Along with the many plants and topiaries seen at the festival, Disney has also added a spectacular line-up of entertainment that includes HGTV personalities and music. Of course, all of this is in addition to the Garden Marketplaces debuting this year which offer tasty treats similar to those of the Food & Wine Festival held in the fall at Epcot.

But, back to the entertainment. HGTV personalities scheduled to offer presentations include Chris Lambton of HGTV’s Going Yard  (March 8 – 10); Chris Grundy of DIY Network’s Cool Tools  (March 15 – 17);  Egypt Sherrod of HGTV’s Property Virgins  (March 22 – 24); Brandon Johnson of HGTV’s My Yard Goes Disney  (March 29 – 31); Meg Caswell of HGTV’s Meg’s Great Rooms  (April 5 – 7); Jason Cameron of DIY Network’s Desperate Landscapes and Man Caves  (April 12 – 14); Sara Peterson of Editor-in-Chief, HGTV Magazine  (April 19 – 21); Carter Oosterhouse of HGTV’s Million Dollar Rooms  (April 26 – 28);  Casey Noble of HGTV’s Design on a Dime  (May 3 – 5); Dan Faires of HGTV’s Design Star and HGTV.com’s DanMade  (May 10 – 12) and David Bromstad of HGTV Design Star, Color Splash, Design Star All-Stars  (May 17 – 19).
