|Epcot's Flower & Garden Festival|
In May of 1996, Pierre and I traveled to Walt Disney World for our friends' wedding. It was my very first experience seeing Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival. I had no idea what it was at the time, but I know that what I saw literally took my breath away. Every corner I turned, there was something new to see - Pumba and Timon hidden in the trees, Beauty and the Beast in full bloom, with Chip near by blowing bubbles and so many more character topiaries. I will admit I had never seen anything like this in my life.

Another popular offering of the Flower and Garden Festival are the Flower Power concerts, which offer a variety of artists performing each weekend from Chubby Checker to Paul Revere to Herman's Hermits and more. They are a great addition to the festival at the American Gardens Theater. Every trip, Pierre and I definitely make time to have a night out in Epcot (courtesy of my parents - our free babysitters!). We always enjoy a stop to take in whichever artist may be performing. It is really such a relaxing way to enjoy a night out in Epcot. Of course, it is also great that you are in such close proximity to plenty of places to get a drink and snack to enjoy while watching the performers!
