Topiary Displays at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

Topiary Displays at the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

As much as I love the holidays at the Disney Parks, I think this event has become my favorite time to visit. I love options available at the Outdoor Kitchens and the flowers and topiaries really bring Epcot to life. Welcome to the next stop on Magical Blogorail Red. Today we are discussing the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

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 so 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.

Welcome Spring Fun, Food & Flowers! – A topiary maypole scene celebrating a rite of spring with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Daisy and Pluto is inspired by a vintage Walt Disney short film. More than 30 varieties of flowers, plants, and other garden materials are used to create the scene.

    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).

    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!
