Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival: Part 3 31

The Flora, Fauna and…Fins (?) of The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

Seas of Life

The Seas with Nemo & Friends, Epcot

Welcome to Part 3, and the final post, in our series on The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 

In Parts 1 and 2 of our series, we focused on super-cute character topiary and vibrant gardens. We saw moss-covered likenesses of Buzz Lightyear, Simba, Belle, Beast and, the one and only, Mickey Mouse (just to name a few). Our eyes delighted in undulating rainbows of psychedelic floral color. But…wait…there’s more. Lots more!  Did you know that Epcot is also home to many living breathing creatures. These lucky insects, birds and animals get to enjoy the beauty of Epcot, year round! Now who wouldn’t want to make this place home?

Let’s Take a Look at Some of the Living Creatures We Spotted at The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 

*as well as inside “The Seas with Nemo & Friends”, an awesome educational ride that replaced their former (somewhat boring) aquarium.
