When the parks put up prices, I moan. I know that you do too!
We, after all, only have so much cash to squirt Disney’s way with our Magicbands!
Sometimes the monotony of regular admission price increases, parking lot fees and even a bottle of filtered tap water (Dasani), make us a little Grumpy when we should be Happy!
Sometimes, when it comes to amazing events like the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, I kind of feel a little Dopey for moaning about a few extra bucks.
It’s the ‘free’ stuff that really makes a difference with Disney. It really does.
The sheer scale of the annual springtime food and gardening festival is overwhelming. At each and every turn of Epcot’s 300 acre site is adorned with glorious floral and topiary arrangements. If that sounds dull, then think again, as the character themed creations truly dazzle the eye with their brightly colored designs.
I’m not sure how many plants make up the colorful event, but unofficially, I can reliably say that is probably bazillions! Check out the WDW News today Pictures.
I care less about the HGTV celebs twittering about the best time to plant a turnip, but the sheer beauty of an already stunning theme park is lifted to a whole new level for this event.
The Flower Power Concert series is something else though. Some excellent artists are here in Orlando in 2014 and whatever your tastes, there is definitely something for you, even if you’ve never heard of these one time celebrity acts! The upbeat music of yesteryear is well worth making a special place in your diary!
