Over 70 Topiaries On Display at Epcot

The International Flower and Garden Festival remains in full swing at Epcot. Another festival-related update: last week, the final topiaries, featuring beloved characters from the Oscar-nominated film "Toy Story 3," were put into place. The final number of topiaries for this year's festival? Over 70!

Lotso, the villainous bear from "Toy Story 3," has joined Buzz Lightyear and Woody near the front flower beds. Make sure to get a whiff of Lotso - he's strawberry scented.

Near Epcot's World Showcase entrance, Lightening McQueen and Mater topiaries have been added.


100+ Topiary On Display At The 23rd Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

One of the things that the Walt Disney World horticulture team is known for is the more than 200 opulent topiary that can be found across property. During the 23rd Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, guests will be able to view these magnificent living sculptures, and wonder at the skill and craftsmanship that goes into creating them. While the creation of topiary has been around since ancient Rome, over the years Disney Imagineering has put its own unique stamp on the art we see today.

Disney History: Epcot World Showcase Then & Now

One of the areas in Walt Disney World that has remained the most constant since its opening is Future World in Epcot. Of course after 33 years, small changes are evident everywhere, but the broad, sweeping changes that we have observed at other parks have not happened in World Showcase.
