Every Spring, Epcot brings your senses to the next level with the International Flower and Garden Show.  Beyond just the beautiful flowers, topiaries, and gardens, visitors have the opportunity to taste exotic dishes, hear some rocking concerts, and learn from unique presentations how to bring Epcot’s  spring garden ideas home. We were really surprised to see so much to do at the show!
