In this complete guide, we’ve got details on when it’s held, what you’ll find (including all the great food, drinks, and beautiful topiaries!) and whether or not we think it is worth it.

Let’s get started…

When is the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot?

In 2023, the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival dates are March 1 – July 5, 2023.

That’s more than 120 days to take in all of the gorgeous displays.

The Flower and Garden Festival used to typically take place from the first part of March through the end of May or early June.

However, now, the festival length is expanded by several weeks.

What is it?

The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is a festival that is held at Epcot every spring that focuses on special exhibits, food, and entertainment related to gardening (hence the name).

During the festival, nearly all of Epcot is decked out with gorgeous flowers and vegetation and all things garden-themed.

If you find yourself visiting Epcot while the festival is taking place, you’re in luck because the park is at its most beautiful then.

In addition to the beautiful flowers and topiaries, there are other activities that occur, including unique food and fun entertainment. More details on that below.

How much does it cost?

It is free to attend the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. No special admission is needed.

Outdoor kitchens

Due to the popularity of the Food and Wine Festival, Disney started offering food and beverage options in special kiosks throughout the World Showcase at all of its festivals.

Festival kiosk

In 2023, there are 17 official outdoor kitchens (with 7 additional locations) to grab festival-themed food and beverages.

Here is the complete list of 2023 Flower and Garden booths:

Additional Locations:

Garden Graze

The Garden Graze is a fun little optional activity you can do while exploring the Festival Kitchens.

In the back of the free festival Passports, there is a place for you to collect stamps after you’ve purchased select items.

Garden Graze stamps and completer gift

When you’ve collected the 5 stamps, simply bring your Festival Passport to Pineapple Promenade to redeem a Festival-exclusive treat.

You can complete this at your own leisure, but it must be finished before the festival concludes.

Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunts have become a popular festival addition, and guests visiting Epcot during the Flower and Garden Festival can participate in one of our favorites: Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration.

spike's pollen nation exploration scavenger hunt

We love the scavenger hunts because they are a great way for families to enjoy wandering the World Showcase. They keep the kids entertained, and the hunts usually take you into areas you may skip.

Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration costs $9.99 plus

When you complete your scavenger hunt, you can turn it in for a special prize that’s themed around the festival.

2023 prizes are an option of a cup OR plate:

Note: Prizes need to be picked up by the end of the festival and, even if you don’t complete the entire scavenger hunt, you can still collect your prize.

Garden Rocks Concerts take place 3 times a night – 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8:00 p.m.

It’s not too hard to snag a seat to one of the concerts; however, you want to arrive about 30 minutes before the show. Or, if you prefer, you can avoid the line (and wait) altogether by booking one of the Garden Rocks Dining Packages.

Garden Rocks concert american gardens theater

Garden Rocks Dining Packages

If you want a more up-close view of the show without waiting in line, you can purchase a Garden Rocks Dining Package that will get you a seat in the first 3 rows.

The packages are typically available Fridays through Mondays.

Because this package reserves your seat, unless you want the front-center seat, you can show up much closer to show time (even up to just a few minutes before the show starts) and still snag a good spot.

Garden Rocks Dining Package entrance

If you line up early for the dining package, you’ll be allowed to enter a bit earlier than the standby line, and you can choose where to sit (on an aisle in the center usually gives the best view).

There are different restaurants at Epcot that you can book for either lunch or dinner. Each package includes:

  • Spice Road Table: Includes 2 small plates, a shared dessert platter and a nonalcoholic beverage
  • All Other Participating Restaurants: Includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert or one (1) full buffet/family-style meal (where applicable), as well as a nonalcoholic beverage
  • One guaranteed seat per person to a Garden Rocks concert held on the same day

Note that an adult is ages 10 and up and children are considered ages 3 to 9.

The following restaurants are available for dining packages in 2023:

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
Norway Pavilion
Biergarten Restaurant
Germany Pavilion
Coral Reef Restaurant
The Living Seas
Garden Grill Restaurant
The Land Pavilion
Le Cellier Steakhouse
Canada Pavilion
Regal Eagle Smokehouse
America Pavilion
*Available as same-day dining package
Rose & Crown Dining Room
United Kingdom Pavilion
Spice Road Table
Morocco Pavilion
garden rocks concert

Walk-up dining packages

In addition to packages that you can pre-book, you can sometimes also find walk-up packages available at select dining locations.

