When we found out there is a new challenge coming to the 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, we got VERY EXCITED!
Similar to Epcot’s Festival of the Holiday’s Cookie Stroll, a new foodie quest will debut this year at Epcot when the Flower and Garden Festival kicks off on Wednesday, March 4th, annnnd it’s called the Garden Graze!
First things first, here’s how Garden Graze works! Your mission — should you choose to eat it! — will be to grab a total of FIVE items from the food booths scattered throughout the 2020 Flower and Garden Festival! Make sure you snag a Passport before you embark on this journey!
The five items you’ll need to purchase to win the coveted Garden Graze completer prize ARE:
- Grilled Baby Vegetables with Hummus Cream and Red Pepper Coulis at Flavor Full Kitchen
- Potato Pancakes with House-made Apple Sauce at Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market (Germany)
- Impossible Farmhouse Meatball with Lentil Bread, Spinach, Marinated Vegetables, and Creamy Herb Dressing at Trowel & Trellis
- Pineapple Skewer with Tajin Seasoning at Refreshment Outpost
- Watermelon Cucumber Slushy at Florida Fresh
Did you happen to pick up on the theme? All of these festival offerings are plant-based, meaning EVERYBODY can join in the fun! But wait! We talked about a PRIZE! And once you’ve finished your Garden Graze, you’ll be entitled to a custom Flower and Garden Dole Whip creation at Pineapple Promenade! This exclusive concoction will consist of mango limeade Dole Whip, served in a special souvenir glass that doubles as a terrarium! Plus, it comes with a packet of seeds so you can start growing right away — well, after you finish your completer Dole Whip drink, that is!
We’ll share more details with you about Garden Graze once the 2020 Flower and Garden Festival kicks off next Wednesday — including our review of the completer Dole Whip drink! Until then, you can check out the full list of food booths and menus HERE!
