Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival Character Topiaries of the Past

Disney loving character topiary guests can unite right here with a look at some of the past Epcot Flower and Garden Festival topiaries that didn’t make the cut this year or have moved around!

Each year some of the character topiaries and gardens are either moved to a new location or not displayed at all.  Some of them are worth continuing to share, and therefore I do so here!  Enjoy these blasts through the Garden Festival past as Epcot continues to evolve into its new self!

One of my favorite things to do each year at the Flower and Garden Festival is to locate my old and new favorite character topiaries!  For a complete look at all the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival has to offer see my touring plans and food guide here.

Let’s have a look inside!

Huey, Dewey, and Louie at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival in 2019. This area is currently closed for the 2020 festival and our feathered friends have been relocated!

This area is behind walls for the 2020 Festival season due to all of the construction happening for the big Epcot transformation!  But in 2019 Donald and his nephews hung out here for the festival.

Stitch was out near Mission Space in 2019. He’s sadly not on display for the 2020 festival.

Stitch is one of our favorite Festival character topiaries.  We have a big Stitch lover here at my house.  Sadly Stitch isn’t out for the 2020 festival.

In 2019, Tow Mater, Lightning McQueen, and Cruz Ramirez made an appearance at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival as Cars 2 hit theaters.  In 2020 the Cars topiaries are not out.  I hope to see them return in future years!

Mickey and Minne greeted us as we walked into the World Showcase in 2020.  I LOVED this display. Mickey and Minne are out again in 2020.  You can find them with Goofy and Spaceship Earth perfectly placed behind them for the ultimate Epcot International Festival of the Arts photo backdrop!

This bromeliad dragon has always been one of my favorites.  Every year I’ve ever been to the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival he’s been in China.Dragon head topiary at Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

For the 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival, he’s moved to Japan with the perfect photo opp and backdrop of Spaceship Earth!

Lady and the Tramp are one of my favorite character topiaries of all time.  They’re back for 2020 and nearby but I still love the past location from 2018!

Hi, I'm Jamie, traveling mama, entrepreneur, and travel advisor. I'm addicted to Disney, traveling and exploring the world with my family, and have a passion for helping families experience the magic of travel. My home is filled with love and chaos, 2 crazy girls, 2 large dogs, and the most spectacular architect and Disney Cast Member I call my husband. We live in Florida and spend our weekends playing at Orlando's many theme parks and visiting the beach. In 2015, after helping numerous families plan their vacations to various Disney Destinations, I started a blog to answer all of the many travel questions I received daily. In 2016, the blog grew into a travel agency, and Love of the Magic Vacations was born. With a team of nearly 20, we spend our days creating family vacations around the world. What started as a blog is now a full service, worldwide vacation destination planning service. I create custom itineraries for each of my clients that not only meets but exceeds expectations. There is no greater gift than making memories while sharing the world and its cultures with your kids.
