PHOTOS & VIDEOS: The Ultimate Guide to the 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival

Welcome to the 2022 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! The 2022 Festival of the Arts just ended, and now it’s time for some blooming flowers and tasty eats!

Welcome to the 2022 Flower and Garden Festival!

The festival is set to run all the way through July 4th, 2022 and we’re checking out ALL the new and returning merchandise, eats, topiaries, and more as the festival kicks off, so come along with us at the Flower & Garden Festival today!

Let’s take a look at this year’s Flower & Garden Festival!

EPCOT opened bright and early at 8:30AM this morning, so we arrived a few minutes early to be sure that we were there when it all began. The first day of a festival tends to be pretty busy with crowds, but we were surprised to find that there weren’t any lines to scan in at the entrance when we got there.

We did stumble upon a larger group of people waiting to be fully let into the park near Spaceship Earth though.

But, we didn’t mind waiting around because it gave us plenty of time to take in all the new decorations including the Goofy Topiary at the entrance!

We also picked up a Festival Passport which features details on all the eats and drinks and details on merchandise and activities.

EPCOT Flower & Garden Activities

Aside from eating and drinking, there’s quite a few other activities to busy yourself with during the day including the returning scavenger hunt — Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration!

You can pick up a scavenger hunt map for $9.99 (which is a bit of a price increase compared to last year) at select EPCOT merchandise locations and search for Spike The Bee in each EPCOT World Showcase pavilion to win a prize.

EPCOT Flower & Garden Topiaries

This year, the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival features 24 topiary displays that can be found throughout the entire park — here’s where you can find them!

At the main entrance, you can find goofy celebrating the festival AND Disney World’s 50th Anniversary. This is a great photo op to get when you first walk into the park!

EPCOT Flower & Garden Merchandise

In the mood to do some shopping? Well, Disney has released FIVE different collections for the Flower & Garden Festival. But, you might want to be prepared to face crowds when you’re shopping — we had to wait in a line to get into Port of Entry and World Traveler was packed with people first thing in the morning.

Orangebird

Orange Bird is here with some new (and VERY popular) merchandise items, including a new Dooney & Bourke purse collection that features a green background and Orange Bird doing some citrus gardening. There is a tote, a crossbody, and a satchel available.

Figment Garden — Annual Passholders

Of course, it wouldn’t be at an EPCOT festival without some new Figment merchandise too! There’s an entire Annual Passholder line dedicated to the purple dragon and you can find everything from sweatshirts…
