Topiary Characters at Epcot

There's still time (until May 20th, 2012) to check out the flowers and character topiaries at Epcot. You'll see Snow White, the seven dwarfs, Mickey and more. I was in Epcot at this time and it wasn't overwhelming, but the flowers in the pond were arranged beautifully and the topiaries were really well done. So if you want to check out Epcot anyway, keep an eye out for the arrangements. The question is why just until May 20th? Will they just let them grow up and out or will they be reshaped? Look out for that weedwacker Minnie!

Or maybe (more likely) May 20th is when the flower presentations, displays, and concerts stop.
