Whether you’re a serious gardener…or someone who dabbles in the yard from time to time (like me), there’s a good chance something will stick out and inspire you during a walk around the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Disney Horticulture Manager Eric Darden and his team make sure there’s something for everyone. And today, Eric is sharing what’s updated and new at this year’s event.

You should also try to catch a special Festival celebration if you can. I recently enjoyed “Art in the Garden” and will be checking out the Florida Farmer’s Market celebration on April 23 -25. The popular “I Dig Bugs” event also happens April 30 – May2.


  • I can’t wait 23 days (not that Im counting) I was there 2 years ago and it was amazing Imy husband and son are BIG Lion King fans it has a very personal attachment to us so cant wait to see some of the amazing topiaries xx

  • We were at Epcot on March 10. It was absolutely wonderful. I have never seen such beautiful topiaries and sculptured gardens and lawns. It was such a treat to be there at this time.

  • Will be there May 15th and 16th can not wait hope there is a lot of new stuff than what you had last year!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I can’t wait to see the magnificent gardening handiwork of Don Schoonover and his company. I understand it is magnificent and well worth the time!

  • How can I find out about all these different events happening throughout the Flower and Garden Festival? I have never heard of “Art in the Garden” or any special events before reading about them in this blog. Do they happen every year?
