While Disney's Hollywood Studios has its fair share of gardens, it's undeniable that the lush landscaping at Disney's Animal Kingdom is anything less than spectacular. One of my favorite little quiet spots at Animal Kingdom is the paths around the Tree of Life. Many guests walk by these paths not even realizing they are there. Here you will find more greenery than you could even imagine. Along with the rest of the parks, Magic Kingdom park is full of flora - from the tropical plant life in Adventureland to the cactus plants in Frontierland. In true Disney fashion, in each area uses the plans to help execute the themes and ideas of their respective lands. Just before you enter the bridge to Tomorrowland from the Main Street hub, is the Plaza Rose Garden. This happens to be one of my favorite places to scoot out of the crowds, take some pictures and gaze at Cinderella Castle for a bit.
Even outside of the parks the landscaping skills are in full force. One of the areas where this is truly shown is at the resort hotels. Quaint gardens of delicate flowers add to the Victorian atmosphere of the Grand Floridian. Cacti and rock gardens bring in the true feeling of the southwest at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. Palm trees and hibiscus plants transport you to the islands at both Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney's Polynesian Resort. Speaking of the Polynesian Resort, one floral feature I (and many others) adore is the fountain and gardens inside of the Great Ceremonial House. Countless times that I've visited the Polynesian I have sat by the waterfall and just stared. It's quite possibly one of the most relaxing places in Walt Disney World, in my opinion.
