Disney’s Epcot Garden Festival

So I decided to check out the hype behind this years’s Epcot Garden Festival. I was told they added some fancy food to their already gorgeous blooms!

And to no surprise at all… Disney impressed me again.

Here’s a beautiful Magnolia.

And thanks to Tinkerbell and her fairies, their butterfly garden gets better every year. This year they added some new pieces to make it look more like the movie…

But the newest part, and one of my new favorites, is the booths with food and drinks. I didn’t get to try everything (like I do at the Annual Food and Wine Festival) but I did pretty good. Here’s some pictures of what I tried.
