Walt Disney World has released the Outdoor Kitchen lineup for the 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, with a lot of returning fan favorite food booths. This post offers a preview of the culinary lineup for the spring and early summer event, locations of each, and other recent news about “Fresh EPCOT.”
As a reminder, the 2022 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival at Walt Disney World once again has an extended duration, replicating its run from last year almost identically. This year’s Flower & Garden Festival kicks off on March 2 and goes out with a bang on July 4, 2022–for a grand total of 125 days.
As usual, the Outdoor Kitchens will be located throughout the World Showcase pavilions and spill into Future World/Celebration/Nature/Discovery, with the booths open each day from park opening until park closing. Of course, those operating hours assume no staffing issues, which hasn’t always been the case recently–don’t be surprised if booths are randomly closed from time to time. Below is a list of the Outdoor Kitchens from DisneyWorld.com…
Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market (Germany) – Venture to Germany for Bavarian bites sure to sate foodies of all ages. Every dish is kÃ¶stlich!
Cider House (Near the United Kingdom) – Behold buzz-worthy ciders and artisanal provisions that are sure to hit the spot.
The Citrus Blossom (Near Port of Entry) – Treat your taste buds to delicious dishes and beverages that showcase bright citrus fruits like lemon, orange and grapefruit.
EPCOT Farmers Feast (Near Test Track) – Fuel up for a fun-filled day at EPCOT with hearty dishes and savory sides featuring farm-fresh ingredients.
EPCOT Sunshine Griddle (Near Test Track) – Enjoy delicious breakfast dishes like avocado toast and shrimp & grits–served morning, noon and night.
The title for our Epcot Sunshine Griddle review last year was “EPCOT’s Best New Food Booth in Five Years!” That pretty much says it all. I was really worried Epcot Sunshine Griddle wouldn’t return this year as that location has served up subpar doughnuts for the subsequent events. Thankfully, it’ll be back–don’t sleep on this Outdoor Kitchen!
Flavor Full Kitchen Hosted by AdventHealth (Between Imagination and Refreshment Port) – Nourish yourself with flavorful fare made with healthy ingredients fresh from the garden.
Fleur de Lys (France) – Indulge in haute cuisine and boissons that’ll make you fall in ooo-la-la-love with this Parisian pop-up!
Hanami (Japan) – Journey to Japan for innovative plates crafted with culinary Zen–which pair beautifully with sake and Japanese-inspired cocktails.
The Honey Bee-stro Hosted by National Honey Board (Near Port of Entry) – Quell cravings with an incredible menu of foods and beverages infused with the nectar of the gods!
Another absolute all-star, thanks in large part to the most ambitious dessert of any Epcot festival (pictured above). The whole menu is usually exceptional, but that’s the one must-order item.
Jardin de Fiestas (Mexico) – Take a food-tastic tour of the Mexico Pavilion. These tantalizing tastes will add some spice to your day!
La Isla Fresca (Between Morocco and France) – Nibble on Caribbean-seasoned dishes that’ll send appetites swaying to the island beat!
Lotus House (China) – Sink your teeth into authentic Chinese eats filled with morsels of good fortune!
Magnolia Terrace (American Adventure) – Get a taste of the bayou as you savor classic comfort food of the American Gulf Coast.
Northern Bloom (Canada) – Discover palate-pleasing fare from our Great White North neighbor… O Canada!
Pineapple Promenade (Near Port of Entry) – Get your tropical fruit fix from tart ‘n’ tangy to the sweetest frozen treats!
Primavera Kitchen (Italy) – Mangiare hearty helpings of Old-Country dishes–like arancini and ravioli–served with a glass of vino. Now that’s amore!
The booth of every blogger’s nightmares. Or at least, those who don’t enjoy dropping $40+ on microwaved frozen food.
Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina (Morocco) – Intoxicate taste buds with the exotic flavors of this North African mecca–mysterious Morocco!
Trowel & Trellis Hosted by Impossible (Near Disney Traders) – Delight in plant-based versions of some favorite foods–created from innovative recipes with impossibly delicious twists!
This is one of Sarah’s favorite booths. It’s usually pretty inventive and has at least one “wow, I can’t believe that’s not meat” entree.
Additional Locations – Delight your appetite with mouthwatering morsels, nibbles and noshes from these year-round food stops:
