Your Guide to Spring Events in Central Florida

Thursday, March 24th, 2022

There’s always something fun to do in Central Florida, and spring is no exception. Make the most of your upcoming Orlando-area vacation by checking out these exciting spring events. 

This spring is a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World resort because several great events are going on. You can participate in the world’s most magical celebration which is the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration and see the parks as they’ve never been presented before. Over at Magic Kingdom, the characters have donned iridescent attire and the castle is decked out in rainbow-inspired anniversary style. Disney is also marking the occasion with lots of extras peppered throughout all of their parks including one-of-a-kind bites, drinks, and decor, as well as limited-time merchandise. 

At Epcot, the annual International Flower and Garden Festival runs this year from March 2 through July 4. During this special event, guests will be treated to the traditional floral displays and topiaries of years past as well as many new offerings. Outdoor kitchens offer the chance to take your tastebuds on a culinary adventure by sampling some of the season’s freshest bites. Special cuisine available includes German market fare, citrus-centered drinks and dishes, southern-inspired breakfasts like shrimp and grits, and honey-infused treats. The Flower and Garden Festival is a great pick for all ages and it is included with your regular Epcot admission.  

Universal Orlando Resort’s fabulous Mardis Gras celebration is back in full effect this spring, too. This annual event showcases authentic Mardis Gras parade floats, a bounty of beads, and many tasty New Orleans-style dishes. The park’s concert series has also returned and this year’s lineup features acts like Khalid, LL Cool J, Sugar Ray, and Jimmie Allen. Running from the beginning of February through the end of April, all the extras of this special event are included with regular park admission.  

If you’re craving something a bit cozier for your spring celebration, consider taking a break from the theme parks to explore the local flora at Spring Bloom at Bok Tower Gardens. This annual springtime celebration runs through the end of April and showcases a splashy array of thousands of azalea and camellia blossoms. There are also daily concerts at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and admission is $16 for adults, $5 for children, and tots under age 5 are free. Bok Tower Gardens is in Lake Wales, about one hour south of Disney World.
