Summer is quickly approaching which means the end of our favorite springtime celebration, Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. Because this year’s festival was cut short by the global crisis, I thought it would fun to take a look at all the Epcot Flower and Garden topiaries over the years.
This festival is always great at delighting guest’s taste buds at the eleven Outdoor Kitchens.
But the star of the show is the natural garden creations conjured up by Disney Cast Members.
