The Complete guide to Walt Disney World's EPCOT in Spring

EPCOT Topiary Snow White


EPCOT’s (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) International Flower and Garden Festival at Walt Disney World Florida takes place from March - late May each year. We were fortunate to be there in April 2018 to see the floral displays. The festival has been running since 1994.   
                           
Topiary and Floral Displays
There are dozens of Disney themed topiary/floral displays, mostly found around the various World Showcase pavilions. The detail was fantastic. My favourites were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – which were impossible to photograph in the one photo. The topiaries are maintained by a huge horticultural team outside of EPCOT normal operating hours.

EPCOT - Flower Garden Book
This booklet comes out in Spring, and is another free book where once you complete a page, you add the stickers. The stickers are already supplied in the book. Aimed more at adults, this is something kids can also assist with. The activities to complete mostly revolve around sampling the various foods around EPCOT.

The Goodness Garden Butterfly House
The Butterfly garden is a temporary structure that you walk through, set up in Spring each year that has about 10 native species of butterfly. There are apparently about 1000 butterflies in the enclosure. My daughter A.J loved the butterfly garden. You could actually pick up and hold the butterflies – and now A.J wants us to create a butterfly garden at home. I must say, its quite peaceful inside the butterfly house (despite all the people). Something about fluttering butterflies is quite calming. This was actually for us, one of the many highlights of EPCOT.
