Spring is almost here, and with it comes the 2020 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival! We were invited by Walt Disney World for an early look at this amazing event, and managed to get a sneak peek at some of the new merchandise available during the festival!
Come take a tour with us as we get an exclusive first look at a selection of the shirts, sippers, and spring-time delights that await you when the festival opens March 4th!
The Dawn of the Orange Bird
The Orange Bird takes center stage this year with the new Hello Sunshine collection, bringing citrusy hues to a Festival Marketplace near you!
We were super excited to see some of this much-anticipated merch in person, including these cute Orange Bird Ears.
We didn’t even know we needed this Orange Bird Straw Hat until we saw it!
We’ve been waiting patiently until we can snag the gorgeous and cheerful Orange Bird Spirit Jersey — perfect for Spring and Summer!
We can’t wait to serve all of our friends some tasty orangeade out of this Orange Bird Pitcher.
And we can carry all the smaller merch we grab at the fest in potentially the cutest Loungefly we’ve ever seen, the Orange Bird Backpack!
Minnie Goes Floral
The new World in Bloom Featuring Minnie’s Flower Cart collection brings flower inspired hues to the resort, with delicate pastels and brilliant bursts of color.
Between the World in Bloom Mug and Tumbler, there are plenty of pretty options for us to get our sip on.
Dooney and Bourke is getting in on this pattern too with the World in Bloom Bag and Tote!
There’s a World in Bloom Pitcher, too! We think this would be perfect for a spring garden party, or even just as a watering can upgrade for your plants!
To match your pitcher, put this stylish Minnie plate on your table setting.
We love some fun reversible sequins, too, like the ones on this World in Bloom tank top.
Is there a prettier way to keep track of your keys than with this accessory?
Old Mickey Mouse Had A Farm
Mickey’s Farmers Market collection brings rustic, home-grown charm to the festival, with an adorable retro-style Mickey showing off the fruits (and veggies) of his labor! Look at this sweet cap!
Are two keychains too many? Maybe. But we’re gonna nab this Mickey keychain too anyways!
This Flower Pot mug has so many cute details from the Mickey design to the corn husk handle.
Avoid the gummy Disney paper straws when you sip your festival drinks from your very own pair of Flower and Garden reusable straws.
And Trash Can Table Shakers? We need them!! One features Mickey and the other features Spike the Bee.
Oh Honey, You Look Fabulous!
Spike the Bee stars in the new Sweet As Can Bee collection, celebrating nature’s perfect pollinators. Spike, who first appeared in the 1940s short Window Cleaners, is usually depicted as a nuisance for Donald and Pluto, but this collection depicts him as a helpful pollinator, just like real bees!
This garden stake is one of the most appropriate pieces of merch we previewed.
We’re digging the Spike tee too and look at that hanging on the mannequin. It’s a roll-up picnic blanket!
Like every event, this year’s festival includes some merchandise exclusive to Annual Passholders!
We’re freaking out for the Watering Can Mugs for Passholders. The Mickey and Minnie designs will be available at the start of the festival.
And they’ll switch over to the Spike and Figment mugs on April 20th!
You’ll be able to find all of this fantastically fresh new merchandise at Epcot when the festival opens on March 4th!
