Spring is still a few months away, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t plan for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!
This morning, we learned that the 2022 festival will start on March 2nd and run through July 4th. We can’t wait to enjoy all of our returning favorites, as well as check out the new things the festival has to offer! And if you’re trying to plan a trip, we’ve got the full list of everything confirmed for 2022.
First of all, it wouldn’t be the Flower & Garden Festival without some stunning topiaries! Disney shared today that there will be a new entrance topiary featuring Goofy and a 50th Anniversary birthday cake this time around. We’ll also be welcoming Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs back to the Germany Pavilion and Lumiere and Cogsworth back to France, among many other fan-favorite topiary designs.
In addition to the topiaries, you’ll find “thousands of blooms forming colorful, living panoramas all around EPCOT” and the Health Full Trail will be available along the Imagination walkway. In this trail presented by AdventHealth, your whole family can learn tips for staying well.
Another thing you can’t have an EPCOT festival without? Well, FOOD! There will be 18 outdoor kitchens this year, in addition to other food and beverage locations around EPCOT. You’ll enjoy fresh fruits, vegetables, and creative takes on popular dishes.
And if you’re excited about entertainment, you’ll be happy to know that the Garden Rocks concert series is officially coming back! You’ll find a variety of bands performing daily at the America Gardens Theatre, and more information will be released soon about who those bands will be.
For those hoping to explore the fest in style, there is going to be plenty of merchandise as well. According to Disney, this is “including vibrant apparel, drinkware, accessories and more.” New collections will launch just in time for the festival.
Also returning this year is the Garden Graze. When you pick up a Festival Passport, you’ll find a list of five different dishes to try throughout the fest. As you order each one, you’ll earn a stamp in your passport. Once you’ve collected all five stamps, you can head to Pineapple Promenade to pick up a special prize!
And finally, let’s talk about Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration. This beloved scavenger hunt is coming back again, and to participate, all you need to do is purchase a map for $9.99 at select locations around the park. You’ll search for little Spike the Bee figurines as you go, and once you find all of them, you can head to Disney Traders or World Traveler for your prize.
That’s everything we know about so far, but stay tuned to AllEars for more updates on everything confirmed for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!
