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!

Oh thank you for posting!!!

This is great news! We are going in May (usually go in October) and were so excited to be there for Flower/Garden. We were afraid they'd cancel it.

Actually the fun part will be to visit on the 3 days of the year that no festival is going on because they are transitioning between them.

never mind they just announced a new festival.

You will always have a few down days unless they build permanent booths

Well it was bound to happen, Year round festivals confirmed.

Not quite. Still awaiting the announcement of Mickey’s International Taste of Summertime Grilling and Garden Festival.

While true and said tongue-in-cheek, to be fair: the pandemic made WDW decide to start F&W when they re-opened in the Summer, and they're extending Garden to a time when they might get back to full capacity. Also, the festivals are cut-back versions with less booths and ancillary activities and promoted as "A Taste of...".

For reference....

Also, I thought Epcot purposely limited the festivals to under some specific number (87? 90?) because then the "temporary" booths become "permanent structures" requiring some sort of different permitting or tax classification? <shrug>

That was my understanding as well that the booths could only be up for a set time and then had to be reinstalled with new inspections for the next period.

Festival of the holidays ends 12/21? Weird. Usually 12/30.
