Once again the Festival will include the popular Outdoor Kitchens where guests can nosh and sip their way through World Showcase. And in 2017, two new booths are joining the 13 returning Outdoor Kitchens.

The topiaries for 2017 include an all-new Belle topiary which will have facial features much like the Anna and Elsa topiaries that debuted this year. Belle will be located outside the France pavilion with Beast and her yellow ball gown will be created with Joseph's Coat plants.

Other topiaries include a 6-foot-tall Figment in the Imagination pavilion, Anna and Elsa, Donald Duck and his nephews, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Lady and the Tramp, Simba, Timon, and Tinker Bell.

The Epcot front entrance garden is inspired by a Walt Disney short film and will feature Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Daisy, and Pluto.

The 2017 Garden Rocks concert series will expand to four days each week. Three concerts will be performed each Friday through Monday. Guests will also be able to choose a Garden Rocks Dining Package on select days.

The Festival will also feature a reimagined interactive play garden, the Music Garden Melodies play are, Butterflies on the Go garden, and more.

The Festival Center will be open March 1 through March 5, and then during the rest of the Festival it will be open Fridays through Sundays. Guests will find gardening seminars and DIY workshops at the Festival Center.
