Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

 

MARCH 6 - JUNE 3, 2019



2019 Flower & Garden Information

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!

Flower & Garden Festival

In 2019, 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.

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 Dopey, 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 2019 Family Play Zone will be located by the walkay near Test Track. Guests can stop by and have some interactive fun with their kids at the new Toy Story 4-themed play area.

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 Mouse Gear, Pin Traders, Festival Shop carts, and Camera Center under Spaceship Earth for $6.99 plus tax.



Spike even has some of his very own merchandise 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 the 2019 editions below!



Walt Disney World Annual Passholders visiting the Festival can pick up one of two adorable Spring-themed Passholder magnets depending on the date they attend. Below is a look at the 2019 magnets - the Pluto magnet will be available March 6 – April 10 and Daisy will be available April 11 – June 3 (both will be available while supplies last). To pick yours up, stop into Mouse Gear or Port of Entry and show your valid annual pass card and photo ID.
