It’s time to watch Epcot transform into the prettiest theme park on property, at least until July 4th, 2022. The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is a festival that turns Epcot into a colorful garden wonderland. The one thing I love about this festival is that it has many different vegetarian and plant-based options. I recently became a vegetarian, so I am excited to see all the different options I have to choose from at this year’s festival.
There are so many vegetarian options at this festival compared to the Epcot International Festival of the Arts. This festival goes on for a couple of months, so hopefully I can try all of these fantastic dishes, but some stick out to me more than others. Last year, I had some great food items throughout this festival, and I saw some new items added to menus, which makes me excited. It’s always nice to see Disney add new food items to the festivals.
Let’s take a peek at the list of vegetarian dishes that have come to this year’s Flower & Garden festival:

The festival started on March 2nd, and since the opening day all I have seen on social media is that the Mediterranean Flatbread is one of the best items at the festival. The Tangierine Cafe has yet to disappoint me as a festival booth, so I believe the hype. I told myself that this would be the year I finally try the Frushi, so I will definitely be getting it. I have never gotten anything from the Trowel & Trellis, so I at least want to get one thing from there, most likely the Impossible Korean Short Ribs. As for the routine menus from Farmers Feast, I am most excited about the Tomato and Cornbread dish. I can’t wait to go to this festival, try all these dishes, and take in all the beautiful sights throughout the park. This festival goes until July 4th, 2022, so there is plenty of time to explore the festival and try all the different items.
