Spring has arrived early at Epcot with today’s return of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

The event, which will run through May 19, features more than 100 Disney-themed topiaries, including floral versions of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Phineas and Ferb, Lightning McQueen and Mater, among others.

Looks like one topiary in particular is having a lot of fun celebrating the festival’s return. Check it out:

And have you had the chance to try some of the Garden Marketplace kiosks that are featured at this year’s festival? What a cool addition to this year’s event.

The selection of Garden Marketplace culinary creations ranges from smokehouse barbecue and shrimp with grits to Zellwood corn to sweet “frushi” made with fresh fruits and coconut rice. Original beverages are also available, like Hot Sun Tomato Wine from Florida Orange Groves Winery and Dole Whip with Spiced Rum, as well as non-alcoholic drinks like Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade and Wild Berry Slush.
