Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival Returns March 7

posted on March 5th, 2012 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


Who’s heading to Epcot this spring for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival?

This year’s event, which runs March 7-May 20, will feature the largest-ever Disney topiary (a Sorcerer Mickey) and a new Haiti: Garden of Many Colors display located in World Showcase. Guests can also enjoy weekend presentations from HGTV designers and hosts, as well as the Flower Power concert series, which features the music of the 1960s-70s. Kids’ favorites, like Bambi’s Butterfly House and the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden play area are back, too.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the work that went into creating this year’s festival.

One easy way to navigate through this year’s festival is to use the Epcot International Flower & Garden mobile site on your smartphone, which you can access by visiting epcotinbloom.com. The mobile version of this site has a map of the events, Disney topiaries and gardens, plus an audio tour and information on Flower Power concerts & HGTV presentations.

I’ll be there this weekend! My mother-in-law has never been to the Flower and Garden festival and she loves HGTV…. I’m excited to experience it with her!

I love the idea of using QR codes in to give guests more information during the festival. I think this is a fun way to provide more than just a description for flowers. Great concept!

I cant wait to go, looking forward to it. But with the passing of Davy Jones, I was wondering if Disney is planning on doing anything like tribute for the days he was planning on performing during the Flower Power Concert series.

Dear Ms. Fickley-Baker,

What a very cheerful event to be coming at the most opportune time, closing off a peculiar weather-wise winter and welcoming Spring with open blooms.

No one shows a garden or Topiary better than the gardens at any Disney property while the stunning displays at EPCOT are crowd pleasers and put a smile on the most discriminating face.

I hope to see the wonderful flowers one day soon during this event, I’ll keep dreaming….

Happy Blooms,
Jackie P.

Thank you, Disney! I am excited about the topiary hunt. I’m taking my girls on a field trip Monday, and this is perfect.
