It feels like we’ve been waiting forever, but Disney has finally announced the dates for this year’s EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. This year, you can come to see EPCOT in bloom, marvel at topiaries, and sup at Outdoor Kitchens from March 1 to July 5, 2023.
There’s no news yet about the Garden Rocks Concert Series schedule, Outdoor Kitchen lineup and menus, or most other specifics. Even the merchandise page on Disney’s site says “Check back later for updates”. (When it says something else, we’ll post those updates here.)
Fortunately, a little more news came with the announcement on the Disney Parks Blog.
This year’s Festival will feature brand new topiaries of Mirabel, Antonio, Isabela and Luisa from Disney’s “Encanto”. They’ll be located right near the main entrance, making them easy to find. (Why no Bruno? We don’t talk about Bruno.) And a new Princess Tiana topiary will be found at the American Adventure.
Although we don’t have a show schedule, we do know that the Garden Rocks Concert Series will be back, along with Spike the Bee’s Pollen-Nation Exploration scavenger hunt, and over 15 Outdoor Festival Kitchens.
While we wait for more information, feel free to take a spin through some of last year’s coverage, as many Festival features are similar from year to year.
