Nothing quite celebrates spring like Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival, which is held at Disney every year.
The food, the gardens, the activities… there’re so many festivities to enjoy, and it’s the perfect way to relax, eat quality food, and have loads of fun!
I went ahead and spent a long weekend there to see firsthand what Disney was offering this year for the festival, and I really think they went above-and-beyond. I mean, there was just SO MUCH to do, but it didn’t feel overwhelming at all (Disney’s very good at that).
Are you considering taking a look? Or maybe you’d just like a sneak insider-peek into this amazing festival? Well, that’s why I (and this blog post) am here!

What To Know About Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival
- This is the longest-running flower and garden going from the beginning of March until July 5th. AND It is my favorite festival!
- Want to avoid crowds? Get there right when Epcot opens a bit before 11 am. It gets more crowded as the day goes on. Saturdays are the most crowded and Sunday is the least crowded of the two weekend days.
- It is perfect for adults and kids alike because there are fun activities, food, and drinks for all ages!
- Kids can enjoy Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration a scavenger hunt throughout the park. Note, the scavenger hunt does not need to be completed in order to get your prize. I often get the prize once I purchase the scavenger hunt (one time I forgot to get it on the last day of the festival).
- Many drinks are available with or without alcohol (did we mention this was for all ages?)
- Topiaries of your favorite Disney characters can be found throughout the park. They are perfect for photos with or without you!
- Watch local Orlando bands as well as the Voices of Liberty and Mariachi Cobre. They always put smiles on people’s faces!
- Jardin de Fiestas (Mexico) and Bauernmarkt: Farmers Market (Germany) had the longest lines so hit those early.
- Lines look long but move fast. I never waited more than five minutes for any food or drink.
- Diets are still not an issue at Disney! Any thing that is gluten-free is marked on the menu. Be mindful of possible cross-contamination, and when in doubt always talk to the chef. Some of the food that is not marked is gluten-free or can be made gluten-free.There are also plant-based menu items marked.
Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival is just a delight every year, and there is nothing but good vibes and times. And if you want to see all the flowers, green statues, tasty foods, and spring activities, then this is 100% the place to be!
