What is our favorite time to visit Epcot??? Anytime really, but it is simply beautiful during the yearly Flower and Garden Festival. This year the festival runs from March 6th to May 19th and for the first year features food kiosks! The Flower and Garden Festival gives Disney guests a chance to view some amazing expertly designed flower beds, Disney character topiaries, attend special programs and seminars from expert gardeners, and listen to live music. Yes, it is a whole lot so give yourself time and be sure to review the Flower and Garden Website for details when planning your visit.

Flowers, flowers and more flowers
This is what this Festival is all about. Everywhere you look there are stunning displays of flowers, from the Festival Blooms to the Disney movie inspired topiaries. Be sure to stop by Tinker Bell’s Butterfly House; here you can see flowers, live butterflies, and chrysalises ready to hatch. Check out our photo tour.
For the first year the Flower and Garden Festival features food booths, very similar to the Food and Wine Festival but on a smaller scale. These booths are scattered throughout World Showcase and feature food inspired by nature, and the culture of each country. Be sure to watch for the items in Green (TRY it) these items encourage kids and families to TRY fun foods. Give them a taste and let us know what you think. Check out our photo tour.
Kid’s fun areas
Those of you familiar with the Flower and Garden festival know that each year a few new playground areas pop up around the world showcase. This year they have replaced a few of those areas with seating to enjoy your selections from the new food booths. You will still find a playground on the path from Imagination to the World Showcase in the Oz area. You will also find tables scattered throughout World Showcase with kids crafts (all free with park admission) Check out our photo tour.
