This food guide to the 2023 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival offers Outdoor Kitchen booth menus, food photos, and reviews from the spring and summer event at Walt Disney World. Basically, everything you need to know about eating your way around World Showcase and the best & worst savory snacks, decadent desserts, and drinks.
This year, Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival runs from March 1 through July 5, 2023 at Walt Disney World. Let’s start with our individual booth reviews for each of the Outdoor Kitchens. These include menus, food photos, prices, what’s recommended, not worth the money, and more:
Note: These food booth reviews are not yet updated for the 2023 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival, which is because the event has yet to begin. Once it starts, we’ll be spending several days towards the beginning of the festival taste-testing familiar favorites and new additions, and re-reviewing everything. Check back in mid-March 2023 for updated reviews. In the meantime, the above reviews should be about 90% accurate.
Outdoor Kitchen food booths are all located throughout the World Showcase pavilions, Future World, and the World ShowPlace event center, just like the marketplaces at the EPCOT festivals before them.
The 2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival has several additions, as the lineup has grown by 5 booths from that event to 20 Outdoor Kitchens. That’s still a smaller slate than normally featured at the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, the park’s flagship culinary event.
The newest Outdoor Kitchens are the EPCOT Sunshine Griddle offering brunch items, and EPCOT Farmers Feast, which will feature a rotating seasonal menu of local ingredients throughout the festival. As noted above with our “Best of the Fest” label, EPCOT Sunshine Griddle is our favorite Outdoor Kitchen. There’s also a different design for the popular Orange Bird sipper–expect long lines for Citrus Blossom the first couple weeks of the event as every diehard Walt Disney World fan buys one, and every eBay pirate buys one-hundred.
Returning to EPCOT’s Flower & Garden Festival is the Garden Graze, a food stroll highlighting five offerings listed in the Festival Passport. Upon your Garden Graze purchase, you will receive a stamp for your Festival Passport. Once you’ve collected all five stamps, bring your Festival Passport to Pineapple Promenade Outdoor Kitchen to receive a complimentary prize exclusive to the festival. Complete the Garden Graze at your leisure, and you can even bring back your stamped Festival Passport to EPCOT at any time during the festival to complete your Garden Graze.
