It’s the 25th annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, and this year they have introduced a brand new scavenger hunt. Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration has us looking all over World Showcase to find the little lovable honey bee, Spike. He can be found pollinating flowers in 12 gardens around the lagoon.
To participate in Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration you have to purchase a map and stickers set from Pin Central, Port of Entry, or other select gift shops. They cost $5.99 plus tax per set. Once you find Spike in all 12 gardens you can redeem your completed map for one of four different festival patch sets. Each patch set includes 3 different patches. (And no, they are not iron-on patches unfortunately.) See the full list of hunt locations below!
Scavenger hunt spoilers from this point forward:
We’re showing you exactly where every Spike and garden is hiding in World Showcase, in order from left to right, around the world. Happy hunting!
Tropical Rainforest Garden – Mexico
Just to the right of the pavilion’s huge pyramid you’ll find the Tropical Rainforest Garden. This garden features Orchids that climb up trees. And that’s where you’ll find Spike, hiding up real high near the trees. His little pollination sign can be found on the ground though, and it’s for an Orchid.
Norway Troll Topiary – Norway
This garden is found on the right side of Norway, heading to China. You can’t miss the big green troll topiary. Spike is buzzing around to the left of the troll, and he’s pollinating Delphinium.
Outpost Savanna – Outpost
This is a real tough one! The “Savanna” garden can be found just to the right of Timon and Pumbaa topiaries, and outside the wall along the lagoon. It’s not so much a garden, but more the “Fountain Grass” that can be seen growing by the water.
Italy Promenade – Italy
This one can be found near the bridge and Venice canal boats by the lagoon, just to the left of the of the Primavera Kitchen festival booth. Spike is flying above some potted Olive plants.
Garden Italiano – Italy
This garden is also in Italy, found just to the right of the Lady and the Tramp Topiaries. It’s located between Italy and American Adventure and is called Garden Italiano.
Smokehouse Garden – The American Adventure
Directly in front of The Smokehouse festival booth you’ll find Spike buzzing around the feet of the Woody topiary display. He’s pollinating a Sunflower in this garden.
Japan Promenade – Japan
Look for the Bonsai garden directly across from Hanami, Japan’s festival booth, and Spike can be seen on the far right side of the garden. This is on the edge of the land, near the Morocco side.
Urban Spice Garden – Morocco
This garden is located just to the right of the Tangierine Cafe, in front of the restrooms. Spike can be found to the right of the Spice Garden sign pollinating a Chili Pepper.
Florida Fresh Garden – Between Morocco and France
This area stretches between Morocco and France. Spike can be found just to the left of the Florida Fresh food booth, pollinating an Orange tree.
English Tea Garden – United Kingdom
The English Tea Garden can be found on the farthest left side edge of the United Kingdom pavilion, closest to the France side. Spike is pollinating Chamomile at the end of the garden closest to World Showcase’s main path.
Shakespeare Garden – United Kingdom
This garden is also at the United Kingdom, located in front of the restrooms at the right side of land closest to Canada. Spike can be seen pollinating a Honeysuckle.
Port of Entry Topiaries – World Showcase Plaza
And finally, this last garden can be seen just outside the Port of Entry gift shop, on the left side, next to the Bambi and friends topiary display. Our last sticker to find is the Rose here.
