The 2018 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will offer a new scavenger hunt this year in addition to the returning Egg-stravaganza hunt.

From March 16 through April 1, guests can participate in an Egg-stravaganza scavenger hunt - hunting high and low in World Showcase for "eggs" that portray favorite Disney characters.

As you find the hidden Disney Character-themed "eggs" in the park, you record your discoveries by placing a corresponding sticker on a specially themed Egg-stravaganza map. Maps and stickers can be purchased for $5.99, plus tax at either Disney Trader, Pin Central or World Traveler stores.

When you find all of the “eggs” and complete your scavenger hunt map, you then return it to Disney Traders for a special surprise.

New for 2018 is the Spike's Pollen Nation Exploration. In this hunt, Disney's favorite honey bee, Spike, has been pollinating his way around the festival, giving gardeners of any age the chance to follow his pollination trail around World Showcase at Epcot.

To get started, pick up a garden map and stickers at Port of Entry. Then, it’s time to look for Spike!

As you explore the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, be on the lookout for Spike as he pollinates Epcot’s gardens. In each garden, you’ll have to search for the plant Spike has pollinated, identifiable by Spike himself and a Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration plant stake. Once you find him, add the corresponding sticker to your map.

After your journey is complete, return your map for a springtime surprise.

Maps and stickers for Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration can be purchased for $5.99, plus tax at Port of Entry.

You can get some of these items from www.ShopDisney.com also. (Sorry to report, the tote was available yesterday. It's not showing now.)

I always loved to watch the ‘making of’ videos in the theatre of the festival center. They showed them making the topiaries and everything. The best part is always the time lapse of them setting up the entrance display overnight. It’s a shame if they don’t shown that anymore. We just picked up our magnets and are sitting down for the 8pm show of Night Ranger. :cool:

It was available when I first saw it but having a tote isn't a guy thing. Now the status has changed from "Sold Out" to "In Store Purchase Only".

We are going in May for the first time. We aren't going to Universal on this trip so we'll be able to spend 2 days at Epcot and really enjoy all the festival has to offer. We are really looking forward to it!

Too much to take in. I would hate to be on vacation and not really slow down and enjoy it

F&W has a bunch of seminars and presentations. So this would just been Food and Plants.

Seriously considering buying something with Orange Bird. The Figment stuff is cute too, but I just love Orange Bird a lot. Decisions, decisions...

In Shop Disney Parks, I settled on an Orange Bird shirt — 2018 F&G Festival on front left, Orange Bird on the back.

Wow, so they are dropping the illusion of any sort of educational aspect now? It's just F&W with plants? Not complaining just...
