Well, today is the last day of the festival and to see it out this year, we’ve got a few posts to share that will help you re-live the flowers and fun or, if you weren’t able to make it this year, what you have to look forward to in the future!
First, let’s take a look back at some posts here on the Makin’ Memories blog:
American Gothic Mickey and Minnie Topiaries
Italy Pavilion – Lady and the Tramp Topiaries
China Pavilion – Bromeliad Dragon
Be sure to check out our Facebook page and photos to see some photos taken at the Festival while we were there in April.
And finally, we leave you with some posts from around the “World” featuring the 2010 Flower and Garden Festival.
The Only WDWorld Blog has many photos of the flowers and topiaries from this year’s festival.
The Disney Every Day Blog featured some of this year’s festival merchandise.
Attractions Magazine has an article full of photos and some video as well and also plenty of detailed information about the festival.
AllEars also has a blog featuring photos from the festival.
This year’s Flower and Garden Festival is in it’s last weekend now and we’ve got one last photo from it to share today. The American Pavilion showcased a topiary scene made up of Goofy, Pluto, and Donald doing a little gardening to celebrate the outdoors. If you didn’t get to visit the festival this year I hope you will be able to in the years to come. It’s definitely a great time of year to visit Epcot.

This year’s Flower and Garden Festival had the cutest little, what I call, character garden located at the entrance to the World Showcase. It was part of the American Gothic Mickey and Minnie display and carried over to the garden bed behind it, in front of the World Showcase Lagoon. Various characters were getting in the gardening spirit by growing a different fruit or vegetable. One example, not pictured below, was Peter Pan’s Peas. Below you’ll see Stitch’s Strawberries and Mickey’s Beanstalk Beans. This was a cute addition and if you’re at the Festival in its last few days, be sure to check and see how their garden is growing.

The gang is busy celebrating the Great Outdoors this year as that is the theme for the 2010 Flower and Garden Festival. They’ve set up camp and are busy doing all the fun activities the great outdoors has to offer. Just keep an eye on Goofy with that fishing pole!

The China pavilion brings out the Chinese zodiac each year for the Flower and Garden Festival along with the Bromeliad Dragon topiary you see wading in the water.

In my personal opinion, Italy is one of the most beautiful pavilions during the Flower and Garden Festival. Alongside their topiary scene they have so many different potted plants in pretty pinks, purples, and white. Whether it’s during the festival or not, I say you should take your time when walking around through this pavilion.

This year’s Flower and Garden Festival included many old favorites in the topiary department, along with some fresh, new displays. One such display was the American Gothic Mickey and Minnie found at the entrance to the World Showcase.
