These 4 activities should be on the must-do list for any family attending the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival with young children

The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is one of my favorite ‘Disney seasons’ of the year. From the outdoor kitchens to the delicious drinks to the Garden Rocks concert series, the Flower & Garden Festival is one of many reasons I am so glad we moved to the Orlando area last year. While many of my favorite parts of flower and garden may not appeal to young children, there is still plenty for the youngest members of your party to see and do. If you are traveling to EPCOT with young children, this list of the top 4 activies for young children at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is for you!

Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration 

Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration is a fun scavenger-hunt activity that provides a fun way for young kids (and their families) to explore EPCOT. To participate, you just need to purchase a map from select merchandise locations. With your map in hand, the adventure is on as you and your little one search for all 12 Spike spots scattered across EPCOT and mark them with the provided stickers. Once you’ve accomplished the mission, you can then head to Disney Traders or World Traveler to exchange your completed map for a delightful surprise.

During your hunt, don’t miss the chance to explore the Camp Get Out ‘N’ Play Garden Presented by OFF! It might just hold a valuable clue to aid you on your quest. If your little one gets tired from all the excitement, remember that you don’t have to complete the search in a single day. You can pick up your prize at any time, even when you purchase your map. This flexibility is especially handy if naptime sneaks up on you!

Outdoor Kitchens

The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival is known for its mouthwatering cuisine, and there are outdoor kitchens that cater to young palates as well. These food booths offer a variety of dishes that showcase fresh flavors and seasonal ingredients. The variety of kitchens provide a wonderful opportunity to introduce young ones to new flavors from around the world.

Camp Get Out ‘N’ Play Garden Presented by OFF! 

Located near Test Track, the Camp Get Out ‘N’ Play garden provides the best possible combination for families: a place for the kids to run around and have fun, and a shady spot for parents to take a break! Perfect for kids between the ages of 2 and 6, this camp-themed garden provides a padded play area as well as spring riders for the kids to enjoy.

Butterfly Landing Presented by AdventHealth 

I always enjoy taking a stroll through Butterfly Landing during the Food and Wine festival. Located near Imagination! in world adventure, Butterfly Landing provides a great oppertunity for kids of all ages to get close to a myriad of butterflys and learn more about their life cycle.
