Epcot Flower and Garden Festival: 25th Anniversary
You don’t have to be a professional in gardening. It doesn’t matter if you are a newbie. You will love these beauties very much. The spectacular displays at the International Epcot Flower and Garden Festival are spectacular.
Epcot is a Disney destination during the Flower and Garden Festival. Whether you’re taking a picture with the Disney Character Topiary, grabbing a snack from the Outdoor Kitchens, experiencing some throwback fun at a concert at the Garden of the Rocks Concert Series (Friday – Monday), or entertaining the kids in the Playgrounds, every moment will be enjoyable and unforgettable.
What’s New at the 2018 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival
The Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is 25 years old and is still among the most beautiful events. Here are the innovations of the 2018 Flower and Garden Festival.
- How-to Garden:
An area that gives ideas about enjoyable and practical ways to create a great backyard garden at home. Make art frugally by using old materials in your living room.
Imagination Play Garden
Imagination Play Garden appears as a lively playground where our children can play and wander. This area, which is suitable for children of all ages, also includes a separate place for children between the ages of 5-12. Fun ropes etc. that they can climb, tubes that they can pass through and fun musical instruments. (This area is closed when it is dark.)
Inside the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, Honey Bee-stro is hosted by the National Honey Board. It’s part outdoor cuisine, part educational crash course in honey. Take the honey bee on a journey and enjoy the moment like honey.
Spike’s Pollen Land Survey
You can add to the fun with an extra cost of $5.99+tax to collect nectar and pollinate the garden. You can buy your map and stickers from the Port of Entry.
