Topiaries from the 2020 Flower and Garden Festival

Enjoyed photographing this year’s edition of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival during my recent visit. With all the construction currently going in Future World, World Showcase hosted most of this year’s topiaries.

Between Canada and the United Kingdom pavilions, I found a flashback to my college days when The Muppet Movie premiered. When Kermit the Frog popped on the screen riding a bicycle, it was the first time ever his fans saw him not sitting and his legs moving.

My next stop was France where I enjoyed the new Beauty & the Beast Sing-Along and came out to the photograph the stars of the show in all their flowery glory.

After taking a Friendship boat across the World Showcase Lagoon, I spotted the Three Caballeros in full song just before the Mexico pavilion.

Later that night, I looked for and found the new location for the Panda topiaries in the China pavilion. I found this backdrop much more photographic than the old one in front of the restaurant.
