Disney Reviews Special Edition #5 - F&G Festival Topiaries Part 1

Getting off topic of food for a bit (but just a short bit), it's time for me to finally review the Flower and Garden Festival itself and it's going to take me a while. Unlike the Food and Wine Festival which basically just deals with food, the Flower and Garden Festival, in addition to food, has gardens and topiaries and flowers EVERYWHERE! I guess I should also mention that both festivals have seminars and events, but we never attend those (because they take up time and cost extra), so I can't review those.

For those that don't know what a topiary is, I link you to Wikipedia for the official description, but it's basically just a bush trimmed to look like something and, in Disney's case, Disney characters. Due to the large number of topiaries spread throughout both the Future World and World Showcase sections of Epcot, I'm going to have to split this post up into two parts. I'm probably also going to use more of my Sister's pictures than mine, simply because hers turned out better. Just to give you a scale reference, most of these are a lot bigger than "human-sized" (ranging about 6-7ft tall) and these aren't in order as they appeared in the park, just separated into their respective lands. Oh, and this is going to be a HUGE picture-filled post, so prepare yourself and, without further ado, let's get started with the Future World side first!
