The 2016 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival has returned to Walt Disney World Resort through May 30 this year. A few weeks ago I shared a first look at new products being released at this annual event in a Disney Parks Blog Unboxed video. Today, I have a look inside the Festival Center located in Future World between Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy Pavilions.
As part of Fun Fresh Weekends, the Festival Center will be open Fridays through Sundays throughout the event. The location is home to complimentary gardening presentations and a massive merchandise shop.
I was happy to see several of the items I showcased in the Disney Parks Blog Unboxed video. These items include Figment T-shirts, hats, decorative items and much more. I was also delighted to find a table full of Orange Bird products including recently released kitchen towels and mugs.
Other items offered this year will include a garden figurine of Donald Duck with Chip and Dale, two coffee mugs and a purple flower pot. Look for additional decorative garden items including wind chimes and garden stakes.
For this event, we are releasing a limited edition retail MagicBand that has an edition size of 2,500.
Finally, fans of PANDORA Jewelry will be happy to find a new .925 sterling silver charm featuring Spaceship Earth with floral details. Look for this item at Mouse Gear in Future World.
The Festival Center is just one of several merchandise locations throughout Epcot where you’ll find select items shown in this article. Here are some additional items I found during my brief visit including Dooney & Bourke handbags, products created especially for Annual Passholders, and a beautiful 12-month calendar filled with image of character topiaries.
