Spike’s Pollen Nation Exploration 2018 Prizes and Scavenger Hunt Locations – Epcot Flower & Garden

Alicia Stella 0 Comments

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!

A look at all four prizes! These exclusive patch sets each include 3 designs.

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.

Found at end of the area, near Germany

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.
