    I'm planning on coming to WDW in March of 2025 during the Flower and Garden Festival. I need to calculate the budget as accurately as possible. How much should I plan to budget for food and drink at the festival?

    Hiya Dana,

    Welcome to planDisney! I like your planning style! When I visit Walt Disney World Resort, I love to treat myself (and my family), which requires careful budgeting. Every vacation, I start planning early and carefully calculating every expense. Once I’ve figured out my estimated costs, I start purchasing Disney Gift Cards a little at a time until I have my estimated budget covered. It helps me space out my spending and avoid sacrificing my dreams for cost.

    While the official pricing for EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival hasn’t been released for the next couple of years, there is a way you can start planning. Prices vary from year to year (as do the offerings), but you can google last year’s menu pricing and get an idea of what the eats and drinks would potentially cost based on the foods/drinks your family typically enjoys. For reference, my family of three (two adults and a baby) always shares food at EPCOT festivals so we can eat more. We also don’t purchase alcoholic beverage options very often but will buy one of the non-alcoholic beverages or water. We also tend to choose more sweet than savory choices, and my husband doesn’t eat shellfish. I’m also a sucker for Orange Bird, so I will always purchase a souvenir cup featuring my favorite bird. We spent around $60-$70 at EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival in total.

    I hope this was helpful, Dana. You can get an even better estimate once next year’s menus are released, but I hope this is an excellent place to start. Please come back and see us if we can help you plan any more details of your 2025 trip.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
