Springtime has come to Disney Parks and the 2021 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival food is a bounty of deliciousness from the garden. As the topiaries bring the vibrant colors of spring, the food menu is bursting with flavors. A fresh, fragrant feast awaits for all Disney theme park guests.

The annual Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is always a popular event at Disney Parks. While this year’s event is just a Taste of Epcot, it is still filled with culinary delights from the Disney Chefs. With 20 outdoor kitchens around Epcot, it could take multiple visits to enjoy all the food choices. From light bites to tempting desserts, the feast is overflowing with deliciousness.

While many people visit Epcot for the food, the annual Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is a feast for all the senses. Throughout the theme park, the stunning character topiaries lend themselves to stunning pictures. In addition, the butterfly garden returns as a Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration and a new Health Full Trail.

Don’t miss these 2021 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival food choices.

Meyer Lemon-poached Lobster Salad, The Citrus Blossom

A re-imagined version of the popular lobster dish, the grape-fruit rose vinaigrette has a lovely brightness to the luscious lobster. The avocado yuzu panna cotta is a creamy contrast to the hearts of palm. This dish is one that you will not want to share.

Tupelo Honey and Sweet Corn Spoon Bread, The Honey Bee-stro

While everything is always better with bacon, this dish really highlights how honey balances the other flavors. From the heat of the jalapeno to the richness of the bacon, this dish could make you go back for seconds.

Avocado Toast, Epcot Sunshine Griddle

While the kids will beg for that Froot Loops shake, adults will have to order the Avocado Toast. The combination of the fresh goat cheese and the marinated toybox tomatoes play off the richness of the avocado. Served on toasted ciabatta, your regular avocado toast might seem bland after this bite.

Soy-Glazed Pork Shank, Hanami

While everyone loves the Frushi, the soy-glazed pork shank is a filling dish that is enough for dinner. With the truffle mashed potatoes and the garlic chips, this dish will make you rethink your pork dinner at home. Consider pairing it with the Blood Orange Sour with fresh mint.

Moroccan Seafood Couscous, Taste of Marrakesh

Another delectable delight from Morocco, the Moroccan Seafood Couscous celebrates the contrasting flavors and textures. While the seafood is plentiful, the anchovy breadcrumbs are a highlight of the dish that you might borrow for your own home cooking.

Beignet Caramelise, Fourre Crème Vanilla, Glaxe au Caramel Fleur de Sel, Fleur de Lys

You don’t have to speak French to know that the first bite of this dessert will have you living your best list. A perfectly cooked beignet is combined with a rich vanilla cream. The touch of caramel fleur de sel makes it the sweet treat that you will remember for a long time.

These 2021 Epcot Flower and Garden food options are just a small sampling of the many delicious dishes around the Disney theme park. The Disney Parks festival runs now through July 5, 2021.
