    Hello i was wondering if there were going to be any special events/fireworks ect. During the time we will be visiting Disney!! We will be there March 17th-24th. Thank you for your help :)

    Hi Danielle,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will be taking place during your stay, and it's one of my favorite seasonal events at the Walt Disney World Resort. The Topiary displays of Disney characters are amazing and provide for some fantastic "foliage" photo opportunities. The Festival will feature Outdoor Kitchens situated around World Showcase that offer unique menu items highlighting the flavors of many of the World Showcase Pavilions. The menu listing for 2015 has not yet been released, but you can check out some of last year's offerings on There will also be a weekend concert series, where you can catch some of your favorite artists performing, special garden displays, and interactive play areas for the little ones. 

    As far as fireworks go, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth in Epcot is stunning, and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular in Magic Kingdom Park is an enchanting extravaganza! Also, don't miss Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. The enormous fire-breathing Maleficent float is spectacular! All of the other enchanting floats, music, and the appearance of many of Disney's beloved characters make this Parade a "Must-Do". FastPass+  for reserved viewing is available for all of these experiences. Please note that these are outdoor experiences and subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. Be sure to check the times guide at each Park for the performance schedule.

    Happy Planning,
