Within this article you may find a Festival Contest! Epcot is currently hosting its annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. This fun event features amazing topiaries of our favorite characters and live events featuring special guests from HGTV.
During the Flower & Garden Festival, guests at Epcot will be able to purchase new and exciting merchandise for this annual event at Walt Disney World. Merchandise includes accessories, drinkware, apparel, magnets, totes and a whole lot more. The topiary image of Sorcerer Mickey is featured on some of these exclusive items. A new, limited edition Magic Band for this event will likely be an instant best seller!
Disney trading pins are also available, with limited edition pins featuring many of the topiaries you will see throughout the theme park. This year’s magical edition to the extensive topiary collection will be none other than … yes … you guessed it … Anna and Elsa from Frozen.
Merchandise will also include another popular character from Frozen, Olaf. Mickey and Minnie, take on new roles as new garden decorations gnomes. Why have normal garden gnomes when you can decorate your garden with these magical delights?
But wait there’s more! Every Disney fanatic needs to know that Dooney and Bourke will be releasing a new line of goods designed by Paola Gutierrez. Paola Guetierrez is part of Disney’s design group. Black and white bags in different shapes and sizes will feature beautiful silhouettes of Disney characters riding vintage bicycles. Some of the bags will even have a specially designed hangtag made especially for the event.
DIStracted Tip: The bags will be limited to Epcot. They will not be available for purchase at Disneyland Resort or the Disney Parks online store.
All items can be purchased at the Festival Center, which will be located between Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy. The Festival Center will be a themed shopping and demonstration area which has proven to be very popular for guests every year. The merchandise area will be open Friday to Sunday during Festival Weekends. Merchandise can also be found at locations in Future World and World Showcase.
