Pixar Weekend at EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival

Does the idea of Pixar films and flowers coming together sound dreamy to you? Well then you’ll be happy to lose yourself in the world of Pixar films at Pixar’s 25th Anniversary Weekend coming May 13-15 as part of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World Resort. Celebrate Pixar with exciting activities, special character appearances and a speaker series with Pixar insiders.

Disney has just opened up free seat reservations for the Saturday and Sunday talks featuring experts from Pixar. So if you’re planning on attending, drop what you’re doing now and register over at http://www.pixarweekend.com.

Presenting Pixar Speaker Sessions

Get the inside scoop from Oscar®-nominated Pixar producer Jonas Rivera, Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino and Cars Franchise Guardian Jay Ward at the speaker series held inside World Showplace Saturday and Sunday.

Daily Speaker Session Schedule: May 14 – 15, 2011

Now, go get your seats if you haven’t already.

Thoughts on why this isn’t at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and more details about the weekend below the jump:

With a whole section of the park at Disney’s Hollywood Studios themed to Pixar Studios, one wonders why this event isn’t being held at DHS. Yes, it’s a nice way to end the Flower and Garden Festival, and yes, Epcot has a number of venues that are perfect for events like this. So, let’s see how it goes this year, and hope that it becomes an annual event.

Aside: another event I’d like to see is an ABC/Disney Channels all-star lineup weekend.
