Disney festival planners will boost floral fun and plant power to a whole new level during the 20th Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival presented by HGTV March 6-May 19, 2013 at Walt Disney World Resort.  Whimsical Disney topiary spectacles and sweeping garden landscapes set the colorful scene this year for new festival additions including: Garden Marketplace culinary creations ranging from smokehouse barbecue and shrimp with grits and Zellwood corn to sweet “frushi” made with fresh fruits and coconut rice, and Garden Marketplace refreshing libations with a kick like Hot Sun Tomato Wine from Florida Orange Groves Winery and Dole Whip with Spiced Rum, as well as non-alcoholic drinks like Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade and Wild Berry Slush.  Eric Darden, Epcot Festival Horticulture Manager and Jens Dahlmann, Epcot Executive Chef, talk about the collaboration between plant and food experts and the multisensory experience in store for guests.
