“EPCOT” Energy Endures

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” (Audrey Hepburn)

For over 35 years, Ruth and I have embraced EPCOT as our favorite Disney Park. Strolling freely through its imaginatively themed pavilions of “Future World”, we’ve often found creative ideas to use as classroom teachers. In addition, by circling the diverse parade of nations at World Showcase, new places to explore in travel have vividly piqued our interest. This year, the “International Flower and Garden Festival” inspired an early March visit to EPCOT on day three of our U.S. road trip. I thus present below my favorite photographic images from this most recent tour.

As we entered EPCOT a springtime explosion of floral blooms and smells greeted each new visitor.





A colorful patchwork of flowers lined the circular lake to capture Monet-like impressions along the surrounding waters.




Topiary gardens throughout the park revealed detailed images of popular Disney character.



At the canopied Butterfly House, these beautifully winged insects blended in nicely with the surrounding foliage.


To conclude our visit, leader singer, Jon Anderson of “Yes” performed a free concert of greatest hits from this famed English band at the Concert Pavilion.




I accomplished a rewarding career as a teacher and professor for 28 years.No more daily lesson plans now frees my curious mind to experience life on my own terms now.
