EPCOT's International Flower & Garden Festival

Updated: Mar 7


It’s officially the most beautiful time of the year in EPCOT. New topiaries are budding around the park for EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival. Beginning February 28 through May 7, guests can indulge in fresh flavors, merchandise, and enjoy fun for all ages.


Topiaries

The star of the show from last year will be making her return. Tiana will once again be featured as a topiary at the 2024 Flower and Garden Festival. She will be joined by other returning fan favorites like Goofy, Winnie the Pooh and friends, Anna and Elsa, and the Family Madrigal featuring Mirabel, Luisa, Isabela, and Antonio! We absolutely cannot wait for this year's new editions. Upon entering the park, guests will be greeted by Asha, Valentino, and Star from the new movie Wish. Miguel and Dante from Pixar’s Coco will also be making their debut. Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy will also be making an appearance with a mixtape; he will be located right outside of Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind. If you find yourself entering EPCOT through the International Gateway, we highly recommend venturing to the front of the park to check out the topiaries at the front of the park. There is even a Photopass photographer there to take your picture!


Outdoor Kitchens

Fresh and flavorful bites will be available throughout the World Showcase at different outdoor kitchens. It wouldn’t be the International Festival of Flower and Garden without some fan favorites returning. Frushi will be making its return to the Hanami outdoor kitchen in the Japan Pavilion, and the crowd-pleaser La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush and the Beignet Caramélisé will be returning to Fleur de Lys in the France Pavilion. This year there will be some new plant-based options making an appearance. Brunchcot, located near Test Track, will have a Biscuit and Gravy with Impossible Chicken Fried Steak and Sausage Gravy. Plant-based items will be noted on the festival menus. For guests with special dietary requirements, you can request to speak with a chef prior to placing your order.


Garden Graze

Stop by and grab a festival passport to serve as your guide throughout all of the delectable outdoor kitchens. There is a Garden Graze portion of the passport that lists “Garden Graze” menu items that are at different outdoor kitchens. Purchase and try at least FIVE of the items and head to the Pineapple Promenade to receive a specialty treat. Make sure that you ask the cast member to stamp your passport each time that you order a Garden Graze menu item. Feel free to complete the entire “challenge” in one day or bring back your passport throughout the festival. This is an activity that can be completed all at once or over time.


Garden Rocks

The Garden Rocks Concert Series is the perfect way to rock out to some incredible live music. There are both local musicians and globally recognized artists performing this spring! There are nightly shows at 5:30 PM, 6:45 PM, and 8 PM, but this is weather permitting. Performers include Simple Plan, Plain White T’s, and so many more. For guests who would like to guarantee themselves a seat to these fun and exciting concerts, the Garden Rocks Dining Package can be booked when dining reservations can be made. The Garden Rocks Dining Package includes a meal at an in-park table service restaurant and a voucher for a guaranteed seat at a show.
