Disney's Flower and Garden Festival

Hubby and I went on a date (squee!) the other evening to Epcot's Flower Festival. Every spring, Disney blows it out on floral and garden ideas at Epcot. We had fun taking pictures and smelling all of the lovely flowers and herbs along the way.

I love picking off the leaves of plants and smelling the different herbs. I think it's because I kill practically every plant that I buy. Currently I've got two plants still alive! (Brown but living) So seeing gardens like this totally blows my mind.

I've decided rosemary is my favorite.

There are 75 Disney character topiaries and 100 topiaries overall. It was fun finding them all. I was like this giddy little kid when I would find a new one (especially the Beauty and the Beast one, my fav movie). Hubby just laughed at me. 

Here are some of my favorite Disney character topiaries:

Rapunzel's Tower

100 Dalmatians

Sleeping Beauty

Christy, a date with my hubby AND going to a flower festival would both be amazing right now. Lucky you!

What a beautiful garden - I like the dogs the best :) Disney always does everything the best

It was a fun time. I'm lucky because since I work at Disney seasonally, I get in for free.

Great pictures! We were there on May 15th. I have some of the Flower Festival up on a slide show as well. That's so cool you can get in for free. It was my first trip to WDW (and FL), but I'd love to go back sometime.

If you ever do, email me. We'll have to get together for coffee. I don't live far from Disney. That would be so fun!

Will do! My ILs are huge Disney fans. They live in CA, but go to WDW a lot, too. This was the first time they got me there and they're already hinting at going back. :)
