New Topiaries for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival to Include Groot, “Wish” Characters

Hi everyone!

It won’t be long until the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival kicks off at Walt Disney World! The event runs this year from February 28th through May 27th (a lot shorter than the last few years).

Disney has shared that new topiaries coming to the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will include Groot and the characters from “Wish”. This is my favorite festival of the year and I always look forward to the new (and returning) topiaries!

Read below for all the details from the Disney Parks Blog.

For the first time, Groot takes root at EPCOT! The flora colossus from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” trilogy will appear near Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in World Discovery.

This year, more than 70 topiaries, featuring a delightful array of Disney characters as well as other figures and whimsical items, will fill the park. As part of the topiary magic, guests can also look forward to seeing everyone’s favorite dragon, Figment, in the newly opened World Celebration Gardens.

Also new this year, guests can look forward to viewing new topiaries from the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Wish,” including Asha, Valentino and the Wishing Star, at the park’s main entrance. And in Mexico, we’re thrilled to share that Miguel and Dante from Disney Pixar’s “Coco” will take center stage.
