The 2021 EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival runs from March 3 – July 5, 2021. Here are the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival Top 10 menu items for this year.
We made our way to EPCOT to experience this year’s Flower and Garden festival. This annual event showcases the season’s freshest ingredients and flavors throughout the menus of 19 Outdoor Kitchens. Guests will enjoy beautiful gardens with seating, plus over 20 topiaries of classic Disney characters designed by Disney Horticulturists.
One of my favorite aspects of this festival is learning how Disney sources food and their focus on sustainable ingredients. Many of the fish, herbs, and flowers used in these recipes are grown on Disney property. As an added bonus, everything served on festival plates is edible (even the flowers!).
Today, I am sharing my list of Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival Top 10 menu items.
