EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival

Every year EPCOT hosts a number of festivals. The two most popular festivals are the International Flower and Garden Festival and the Food and Wine Festival.

The Flower and Garden Festival has been around since 1994. Every spring Disney World pulls out dozens of gorgeous topiaries and flower displays and turns Epcot into a gorgeous wonderland. The 2024 EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival is from February 28th through May 27th!

2024 Topiaries at EPCOT

This is our favorite part of the festival! The topiaries can be found throughout Epcot. We love taking the time to notice the details on each of the beautiful characters and creatures. Do keep in mind that EPCOT is very big. You don’t want to have to backtrack across the park to see a topiary that you missed!

New topiaries in 2024 include Groot (Guardians of the Galaxy), characters from Wish, as well as Miguel and Dante from Coco.
