Every year, we’re focused on finding the Best Foods at EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival. BUT even our most exciting choices sometimes leave us a little disappointed. And since eating your way around the world can get expensive we wanted to give you the heads up! Here are our favorite foods from Walt Disney World Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot. Updated 2023.
La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush | France
This pink slushy is one we seek out every single year. Very yummy! Not too sweet and has just enough kick to help get us through the day. Vodka, Grey Goose L’Orange Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, and white and red cranberry juices.
Grilled Street Corn on the Cob | Florida Fresh
This spicy Corn on the Cob is great if you’re looking for something fresh. Served with savory garlic spread and crushed spicy corn chips (New) (Plant-based) (Garden Graze).
Chicken and Cornbread Waffle | The Honey Bee-Stro
We love Chicken and Waffles, and this one could have doubled as a lunch! Crispy honey-brined chicken and honey sweet cornbread waffle with whipped honey butter and spicy honey. the cornbread waffle was fantastic. Highly recommend.
Avocado Toast | Brunchcot
We get wary of avocados at fast food type places, simply because they can go bad so quickly. But that was not the case here. This Avocado Toast was great, served with marinated toybox tomatoes on toasted ciabatta (Plant-based) (Garden Graze).
Pollinator Flatbread | The Honey Bee-Stro
Flatbreads are always a treat since you get so much for your Disney dollar, and they’re easily shareable. This one was delicious. Pollinator Flatbread with honey-whipped mascarpone, honey caramelized onions, blueberry gastrique, prosciutto, honey-whipped goat cheese, arugula, honey vinaigrette, and bee pollen (New)
Toasted Pretzel Bread | Bauernmarkt Germany
A classic, this german staple is one we love and highly recommend. Lots of flavors, both sweet and salty. Toasted Pretzel Bread topped with black forest ham and melted gruyère cheese.
Warm Cheese Strudel | Bauernmarkt Germany
By far one of our favorite foods and one of our favorite ( and easiest )Disney recipes the Warm Cheese Strudel with berries is a must-try. This warm cheese-filled pastry is a perfect combination of soft cheese and a mixed berry compote. This pastry comes out warm, and flaky. The berries are a perfect complement to the sweet cheese in this savory pastry. Sometimes this one is a hit or miss if it’s been sitting under lights, but it’s still one we re-try every year.
Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade | Pineapple Promenade World Showcase Plaza
And while there are many amazing drinks at the Flower and Garden Festival, none is as popular as Violet Lemonade! This one comes frozen and luscious with violet syrup and an actual violet. The perfect not-to-sweet treat for spring!
Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake | The Honey Bee-stro
If you’re looking for extra decadent and are a cheesecake lover then get ready to be pleasantly surprised! While cheesecake is cheesecake this one is infused with all things, honey! This is a Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake with honey whipped cream, whipped honey, crystalized honey, honeycomb, dehydrated honey, and fennel pollen meringue kisses.
Frushi | Hanami Japan
By far the Instagram darling of the list the Frushi at the Japan outdoor kitchen makes our Favorite Foods at Disney’s Flower and Garden Festival every year. This Frushi is Strawberry, pineapple, and lychee wrapped in sweet rice and pink soy wrap served with whipped cream, drizzled raspberry sauce, and toasted coconut. A very decadent treat, best shared. If you love the flavors of fruit ( and rice) then this is the Disney treat for you.
Potato Pancake with Caramelized Ham, Onions, and Herb Sour Cream | Bauernmarkt Farmers Market Germany
Potato Pancakes are generally a cozy dish we reserve for cooler months. But, this savory potato pancake dish is light enough to get you through the spring without feeling hungry! Topped with ham, onions, and sour cream you can basically just call this lunch. Another fantastic dish that would be easy to throw together at home.
Watermelon Cucumber Slushy | Florida Fresh
Another favorite slushy from the Flower and Garden Festival, this Disney watermelon slushy is perfectly refreshing and light for hot days. And it’s pink, so that’s really all we needed to know.
