New Additions Coming to the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, Sprouting March 1

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

There is nothing lovelier than springtime at Walt Disney World! The days get longer, the weather warms up, and colorful flowers bloom across the landscape. And one of the best places to experience spring for yourself is at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Beginning March 1 and continuing through July 5, this stunning festival features alluring gardens, whimsical topiaries, lively entertainment, beautiful merchandise and delightfully fresh cuisine.

Today, I have exciting news to share. For the first time, topiaries of Mirabel, Antonio, Isabela and Luisa from Disney’s “Encanto” will make a grand appearance at the festival. Located near the EPCOT main entrance, these new topiaries are sure to be a must-do photo moment to mark your visit. (But remember: We don’t talk about Bruno.)

And that’s not all. A new Princess Tiana topiary will grace
The American Adventure. Plus, we also have returning favorites such as Snow
White & the Seven Dwarfs; Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook and Tick
Tock Croc; Figment; Anna and Elsa; and more.

The popular Garden Rocks Concert Series is back, featuring favorite tunes at the America Gardens Theatre. More details about the musical lineup will be released soon on the Disney Parks Blog.

Treat from the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

Get your taste buds ready; you’re in for a treat! More than 15 Outdoor Kitchens will offer specialty menus of scrumptious cuisine and beverages. One of my favorites is The Citrus Blossom which will move to a new location at Odyssey. With fresh new menu items, you’ll want to sample all the mouth-watering delights.

Of course, you can commemorate your visit with official ‘70’s
inspired Orange Bird merchandise, including apparel, headwear, drinkware and
much more.

Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration will have people abuzz again. This springtime scavenger hunt is fun for all ages. Follow Spike the Bee on his pollination trail, where he will “bee” busy collecting nectar and pollinating gardens at EPCOT. Once you find him in each garden on your map, add the corresponding sticker of the plant he is visiting.

On the bridge to World Showcase, you can enjoy the sights
and scents of spring with Blossoms of Fragrance presented by Scentsy.
Surrounded by vibrant butterfly topiaries, guests will be invited to follow
their noses to six scent stations—to form lasting memories with the help of
unforgettable aromas.

To experience the EPCOT International Flower & Garden
Festival, you must have both valid admission and a park reservation for EPCOT
on the same date. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more details!  

That's all folks!
