We attended a media preview of the 2019 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival and got to take a first look (and taste!) of what to expect at this year’s festival.  The 90-day event is Central Florida’s biggest and most spectacular harbinger of spring.  The popular festival will feature dozens of Disney-crafted topiaries and beds of multi-colored blooms that transform the Epcot landscape into a floral extravaganza.

From March 6 to June 3, new sights, sounds and flavors of spring will envelop Walt Disney World Resort guests during the 26th Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.  Guests will also enjoy edible delights, gardens to play in and an expanded lineup for the Garden Rocks Concert Series.  With so much to see and do, your whole family will uncover something new with every single visit!
