Running through May 28th, we always look forward to this annual celebration of all things that bloom! And one of the highlights over the past several years has been the Outdoor Kitchens. These food booths, similar to the Marketplace Booths for the Food and Wine Festival — focus on flavors fresh from the garden.

    Food Booths in Epcot Flower & Garden Festival are similar to marketplace booths. This garden festival focus on fresh flavors and you can taste the delicious food varieties here.

    I absolutely love the flower & garden festival, and as a vegetarian they always have a bunch of delicious options for me. Unfortunately, since the last festival, Disney seems to have changed their definition of “vegetarian” to exclude eating eggs. I really don’t understand why they did this, as vegetarians eat both dairy and eggs, while vegans eat neither, so this new definition is unhelpful to both of those groups. It also seems to be inconsistent. Cakes were listed as vegetarian at the last festival, while cookies were not. I’m sure both of these things contain eggs and neither contained gelatin. Very annoying to have to ask for ingredients at every booth and have snarky cast members tell you that eggs are not vegetarian.

    We had to cancel our F & W festival trip and decided to give the F & G a try at end of March.
    I know it cannot live up to all the hype of the F & W but looking through the menus I cannot wait.

    Thank you tremendously for always posting your full menu and photos of the festival. As a mother of a child with severe life-threatening food allergies, I am always in full planning mode. Reading your blog always helps me to see where might be safe and where to completely avoid (then of course ask more questions once there). Thank you from our family!
