What's Blooming at EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival 2020

A note from Mommy Frog: EPCOT is temporarily closed until July 15, 2020, in order to limit the spread of COVID-19. Upon reopening, some Flower and Garden topiaries (bonjour, Remy!) and merchandise will be available at EPCOT's Food and Wine Festival, which will run from opening day through fall 2020 ... the longest ever! For more details about park reopenings and procedures, read our blog post, which we will continue to update with the latest news. 

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - PinterestThe EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival is the perfect combination of delicious food, beautiful greenery displays and learning experiences. The park blossoms into a beautiful garden of sights, sounds and tastes of the spring season. EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 started March 4, and was unfortunately cut short due to COVID-19. But there's good news! Some of the topiaries and merchandise from the festival will be making an appearance at EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival.

Each year during the festival, guests can take in exquisitely crafted topiaries of Disney characters, a variety of themed gardens and play areas and tantalizing farm-to-table-style dishes at the Outdoor Kitchens. Even if you don't have a green thumb, you will still find plenty to enjoy. While I technically have a green thumb, I must confess I'm not much of a gardener and still enjoy this festival. Tad and Lily love looking at all the "topies," and Leap enjoys rocking out at the concerts. What's even better? The festival is included with regular park admission.

In 2020, some of the new "seeds" that were planted included an adorable Remy topiary in the France pavilion and a Garden Graze lineup of menu items (similar to the Cookie Stroll from the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays). Because of all the exciting new changes coming to EPCOT, the heart of this year's festival took place in World Showcase.

EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival 2020 Overview

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - Monorail

Move aside, Food and Wine ... EPCOT Flower and Garden is one of our favorite festivals of the year! We love the spring vibes blossoming throughout the park. It's a great way to celebrate the season and enjoy the beautiful weather!

EPCOT is decked out with lush gardens full of bright flowers perfect for family photo-ops. Character topiaries can be found around every corner, from classic favorites such as Beauty and the Beast to sisters Anna and Elsa. Interactive play areas, a butterfly garden and special seasonal art and merchandise will keep you and your tadpoles busy all day! And don't froget our favorite part of any festival ... the food! EPCOT Flower and Garden plates up fresh favorites highlighting seasonal ingredients.

When you enter the park, be sure to pick up the Festival Passport! It includes detailed information about the topiary and garden destinations, concert times and the Outdoor Kitchen menus. It came in handy for planning our day, as well as making sure we didn’t miss out on anything that was new.

While EPCOT is undergoing a transformation, the center of Future World is closed off just behind Spaceship Earth. You have a choice to turn left toward Mission: SPACE and Test Track down a pathway that passes the temporary home of MouseGear, or veer right toward The Seas with Nemo and Friends. As for festival offerings, there are a few topiaries and gardens sprinkled in Future World. Bambi, Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Bo Beep can be found in Future World East, while Sorcerer Mickey, Figment and the Butterfly House are in Future World West.

Sculpted Topiaries at EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival 2020

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - Sorcerer Mickey

I’ve never left the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival without nagging Leap to re-do our landscaping. Inspiration is everywhere! Disney’s expert team of horticulturists work year-round to create beautiful landscapes across the park. Look for the topiaries at the entrance, in Future World and all around World Showcase. EPCOT Flower and Garden exhibits its talent with incredible life-size recreations of beloved Disney characters.

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - Remy

A new Remy topiary is at the centerpiece of a Ratatouille Garden at the France pavilion, where the Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure attraction is set to debut soon. Be sure to take a peek at the list of ingredients planted in the garden, as they make up a ratatouille recipe!

Around World Showcase, you can find more amazing displays (and excellent photo-ops!). Here's a full list of topiaries and their locations:

  • Bambi and friends - near temporary MouseGear location
  • Buzz Lightyear - near Mission: SPACE
  • Woody, Bo Beep and her sheep - near Test Track
  • Figment - near Imagination! pavilion
  • Sorcerer Mickey, Ostriches and Hippo - near Imagination! pavilion
  • Mickey, Minnie and Goofy - Showcase Plaza between Mexico and Canada
  • Pluto and Chip 'n' Dale - Showcase Plaza between Mexico and Canada
  • Donald, Daisy, Huey, Dewey and Louie - Showcase Plaza between Mexico and Canada
  • The Three Caballeros - Mexico
  • Anna and Elsa - Norway
  • Pandas - China
  • Simba and friends - Outpost
  • Snow White and Dopey - Germany
  • Lady and the Tramp - Italy
  • Dragon - Japan

  • Remy - France
  • Peter Pan and Captain Hook - United Kingdom
  • Tinker Bell and fairy houses - United Kingdom
  • Winnie the Pooh and friends - United Kingdom
  • Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy - United Kingdom

Stunning in the daylight, the topiaries take on a whole new life as the gardens and sculptures are illuminated at night.

