Foodie Guide to the 2020 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

0

With Spring just around the corner, it’s time for the return of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World Resort! Starting March 4, join us for fun, flowers, and most importantly, FOOD! This year’s festival features 16 Outdoor Kitchens and several other locations through the park that will be offering delectable festival bites and libations.

Special dining packages are also available for the Garden Rocks Concert Series. This concert series runs for 90 nights and features over 250 performances by tons of popular artists. This dining package allows you to have either breakfast, lunch, or dinner at select table-service restaurants in the park and grants you guaranteed seating at one of three concert performances that day. Be sure to reserve these early to savor every single minute! For more information and to make your reservations, visit the Garden Rocks Dining Packages web page.

I have to say, this year’s menus are incredible and you won’t want to miss out on any of these delicious bites! In addition to the returning Outdoor Kitchens like The Honey Bee-stro, The Citrus Blossom, Trowel & Trellis, and Flavor Full Kitchen, there is a new kitchen in The American Adventure called Magnolia Terrace as well as a variety of new offerings, including a selection of plant-based offerings, throughout all of the menus. Check out all of these offerings and more for the 2020 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival detailed below in my official Foodie Guide! The festival runs March 4–June 1, 2020. And while you’re snacking around World Showcase, be sure to pick up a souvenir Spike the Bee spork! He’s the cutest way to snack sustainably! This reusable utensil featuring this bee-loved pollinator is available for purchase at select Outdoor Kitchens while supplies last.

For more information, visit the Walt Disney World Resort website or check out the My Disney Experience mobile app. Happy Snacking!
