25th Annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival Is Underway At Walt Disney World

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival started on February 28, and this year it will run daily through May 28. That’s three whole months of beauty at the theme park. This year there have been a few additions. Check out the photos below!

New for 2018:

The How-to Garden: an area which gives even those without a green thumb ideas on fun ways to create a garden at home.

Imagination Play Garden: a play area for kids of all ages, with a separate area for children ages 5-12.

The Honey Bee-stro: part outdoor kitchen, part educational area on honey.

Spikes Pollen Nation Declaration: a scavenger hunt where kids look for Spike the Bee and then receive a prize. There is an extra cost.

Some of the other highlights:

Garden Rocks Concert Series: popular artists play at the America Gardens Theater.

Outdoor Kitchens: there are 15 different outdoor kitchens this year. The most popular dish so far is the Beef Brisket Burnt Ends and Smoked Pork Belly Slider at The Smokehouse.

Topiaries: favorite Disney characters come to life in a different way. You’ll see classic Disney characters, princesses, and other popular characters.

Tours: there are several tours to choose from, including self guided tours that are included in park admission.

Egg-stravaganza: the popular scavenger hunt will return on March 16, meaning that kids will have two different things to search for.

Most activities at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival are included with park admission. Some events might be held only on select days, and all events take place weather permitting.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
