About Spike’s Pollen-nation Exploration 2024

Spike’s Pollen-nation Exploration is back at the 2024 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival – here’s where to find him! My kids and I look forward to the scavenger hunts at each festival because they’re fun, a great way to explore EPCOT, and have cute prizes. This year you are looking for Spike throughout different gardens across Future World and the World Showcase as he pollinates different plants. 

I will also be giving you spoilers on where to locate each Spike, just in case you need some extra help!

How to Play the Spike the Bee Scavenger Hunt

First, you will need to purchase a scavenger hunt map for $9.99 (before discount or tax). Corresponding plant stickers are attached to the back of it. You can purchase the map at various locations, including Disney Traders, Creations Shop, World Traveler and various festival booths around the World Showcase.

Spoiler-Free Tips for Finding Spike the Bee

  1. Spike is pollinating plants in various gardens throughout the festival. If you have any difficulty finding a particular garden, refer to pages 6 and 7 in your Festival Passport for a list of all the gardens and where to find them!
  2. You can complete the hunt during several visits and don’t even have to complete the hunt to claim your prize. 
  3. I also recommend looking for Spike during the day so he is easier to spot.

*Warning: Spoilers Ahead!*

As a disclaimer, sometimes locations are changed. Depending on where you purchase your map, you may start at different locations. I purchased my map at Creations, so my hunt started in Future World.
