Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival menus revealed


If you know me, you know that food is my favorite part of any outing – theme-park outings, in particular. And if you really know me, you know that EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is my favorite of all of the park’s festivals. With all that being said, you can imagine my excitement upon the menus for the 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival being revealed today!

That’s right – another “Taste of” festival iteration is headed to EPCOT. These modified annual events began last year to keep the seasonal celebrations on a smaller scale, for easier social distancing. Luckily for us, though, even these trimmed-down offerings are jam-packed with flavor.

The first Taste of Flower & Garden Festival begins Wednesday, March 3 and will take place through Monday, July 5. Despite being a slimmed-down version, this year’s outing boasts two new outdoor kitchens (noted below) and over 50 new menu items. Yes, you read that right – there are over 20 festival-exclusive outdoor kitchens with over 50 brand-new food and drink options to indulge in! Plus, fan-favorites like Frushi and Violet Lemonade are returning, too.

Also making a repeat appearance at the fresh-tivities this year is the Garden Graze, a fun food stroll that highlights five plant-based offerings in your Festival Passport. As you buy each menu item, you’ll receive a stamp – and, once all five are collected, you can take your passport over to the Pineapple Promenade Outdoor Kitchen for your festival-exclusive (and complimentary!) prize. This doesn’t have to be finished in one day, either – you can bring the same passport back for multiple visits in order to secure all five stamps. (The Garden Graze menu items are noted below.)

Now, enough of the chit-chat – what’s on the menus for the 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival?
