Flower and garden festival 2019 menu


One of the bigger festivals at Epcot will be starting soon, the International Flower and Garden Festival! This is one of the best festivals at Walt Disney World, especially if you love food! Food makes up a good portion of what you experience during the festival. If you are down during this time, it is a must see! There is a lot to see and do, which will keep you busy for quite some time. The kickoff day for this festival is set for March 6th! Along with concert series, Garden Rocks, there are also vast food options. The vendors open at 11am each morning and runs until 9pm and are spread out throughout the park. You will need a park ticket to get in as this is within Epcot.

Disney has done a great job to provide a variety of food options to please the entire family! They have even released the International Flower and Garden festival 2019 menu! This allows you can look ahead and find the things that you know you want to try. They have anything from appetizers to delicious desserts, and everything in between. The menus are not only food but driniks as well! If you love coffee, Joffery’s has even added a couple of specialty drinks this year. And if you are 21+ years old, there are also a lot more alcohol options as well. This gives new meaning to eating around the world. Now, without further ado, the menus!

What about the kids

There are a lot of kid-friendly options for the little ones as well as special areas. For the kids, each area has some activities as well as topiary to draw their attention. There are interactive play areas for kids with informational areas spread out. This festival has something for everyone; whether food, music or activities. One of the best activities to visit after eating is the butterfly house. The butterfly house is an area that is home to hundreds of butterflies with a garden inside. This provides a break for the kids while getting foods from around the world. I have made sure to include a key for kid friendly options for food.

Conclusion

The Flower and Garden festival 2019 menu looks like it will have plenty of variety. There is an outstanding number of options to satisfy almost everyone’s palate. It can be difficult to narrow down what you definitely want to try. Using the menus, you can decide which is a must hit and which could be skipped. The citrus poached salmon at the Flavor Full Kitchen sounds delicious and will be on a must try list! The drink selection, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, is extensive. Moreover, they are set within themes based on the region. This could be based on country or twists on old favorites So make sure to explore each area. There seems to always be something new to experience

I would suggest taking time out of several days to go. As this will allow you to try more of the foods without feeling completely overwhelmed. It can be a lot to take in but slowing down the pace helps. From experience, it is best to take your time and not rush. There are also dining packages that are available, such as with the Garden Rocks concerts. Some of the foods actually count towards snack credits as well. So if you have a dining plan, you can use some of the leftover snacks here. The best thing to do is plan ahead, at least a little bit to get the most out of your day. Each year, disney expands and improves on the festivals. I can’t wait to experience this first hand!

If you are going or were going to be there, what would be your go-to to try?
