Groot, “Coco” and “Wish” Topiaries to Debut at the 2024 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

This year’s EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is set to kick off on February 28th, and with it will come a new collection of topiaries.

What’s Happening:

  • Mark your calendars as this year’s festival will begin on February 28th and continue through May 27th for 90 days full of beautiful topiaries, inspirational gardens, delicious dishes and rockin’ music celebrating spring.
  • Each spring, we look forward to the astounding topiaries our Disney horticulture cast creates for the festival.

  • 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.
  • Lastly, over in Mexico, Miguel and Dante from Disney Pixar’s Coco will take center stage with new topiaries.

  • If you’re looking to experience all the fun of the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, we recommend our travel partner Mouse Fan Travel for all your planning needs.
