Although this is the start of Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is still going strong with a lot of activities lined up for this weekend. If suiting up for a lightsaber fight is not your idea of fun, than head on over to Epcot.


The show may be winding down, but it is far from over when you look at what is planned for this weekend and next.

Robert Bowden will be on hand over the weekend at 12:00 pm and 3:00 pm as part of the Great American Gardeners series at Garden Town Discoveries. Mr. Bowden is the Director of the City of Orlando’s wonderful Harry P. Leu Gardens.

Wrapping it up

This has been a great festival and it has one more week to go. With all that is happening this weekend all over the Walt Disney World Resort, there is almost too much to choose from. Pace yourself and you might be able to make it to everything. i know that I am certainly going to try.
