Epcot in Bloom

Sorceror Mickey at Epcot for the Flower and Garden Festival

Entering Epcot guests were greeted by a living topiary of Mickey in his sorceror robes.

This past Spring my parents visited the annual International Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot.  The event was sponsored by HGTV and had the usual stunning floral displays throughout the park.  Even though I was not able to attend this year I thought I would share some of these highlights courtesy of Dear Old Dad (with a few tweaks by yours truly!).

Spring is a perfect time to visit Epcot; not just for the flower show but for the perfect weather!
