BGW wins the award because of the combination of the themed hamlets and landscaping. SeaWorld has nice landscaping but really lacks in themed areas that stand out. And in my opinion, SeaWorld Orlando isn't even the best in Central Florida as BGT, EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom have far superior landscaping and thematic elements.

The landscaping does seem to be going downhill. Hopefully this is just a fluke.

I'd argue that LEGOLAND Florida is a contender, especially with the revitalized Cypress Gardens.

Maybe...I bet they are some happy deers. There are Pansies everywhere.

Aside from that this looked nice (ignore the pansies in the foreground)....

Those flower pots from the last picture are there because they can't plant anything in that area due to the concrete slab from the Howl-O-Scream bungee jump scare that was there.

As far as the Pansies in Italy when we were in the park on the 13th this month there was A small but steady stream of people sending there kids up into the bare field to get there picture take standing in nothing but grass at least where the Wagon used to sit.  Multiply by god only knows how many and you get dead trampled flowers. Can't explain the others not holding up so well.

Been coming to Busch Gardens since forever. Even got to walk Nessie's Lift Hill the hard way. Got evacuated from 3/4 the way up. Unnerving to say the least.

Some Octoberfest changes noted HERE.

Along with this. Not the the best "before", but it was in comparison to last year.
       

Some of these are between this year and last. Others are older reminders.

"But it opens up the path way"...yadda, yadda.
       

WTF? Most beautiful park? Hopefully more planting is on the way.
           

Even Banbury was not spared.
   

Also hoping for improvement over the season.
Before -
           
Now -
       

Wisdom from a mug ~ In the time before airlines & electricity, the countries of medieval Europe developed distinctive styles architecture suited to their regions. Traditions & culture grew separately as well. The diverse heritage of many Americans is celebrated here in Busch Gardens at Williamsburg.

The weather has been a true nightmare this year—I imagine landscaping will improve a lot in the coming weeks. Already started to see a few new blooms on my last visit.

I feel that the winters are going to become worse and worse as mother nature fights back against global warming and as the world proceeds with going green.

Pansies were hit or miss this year and their growing season was completely truncated by the long winter, quick warm up, then sudden cliff dive back into winter. This winter was weird - come to North Florida - the palms look like they were hit by a nuclear attack.

Stop trying to make consensus happen. It's not gonna happen.
