Flower and Garden Festival is returning to Epcot at Walt Disney World beginning March 2, 2016. It has been expanded this year to last a full 90 days rather than the 75 days in previous years! That means that if you visit any time between March 2 and May 30, you\’ll get to see all the amazing topiaries and maybe even a gardening seminar or two! Last year, we published a blog on the Flower and Garden Festival from previous years. It\’s always an amazing feast for the eyes but it can also be a feast for your mouth! 13 festival kiosks surround World Showcase Lagoon–more than any previous year! With some yummy sounding options that include Jamaica Braised Beef and Jerk-Spiced Grouper, there are even more reason to visit. A new Cider House kiosk will have a delicious salad that even uses salad green grown right in Epcot at The Land pavilion!
It wouldn\’t be a Flower and Garden Festival without lots of flowers and topiaries. A large topiary featuring Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Donald\’s mischievous nephews, will welcome you at the front of Epcot. A lovely Harmony Gardens musical playground will have the Fab Five and will feature real instruments where children–and adults–can make music with drums, chimes and more! Each weekend there will a complimentary gardening seminar featuring a gardening expert, and, of course, the Garden Rocks concert series will return! See below for the just announced list! As always, the Flower and Garden Festival is included in your Epcot admission, so carve out some time during your spring Disney World vacation to stop by Epcot.
