Photo Favorites from the 2011 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival featuring Toy Story 3, Cars 2, Winnie the Pooh

The 2011 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival has filled the theme park with beautiful color and sweet fragrances since it began on March 2. Continuing through May 15, the annual festival highlights popular Disney characters carefully recreated as topiaries, offering some of the year’s best photo opportunities.

Since the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is purely a visual event, I thought the best way to share its sights with you would be to simply offer a wordless photo stream of the favorite images I captured. It’s the closest experience to wandering uninterrupted through the park during this most beautiful time of year. While I snapped well over 100 photos of the festival, I have highlighted only my favorites below, followed by a slideshow of all of the pictures. Among my favorites are familiar characters like Lotso, Buzz, and Woody from Toy Story 3, Winnie the Pooh and Tigger from the upcoming Winnie the Pooh film, Lightning McQueen from Cars 2, pandas from China, and a few shots of Epcot’s glass-like water on a calm, clear day, surrounded by colorful flower beds.
