Topiary Displays at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

One of our favorite times to visit Epcot is during the Flower & Garden Festival. I love options available at the Outdoor Kitchens and the flowers and topiaries really bring Epcot to life. This year’s festival will run from February 28 to May 28, 2018. Find out what you can expect to see strolling through the park.

Strolling and viewing the topiaries is one of the best parts of the festival. Pictures don’t do them justice because they are absolutely beautiful. At least 25 different plants, grasses and mosses of various colors, including pink and red begonias, dusty miller, palm fiber, palm seeds, ficus and lichen, are used to create and define facial and other features of festival character topiaries. The topiary displays are located throughout Epcot. You can view them as you make your way through the park to visit attractions or countries in the World Showcase. Here is where you can find them.

    I love the new Anna and Elsa topiaries. Sometimes I get frustrated that the topiaries stay the same from year to year, but they truly upped the game this year! Thank you for sharing!

    I have to admit that I have been every time but I am always amazed at the topiaries. Especially the Snow White and Seven Dwarfs one. Amazing!

    Love the topiaries!! I’m always amazed at the detail and life-like appearance of Snow White’s face! I wish some of the other topiaries were done like that as well!

    Great, and comprehensive, post! The topiaries are beautiful and it’s amazing just how many there are. Considering how long it takes to make one, you just have to appreciate the work! Which topiary is your favorite?

    The topiaries are always so stunning, and I’m really looking forward to the new additions this year! Will definitely be printing off your printable! My son will love filling in his must-do’s for the festival (most of which is playing at the Cactus Alley and Monstrous Playgrounds).

    How delightful they are! I just showed my three-year and he asked when can we go see them!

    I couldn’t agree more Melissa, photos just don’t do these topiaries justice; the detailed variation in color and texture simply don’t photograph well. Thank you for researching the various plant-life used in their creation, it helps us to understand why these topiaries are the works of art they are. I wish I had copies of your printables when I visited the festival last year. I’m saving them for the next time!
