CONFIRMED: 2 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival Favorites Arrived EARLY in Disney World

Yes, we’re in the middle of the EPCOT Festival of the Arts, but we’re already looking forward to the next big festival at EPCOT.

2023 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

That’s the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival, which will start SOON (on February 28th, to be exact). We’ve already heard that four food booths are returning this year, so we’re super excited about the SNACKS. Plus, we can’t wait for the Garden Rocks concert series. The thing is…if you visit EPCOT this week, you can get your first taste of this year’s festival!

One of the best parts of the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival is seeing all the gorgeous topiaries Disney creates for the festival. You’ll see some of your favorite characters recreated as plants and flowers throughout EPCOT, including Mickey, Minnie, Figment, the family Madrigal, and more. Well, one of this year’s topiaries just turned up — and it’s Tinker Bell. You’ll find her in the U.K. Pavilion.


We’re also looking forward to six NEW topiaries that will appear at this year’s festival:

  • Asha, Valentino, and Star from Wish — Entrance
  • Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy — World Discovery, Near Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
  • Miguel and Dante from Coco —Mexico Pavilion
Mickey and Minnie Topiary

But that’s not the only sign that the EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival starts soon. We also saw the area for the Butterfly Garden getting set up. This little butterfly experience is a total fan-favorite — be sure to check it out during your visit!

We’ll be at the festival LIVE on its first day, so be sure to check back with us as we review all the food, see all the topiaries, check out the entertainment, and more.

  1. The need the garden flowers from Alice in Wonderland!! I would love to see a wonderland themed offering during flower and garden.

  2. Yes! I will be there in 4 weeks and I cannot wait to experience this festival again, as it’s been 5 years since I was there for the Flower and Garden Festival! I need Disney to hurry and release the food booth menus!

  3. Yes! We are taking our safari guide who is coming in town from Kenya! We are so excited to see his face when he experiences not only EPCOT but the festival as well!
