The Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot

Walt Disney World’s Flower & Garden Festival takes place every year at Epcot. From early March until late May, the Disney Festival takes place. The International Flower and Garden Festival first took place in 1994, however in 2015, numerous modifications were made.


The Epcot festival has a lot of new topiaries, butterfly gardens, and the Garden Rocks Concert series. More days were added to the flower and garden festival each year as these additions were made.


Lotus House is a place where you may relax and

Lotus House is the place to go for Chinese cuisine during Epcot’s flower and garden festival. It is not to be confused with Lotus Cafe, a fast service counter. This is also found in the China Pavilion.

Frushi and Beijing Strawberries were also quite popular. The two Asian cuisine samples were a treat for the Disney crowd’s taste buds!

  6. Sesame seeds may be added if desired.
  7. Dip strawberries in the sugar mixture rapidly, letting extra to flow off the strawberry’s tip.
