These activities are not only fun but also educational, as they teach kids about gardening and nature. In addition to these fan-favorite activities, the 2023 festival also brings a new activity for kids called Blossoms of Fragrance, located in World Celebration. This interactive exhibit allows kids to explore their sense of smell by identifying and matching different fragrances. With these engaging activities, the EPCOT® Flower and Garden Festival is the perfect place to bring your little ones for a day of fun and learning.
Tips for attending the Festival
Attending the EPCOT® Flower and Garden Festival can be a magical and memorable experience, but it’s important to plan ahead to make the most of your visit. One of the best tips for attending the festival is to arrive early in the day to beat the crowds and have ample time to explore. It’s also a good idea to plan which attractions you want to visit ahead of time to avoid getting overwhelmed by the sheer size of the festival. You can do this by using the Disney Genie Service and check if some Lightning Lane entrances are offered through Disney Genie+ service. Other Lightning Lane entrances may be purchased individually (á la carte). You can buy either or both options! To navigate the crowds and lines, consider visiting the festival during the weekdays or in the evenings, when crowds tend to be smaller. Finally, don’t forget to sample the delicious food and drinks on offer throughout the festival. Some of the best options can be found at the outdoor kitchens in the World Showcase area, so be sure to make time to explore this section of the festival. By following these tips, you can have a fun, stress-free, and delicious experience at the EPCOT® Flower and Garden Festival.
