Epcot's International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World


Epcot's International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World is a magical time at the park that you and your loved ones have to experience. This year the festival runs from March 6, 2019, to June 3, 2019. It's ending soon, but this is a festival that happens every year, so you have a chance to attend next year. I have been lucky to attend a few times, and each time there has been something new to experience. I wanted to give you a guide that gives you tips, and what to expect so you can enjoy everything you want to experience.


The beauty of Epcot's Flower & Garden Festival is always the best to see, especially the garden displays. These displays make Epcot come to life with color and beauty, and are sure to wow your kids. What I love about the festival is not only the beautiful flowers and sculptures, but the food is what gets me every time. We tried a bunch of new foods and drinks, and I have to tell you my belly wasn't mad at me. If you are a foodie, this is the place to be when visiting Disney. I will say it time, and time again, Disney food never disappoints.


Like the Food and Wine Festival, there are kiosks for you to try some food from around the world. I like to think of this as tapas on the go. The festival did have two new kiosks, The Berry Basket and Northern Bloom. I can tell you that you will end up spending quite a bit, but I personally think it's worth trying different food and drinks. The experience of Epcot is feeling like you are in different parts of the world, so why not try food from different countries right?

Visiting in May beware it's Love Bug season so if your little ones are scared of bugs probably not the month to head to Disney. I would say head to the festival late March early April.

Pick up a Passport, its fun to mark what exhibits you visited and foods you have tried.

Cool off at The Seas with Nemo and Friends or Turtle Talk with Crush.

If you are looking for sit down dining at Epcot Coral Reef restaurant is awesome but book in advance.

Hope you guys enjoyed this quick guide of Epcot's International Flower & Garden Festival an stay tuned for more Disney content coming your way.
