The entrance topiary for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival was added today, with Daisy at the front and Donald with his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie making their topiary debut in the back of the display. Daisy has a paintbrush in her hand, painting the “Fresh Epcot” sign (it is also the Festival hashtag, #FreshEpcot for Twitter & Instagram). I have other photos here from today as well, along with previous articles with much more. But the big article is coming on Thursday, this is our 10th year covering the Festival on Mousesteps!
Here is a closer look at the sign.
Donald faces Spaceship Earth. He and his nephews hold gardening tools.
Huey, Dewey and Louie are new this year and bigger than last year’s debut of Chip & Dale (bigger also than they look in this photo).
Here is a look from the back of Donald and his nephews.
This is our video of the front entrance topiary display.
We learned last week that Ranger Mickey and the Chip & Dale topiaries tell a story together. More details have been added to the story. Chip & Dale snagged Ranger Mickey’s apples and sandwich!
Dale stands next to an eaten apple.
Ranger MIckey still has one full apple next to his satchel.
Nearby, butterfly topiaries have been added with the Butterflies on the Go butterfly tent in view.
Mickey is ready in the Music Garden Melodies playground.

Epcot International Flower & Garden signs are posted.
There are menus up already around World Showcase for the Outdoor Kitchens. I highly recommend the Macaron Chocolat Framboise, we tried it already and it is incredible! You can find it in France.
The Bauernmarkt will be opening in Germany, this was an interesting photo as the Cast Members were getting ready for opening.
Food items include Chicken Fricassee and Currywurst with Paprika Chips.
We will be bringing much, much more from the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival over the next week!
The Epcot Flower & Garden Festival runs from March 2nd, 2016 to May 30th, 2016.
