    I booked my trip for April and just saw that the Flower & Garden Festival will be taking place during my visit. Do I need a special ticket to enter the park? Any tips for this visit? Anything I cannot miss? Ive never been during this time of the year.

    Olá Maria Izabel, tudo bem?

    It is a pleasure to welcome you back to planDisney! Thank you for sending another question our way and allowing us to help you plan another Walt Disney World Resort adventure.

    April is a lovely time to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth and take advantage of spring weather to enjoy EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. What I like about this festival is the transformation the park goes through with the beautiful character topiary displays, and stunning gardens. The best part is that admission to the festival is already included with EPCOT theme park tickets, so all you have to do is make a theme park reservation and plan your visit to experience all the fantastic festival offerings.

    As a Brazilian Guest myself, I know visitors from our country love Disney characters, right? So be sure to explore the park and see all the different character topiaries because they are gorgeous. If you appreciate music as much as I do, check out Garden Rock Concert Series for a chance to enjoy world-renowned musical acts. The 2023 show schedule is available online, so you can already check out the artists scheduled to perform on the date of your visit (subject to change without notice).

    Maria Izabel, it is impossible to talk about EPCOT festivals without talking about food. This year the festival-exclusive Outdoor Kitchens will return, each offering delicious fresh flavors. They will be located all around EPCOT, so I recommend checking out the Disney Eats Foodie Guide to EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival to learn more about this year’s menus (subject to closure or change without notice). Please note that food and beverage offerings are not included with park ticket and require a separate purchase.

    In past years, the festival featured Bambi’s Butterfly House, a walk-through experience where Guests could enjoy a pleasant stroll through flowers, butterflies, and character topiaries. Disney PhotoPass service also captured unique MagicShots during the festival last year, so be sure to ask photographers throughout the park if they offer MagicShots at their locations. To have access to all photos captured during your visit, remember to purchase Memory Maker.

    I hope this information is helpful, Maria Izabel! Keep an eye out on the Disney Parks Blog for news and updates on EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, and come back to visit us if you have additional questions.
