EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will run from February 28th through May 27th!

The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival features nearly two dozen Disney-crafted topiary displays and sweeping landscaping that transform the EPCOT landscape into a floral extravaganza. Nearly 70,000 festival blooms punctuate World Celebration and other parts of the park, while hundreds of colorful mini-gardens are set afloat in the Park’s central waterway.

The information below highlights the festival events from 2023, and as new information is released for 2024, we’ll be updating this page, so stay tuned!
