Epcot Flower and Garden Food Allergy 2024 Menus-Photos-Reviews

Save this post for later

Welcome to EPCOT’s Spring Festival, The International Flower and Garden Festival! This year the Festival runs from February 28th- May 27th.

We’ve got several new items this year, some returning favorites and *fingers crossed* some good eats for all! This review covers the Top 9 Allergens, which are Wheat/Gluten (Disney combines them), Dairy/Milk, Soy, Egg, Peanut, Tree Nut (with Coconut), Fish, Shellfish and Sesame.

Booths are an additional fee, but the Festival is included in your park ticket. Food booths typically open between 11am and Park Closing (generally that’s 9pm). They are located in World Celebration, World Discovery and around World Showcase.

    Quick FAQS

    -What are the Allergen Procedures for Flower and Garden Festival Booths?

    When ordering, let the Cashier know you need your item Allergy Friendly, State your allergens, and they will make a quick phone call to confirm that ingredients and procedures *for that day* are safe for you. Be sure to ask about Shared Fryers, as some items have cross contact. Allergy Friendly (Disney’s Labeling) does not always equal Allergen Free.

    -What locations are Third Party?

    Third Party locations have different Allergen Procedures and Menus. The Third Party locations are: Joffreys Coffee, Mexico, China, Italy, Japan and France Booths

    -How much should I budget?

    I like to Budget $50 per person. This works out to several food items in addition to drinks or dessert. If you had a $25 budget, you could get 3-4 offerings.

        Past 2021 Review

        It’s 2021 and time for the Food and Wine Festival- see what the options are for Gluten Free Food and Wine Eats + What you can enjoy that’s soy and dairy free too!

        It’s springtime at Epcot and it’s time for one of the most popular festivals known to the world showcase! Flower and Garden! 

        There’s a lot more that you can do here besides food (thankfully!) but with the record that Disney has with allergies one common question is what can I have at the festivals? 

        And rightfully so- it’s no fun to be left out 💕

        We’re going to cover some allergy friendly options- but before we do, a few things to know!

        1- it’s ALL from a shared kitchen and cross contamination is here. 

        2- no allergen binders. You need to speak with a chef. It varies based on the day, but they can either call a chef on the phone or request they come over. I personally have the best experience when they call them over and we talk in person. 

        3- things change daily. Even on opening day several booths were not open. Think of this as a snack or a treat and not a meal- none of this is guaranteed! 

        Let’s start with the top safe items and then go booth by booth what can be modified. 

        As always- all pictures are gluten free (if I find an item that can be modified I’ll share that in writing – sorry no pictures) 

        What is the Flower and Garden Festival?

        You can participate in most of the activities and sites with the price of your regular ticket.

        The food however, is an additional expense. Portions are decent sized. Not quite a sample size but certainly not the size that Disney normally serves up for lunch and dinner in their restaurant. (although some can be rather small)

        If we are walking around and enjoying the sites, we can easily eat 2-4 orders per person (depending on how much we share!) and a few drinks. The food entrees at the specialty booths run between 8-15 dollars, so the cost would be similar to what you would spend on a character meal is you got 4 items and a few drink or dessert offerings!

        There’s also other festivals and they have allergy friendly options like Festival of the Arts and Food and Wine

        New this year- the Garden Graze

        YAY! Finally a scavenger hunt that most people can participate in!

        Simply grab your passport, purchase the 5 listed items, get a prize at the end!

        It is plant based, and many of the items can be modified to be safe to eat.

        Is there a risk of Cross Contamination?

        Generally, Disney World does a pretty dang good job about avoiding CC, it’s why we talk so much about the options, from character meals to quick serve options.

        But for several of the festival booths, it’s going to be hard to avoid cross-contamination. Mostly because many of those stands have very small kitchens and they can have different allergens in the same area.

        Also- some of the people working the booths may not be allergy-literate, and this will cause them to not understand your concerns about cross-contamination. Which I’ve had several times at the festivals, many of these people work here part time and haven’t been trained in food allergy procedures.

        Always ask to see an allergy binder or speak to the head manager.

        Also- try to go in the week, and if you need to go on a weekend, go early around luch rather than later. The more people there are at Epcot, the harder it is to get clear answers and good service! There are quite a few options you can choose from at Epcot that aren’t from the festival too!

        This year, for the first time ever, I spoke with a Chef on the phone about my allergy concerns. this was a new one for me, but it went well- I just asked about ingredients and modifications and was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was without having to wait for a chef to come over from the kitchen. BUT you can request to speak to a chef in person (at least that’s what I was told) and it can be easier to do this if you have items you already know that you want to ask about- do it all at once!

        Are all the booths owned by Disney ?

        An important distinction here! Some booths are NOT owned by Disney and you will have to talk to them directly to see what they offer.

        Here’s a list of independently owned booths:

        • Morocco
        • Japan
        • France
        • China
        • Mexico

        Top 8 Free (should be safe for most people- may need modifying)

        Seared Verlasso® Salmon with Farro Risotto and Micro-herbs- Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free. Remove Farro Risotto (soy based and possible gluten- was supposed to be dairy free) Honestly, removing the salmon would make this a great plant based option. The toppings were delicious!

        Strawberry pearls- safe for peanut, treenut, fish shellfish. Pearls are mixed into the mouse so it can’t be modified.

        Pineapple promenade booth

        Dole Whip! Top 8 friendly. This is also where you get the reward for completing the Garden Graze. This is a Lime Mango Dole Whip that is top 8 friendly!

        Magnolia Terrace Booth

        Southern Seafood Boil- it’s cooked in beer BUT they have some boiled only in water. Need to ask them for this to be separate. Friendly for pn/tn/egg/dairy/gluten (dairy and soy remove sausage)

        Grilled Oysters- shucked in front of you! Makes risk of CC less. Ask for no butter for soy and dairy. Friendly for pn/tn/egg/dairy/gluten/soy

        Pecan Praline- Gluten Friendly! It’s also packaged separately. It is pretty much straight sugar though.

        Bauernmarkt- Germany Booth

        Potatoe Pancakes- These are plant based and gluten free, made with just egg (so has soy). Friendly for pn/tn/egg/dairy/gluten/fish/shellfish

        Hanami- Japan Booth

        Frushi is gluten free but has both dairy and soy (dairy can be modified, soy can’t)

        Northern Bloom Booth

        The scallops are supposed to be gluten free BUT they were out both times I went by, so I’ll have to check allergen ingredients when I go next week!
