This week marks the start of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, which runs from February 28th to May 28th. This year is extra special, as Walt Disney World celebrates the 25th Anniversary of this beloved festival. To commemorate, there is a tremendous amount of new merchandise that will be available – over 75 new items! The Disney Parks Blog released a sneak peek of a number of these items, some of which are a foray into new merchandise trends.
From clothing to accessories, home goods to Annual Passholder exclusives, there’s something for everyone for this year’s festival merchandise line up. There are four different collection designs: “Mickey’s Grove”, “Figment Discovers”, “Fresh Epcot”, and “Minnie’s Farmhouse Flower Shop”, each featuring a fun-loving or whimsical design to capture the essence of the festival and its 25th anniversary.
A collection of Dooney and Bourke bags feature “Minnie’s Farmhouse Flower Shop”, with a couple of those items being Passholder exclusive. Other Passholder exclusive merchandise includes apparel, accessories, Tervis cups, and pins. In addition to the exclusive items, three limited edition MagicBands will be released during the festival (one is Passholder exclusive).
I personally love the designs and I wish I were going back again this year to experience the festival. It has great colors, gorgeous flower and topiary displays, and great food from all over the world.
Are you going to this year’s festival? What items do you hope to pick up while you’re there?
Until next time,
