Topiaries, Food Reviews, Merchandise & Tasty Food

With the one year anniversary of this website, it was time to get back down to Walt Disney World for some much-needed Florida sunshine, and a look at the offerings for guests to Epcot.

After two days of cold rainy weather, the opening day of the festival was clear skies and Florida sunshine. That said the first few days of March 2019 had some 35F (1.6C) days.

Topiaries

Festival Pins

Our haul of Flower & Garden pins. Super annoyed that I didn’t grab this year’s Figment pin. For Annual Passholders, there is a little extra Figment goodness in pin form.

Orange Bird Sipper Cup

You can enjoy a delicious Orange Cream Slushy in this Souvenir Orange Bird Sipper Cup (a Magic Kingdom character), at the Citrus Blossom booth during the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. The popularity of this item has been pretty intense. We were in Epcot for the opening day of the Festival.

Down from 10 per. person to just 2, personally we like it this way as we wouldn’t want to miss out because someone bought them all well we are waiting in the long line. We picked up one per. person.

We were all Twitter on this Epcot visit.

Epcot Coffee Break

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company has been a staple of Walt Disney World for some time. You will find them throughout the Disney Parks.

Starbucks has also started arriving at Walt Disney World in several locations including Main Street USA, at the Magic Kingdom.

Tasty Food at the Festival

Eating around the World Showcase during the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival took some preparation. Basically, we ate our lunch and dinner around the World Showcase, one small portion at a time.

Did we stop at Lotus House just across from China pavilion for lunch? We picked up some Szechuan Spicy Red-braised Beef Shank, Vegetable Spring Rolls, and a very smooth Jasmine Draft Beer. We broke down our serving dishes to one for easy travels as seen in the photo above.

How about some Chinese Cotton Candy at Lotus House for dessert! Not an “official” Flower & Garden offering but they are gaining popularity during the festival.

Mariachi Cobre: The Story of Coco

This new show at Mexico pavilion was almost cancelled due to traffic problems during its first performance. As luck would have Mariachi Cobre: The Story of Coco did happen after some adjustment to traffic control by Disney Security. We were in attendance for this exact performance and may have made it into the crowd shot. The pros over at Inside the Magic were front and centre. Check it out below.
