The 2020 Epcot International Flower and Garden gets underway March 4 for 90 days of flowers, music, food and more.

Headlining the topiary displays this year, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Pluto wield shovels and other tools to help with the EPCOT transformation now under way.

Donald and Daisy topiaries crop up at World Showcase Plaza for a photo op with mischievous nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie.

Dozens of additional character topiaries including Belle, Beast, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Buzz Lightyear and more dot the festival landscape, along with dozens of Disney-crafted “flower towers” and beds of multi-colored blooms.

Remy joins the France pavilion ahead of that pavilions expansion opening later this year.

The popular dragon moves from China to Japan with a new look.

There is no date yet for any reopening. June 1 is a a hopeful date, but as we have seen, the situation changes almost daily. Status of Flower and Garden is unknown at this point unfortunately.

So with the presumed reopening of the parks being 1 June {is this just presumed or confirmed ?} thanks to the reservations Disney is now accepting, I take it the Flower and Garden Festival for 2020 is now over thanks to COVID-19 ? Or will it continue into July ? I havent been to it yet and I really want to see the butterfly house again, I always go towards the end of it there is also my worry of SSE overhaul beginning while the parks are closed, but thats for another thread

Is anyone gonna water the flowers while EPCOT is closed?

Josh HendyMar 14, 2020

Possibly because wannabe ebay resellers will do almost anything and tell almost any lie to get their hands on hard-to-get merch? I speculate.

Yes the distribution of the passholder gifts is held to the highest levels of security for some reason.

Why would they walk around without ID? If they got killed think of the trouble identifying the bodies. Might have to send the bands to TDO to get the identity

They are strict with pass holder magnets. An elderly couple just waited in a long line at mouse spot and was turned away because they had no identification. Their argument, all they needed was their magic band. They got nothing.

I'd say it depends on if the building being in a location even though the park is closed counts towards the number of days it can stay up and still be considered temporary.

MisterPenguinMar 13, 2020

I don't understand... it's always Festival! Every 79 days, they rotate all the booths one pavilion clockwise so that they're not considered permanent edifices for tax purposes. It's like the Mad Hatter's Tea Par... Hey! The Tea Party appears in the new EPCOT artist's rendering! I discovered the theme of the Summer Festival!

I'm so excited for Simple Plan this weekend! They put on a good show.

It's more general kid friendly. Things that won't offend the chicken nuggets and PB&J crowd. They have had similiar indicators for recent festivals if I recall correctly.
