It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival is officially underway. It started late last week, on February 28, and runs through May 28, 2018. Disney has nearly eliminated the need to move most of the food booths around World Showcase Lagoon throughout the year, as Food & Wine rolls into the Festival of the Holidays runs into Festival of the Arts runs into Flower & Garden. But like many others, for me it’s this “last” festival of the season, Flower & Garden, with its colors and tastes and promise of spring, that tops them all.
This year, Flower & Garden hosts a very doable 15 kitchens. The options aren’t quite as pretty as those at Festival of the Arts – but the price tags aren’t as steep either. So as you roam World Showcase photographing the gorgeous topiaries and coaxing butterflies to land on you, you’ll be able to sample plenty of the goods for fairly reasonable prices.
Before I dig into the various options, perhaps it would help your planning to have every menu board at your fingertips….so without further ado:
