The 2018 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival will run from February 28 – May 28 — 90 days of beautiful flowers and delicious foods! This year marks the 25th anniversary of this fan-favorite festival.
Never experienced a Flower and Garden festival before? Stop what you’re doing and plan your trip now! Not only does this festival bring beautiful topiaries and gardens to EPCOT, it also bring lots of outdoor kitchens serving delicious treats! Check out the full food lineup for 2018 right here.
The topiaries and gardens (11 this year!) are always showstoppers bringing our favorite Disney characters to life. You also can participate in not one but TWO scavenger hunts during the festival this year! Read all about the annual Egg-stravanganza here and the brand new Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration scavenger hunt here.
While kids (and adults too!) will absolutely love the scavenger hunts, the festival also sports 3 interactive play areas — two of which are new for this year!
Imagination Play Garden – NEW!
Location: Imagination Walkway
On your mark, get set, play! Kids can test their reflexes on a net climber, discover different sounds through a musical maze and put all 5 senses to work while surrounded by lush natural landscapes.
The How-To Garden – NEW!
Location: Future World West
Garner innovative gardening tips and bring the Flower & Garden Festival home—from building your own butterfly house to botanical crafts and other sustainable ideas.
Road to the Florida 500
Location: Along the Test Track Walkway
Cross the finish line with topiary pals Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez! Sit back, relax and recharge while your kids zip around a race-track-themed garden inspired by the Disney•Pixar’s Cars. Put the pedal to the metal in a fun, innovative and interactive area for kids of all ages!
There are also multiple tours you can book to truly experience all things Flower and Garden. Find all the tour details here.
Reminder: Annual Passholders can pick up a set of spring-themed magnets during the Festival. From February 28 through April 8 Passholders can receive a Mickey Mouse magnet, and from April 9 through May 28 Passholders can pick up a Minnie Mouse magnet.
We’re only a week away from opening day of the festival and I absolutely cannot wait! Are you planning on making a trip this year? I hope to see you there!
