Epcot’s Inside Out Emotion Garden

I love the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.  I’ve posted about the topiaries, the Urban Farm Eats Garden and the Monsters U Playground already.  Today I want to share a really interesting feature called the Disney Pixar Inside Out Emotion Garden.   This mini-garden feature plants that “inspire your emotions”.   The Angry Plants section are mostly red and orange.   The sign reads: Anger’s a red emotion; Quite likely to explode; His favorite plants are … Continue reading
