It’s the 25th celebration of the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival! In addition to the attractions at Epcot, your admission includes an expanded event that will tantalize your taste buds while offering multiple photo opps with beautiful topiaries and gardens. This fun festival is not to missed! Here’s what you can see and do at this year’s Epcot event.
I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are my own.
What to See & Do at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival
Hover over the image below to swipe through of my favorites from this year’s festival!
With gardens, flowers, and topiaries at every turn, you’ll draw new inspiration for your own garden at home! Many of the gardens provide educational features to help you expand your knowledge. Discover beautiful butterflies in the Butterfly House, visit the How-To Garden for tips and ideas, and stop by the Imagination Play gardens for kids to explore and play! Check out these guided tours too.
Food and Beverage
You won’t want to miss the festival’s 15 Outdoor Kitchens where guests can taste fresh flavors from around the world! I highly recommend The Berry Basket field greens salad with strawberries, quinoa, spiced pecans with a strawberry vinaigrette. The Cider House house-made potato and cheddar cheese biscuits are tasty too. Make a stop at the NEW Honey Bee-stro for all sorts of delicious eats, but I could not get enough of their roasted cauliflower with honey carrot puree, rice pilaf, asparagus and sunflower brittle.
The kitchens also offer locally made brews and wines too. You’ll want to make a stop at France for their Rose Frozen Slush. It’s so refreshing! And don’t miss the Frozen Lemonade with Firefly Blackberry Moonshine at The Smokehouse. This was hands-down my favorite drink!

Garden Rocks Concert Series
Visit the American Gardens theater and relax with some chart-topping musical acts. While at the festival, I was able to see Night Ranger sing their classic song, “Sister Christian.” I recommend arriving at the theater at least 30 minutes early for decent seats.
