Disney has today released a few more details on its plans for the 90 day 2019 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, which reaches its 26th year.

A new Bo Peep and her Sheep topiary from Disney•Pixar’s upcoming “Toy Story 4” will greet guests at the festival’s new Family Play Zone. Featured gardens will focus on butterflies, bamboo and Shakespeare’s metaphoric plants, while more than 70 Disney-themed topiaries – from Snow White to Daisy Duck – will be featured throughout Epcot.

New Outdoor Kitchens with their own herb and veggie gardens will debut this year with creative bites and beverages. The Garden Rocks Concert Series expands this year to every day of the festival, offering new and returning acts spanning multiple genres. Returning favorites like The Spinners and Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone will be joined by artists new to the festival like TobyMac, Steven Curtis Chapman and Colin Hay of Men at Work.

The 2019 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will take place March 6 to June 3 2019 at Walt Disney World.

Anyone notice if the usual cactus/succulent section made it to this year’s festival?

I think the topiaries provide a bit of whimsy -- I particularly like the one of Kermit riding his bicycle! :joyfull: Agree that the flowers, trees, shrubs, etc., are beautiful, and are the highlight of the F&G Festival each year.

Is it just me, or is anybody else not impressed by these fake topiaries? 🤷‍♂️🌳 It's like breaking out the ol' plastic family Christmas tree year after year. The real stuff; flowers and trees, shrubs, etc. are just great, naturally. 👍

It all looks so great! Can't wait to go in May. Orange Bird cups will probably be gone by then, but souvenir cups like that, you use them that day in the park then never again.

Passholder offerings here https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/epcot/epcot-flower-and-garden-passholder-offerings/ Includes a Pluto and Daisy Magnet and Pluto and Daisy Duck cookies. Also the usual 10% off dining packages and 20% off passholder merch. Could care less about the cookie but I'm going in late April and would prefer Pluto over Daisy. No such luck for me.

Saw a sneak peek of the AP magnet(s) and other stuff on a FB ad, so it made me search for what merch is coming out. There's a sneak peek video on youtube. As a Figment lover who usually buys his stuff from the fesitvals, I'm both heart broken & a lil happy that I only saw 1 item in the sneak peek video that had figment, and then the patches from the map. Heart broken because nothing to add to the collection (and a lil weary in the back of my mind that it "means" something) but happy it can save my wallet some. Guess we'll see when stuff really goes on sale, but I'll have to wait and see what's in the shop parks app anyway (and we all know how good it's been lately :rolleyes: ) and/or when the fam goes late April.
