Taste of Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival to Run March 3rd – July 5th, 2021

Hi everyone!

Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is scheduled to return on March 3rd and run through July 5th, 2021. This is my favorite time of year at Walt Disney World with beautiful toparies and gardens! The event ended within a week or so of opening last year due to the pandemic and hopefully can run as scheduled this year. The gardeners work so hard to beautify Epcot each year with the stunning displays. Since the park reopened, we have had “Taste of” festivals – it won’t be exactly as you remember each year to be, but with many of the elements intact.

The Disney Parks Blog posted about the festival today, Guests will be delighted to hear their favorite Character topiaries are coming back – from Mickey, Donald and friends, to Remy, Anna & Elsa, Lady & the Tramp, Figment and more. Our Disney Horticulture team is busy planting, pruning and planning now for the kaleidoscope of bright blooms and floating gardens scattered throughout EPCOT, with each one making a perfect backdrop for family photos.

World Showcase will play host to the festival’s Outdoor Kitchens and other food & beverage locations, with over 20 in all.

Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration will be back! Scavenger hunts have become a popular part of all festivals.

Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will run through July 5, and is available with valid admission and a park reservation for the same date.
