It is so hard to believe that spring is in the air already. The best thing about spring in Central Florida is the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. Year after year, many Disney fanatics make plans to visit this festival and the best thing about this year is that they have extended the festival’s time frame. During this festival, guests will be treated to a variety of exhibits and demonstrations surrounding all things green. You will be able to see unique and enchanting topiaries, get tips from home and garden experts and enjoy some seasons foods featured in the Outdoor Kitchens at the World Showcase.
In addition to being able to spend time exploring the Flower and Garden Festival, many visitors want to be close to the action. That is why many choose to stay one of the resorts located right next to Epcot. These resorts are the best option for those planning their entire vacation around the festival and do not have plans to explore any other park while at Disney World. These resorts will definitely keep you close to the flower and garden action without having to spend a lot of time waiting for bus transportation to and from the theme park.
If you are staying at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn or at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts you will be able to walk to the International Gateway and enter right there in the World Showcase. That is where many of the festivities for the Flower and Garden Festival occur, including the Outdoor Kitchens, and is a great place to kick off your day. Especially since just about everyone else will be starting off their day by entering through the front entrance.
You can also choose to stay at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort. Staying there still puts you within walking distance to the International Gateway. You can also easily take one of the Friendship Boats, which are also available to guests staying at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn.
