The 18th Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is revving up for a dash to the finish line with Pixar’s 25th Anniversary Weekend celebrating “Cars 2.” The May 13-15, 2011 event at Walt Disney World Resort will bring this year’s flowerfest to a checkered-flag conclusion with:
- Pixar character meet-and-greets throughout Future World and World Showcase.
- “Race Around World Showcase” kids activity that, when completed, earns a collectible button.
- Informal discussions (May 14 and May 15) featuring Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino, Oscar®-nominated Pixar producer Jonas Rivera, and “Cars” franchise guardian Jay Ward. Ward is currently involved with Disney-Pixar’s “Cars 2,” scheduled for release on June 24, 2011.
Entertainment is subject to change without notice. The special experiences are included with Epcot admission. More information about the special weekend is available at pixarweekend.com.
