What We Ate (And Saw) At The Flower & Garden Festival At Epcot

We're back from a fabulous stay at Walt Disney World. As always, we had the best time and did a bunch of different activities. 

One of the first things we did was head over to the Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot. We were impressed with all the gorgeous topiaries and food offered. There's over 15 booths and special merchandise available for purchase, plus vibrant flowers everywhere. 

As I mentioned, the topiaries are gorgeous. They're scattered throughout the park. 

The food booths are located in various countries and at the front of the World Showcase in Epcot. 

Yes, there's booze as well but we just stuck with the food.

At the France booth we got the Croissant with goat cheese, herbs, and roasted garlic. I wasn't sure if I liked goat cheese and discovered I did. The croissant was fresh and the flavors delicious. I recommend this one for sure!

We also got the caramelized beignet and oh my gosh, yum. I was sorry I had to share with the kids:

The Beauty & the Beast topiaries are in France and are popular so there will probably be a line to take a photo with them:

In Morocco, we stopped off at the Tangerine Cafe booth:

We got the Hummus Trio and I thought it was a great deal for like $6. You got 3 different hummus flavors: traditional, beet, and avocado. The avocado one was the winner!

The Japan booth was our absolute favorite. Why?

Well, there's this thing called FRUSHI and it was incredible. It's made with strawberry, pineapple, & lychee wrapped with sweet rice and pink soy. It was served with whipped cream & raspberry puree to dip it in. I loved it so much that I went back and got more:

I do not like seafood, but the kids do, so they got the Hanami Sushi which was lemon cured salmon, soy marinated tuna, and cured mackarel. They gobbled it right up and ordered it again on another night.

More toparies!

The Brunchcot Booth was another hit:

We got the avocado toast which was gobbled down quickly:

The Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites also had a delectable flavor:

We washed it all down with a Froot Loop shake. It tasted like the milk left after you finish all the Froot Loops. The only thing that was icky was that the cereal on top got soggy. We tried to eat them all but some slipped through so you'd be left with mush. 

We stopped by the Farmer's Feast booth next:

The tomato and red onion panzanella made us feel better since we felt like we were eating lots of junk, ha. 

I was intrigued by the sweet cream brulee. It almost tasted like the regular one, but with a hint of sweet corn:

The Flower & Garden Festival has many gorgeous displays:

Who else loves Figment?

Everything is beautiful:

Makes me wish I could grow stuff:

Were we done eating? No! Off to Florida Fresh!

I had to try the strawberry shortcake. It was okay. The bread was a little rough but the strawberries were tasty:

The Grilled Street Corn on the Cob is a must! Amazing flavors! 

Natalie made a friend as we ate:

The final item we got was the violet lemonade. It was refreshing on the ultra hot day. And pretty! Oh, and you can eat the flowers that are on all the dishes. They don't really taste like much though.

I adored this Miss Piggy & Kermit topiary:

This was neat in Japan:

The Flower & Garden Festival lasts until July 5th so you still have time to check it out! If you go, let me know what your favorite topiary was and if you also love the frushi. 

Have you ever been to this festival before? If you can't make this one, the Food & Wine festival is next, and yup, we've been to that one as well. I prefer this one though since the flowers are beautiful and I liked the food better. (Frushi! Avocado Toast! Grilled corn on the cob! Goat Cheese croissant!)


  1. I've always wanted to go to the Flower and Garden festival. I love the Muppets topiary!

  2. I would definitely visit the Flower & Garden Festival if I were at Walt Disney World! The food looks really delicious too! The Fried Cinnamon Roll bites - yum!

  3. I'm embarrassed to admit that we rarely eat when we go to Epcot. The kids are too busy running us from ride to ride. I think I have to take an adult only trip one day to really enjoy it all.

  4. Honestly, I didn't expect the food there to be so good!!! I was drooling whilst reading this. The caramelized beignet sounds gorgeous, I've never had a beignet before and didn't know they came in different flavours. And the cinnamon bites, OMG!!!!

  5. What an amazing event! Just beautiful! Out of all of WDW’s events, this festival is the one I want to attend!

  6. I enjoyed reading about all the different food and topiaries you saw. I have never been to this festival before, but it sounds like a lot of fun.

  7. It has been so long since I’ve been to Disney. I want to take my son before he graduates high school. I think it would be cool to see the topiary and flowers.

  8. What an amazing day! Sooo much delicious food, that croissant looks tasty!

  9. That looks like a really wonderful day! I really love your daughter’s dress. Those foods looks absolutely delicious and tasty!

  10. OMG! This is my type of festival! Everything around is gorgeous and the food is so inviting!

  11. I would love to go to this! My husband is from Florida and we've been talking about going to Epcot just the 2 of us. We both would love to see all the flower displays.

  12. I live in florida and have never been to this Festival. It sounds so much fun also the food is so inviting.

  13. I loved reading about your experience at the Flower Garden and seeing the beautiful photos of the flowers and delicious food! It's always a delight to explore vibrant gardens and indulge in tasty treats. Thank you for sharing your adventures and giving us a glimpse into this delightful outing. It sounds like a perfect day filled with beauty and gastronomic delights.

  20. My family loves EPCOT! We've been there twice during the Flower & Garden Festival & it's so wonderful.

  21. I'd love to experience the gorgeous gardens and all the creative eats and drinks in Epcot

  22. A beautiful, fresh and lovely garden, matching the girl's dress. Also with the food. You and your family will definitely enjoy it.

  23. I've been a couple times to flower garden season at the Epcot Center! You've just reminded me how awesome it is!

  24. The Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot is one of my favorite events at Walt Disney World, and it's great to hear you enjoyed it as much as I always do!

  25. I love Epcot but never been to any such events there. The beignet , the creme brulee, and the frushi look and sound amazing.. (as do the rest of the food).. and the topiaries are so very pretty (i keep hoping i can grow things better than i do too!) As always Natalie's dress is perfect for the occasion!

  26. Natalie's flowery pastel dress paired beautifully with the vibrantly colored dishes. The gorgeous topiaries added a touch of elegance and charm to the garden festival, surely making the experience truly magical.

    1. Sorry, this was me! Forgot to change the "Comment as" from Anon.

  27. I have always wanted to visit Epcot during this festival. Thanks for letting me live vicariously through you!
