The Realists Take

Spring has sprung folks, and where better to celebrate it than in Disney World’s EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival. Sure, we all love Mickey and Minnie, but get ready to be overshadowed by Groot who’s trying out his green (or should we say ‘woody’?) fingers, and Coco’s charming Miguel and Dante making their debut in topiary form. While your allergic friends groan about pollen, you’ll be frolicking among the 25 garden destinations filled with botanical wonders, and edible delights. And for those of you who can barely keep a cactus alive, this is your chance to humble brag about your ‘horticultural experience’ at Disney. Because, let’s face it, where else would you get the chance to say you’ve been educated by a plant. Cheesy photo ops at every corner, food right out of Disney flicks, and Garden Rocks that are more likely your ‘jam’ than your grandmother’s collection of precious stones, Disney’s got you covered. So, be there or be a wilted daisy!
