All the Magic Coming to the 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival
While the weather outside right now might not agree, it’s time to think warm thoughts. More specifically, warm and fuzzy thoughts about the 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival as Disney has just released all the magical details for this year’s Festival!
Kicking off on March 2, 2022 and running a whopping 125 days until July 4, 2022, the 2022 Flower & Garden Festival is not one you will want to miss! From bright and cherry blooms to great tunes and eats, there is something for every member of the family to create memories of a lifetime.
Let’s take a closer look at the new and returning options for this year’s Festival:
Iconic Disney Character Topiaries
Is it really the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival without those character topiaries?! This year is no exception as Walt Disney World’s Horticulture teams are already underway designing the all the topiary magic Guests will soon be snapping selfies in front of.
When Guests arrive at the main entrance to EPCOT, they will be greeted by an all-new topiary featuring Goofy with a birthday cake in honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary.
If you love the topiaries as much as I do, you’ll also want to pay close attention as you make your way around the World Showcase in the Germany Pavilion, There you will find new topiaries of the Seven Dwarfs accompanying Snow White.
Other fan favorite topiaries will also be returning for the 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival including Lumiere and Cogsworth in the France Pavilion and Pumbaa and Timon near Imagination!
All-New “Fragrant Garden” by Scentsy
Sponsored by Scentsy, Guests are invited to treat their senses to an all new experience at the 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival with the Fragrant Garden.
The Fragrant Garden will feature vibrant butterfly topiaries where Guests can treat their noses to six scent stations with the following aromas: floral, fruity, citrus, spice, woods, and fresh. Ahhhhh! I can smell it now!
Staying Healthy and Relaxed at the 2022 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival
The entire family is invited over to the Health Full Trail presented by AdventHealth to discover ways to stay healthy by having fun.
If you are looking for some moments of zen, check out Outdoor Escapes Presented by OFF Repellents. The Outdoor Escapes area features a relaxing environment and will teach Guests how to re-create their own back at home.
For even some more relaxation, one of my favorite things to do is spend some time in Bambi’s Butterfly House featuring a menagerie of butterflies showing off their jaw dropping beauty and colors.
Garden Rocks Concert Series
Ready to rock in the garden? Then, you will definitely want to head over to the America Gardens Theater for the Garden Rocks Concert Series featuring internationally recognized artists!
