PHOTOS: Look INSIDE the 2023 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival Passport

The big day has arrived!

2023 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival

The 2023 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival has officially kicked off in Disney World and we’re here to show you everything there is to do! We’re excited to try out all of the new and returning eats, see the character topiaries, and experience all that the festival has to offer. So how do you keep track of what’s happening at the festival? We’ve got a first look at this year’s festival passport!

When you enter EPCOT, you’ll be able to pick up this special festival passport, which is a booklet that acts as your guide to the festival. We grabbed a copy of the passport when we walked into the park and the cover is just as vibrant as the festival! It’s giving strong citrus vibes, with shades of green, orange, and yellow, and a bouquet of fruit, flowers, and veggies exploding from behind the logo.

Let’s take a look inside the passport! First, you’ll be greeted by the welcome page. This goes over what information you can find inside your passport, and includes a page telling you about different tours you can take throughout the festival, both guided and self-guided. The English Tea Garden in the United Kingdom Pavilion is a can’t-miss!

Next up are the different activities and attractions for kids that are unique to the festival. There are two different scavenger hunts as well as other activity areas to keep them entertained while you’re snacking your way from food kitchen to food kitchen.

Overview of activities

Your festival passport will also tell you what topiaries you’ll see and where to find them. It’s easy to get caught up in all of the festival attractions that you just might miss them, so this is extremely helpful for finding your favorite characters.

It wouldn’t be a Flower and Garden Festival without the gardens! These pages will tell you what types of gardens you can find throughout EPCOT.

Looking to get some shopping done? There are several collections available during the Flower and Garden Festival and this merchandise page will tell you where to find them. If you love Orange Bird, get your wallet ready!

If you love live music you don’t want to skip the Garden Rocks Concert Series. Held at the America Gardens Theatre, there are three shows on concert nights and you can scan the QR code to see which artists are coming (or check out our page here!). This page also tells you about the Festival Gift Cards. These are a great way to budget because it’s easy to run up a hefty sum visiting the food kitchens! Gift cards are a handy way to set a limit (although they are reloadable), plus they come with a wristband for easy access. Lastly, this page has the key for the food kitchen guide, which means …

It’s time to look at the food kitchen pages! Every food kitchen is listed along with where you can find it, what items they have, and what the ingredients are. Some include pictures and fun facts too! The first page has the specialty Joffrey’s drinks for the festival as well as the offerings at Connections Cafe and Eatery.
