7 Easy Tips for the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

I’ve done the Epcot Egg-stravaganza activity before, and it’s a pretty cool way to discover Epcot. It’s so much fun being able to explore World Showcase at the park in a very unique way.

I thought it would be great to give you some basics tips on how to maximize your time at the festival.

1. Go During the Weekdays

Anyone visiting Walt Disney World on a regular day knows that going at the right time is extremely important. This concept is even more important during special events and holidays.

That’s why I recommend attending the Flower & Garden Festival during the weekday (Monday through Thursday) in order to optimize your international globe hopping experience at Epcot.

2. Get there Early

We’ve all heard the saying…

“the early bird catches the wormyou snooze, you lose”

…so on and so on.

It’s the classic tip for any theme park visitor, especially any Disney guest.

Coming early to the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival will give you a chance to pace yourself by allowing you to enjoy the festival attractions in both Future World and World Showcase.

3. Attend the Tours

There’s no better way to enjoy the event than attending the amazing educational garden tours, which are mostly free or budget friendly.

4. Grab a Garden Passport

The passport is a pamphlet that allows you to personalize it with your name, country, date issued, and date of completion.

It also includes the locations of the topiaries, the outdoor kitchen offerings, merchandise options, and concert information. 

Stickers are also included for you to mark off which kitchen you’ve visited.

5. Buy a Disney Wristlet Gift Card

For the typical pro foodie, savoring the many samples is a must.

Buying the wristlet gift card will also prevent any unexpected credit card swiping if you’re a bit tipsy from the adult libations.

6. Split the Cost

Going with a friend or two or three always turns an already great journey into one of epicness!

Just ask my friends.

It also means that if you’re on a budget and down for sharing, then you can really try most of the dishes without leaving the park financially wounded.

7. Book Your Disney Reservations ASAP

FastPasses to the hottest attractions to any of the newest rides such as the Frozen Ever After at Epcot need to be booked like yesterday once they return!

Trust me, you will thank me later for this.

Hipster Power Tip: When choosing FastPasses for Epcot be sure to choose at least one of the following attractions due to popularity: Frozen Ever After, Soarin Around the World, or Test Track.

In addition to booking your FastPasses, you’ll want to make other reservations early too.

Walt Disney World is the top tourist destinations in the world. This is an advantage for you, because you will never have to think of what to do while taking your solo trip.

Final Thoughts

The Epcot Egg-stravaganza takes place during the Flower and Garden Festival.

The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival  has definitely blossomed into its own major festival at Walt Disney World. It’s one of the Epcot festivals that you don’t want to miss out on this year.
