See why one of the best times to visit Epcot with kids is during the annual Flower and Garden Festival.
We just got back from our latest Disney family trip. It was just a family weekend getaway to this years flower and garden festival at Epcot. I must say that although the wine and food festival is pretty great, my favorite festival is the Flower and Garden festival. The main reason it’s my favorite is because of all the playgrounds they add.
My kids always struggle with going to Epcot. Although they love the front of the park with the rides and Innovations, they hate walking through the countries. For whatever reason, during this festival, they set up four play grounds. What a difference this made for my kids. Each playground was different and could accommodate several age ranges. My kids enjoyed each playground, but they especially like the one on the way into the countries the most. It’s the Weeblos playground and you can’t miss it as you enter and head towards Canada there it is! (The pictures above are of this playground.)
I really wish that they had Epcot set up like this year round!
Here are some photos from the festival back in 2008.
I’m not a huge fan of Epcot with small kids, but I must say that when they are having their Flower and Garden Festival I absolutely love it!
The Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is a great reason to visit Epcot. With fresh food, live music, and educational seminars, there’s something for everyone at this annual event. So whether you’re a green thumb or just looking to enjoy some time in the sun, be sure to add the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival to your list of springtime activities!
