As much as we enjoy admiring a Disney topiary (or ten) and bopping along to the music during the Garden Rocks Concert Series, one of our absolute favorite parts of the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival each year is the seasonal food and beverage offerings at the many Outdoor Kitchens.
If you’re anything like us, you like combing through the Epcot Flower and Garden menus before you even get to the park, dreaming and scheming about your delicious plans for your visit. Well, you’re in luck because the Disney finally released them and oh boy, do they sound tasty.
So, stop and smell the roses (and the caramelized beignets over at the Fleur de Lys booth) as we dig into all the tempting offerings at Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2022. Updated March 14, 2023
Epcot Flower and Garden 2023 Food
Global marketplaces. Food studios. Holiday kitchens. Whatever they’re called, these food booths are often the highlight for many guests of Epcot’s popular seasonal festivals, serving global cuisine with of-the-moment flair.
For the park’s spring and summer soiree, Outdoor Kitchens dish up delightful eats and refreshing drinks inspired by the bounty of the seasons. Think fragrant florals, bright citrus and farm-fresh produce like tree-ripened fruits and veggies straight off the vine.
Of course, if you aren’t careful, all those dishes can really add up (and we don’t mean the calories). Thankfully, we have a few suggestions for keeping your travel budget in check:
Share to try more and spend less. With so many delectable dishes and drinks to try, choosing just a few can feel downright impossible. So, don’t! Team up with the rest of your family or a friend to tackle more menu offerings or go Dutch on an epic food-filled Disney date night.
Manage your budget with a wearable gift card. Worried that you might be tempted to spend more than you should? If they’re available, get one of the festival’s wearable gift cards and load it with what you can afford – then cut yourself off when the money is gone (that’s the hard part).
Sample the season with the Garden Graze food stroll. Rather leave the decision making to the experts? Tip toe through the tulips and into the tasty world of plant-based eats on Disney’s Garden Graze, a culinary scavenger hunt with a yummy (and free!) prize at the end.
