Flower and Garden Festival 2013


Epcot's International Flower and Garden Festival ended about three or four weeks ago but I wanted to post some pictures I took of the two month long event.  This was my first year attending.  There was a pretty impressive collection of Disney character topiaries.

For some reason all of the Disney Princesses didn't have faces.  Maybe human faces are too difficult to create.  It was a little creepy.

They did an awesome job with Tick Tock from Peter Pan



Also for the first time in the 20 years of this event, Epcot set up different food booths similar to the ones during The Food and Wine Festival.  Although I didn't find the food as tasty as the Food and Wine Festival's, it was a nice touch.  The lines were not long at all.  This makes me wonder if they're going to scrap the food booths for next year.

This was my favorite dish located at the food booth in The American Adventure Pavilion.  The Beef Brisket on the left was melt in your mouth goodness.

Also new this year were the Monsters University topiary.  And of course, my favorite thing to come out of the event is the Flower and Garden Duffy Bear!

I love topiary so much! The way it was made, it feels like they have souls and they seem like moving.

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should write more about this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people do not speak about such topics. To the next! Best wishes!!
