For many adventurers, it’s hard to imagine a trip to sunny Orlando, Florida without quality time spent at Disney World included. As magical as it is thrilling and fun, Disney World in Orlando has a way of calling travelers back time and again with good reason! Year-round Disney World is known for hosting unforgettable events, gatherings, and festivals that infuse whimsical experiences into an already unbelievable theme park visit. While many of these festivals happen around the holidays, those who are lucky enough to enjoy their time in Florida in the spring will find they can take part in the beloved EPCOT International Flower Festival. In 2024, this highly anticipated event will be held from February 28 through May 27 and is sure to bring in droves of excited locals and visitors alike! It’s a celebration of seasonal colors, fun, and flavor that’s truly one-of-a-kind.
