Don’t Make This HUGE MISTAKE at EPCOT’s Flower & Garden Festival

You might be thrilled to try all of the NEW eats and drinks at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, or check out the special merchandise, but one of the best parts of the Festival is FREE and ALL around you — the topiaries and gardens!

Flower & Garden Festival

As you rush from the food booths to the rides in EPCOT, it can be easy to zoom past some of these topiaries without really taking them in and appreciating the level of effort that goes into them, but that would be a HUGE mistake. These creations have been carefully made by Disney’s horticulturists and there are even some NEW additions this year, so let’s go through all the details here!

Throughout EPCOT, you’ll find a variety of topiaries and global gardens that have been carefully created to celebrate Disney characters, the countries represented in World Showcase, and more. And this year you’ll find some NEW additions themed to the Disney movies Wish, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Coco!

Uh Oh…We Can Hear the Clock Ticking Now

Here’s a COMPLETE list of where you’ll find each creation. Screenshot it and see how many you can cross off of your list. You could even try to take a photo with every single one and turn it into your own EPCOT scavenger hunt!