Themed Gardens at EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival 2020

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - New Germany Miniature Gardens

The festival features almost two dozen themed gardens and other destinations throughout the park — from the Shakespeare Garden in the United Kingdom pavilion to a new miniature garden display in Germany.

Located by Bo Beep's Playtime Training Grounds, Outdoor Escapes is a new garden destination that allows you to hide from the sun for a moment and rest your froggy legs from hopping around. It showcases how easy it is to create your own outdoor space at home — no design expertise, huge budget or green thumb required.

While fun and educational for everyone, we really appreciate how these exhibits teach our tadpoles how to create gardens and provide wildlife habitats … if pond life hasn’t taught them enough already!

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - Butterfly on Girl

A festival-favorite, the Goodness Garden Butterfly House is always full of colorful blooms and a flurry of several species of butterfly. It's in a new location in between The Land and the Imagination! pavilions. Explore the life of a butterfly from its emersion from chrysalis to adulthood and watch as the fully-grown butterflies flutter around the garden from flower to flower. You might even find a butterfly has alighted on you, especially if you’re wearing a flowered dress or shirt. This is the only place where a female will pay attention to Leap when he's wearing his loud floral aloha shirts. (I kid, but not much.)

Interactive Play Areas at EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival 2020

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - Play Full Garden

Tadpoles have flower and garden activities especially for them. Every year, there are play gardens that surround your tadpoles with lush natural landscapes and playscapes.

In 2020, two play areas returned from the previous year: Play Full Garden in the Imagination Walkway and Bo Peep's Playtime Training Grounds near Test Track. Lily really gets a kick out of the big net climber ball in the Play Full Garden!

The scavenger hunt, Spike's Pollen Nation Exploration, keeps the tadpoles on their webbed toes. It costs $7.99 and takes little ones on an "I Spy"-style adventure throughout World Showcase. Once completed, tadpoles return the map to Port of Entry for a surprise reward! This is a low-cost way to keep your tadpoles occupied and receive a cute souvenir as a result. Worth it!

EPCOT Flower and Garden 202 - Flavor Full Kitchen

I'm an epicurean amphibian. It's fun to see the topiaries and gardens, but my favorite plants are the ones I can eat!

This year, we tested out the new outdoor kitchen, Magnolia Terrace, opting for the boudin "two ways." Leap and I thought it was a very tasty dish, but Lily wasn't a fan of the spicy mustard. She did, however, enjoy the Honey Peach Freeze from The Honey Bee-stro (plus, it came with a Spike the Bee sipper cup!). Meanwhile, Tad was on a mission to collect stamps for the Garden Graze, which is new to the festival. Like the Cookie Stroll from Festival of the Holidays, there are five featured menu items. Collect five stamps (any time during the entirety of the festival), and you'll receive a free treat from Pineapple Promenade.

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - Cotton Candy Flower

Festival favorites such as Florida Fresh, Primavera Kitchen and La Isla Fresca returned in 2020 with a delicious selection. Don't forget to stop by Lotus House, where you’ll find a cotton candy artist spinning HUGE Instagram-worthy cotton candy pieces designed like flowers. It’s so fun to watch! Because it’s a non-menu item, just be aware it may not be offered during your specific visit and is only available certain times of the day.

Many other festival favorites returned in 2020, including the perfect example of EPCOT Flower and Garden's fresh and unique eats: FRUSHI! Fresh Pineapple, Strawberry and Melon rolled with Coconut Rice, sprinkled with Toasted Coconut and Whipped Cream with Raspberry Sauce on the side at Hanami. Violet Lemonade, anyone?

Merchandise at EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival 2020

EPCOT Flower and Garden 2020 - Orange Bird Minnie Ears

You may want to pack an extra duffle bag for your merch. There are too many items to choose from, but I couldn’t leave without the new Orange Bird Minnie Ears! Adorbs.

We are huge fans of all EPCOT festivals, but we find Flower and Garden has the most gorgeous, fun merch. Visit any of the festival markets located throughout the park, as well as MouseGear, to find four different Flower and Garden collections: Minnie's World in Bloom, Home Grown, Sweet as Can Bee and Orange Bird.

What are the dates for the Epcot Flower and Garden Show for 2021? Thank you!

Mar 30, 2020 at 8:08 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Barb!

The dates for 2021 haven't been released just yet, but this year, the festival was scheduled to take place from March 4 to June 1. The timeframe each year is generally very similar, but we'll update with the exact dates as soon as we know more! :)

How long does it usually take to go through flower and garden exhibit?

