New Merchandise for the 2016 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival


Spring is just around the corner, and it’s my absolute favorite time at Epcot! The 23rd annual International Flower & Garden Festival has arrived. Aromatic displays, intricate character topiaries, and sinfully delicious food kiosks make this a wonderful way to enjoy the park. Looking for a way to bring a bit of the magic home? New merchandise has hit the shelves and is the perfect way to honor your trip to this garden lovers’ paradise.

I have to admit that this year’s collection of festival merchandise is my absolute favorite. There are a variety of items and not the standard from past events. This includes flower pots, hats, decoratives, and more. One of the biggest surprises is how dominant a unique, but sometimes forgotten, character is in many of the items; Figment, that jovial purple dragon from Journey into Imagination, smiles proudly on shirts, coffee mugs, and even a limited edition MagicBand of only 2500.

One of my favorite items this year is relatively simple but fun all the same: a purple flower pot featuring Figment and the festival logo. This is such a great souvenir to bring back home to friends and family. I can easily see myself purchasing a few of these, planting some brightly colored zinnias or gerberas, and displaying them on my garden window.

Another improvement in merchandise this year is a larger collection of apparel for men. The “Guys Garden Collection” features a charcoal festival design on shirts and hats. Men’s clothing sporting Mickey Mouse in his landscaping attire is also available.

Women looking for other clothing options will enjoy this Minnie tee and a matching mug in the shape of a flower pot. How darling are these?

You’ll also want to check out the “Ladies’ Topiary Collection” which includes apparel, canvas bags, drinkware, pin sets, and more. If you’re a Dooney & Bourke fan, be on the lookout for a new print which features Figment for the first time ever on a design.

Duffy’s friend from across the globe, Miss ShellieMay, also makes an appearance in bright floral overalls and a sun hat. The brim is stitched with the year and logo of the festival. This would be a sweet friend for children to share their time with as they learn about gardening.

All in all, I am very pleased with the selection of merchandise found at this year’s Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. What item is your favorite? Happy shopping!
