Really, we are. HGTV is sponsoring the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival March 2 through May 15. Anyone going around that time? Come see us. We’ll be at Epcot in person every Friday through Sunday*. Of particular interest to Design Happens friends, Brian Patrick Flynn will be there March 25-27 demonstrating how to build a mobile garden. Swing by and offer to treat him to a Dole Whip! Over the course of the event we’ll also have Vern Yip, Genevieve Gorder, Patti Moreno, John Gidding and more.

Any reporting you’d like to see from the Festival? Want to know how they make those topiaries?
Dragon Topiary at the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

We can show you how to make a simple topiary, but we’ll leave the dragons to the Imagineers.

*Correction: I originally wrote Thursday-Monday. Those are the talent travel dates. They’ll be appearing Friday-Sunday.

    haha I was there! We were just eating in the French restaurant, and I saw Vern Yip! He was one table over! It was awesome.

    We were there April 28th-May 3rd and admired the gardens mostly at night because it was so hot out during the day. I wish I would've known they were doing My Yard Goes Disney. that'd be a dream come true for us we love Disney and the gardens there. Our yard looks more like the twilight tower of terror

    Why doesn't David Bromstad ever appear at this? Doesn't he live in Miami? I've seen Vern and Genevieve and hope to see John Gooding this year. We love the Flower and Garden show at Epcot

  5. Tina says:
