It’s hard to believe the 27th annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival begins March 4th and runs through June 1st for 90 days of flowers, food, and fun. This was the first Epcot festival dating back to 1994 when it was a 38 day celebration of Disney’s gardens and topiaries.
The Epcot horticulture team is planning to introduce a brand-new Remy topiary – the centerpiece of a new Ratatouille Garden at the France pavilion! This delicious new garden will be planted with veggies used in a ratatouille recipe. I love Remy, and I can’t wait to check it out! Guests also will find favorite returning character topiaries including Snow White, Elsa and Anna, Belle and Beast, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Miss Piggy and Kermit.
As you explore the Outdoor Kitchens, you’ll discover raised-bed or in-ground gardens of herbs and produce and discover how to grow your own healthy foods. Bedding plants in every color of the rainbow will decorate the landscape around Future World and World Showcase, and dozens of Disney-crafted “flower towers” will offer colorful backdrops for spring selfies. Festive mini-gardens will be set afloat like floral pontoons on the Future World east and west lakes.
Returning favorite Outdoor Kitchens include Flavor Full Kitchen, sponsored by AdventHealth; Trowel & Trellis, where all of the dishes are plant-based creations; and the favorite Orange Bird Sipper! New for this year, a Spike the Bee Sipper (inspired by the Disney character who first appeared in Disney short films in the 1940s) will also be available at The Honey Bee-stro and will contain the popular Honey-Peach Freeze. Both specialty sippers will be available while supplies last.
Your children will love burning off energy with at the festival’s Play Garden and Family Play Zone. Guests of all ages will flock to The Goodness Garden Butterfly House presented by GoGoSqueeZ. The popular “How To” garden also returns with clever tips for home gardeners.
