Disney have revealed the dates for next year’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, starting March 4th and ending on the 1st June, 2020. Here’s everything you need to know!
The much loved 90-day spring spectacular at Epcot will sprout in a massive way for its 27th year with seasonal sights, sounds and flavours designed to delight everyone in the family. From the imaginative dishes and beverages offered at the festival’s Outdoor Kitchens to the fan-favourite artists who will perform during the Garden Rock Concert Series, bunches of spring fun will welcome guests around every corner of the park.
This longest-running Epcot festival is known for its themed topiaries, and the Epcot horticulture team already has plans to introduce a brand-new Remy topiary – the centrepiece of a new Ratatouille Garden at the France pavilion. This new garden will be planted with veggies used in a ratatouille recipe. We adore Remy, we’re excited for this! Guests will also find favourite returning character topiaries including Snow White, Elsa and Anna, Belle and Beast among others.
As festival-attendees explore the Outdoor Kitchens, they’ll find raised-bed or in-ground gardens of herbs and produce and discover how to grow their own healthful foods. Thousands of bedding plans in every colour of the rainbow will decorate the landscape around Future World and World Showcase. Dozens of Disney-crafted “flower towers” will offer guests colourful backdrops for spring selfies.
Festive mini-gardens will be set afloat like floral pontoons on the Future Word east and west lakes. Children will love burning off energy with either their brothers/sisters and friends at the festival’s Play Garden and Play ZONE. Guests of all ages will also flock to The Goodness Garden Butterfly House presented by GoGoSqueeZ. The highly-rated “How To” garden will return with ingenious tips for home gardeners.
In case you didn’t know and since we’re new to covering this festival…
The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival started in 1994 as a 38-day celebration of Disney-style gardens and topiaries. The festival now flourishes as a 90-day celebration of spring with something for every generation. The festival, including all gardens and exhibits, is included in regular Epcot admission.
