Walt Disney World has just announced that its annual EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival will be returning this spring!
Disney will be bringing back its iconic character topiaries as well as over 20 Outdoor Kitchens for Guests to stop and try a bite to eat from various locations “around the world.”
Note that this is another “Taste of EPCOT” festival — amid the ongoing pandemic, Disney World has been modifying offerings like the festival events at EPCOT since the parks reopened in July 2020.
The 2021 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival will debut on March 3, 2021 and run through July 5, 2021. Guests can look forward to seeing character topiaries such as Mickey Mouse and friends, Anna and Elsa, Remy, Lady and the Traamp, Figment and more!
Guests will also be able to try foods from all around the world thanks to the 20 Outdoor Kitchens located throughout World Showcase. And while you are traveling through the pavilions, keep an eye out for Spike, the buzz-iest honeybee at Disney World! As part of Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration, a springtime scavenger hunt starring Spike, Guests will be able to spot this friendly bee all throughout World Showcase.

It may be chilly outside now, but a hint of spring is in the air as EPCOT prepares for the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival beginning March 3, 2021, at Walt Disney World Resort. With garden-fresh cuisines, creative gardens and unforgettable topiaries, this vibrant festival combines the freshest flowers and flavors from around the world.
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.
With more than 20 delectable stops, World Showcase will play host to the festival’s Outdoor Kitchens and other food & beverage locations, offering a smorgasbord of flavors and beverages.
Gardeners of all ages will be invited to participate in Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration – a springtime scavenger hunt starring Spike, the buzzzz-iest honeybee at Walt Disney World. And, guests will “bee” on the lookout for festival-specific merchandise throughout the park.
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. Remember to check for Disney Resort package and hotel offers for your travel dates!
