Beauty and the Beast, Kermit and Miss Piggy, & More Topiaries Installed for 2024 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival

With less than a week until the start of the 2024 EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, which begins on Wednesday, February 28, even more topiaries have appeared at the park.

Simba and Friends Topiaries

The Simba and Friends topiaries — Mufasa, Rafiki, Simba, and Sarabi — can be found in World Nature near The Land Pavilion. Mufasa and Sarabi stand on either side and slightly in front of Rafiki, who can be seen holding up lion cub Simba to the sky as he does in the film.

Timon and Pumbaa

Timon stands off to Pumbaa’s left on a rock, and is proportionate in size to his larger friend. He sports a tight-lipped smile and is covered in various shades of greenery.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie

Dewey leads the pack with a shovel in hand, and dressed in his blue shirt and matching hat.

Louie topiary at EPCOT

Louie can be found in the middle of the three, with a green shirt and cap that blend into his entire figure. He holds a straight rake.

Donald is dressed in his classic sailor garb, with brown moss for garden gloves. He holds a brown sack in one hand and a garden hoe in the other. His eyes are pointed toward his forehead in frustration, where a tiny bee has decided to land.


Geese topiaries at EPCOT

Over in the Canada Pavilion, the trio of geese topiaries have been installed. The three are formed as though they’re in various stages of taking flight from the nearby pond.

Lumiere stands tall with his arms up in the air, and faux flames “lit.” His candelabra body is covered in a yellow-green moss, while his wax face is white.

To his right is Cogsworth, in a dance-like pose. He smiles, looking toward Lumiere with his arms also outstretched. His pendulum can be seen in the middle of his torso, which is hollowed out.

Beauty and the Beast

Kermit rides on a bicycle seemingly made out of bamboo, calling back to a sequence from The Muppet Movie. His bike’s baskets are filled with bright pink lilies.

Close-up of Miss Piggy topiary

Miss Piggy brought plenty of outfit changes for Flower & Garden, based on all the luggage she sits upon in the display. She sits on a large pink trunk with an assortment of pink and purple luggage to her right. As for her ensemble, Miss Piggy is dressed to the nines with a greenery-covered dress, a fuzzy boa, and matching pink elbow-length gloves and heels.


Dragon topiary at EPCOT

The final new topiary added to EPCOT is the Dragon, found at the Japan Pavilion in World Showcase. It can be found offering a toothy grin to guests on the rocks in front of the Torii Gate.

Other topiaries already installed for the festival include the Figment topiary in World Celebration Gardens; Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Chip, Dale, and Pluto; Mirabel, Antonio, Isabela, and Luisa from “Encanto;” Lady and the Tramp; Goofy; characters from “Peter Pan;” Winnie the Pooh and Friends; Anna and Elsa; Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and Bo Peep; Flower, Thumper, and Bambi; Snow White and Dopey; Norway Troll and China Pandas; and butterflies.
