The start of the 2018 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is just a couple of days away, as it is set to begin on Wednesday, February 28, and run for three full months. There will be all kinds of food to try at the different Outdoor Kitchens, concerts to enjoy from great bands, and a lot of incredible merchandise to pick up. Disney has now given a sneak peek of the merchandise that will be available at this year’s festival.
Disney has been working on this new merchandise for the 2018 festival for a full year, and fans can finally get a look at it. As the 25th anniversary of the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival arrives this week, guests will be able to celebrate in the style and fashion of two and a half decades of blooming fun.
Oh, and Figment is quite prominent along the iconic Orange Bird as well.
From the looks of things, there will be a lot that’s going to be hard to pass up, as there will be more than 75 new items for sale. Event product developer Cathy Dawson spoke with the Disney Parks Blog, where she said that things for this year are being seen from a new view.

Dawson said that they want guests visiting Walt Disney World during the festival to have history mixed with the trendiest looks.
“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.”
As you can see by the designs, Disney is incorporating some shirts with subtle touches, while others bring about the full thrill of their beloved characters such as Mickey Mouse, Pluto, and Figment.

Guests will be able to find shirts, baseball caps, Tervis tumblers, mugs, sun hats, artwork, and so much more. Of course, no festival or Disney event would be complete without a brand new Dooney & Bourke design for the purse and bag lovers.
This year, Minnie Mouse and Figaro are bringing lots of color into bloom.

There will also be three new MagicBand designs coming out for the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival, but they are all going to be limited editions. You’ll want to pick one of these up as soon as you see it, or it could be gone by the time you go back to purchase.
