2023 Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration Scavenger Hunt

2023 Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration Scavenger Hunt

While your instinct may be to run away from a bee, you’ll want to do the opposite during the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.

Like many of the festivals at Epcot, there are plenty of other activities for guests to experience, including Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration Scavenger Hunt.

In addition to Orange Bird, you’ll see a lot of Spike the Bee at Flower and Garden. You can even hunt for him (in a friendly way, of course), if you choose to purchase his scavenger hunt.

Here we go over everything you need to know about the 2023 scavenger hunt starring Spike the Bee, including pricing, prizes, and more!

What is Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration?

Similar to Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt, Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration is great for all festival guests. Yes, this even means adults.

As you walk around the World Showcase, you’ll look for Spike the Bee, who is normally hiding in gardens and foliage. So be sure to keep your eyes peeled.

All you have to do is purchase a map that comes with stickers.

Each time you find Spike the Bee, you’ll place the corresponding sticker on the map of where you found him. It is completely self-guided.

Once you’ve found each Spike and your map is finished, you’ll bring it to a select location to receive a prize!

  • Tip no. 1: You don’t need to complete your map in one visit. You can do it at your own leisure.
  • Tip no. 2: You also don’t actually have to finish the scavenger hunt, but simply show the map you purchased in return for the special prize.
