Leaving Future World behind and heading toward World Showcase, we find the another new display Ranger Mickey and Friends presented by National Parks Foundation featuring Chip & Dale and, of course, Ranger Mickey. Now as they say “a picture is worth a thousand words” so this 25,000-word essay will begin as we walk into World Showcase and walk clockwise ending in Canada. Two of the more fun, and newer, areas have to be the Urban Farm Eats outdoor kitchen and display with a full Aquaponics dining area display and the Music Garden Melodies play area located on the path to the Imagination Pavilion. Before we wrap up this whirlwind tour of the 2016 Flower & Garden Festival, I have to point out that as a lot of WDW Passholders are quick to mention that Disneyland Resort does a lot for their AP holders but I feel the steps Walt Disney World has started to take are on the right path. From posters at the last Star Wars Weekends, port wine glasses at the 20th Annual Food and Wine festival and now special edition prints for this event are all great things that are free to Passholders just for visiting. Of course, besides everything we just went over, there is also the Festival Center, open Fridays – Sundays during the run of the event, with presentations and hands-on seminars all complimentary, sitting is limited. There are also special weekends events and who could forget the Garden Rocks concert series, if you miss out on any of the fun you will only have yourself to blame!
