    Any idea for the actual dates for 2019? We always seem to just miss it. I couldn't find the actual start date on the website. Still doing the google thing, but no luck yet.

    Thanks! That makes sense. We are trying to piggyback off of the Princess Half marathon weekend.

    I have never been either but the kids have a couple days off the week of the 11th. Grabbed a few nights at the villas at the Boardwalk and hope to combine with our first Wizarding World trio. Haven’t been to WDW since 2010 so I’m excited!

    Looking forward to it as part of the Star Wars race trip. I was there in 2017 and loved it.

    I have not seen anything official but if I had to guess, based on the last few years, I would guess it will start on Thursday Feb 28th. But that is just a guess.

    DW and I are gardeners so we appreciate all of the flowers and plants. We understand how much work it takes to install and how much care it takes keep things looking good. Of course we know they have an army of workers behind the scenes.

    It really transforms Epcot with all of the extra color. The displays around Italy, many large pots filled with flowers and greenery, are very nice. There is always a nice display of orchids added to the greenery next to Mexico. The butterfly garden is always fun. There are plants added along almost all of the paths. We make sure to wander around the whole park.

    We are not foodies but have noted that the number of food booths has been increasing the last few years.

    Definitely worth a visit!

    That is what we are hoping. We always miss it by one day, so this year we extended our stay.

    Wonderful! The last few years we have made a point to visit Epcot on F&G opening day. Perhaps we will see you there!

    That's awesome! We're going in February so we'll miss F&G (I like seeing all the topiaries), but it's amazing. You'll have an awesome time!

    I liked the topiary much more than I expected. (Not a gardener or particularly into plants.)

    I really liked the food stalls scattered around World Showcase as well.

    And while The Orchestra has nobody that I would really call a major member of ELO, they did a perfectly decent concert that kept me entertained while I waited for Illuminations. I was a huge ELO fan as a kid, to the point where I dragged my mother to see Xanadu; the concert was a pleasant trip down memory lane for me.

    Yes! The topiaries! I keep forgetting them. DW really likes the topiaries.

    And of course the Garden Rocks concerts. Last year we enjoyed one of the Starship sessions. We headed north just before the Blood Sweat and Tears appearance. We had seen them before and it was also a good session.

    I’m looking forward to the topiaries and some of the food booths. I am still undecided if I should change resorts. Lol

    Nothing beats staying at one of the Epcot resorts during one of the festivals. DW and I are partial to the Boardwalk but they are all nice. Being able to just stroll over to Epcot is very special.

    F&G dates for 2019 are March 6 - June 3. I'm going May 18-25 for my birthday and, also my first solo trip. Very excited! I'm thinking of doing the Garden Rocks Dining Package. Has anyone every done this? Was it worth it?
