If the flowers, gardens, and food haven’t caught you attention there is always the Festival Center, open Friday – Sunday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., where guest are able to take part complimentary seminars ranging from backyard gardening to helping the environment along with different displays constantly changing during the run of the festival.
No festival would be complete without merchandise to show everyone you were there and this year they have gone above and beyond for Flower & Garden!
We haven’t even touched on the Garden Rocks Concert Series with performances at the America Gardens Theatre at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival and are included with Epcot admission.

Something else new for this year, the EGGstravaganza “egg” search throughout World Showcase is expanded for the full 90 days of the festival to give guest plenty of time to hunt over and over again.
EGGstravganza maps are $5.99 each and available at multiple locations throughout Epcot but once completed you do get a choice of 1 of 12 different “eggs” as a souvenir.
Now make sure you get out to the festival in the next few weeks because, once spring fully blooms, and the heat kicks in many of the flowers will be changed out so these beautiful views will change to a different beautiful view.
