    My fiancé loves tropical plants, like monsteras. I am wondering where the best places on property are to see plants like this.

    Welcome to planDisney, Joshua.

    "The wilderness must be explored!" It sounds like your fiancé is someone who relishes an adventure in the great wide somewhere. Walt Disney World Resort is home to a plethora of flowers, gardens, trees, and topiaries. There's beauty everywhere at The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    My top suggestion would be to visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. It's almost as if Mickey and his pals planned a festival with your fiancé in mind. There are tons of stunning topiary displays of famous Disney characters and an abundance of beautiful gardens in bloom. I'm sure she'll particularly enjoy the Tropical Rainforest Garden in the Mexico Pavilion. There are so many gardens to explore, she might even discover a new favorite plant. Joshua, if you've never experienced Living with the Land, this classic EPCOT attraction reveals where many of the vegetables, fruits, and herbs that are used in Disney restaurants are grown. In fact, you can even taste the fresh produce and seafood from the attraction in Garden Grill Restaurant. Seriously, Joshua, there's so much to see (and taste!) at this festival that you might want to consider devoting a couple of days to it. That way you can experience everything at an enjoyable pace.

    Here's a thought for your next visit too: the Behind the Seeds Tour (currently unavailable) would give you both an opportunity to get an up-close glimpse of all the amazing plants, insects, and fish by visiting the four greenhouses that make up The Land Pavilion. Maybe pencil it in for next time.

    The other Theme Parks have wonderful plant life to appreciate too. For example, at Magic Kingdom Park, you can view the Victorian gardens, shade trees, and baskets on Main Street, USA. You can then trek through Adventureland to see the tropical plants and trees. Cut through to Liberty Square and you'll find a very old, giant oak tree. Fly to Fantasyland and you might even discover some character topiaries.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is also full of wild and wondrous plants, trees, and flowers. You'll find African and Asian varieties that are fascinating to behold. Did you know that there were over four million plants at this park on opening day alone! And guess what? Those plants have only grown and multiplied in the years since.

    Even Disney Resorts Collection hotels have some impressive displays. For example, you've got the flowers in Silver Creek at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, the bouquets at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and the tropical oasis in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.

    I guess what I'm trying to say, Joshua, is that, when it comes to plants, Walt Disney World has got whoozits and whatzits galore. I'm sure your fiancé will be more than satisfied. In fact, she'll be so impressed that her Prince Charming did some research so that her trip could be extra magical. 

    I hope that's helpful, Joshua. Thanks for stopping by planDisney.
