Will you be visiting the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival with your kids this spring? If so you’re in luck! There are lots of special activities and experiences for little ones and their families to enjoy throughout the event this year. Here’s a quick look at some of fun that is in store for you courtesy of Disney:
Nature Works Everywhere
Kids will absorb amazing tips on how to create gardens that will help their school yards filter water, provide welcoming habitats and improve soil quality.
Butterflies on the Go
Visit this foliage-filled exhibit to view a kaleidoscope of butterflies fluttering in every direction. Kids will have an opportunity to observe several species up-close, learn about their life cycles and may even witness them emerging from cocoons.
Music Garden Melodies Playground
Hum your favorite tune on the way to a rockin’ fun zone that’s as sweet as nectar. Starring Disney’s “Fab Five” topiaries, including bandleader Mickey Mouse and his fellow members Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto and Donald Duck, this outdoor wonderland is filled with hands-on amusement and even lights up after dark.
Children can express their creativity by playing instruments like drums, chimes and xylophones—and tap into their adventurous side by tackling state-of-the-art net climbers. Music-themed plants also add a clever touch to this sonic scene.
Unearth sources of inspiration to construct your own wildlife-friendly spaces at home.
See an incredible species of small migratory songbirds that have undergone an impressive 3,000-mile journey from the Brazilian Amazon to raise their families at Walt Disney World Resort.
Cactus Road Rally Interactive Play Garden
Topiary buddies Mater and Lightning McQueen invite you to relax and recharge while your kids race around in a desert-themed mini park. Inspired by the Disney•Pixar film Cars, this playful area features a canopied jungle gym and eye-catching cacti. As a bonus, enjoy an “I Spy” moment by taking turns pointing out the various auto parts scattered among colorful flower beds.
Ranger Mickey and Friends
Pose for a family photo with this spectacular topiary and then find your closest neighborhood park with the help of the National Park Foundation and the National Park Service.
