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

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

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 features 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 have made their debut in Mexico.

Seeing the list of topiaries and global gardens, I'm curious if there are any DIY workshops or classes available during the event? Would be great to learn some tips and tricks to apply to my own garden projects.

We wish! There used to be more workshops and special tours in the before times, but none in recent years. Hope they bring that back.

Can't wait to capture the new Groot and Guardians of the Galaxy topiaries. The level of detail in these creations is always mind-blowing. Does any hobbyist photographer have tips for the best time of day for shots?

So excited to bring the kids to see the Encanto topiaries this year! They're huge fans of the movie, and seeing Mirabel and her family in topiary form is going to make their day. Thanks for the heads up, Heather!
