Welcome back, one and all, to our 30 day countdown to Epcot’s 30th Anniversary. My co-host, Beth (Pursuing the Magic and The Magical Blogorail) and I are so appreciative of our authors, and all who stop in daily to get a dose of magical nostalgia! Today’s guest blogger, Annie from Walt Disney World- Travel , will take us back to 1993; and the magical beginning of a Disney fan favorite.
Epcot 1993 – Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival
Epcot Center, it also marked the beginning of something very beautiful indeed,
the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. It only makes sense that Epcot, a place of forward
thinking and utopian ideals, would create something as fabulous as the Flower & Garden Festival.
In Walt Disney’s original EPCOT designs, gardens and parks
played the crucial function of general beautification as well as recreational
environments. Experimental Prototype
Community of Tomorrow never developed in the manner that Walt had
anticipated, but the Flower and Garden Festivals definitely fulfill the role of
beautification and recreation.
People attend the Epcot International Flower and Garden
Festival in order to be uplifted and enlightened. The Disney character based
topiaries uplift the spirit while the educational gardening information about
the creation and maintenance of such beautiful grounds enlighten the mind.
Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival has become
a true Disney Celebration with concert series, special activities for kids, TV
personalities, special displays, etc. Every year holds a new adventure for
those who visit Epcot from early March to mid May.
