2017 Epcot Flower and Garden Menus!

unnamed-44

The annual Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will be held from March 1- May 29, 2017.  Epcot comes alive with the colors of spring, the smell of amazing food, and the sounds of some good ‘ole rock and roll – this festival is a can’t miss event of every spring season!

 

Each food kiosk has a little something for your dining pleasure.  Just enough to wet the pallet as you move on to the next kiosk to feast on another small plate… and then another… and another and…you get the idea.  Man I am getting hungry just thinking about all the incredible food.  Let’s take a look at the newly released menus.

How does one choose?!?    I say take your time, enjoy the scenery and get a little something from each kiosk.  Be adventurous and take some chances.  With the prices ranging from $3 to $8 it is a great opportunity to try something new, like the seared scallop at Northern Bloom, or maybe an old favorite like the pulled pork slider from the Smokehouse.   No doubt you will fall in love with something as Spring fills the air at The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.

 

In my next post we will be looking at what our official coffee  Joffrey’s has to offer at this year’s festival:  Stay Tuned!
