Flower & Garden Festival Overview

Flower & Garden Festival

One of the most welcome signs of spring is Epcot's annual International Flower & Garden Festival. While the grounds at Epcot are always beautiful, the Flower and Garden Festival takes them to the next level and everywhere you look is bursting with colorful blooms. 2019 marks the 26th Annual Flower and Garden Festival that will take place from March 6-June 3 – 90 days!

This year, the Garden Rocks Concerts will take place every night – that's 270 concerts – in the America Gardens Theatre and dining packages are now available to book.

The Honey Bee-stro Outdoor Kitchen debuted in 2018 and several new outdoor kitchens will debut in 2019. AdventHealth will host a kitchen along with a nearby playground where the whole family can learn fun and interactive ways to stay healthy. 

Flower & Garden Festival

A plethora of Disney character topiaries, including classic-character favorites Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and many others, play a starring role each year in the festival. Belle is typically featured in the France pavilion along with Beast, you'll find Snow White in Germany with the Seven Dwarfs, and Anna and Elsa can be found in the Norway pavilion. Woody and Buzz Lightyear will welcome Bo Peep and her sheep to their Toy Story topiary near the Family Play Zone in Future World East.



The 2018 festival brought a brand-new Future World interactive play garden and a revved-up Road to Florida 500 garden with new games and play challenges. The new interactive area in Future World featured a play maze, a sensory garden, an activity zone, and a covered seating area. The redesigned Cars-themed garden based on the Disney•Pixar sequel, Cars 3, added more fun activities like highway bingo for families. We'll let you know what 2019's theme is as soon as it's announced!


 

The Figment topiary garden between Future World and World Showcase typically offers the perfect selfie backdrop and family photo opportunity.

Perennial Flower and Garden favorites such as the English Tea Garden, the Butterfly Haven, and special kids' activities can be seen at the festival as well. Illuminated topiary and play gardens light up at night for a different festival experience.

Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration family scavenger hunt activity will be more fun than ever this year with new locations to discover along the garden pollination trail. Guests can also commemorate their scavenger hunt experience with select merchandise offerings featuring everyone’s favorite honey bee, Spike.

Explore the Festival and keep an eye out for Spike as he pollinates Epcot’s gardens. In each garden, you’ll need to search for the plant Spike has pollinated, identifiable by Spike himself and a Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration plant stake. Once you find him, add the corresponding sticker to your map.

Once your map is full of stickers, your journey is complete and you can return your map for a springtime surprise.

Maps and stickers for Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration were available for sale at Port of Entry for $5.99 plus tax and we'll let you know if the price changes for 2019.

Another guest favorite returning to the festival April 5-21, 2019 (while supplies last) is the Eggstravaganza Scavenger Hunt, where guests can search for Disney character-themed eggs around World Showcase.

Dozens of Disney-crafted “flower towers” and beds of multi-colored blooms will transform the park’s landscape. At least 70,000 bedding plants will surround the Future World east and west lakes alone; on the water, 220 mini-gardens will be set afloat.

Don't forget to pick up one of the special gift cards that are created for this event too! They're tiny and are attached to a bracelet made out of what looks like an old telephone cord. Take a look at one of the 2018 editions below - there are several flowers in different colors to choose from!



In the past, Annual Passholders visiting the Festival could pick up one of two adorable Spring-themed Passholder magnets depending on the date they attended. Below is a look at the magnets that were available in 2018 - we'll display 2019's magnets when they are revealed.

Festival Center
The Festival Center was not used at all for 2018. The merchandise found in the Festival Center in previous years was located in other locations around Epcot, including the Port of Entry. This move allowed last year's guests to have more convenient access to the things once offered at the Festival Center which was open only three days per week at previous Festivals. We'll update here when we know whether or not the Festival Center will be utilized in 2019.
