Walt Disney World has released Outdoor Kitchen food booth menus for the 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, the park’s big spring and early summer celebration. This post previews new & returning savory snacks, decadent desserts, and souvenir sippers that are coming to the event.
This year, the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival runs from March 2 through July 4, 2022 at Walt Disney World. The Outdoor Kitchens are all located throughout the World Showcase pavilions and portions of the new neighborhoods of Future World, just like the Food Studios before them. These food booths open each day from park opening until park closing.
For the most part, the 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival recycles booths used by Festival of the Arts, which just concluded its winter run. It’s smaller slate than the Epcot Food & Wine Festival, the park’s “flagship” culinary event, but an expansion of both Festival of the Holidays and Arts, largely because it runs longer and occurs during a busier time of year. (That’s right–March and April will be even busier than the already-packed winter months!) These Outdoor Kitchens showcase fresh and farm-to-table ingredients, fitting the vibe of Flower & Garden Festival.
As you eat your way through the 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, don’t forget to pick up a Festival Passport to participate in Garden Graze, a returning food stroll featuring five delicious dishes from various Outdoor Kitchens. Get a stamp in your passport after you’ve purchased the items and once you’ve compiled all five, simply make your way to Pineapple Promenade to receive your event-exclusive treat.
Of course, food isn’t the only draw of the 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival–or even the highlight of the event. As covered in 2022 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival: Merchandise, Topiaries & New Gardens, the celebration features new character topiaries & gardens, Garden Rocks Concert Series makes its return, there’s event-exclusive merchandise to buy, and more.
