The EPCOT® International Flower and Garden Festival is one of Disney's biggest ever, with dozens of dining booths and activities that create an expansive event. The dining offerings are among the EPCOT festivals' strongest, with every booth containing items on our must-eat list. Some booths, both with returning favorites and new items, stand out among them all as our absolute favorites from this year's festival.
A contender for the best booth of last year's festival, Honey Bee-Stro swings for the fences again with a nearly identical menu that doesn't need to change to be perfect.
