Now through the festival’s end date on June 3, guests and locals can see the resort’s very own Disney character topiaries designed by the Walt Disney World Resort horticulture team. Guests can see topiaries of Mickey and Minnie on the Resort’s main palm pathway, outside of Ravello restaurant.
“We are very excited to feature these wonderful topiaries on display in connection with the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival,” said Thomas Steinhauer, general manager and regional vice president of Four Seasons Resort Orlando. “They certainly bring a smile to the faces of our guests, who love having their photos taken beside them!”
Resort guests who stay on property and share a photo of the topiaries on social media, tagging @FSOrlando and using the hashtag #FreshEPCOT, will receive a complimentary in-room treat: a special flower-themed cupcake made by the resort’s pastry team.
In addition to the topiaries, visitors can experience hands-on flower arranging demonstrations with floral designers from Greenery Productions. The designers will lead the interactive class while participants enjoy light bites and beverages. Two different classes will be offered on two select dates:
“Roses & Rosé” – May 16, 2-4 p.m.
Guests can learn how to arrange different rose varieties while sipping on rosé wine and eating small bites. Spring crostini will be served in various flavors including spring pea hummus with whipped ricotta and rose jam; brie cheese with grilled asparagus and crispy pancetta; and a rose pesto with sunflower seed, burrata and olive oil. Chilled oysters, rosé mignonette and gruyere cheese puff pastry will also be served.
“Tulips & Tapas” – May 30, 2-4 p.m.
Guests can learn to arrange spring tulips as they take in a tapas menu and a glass of red wine from Capa. Tapas served will include the pan con tomato, Capa datiles, (Medjool dates with Marcona almond), patatas bravas, pulpo (grilled octopus), and more.
Each class is $75 per person, and includes a glass vase for their floral creation. The classes will be held inside the Ravello Demonstration Kitchen on level one of the Four Seasons Resort Orlando. Reservations are required and space is limited, so be sure to call (407) 313-6161 to reserve your spot.
The resort will also be offering fruit-infused and floral-garnished cocktails at The Lobby Bar, as well as nature-incorporated treatments at The Spa at Four Seasons.
