Episode 3 – Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is the topic of discussion for Episode 3 of the My Mickey Podcast.  

Karen, Danny, Stacey, and Jeff all reflect on their favorite aspects of this year’s festival.

Of course, we start with the amazing food offerings in the Outdoor Kitchens.  From the honey cheesecake and the berry buckle to the violet lemonade and La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush, we give you our favorites (and tips on how to avoid a brain freeze).

Karen and Jeff share their experience on the Royal Tea Garden Tour in the United Kingdom Pavilion of Epcot.  A 90-minute tour of the tea gardens, so much information is shared about the different blends of tea, how different ingredients are grown, and the best way to prepare the various types of tea.  We even got to meet a 10th generation member of the Twinings family, Stephen H B Twining.

Garden Rocks is the concert series included with your park admission.  Danny and Stacey talk about their recent experience with the Garden Rocks Dining Package and seeing Starship in the America Pavilion.

In this episode, we are introduced to Barrels by the Bay, a unique non-profit that converts Coca-Cola syrup barrels into rain barrels, but also educates the community on water conservation issues.  Join them in painting barrels behind Mouse Gears all through the festival.

And of course, what podcast wouldn’t be complete without a discussion of merchandise, especially ears and Dooney bags.

Leave your comments below.  We’d love to know what you love about this year’s festival.
