Garden Festival, Spring 2019

In the background, the Festival Blooms display at Epcot is spread across a strip of grass above a lagoon. The display is pink, magenta, red, orange and yellow, and is made in the shapes of stars, suns, and the Mickey Mouse logo. In the foreground, green hosta leaves edged with contrasting white are mixed in with dianthus, little hot pink flowers with fringed petals clustered at the ends of long, thin stalks.

UPDATE JANUARY 28, 2019: LIMITED SPACES STILL AVAILABLE…

Join Keeler Gardens for a week at one of the most extraordinary flower and garden festivals in the country: the Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival at Walt Disney World! This isn’t your typical flower and garden show. It offers an unimaginable collection of gardens, themes, and interactions, and we’re incredibly excited to be able to offer this opportunity to our community.

Keeler Gardens has been attending the Epcot® International Flower and Garden Festival for many years, gathering knowledge that we will now be sharing with you over one very special week. Let us guide you through the many gardens on display, allowing us to educate you on all the magical details that will truly connect you with the plants and people of this enchanting special event.

In the center of the picture, a white peacock butterfly with spread wings rests on a cluster of spiky, light orange and dark red milkweed flowers. The butterfly is a pale brown with three dark brown spots on each wing and several rows of rusty orange and dark brown stripes around the wavy edges of the wings.

As your hosts, Keeler Gardens will be at your disposal for guided tours during a portion of each day, with your late afternoons and evenings free to take advantage of all Disney has to offer. Every stop will impart an appreciation for the many different displays, cultures, and hidden gems throughout the festival and beyond. We will immerse you in butterflies, visit each country in the World Showcase, and explore Disney’s environmental commitment. We will also offer suggestions and tips for maximizing your enjoyment of Walt Disney World.

Stay in an apartment-like unit with a full kitchen, bath, king bed, and laundry facilities, just a 10-minute ride from Walt Disney Resort property. Along with the comfort of these unique rooms, you will have the luxury of a pool, hot tub, and sun deck.

In one section of the Terracotta Garden at the 2016 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, Italian terracotta pots overflow with blooms. In the front pot is white sweet alyssum and light pink New Guinea impatiens. In the pots just behind are tall blue and purple stalks of blooming salvia mixed with bright red dianthus, and far in the back hot pink New Guinea impatiens and two-tone pink geraniums. Along the bottom of the picture are more stalks of salvia, and deep blue petunias.
