Disney has given a sneak peek at the new “Encanto” topiaries and Princess Tiana topiary that will be in place soon at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival 2023!
The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival kicks off on March 1st, 2023 – this Wednesday! Many topiaries are already in place, but we are still looking forward to these (and a few others) to be added. I cannot wait to see the “Encanto” and Princess Tiana topiaries in person!
First here is video provided by Disney.
The “Encanto” topiary group features Mirabel holding a butterfly; Anthony holding toucan Pico; Louisa and Isabela, who is created with succulents.

The Disney Parks Blog says, Disney Horticulture and Walt Disney Imagineering worked together to design, build and grow diverse topiary masterpieces, including the debut of fearless Princess Tiana from the Walt Disney Animation Studios classic “The Princess and the Frog,” plus the courageous Madrigal sisters and young Antonio from Disney Animation’s Academy Award-winning “Encanto.”
This process of pushing boundaries and growing new magic began nearly a year ago. Talented artists developed sketches, Imagineers designed 3D models, skilled welders molded frames, and horticulture specialists chose plant materials. The results are charming, whimsical – and definitely photo-worthy!

Princess Tiana’s gown is made up of two different types of ficus.
The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival runs from March 1st – July 5th, 2023. There is plenty of time to see these beautiful topiary masterpieces!
