We’re pretty bloomin’ excited for the 2020 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival from March 4th to June 1st. We’ve been checking out everything you can expect at the fest, from the Garden Rocks lineup to the Outdoor Kitchen menus.
Plus, you KNOW we’ve been counting the seconds until we got a first look at the merch in person! Of course, we’ve already gotten a preview of what we can expect but now we’re seeing it ALL! Spoiler alert: There’s a lot of Spike the Bee and Orange Bird — and we LOVE IT!
Let’s have a look at the barrel of merch you can expect at this year’s festival!
Orange Bird Merchandise
Much to our delight, a LOT of this year’s Flower and Garden merchandise features Orange Bird. We love that little guy!!
We’re swooning over these sa-weet Orange Bird Minnie Ears and we can’t wait to sport them around Epcot. Everyone deserves to hear “Hello Sunshine”!
There’s also this vibrant and stylish Orange Bird Spirit Jersey. This is one of our fave spirit jerseys we’ve seen in a while. Check out the ombre effect and the chipper face of that citrusy avian!
And we can’t imagine a more perfectly springtime bag than the new Orange Bird Loungefly Backpack that looks like a woven basket.
When you’re looking to say “Hello” to sunshine during the winter, the Orange Bird Ornament can be there to remind you of warmer times!
The Orange Bird Pitcher is also a pretty adorable way to serve up orange juice at your next brunch!
The Orange Bird Straw Hat is perfect for festival hopping and protecting your face from that intense midday sunshine!
And there are TWO ways to get your drink on with the help of the little orange guy. We’re big fans of this Orange Bird Glass…
Spike the Bee Merchandise
Speaking of sippers, another Disney character is getting his own line of souvenirs! It’s Spike the Bee who was featured in many early Disney cartoons– often aggravating Donald Duck. We can’t wait to pick up this cutie pie in the Spike the Bee Sipper. We’ll see this guy available at The Honey Bee-stro Booth.
You can also sip your nectar out of a Sweet As Can Bee Tumbler which features the adorable little Spike.
Adorn your tree this upcoming holiday season with the Sweet as Can Bee Ornament.
You can dress as sweet as can BEE while you’re Buzzin’ Around the festival in this T-shirt.
We also FLIPPED when we saw this Spike the Bee Buzzin’ Around Picnic Blanket. A picnic blanket?? That’s like the perfect Flower and Garden merch!
Wait, we take it back. Maybe THIS is the perfect Flower and Garden merch. It’s the Sweet As Can Be Stake!
Other Flower and Garden Merchandise
Of course, there’s a ton of other Flower and Garden merch, too! Keep the April showers out of your eyes so you can see the May flowers with the Mickey Mouse Home Grown Cap.
If you want to see flowers forevermore, it’s important that we keep the environment in mind. That’s why these Flower and Garden Reusable Straws are a great buy! These Flower and Garden Trash Can Shakers are also ready to spruce up your kitchen. Adorbs!
And there’s this cute Flower Pot Mug that looks like it has a piece of corn for the handle!
We also are loving this Mickey Festival Keychain where he looks like he’s having trouble choosing between all the fresh eats (we get it, Mickey).
World In Bloom Collection
Inspired by the leading lady herself, Minnie Mouse, the World In Bloom Collection is bringing fashion to the fest this year as a celebration of all things floral. This colorful “World in Bloom” Spirit Jersey makes us happy just by looking at it. Plus, Minnie looks gorg in her gardening attire.
There’s also a stunning new Flower and Garden World in Bloom Minnie Dress and matching Tote Bag. Um… yes! We’ll look just as stylish as Minnie mouse wearing this stuff around the fest!
There’s also the World in Bloom Dooney & Bourke Bag featuring our favorite sassy mouse.
Minnie Mouse also looks dashing on this World in Bloom Hat (Look, Minnie– we match!).
Complete the look with this World in Bloom Glittery Tank with Glittery Minnie Ears.
The collection also features this World In Bloom keychain. Oo la la, she looks the part for sure!
In case your tree still isn’t complete, check out the World in Bloom Minnie Ear shaped Ornament.
Just what every household needs: the World in Bloom Ceramic Plate. Put it on display or we think it would look nice with a stack of cookies piled high!
Annual Passholders can treat themselves to one (or both!) of these Passholder Exclusive Complimentary Magnets depending on what date(s) you head to the festival.
And Figment is repping the Passholder life as usual on the Passholder-Exclusive T-shirt…
…and the Passholder-Exclusive Pin!
Plus, LOOK AT THESE WATERING CAN MUGS. If you’re not a Passholder already, these mugs may give you one (or four) more reason(s) to become one!
The Flower and Garden merchandise will be available around the park at the temporary MouseGear location, Art of Disney, and various merch booths!
