What To Expect From Epcot’s Flower And Garden Festival 2020

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

With Epcot’s Festival of the Arts wrapping up, it’s time to welcome spring and Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival. Since 1994, Epcot has been throwing this gorgeous flower filled festa and covering the park in thousands of artistically placed blooms showcasing the skill of Disney’s horticulture team. From topiaries, to landscape art, to beautiful flower canopies, the park is transformed into something of a greenhouse fairytale for a couple of months from late winter to late spring. Here is what to expect from Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival in 2020.

Event Dates: March 4 – June 1, 2020

The Flowers

First and foremost, the biggest draw to this springtime event are the topiaries, gardens and exhibits which are strewn about the park for visitors to enjoy. Disney’s uber talented horticulturalists truly showcase their talent to bring us a variety of delightfully whimsical flower displays that we novice gardeners couldn’t imagine creating. As in past years, we can expect there to be carefully thought out, meticulously designed works of floral art throughout the park for us to gaze upon in awe.
