check out that Mad Hatter inspired cup and saucer with a pocket watch on it. Cards sit nearby.

I love the creativity of the EPCOT horticulture Cast Members!

If you are visiting during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival (which runs through May 27th, 2024), I recommend visiting Living with the Land to view these thoughtfully designed displays.
