2020 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival – Outdoor Kitchens

Hello Epcot Festival fans!  Disney has recently announced the 2020 Outdoor Kitchen menus for the International Flower and Garden Festival. This year's festival runs from March 4th through June 1st 2020.

This post is meant to be informative only, if you are looking for our take on some of the food and drink offerings from 2019, look here: Flower and Garden Festival: Treats and Eats Part One | Part Two.  Those posts are also full of yummy photos of some of the returning favorites.  As a little teaser, two of my personal favorite returning booths are Florida Fresh and the Honey Bee-stro.

A lot of the Outdoor Kitchens will seem familiar as we have a lot of returning favorites this year, with one new addition coming - Magnolia Terrace.  KA means the dishes are Kid Approved and GF indicates the dish is Gluten Free.

The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details.
