The 2014 Flower & Garden Festivalruns from March 5, 2014 - May 18, 2014
Upon entering Epcot, you notice topiary displays right near the entrance. Here's Daisy, Donald and Goofy.

Some ladies were driving around in this decorated golf cart. Entertainment additions are almost always good.

Here you can see the Fast Pass +  mess in the middle of Future World. There are many other stations to get your FP+, so this is not the spot you want to hit.
