What You Need to Know About All Epcot Festivals

Epcot Festival of the Arts | magicintheplanning.comAll Epcot Festivals feature food and beverage booths throughout the park. You will find temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent booths throughout Epcot that feature exclusive menu items for each festival. Menus are released shortly before each festival and typically offer unique food and drink options that aren’t available at any other time of the year.

Typically, there is a feature show at America Gardens Theatre for each of the festivals, and each show typically has an associated dining package that guarantees admission. (But due to popularity, arriving early may still be your best bet at getting a good seat!)

Every festival offers unique entertainment, activities, and even merchandise throughout the park. Some activities are free, while others do require an additional fee. One activity to take note of is a paid scavenger hunt. Maps can be purchased (usually less than $10), and guests then search the park for items. Your completed map can be exchanged for a small treat or item.


Festival Tips and Tricks

Spaceship Earth in Epcot | magicintheplanning.comEpcot festivals are quite popular with the locals, which means that evenings and weekends will be busy. If you want to avoid the crowds, plan to visit Epcot during the week and make the most of your daytime hours. You may also want to avoid the first and last weekends of the event as these tend to be more crowded.

Also, keep in mind that some guests may engage in a bit more alcohol consumption, especially during the Food & Wine Festival, as many of the booths offer unique drinks and wine tastings. For some, this may not be a big deal, but for families traveling with younger children, it may be something you want to consider.

Garden Rocks Concert Series

The Garden Rocks Concert Series is a highlight of the Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot. From February 28 onwards, this concert series entertains visitors throughout the festival.
