    TRIP REPORT: EPCOT's 15th Annual International Flower and Garden Festival(100 PHOTOS)

    The 15th Annual EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival March 19 - June 1 at Walt Disney World Resort, is an explosion of Technicolor beauty, swirling with the intoxicating fragrance of over 30 million blooms! Recently my partner Philip and I visited the event, and as usual were swept away by the stunning gardens and displays. At no other time of the year are the grounds of EPCOT lovelier than they are during this popular event! This year the festival has been expanded from 60, to a record 75 days! Multiple plantings are done during the course of the festival to assure that the gradens look their very best. Please enjoy this glimpse at just a small fraction of what this fantastic annual event has to offer.


    Huge topiaries at the entry plaza reflect the "Fun In The Sun" theme for this year's festival

    Philip and I enjoy the eye popping chartreuse color of this plant so much, that we have beds filled with it at our own house!

    Thanks for posting these beautiful and vivid photos.

    It's nice to see Donald represented by no fewer than two topiaries -- and at least one of Daisy, too.

    I also like the logo on the golf shirt -- especially the all-caps EPCOT...
