The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is returning to Walt Disney World from March 2nd to July 4th, 2022. The festival features beautiful topiaries, tasty food, lively entertainment, and so much more!
Spring is nearly here! Many of us love spring because it heralds the return of both warmer weather and baseball season. When it comes to Walt Disney World, the spring season also signifies a popular festival at Epcot.
This festival is a favorite for many Walt Disney World guests. The bright colors and vibrant array of plant life brings beauty to Epcot’s landscape. That’s why we are breaking down four great reasons for you to visit the Flower and Garden Festival.
1.) The Character Topiaries and Flowers
The plant and flower displays are a highlight of the Flower and Garden Festival. Seeing the Disney character topiaries brings joy to many. What’s great is how much artistic talent went into creating each unique design. You can find a mix of Disney, Pixar, and Muppet character topiaries throughout the theme park.
2.) The Garden Rocks Concert Series
Hearing live music is one of our all-time favorite pastimes. There’s real magic in hearing music and dancing to the beat. Live music is an art form where skilled performers showcase their musical talents. That’s why we recommend checking out the visiting bands performing at Epcot.
The Garden Rocks Concert series brings a wide variety of music to the festival. You’ll find classic rock and pop groups performing in the America Gardens Theatre in World Showcase. We know we will see some of the visiting bands this year!

3.) Festival Food and Drinks
The Outdoor Kitchens are another great experience. You’ll discover a variety of menu items and drinks inspired by the spring season. Lots of creative dishes made with citrus or fresh vegetables at several of the festival booths. One of our favorite festival booths, the Honey Bee-stro, is returning this season. Their Honey Mascarpone Cheesecake, which is featured above, is a popular dessert at the Flower and Garden Festival.
It’s a great chance to try something new. Who knows? You might be inspired to grow your own vegetable garden and cook something new at home!
4.) Flower and Garden Merchandise
The seasonal merchandise being offered this year is quite charming! This year’s festival will have five different merchandise design groupings: Orange Bird, Mickey Mouse Home Garden, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Figment’s Garden, and Spike the Bee. Each design line will be featured on clothing, collectibles, housewares and other items.
The festival starts in a few days and runs for almost three months. It’s one of our favorite seasons at Epcot, so we hope you consider going there this spring. Let us know what you think of Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival this year!
