What is Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2023?


The Disney Flower and Garden Festival is an annual event that takes place in EPCOT park and has been in bloom since 1994. Every year, the park is bursting with color and incredible sculptures made from hundreds and thousands of different types of flowers. It marks as one of the highlights of visiting Walt Disney World in the spring.

This Epcot Garden Festival takes a full year and about 400 Walt Disney World cast members to prepare for.  All of this hard work for the 120-day Flower and Garden Festival. For this reason the Epcot Flower and Garden 2023 dates will all be similar to years in the past.

In outcome, there are about 30-million blooms, 240 floating flower planters, 700 gardens, almost 100 incredible Disney character topiaries, 30 flower towers, and a butterfly tapestry of flowers. This is what creates a spectacular spring.
