Every year Epcot turns into a beautiful collection of flowers, sounds, artwork and so much more at the annual International Flower and Garden Festival. The festival starts today and runs for 90 days (up from last years 75) until May 31st. That is plenty of time for you to get out there, believe me when I say this is not something you want to miss!

For the children there is the Music Gardens Melodies Playground is an interactive area for the children, Cactus Road Rally Garden Radiator Springs interactive play zone, Tinker Bell’s Butterfly House, and the Mike & Sulley’s Monstrous Garden. For the adults there is ask the expert, as well as seminars with experts sharing tips and secrets for you to try at home.
