All that beautiful landscaping? Just a free buffet.

WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — The Epcot Center Resort and Spa is known for its many amazing international festivals, and one of the most popular is the International Flower and Garden and Spa Festival, which is going on now. Apart from the beautiful flowers, gardens, and spas added for the event, the festival is also known for tasty food offerings not usually found in the park. But that food costs money, over and above park admission — and until the Epcot Applebees opens, low-cost options are hard to find.

If you’re on a budget, though, the right attitude and a little knowledge of edible plants will have you eating your fill, all for free!
