One of the best ways to join the concert fun is to book a   Garden Rocks Concert Series Dining Package  for one of the shows at 5:30, 6:45 or 8 p.m. Each package includes breakfast, lunch or dinner at select   Epcot  restaurants and guaranteed concert seating. Reservations will open to Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members Dec. 18 and to the general public Dec. 19.

The festival also presents a kaleidoscope of colorful blooms, topiaries and gardens designed to inspire wonder and whispers of “how’d they do that?!” The brand-new   Remy topiary  will be unveiled as the centerpiece of a   Ratatouille Garden  at the France pavilion, where the new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure attraction will open in summer 2020. The floral Remy will be surrounded by a colorful garden of veggies that comprise ingredients of a ratatouille recipe.



It wouldn’t be a festival without fabulous food, and the event’s 17 Outdoor Kitchens plus other food-and-beverage stops will tickle the taste buds. Florida fans will delight in some of the state’s namesake flavors at three different kitchens: honey-laced treats at   The Honey Bee-stro, citrus-based marvels at   The Citrus Blossom, and sweet and savory delights at   Florida Fresh



Elsewhere across the park, lush swaths of bright blossoms, floating gardens, flower towers and more whimsical topiaries will brighten the landscape. Watch for stunning topiary depictions of celebrated heroines like   Anna  and  Elsa, rough-and-ready Toy Story hero   Buzz Lightyear, beloved Muppets   Miss Piggy  and   Kermit   the Frog, and fairy-tale wonders like   Tinker Bell,   Snow White  and   Bambi. At the   Goodness Garden Butterfly House, hundreds of winged beauties will take flight. Nearby at the   Play Full Garden, families can celebrate spring at a unique playground experience.
