Outdoor Kitchen Menus, Food Photos & Reviews: Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

Looking for 2020 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Outdoor Kitchen menus, food & drink photos, booth menus, or anything else about Walt Disney World’s springtime event? We’ve got you covered! Here you’ll find info about every snack and dessert, plus work-in-progress reviews. (Updated March 11, 2020.)

This is a useful guide for choosing what to order & avoid, plus how to use Disney Dining Plan snack credits during Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival. As we cover in our comprehensive Ultimate Guide to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, the event runs from March 4 to June 1, 2020, and is the most beautiful time of the year all around Epcot thanks to the stunning topiaries and vibrant floral displays. It even helps offset all of those ugly construction walls!

Most of our coverage of the 2020 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival focuses on the Outdoor Kitchens, but that’s only because this is what changes most significantly each year. Although what you’ll see online might suggest otherwise, the event does not revolve around food. In fact, you could have an awesome time at Flower & Garden without eating anything! (Note: You should eat something during your day in Epcot…it just doesn’t have to be from the Outdoor Kitchens. You know what we mean…hopefully.)

Below are our individual booth reviews for each of the Outdoor Kitchens. These include menus, food photos, Disney Dining Plan snack credit recommendations, and more:

In addition to these dedicated Outdoor Kitchens, there are a variety of spots around World Showcase that have special Flower & Garden Festival offerings. These include Refreshment Port & Outpost, Block & Hans, Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Co., Cool Wash, and the Funnel Cake stand near American Adventure.

One of our main complaints about all of the Epcot festivals over the years is that you can spend a ton of money and not really leave feeling full. Accordingly, it’s important that you go to Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival with a ton of Disney Dining Plan snack credits, small appetite, or huge budget.

Our recommendation there is either the spare Disney Dining Plan credits or small appetite. If you’re normally a big eater, this is something you can control by doing a counter service meal in Epcot before starting to graze from the Outdoor Kitchens (might we suggest the new Regal Eagle Smokehouse for something crowd-pleasing or Tangierine Cafe for something adventurous).

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is not all about the cuisine (that would be Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival in the fall). As the name suggests, it’s about horticulture. In other words, don’t feel obligated to try more than a few dishes from the Outdoor Kitchens; treat it as light snacking or a supplement to enhance your afternoon in World Showcase. Unless that’s what you enjoy most about Flower & Garden Festival for some reason, you really will not be missing out if you don’t focus on food during the festival!
