It’s not quite time for that other Festival that foodies mark on their calendars . While we wait (and wait) for October, there are some other fun exhibits to explore in Walt Disney World!
For the 18th year, Epcot will be hosting the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival from March 2-May 15, 2011, and you can find the festival guide here. Foodies will find some delightful exhibits, which we’ve detailed below.

Strolling through the Flower and Garden Festival is one of my favorite pastimes in Epcot. I highly recommend beginning your walk through World Showcase at 11:00 a.m. when you’ll be able to snap photos without all those strangers in your frame. The crowds will arrive later in the day.
