Kid-Approved Activities at Flower & Garden Festival

Of all the Epcot festivals, the Flower & Garden Festival is probably the most kid-friendly! With all the fun character topiaries, kid-approved menu items, and exhibits even the youngest guests will have a great time!

Many of these activities are already listed throughout this guide, but here are a few more! Let’s take a look:

Gardeners of all ages are invited to participate in a springtime scavenger hunt starring Spike, the buzziest honey bee at Disney World. Embark on a search for Spike’s best blooms as he pollinates flower beds across Epcot!

Begin this botanical-happy hunt by purchasing a map at Port of Entry. Next, buzz through the World Showcase in search of flowers featuring the big bee himself, then return your completed map to Port of Entry for a special surprise.

Maps are $9.99 (Annual Passholder discounts do apply) and are only available while supplies last.

Break out the bunny ears! From March 27 through April 12 (while supplies last), the “hoppy-est place on Earth” welcomes rabbits of all ages to Egg-stravaganza, a popular scavenger hunt that has everyone scampering around World Showcase in search of Disney character-themed eggs.

Prepare to crack the case of the oversized orbs by purchasing a map. Maps can be found at Disney Traders, Pin Central, and World Traveler. Next, hunt high and low for hidden eggs featuring your fave Disney peeps and return the completed map to Disney Traders for a surprise.

Maps are $9.99 (Annual Passholder discounts do apply) and are only available while supplies last. Read more about this hunt HERE and see the prizes HERE.

  1. What kind of impact will the construction have on the festival? This will be my first time there for the festival and I was thinking about entering through the International Gateway and pretty much staying in the World Showcase. Will I miss a lot more than construction?

    • It’s just a bunch of walls in what is now called Future World. You will avoid it in World Showcase, but it’s not really that big of a deal. You just can’t easily cross from East to West in Future World
