The Realists Take

Hold onto your Mickey hats, folks! EPCOT’s going green in a big way! They’ve transformed the park into a plant lover’s paradise – we’re talking jaw-dropping topiaries, more gardens than you can shake a stick at and mind-boggling floral exhibits that’d make any botany guru blush. Even Groot showed up to this plant party, branching out with his… branches.

But let’s not forget about the real star: food! You get to eat your way across the park. No, really. There’s so much grub to gobble up, you’ll feel like you bit off more than you can chew. But don’t worry, for those with picky palates, there are cuban-style pulled pork sandwiches, key lime wine slushies, and chocolate whisky cake on offer. If you’re feeling ambitious, take a stroll along the Garden Graze – a food lover’s marathon.

Disney has even thrown in some fun activities for the little ones. Now youngsters can hunt for treasure, get up close and personal with butterflies, and expend some energy at ‘Get Out ‘N’ Play Garden’. We all know too well the sibling conflicts that can arise in enclosed spaces like the ‘It’s a Small World’ ride.

In short, Disney’s offering a cornucopia of fun. Warning: plant puns are included in price of admission.
