Festival Merchandise

Flower & Garden Festival Merchandise

2014 Flower & Garden merchandise destinations are located in the Festival Center and around the World Showcase promenade. New and returning artisans will be taking part in the festivities. Consult your Festival Guide Map for locations.

In 2013, Disney introduced topiary artwork to their Flower & Garden Festival merchandise. This fun artwork was wildly popular with guests attending the event and the artwork will return in 2014 on new softlines, home décor and more. In addition, look for a new Minnie Mouse wind chime, Donald Duck garden stake, and Mickey Mouse garden statue. Festival tee shirts will be on sale at the Festival Center for $35, along with a new commenorative coint for $19.95. Also new is a 12-inch pre-dressed Duffy the Disney Bear that resembles a garden gnome and a Flower & Garden Festival coffee mug that features a hidden bee image inside.

For pin traders, topiaries also found their way onto new pins created especially for this year’s Festival. There is a limited release pin featuring Mickey Mouse that will be found in multiple locations through Epcot. There are also a series of limited-edition pins that include characters like Kermit the Frog or Mater and Lightning McQueen. Annual Passholders will want to be on the lookout for a special limited edition pin at the Festival Center, featuring Simba and Rafiki and designed exclusively for them.

Lastly, on March 28, look for a new “revealed/concealed” Vinylmation mystery set with figures shaped like topiaries. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey topiary is the revealed figure in the set, and it will be found on the top of each mystery box. The other four figures will be randomly packaged, so you won’t know which one you get.
