Taste of Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2021

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. Please click my disclosure policy to learn more.

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is an annual festival hosted at Epcot that continues the Epcot tradition of offering lots of yummy food, a beautiful setting, and additional entertainment (Updated 2/17/2021).

The festivals at Epcot continue to grow in scale each year, with most of the year now containing some sort of festival. These festivals have become immensely popular and are huge draws for Disney, so I would expect this trend to continue.

This is a bit of an epic post. I have included as many details about the International Flower and Garden Festival that I could come up with. This includes the menu for the Outdoor Kitchens, the concert list, and of course, lots of pictures.

So grab a snack and settle in to learn all about this year’s International Flower and Garden Festival.

As usual, I have information in here that will fit the needs of my gluten free readers as well as people with no food restrictions.

Epcot Flower and Garden 2021 Dates

This year the International Flower and Garden Festival will run from March 3, 2021 through July 5, 2021. While the length of Flower and Garden Festival has expanded over the past few years, this is the longest ever!

Gardens in Canada Pavilion

Disney does keep shifting the dates slightly each year, which makes it more challenging to predict when booking your trip a year in advance. If going to Flower and Garden is a priority for you, I would suggest that you stick with a trip between mid-March through mid-May. This should guarantee that your trip falls within the Festival dates.

International Flower and Garden Festival Experience

As with the other festivals held ever since the pandemic happened, this year Flower and Garden is being touted as Taste of Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.

What this means is that the festival has some eliminated and modified experiences due to the health and safety precautions being taken at the Disney parks.

By far, the highlights of the Flower and Garden Festival are the food booths, the topiaries scattered around the park, and the extra flowers that are planted everywhere. Flower and Garden really is a feast for the stomach and the eyes, it is visually impressive.

But there is so much more involved in Flower and Garden, and we will explore it all in this guide.

Outdoor Kitchens

As I’m sure you’ve gathered if you read any of my previous posts that involve food, I really like to eat. One could say I’m passionate about it, and Doug is right in the same boat. Clearly, this leads us to heavily favor the outdoor kitchens when we attend any festival.

Disney continues to expand the Outdoor Kitchen offerings. The downside to this is that there are so many options to choose from, it is really impossible for most normal people to try everything they want. That would be a pricey and time consuming proposition.

Everyone should research the menus when they are released and identify which offerings to prioritize. This will ensure you are able to try everything you want.

This is especially important if you are not on the dining plan and trying not to spend a fortune. If you are on any of the Disney Dining Plans I highly recommend that you use your snack credits at the Festival booths. It is a great value for your snack credits.

Gluten-Free Flower and Garden Festival 2021

Disney labels which booth foods are considered to be Gluten Free, which certainly makes it so much easier. However, there are usually additional foods which are gluten free but not labeled as such.

This is because they have ingredients that come from an outside source who has not provided information on cross-contamination risks.

Disney will not mark these as gluten-free since they can’t be 100% certain, but you can always ask about ingredients in items at each of the booths.

Sometimes, the Cast Member simply needs to remove an ingredient from the menu item and it will be gluten-free. For example, one year I was able to have the delicious pork taco without the tortilla. It turned out to be one of my favorite booth items of the festival.

Always make a point of asking if you think a menu item can be made to accommodate your dietary needs.

Pork Taco without tortilla

You know your body best and what it will tolerate. I know that I can safely eat foods as long as they don’t have a direct source of gluten in the ingredients, so this opens up more options at the Festivals.

All of the booths have ingredient lists, so if you suspect that something will be safe for you to eat, just go ahead and ask.

I’ve also written a full review of the gluten free food options at 2019’s Flower and Garden Festival. A lot of those menu items are repeated every year so you can get pictures and thoughts about them.

At a glance, it does seem like there are several menu items which are not labeled gluten free but could potentially be. I will continue to look into that and update the menus. Remember, in the menus, things I’ve put in bold italics are gluten free or can be made gluten free, even if they aren’t labeled.

