The 2016 Epcot International Flower And Garden Festival in Walt Disney World is a celebration of spring and beauty. The festival runs until May 30, 2016.
Each year, spring is renewed and rejuvenated at the Epcot International Flower And Garden Festival in Walt Disney World. This beautiful two-month event takes place from March through May each year. The Epcot International Flower AndGarden Festival is a celebration of all things spring. It is my favorite time to visit Walt Disney World. From beautiful topiaries, to delicious food to hands-on learning, the festival connects us with this great planet we live on. Living on a very large fruit and vegetable farm, and growing a lot of plants in our greenhouses, makes me appreciate even more how much work is put forth by the cast members to make this festival bloom.
I was once again lucky to visit this year’s festival as part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Here are some highlights from the event as well as some photos I took along my journey around Epcot. Be sure to visit the Walt Disney World website for more information.

Disclosure: I was invited by Disney to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. I did pay a modest conference free to attend. I was not asked to write this post by Disney. As always, opinions 100% are my own.
