Flower & Garden Festival 2018

Now that Flower & Garden Festival is coming to a close, I figured I would share my opinion on the event and all of the food & drink we tried this year as well as a crap ton of pictures I took of the topiaries and event in general!

Flower & Garden Festival is my favorite version of Epcot. So much so that I get really sad when it’s over. The park is so pretty, so bright and colorful and when it goes away it’s just kind of bleh. Don’t get me wrong I love Epcot year round but there is just something special about Flower & Garden.

We only really splurged one day to try all the food we wanted, which really wasn’t even that much. Here is what we tried:

The Honey Tandoori Chicken Flatbread with White Cheddar Cheese, charred vegetables, Clover Honey Sour Cream and Micro Watercress was my favorite food item of the event. It was so delicious. This item was found at the Honey Bee-Stro.

Next was the Toasted Pretzel Bread topped with Black Forest Ham & Melted Gruyère Cheese from the Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market in Germany. I really liked this also and I don’t even like ham. It was incredibly simple but super tasty. [Sorry for the really crappy pictures, I was still learning my new lens on my camera.. ]

The last food item we tried was the Fried Chicken Dumplings with a Peanut Sauce from the Lotus House booth in China. These were basic but I really liked them.

Now onto the drinks!

First up, the beer flight from the Northern Bloom booth in Canada. These were all amazing. Highly suggest it.

Next up the Tiger Lilly Sangria from the Jardin de Fiestas booth in Mexico.  This was interesting, not bad, just interesting. It was kind of spicy?.. I really can’t explain it. I still enjoyed it though!

Last but not least, the famous Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade from Pineapple Promenade. It’s one of the most delicious drink I’ve had in a long time. I had it for the first time last year and couldn’t wait to have it again this year!

That was it for the items we tried at the Flower and Garden Festival this year. Now let’s get to my photos of the event. All of the beautiful topiaries around the park were amazing. Bravo to the Disney crew responsible for these.

You still have some time to enjoy this event but not much! The last day of Flower & Garden is Monday, May 28th! Go enjoy Epcot while it’s at its prettiest!
