    Heading to Disney last week of mar 2014. Hearing about the flower and garden festival. Can you tell me about it. Having a 8 and 13 year old coming with us

    Hi Mary,

    The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is lovely. My family and I visit often during the festival and are always amazed at the variety of additional activities to explore at Epcot during this time. Although specific details and dates have not been released for the 2014 festival, let me tell you some of the past experiences we have had that might be fun for your family.  

    Throughout Epcot, there are lovely topiaries of beloved Disney characters. There are also play areas added, which are typically themed and so much fun! Though your 13-year-old may be a little big for them, your 8-year-old might really enjoy them. There is also the Flower Power Concert Series, where you can see live performances from hit groups from the 1960s and 1970s. Last year's lineup included The Village People and Starship. As the festival is presented by HGTV, there are often seminars and demonstrations by HGTV personalities. Last year's lineup included Brandon Johnson of "My Yard Goes Disney" and David Bromstad of "ColorSplash." Please note that these are examples from last year and that this year's lineup may vary. A great addition in 2013 was garden-inspired marketplaces throughout World Showcase. These were a great place to get a fresh bite to eat. We will have to see if they return in 2014!

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Mary. Monitor the link above as updates will be posted as the festival draws closer. Please do not hesitate to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and ask if you have any further questions!
