2015 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival - World Showcase

2015 marked the fourth year in a row that I've visited Epcot during its annual International Flower & Garden Festival. Much of the Festival remained the same as in previous years, with topiary and other floral displays decorating the park and Outdoor Kitchens bringing a taste of spring to the park.

This year, I've broken my photos up into two separate posts, so this one will feature photographs from World Showcase. I will include Future World photos in a separate post. I also detailed my food selections in yet another Flower & Garden post.

New to this year's Festival were Anna and Elsa from Frozen, greeting guests and they entered World Showcase Plaza.

Something was missing from the Norway pavilion, as this spot had been troll country in previous years.

A topiary celebrating the Year of the Sheep appears alongside the China pavilion.

Lion King topiaries decorate the African Outpost area of World Showcase.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, again among the more attractive topiary, were found outside the German pavilion.

The German garden railway also celebrates the Flower & Garden Festival.

Lady and the Tramp are never far from an Italian restaurant, so they naturally appear in the Italy pavilion.

Ms. Piggy appears between the Italy and United States pavilions, representing the entire Muppets franchise.

Woody was alone outside The Smokehouse in the United States pavilion, with no other Toy Story characters present this year.

Characters from Beauty and the Beast are present throughout the France pavilion.

Cinderella and Prince Charming also moved in the France pavilion, from their previous spot in between France and the U.K., where other pairs of princes and princesses were left out of this year's Festival.

Even thought the Outdoor Kitchen has been removed from the U.K. pavilion, the area is still well decorated during the Festival. Pooh appears this year without and "friends", there is an English Tea Garden, and Captain Hook appears with his two nemeses.

Bambi and friends returned to the Canada pavilion this year.
