New Merchandise Blooms for 25th Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival
The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival returns to Walt Disney World Resort from February 28 through May 28. This year will celebrate the Festival's 25th Anniversary with beautiful gardens, new flavors, rocking entertainment, and merchandise to commemorate the anniversary.
Cathy Dawson, event product developer gives us a look at the new merchandise for the festival, “This year’s merchandise mixes the latest on-trend designs with products we know guests love such as headwear or home décor. Since this year is a milestone anniversary, everything has a new look and many items include a 25th Anniversary logo in the artwork. There’s something for everyone to remember a springtime visit to Epcot.”
More than 75 items was created for this annual event and includes four art collections that complement the Festival’s overall design.
The “Mickey’s Grove” collection includes Mickey Mouse, Pluto, and Orange Bird and will be on an assortment of apparel, accessories, home décor, and more.
Figment “unearths the unexpected” in the “Figment Discovers” collection with apparel, drinkware, and garden statuary.
The “Fresh Epcot” collection has brightly colored picks of the season from a simple pocket t-shirt to collectible pins.
"Minnie’s Farmhouse Flower Shop" has the adorable artwork of Minnie Mouse with her cat Figaro and captures the true spirit of spring.
Annual Passholders attending the event will be able to purchase a variety of Passholder Exclusive products including drinkware by Tervis, pins, apparel, and a handbag by Dooney & Bourke.
