One of the things I love most about the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, is that there are many interactive areas. There are places for kids to play, gardening workshops and beautiful topiaries to enjoy. One of my favorite places to spend some time observing nature in EPCOT in the Spring is the Goodness Garden Butterfly House.
Goodness Garden Butterfly House at Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival
You can find The Goodness Garden Butterfly House is located in Future World West. You won’t be able to miss it! It is a HUGE tent-like structure with a metal chain doorway (that helps keep the flow of people moving but keeps the butterflies from flying away.
Here, you can learn about the journey a monarch butterfly makes across the continent after coming out of it’s chrysalis. The exhibit does a wonderful job teaching about the butterfly lifecycle and about their migration.
It is a great place to be up close with many different types of butterflies in a safe enviornment for the butterflies.
The key to interacting with these creatures is to remain still. If you do, you may find one landing on or near you!
The Butterfly House at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival will also give you tips on which plants and flowers attract butterflies and where best to plant those butterfly attracting flora.
Tips for Attracting Butterflies to your Garden
- Choose native plants with nectar-producing flowers like butterfly bush and canna lily.
- Plant flowers & bushes that have different colors. Different butterfly species are attracted to different colors.
- Add plants like milkweed for Monach butterflies to lay their eggs.
- Add a birdbath to serve as a water source for the butterflies.