Topiaries and Floral Displays

The Flower and Garden Festival is not just a feast for the belly, but one for the eyes as well. Park visitors will find topiaries and extra flowers all over Epcot during the Festival. I happen to love flowers and gardens (to look at anyway, I have a black thumb) so this Festival is right up my alley.

People who are lucky enough to go to Flower and Garden many times will notice that the topiaries are recycled year after year (and even make an appearance all dressed up at Christmas time!), but I’m still new enough that this doesn’t bother me yet.

Sure, I think that Disney should be a bit more proactive in creating new experiences for repeat guests, but if you can let that part go, it’s easy to just admire the different topiary vignettes scattered throughout Epcot. I have no idea how many there are, but pretty much every nook and cranny of the park has a topiary in it.

Also, make a point of exploring the topiaries again after dark. Most of the are given dramatic lighting schemes which enhance the after dark experience of the International Flower and Garden Festival. The picture at the lead of this post is perhaps one of my favorite nighttime pictures from the festival.

Flower and Garden Festival Menu 2021

The outdoor kitchens are without a doubt the biggest draw of any of the festivals, and the Flower and Garden Festival is no different.

Disney finally released the official menus, and there are a lot of new items.

For my gluten free readers, I bolded all of the menu items that are labeled as gluten-free officially by Disney. I also highlighted the menu items I’ve eaten after confirming they were gluten-free. These menu items are in bold italics.

I will say, there seem to be more gluten free options than normal. Partly, this is because some of the foods that were never labeled as gluten friendly by Disney, are now officially labeled.

For those items, please double check at the booth before you eat it.

Flower and Garden Festival Merchandise 2021

We are still waiting for details about the Flower and Garden Festival merchandise for 2021!

Garden Rocks Concert Series

Unfortunately, the Garden Rocks Concert Series is one of the things not included in Taste of Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2021. It’s another way that Disney avoids large crowds congregating in one spot.

Hopefully this will return in the future.

Tours, Exhibits, and Displays

Typically, the International Flower and Garden Festival also offers tours as a way to enhance your Festival experience. However, tours are not currently available.

But there are still some fun opportunities which are unique to the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival.

The Goodness Garden Butterfly House

This butterfly experience is sponsored by GoGo Squeeze. Disney describes it as follows:

View a kaleidoscope of butterflies up close, in all their extraordinary color. Learn about butterflies’ lifecycles and maybe even see one emerge from its chrysalis. Closes at dusk.

Disney Website

This activity is free of charge.

Health Full Trail Presented by AdventHealth

This is an outdoor kitchen and garden designed to inspire youthful energy and creativity. This activity in free of charge.

Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration

Unlike the previous two activities, this one is an upcharge experience. It will cost you $7.99 plus tax.

This is a spring time themed scavenger hunt for “gardeners of all ages”. Guests purchase a map and stickers at designated retail locations. Then you follow the clues to complete the scavenger hunt.

Once you fill in all the stickers, bring your map Disney Traders or World Traveler for a prize.

Eggstravaganza Scavenger Hunt

As you can see clearly from the name, this is another scavenger hunt that guests can participate in. This scavenger hunt leads you to decorative eggs themed to different Disney characters.

This one also costs $7.99 plus tax for your map and stickers. However, this one doesn’t start until March 19, not at the beginning of the Flower and Garden Festival.

But like the other scavenger hunt, once you complete your map, return it to select merchandise locations and collect your prize.

If you liked this post, Pin it for later!

  1. Thank you for your hard work! It would be neat if I could print the list of food. I am curious. Does Disney offer a special flower and garden map? Or do you just find these spots as you go. My best girlfriend and I are taking our first solo trip to Epcot in 10 days. So excited!

    1. I’ll keep that in mind and see if I can figure that out some day. But don’t worry, Disney has a booklet for each of the Festivals that lists all of the booths, their menus, and typically tells you the location as well. It’s not a map per se, but it will give you a clear enough idea of where the booth is. For Food and Wine they had a QR you could scan to get the information on your phone. I’m not going to lie though, I prefer the physical booklet. You both will have so much fun! Epcot during Flower and Garden is beautiful and delicious.
