EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

Topiaries & Global Gardens

One aspect of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival that sets it apart from the others is its colorful topiaries. EPCOT is in full bloom in spring thanks to these works of art cultivated by Disney horticulturists. While most festival topiaries remain the same from year to year, it’s always fun to hunt for their changing locations or any new additions to the lineup. 

If colorful gardens are more of your jam, look no further than Flower & Garden Festival! EPCOT offers an array of Global Gardens around the park for guests to enjoy. Some festival favorites in the past have been the butterfly garden, the tea garden, and the floating gardens. We can’t wait to see which gardens will be on display this year!

Pro Tip: Don’t rush past these floral finds around the park. Many of the Global Gardens feature fun, interactive experiences or extra bits of information that you don’t want to miss out on!

Garden Rocks Concert Series

This concert series adds an extra element of fun to this springtime festival. Each day during EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, guests can groove to live performances at the America Gardens Theatre at the American Adventure Pavilion.

EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

Fun For All Ages

One of the best things about the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is that it offers something for everyone in your group to enjoy! For kids, there’s a springtime scavenger hunt, Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration. If there’s a foodie in your party, they can complete the Garden Graze – try five specially-noted menu items and receive a special festival-exclusive treat. Those who love to shop can graze their share of fresh, seasonal festival merchandise around the park, too. It’s easy to find something for each member of your party at EPCOT this spring!

Pro Tip: Make budgeting at the festival even easier with a Disney Gift Card. Simply load up your Disney Gift Card with funds for dining at the outdoor kitchens and shopping festival merchandise, and when you’re out of funds you can refill it again or stop spending for the day! The gift cards created for the festival even feature a wristlet keychain, making it easy to access them as you make your way around EPCOT.

As you can see, exciting things are blooming at EPCOT this spring! We hope you enjoyed this quick guide to EPCOT’s annual springtime festival.  If you’re visiting Walt Disney World from March 2, 2022 until July 4, 2022, make sure to plan a day for EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival 2022.