Mar 6, 2020 at 7:22 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Aliya!

Most of the park takes part in the festivities, so this is largely up to you and what you'd like to see! To see everything included at this year's festival, you could definitely make a whole day of it. If you only wanted to walk around to see the topiaries and get a few items from the marketplaces, you could reserve a few hours to do so.

Hoppy planning!

Hi Eric!

No news just yet on when these will be released! We've got our eyes and ears open - keep an eye out at ShopDisney.com, too!

Bloom-wise, when is the best time to visit the F&G Festival?

Jan 10, 2020 at 9:05 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Another Garden Fan!

We are toadally huge fans, too! Topiaries and gardens are installed and remain throughout the festival, so in terms of blooms, things should remain more or less the same throughout! They are meticulously kept. We instead consider at factors like crowds, weather and our own schedules when determining when to visit, as well as any concerts or tours that we'd like to participate in. You can find the weather and crowd forecast here, and a list of all of the fun activities going on throughout the festival here to choose the time that checks all of your boxes!

I'm going to be their the first week of June. We plan on doing the Flower and Garden Festival on the 2nd. My son will be WAY more interested in the rides while I want to see the "topies" Any chance they will still be up on the 8th even though the festival is technically over?

May 13, 2019 at 11:41 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kaci!

There are a few "topies" that stick around year-round! Have a frogtastic trip!

Hi- we are going to be in Florida the first week of June, and thinking about checking out the flower festival (last minute) as I didn’t realize it was open til the 3rd. As we wouldn’t be able to get there until the 2nd, in your opinion- would it still be worth it to go, or wait until next year, when we could book it earlier in the spring?

Mar 25, 2019 at 9:01 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi there!

If you're just looking to experience the festival itself (and not looking for any special events or concerts that would have date constrictions), we still recommend that you check it out! Have a frogtastic time! There is something fresh every year at the festival, so you could always check it out two years in a row if you find that you love it as much as we do :)

Hoppy planning!

We were just there and the garden festival was so amazing!! I’m wishing I’d bought some of the garden festival merchandise. Is there any way to buy it over the phone or will it eventually be released on online? Any insight/advice is sure appreciated!

Mar 18, 2019 at 7:59 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Garden Fan!

Unfortunately, you aren't able to order via phone, but they typically release some items online! Take a look at Shop Disney to see if they've got what you're looking for :)

Is there anywhere to find a list of what Outdoor Kitchen foods can be covered by DDP snack credits? It all looks so good, I'm thinking about cancelling Garden Grill in order to enjoy food booths for dinner! (We have Akershaus for lunch). Thanks!

No lists have been released just yet, but there are generally lots of yummy options for snack credits. We'll keep you posted as the festival kicks into gear!

Hey! So excited for my fav festival and all the new things to try and see!

I don’t know if I missed this but the dates and bands don’t match Disney’s website. Ex: sim plan plan is not till March 17. Has it changed?

Thank you for your awesome site.

Hi Jeen!

We were so excited to attend, and we're sure you'll have a great time, too! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. We just double-checked to be certain - the dates for the concerts come after the artist in question in this list (i.e., Simple Plan March 17-20), so not to worry - nothing's changed in terms of dates! :)

Have a frogtastic trip!

My family will be attending the 2019 Flower and Garden Festival. It's getting close to the 180 day mark, so I'll be making dining reservations soon. I'm planning on getting a reservation for Akershus, which is included in the list of restaurants offering Garden Rocks dining packages. Will the reservation I make get me the reserved seating or will I have to call to change my reservation to a dining package after the schedule is released?

Hi Brooke!

That's a great question. Typically, the dining packages are displayed as separate reservations once they're announced. We do think it's a good idea to make a standard reservation now, and then call and adjust as soon as the details are announced for the package.

Hoppy planning!

The EPCOT 2015 Flower and Garden Festival was the worst we have seen in the 3 years straight that we have attended. No HGTV guests, no give- aways and the special areas around the park that normally had special displays and ideas for your own home and garden were merely just pretty flowers. Even the butterfly exhibit wasn't all that great. We were very disappointed this year. Where in the past we would have gone back two or three more times during the festival, we will not this year. Hope the food and wine festival this year doesn't disappoint. We may have to re-think our seasonal passes for next year.

I've never been to Disney World, but I've heard many different opinions about Epcot. What do you think of their new ideas for a Guardians of the Galaxy and Ratatouille attraction?

We just returned from WDW on March 10th. The exhibits at Epcot and World Showcase were awesome. While traveling from country to country we stopped along the way to check out the food booths and incredible topiary work. If you go to Disney during the flower and garden show this is a must see.
