EPCOT’s 2021 Flower and Garden Festival is on its way!
We’ve gotten a peek at all the menus, some fun activities, and even new merchandise (Orange Bird sipper, we’re lookin’ at you)! But even though the festival doesn’t start until March 3rd, we’ve already spotted a BIG sign that Flower and Garden is on its way: the topiaries throughout the park!
Although not all of the topiaries have made their debut yet, we’ve been able to track down quite a few! By the park entrance, we found the iconic Sorcerer Mickey with his broomsticks…
…while other Fantasia characters weren’t far! There are dancing ostriches…
…plus twirling hippos and alligators!
Nearby, some mushrooms with flower caps welcomed guests.
Further in Future World, we spotted the iconic butterflies underneath the monorail.
On the other side of Spaceship Earth, Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy have their tools and paintbrushes ready!
We’ve also got Pluto with Chip ‘n’ Dale.
And near Mouse Gear, Bambi, Thumper, and Flower have us twitterpated.
We also spotted Buzz Lightyear! He looks ready for intergalactic takeoff in front of Mission: SPACE.
We found more Toy Story pals by the Land pavilion, where Woody tips his hat and Bo Peep herds her flock.
Near the entrance to World Showcase, we spotted another butterfly topiary…
…near Donald and Daisy!
Of course, Huey, Dewey, and Louie aren’t far. Plus, is that Spike the Bee near that big purple flower?!
Now let’s head over to the World Showcase to see what we can find! There was LOTS to see in the United Kingdom Pavilion. Peter Pan and Captain Hook square off…
…while Tinker Bell flutters nearby.
You’ll also spot some fairy houses nearby!
Pooh and friends also make an appearance! We’ve got topiaries for Pooh and Rabbit…
…as well as Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore! Looks like the whole Hundred Acre Wood crew is here.
As we headed towards the Canada Pavilion, we came across Kermit the Frog on his classic bike.
Of course, Miss Piggy isn’t far!
In the Mexico Pavilion, you’ll spot the Three Caballeros! Although they’ve been missing from the Gran Fiesta Tour for quite some time now, they look incredible as returning topiaries to the festival.
In Norway, Anna…
…and Elsa welcome spring.
Also in Norway, you’ll find a Troll, but it doesn’t look like he sings about fixer-uppers.
In China, panda bears play! You’ll find a China Zodiac Topiary Garden in front of Nine Dragons as well.
Lady and the Tramp are back in the Italy Pavilion this year, after bouncing around a bit from festivals past.
And in Japan, the dragon topiary returns to the front of the Torii Gate.
And nearby, Belle and the Beast dance in front of the Eiffel Tower!
We’ll keep an eye out as more topiaries are added in preparation for the festival. Which one’s your favorite so far?
Update: The Flower and Garden Festival has officially begun and in the last few days we’ve spotted MORE topiaries! In Future World West you can find a baby Simba along with Rafiki, Simba, Mufasa, and Sarabi. We’re practically singing “Circle of Life” right now, and we have a feeling you might be too!
Over in the Germany pavilion, Snow White and Dopey are happily frolicking through the flowers.
There’s also a fun little topiary display near World Showplace featuring Minnie and Mickey!
In Future World West near the Imagination! Pavilion you’ll find everyone’s favorite purple dragon — Figment!
And that’s a look at all of the EPCOT topiaries for now. If we spot anything new, we’ll let you know. As always, stay tuned to DFB for more Disney news!
