How to Find Spike in Scavenger Hunt in EPCOT

Spike the Bee is busy pollinating the gardens around the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Once you’ve purchased your map, look for Spike the Bee amongst the flowers and gardens in EPCOT during the festival! The idea is that Spike is pollinating plants while gathering pollen and nectar. 

Spike the Bee is small and sometimes blends in, so make sure you’re looking in the gardens. With other EPCOT scavenger hunts, you usually look up, but for this one, you look down.

Once you find Spike in each garden, add the corresponding sticker of the plant he is visiting to your map. The gardens are pretty well labeled, but some are a little trickier than others to locate. They aren’t always located inside the pavilions, and there are some gardens amongst attractions.

If you need some hints, here are all the answers to Spike’s Scavenger Hunt.

2024 Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration Scavenger Hunt Prizes

The 2024 Spike’s Pollen-Nation Scavenger Hunt Prizes are mini cornhole games with different designs and Disney characters. You can choose one game per map you purchase. It’s made of wood and comes with two tiny beanbags.

If you buy two maps, then you can choose two prizes. Three maps equal three prizes, etc. 

The mini cornhole games are themed with Orange Bird, Coco, Spike, and EPCOT. I will say they are pretty dang adorable. The mini beanbags are a bit hard to control, but hey, it’s a boredom buster.

I chose Orange Bird, because I always choose Orange Bird.

Sometimes prizes run out and you have until May 27, 2024 to claim your prize while supplies last. 

Spike Scavenger Hunt Tip: You don’t have to complete the map to claim your prize. You can pick your prize when you purchase the map, so it alleviates the pressure of having to complete the entire scavenger hunt in one day.

I even took the game to the DVC Lounge to play. I’m pretty much an expert now. 

Is Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration Worth It?

With Disney prices, $10 isn’t a bad price for some entertainment for little ones, especially for preschoolers and toddlers at Disney World. Plus, how can you resist an Orange Bird mini cornhole set?? My kids have always enjoyed the scavenger hunts, especially because they are rewarded with a prize. 

Spike’s Pollen-Nation is worth the price and time if you’re spending all day in Epcot. If you only have a half a day, then maybe it’s not worth it. It took me a good hour and a half to complete and that was the only thing I was doing. However, it’s also a way to slow down and take some time to enjoy the flowers and topiaries around the World.

They’ll also add the Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt as it gets closer to Easter.

Don’t forget to stay and watch the Garden Rocks concerts that are free with your park admission every night during the festival!