In 2023, Regal Eagle has a walk-up dining package.

To check availability for the same-day dining package, visit Regal Eagle Smokehouse. Same-day packages are subject to availability and may not be available on peak dates.

These are only available same day and can be booked in person.

JAMMitors / Jammin’ Gardeners

Another festival favorite are the JAMMitors.

This group has been around for years, and with each festival, they often customize their “instruments” and name to fit the theme.

For the Flower and Garden Festival, you can usually find them in World Celebration jammin’ on metal trash cans!

Spaceship Earth – Encanto Sequence

Encanto fans rejoice!

Disney has added a new Encanto themed sequence to the rotating mini shows on Spaceship Earth. This new display alternates with a couple different shows, including last year’s Pocahontas sequence. Catch both after sunset.

Spaceship Earth Encanto

PhotoPass pictures and Magic Shots

Throughout the park, you’ll find PhotoPass photographers available to take your picture with some of the topiaries.

The easiest way to find PhotoPass locations is by using the map option inside of the My Disney Experience app.

photopass in my disney experience screenshot

There are typically a couple stationed at the front of the park, on the main walkway in Showcase Plaza between World Celebration and the World Showcase, in France, and on the bridge heading over to France from the United Kingdom.

Most of the photographers can take both regular pictures in addition to cute festival-themed Magic Shots, so be sure to ask for those if you stop for a photo.

2023 Flower and Garden Festival Exclusive Magic Shots

  • Tiny World – located near the fountain just beyond the main entrance of the park
  • Isabela – located by the water near Journey Into Imagination With Figment

There are a couple of tours you can do during the Flower and Garden Festival:

  • English Tea Garden Presented by Twinings of London Tea (GUIDED) – this a free tour that lasts 20 minutes and takes place in the United Kingdom pavilion. Guests should register by signing up in The Tea Caddy in the UK pavilion.

    There is also a self-guided tour option available, too. To participate, you just need to pick up a brochure at the Tea Caddy.
English Tea Garden
  • Behind the Seeds – This horticulture tour is available year-round, but the theming makes it an excellent option for a Flower and Garden focused trip, since it takes you backstage on Living with the Land to learn all about the greenhouses and farming techniques being implemented. The cost is $35 per person and you can book online or check the kiosk near the entry to Soarin’ for same-day availability.
  • Not Currently Offered: Epcot Gardens of the World Tour

Fun (and CUTE!) Flower and Garden Festival merchandise can be found throughout the park.

Some of these items are available early, while additional pieces debut throughout the festival. Select items will also be available on shopDisney.

In 2023, Disney Munchlings have joined the festival with the limited-edition Citrus-infused Cupcake Orange Bird with Honey Disney Munchling!

You’ll be able to find adorable plush at the festival and on shopDisney.

Get the Flower and Garden Festival map

Disney used to offer special Flower and Garden maps that highlighted where you could find all the fun festival-exclusive booths, gardens, and topiaries in the park.

But, in recent years, they’ve opted to skip a Festival-themed map and instead put all the festival exclusive items on the map in the My Disney Experience app.

We have put all the booth locations onto one map, though. Make sure you save it to your phone for use in the parks.

Best time to visit

The Flower and Garden Festival (like the other festivals offered at Epcot) is popular with the locals, so avoid the weekends for the lowest crowds.

Also, the opening days of anything (including festivals like this one) are extremely popular, so be prepared for that if you plan to visit during that time.

I planned out our days for our May 2019 trip and realized I planned an Epcot day on a Saturday. We will have our two boys, 4 and 1, with us and I am concerned that the weekends during F&G will be as "rowdy" as the weekends during F&W. Should young families avoid this event on the weekends?

We went to Epcot yesterday. The topiaries were very pretty! Even my 7 year old son stopped to look at them. it was his favorite park.
