Looking Forward to the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

February 8, 2015, 8:28 PM · We are less than a month away from the start of the annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, which runs from March 4 through May 17 this year at Walt Disney World.

Flower and Garden Festival

This year's theme is "Fun Fresh," and Epcot will be adding eight new garden areas and a new outdoor kitchen for this year's festival. However, the Festival Center will open only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays during the event this year. And there won't be a separate festival map — festival information will be included in an expanded Epcot guidemap and the show guide, according to our sources.

This year's concert series will be called the "Rock Garden" concert series rather than the old "Flower Power" series (sorry, baby boomers?). Here is the schedule:

March 6-8: Gin Blossoms
March 13-15: Pablo Cruise
March 20-22: En Vogue
April 3-5: Starship
April 10-12: The Orchestra
April 17-22: John Secada
April 24-26: The Guess Who
May 1-3: Taylor Dane
May 8-10: Little River Band
May 15-17: Herman's Hermits

The topiaries this year will include Chip and Dale, and — hold on, I know this will shock many of you — Anna and Elsa.

The Flower and Garden Festival is included as part of park admission, though food booths are extra charges.

Remember when Epcot drew crowds because of the culture and attractions?
