Archive: Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival in Walt Disney World

Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival started earlier this month, and because we won't make it to this year's festival, we wanted to share some of our favorite photos from the 2015 and 2016 festivals. (Photos from our  2017 trip can be viewed here.)

Flower and Garden is definitely one of our favorite times to go to Disney (after Halloween) and it makes me so sad that we weren't able to attend this year or last year.

Maybe next year!
