The 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is in full swing and so is the Butterfly House!
That’s right, the butterfly house is back and it’s as gorgeous as ever. If you’ve never visited this garden before at the festival, it’s definitely a must-do.
Not only is it visually stunning, but you also get to see butterflies– and learn about them!
What Is The Butterfly House?
The Goodness Garden Butterfly House is presented by GoGo squeeZ. You can find it in Future World West between The Imagination pavilion and The Land pavilion.
The butterfly house gives guests the chance to see a range of butterflies up close. And, yes, they are just as pretty as you would expect. I mean, who doesn’t love butterflies, especially when you get to see them up close and personal?
Keep in mind that this garden closes at dusk, so if it’s at the top of your list of must-dos, make sure to do it as soon as you can!

It’s Also Educational
It’s already been established that the butterfly house is easy on the eyes, but it’s educational, as well!
There are different signs that you can read to learn about butterflies, their life cycles, and more. You might even get to see a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis.
As you can see below, one of the signs in the butterfly house teaches guests about the lifecycle of a butterfly. For example, as the sign reads, “Butterflies lay their eggs on the underside of host plants to protect them from predators.”
Also, did you know that Monarch caterpillars eat milkweed plants, which in turn makes them toxic to predators? See, you learn all kinds of things at the butterfly house.
Social Distancing Measures
Seeing as health and safety measures are still in place across Walt Disney World, you might be wondering how social distancing works in the butterfly house. Well, here’s what you need to know.
First, there are arrows on the ground to keep the traffic flowing in the same direction. Be sure to pay attention to these, so then you don’t end up in someone else’s space or cause a traffic jam.
EPCOT festivals aren’t just about eating yummy food and having fun, they’re about learning.
Flower & Garden is a great event to learn about not only butterflies, but horticulture. We encourage you to take the time to read signs and ask Cast Members questions. That’s what they’re there for!
Flower & Garden really is the perfect springtime festival. Who’s ready to explore the butterfly house?
