Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Topiaries & Gardens Guide (with Pics and Map)

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Topiaries & Gardens Guide (with Pics and Map)

Epcot never looks more beautiful than it does during the International Flower and Garden Festival.

And our absolute favorite part of the Flower and Garden Festival are all the topiaries and gardens that can be found throughout the park. They are a must-see piece to this festival and definitely worth making the time to explore.

Here’s what topiaries and gardens are on display, where to find them, and a handy checklist to use as you tour the park.

New topiaries for 2024

The 2024 festival will feature over 70 topiaries, including the debut of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy near Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and topiaries from the film Wish featuring Asha, Valentino and the Wishing Star at the park’s entrance.

And, also new for 2024, Miguel and Dante from Disney Pixar’s Coco will make their debut in Mexico.

2024 Topiary Locations

You’ll find the topiaries spread out throughout the entire park – including several in the newly opened World Celebration area.

Important Note: The photos featured in this post are from the 2023 Flower and Garden Festival and show the topiaries in their previous locations. As the festival kicks off in late February 2024, we will be updating this post with new photos showcasing the topiaries in their current location.
