There are a ton of things to do at this year’s Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot, which runs from March 6th through May 19th 2013. Today we’ll have a look at the Festival Center, which is housed in the old Wonders of Life Pavilion between Universe of Energy and Mission: SPACE.The pavilion is open seasonally as the center for the Flower and Garden Festival as well as the Food and Wine Festival, which takes place every year in the fall. When you approach the entrance you are greeted by large colorful flowers and background music by the artists playing in the Flower Power Concert Series. Here’s a look back from the entrance toward Innoventions. The pavilion is a great location for the Festival Center, with its sixty-five foot high domed ceiling and large mobile hung from the center of the dome. Gardening experts and HGTV hosts share tips at the Spotlight, Designer’s and Greenhouse Stages with several daily presentations. Intermissions Cafe and shop: This year’s official Flower and Garden Festival t-shirt features a cute comic book-style Mickey Mouse mowing the lawn: In the back of the pavilion is a little museum about the history of Disney Horticulture. On the left side are a series of display cases that contain props that illustrate the creation process of Disney toparies. A circular display in the middle of the Horticulture Heritage area tells the story of Disney legend Morgan Bill Evans, who defined Disney theme park landscaping for half a century. On the right-side of the museum area is a wall with the history of Disney Horticulture through the decades, starting in 1950 with the creation of Disneyland. Finally, if you make it to the Festival Center this year you must check out the half hour film “Making of the Festival” at the HGTV Theater. It alternates with show segments from HGTV, but I found the film about the festival extremely entertaining and interesting. In it Disney employees and horticulturists involved with the preparations of the festival explain and show in great detail all the things involved in bringing the many aspects of the Flower and Garden Festival together, from the creation and placement of the topiaries to the building of the playgrounds and butterfly garden. It is a great little film.
