Photos of Every Topiary at EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival 2023

Hi everyone!

The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is now in full swing, running through July 5th, 2023. My favorite aspect of the festival is the dozens of beautiful topiaries! I have photos of all the Disney character topiaries (and animal topiaries), taken during the few weeks leading up to the festival and some from opening day. This is my 17th year photographing the festival, and each year there are changes.

Here are all the topiaries you can find at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival 2023!

The “Encanto” topiaries are new this year, located at the front entrance to EPCOT. Four members of the Madrigal family take center stage.

Here is our video of the “Encanto” topiary display.

Mirabel holds a butterfly, which lights up.

Luisa flexes her muscles.

Antonio holds his toucan.

Flowers appear between Isabela’s hands. Her dress is composed of succulents.

Signs for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival were added on opening day.

This is already the fifth year that Woody, Bo and her sheep have been together at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.

Woody debuted in 2011 for “Toy Story 3”.

Bo debuted for “Toy Story 4” in 2019.

Not far from them is a beautiful butterfly, with succulents for the first time. There are quite a few succulents being used this year.


There are more floral butterflies at Butterfly Landing.

Figment is also composed of succulents this year.

He looks amazing, especially from the side.

“The Lion King” topiary display is back in World Nature again this year as Rafiki hoists Simba.

Nearby you can find Pumbaa and Timon.

At the bridge to World Showcase, Mickey and Minnie have a picnic with Pluto, Chip & Dale.

Buzz Lightyear is back in front of Mission: Space.

Donald and Daisy stand in a garden of flowers and crops near Connections Eatery.

The giant Goofy topiary is near the Port of Entry and Disney Traders shops.

The Three Cabelleros are in the Mexico pavilion.

Anna and Elsa are in their Norway location.

Snowflakes have been added nearby.

The Troll has returned to Norway as well.


The Pandas moved to this area a few years ago in the China pavilion, which allows them to spread out and look like they are playing.

While not topiaries, the Chinese zodiac figures are back and the way they are presented this year is terrific. For the Year of the Rabbit, a rabbit takes center stage. The other figures are around the temple.

In Germany, Snow White stands with Dopey. Snow White was the first topiary to receive the new, lifelike look back in 2014.

Dopey was the first of the Seven Dwarfs to receive the new look, in 2019.

When Dopey received his new look, the Seven Dwarfs weren’t brought back to the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival until they were updated last year.

Lady and Tramp are back on the stage in the Italy pavilion, surrounded by flowers. I think this is the best location they have ever been at.

The flowers really look stunning with them.

I think Italy is the nicest place for photos. I took one of Jeff while he was recording. There are so many flowers and flower trees for backdrops.

Princess Tiana is new this year, in a gorgeous setting in the America pavilion.

Here is our video of the Princess Tiana topiary.

The Dragon is back in Japan. This dragon used to be in China with bromeliads.

The Dragon is composed of succulents.

Miss Piggy received a more lifelike look this year, instead of being mostly green.

She looks really great!

Kermit is on his bicycle.

Belle and Beast take their place in France.

Not much is different with them this year.

Cogsworth and Lumiere are also in the France pavilion. Cogsworth has a pendulum that swings back and forth this year.

Topiaries of Mickey and Minnie are at the International Gateway.

There are – as always – a lot of topiaries at the United Kingdom pavlion. Tinker Bell is one of them.

The Winnie the Pooh characters are back, including Pooh and Rabbit.

Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet are on the other side.

Piglet used to be a fully green topiary and now is all pink.

Captain Hook is with Peter Pan.

Peter Pan received this new look back in 2020.

Tick Tock the Crocodile swims in a blue sea of flowers.

There is a Topiary Heritage Garden in back of the United Kingdom pavilion. One of the two topiaries is an elephant.

Mickey is also here in topiary form.

Three geese are new in the Canada pavilion.

Also in Canada, the Bambi group of topiaries.

Flower and Thumper are the other two topiaries.

There is so much more to see at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!
