Experience the Taste of Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival
March 3 – July 5, 2021
Spring has arrived, and after all that we’ve gone through in the past year, we can all use a little more sunshine in our day. This makes your trip to Orlando, FL even that much more special—especially when you plan on attending Walt Disney World® Resort’s Taste of Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival. It’s time to bring in some cheerfulness and remember why Disney Magic has a special place in our hearts.
If you’re planning your family vacation, visiting this jaw dropping event is definitely a must! Walt Disney World® Resort pulls all the stops this year while maintaining health guidelines for the continued safety of team members and guests. Spend the day enjoying the majesty of the topiary displays, gardens and of course, the food!
Topiary Displays and Gardens
View the beautiful topiary versions of all your favorite characters and experience the many different gardens throughout the park. Be sure to have your phones and cameras fully charged because you’ll definitely want to take some photos to remember. Say hello to Sorcerer Mickey Mouse, Broom, Ostriches, Hippo and Mushroom as you pass through the main entrance. Visit some of your favorites like Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy by the United Kingdom Pavilion, Beauty and the Beast at the France Pavilion, and of course Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Goofy between Future World & World Showcase!
In addition to the topiary displays, you’ll definitely need to visit the many gardens throughout the park as well. Please be sure to check the availability of each garden as some gardens may close at dusk. Here is a list of some of our favorite gardens this year:
- Festival Blooms – overlooks Future World’s East and West lakes.
- The Goodness Garden Butterfly House Presented by GoGo squeeZ® – Visit Future World West to look at butterflies up close and personal.
- Bamboo Garden – Venture to the China Pavilion so see the many types of bamboo
- Tropical Rainforest Garden – You’ll have to visit the Mexico pavilion to see the diversity of the Mexican rainforest and learn about the different species.
With all of your exploring throughout the day, you’ll definitely build up an appetite. Enjoy some of the festival culinary offerings at each of the Exclusive Outdoor Kitchens throughout World Showcase. The kitchens are open daily for the duration of the Festival during normal park operational hours. So, whether you try a Spicy Hot Dog with Pineapple Chutney at Showcase Plaza, a Soy-glazed Pork Shank in Japan, or a Beer Flight at Germany, you can be sure to find a special culinary treat for the whole family.
