The 2017 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival in Disney World Resort is back, bringing more attractions and days of fun this year. From March 1 to May 29, the 90-day celebration will have games, outdoor activities, and attractions much bigger than its preceding revelries.

This year, Epcot has debuted new topiaries bringing to a total of more than a hundred shrubs-of-art of famous Disney characters and motifs. A new Belle topiary was created by the France Pavilion in line with the company's new film release this March. Moreover, Figment, Phineas and Ferb, and The Three Caballeros topiaries will also be introduced this year as well.

Three garden tours and exhibits will feature new flora and fauna species. The Alpine Containers, Geranium Grandeur, and Nature Works Everywhere will let families enjoy their time learning all about nature and environment.

Epcot's Outdoor Kitchen offers a unique dining experience by creating dishes delivered directly from the farm in this Farm-to-Table celebration. People will get to see and taste food from the Bauernmarkt: Farmer's Market with Germany's famous Bavarian sausages.

Meanwhile, the Cider House provides guests with farm-fresh drinks and meals. Additionally, pop up restaurants and international meals are also available on the spot for the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival.

At the same time, Epcot will feature its Garden Rock Concert series -- from popular music to boogey dancing hits. Famous bands like Simple plan will be playing as well. 

Horticultural Manager for the Flower and Garden Festival Eric Darden told ABC News that most programs now are geared for millenials particularly with the food. "While a 22 -year-old might not be excited about growing a petunia or a pansy, they do want to know where their celery or thyme comes from," he said.

The Epcot Theme Park experience is priced at $99 for a one day ticket. However, there will be special event ticket prices for a single-event admission per person.
