Animating Frozen’s Elsa probably took its share of blood, sweat and tears, but imagine creating the chilly princess out of a shrub. Starting today, you can see Elsa, Anna and other timeless Disney characters converted by horticulturists into foliage form at Epcot’s annual International Flower and Garden Festival. Not interested in creative hedges? Check out one of the festival’s unique gardens, which include a bonsai collection, floating mini gardens and healing plants. Epcot also plans to host 13 outdoor kitchens, ranging from Parisian cuisine to modern Chinese favorites, and gardening experts who can give you tips on how to improve your succulent collection. Epcot is, lest we forget, still part of Walt Disney World, so tickets aren’t cheap, but for the garden connoisseur, it’s well worth it.
