Disney's Epcot's Flower & Garden Festival 2011

Living just 20 minutes away from Disney, you could imagine I have been to the parks a million times. Surprisingly I have never been to Epcot for the Flower and Garden Festival or the Food and Wine Festival which is later in the year. So I made sure to go this time and get ideas for my own garden.

As you walk around Epcot you come across various topiaries of famous Disney characters that are really cool to look at and figure out how they are made.
 Micky & Minnie Mouse

 Aladin

 Beauty & the Beast

 Cinderella & Prince Charming

 Princess Aurora & Prince Philip

 Peter Pan, Captain Hook, and Tick-tock the Crocodile.

 Snow White

Lady & the Tramp

And there were a whole bunch more that I missed some how....

I really enjoyed looking at their potted flower arrangements since that is what I do with my garden. I like how full the pots look, which I think was achieved with all the different pot heights, and of course an abundance of flowers. Unfortunately they are all basically annuals...
 It was a beautiful day.




 These were my favorite pot arrangements.
Lastly, I saw this wooden tower with various slots filled with dirt used in the vegetable garden located in the U.S.A. section of the park. I wish I could figure out how to make one because it saves on garden space. It was probably 5 foot tall.
