You may have your favorite food stands at Walt Disney World and your treasured secret spots, but have you ever attended the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival which runs through spring? Though it’s called “Flower & Garden,” the real highlight is the food. As a self-proclaimed Walt Disney World expert (and former cast member), I love the limited-edition small bites and creative sips around the World Showcase, which are only served during this festival between February 28 and May 28. Here are the can’t-miss stalls from this year’s festival — and what to try at each.
