The 2020 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is in full bloom!
Spring is our favorite time of year at Walt Disney World and the festival just makes it that much sweeter. Now through June 1, set your sights on gorgeous topiaries throughout the park, the Garden Rocks concert series, and of course, outdoor kitchens!
Our friendly neighbors in the North have returned once again!
Northern Bloom is back with the same savory and sweet options from last year and just a few changes in the beverage department.
Somehow, Disney continues to make perfectly grilled scallops from the confines of a tiny kiosk! We’re happy to welcome back the Seared Scallops with French green beans, butter potatoes, brown butter vinaigrette, and apple-wood smoke bacon.
Priced at $7.00 (or one Disney Dining Plan Snack Credit), this is also a Gluten Friendly option!
The carnivores out there may be happy to see the return of the Beef Tenderloin Tips served with mushroom bordelaise sauce, whipped potatoes, and garden vegetables.
The tenderloin tips are priced at $6.75, or one Dining Plan Snack Credit. Balance out those savory options once again with the Griddled Maple Pound Cake served with warm peach compote, sweet corn gelato, and featuring Burton’s Maple Syrup.
This dessert is priced at $4.75, or one Dining Plan Snack Credit (and is kid-approved!).
While we saw many return food items at Northern Bloom, there’s been some shake-ups in the beverage department! The Maple Popcorn Shake is available non-alcoholic or this year with Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky.
We thought the shake was simply delicious! There’s definitely a strong whisky flavor and the maple flavor did not overpower this beverage! This drink is priced at $4.75 for the non-alcoholic version, or $13.00 for it to come with whisky!
The three beer options — Unibroue Ephemere Apple Wheat Ale, 81Bay Brewing Apricot with Maple Syrup, and Collective Arts Brewing Blackberry Fruit Beer — are also available as a flight.
This beer flight was good, and a little more adventurous than the pineapple flight at Pineapple Promenade. For being fruit beers we actually found them to be on the dryer side so surprisingly not too sweet! This beer flight is priced at $10.50.
Oh, Canada! You continue to wow us…
