The festival introduces some exciting new topiaries of Mirabel, Antonio, Isabela, and Luisa from Disney’s “Encanto.” These topiaries near the EPCOT main entrance are a must-do photo opportunity to mark your visit.
During the festival, you can sample various food from the various food kitchens across the park. Though we don’t have the complete menu list for this year, some of the returning and new booths popping up in EPCOT include Trowel & Trellis, Pineapple Promenade, Northern Bloom, Honey Bee-stro, Jardin de Fiestas, Primavera Kitchen, Magnolia Terrace, La Isla Fresca, Hanami, and Bauernmarkt. Moreover, the Brunchcot and “Farm Fresh” booths are new to this year’s festival.
Apart from the new topiaries, there are also returning favorites like Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, Tick Tock Croc, Figment, Anna, Elsa, and many more. This fest celebrates greenery, foliage, and flowers through beautiful flower beds, topiaries, and fresh farm-to-table cuisine.
Moreover, the popular Garden Rocks Concert Series is back, featuring favorite tunes at the America Gardens Theatre.
Over 15 Outdoor Kitchens will offer specialty menus of scrumptious cuisine and beverages. One of the favorites, The Citrus Blossom, is moving to a new location at Odyssey with new menu items.
To commemorate your visit, you can also purchase the official ’70s-inspired Orange Bird merchandise, including apparel, headwear, and drinkware.
For a fun scavenger hunt experience, you can follow Spike the Bee on his pollination trail at Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration. The event is suitable for all ages, and once you find Spike in each garden on your map, add the corresponding sticker of the plant he is visiting.
On the bridge to World Showcase, you can enjoy the scents of spring with Blossoms of Fragrance presented by Scentsy. Surrounded by vibrant butterfly topiaries, guests will be invited to follow their noses to six scent stations to form lasting memories with the help of unforgettable aromas.
