It’s that time of year again! Epcot is in full bloom, and the International Flower and Garden Festival has begun for the 25th year!

I love this time of year in Florida. The weather is perfect, the sun is shining bright, and the Disney horticulturalists are working overtime to make Epcot beautiful!

What makes Epcot so special during the Festival? The topiaries of course!

Let’s take a look at what the horticulturalists have created this year!

2018 Flowers & Topiaries

The ponds near the Imagination and Test Track pavilions are covered with beautiful flowers in full bloom.

One of my favorite parts of the Flower and Garden Festival is the butterfly garden. In many spots near the butterfly tent you can see butterfly and flower topiaries.

If you've never seen this large Lightening McQueen topiary, you need to see it as soon as possible! it's pretty impressive.
