We’ve always enjoyed this beautiful special event, but now it’s right up our alley since they added Outdoor Kitchens to World Showcase.

It’s super sweet to sample and stroll as you take in all of the gorgeous gardens!

New Botanas Botánico Outdoor Kitchen Coming to World Showcase

First and foremost, the FOOD! A brand new Outdoor Kitchen will debut in 2015. Botanas Botánico will be located between the France and Morocco Pavilions.

You know that our favorite part of this year’s Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is the FOOD (see our FULL review of every single food item at the festival here!). But another great aspect of the festival are the nightly Flower Power concerts featuring your favorite songs from the 60s and 70s.

On this Tables in Wonderland evening, guests can join fellow members for a cocktail hour and then reserved seating for the concert of Village People – best known for that wedding reception and summer camp favorite, “Y.M.C.A.” You’ll also get reserved viewing for IllumiNations.
