Are you ready?! The dates for the 27th Epcot Flower and Garden Festival have been announced! This year’s event will take place for 90 days from March 4 through June 1.
This festival is known for its gorgeous topiaries and this year, there will be a brand new one themed around Remy from Ratatouille. This new topiary is the centerpiece of a new Ratatouille Garden which will be found in the France Pavilion. This new garden will be planted with veggies used in a ratatouille recipe. (Oh and it’s perfect timing to introduce a Remy topiary because Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will open at Walt Disney World in the summer of 2020!) Guests also will find favorite returning character topiaries including Snow White, Elsa and Anna, Belle and Beast, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Miss Piggy and Kermit.
Guests will also find a number of gardens of herbs and produce and discover how to grow their own healthful foods. There will be thousands of bedding plants a rainbow of color which will decorate the landscape around Future World and World Showcase, and dozens of Disney-crafted “flower towers”. Festive mini-gardens will be set afloat like floral pontoons on the Future World east and west lakes.
Another popular part of the festival are the Outdoor Kitchens with lots of tasty treats. And you won’t want to miss the Garden Rocks concert series with a number of favorite artists from the 60s until the early 2000s.
Children will enjoy the festival’s Play Garden and Family Play Zone and Guests of all ages will want to make sure to visit The Goodness Garden Butterfly House presented by GoGoSqueeZ. And the “How To” garden will return with clever tips for home gardeners.
