Closed most of the year, the Wonders of Life pavilion once again plays host to the 2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Center. Let’s take a photo tour around the space.
First off, the Festival Center is only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10am to 5pm. How did we get in on a Wednesday, you ask? That’s proprietary. Actually, the Festival Center is open weekdays this week only and then returns to a normal schedule starting Monday and keeping to the “weekends only” schedule throughout the remainder of the festival.
Walking in to the right, we find the Intermissions Cafe. It serves as a nice little spot to grab a bite to eat if you spend a bit of time in the Festival Center, which is possible.
Across from the cafe is the Spotlight Stage. Talks will occur in this space through the day. Make sure to check your times guide.
Past the stage, we find the merchandise area.
From there, we find the stage where various presentations and demonstrations will take place. Check the times guide when you arrive to see if one might interest you.
Flower and Garden branding is joined by photos on the perimeter walls. Note the FuelRod station in the middle-left of the photo.
Horticulture Heritage is located at the opposite end of the entrance to the pavilion and it showcases Disney’s history with horticulture.
The Garden Theater shows the “Making of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival”.
The Greenhouse Stage allows guests to partake in their very own hands on activities. The activities will change throughout the festival and you do have to show up early and queue. Cast Members are in the area to assist.
Making a full lap, we find ourselves near the entrance again where there are a variety of small displays and literature on gardening.
There is an additional Festival Stage before we make our exit. This was showing horticulturists preparing the topiaries.
We hope you enjoyed our tour around the 2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Center and that you drop by if you find yourself at Epcot during the festival.
