The FREE Walt Disney World Tour You Can Take for a Limited Time

Did you know the Walt Disney World Resort offers several guided tours? These experiences share new information with Guests about various areas of the theme parks and Resorts and sometimes provide a glimpse backstage as well.

Some of the most popular Disney World tours include the Keys to the Kingdom tour at the Magic Kingdom, the Behind the Seeds tour in EPCOT, and Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but there is one complimentary tour at a Disney Park you may want to consider, too.

EPCOT is home to some of the best special events at Walt Disney World, with a packed lineup of annual festivals filling out the calendar. This spring, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival has taken over the Park through July 5, 2023, and one underrated part of the festival is a tour Guests can take that is totally free (with admission to EPCOT, that is.)

The complimentary tea tour takes place in the UK Pavilion in World Showcase, which is home to some of the festival’s most interesting gardens that, ironically enough, are not Disney-themed at all. Here alongside topiaries featuring characters from Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan (1953), Guests can also see the Shakespeare Garden, which showcases plants and flowers mentioned in works by Shakespeare’, and the English Tea Garden, with plants used to create the blends of Twinings Tea you may enjoy around Disney World (and at home!)

During the tour, Guests will learn about where tea comes from, how it’s made, and specific details for how Twinings creates some of its most popular blends. Featured both in the garden and on the tour are black teas, green teas, herbal teas, white teas, and Oolong teas.

Disney shared a quick look at the tour on its official TikTok account:

Many of the teas showcased on the tour are available to purchase in the adjacent gift shop in the UK pavilion, and several of them are served around Walt Disney World restaurants as well.

The only catch with the complimentary tour? It’s only available during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, as the tea garden is not a permanent part of the Park. As such, if you are visiting EPCOT between now and July 5, 2023, be sure to stop by the Twinings shop in the UK pavilion in the morning to inquire about the day’s tours.
