Along with a series of Disney Parks holiday stories this week, we also looked ahead to 2020 and shared new information about next year’s exciting Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
The annual festival is revving up to be a show stopper, with a Garden Rocks Concert Series talent lineup like never before. And as always, there will be a kaleidoscope of colorful blooms, topiaries and gardens designed to inspire wonder as well as fabulous food at the event’s 17 Outdoor Kitchens and other food-and-beverage stops.
The festival, including Garden Rocks concerts and all gardens and exhibits, is included in regular Epcot admission. Visit FreshEpcot.com or call (407) W-DISNEY for more information.

Also this week, we celebrated the grand opening of Disney’s Riviera Resort at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you missed it, you can still see a #DisneyParksLIVE stream replay of the dedication moment.
