Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival

Every year, for a few months in Spring, Epcot has their Flower and Garden Festival. The entire park is done up in tons of flowers, topiaries, plants and other gorgeous natural decoration. On Saturday, April 13th, we headed out for a few hours in the afternoon to get some pics.

It threatened to rain the entire day, making for some overcast shots, but it never quite did and the sun did come out intermittently. Epcot is made up of two areas; Future World with a focus on technology (and where most of the rides are) and World Showcase which is like a tour of countries around the world.

You can see all the beds of flowers as well as the floating flowers in the water.

This "waterfall" actually falls up! Outside of Imagination.

Just a pretty shot of the monorail going by and more of the floating flowers.
We'll be back again for more visits during his stay but it was a fun first afternoon at Walt Disney World!!
